Share Your World – 7th September, 2018

Cee has offically handed over the task to sparksfromacombustiblemind in regards to the Share Your World Challenge and has found an amazing successor.  Today I will tackle another great set of questions and the challenge is as much fun as it was previously. So in that sense nothing has changed really. If you are into Q&A then definitely check out the “new” Share Your World from now on.

For those of you who have not participated so far here are the rules (that have stayed the same):


‘I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.”  

But now let’s get to the main part:

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #39 & #40

Yeah, it happened again. I didn’t get to read much last week and decided to combine my picks of the week posts this week into one and hopefully have enough great content (which I do).

I had this discussion with my son lately about how the time seems to fly by. Funny to hear a teenager complain about it too. Also interesting that he feels that way as for me it actually got so much better since mid this year. While I’m still surprised that we have already reached the time where shops put up all their Christmas stuff (personally find October way too early for it…) I still felt the last couple of months didn’t just disappear on me.

But back to my picks of the week. Hope you all enjoy them as much as I did. Have a fantastic weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #37

It’s been a while since I shared my last picks of the week and I was wondering if I should number it according to the number of the week in this year or the number of these kind of posts I put up. I decided on the last one. Can you believe that there are only just about 13 weeks left in this year? Crazy, right?

Well, anyway. I had a little bit of time to read through some of my favorite blogs and here are the posts I enjoyed a lot this week. While creating this post I realized though, that when I read them I neither liked nor commented on them… I did today though ;-). So here they are, my picks of this week. Hope you enjoy and that you all spent an amazing weekend 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #36

Another week has passed and this will be a weird kind of weekend as tomorrow there will be no getting up and racing to a soccer game. The season is officially over. Well… the official season is over. Thankfully the girls will play a couple of tournaments still and to be honest I’m looking forward to it. I had a little bit more time on my hand this week and am so happy to have connected with all of you again (at least some of you). I hope everyone is safe. Watching the news and realizing what those powerful storms can do is really an eye opener and makes me appreciate being so safe over here. But who knows what the future has in store for us…

Anyway. Here are my picks for this week. I hope your week was a good one and that you will be able to spend a great weekend with all your loved ones. Happy weekend you all…

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #33

The most beautiful days are the ones you don’t expect to turn out that stunning. Not that I expected today to be shabby, but I most definitely would have not thought that we would stand in the sun, feeling the warm rays on our backs all morning while watching soccer. The forecast was for much worse weather and much lower temperatures. I don’t really want to write about weather but I think it’s the little things that can make your day so good. Like the sun being out when you think it would rain. Or a smile from a stranger, a compliment coming from a friend. A hug. Some good food. Music.

I hope your week was a good one and that you end up spending a wonderful weekend with you loved ones. I know your eyes are set on the eclipse (at least those of you who will be able to witness it). Enjoy. It’s one of those things too…

Here are the posts I loved reading this week. Hope you will enjoy them as well. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #32

Can you believe that there are only 134 days left till Christmas? 134 days till we enjoy what is for many the most amazing holiday of the year but also when the countdown to the end of the year really kicks in. While I don’t feel like time is rushing by as quickly as it did a little while ago I’m still surprised that we find ourselves in mid August already. And I wonder if you guys are still on summer break or if schools back on? I wonder how your summer has been so far and if some of you are looking forward to winter already? And then I wonder why we often crave the opposite of what we have…

Anyway. I hope you had a fantastic week and are currently enjoying a wonderful weekend with all your loved ones, doing what you love to do. Here are my picks of this week. Hope you enjoy them and wishing you a very happy weekend… 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #31

I feel like my feet and hands are still frozen from this mornings soccer game. Sometimes I don’t know how the girls handle the cold. But then they run around, chase the ball and push hard to win their game while we just stand on the sideline and watch, trying to stay warm.

Now, here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most this week. Hope you guys like them too. Have a fantastic weekend you all 🙂

My Picks Of The Week 2017 – #30

It’s a stormy day today, winds being really strong and it’s so warm. Too warm for a winter’s day. I’m not complaining. I actually love it. I know it’s not good and we need more rain but this is a problem that we will have to deal with for a long time. I feel a bit torn, you know. Torn between enjoying the mild and dry winter but also knowing how bad it is for nature and also our farmers. Torn between feeling happy about the weather and knowing that it’s a sign for climate change and many issues to come.

But I refuse to be negative about it. You can’t change anything with negativity. It will not bring you any further. And that’s my approach and will always be. Stay positive and move forward trying to make the change that is necessary.

I hope you all had a fantastic week and will be able to enjoy a wonderful weekend doing what you love to do and catching up with people you love to be around. Here are the posts I enjoyed reading the most this week. Have a happy weekend you all 🙂
