Corner View: Summer/ Happy Hippie

Bare feet, (mostly) fresh food, nature, simple living , freedom...Summer brings out the hippie in me
(which isn't too difficult, it's right under the surface :)
Watching this made the feeling even stronger.

Night Animals

Finally, in the middle of the night, the tempature has dropped that much that it's bearable again.

Finally we can be PRODUCTIVE.

Red Summer

Feeling hot hot hot. Bought some refreshing in style. It doesn't do the trick with two guests in a small appartement.
I feel like painting with tropical colours.
And like swimming.
Have a great hot weekend.

Corner View: Noticing

Having 'eyes' all over can be exhausting at times, but I wouldn't miss the ability to 'see beauty in everything' for the world.

For today: Try to notice new things by changing your perspective, bend your knees to see the world of a child, lay down for the perspective of a small animal, climb on a chair to see your house from a Pippi point of view..Have fun!
Go and have a look in the sidebar 'corner view' !

New season & new tool

I love my new tool. I bought it for the pink elephants* but now I just want to sticker my whole place :) Happy summer people!
(*repainted them all today in a different shade, lot of work but once you are irritated by something better do something about it, right?)

I don't even have words for the relieve I'm feeling. After two weeks of emotions, of waking up with a stone on my stomache, of trying to focus on positive things, of praying...
good reports!!! I had to walk it into my system.
(& just found out that sweet youngest siss managed to graduate despite the stress!!)
All is gonna be okay.
Tonight it's time to CELEBRATE!

Corner View: Daily

Daily Bread..
Baking my own bread, for me is the best therapy there is. (I cheated a little bit here by using a pakage. NO? Yes, I'm sorry). It's a good work-out and so rewarding! I tried all kind of variations lately. Raisins & nuts, olive and herbs, plain with butter and honey, cheese, but the one I like the best untill now is with raspberrie and honey. Yum.
P.S. More daily pleasures can be found in the sidebar under 'corner view'

My brother came over tonight and we decided to go to the theatre! ( I watch a lot of theatre-related programs but I hardly ever go somehow) The play was repulsive, intens and impressive. An experience..
I have all kinds of thoughts about the play. And acting. And I would have loved to share them if it wasn't as hot here as the desert was in the end of the play! A cold shower and my bed is all I can think of right now.
(But feel free to share your thoughts..:)

From where I am sitting/Sharing

I wanted to skip todays cv. I didn't feel like anything. Monday morning my father got a very worrying phone call from the hospital. Now I am living between fear and hope. One moment I am sure everything will be okay, the other moment...
From where I was sitting I became aware of these symbols and decided to get out of my shell a bit and share. Hope you don't mind.. So here is a little reminder of Faith, Hope and Love.
