Looking back on July

July brought record summer heat and thunder storms, sunshine and rain, a weekend getaway to a wonderful street art event, flowers and, as was to be expected, lots of work tobe done in between all that. But the vacation season is ahead!

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!

A memory of this years events – looking back at the fun balloon festival.
We had the chance to ride in a hot air balloon once a long time ago – wouldn’t it be fun to do that again?

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.

Back to school

School is starting soon and back to school things are displayed everywhere – aren’t those VW bug bags cute?
If they weren’t so ridiculously priced, I might want one too!

By the way, the WordPress reader is not working, and I’m not able to read most of the wonderful blog posts of the blogs I follow – only a few are displayed and then it claims there’s no more. Is anyone else having those problems too – or better, does anyone know how to work around the problem?
