You know that feeling that from one day to another all inspiration for taking pictures is gone, 
that feeling that there is an overload on 'lovely' things on the www, 
that feeling that you think who am I to throw more pictures on www. too....

Yes I'm dealing with those feelings. 

But actually, I'm doing fine, very fine.
 I read a book (Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, it's very good)
I finished two shawls, I'm crocheting potholders (a lovely project to do in the sunny garde)
 and I'm working on
my quilt which has a summer feel to it too :-)

I will continue my main blog and I'm searching for another challenge/inspiration for my pictures.  

Thank you for following my 365 days challenge.

Day 149

Today we had lovely visitors over.  It was a great day and we shared a lot. There was so much to talk about that I even forgot to take pictures.  
Thank you Leslie and Dennis for the lovely day we've had together.

I took this picture early in the morning with my cellphone to show my daughter the flowers I have currently on my dresser.
(a really bad shot of beautiful flowers, but hey it is a picture ;-)

We did a glacier hike today. 
It was very impressive.
It makes me very small as a human. (and humble)

Day 135

Actually, I didn't take this picture today. I took it a few days ago but I couldn't post it because this fabulous baby blanket was a gift.  
A gift made by my daughter for one of her caregivers who is pregnant of a baby boy.
I'm so proud of my daughter, she has a mild mentally handicap and autism. 
She choose the yarn herself and crocheted this blanket stitch by stitch, day by day.

Day 133

Around the corner there is a paving-stone in the pavement with a smile. 
I noticed it a few times when I cycled fast over it.
but when I turned around I couldn't find it. 
.. I thought it was something in my mind. 
Today I walked at that place and searched for it. 
 It wasn't an imagination, I found it.  The paving-stones are very old. I think from the 30's. 
There was someone working at the brick kiln who created this happy face. 
It makes me smile.

I bought this cute tiny jug at  The Reed Warbler Shop.
It is a Jane Hogben. With the blue tits in my garden it is perfect for me.
