Find the wonders of nature

Find the wonders of nature

In this dark and grey January

it is still possible to find

wonders of nature.

Encourage yourself to notice them.

Greet the sunshine and  birdsong in the morning,

look at the cloud formation,

see some blooms, cheering up the world.

Nature is a healer in many ways.

Always look with fresh eyes,

bringing wonders to your surroundings.

The wonders of Nature are endless.

Walt Disney

What wonders did you find today ?

Weekly inspiration No 43 – Patience


 Patience is a virtue,

as they say….

In the dictionary it says:

the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.



Many problems wouldn’t be problems,

many irate exchanges,

many road rage incidents,

could be avoided if people had more patience.



Be patient is sometimes very hard,

specially when we are excited.

This could be me……



Be always humble, gentle, and patient. Show your love by being tolerant with one another.
(Ephesians 4:2)

Hot tempers cause arguments, but patience brings peace.
(Proverbs 15:18)


Nature is patient

 Adopt the pace of nature,

her secret is patience.

Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Have a peaceful and patient day!

With love

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 32 – Enjoyment again and again


I really enjoyed Spring with its’ wonderful blossom

This post showed how beautiful Spring blossom was.

Now in August we can reap the fruits…

I harvested pears from a small tree

and made pear jam out of it.

That is only from the first kilo.

I shall do more in a minute.

Nature gives us so much to enjoy!

Make the most of it!

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!
