Today is …. #48

Standard

… a day for gratitude….

 

Another year comes to an end.

Reflecting on the past year.

We have dealt with ups and downs,

family or work related,

maybe illness, loss and sadness.

We are growing stronger every year dealing with emotions

and difficult situations.

 

I wanted to express my gratitude to all of you

my wonderful friends around the globe.

You helped me cope with many things,

you made me happy,

you were there for me.

My heartfelt thank you.

I am so grateful for you being here.

I send you so much love and many hugs.

Thank you for being with me on my journey!

Passion Fruit Hedgerow

Standard

Passion fruit or Maracuya is such a beautiful plant.

I do have 2 pots at home and I received blooms too.

On my travels I found a station on the Underground,

well this station is overground further East

where a whole fence is covered by a Passion fruit hedge.

Blooming and having fruit at the same time.

I made a collage of my pictures.

 

 

I keep admiring it, it is amazing

that it grows as a hedge so well in London

as it is native from South America.

I do know it grows well in Cornwall too,

as my friend blogger here shows.

 

 

Best Cat Nap Places

Standard

Dear wonderful Reader,

Thomas here,

in between my naps a quick post.

I found new places for excellent cat naps.

First, a wonderful basket, I jumped in as soon it was empty.

Second , my mum’s drawer on her Computer desk.

I thought I better look up for a proper picture.

otherwise I just relax on the bin, the sun makes it warm.

All three really comfy places.

Try them out in your house, dear fellow feline friends.

Psst… don’t tell your owner you got the tips from me.

Have a purrfect nap on your favourite place. 

Hello from me – Danny

Standard

Hello wonderful bears and non bear people,

I need to check in, in between my mum’s posts.

I have been traveling again to Germany – just a quick visit.

Having a great time eating good food,

Relaxing

 

but also helping with chores.

I used all my muscles to recycle old clothes.

I couldn’t reach so I had to be lifted up.

My mum was very grateful for my help.

At the Airport in wonderful sunny weather

I was treated to my own “Strandkorb” – Beach basket

to relax on the visitor’s terrace watching planes.

 

That was just so cool.

Big hugs from Danny for all my friends.

 

Another Year – 7th Blogiversary

Standard

My blog is 7 years old and I am sort of archiving my old posts

onto another wordpress site as I don’t really want to lose any.

(not sure though if that is really necessary)

I just cut and paste so I don’t need space for pictures on that.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Looking through old posts and bloggers who followed is nice but also makes me sad.

Some have gone to heaven, may they rest in peace, they are not forgotten.

Some have just stopped blogging for an unknown reason,

some closed their blog, it does not even exist at all,

some made their blog private.

 

I enjoy blogging very much,

it makes me happy,

and if I can reach even one person who likes a bit of my posts,

I am happy.

I don’t always have time to read all blog posts I like .

I have made amazing friends all over the world, met some of you

and I will try to meet more of you personally.

To all my blogging friends

a super BIG THANK YOU

 

 

You don’t know how much you mean to me.

You have enriched my world in those last 7 years,

you have made me laugh, cry, think.

I learnt from you, you inspired me, you supported me

and showed me what a wonderful world it is

with you in it.

 

There is so much love and kindness out there

and we need to spread it as much as possible.

People need love, hugs, appreciation, kindness, peace, praise,

understanding and self esteem.

Let’s keep it going.

I feel truly blessed with all of you around me.

 

Love you all!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you and Happy 2019

Standard

The year is going to an end

however quick it went.

All my friends close to my heart

even being far apart,

I thank you all from the bottom of my heart,

That you are still with me after all those years

Wishing you the very best with a big ‘Cheers’!

 

You mean so much to me!

Love you all!

 

Have a wonderful, amazing

New Year 2019!

May it bring Peace, good Health,

Joy, Happiness, lots of Love and Kindness

to everyone!

More of Danny’s Summer Travels

Standard

Hi all, here is Danny again.

After Bavaria,

we traveled to the Black Forest.

Wow, there are many trees…….

I didn’t meet any bears though,

well not in the forest but in my mum’s friend’s house,

I met lovely German Teddies.

We saw the biggest marketplace of Germany  in Freudenstadt

It has a church which is built round the corner.

 

 

We drove along the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse, had a picnic with a wonderful view.

then continued to the Mummelsee which is very cold but beautiful.

It is about 1060m high.

While playing around I nearly fell but a helpful arm helped me up again.

I love all these adventures and everyone makes me feel so welcome.

Our planet is such a beautiful place and we do need to look after it.

Everyone needs to do their bit.

Even a small act helps!

Please do your bit for the environment where ever you are!

Memories

Standard

Leftovers in their less visible form are called memories.

Stored in the refrigerator of the mind and the cupboard of the heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As it is holiday time, sunny weather, time to spend with the family or friends we will make memories.

We all take our cameras with us, take pictures and look at them later, remembering a wonderful time.

We should not just go somewhere take pictures and leave.

No, we should take the view in consciously, enjoy the very moment, then take a picture.

Like that when we look at the picture later, we have more emotions and really remember how it was then.

 

 

Therefore, to have great memories we need to walk around with our eyes open and brain working……to keep those amazing images alive in our memory.

Be conscious about what you see, what you feel and what you smell and firstly it makes you feel really alive and you have a whole lot more fantastic memories.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away”

Enjoy the world and the moments consciously and you can enjoy life much more!

 

 

We make memories every day in our lives, not only on holidays.

So make sure you make and give wonderful memories , not only for yourself but also for others, your children, your parents, your friends.

 

Have a memorable day!
