Pancakes/Ice Cream?

Summer’s here! June 21 marks the summer solstice in this part of the world, which is the day of the year with the most hours of daylight. This always make me feel good and happy. I bought some extra vanilla and coffee ice cream to help me cool down next week. Weatherman predicts the first heatwave with temperatures going up to 38 degrees Celsius. Looking forward to having breakfast and reading the newspaper outside in the garden.

Pritty, Mr. Bowie’s mom, prefers pancakes but it looks like we are going for ice cream next week…

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Not Amused

I really want to go out! Mr. Bowie is not amused at all because he has to stay inside. A gardeners team is taking care of the annual garden clean up. Big and dangerous machines are making a lot of noise outside. We had to wear ear plugs indoor to enjoy our espresso and treats… Nevertheless we will make up for it tomorrow! Glad the summer is not ending…


Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Last Friday


Summer is here to stay. What an upbeat mood I’m in today! Last Friday was the warmest day of the year so far, with temperatures near 34 degrees Celsius (93 Fahrenheit). It was a perfect day for ice cream and banana milkshake. Mr. Bowie looked a bit upset because he got purified water instead of catnip ice cream.


Something Within Us

Everything that has a beginning has an ending. Looks like my 3 week summer vacation is over today. Spending quality time with my family, friends and Mr. Bowie. I’m totally depressed! How can I overcome this post vacation blues? Why must all good things come to an end? Okay, all things come to an end eventually, not just the good ones. Wait a minute, I got to realise that my vacation doesn’t necessarily end here. There will always be some good times ahead.


Learn and appreciate what you have. Let go of guilt, pride, negativity and perfectionism. Move on. Remember, happiness is not something you postpone for the future. It’s something about the here and now. It’s something within us. Am I right, Mr. Bowie?


The summer has finally arrived! Finding a good gardener at the right price can be a problem, even for Mr. Bowie. A good gardener should have good practical skills, creativity and an eye for detail. Overall I’m really satisfied and pleased with the work Tasha, Jurgen and their staff did.
My vacation starts in one week. I’m going to take a time out and keep an eye on Mr. Bowie playing in the yard. Okay Mr. Bowie, come out, come out, wherever you are…
