Our Happy Wall

Our Happy Wall

I always look forward to our little chat in the newsletter. How are you doing? I hope this week treated you well.

Writing to you reminds me of shopping in a small town where everybody knows each other. "Shopping" means talking to friends, really showing interest in them and listening while they share their thoughts and opinions that are important to them.

You catch up on the family news and as the conversation comes to an end, you remember what you actually came to the store for. lol

This week Sybrand and I looked at some of our photos on our "happy wall". We have 9 photos of happy moments on a wall in the lounge and sometimes when we feel a bit "quiet",  just reliving those happy moments lift the spirits and I can't help to smile  thinking of the happiness in the moments in those photos.

I hope that you have some happy moments to lift your spirits when needed. Let me 
know what you do when you feel a bit "quiet".

Well, now its time for me to get to the "work" part of the newsletter so chat to you soon again.

Happy Stitching!

Do men and woman see the same colors?

Some time ago Sybrand and I decided on new curtains for 2 rooms in our house. He could choose the colors for the study and I could choose the colors for the master bedroom. I was very happy to choose a rustic brown color and Sybrand choose "light blue". I suggested "sapphire blue" but he stuck to "light blue". (I am sure it was sapphire blue though). In the end we were very happy with each others color choices and there was no (further) argument. lol

However that got me thinking about the different way men and woman see colors. It seems that I am definitely not the only one with this question - Do men and woman see the same colors?

Emotional Support Animals vs Service Animals
Emotional Support Animals vs Service Animals

October 02, 2018 1 Comment

When we talk about "mans best friend" we all agree we refer to a domestic dog. Dogs have been extensively trained as service animals to perform tasks as guide dogs, herding dogs, search and rescue dogs, tracking and hunting dogs etc. And do not forget your "best friend" at home. Which brings me to the topic of Emotional Support Animals. 

An emotional support animal is a dog, or cat, or other pet that helps alleviate symptoms of an emotional or mental disability through companionship and affection. The animal doesn’t need specific working abilities to become an emotional support animal.
