Picture of the Week #2

Standard

Macro trial.

My little Passionfruit plant, a cut off from the bigger plant, is sprouting.

I’m very happy.

Further down on the branch.

Food for thought/life:

Smile and laugh often!
Each day 
find something happy, joyful 
and funny about life -
smile and laugh,
smile and laugh, and 
smile and laugh again.

My Teddy

Standard

Teddy’s are usually one of the first things to give when a baby is born.

I was reminded of my Teddy through Steffi’s blogpost.

My Steiff Teddy called ‘Zotti’ is as old as me.

He had so much love, he had to be mended.

You can see the straw on his left foot. He wears now crocheted slippers.

He used to growl when I pushed his chest in,

he had lots of fur.

Zotti and me

when I was 1 1/2 years old.

Zotti has lost

lots of fur

through ♥ love ♥

Yet, he has no grey hair. 🙂

♥♥♥

He is always in good spirits and enjoys the younger generation around him.

He is loved by all my stuffed animals and is best friends with

Manny, my travelling bear (a friend of Danny from America)

and STRuppi from the Stuttgarter Airport.

Who knows what they get up to when I am not there.

Bears are for life!

Did or do you have a teddy?

Picture of the Week #1

Standard

Since I have a new camera to try out, I wanted to make sure I get out and take pictures.

Bernhard who is running 365 days of pictures gave me the idea.

365- I can’t quite commit to.

So I start the weekly picture post which will go throughout the year.

The pictures posted are taken during the week I post them.

There is no theme and it can be anything photographed.

Here is the first week’s picture! Well actually 2.

Same tree with swirly lights

I am slowly getting to know the camera!

Dancing through the years ♥

Standard

We had practised for an exam before Covid happend.

Luckily we could pick up and restart when the Covid restrictions were lifted this year.

We could practice again and we did the exam.

What a wonderful way to end the year, with another trophy.

This Third Goldbar is for Street dance.

My collection is complete:
Third Goldbar in Tap dance. 
Third Goldbar in Street dance.

This means, I have completed
15 exams and 5 performances in my dancing life. 

I am proud of my achievments.

I love dancing, still from now on – no more exams…. let just the fun continue ♥♥♥.

Let’s dream and dance into the new year!

Music – my first attempts on the Double Bass

Standard

My first attempts with the Double Bass

First a short riff

then with a backing track I found on you tube. ( playing the first 12 bars only as it is repeating itself)

This is an amazing instrument.

The strings are thick and hard and the fingers need to press hard and at the right height to get the right tone out.

I am having such fun to try it and am very happy when I can play/improvise with a Blues Backing track.

I will always look at Double Bass players with great admiration.

Learn something new.
Try something different.
Convince yourself that you have no limits.
