Share Your World – March 27th, 2017


It’s a beautiful Tuesday morning over here in sunny Australia. While we enjoy calm fall weather down here in the South, up in North Queensland people brace for the landfall of a huge cyclone. My thoughts are with all the people that will be in the middle of it and I hope everyone will get out of it safe and sound.

I’ve never lived in an area where natural disasters were common. All we got from time to time where avalanches on top of the mountains and while sometimes those let to people being injured or killed it was still something that happened only on top of the mountain. I’m not sure if I could deal with living in an area where you know that a cyclone, a hurricane or a typhoon hits. I’m not sure if I could deal with strong earthquakes on a regular basis while you wait for THE one. Sitting here, typing this and having a cup of tea while listening to a bird singing its song outside and not having to worry about something you can’t control is how I like it.

And just right now I thought that there is so much I can’t control. Not just the weather, not just the earth as such. Nothing is really in my control and yet I believe it is. We are only in control of our actions. And maybe that’s also why people get used to the storms and the earthquakes, the returning floods and fires. Because they have realized that there is nothing out there that you can actually control. That the only thing you can control is how you deal with it and where you will go from there.

Funny where an intro to Cee’s Share Your World post can take you. In a way I just had one of those realizations by simply writing an intro. And now my head is processing it all. Time to get to Cee’s questions I guess and let’s see where they will take me this time 😉

Share Your World – February 27th, 2017

When I came back from my walk yesterday there was a big flock of my favorite birds in the tree in front of our house. They always blow my mind with their beauty. The colors are amazing and often I wondered why they would be so intensely colorful. Then I saw them in the tree which seems to be the tree providing them with the food they love the most. And it all made sense. The deep blue sky in the background, the intense green of the leaves and the deep red of the blossoms fitted the color of their feathers just perfectly fine. They blended in.

I love the idea that rainbow lorikeets are part of my world now. And I figured it would be more than right to share a picture of them today in my post for Cee’s Share Your World Challenge.

Had a little giggle when I saw the first question of Cee’s Share Your World Challenge today. We had a bit of a question conversation and I threw this question into the mix a week ago and here it is, coming back as part of her weekly Q&A. I’m actually curious to see what you will answer as I think that most of us move our jaw when cutting (when not focusing on not doing it). It’s something I often saw when watching the kids doing crafts…

Share Your World – February 13th, 2017

Today seems to be all about answering question after my reblog earlier today. But hey, why not, right? When I saw Cee’s today I knew I had answered them before when tackling the 100 Questions Nobody Ever Asks challenge a couple of months back. Not a big deal. I often wonder how Cee can come up with challenging questions week after week. I mean there is only that much you can possibly ask. Thinking about it one question popped up in my mind: When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)?

Share Your World – February 6th, 2017

I had a little giggle this morning as I thought about Karma and how it works. I just posted this little beauty to tease you guys sitting in the snow a little bit. And now, after the heavy rain we had the day before yesterday many  of the beaches around Melbourne are unsafe due to the faeces washed into the bay over the last two days… so no sandcastle for me today. A good little reminder that Karma does work it’s way, even for harmless little posts like mine 😉

Anyway, you might ask yourself what this has to do with Cee’s Share Your World Challenge. Well, I’m sharing a bit of my world with you right now. I actually thought I might take the kids to the beach for a quick dip in the ocean after school but that’s no longer a possibility. At least not for today. But let me get to Cee’s questions now.

Share Your World – January 30th, 2017

We are getting so close to the end of the first month of 2017. I can’t believe it has gone already. For me it will be about finding back to my normal routine now and spending some time again outside, on the beach, doing hikes, enjoying nature. Funny enough Cee’s first question in her Share Your World Challenge goes down that line. If you have not participated in this fun blog challenge, you should really check it out and give it a go. It’s honestly heaps of fun and I like how her questions always inspire me, bring up memories and allow me to share a new side to me with all of you.

Share Your World – January 23rd, 2017

Over the last two weeks the world seemed suddenly smaller than usual. So many people sharing their stories, their experiences, their happy moments. Sometimes I wish that life could be more like a great happy sport event. Bringing people of many different countries, religion and color together, cheating for the same thing. In a way everyone shared their world. And I’m going to share a little bit of mine now…
