Our Beautiful World - Happy and Sad

Happy because it is a wonderful day today and Valentine's and very sad because it will be the final blog post for Our Beautiful World ... no new challenges anymore :-( I do understand and want to thank all of you ladies so much for all the hard work and the enjoyment.
So I thought I make it as sweet and loving as possible ... I wish all of you a truly lovely and beautiful day! Petra.

My Sunday Photo - Reflection

Today I  got a very big surprise. Some months ago I moved not only house but also country and it seemed that I had lost my little Pentax Optio RZ10 camera. Yes, it has not been the youngest anymore and I  do have a big DSLR now but the photos were not bad at all and it had been handy to have one for the pocket.
Last night I opened my last box and at the very bottom ... guess what ... there is my little camera entangled within a bunch of cables .... so happy. And, of course, I had to try straight away if it works ... I am happy to report it does! Have a good start to the week, Petra.

During the night it rained a lot. The rain left some puddles in the front of my house showing a reflection of my pot plant.

My Words and Thoughts - The Voice/Die Stimme

This poem was inspired by my Dad who lives in Uffenheim, Bavaria and LOVES to write poems for celebratory occasions - in rhymes. I am not a rhyme person but I tried to put into words how I feel about my Dad and his wonderful ventures into the world of writing.
Dieses Gedicht wurde von meinem Papa inspiriert, der in Uffenheim, Bayern lebt und es LIEBT, Gedichte f├╝r festliche Gelegenheiten zu verfassen - in Reimen. Ich kann nicht reimen, aber ich habe versucht, in diesem Gedicht audzudr├╝cken, was ich ├╝ber diese wundervolle Liebhaberei meines Papa's f├╝hle und denke.

Have a lovely weekend ... ein sch├Ânes Wochenende Petra.

Die Stimme 

Wer hat sie nicht schon geh├Ârt?
Wer hat sich nicht schon gewundert?
Wer hat sie nicht schon bewundert.

Die Stimme von Uffenheim.

Zu Gedenktagen und Feiertagen
Getragen und vorgetragen
Feierlich, laut und deutlich
Dunkel, voll und nicht zu ├╝berh├Âren.

Auf jeden und jedes abgestimmt
Auf's i-T├╝pfelchen und in vollendeten Reimen
Erdacht und erstellt im Geheimen
Feingestimmt und sch├Ângeschrieben im Schatten der Windm├╝hle.

Ohne Fehler und Z├Âgern
Ab und zu und doch nicht oft genug
La├čt sie uns noch ganz oft h├Âren

Die Stimme von Uffenheim.

Do you remember the song: Baby, it's cold out side ... ? This is what it is here in Germany. So cold .... stay warm and safe, Petra.
