Where has”The MultiLingual Poetry Appreciation Group” gone? (Free Download)

Life is constant change. We had decided to downsize and wanted to do it rather fast. But then the shortages happened and we thought maybe it would be better to wait for a little. So while we started the downsize action I put blogging on the backburner. Yes, I had plans for the blog. And I thought about scheduling posts. But hey… I am not like that. My plans never work and that’s ok. But those ladies from “The MultiLingual Poetry Appreciation Group” grew on me. So I thought I want to give them some life. Some history and that’s Read More

If We Had A Lemonade… Sunday 2nd, October 2021

Happy #WeekendCoffeeShare all you lovely people. How are you? Please come in have a lemonade, tea, coffee or hot chocolate and have some cake. I have recently tried to bake cakes again. I started with a Gugelhupf and then used that recipe to adjust it for what Germans call “Marmorkuchen”. A marble cake in English I think. It was lovely even though I used date sugar instead of normal sugar. I am so excited to meet you and have a chat. If we had a lemonade I would tell you that we haven’t come much further with our downsizing action. Read More

If We Had A Lemonade… Sunday 26th, September 2021

Oh dear! It’s one more month and I am 51. How did that happen???? We have used the last week to start downsizing our home. So for today’s #WeekendCoffeeShare from the lovely Natalie, I am keeping it short. I can’t share too much yet. But please come in have a lemonade, tea, coffee or hot chocolate and have some biscuits. Yes, the date and walnut ones 🙂 I am not bothered by my age. To be honest, despite the major health issue last year I feel better than ever before. But I do wonder, how on earth all this time Read More

If We Had A Lemonade… Sunday 19th, September 2021

Hi there, sorry I am not capeable of writing much private stuff today. It was my husband’s 60th birthday yesterday and we had a party. But the lovely Natalie invited us to her #WeekendCoffeeShare and I simply cannot resist it. So please come in have a lemonade, tea, coffee or hot chocolate and have some left-over birthday cake. Sorry. I do not like to throw away left-overs so here we go 🙂 . It’s a lovely chocolate cake though 😉 I have to admit that I am sometimes a little like the old blokes from the Muppet Show: When I Read More

If We Had A Lemonade… Sunday 12th, September 2021

Bonjour dear readers, and happy Sunday despite everything. The lovely Natalie again so kindly invited us to her #WeekendCoffeeShare. Please come in have a lemonade, tea, coffee or hot chocolate and have some date and walnut biscuits. I never liked dates when I was younger but when the husband made a date and walnut bread a couple of years ago I totally fell for the combination. Then I experimented with my basic cookie recipe and I loved it too. I found the original recipe on a blog many many moons ago but lost the card where I wrote down the Read More

Hello everyone, how has your week been? Mine was quiet but I’ll tell you in a minute. First, let’s see what this post is all about: The lovely Natalie has invited us to the #WeekendCoffeeShare. So please come in have a lemonade, tea, coffee or hot chocolate and an apple pie. I’ve made it, and it is with date sugar, so not too sweet. But feel free to grab an apple or a biscuit too. My week was quiet even though not as productive with writing as I had planned. I wanted to outline my Hokomaha story and write an Read More

I’ve made them, and they are with date sugar, so not too sweet. But feel free to grab an apple or a sandwich too. You might have seen that I started some Read More

Work In Progress

Hello everybody and happy Sunday despite everything. I hope you can enjoy a quiet day and if you have to work, that it is as busy or quiet as it works for you. I apologise for all the changes and no content in the last couple of days. Not sure what drove me to try out a self-hosted WordPress page. Also, am not sure if it’s a good move. However, I am a curious person and feel it is great fun to try out new things. So far I am not happy with the themes I have found and the Read More
