Attitude for Gratitude – week 20

Reading this book: A simple act of gratitude by John Kralik.

Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. Denis Waitley.

From personal experience I can say it is good to look at the many things in my life for which I’m grateful. As many know I write from the heart. It is than really great to receive your comments and e-mails letting me know that my post has touched you too.

I’m thankful for this 4-day weekend. I needed a little break, to put things into perspective. To keep my fingers occupied I’ve done some stitchery. I’ve also started on another baby Jane!




Delighted that Hubby did the heavy work. Yesterday, we  concluded after speaking with our local gardener that the Photinias - 'Red Robin' -  that we planted last November didn’t survive the –20 degrees Celsius frost of last February.


Here it is being dug up. Getting two new ones delivered next week!


Hubby also planted these! A hedge on the side of the house.


Hoping these new Taxus will grow quickly. I really wanted them to be a little taller but then they wouldn’t have fitted in the car! Still, I’m happy how the side patch is turning out. For those curious, I did some weeding and racking the debris together!

I’m sure this cat is grateful for his life! Doesn’t he look relaxed basking in the sun?


Feeling upbeat after my shopping spree with mum. We went to Germany to look for some shoes. In one of the shops, I was told I had too small feet. They don’t carry my size. Northern German women have large feet. Left a little disappointed as they had some great shoes I would love to own. Guess I will be going to Brussel next time. Last year I had a very successful shoe shopping spree there! So hopefully you will find me soon on the Kleerkopersstraat in Brussel Winking. I’m sure my mum is looking forward to this little trip. I did get a nice denim skirt in Aschendorf and a tank top and jacket (which I can wear casually but also to the office) in Leer.

Little forlorn Wednesday evening! First I though it was a spell of food poisoning, but as I still feel a little under the weather I guess I got a stomach flu (nausea, diarrhea and headache). Thankful I’m able to write this post, but pleased I can take a nanna nap (longer than a power nap, shorter than a proper sleep) later in the day.
