Is it Winter or Spring?


The weather is so confusing these days.

Just now it was snowing and it felt like -2 degrees

and on my walk I find this pretty thing braving the cold .

Tomorrow it is supposed to be +11 degrees.




The bulbs think it is Spring as they come already.




We take it as it comes and

let the sun shine from our heart!


A short holiday in Spain


You all know how I love my palm trees

so we had a short holiday in Spain near Barcelona.


We stayed in Calella in Catalonia.



A wonderful beach welcomed us and

just listening to the sound of the waves was so relaxing and calming.



Calella had wonderful plants,

a lovely church,

a light house

small streets with delightful shops

and amazing houses with cacti growing up… over 2 floors


We enjoyed the warmth and the beautiful beach.

and had a relaxing time.

A truly wonderful short holiday!

Weekly Inspiration No 27 – Take care


Life is like a flower

If you don’t take care of it,

it will fade.”


I bought some reduced, dry and almost dying plants at the local DIY shop.

I wanted to nurture them and give them life again.

First they got greener with water,

then they started blooming.



Now they show me how thankful they are with many colouful blooms,

I am grateful too!


I enjoy them every day and take care of them.

They give me smiles every day!


Take care of things to enjoy!

Also take care of yourself !


Much love

from me!

My special walk


I heard from Steffi that WordPress is doing this special walk wwwp5k .

A 5k run/walk is approximately 3.1 miles long. That is roughly equal to:

  • Twelve laps around a track.

  • Approximately 6,000-7,500 steps.

  • Approximately 50-60 minutes of brisk walking.

It was any time between Monday, September 19th to Sunday, September 25th, lace up your running/walking/hiking/hopping shoes and join us for the 5k blogged about around the world!

 I participated and here is my post

I made it a mindful walk on my own.

My impressions from my walk:

a beautiful church


a cat on the windowsill


lovely coloured flowery bushes


more sweet flowers

and now for the count:



That was a lovely mindful walk,

Why not try a mindful walk yourself,

being fully present,

notice the beauty around you,

enjoy every step you do,

… and you don’t even notice how far you go!



Holiday time


In August I went on holiday to different places for short periods.

( Mallorca- Spain and Germany)

In Mallorca the palm trees were my favourite, ( see here)

In Germany the lakes for swimming were super.


This is the dress I bought in Mallorca.

With Spanish temperatures in Bavaria I could wear it again.


Here is the proof….. I went into this lake too….


yes, I did go deeper and swam, it was so refreshing.

What a view of the blue sky …… under the shade of a tree.



The flowers with all the different vibrant colours always bring a spectacular show.

I also have learnt how to make the best latte or cappuccino, with frothy milk.



Goes really well with a slice of Black Forest Gateau.sst


Life is good!

Enjoy every moment!

I do!

Hello March – Nature focus


March sounds almost like Spring already…



I have heard the most beautiful bird

singing this morning, to introduce March.

Daffodils are out.

So let’s

Notice the flowers start blooming.

Listen to the birds song

Enjoy the sunshine

Appreciate the lighter longer evenings,

Bring colour into your life in March…

 Buy flowers for someone,

 Put the red skirt/ trousers on,

Walk more, be conscious of the trees.

Enjoy the fresh air and smile.


Wishing you all a wonderful March !
