Not wordless at all but rather warm…

Hello, dear people of the blogosphere. How are you doing? I hope life is treating you well and if not that you have someone to cuddle, a big bar of chocolate or a blog to let it all out. And if all else fails know, that I am thinking of you and send you good vibes!

Are you as warm as I am? Even though it is not as hot here at the North Sea Coast as it is in other parts of the country it is still testing my ability to cope.

The weather app on my phone tells me that we currently have 31c/87.8f which we had a lot last year too. But it was a dry heat then. I can live with that. But this morning we had some thunderstorms which makes it rather humid around here. Not that I complain. Well, I do but I also see some light at the end of the tunnel: At least I did not have to water the plants today.

Because of that, I am hiding behind the curtains of our lovely home with all windows open. Makes no difference believe you me, however, I still hope that whatever light breeze might come our way honours us with a visit LOL.

Had trouble to get into gear this morning. The dog only got a short walk, then I had to bake bread and collapsed on the sofa after that. Allowed myself a little time to play FarmvilleCountry Escape (I consider that self-care the best husband (Jeremy Clarkson voice ) in the world considers it addiction… it’s all a question of interpretation, I guess πŸ˜‰ ) with two mugs of coffee. That triggered a “I can do it” response. So I started the laptop.

TherapyBits got another of my daily poems to read πŸ™‚ and I had a look at my Weebly page too. Unfortunately, I wasn’t particularly organised when I had to give up my beehalton.com domain. This blog was first supposed to just host some pictures for downloading for my “Love Is In Da Blog” series on the old “The Bee Writes…” blog. That is why “downloads” ended up in the link name here which of course sounds a little like a spam page. Ooops. I am saving up to get another domain (well I try to….) but until then I have to put up with it.

Doesn’t look good on profiles though, does it? So I went back to my Weebly page where I try to bring together all the projects I am currently doing.

That’s the page that goes on my profiles from now on. What do you think?

As you can see I have a blog there which I stopped writing in March but have resurrected today with an added bonus: It’s not only about self-care but also about coding. I feel a little lonely in my endeavours and while coding forums are fun I love to blog, so I am sharing my experiences there. Unfortunately, you can’t sign up for post notifications for Weebly. That’s not userfriendly, is it? And the RSS had its problems. Not sure it works now. Hmmm, will have to check that out tomorrow.

It means though, making people aware what I wrote is a little bit more complicated. I’ll figure something I am sure. If you want to check out my teeny weeny post from today over there please have a look here.

It’s now just after 3pm and I need to cook. Won’t be much because who is hunger in this kind of weather? But we do love our tatters (potatoes for all non-Lord-of-the-Rings Fans πŸ˜‰ ) so potatoes it is and some herb yoghurt and salad. That sounds like a plan, doesn’t it?

What about you? What occupied you today and do you have to deal with lots of heat too?

To cool you down a little here is a blast from the past from March 2015:

July 2019

I promised an autumn poem and must have forgotten. This is certainly another spring poem πŸ™‚

What’s the Plan Bee?

So, I am out of the rat race.

The Supermarket is just a bad dream and a past paradise of being able to pay the bills.

Plan A didn’t work out. Teaching English with a German accent isn’t the new hip even though I’ve been told my accent isn’t that bad actually. Never mind.

The rising polarisation of this world and our societies is a heavy burden on my soul. But maybe that is exactly how it should be.

I remembered my roots. Writing poetry against the darkness. And I remembered my name: Beatrice ~ She who makes happy!

That’s always seemed to have been my mission. I felt though it was no good. How can you make a living with that? Stop being a dreamer!

But 6 months out of my job and four months of shared self-care I have come to believe that that is exactly what I am supposed to do: making happy, supporting, encouraging, motivating and empowering.

So plan bee is a homepage to give my poetry, my mugs, my photo’s and my blog a home as well as inviting you to stay in contact via social media. It’s all work in progress. And I try the impossible: Creating a community and selling something without the mighty Facebook. I left in 2015 and never looked back.

I also try the impossible with me settling down for one page, one blog but several streams of income. My blog vagabonding times are over.

And believing in myself and my products. Pondering my life and my creativity I have come to the conclusion that this is my biggest challenge and my biggest roadblock to overcome.

But I can do it! Yes, I can!
