Quince jam

Standard

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.

 

Another Performance

Standard

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…… ?????  🙂

 

Weekly Smile

Standard

Yay

Trent’s Weekly Smile is back!

 

 

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

Standard

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 bodylaughter 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!

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!
