Another sunday post

It's warm! Too warm! Muggy! And it's raining in between. Yesterday we had 28 C° 
The lawn grows and grows and grows and Hasi doesn't know how to keep up with her little lawn mower.
She envies our neighbor who has one of those bigger ones that you can sit on...

The farmers are harvesting, at least they do what they can do between the rain showers... 
same as Hasi ;-)

I look out of the window and see that the Dragonflies are also out and hunting again in our yard. It has been raining a bit here and there during the morning, now (3pm) the sun is shining and a breeze comes from the west.
We have some small fruit trees in our back yard, one of them carries a couple of tiny Apples, they love the sun and are turning red.

As Cleo and I walk the trails in the woods we find all kind of mushrooms, some of them look very pretty. And some are really tasty too, at least for snails and rabbits...

I took some more photos in our garden, yesterday late afternoon.
Hasi found a mating bumblebee "couple" laying in the grass next to the cabin and I took a few photos of another Dragonfly sitting and resting on a brick ( I believe it is a "REd-veined darter but I am not sure)...

Anyways. Nature is always full of surprises and beauty, every single day.
And so is life.
Giving and giving and giving, you just need to be open to it.

I like to read Eckhart Tolle every now and then and here's a quote I would like to share with you all, I like it very much!
He says:

"When you drop your expectations that a person, a situation, a place, or an object should fulfill you, it's easier to be present in this moment because you're no longer looking to the next one.
Most people want to get what they want, whereas the secret is to want what you get at this moment. "

It's time to go for a walk with Cleo. 
Hasi will take Aaron out, we still go on separate walks most of the time. 
It's just nicer that way and Cleo doesn't get the chance to teach Aaron stupid things ;-)

I'll be going to bed soon tonight cause I'll have to get up very early again tomorrow morning - a bus drivers destiny... AND I still have a thousand things to do before that so I better get going now!


  1. hallo in schweden,
    bin gerade auf deinen blog gestoßen und es gefällt mir sehr gut hier.
    tolle fotos und beiträge!
    herzliche grüße aus canada

  2. Sounds like you had a very calm and relaxing Sunday. Time spent much differently from the bus driving where your mind must have to stay very active and busy. Glad to hear that you can make that time for yourself ... nice post!

  3. Beautiful images once again. Give Aaron an extra hug from me. I've enjoyed watching his grow up. ;)


  4. Ha Michi, leuk dat je mijn blog hebt bezocht. Jij maakt wel hele mooie foto's zeg!
    Is het veulen van jullie zelf?? het is een schatje.

  5. Hi Cash en Els... welkom hier op hbfg!!!
    Bedankt voor het kompliment!
    Nej, het veulen (het is een jaarling) is van de buren, wij hebben op dit moment geen paarden.
    Hij is erg lief en komt iedere keer kijken en hallo zeggen als wij daar aan het wandelen zijn... :)
