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!

Holiday Time

Standard

Finally August and for most it is holiday time.

For me it also means time do to things around the house.

Here an update:

My wooden kitchen worktop needed a little tender loving care.

So I started to sand it down.

Now nice and smooth, I can varnish it.

Another day I made bracelets. .

I love making jewellery, make presents or sell some at markets occasionally.

I made all these with different seed beads.

 

I have in my garden an ‘elephant ear’ plant, it grows amazingly big.

 

 

As you know I love my plants and flowers.

Therefore I became a ‘friend of Kew Gardens’.

Kew Gardens is a wonderful huge botanical garden offering unique landscapes and iconic architecture from every stage of the Garden’s history.

It has a collection of living plants which is the largest and most diverse in the world growing in the gardens and in glass houses.

It is in West London and I can go by train.

I can’t wait to go, out for a day lost in the gardens……

There will be updates on this with more pictures of the gardens.

Wishing all a wonderful Summer 2018!

An Award

Standard

In August I have been nominated  for an Award and I had it in my drafts since.

I just realised that and I am very grateful to Binky  who gave the award to me.

Thank you so much and sorry it took so long.

I have known Binky for years

and as Binky,

I saw bloggers come and go in the nearly 6 years I am blogging.

Some bloggers stopped blogging,

some went to heaven,

and also I met some bloggers personally.

It is wonderful to meet Bloggers on line and face to face.

You get connected and become friends.

There is a wonderful community out in the blogging world and

I can only express my sincere thanks to everyone of my friends, readers and commenters.

You make me happy.

My friends

Standard

Hi,

here is Thomas again:

I wanted to introduce you to my wonderful friends:

 

Oups, from the planet of the Heart

and Danny, the travelled Teddy.

oups

They are best friends and usually hang out together.

 

Oups is very wise, he has a huge heart,

is always positive and features in lots of books.

My mum had many of his books, here is a taster what is in it.

 

“Loving words and a happy smile warm every heart.”

Danny has travelled quite a bit like Germany and Spain.

That is a lot for a little bear.

Doesn’t he look cool!

 

Oups likes to sit with me too!

 

We are both equally soft.

Wishing you a super day

and a big hug from all of us,

Oups, Danny and me, Thomas!

Guest post: Cat in the Box

Standard

As my mum is out

I jumped on the computer

to show you my favourite places.

From the title you can see it is a box,

yes anything enclosed, I love

additional to my mum’s lap of course.

There are always new places appearing in my house,

boxes and others.

I utilise them all.

I promised my friend Binky to show my relaxing places.

So here we are:

the box on the sofa

 

the box on the floor

the tiny shoebox

the rocking chair

 

my mum’s computer desk,

I just swipe things of the desk and get comfortable.

 

the drawer in my mum’s son’s room

Yes I am allowed

 

Isn’t it just wonderful how many places I have to relax and snooze!

So now it’s your turn,

find a peaceful spot and have a snooze.

 

Wishing you all a very relaxing weekend!
