Today I wish to share my joy with you 😀

Last night I became a Grandma. My son and his girlfriend got a little boy. This is really huge for me. This is my first Grand Kid and I feel so very happy

In short time, I will bring up some photos of the little boy

If you have followed my blog for longer time, you know, that I have two adult kids, a young man and a young woman. Both of them decided to get kids now, my daughter is pregnant and should give birth in February, so the happiness will be double up 😀

While I lay in ICU in the hospital, both of my kids visited me here in Spain. When I woke up, they both gave me these gifts by telling me, I would become 2 x Grandma, which absolutely gave me more to live and fight for. This I had in mind, while I did practice to learn everything from scratch again, like how to walk and eat by myself

Of course I wish to travel and visit the little new family in Denmark, when I can in near future

Live every day – tomorrow is never for sure

Sunset in Spain

Dear Reader

Because of serious illness in my family, I need to set my shops in vacation mode for a while, where I will be away and not able to manage my shops.

I don’t know for how long time, so if you have any wishes og ideas about buying jewelry or accessories from me in near future, please order before Wednesday, so I have a chance to create and send for you.

I will post my jewelry and accessories until Tuesday evening. After that time I will try to create some photo posts, when I have the possibility.

I will do my best to read, comment and share your posts, when I can. Please be patient, my time will be very limited at the blog for a while.

Until then, enjoy your blogging and take good care of yourself

Irene

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.

Another excursion in Spain – 10 Photos


IMG_20150510_103652

When my son visited me we went out at several trips, and here we found a beautiful place with both water and green areas

 IMG_20150510_103128

As you can see, the water was very clear

Odin enjoyed to join at the trip and followed us all over

I stand up at the road to take this photo, it was almost a hided area in a kind of valley

My son found it interesting to get around in not tourist areas in Spain

This photo is not the best, but you can see the clear water

Vary/Very – This post is part of SoCS

Badge by: Doobster @ Mindful Digressions

Now where the Spring is sprung and the sun is more visible, I will start to vary, how many posts I will upload daily. I love to stay outside, when the weather is so much better. I enjoy to be able to drink my coffee at the terrace and do a little in the garden, when I have the abundance. Otherwise just sit in the sun and enjoy my life.

Both Odin, Bølle & Hvide are very happy to enjoy the sunshine outside in our garden. The change their positions from sun to shadow, when it gets too warm. But it is very easy to see their joy to be able to stay outside and enjoy the warm now.

We have had around 22 degrees C. (71,6 F.) the last days here and I don’t need so warm clothe, when I go out with Odin any longer. Really nice 😀

I’m also looking very much forward to next month, where I will get visit by my son from Denmark. I haven’t seen him for almost 3 years now. I was so lucky to have visit by my daughter one year ago, who lives in Germany, which I enjoyed so very much. Now I’m looking forward to see my son here. In this time I will not be so much online because I want to spend my time together with my son, while I can.

For a while I have been thinking a lot about, what I wish to do with my life. I have been much in doubt, if I wished to stay here in Spain, where I don’t feel at home. Maybe because I miss my family and I wish to stay more close to them. Still I did not decide for sure, what I wish to do and what is possible for me to do. I’m tired of movements, I have had 5 here in almost 3 years, which is much too many. But it is very difficult to find a house, where the things inside is function, without fungus, with water and electricity and a garden and not too far away from everything.

I don’t wish to live in the middle of a city, but just outside is fine with me. I need to be able to use a bus and train, when I need to and all this for a fair price is not easy to find, but not impossible. I just demands time to find and then a hope to find a fair Owner, who wish to rent out for more than one year at a time. I would prefer at least 3-5 years. Then it could be possible to find peace without need to think about next movement all the time.

How often do you move house? Not all can afford to buy their own house.

Guestblogger: The lady with an eye for shiny things


Dear Readers and Followers,

today the blog entry is written by a guestblogger – Irene’s daughter 🙂

Creativity kind of runs in our family. We are from a line of women creating all sorts of fun projects. Irene is making jewelry, clothes, she knits some amazing scarfs (thanks, mama) – and she makes rolls so good that a daughter would go to Spain to get one. Meanwhile Granma is the queen of knitting, and no one could make as beautiful dresses out of pearls (!) for small mannequin dolls as Great Granma could. Me? Well, I am not mastering any of my creative talents yet, but I guess that it’s because I seek too many adventures at one time.

A little about me: I left to live in South Germany, where you find the most romantic towns and old, beautiful buildings. In other words I’m surrounding myself by architecture looking like this:

And this:

The German Christmas markets are famous all over the world for their wonderful atmosphere – and for their Glühwein (sweet, spicy, warm red wine). The season for these markets will start in just a couple of days, and then I’ll go there myself to pick up new inspiration.

Just like my mom, I also spend a lot of time on various hobbies. One day I might decide to start learning about how to make Japanese origami, and the next day I decide to sew a monster for a friend’s baby. And the day after I find out that there’s an amazing cake called Red Velvet Cheesecake that I have to try making (any excuse for baking is always welcome). Lately I am reading about how to brew beer. And guestblogging.

Irene on the other hand is putting a lot of time and effort into creating her beautiful jewelry. And she’s pretty good at it. She’s spending a long time on thinking about projects, letting the right ideas come to her. It can take a lot patience to make this. She has made it to more than a 100 followers already, which I find pretty impressive. Go mom!

It’s hard to pick favorites out of her collections, but as we all have our personal style, I also have my favorites. Like these cute, purple hoops: Image

Compliment them with the classic black dress, and a girl’s night out just started with lots of style! 😉

My mom loves gemstones – where I often choose the simplicity of the metal – and wear something like these sweet angels:

Image

But we all have our preferences 😉

If you like these jewelry, and if you are in lack of good ideas what to give for Christmas, you should pay a visit to her store on Etsy:

Cyberhugs and best wishes to all of you – and wishes that you’re also living out your dreams, whatever they might be!

The daughter.
