Such a Lovely Day

*three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy*

Hello everyone! It’s a holiday here in sunny Bavaria – Ascension Day and Father’s Day and we’re having such a lovely day. The sun is out, tortoises are out and washing are out to dry.

Our apple trees have blossoms – yay!

Nice to be in the garden, admiring our flowers.

So, what made you smile this week?

I Can Sing a Rainbow


I can sing a rainbow
Woke up, sun’s bright yellow
Happy to start the day
Swam in a blue pool
Splashing in the Jacuzzi
Ah! heavenly white foam
Went to the market
And bought all my greens
Not to forget my red meat
Silver fish, orange shrimps
Blue stilton cheese and crackers
Met my friend for lunch
I wore blue jeans and black shirt
Had green tea and wanton soup
Chocolate and strawberry ice-cream
We chatted about our colourful lives
Went back on my bike, lost my purple cap
Oh well, I can still sing a rainbow
Have a lovely day everyone!
