🎏🌎 traveling 🌺


I have never been a traveling-person.
Always love to be at home .
I am SO happy my four children did not inherite that part . 
Yesterday I was at Schiphol airport Amsterdam with my eldest son to pick up my daugther Anna who had been to Florence Italy . Her flight was delayed
for hours so she arrived at midnigth instead of early evening . She was supposed to take the train to Rotterdam but we surprised her .
I do LOVE being at Schiphol and watch the endless stream of travelers coming and going . She was asked to take care of two little boys during a wedding in Florence .
My other daugther visited Berlin with friends , came home and left the next morning to fly to Marbella/Spain .
My youngest son and his girlfriend wil be flying to Portugal in August .
And I still love to be HOME but I also love to hear their stories , to see the pictures they send ...... 
I am fascinated by people who travel THE world .
My way of traveling has always been ..... 
in reading and since a few years on THE internet .
Blogging has brought me friends across the ocean , we met on the internet and started sending real old-fashioned mail too. I even met Koralee from Canada already twice here in Holland .
Facebook and instagram are a way of connecting too . Finding people without traveling !
And yesterday at Schiphol I suddenly thought wel ..... Maybe ...... Once .....
Happy last days of july to you ❤️

Happy garland part two

Today I asked my friend who once helped me to start blogging  advice because my laptop is not working anymore and blogging on my iPad is not working for me ..... 
She simply asked : " and on your iPhone ?" 
And I was flabbergasted because why did not I think of that myself ?
So I went to the AppStore and now this is my first attempt.
Already I could easily find my own pictures and use them .
Hallelujah 😊
Now I am to find out soon what it will look like .....
Because overhere I did not find (yet) how to choose letter type and sidebar 
But I am already so happy I found this 
Thanks to my sweet friend Saskia again 
She no longer blogs but is very active on Facebook Instagram !
I am a bit more old-fashioned. 
Hopefully this iPhone blogging will bring me further 

Testing to place pictures
Please let me know how it looks 
Happy week to all of you

🎏 happy garland 🎏


And suddenly
you know..............
It's time to start 
something new and trust 
the magic of beginnings.

My garden is already more a garden again 
than I could have imagened.
It's a new challenge because everything
has to be in pots now .
Lots of watering EACH day 
Learning what works and what not .

My granddaugther is a great help.
She has a habit of talking to the plants
and the flowers and the insects 
that is a kind of magical ✨ 

And still it did not yet feel 
my garden .
Something was missing .....
One day when Eva was with me
suddenly I knew :
and we made a wonderful happy garland 
and THAT was the missing part .

The picture is NOT my garden 
I am still not able to get my own pictures 
in my blog 

it is what it is 
so just the words .
When I sit in my garden now
with the garland waving and showing
me to DARE more and more .
Just to be me 

Happy july to you
