Wishing you a very happy birthday, dear wings128!

I bet I'm already late, due to time difference, but that's just too confusing for a little bunny. Nevertheless, HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE - for the next decade at least.

And now - have some wings!


XOXOXO )

On the weekend, I learned how to make Granny Squares! I tried figuring it out from a book, but kept making mistakes. Once a month on Saturdays, one of the stores in my area has free drop-in crochet instruction, and I spent some time on it last August, but didn't quite get it. But now, it's finally clicked, and I can do it!

Instead of making more small squares, I'll keep making this one larger until I run out of yarn.

Here's a little song for you, hopefully you don't already know it ;)

Reuben's Writing Challenge

To celebrate the anniversary of his adoption, Reuben is issuing a challenge.

... write a story of any length using these words
adoption
anniversary
lap
meeting
first
brother




Mama’s milk is warm, and every sip of it leaves me content. Her purrs rock me to sleep, and her gentle nudges tell me when to wake. A pile of small soft gingers cling to her fur. I follow her everywhere, in this place she calls home.

My dreams take me far away, to a cat who wants to play, and another who longs for comfort. Mama tells me that dreams are real, and so are goodbyes. She meows that I'm her little ball of light, the goodness in her heart. Strong hands lift me away, as I take one last look at her sweet amber eyes, tears dripping from my own.

This place is new, and doesn’t smell like home. But a kind lady lifts me up, and places me in her lap. I search her face, and mama is staring back at me. She gently places me down, and waits as I go to a meeting that’s already happened in my dreams.

A first sniff, a simple nose nudge, a comforting meow. New brothers greet me, tell me their stories. I will be here a long time, always ready to listen.

New mama says I’m adopted, that a year has passed. Anniversary tuna sits on my plate, surrounded by a circle of treats, and a circle of friends.

Up a little later than planned, but I had about 230 photos of this day to go through;) I managed to reduce that amount to 44 for this picspam.
After leaving Warnemünde, Germany on Sunday evening August 20th and spending a whole day at sea on Monday, the cruiseship arrived in Helsinki, Finland on Tuesday August 22 around 8 a.m. As I had signed up for a bicycle tour that didn't leave until 10 a.m., I could actually sleep in, have a long breakfast and hang aboard before disembarking to explore the town. It was a bit cloudy, but excellent for cycling (I already had to take off my hoody layer at the first stop). Wanna come with?

Cycling through Helsinki! )

Sources: a special thanks for the information about statues to René & Peter van der Krogt for their excellent website featuring sculptures from all over the world: Statues - Hither & Thither.

I plan to select photos from my day in St. Petersburg next, but with artprojects, family get-togethers and other distractions, it may take a while until the next update. (Not to mention that I made 385 photos that day...;)

Oh, speaking of postcards; please let me know if you've changed addresses in the past year or if you're not sure if I have yours, PM or mail me: beelikej@gmail.com.

Last but not least: I'm used to traveling alone and doing things on my own, but cruises sadly don't have single rooms and I was really lucky I was able to afford paying double for this trip. I'm thinking about doing another cruise in 2018, but would like to share the experience (and costs;). If you are tempted and interested in seeing the North of Europe (Fjords? Iceland? British isles?) from a ship with a fellow fangirl, contact me! (Other travel or meet up plans are also always welcome:)

Part 1: exploring the ship | Part 2: FOOD!

P.S. I know Pippilotta Viktualia Rullgardina Krusmynta Efraimsdotter Långstrump is not from Finland, but she represents the Nordic countries here, okay :-p

I can't really put this on Facebook, but this song makes me think about Rachel. Her daughter Anna hasn't posted anything today, and yesterday she posted this -
For Mum <3
"Do not be afraid
For I have redeemed you.
I have called you by your name
You are mine"
I keep checking and thinking that Rachel could be dying right now. She could already have gone. Every time I get a text or a phone call (thankfully very few and far between), my stomach lurches.

Anyhow this particular fanvid was one of the first I found and still gives me the shivers, it's kind of perfect.
