-Eat – This post is part of SoCS


SoCS badge 2015

The heat has been tough in the summer this year in Spain. We have had several heat waves many places here. Where I live, we have had temperatures up around 40 C. – 104 F. Few days more warm, while the heat waves were heavy here.

I haven’t had much energy for a while, why it is a little while ago, since I joined SoCS last time. When the abundance is not in top, I need to prioritize, where to use the energy.

I have used much time to practice training with Odin. He is now 2½ years old and more ready to learn like an almost adult. Dogs need to be 3 years old to be called adults. I practice behavior, how to walk nice – also when we meet other dogs etc. I’m grateful that Odin love to learn new and most of the times, he responds positive. He has also found some new friends, as he is allowed to play with sometimes, which makes me happy. He needs to learn to socialize with other dogs, it is not enough, that my cats have learned him how to behave together with them 😀   They did an exellent job there…..

A little information to my New Readers; Thank you for visiting my blog, I do really appreciate that. I do also visit your blog and most often I will like at least one of your posts, maybe comment and share at Twitter too, and if I like your blog very much, I might be a new follower, but not always. Sometimes I get to visit blogs, where the blogger are blogging a lot about their religion and here I don’t do so much. Please understand that I respect your view of religion and for you to know, I’m not religious. I’m spirituel and work in many alternative ways and should I go close to any religion, it would be the Tibetan Buddhism. Few times I do like and share posts with religious topics as part of the post, but only because I really like the people behind those blogs and see them as good friends and I like to support my friends.

The autumn is also on the way, where I live in Spain. It is more cold in the nights and I need more clothe for our walks now. Still we have much sun in midday, which is wonderful and give opportunity to enjoy the garden and terrace. My roses are still blooming and are very beautiful.

Have you also had heat waves, where you live this summer?

Temp – This post is part of SoCS


SoCS badge 2015

I have been temporary away from SoCS and other kind of writing for a while because I needed to recover my energy and abundance. I live close to the Mediterranean Sea in Spain and we have had a lot of tourists in our area in the Summer time here and not all tourists were acting considerately. Many make a lot of noise, which for me is very bad. I am noise sensitive and then get screaming neighbors did not help. Some were even screaming in the nights too. I feel very happy, that those people left again and it became possible to find the peace as usual is here.

The Autumn is close here too, even we still have warm in the air in daytime. The nights are cold now and we have had a lot of rain and storm for a while now. Some days also nice sun in the middle of the day. This change in the weather gave me a cold, which also drained me for energy.

It is soon time to look for another house again, because my contract for renting this house ends the 31. of December. Right now I don’t know, where next stop will be, but time will show. I have seen several parts of Spain in the 3 years, as I have lived here.

With the Autumn come the time for indoor activities, which for me means more time for creating my jewelry. I try to find inspiration in the nature for my next creations. I hope that you will like them. As you might know, I do sell my jewelry at both Etsy & DaWanda and have also made an offer for this weekend for my readers at WordPress. You can read more about this offer here

I hope to find the abundance to develope my other pages at my blog, which include Jewelry, Personal Development and Gemstones & their Energies. I haven’t been to good to update all the pages for long time.

I’m still working to clean out of my house, what I don’t use any longer. It is clothe and everything else, that just are filling up space. It is a big job and I’m not very good to come through it all. It takes so long time, as I could use for so much else 😉

Meditation & Yoga are very important for me to find my inner peace. I enjoy to walk with my dog Odin in the nature here. We walk both in the nature and by the sea, where I often do my meditation. It is so peaceful now, where there are not so many tourists any longer. It is also soon time, where Odin again will be allowed to swim in the sea. This is more difficult, while there are many tourists and not legal many places either.

Which plans do you have for your Autumn?

Gratitude


Cher wrote a post about Gratitude yesterday and asked us to tell about our gratitudes for the day, which I will answer her here:

I feel Gratitude for:

Being alive today – given one more day

To be able to take care of myself

To have a wonderful family – even we live far apart

To have my boyfriend

To see my two old cats feeling good

To see Odin become more mature day by day – he is now 2½ years, not adult yet

To have few good friends – with whom I have contact, when we have the abundance 

To be able to use my senses – so I can enjoy our beautiful nature

That my health not are going worse

That I can take photos to enjoy later – and maybe share in here

Enough for today

You should visit Cher, she has a great blog 😀

SoCS badge 2015

First of all, I will say thank you for all your support to the competition for our new badge to this prompt. As you might know, we were 5, who had been creative. Congratulations to the winner: Hope Floats.

As you may know, I live in an area close to the Mediterranean Sea in Spain. Many of the houses here are only used in the Summer time, also some for renting, even we are many, who live here all the year.

In a neighbor house we have had a German family for the last two weeks, mother, father, grandmother, 2 kids at around 4-6 years old and a labrador. Oh my for a family, they have been very close to drive me insane with their very loud way of keeping their holidays.

Usual it is the kids, who are screeming and yelling by the swimmingpool, but in this case here, it was all in the family. I really don’t know, who did make worst of this noise but the dog was absolut the most quiet in this family.

I really don’t understand, how people can be so egoistic and not mind that there are other people, in this case many people, around them and they did really terrorize all with their behavior here. Thanks, they left the house yesterday…

I haven’t been much in my garden in this time, because of the very loud noise. It was impossible just to sit and enjoy my coffee outside. Then I decided to go inside my house and do what I had energy for instead. But we have Summer here and need to have windows and doors open just to breath.

I use to do my meditation by the Sea in the morning and later in the afternoon. At this time there are a lot of tourists here, so not peace for meditation at the beach at the moment and when I wished to do it inside the house, I needed to close all windows and doors just to get a little peace. Even then it was difficult to find peace. I have felt frustrated in this time. I don’t use to have that kind of problems here and I really don’t hope, that we get more of this kind of families in this Summer. I love to be able to use my garden more than in very early morning or very late night, which were the only times with peace outside.

What I really don’t understand is, why do parents not raise their kids to behave, so other people can stand being around them? I see this very often, it seems like people are scared for their own kids. If they don’t do anything wrong to their kids, why be scared? Parents don’t need to be their kids best friend, they need to be and act like parents, so their kids have a model to look up to. Kids need kids to be best friends with, not adults.

I find that very sad for the kids, when no one teach them, how to behave in our world. How will they be as adults? Very egoistic, I think.
