Looking back on June

June passed by in what seemed a minute – with record setting temperatures and sunshine, events and iced coffee, greenery and all that life brings.

My favorite were the tiny clay figurines in the upper left. We found them at a gardening show and just had to get them. And then there were a few days off!

Followers! So many followers!

I just got a notice informing me I have 100 followers on this little blog.

As WordPress decides to count Tumblr subscribers (6) and twitter followers (35) too, it’s not an even number. Pinterest followers (3) are not counted, it seems.

I am so humbled at the numbers of followers and subscribers – and I’m so very thankful so many great people are reading what I write and take time to cheer, like or heart and comment and answer. I never knew there were so many kind and great people all around!

Life is great, and you all make it so much brighter!

Thank you everybody!

My first award :-)

I received my very first award a few days ago – Talking Experience nominated me! She’s got a great blog I follow and I’d like to thank her very much.


What a surprise – I didn’t even know awards existed!

So I had to read up and it seems to be a bit like those chain letters you got as a child – you had to send them to 10 friends who had to send them to 10 friends each and you were supposed to get hundreds of letters back which of course never arrived. There’s just not enough friends in the world for those letters 😉

Nevermind, on to the award:

The 5 Super Sweet Questions:

* Cookies or Cake?

I’m not that much into sweets, but I’ll take cake, please!

* Chocolate or Vanilla?

I’m more of a vanilla type, hahaha

* Favourite Sweet Treat?

I love frozen yoghurt and ice cream!

* When do you crave sweet things the most?

When I’m tired, I guess. Or when I see them 🙂

* Sweet Nick Name?

Spatz is sweet 🙂

The Rules:

Thank the Super Sweet Blogger that nominated you. – Ok, done that
Answer five Super Sweet questions. – Done that, too
Include the Super Sweet Blogging award image in your blog post. – I hope I managed to!
Nominate a baker’s dozen (12) other bloggers. – And that’s what will happen next
Notify your nominees on their blog. – And that, too

All that awarding has left me smiling!


Good Friday

It’s Good Friday and I got the day off.

So I’ve got some time to sit and write in my blog. But what?

I’ve wanted a blog for quite some time, but no real theme for it became clear in my mind.

I’ll start by sharing some pictures and maybe share things as well?

Looking forward to this journey, wherever it may take me!
