Managing to express feelings in pictures is hard. So I tried to come up with some of the pictures related to moments I felt happy. Happiness can be as simple as looking at a beautiful flower, having a candle burning, a beautiful sunset, traveling or a good cup of coffee…

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 20 – Coffee

When I was younger and we still had the horses my morning on my days off usually looked like this: Getting up, feeding the horses. Then having a cup of tea and breakfast. Then cleaning out the stables and then having a coffee before riding out. Especially in the colder months of the year that cup of coffee tasted extra good. I also remember very clearly being a child and waking up to the smell of coffee my mom had already made. It was almost like an alarm for me and although then I did not drink coffee it made me hungry for breakfast and I just loved its smell. I don’t remember when I started drinking coffee but I became what I would call a coffee addict. When I was at work and it was really busy coffee kind of became my energizer. Eventually I realized that I had to slow down, that I had to cut back on the amount of coffee I drank.

I’d Buy You A Coffee…

Have you had those conversations in your comments in which suddenly one of you writes “I’d buy you a cup of coffee if we would be able to sit down together and enjoy one”? I had a couple of them and then decided, more out of a joke, that I could put a widget up on my blog (it’s all the way down after my posts…) so people could actually buy me a cup of coffee if they’d really wanted to. And guess what: Every now and then someone does. Each and every time it puts a huge smile on my face. I just got another cup of coffee and just wanted to say: Thank you so much! One day we will have a cup of coffee together! And then I buy… 😉


Share Your World – 2016: Week 21

It’s a nice and quiet morning so far in our house. The weather is a bit bla at the moment but that doesn’t mean it will be better later as here it changes multiple times of the day. I so want to take the dogs on a long walk along the beach today. I have not been down there for a long time and really miss it. Walking along the beach, especially when the weather is not perfectly fine, is such a relaxing thing. I feel that the coming and going of the waves sort of takes you over too. It makes you let go of things and take on new thoughts. Often, when I’m stuck in my thinking and go for a walk along the beach, I come back and the knot is gone. It flows again.

But now back to this post. Stop counting the hours and question your ability to handle the time difference. You are right, by the time you read this my morning is long over and I most probably had my walk along the beach. It’s what happens when you schedule posts… And this one was meant to be my evening post.

Anyway: Before I head to the beach it’s time for the amazing Share Your World Challenge. Thanks Cee, for a couple of fun questions once again.

I thought long and hard about if I should write this post or not. I tell you quickly why I first didn’t want to write it:
