There were beautiful Quinces in the shop
perfect for wonderful tasting jam.
They were extremely hard to cut – all worth it in the end.
The jam came out so good, tasting and smelling so yummy.
This is my favourite jam followed by Apricot jam.
Have you ever made it or tasted it?
Quince Jelly is amazing too.
It was time again for a new dance performance
Tap and Freestyle.
For Tap we did a Tango – routine to
‘Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps’
followed by another routine to ‘my future husband’ – Megan Trainer.
I loved every bit.
This was the outfit!
For Freestyle we danced to ‘Shut up and dance’
we wore a lovely red skirt with petticoat, silver belt, white T-shirt and red scarf.
I did love the petticoat, it makes dancing even more fun!
We also did a great routine to Justin Timberlake – I got this feeling:
We had a fantastic time, so did the audience.
Broadway next…… ????? 🙂
I am smiling about my progress in crocheting.
I love this cardigan I saw on Yochet’s blog.
After a couple of hurdles, as all is American….
translating it into English/German stitch names and converting the sizes I finally started.
I am smiling today that it is nicely growing.
Well worth a smile
don’t you think?
Laughter is the pole
that adds balance to our steps
as we walk the tightrope of life.
Laughter is the best medicine:
Why Laughing Is Good for Your Health. An old Yiddish proverb says, “What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.”
A good laugh can be compared to a mild workout, as it exercises the muscles, gets the blood flowing, decreases blood pressure and stress hormones, improves sleep patterns and boosts the immune system.
so here is today’s dose for you:
Sleep with an open window tonight!
1400 mosquitoes like that.
420 mosquitoes commented on it.
210 mosquitoes shared this.
One mosquito invited for the event. 2800 mosquitoes will be attending the event.
Have a fun day and laugh a lot!
This time I made a wind chime
with odd leftover beads
and a twig.
It came out so nice, I did not put it in the garden but hung it in the front room as Art.
I went out by car and did something…
it was so colourful
I took pictures….
Can you guess what it was?????
As it is Wednesday and I usually post on a Wednesday
I will put my favourite pictures up as it is also my Birthday today.
It is the 13th, so
13 things I love:
make people happy
beauty visible and from the inside
a good cup of tea
and my blogging community for the last 6 years!
Thank you for being here- Big Hugs
For a good start of this wonderful day
have a bowl of Sunshine and Love
and celebrate with me!
Danny travelled again for the weekend.
On the plane with a snack
in the car to the house.
In Stuttgart Airport Danny saw a many bears and talked to some.
He made friends with one, called Struppi.
Struppi then joined us on the flight back to London.
The bears had a lovely flight home and Danny is busy introducing
Struppi to everybody and the English life here.
Our bear family has grown!
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.
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!
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!
