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?


What’s in a name

I came across this fun fruity drink in Copenhagen – what a name!

It cheered me up a lot and I needed some cheers yesterday when I found my favorite website – 43Things – was down again. But hooray, it’s working again today – I went to bed yesterday with a heavy heart. It’s strange, but I feel so connected to all those kind people here and on 43T, that I feel sad when I can’t read what happened and connect.

It’s a new day, and I hope today all is better – all is well 🙂


Central Cemetary

Yesterday, we visited our local cemetary and brought flowers and candles to my grandmother’s and mother’s grave.
The sun was shining brightly and birds and squirrels were sunning themselves.
Very peaceful and beautiful – I got this picture of the main building, just under renovation.

If you simply tell the truth…

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!

Walking a forest road

A memorial cross – a Marterl – we came across while walking along a forest road to a nice forest restaurant.
What a lovely surprise! You see those crosses often here. I wonder what’s the story behind this one…
