#PoeticTuesday – 65

The Wind Blows Stronger

The wind blows strong around my ears
The days have gotten colder
Daylight’s making itself scarce
More textiles now, around my shoulder

Fall Impressions

The picture above shows one of the views I am having from my house.

Three weeks ago, we spent some wonderful days in a spa hotel in the German/Austrian Alps. Since I know that many of you would like to see some pictures, I am happy to share some of the impressions with you.

A Little Bit of Fall

We have not had many sunny days this October yet, but lately, it is simply gorgeous. The temps are warm again, and the colors seem to explode. Two days ago, I drove through the country, and I was completely surprised, how colorful everything turned within only a couple of days (unfortunately, I could not stop and take photos). Also, the sky is showing up in its most firey clothes during sunrise and sunset these days.

Paxmal, Walenstadt (CH)

YYesterday, we short noticed took a trip up to Paxmal. It is located above the city of Walenstadt at around 1’260 m (4134 ft) above sea level in front of the mountain chain of the Churfirsten, Switzerland. It is a monument built by Karl Bickel (1886 – 1982) from 1924 – 1949. Bickel recovered from tuberculosis and promised to set a monument for peace. Amazing how this man built that monument all by himself, fulfilling his promise.

Enjoying A Gorgeous Summer Day🌞🏔🍧

After about two weeks of rain, we are enjoying our first real summer weekend. Yesterday, my husband and I decided spontaneously to take a trip to a nearby alpine lake (the Voralp Lake) in Switzerland. It is another beautiful and scenic place that is only about 25 minutes away from where we live. We walked around the lake and enjoyed some coffee, cake, and ice cream at the end. I enjoyed this spontaneous trip and the visit to the small lake restaurant so much. It felt like being on vacation, and it energized me like that.

Meeting a Blogger Friend

View towards the Kurfirsten and Lake Walen in the background.

After almost four years, it was yesterday again that I met a blogger friend of WordPress. Erika and I (this is not a mistake, we both are Erikas) have been following each other for about five years. After a while, we found out that we live almost around the corner from each other. So, yesterday we made it happen. It took me only 25 minutes to reach Erika Laufer of Lauferei.com in her beautiful Swiss village close to Lake Walen.

First Snow

Last Saturday afternoon, it started to snow, and it snowed throughout Sunday. After no snow at all last season, I enjoyed it coming down again. I thought I’d share some photos of the landscape but also of our Christmas lights within the snow.

Garden Views

Due to the big birthday party last weekend, I could not make it to schedule my regular posts for this week. But instead, I share some photos of my garden again and how it changed over the past two months. New flowers appeared and have blossomed, and some others have grown into large bushes. Let’s go for a quick tour.

My Little Paradise – #5

Here we go with the last visit to my little oasis. I began to replant this part of the garden this spring. Therefore some plants are only settling. Still everything is developing and most plants have grown even bigger than they look on the picture. Also here too, I took pictures between May and July to catch the flowers at their most beautiful stages. I leave you with a collection of impressions.

Health & Beauty – Thyme

arrangement-2772438_960_720

Essential oils are the pure and concentrated essences of plants. Used are petals, roots, twigs, leaves, resins depending on the plant. For thyme oil, the haulms are the part of the plant that’s used. Since fall has already taken its seat again the main season of colds and flu is on the way again. Thyme oil is not only very effective for disinfecting the respiratory system when a cold has you in its tight grip, but it also works wonderfully as prevention from getting a cold since it disinfects the air for example by evaporation the oil in a fragrance lamp or diffuser (at home but also in offices or public places).

Dreamwalker's Sanctuary

Lily~Fish Pond in the Garden

Feeling the rhythm as I sit on the swing

Allowing thoughts to drift, to see what they bring

Cloud watching the sky as butterflies’ flit

Pondering the beauty as in creation I sit

~~

The Fish in their world swim beneath lily flowers

While frogs sunbathe too, no concept of hours

Each Petal, perfected in meticulous precision

As I sit and swing, enjoying this transition

~~

We create in our hearts, with our thoughts and minds

For each it is different, our manifesting finds

For that which we think, the energy creates

So be mindful of thought, for it opens many gates

~~

My heart it is peaceful, my mind it is still

We are ALL powerful, all subject to Will

Know we are Sovereign much more than we know

Don’t give away your power to the fear-based cabal

~~

The time now is here…

Just A Thought…

nature-earth-quotes-02.jpgThe lung of our planet is burning for weeks. There has never been a bigger catastrophe on this planet which affects not only the region but the whole world. I think we cannot even imagine what it means when thousands of fires are burning and thousands of new fires are developing each day. How can this be gotten under control? Does it really mean that the fires only cease when there is nothing more to be burned unless it rains heavily for days or even weeks? Read more ›

May There Always Be a Spring

wwYtW.jpg

Over here it feels like life is pulsing through each and every fiber of nature lately. Spring is visiting and the flow of energy is clearly sensible. The mood is lifted and the whole system gets a power boost. When I was on a walk today I saw the first storks arriving at their homes. What a feeling since they are one of the clearest signs of spring to me. Read more ›

Health & Beauty – Rosemary

Essential oils are the pure and concentrated essences of plants. Used are petals, roots, twigs, leaves, resins depending on the plant. For rosemary oil, the haulms are the part of the plant that’s used. It is another very versatile oil. Remember, I mentioned it as an optional part of my hair mask recipe for hair growth because it stimulates the root of the hair.  Read more ›

What A Welcome!!

20170809_155119.jpg

I just have to quickly share a video. A huge thunderstorm went down followed by a scary and harmful hail storm while we were looking for a restaurant for dinner tonight. It shocked me that while we were standing under a roof close to me a pigeon just fell on the street hit deadly by the hail. The hail stones got bigger. It became really dangerous and we had to take shelter inside a restaurant. I took this video to illustrate what I mean.  Read more ›

My sweet friend Shamira of SmilingNotes published a very inspiring post about 50 Fun Summer Activities. One of her ideas was building a fairy garden. I love fairies and I already have a circle of fairies around my patio.
