Thank you little plant!

Standard

This little plant is standing next to my computer screen.

I received it as a get well present last year in October.

It was in full bloom then.

I nurtured it and loved it even when only green.

Now as a thank you for June just ready for my Birthday

it gives me more blooms.

 

 ♥ Thank you my little flower ♥

More craft with shells

Standard

While sorting I find all different things.

Using some imagination I can make something new out of it.

I had a small tray which had once candles on it.

The candles are gone, the tray remained.

The wonderful shells, received from my sister from an exotic holiday, I had displayed on a plate.

My idea was to make a wall hanging out of it.

So I filled the tray with PVA glue,

arranged the shells as I liked, then carefully sprinkled sand in between.

Once this was dry, I glued the last shells on the top.

Now all dry and I have a new picture.

 

It will go nicely in the bathroom and gives this holiday feeling.

When you find odd bits and bobs why not

recycle and make something new out of it.

It is fun to create your own ideas.

Plan for the week

Standard

I think I’ll pace myself this week.

I’ll start by being quietly wonderful on Monday

fabulous on Tuesday

brilliant on Wednesday

awesome on Thursday and

then slowly build up to being magnificent by Friday!

 

Why not follow this example and have a great week ahead 🙂

Have a magnificent weekend!

Story Time

Standard

We all have unique gifts, we are all valued and needed.

 

The sad earthworm.

 

Once upon a time there was an earthworm.

Often he was just lying there, feeling sad to be only an earthworm.

Why can’t he be a bird or a fish or a human being.

Each being seems to be able to do something special, each being seems to be worth more than just a simple earthworm.

One day a girl came by. She saw the worm and picked him up. He felt worried and thought that was the end of his life.

Instead the girl put him into a jam jar. There was soil and some leaves, actually it was quite comfortable even though a bit small.

The next day the girl took the worm to school. She was asked to stand in front of class to deliver an essay.

With astonishment the earthworm heard the girl talk about earthworms.

How earthworms live, how important they are and that they do something unique.

To make fertile soil out of leaves and dirt.

They are the earthworms which make make sure that constantly new things can grow in fertile soil.

And when the girl released the worm later that evening back into the garden, he was the happiest worm in the world.

 

 

I love the short stories of Tania Konnerth.

Growing, my joy!

Standard

My garden is my joy.

I love things growing and I take care of them.

I check how my plants grow.

We are lucky the weather is good and

I spend lots of time in the garden admiring my babies.

My Canna Lily, I received from a friend last year is coming again.

I check how my planted seeds grow.

I had Cornflower seeds,

they grow beautifully.

I tried seeds of radish,lettuce,

carrots and onions.

They are coming on fine.

It is such a success story.

Every little success is a feel good factor.

Don’t expect too much of yourself.

In the words of François and his yogi ladybird:

What is your success story for this week?

 

Take care my friends and stay safe.
