At the Moment #7/2021

currently in June at the moment craftaliciousme seeking creative life

It is 23 minutes before midnight. I am sitting on the balcony and as every year I am thinking and reflecting. It is my way of celebrating turning one more year older. I am not really scared of getting older. For me lighting another candle on the cake is actually something to be happy about. To celebrate. I do think we should and can appreciate making another trip around the sun. Back in the Middle Ages, heck even in some countries I would not turn that age. So yes, I am happy. But I am stalling. Here is my current snapshot of feeling, emotions and things

.I like:
… what this day had in store for me. Many many happy moments, lots of nice messages and a full heart at the end of the day. I could not be happier today.


May Reflections and June Intentions

Grace 2021 time for those resolution green leavery

I can finally sit outside on the balcony again and write my blogposts. It has been a cold and rainy May but with the start of June it is looking like the sun will stay. Or at least the warmer temperatures. Also it looks like Covid is finally on the decline. By Friday life is getting more or less back to normal. While I am not sure what that entails it is definitely a bit of a happy message to receive. So let’s start the new month with May reflections and June intentions. Let’s go.

But before I dive into that here is my favorite quote this month.


May Books – What I read

It was almost to be accepted that after having a good reading month in April that May wouldn’t be so glorious. I have started a few books which I abandoned after a few pages because they were either so boring or just written poorly. Or maybe I just wasn’t feeling them. I also struggled with one book I was really looking forward to read and that just didn’t do it for me. I don’t know I guess that happens. Still I was able to finish six books.


Gathering herbs and wild remedies – Getting started

Are you a tea drinker? If so what is your favorite kind? I love my earl grey in the morning followed by a cup of green tea. Later in the afternoon and the evening I switch to herb teas. And of course I always battle a cold with herbal tea. November 2019 I received a package from my godmother with her bags of homemade herbal tea. When I visited her a few weeks earlier we had been talking about gathering herbs and plants to make tea. While of course I knew about using mint leaves for tea and even had gathered thyme in the mountains during hikes inn my childhood, I never really thought about making my own blend. Spoiler: I have found new hobby in gathering herbs and wild remedies.

The calendar says we are in May 2021. We are still in the pandemic. And while here in Germany things are finally looking up a bit there are other parts of the world that are diving deeper in. Having another wave to battle. I am not sure I long I will keep going with this series. For today though I feel there is a bit of progress to report and so here it is the Corona dairies – month 14.
