Luring Summer with Colors

It’s May and we already had some taste of summer, but all in all spring has been rather rainy and cold. So I can’t wait for sun and heat, no jackets, shorts, sandals…… This weekend is Mother’s Day – as everybody knows – and Lennard needed a present for his mother and I as his…

The butler, the bounty hunter and the wardrobe

First of all the Movie ‘The Help’ mysteriously turned into ‘The Butler’, a great journey through U.S. history in a soft tone and without too much pathos and with a great cast even in the smallest parts. Even Darth Vader liked the movie…but he didn’t make it to the end, he was Cherry Coke flavored…

Le danse de Mardi Gras

I’ve already told you that my birthday next Sunday will have a Mardi Gras theme, it has had a Mardi Gras theme for at least 4 years and I really like it cuz my sista is going to make beignets and a King Cake for me and they taste like heaven!!!! And I love Mardi…

Lost in Relocation – A Star Wars Story

Today is a Star Wars day because Rogue One is at the cinema now, so I need a Star Wars post. Looking at old photo-files I found this and there is a sad story behind it (not really sad, just strange) Years ago I made my sista two shopping bags for Christmas, one was with NIN…

Of Apes and droids

So today we’ve opened the first door of our advent calendar and of course it’s  Star Wars calendar! And what was behind door number one? A chocolate R2-D2!

We’re in this together now

So my sista is in Italy sending me beautiful pictures….and I’m sitting here alone all the time…so I’ve been busy sewing the Star Wars night gowns and they look really nice. And now here’s a picture of Hannibal and Lennard They are such a nice couple, they really love each other. Lennard has been alone…

Let’s face it: we’re getting too old for this stuff

Long time ago my sister found some Star Wars T-Shirts on the internet she really liked. She showed them to me and said: “These prints are great, they would be perfect for pyjamas!” Me: “Okay, then why don’t you just buy them?” She: “I can’t buy them, they are for kids only, they are far…

Ceres sings a foggy dew

Here is an old picture I like very much. The Amaryllis was a gift, normally I don’t buy flowers for our home (garden is, inside no), I always manage to kill them at once… But this wasn’t the picture I was looking for (enough Star Wars for this post). THIS is the pic I want…
