Hello September!

Welcome September !

The Motto for September is:

 

Make today awesome that yesterday gets jealous. 

 

Enjoy and celebrate each day,

be purposeful,

be intentional,

bloom every day,

be happy.

Make every day count.

What you do today, may impact your future,

and will definitely create a past.

Create a past you love to remember.

 

 

Yesterday is gone.

Tomorrow has not yet come.

We have only today .

Let us begin.

Gooderstone Enchanted Garden and Oxburgh Hall – amazing gardens and walks

Standard

A trip to the Enchanted Water Garden in Gooderstone

We walked over all bridges and enjoyed the peaceful garden to the full with its’ colour

and smells.

 

Oxburgh Hall

At this time of year all gardens are so colourful and have such beauty.

We did the long walk through their forest which was so refreshing

and such a great walk watching many birds and small insects around us.

It leaves me breathless walking through.

 

Short Retreat

Standard

During this beautiful hot weather in Britain

I went for a short retreat

to Norfolk to Thetford Forest.

Our accommodation was very secluded, and really amazing.

 

So quiet and peaceful.

This is so recommendable, just relax and chill.

The Lynford Arboretum just next door,

perfect for our evening walks… trees everywhere.

We did lots of walking in the forest and at Lynford Waters.

At night. as there was no light pollution at all,

we even saw shooting Stars from the Perseid Meteor shower.

Even a short getaway is a great rest and energy giver.

Standard

Miracles happen every day!

There are only two ways to live your life

One is as though nothing is a miracle

the other is as though everything is a miracle.

Wishing you a miraculous August!

 

 

Craft trials

Standard

Time for something new:

I tried the other day to paint a stone.

It was a very porous stone.

This is my result.

Stone

It was rather hard, I’m not so good in drawing so this will be my only one.

It looks nice in the garden, I varnished it to weatherproof it.

I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought,

so I’ll stick to the crafts I do better and enjoy more.

Like knitting  a little fragrance pouch for example.

It is good to try different crafts out.

One way to find out what you truly enjoy.

Don’t be so set on your ways that you can’t grow.”
