The time has come

Standard

It is time for rest,

it is time for fun,

it is time for enjoyment,

it is time to laugh,

it is time to dance,

it is time for just doing nothing – sometimes,

it is time to learn,

it is time to enjoy the world,

it is time to change.

The time has come.

I am retired.

What a feeling!

I am grateful to know that I have made a difference to 

the company and people I worked with.

I leave with a sense of achievement and happiness. 

 

 

Testing Testing

Standard

I looked at a WordPress Webinar and need to try things out now.

As I learnt a bit about this Block editor I shall go through different Blocks to try.

This is a Paragraph block, so here it is just for writing …..

This is a Heading block for new headings I am using here:

Listing Block

  1. this is a listing block to list
  2. numerous things like
  3. happiness
  4. joy
  5. miracles
  6. and peace

Quote Block

There is only two ways to live your life.

One is though as nothing is a miracle.

The other one is as everything is a miracle.

I think I have learnt something and hopefully I’ll get round it and it will become easy.

There is still so much to explore.

The sofa next to the window, the best place when the sun shines.

 

Wishing you all a very relaxing day!

A very healthy and happy new Year 2021

Standard

2020 will go down in history.

with the virus

and for the UK additional with the Brexit news.

It has been a difficult year for everyone,

a year of new challenges,

a year of learning,

a year of many changes.

We will look at life differently,

with changed attitudes of what is important to us.

We need to keep on smiling next year,

we are stronger than ever.

 

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”

Philippians 4,13

 

One day our hugs

will be longer and

more meaningful than ever.

 

Our positive attitude will help us to go on,

helping and supporting each other.

May you always have a reason to smile.

Stay healthy, stay strong and stay happy.

 

Thank you, my wonderful friends for all your visits and support

during this year on my blog.

Sending you all my love! 

Have a wonderful, amazing

New Year 2021!

May it bring Peace, good Health,

Joy, Happiness, lots of Love and Kindness

to everyone!

Quince jam

Standard

Quince is ripe during this time of year.

It makes my favourite jam and jelly – I love the taste and smell.

So I decided to make my own jam again this year.

 

I could not find the Jam sugar anywhere

so I used Pectin powder and normal sugar.

It came out rather well and tastes delicious. 

 

Here is the outcome for a delicious breakfast,

well more than one. 🙂 

 

 

My plants

Standard

My blogger friends post ,made me look for my successes in my indoor plant world.

I used to kill many plants before either water them too much or not enough.

I seem to have learned a bit.  Now I am more successful.

I do love my indoor plants and enjoy seeing them grow.

See how this plant grew since January

and now:

My Plumeria indoors loves the window:

My little fig tree is adding more

and another ficus plant has grown more than 10 cm.

I am overjoyed with my greenery

and enjoy every single leaf.

 

 

 

 

Hello October!

Standard

Welcome October !

An Autumn month with many beautiful colours.

The Motto for October is:

Smile

Every year, on the first Friday in October we celebrate World Smile Day® since 1999.

Do an act of kindness,

make someone smile today.

Make the whole world smile.

Even if you can’t see the smile wearing a mask,

your smile shines in your eyes.

Make October a Smile Month,

there is lots to smile about,

there is lots to be happy about.

Even in hard times

find the small things,

beautiful things,

things which mean a lot,

and make you smile.

“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

“When things are difficult, smile by faith.

Don’t wait until you feel better.”

Short Retreat

Standard

During this beautiful hot weather in Britain

I went for a short retreat

to Norfolk to Thetford Forest.

Our accommodation was very secluded, and really amazing.

 

So quiet and peaceful.

This is so recommendable, just relax and chill.

The Lynford Arboretum just next door,

perfect for our evening walks… trees everywhere.

We did lots of walking in the forest and at Lynford Waters.

At night. as there was no light pollution at all,

we even saw shooting Stars from the Perseid Meteor shower.

Even a short getaway is a great rest and energy giver.
