WW: Mother Shipton's Cave in in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, England

Image
This is quite a scary wordless Wednesday! wink! just kidding guys! I hope you are all doing great out there! I got here a photo near the sign of Mother Shipton's Cave and the Petrifying Well. This cave is found in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, England and is known to be the oldest attraction of England since 1630. Isn't it amazing when you visit place like this! I am happy to visit this place but sad to say I don't have the chance to go inside the cave because the train where I will be riding back to Birmingham is leaving soon. here is a little info about this place.

Mother Shipton's Cave (or "Old Mother Shipton's Cave") is at Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, England, near to the River Nidd. Nearby is a petrifying well which has been a tourist attraction since 1630 due to its association with the legendary soothsayer and prophetess Mother Shipton (c. 1488 - 1561), born Ursula Southeil, wife of Toby Shipton. According to legend she was born in the…

SS: Burglengenfeld in Bavaria Germany

We happened to passed-by this city of Burglengenfeld last month. We also drove to this place last Saturday because I was rushed to the hospital due to severe migraine.

TF: Dicentra Flowers

Image
I finally found the name of these lovely pink flowers. This is called Dicentra spectabilis..more info below from wikipedia...sorry for being late for my TF posting..

Dicentra spectabilis also known as Venus's car, bleeding heart, Dutchman's trousers, or lyre flower, is a perennial herbaceous plant native to eastern Asia from Siberia south to Japan. This species of bleeding heart can grow to 24"-36" tall and has ternately compound leaves (leaflets that come in threes). The flowers are pendulous, shaped much like hearts, produced in a raceme bearing 3-15 individual flowers, each one 1-2" long, with pink outer petals and white inner petals. The flowering season is from early spring to mid summer. The common name of this plant, bleeding heart, comes from the heart-shaped flowers which have a longer inner petal that extends below the 'heart'.

Suffering in Silence....Again!

I thought the sun will shine good today. It seems that the rain starts to pour again outside. I'll just give you a short update of what had happened last Saturday. As I woke-up in the morning I already felt pain in the left part of my head. My eyes just want to remain close because it seems that when I see light, the pain in my head is also getting stronger. I still manage to drink my tea and eat two cookies for breakfast. After that, I went back to bed. Around lunch time, I felt very hungry already and decided to cook canned foods. That is the easiest food that I can cook. If possible I don't want to eat anymore to lose some weight. I wish to find the best weight loss supplements but still not sure what is really the best. Anyway, after I ate lunch I went back to bed again. Around in the afternoon, I was pretending that I felt better. I even go with my husband shopping in Parsberg and Burglengenfeld. On our way to Burglengenfeld, I told my husband to stop …

Scenic Sunday #1- Paris, France

Image
Before I sign-off for tonight, let me share first my first entry in Scenic Sunday! I guess this is a very beautiful scene taken outside Louvre Museum in Paris, France during our trip last March of this year. From afar, you can see the replica of the Arc of Triumph. That's me facing with the red and white jacket facing to that replica..

Today's Flowers- Roses in Our Garden

Image
These are just some roses in our garden. The one I got here is not growing good. I just discovered that there are a lot of ants under the ground surrounding this rose plant. I hope I can take away those ants next time. This rose has three flowers with different colors. The other one is fading and dying, the other just reach its maturity and the other one has fresh red color....such a beauty of nature!

Escapades With Friends

Image
It was raining dogs and cats yesterday but I still need to go out and have fun with friends. I have no choice but to drive to the Motorway despite the strong rain. Thanks God that I arrived safely in Neumarkt. Another friend was waiting for me there because we have to drive again to another friend in Moening. I also have to see this other friend to give some important papers. These are invitations for my sister and brother whom I want to visit us here in Germany in the next coming months.

After taking our lunch, we proceeded to Berle in Berching to go swimming. We had a lot of fun there especially in the jacuzzi. We only stayed around three hours in Berle because Maria's Mother-in-law prepared a small despedida or goodbye party for Maria's sister who had a flight this afternoon back to the Philippines. That was a great afternoon seeing good friends again. I am sharing some photos from yesterday's escapade with friends.

I also wish everyone a happy and won…

Weekend Escapades!

Image
We had a great time last Saturday weekend. We went to Landshut to see the famous festival called Landshuter Hochzeit. We toured around the old city and I was amazed by the beauty of the place. That was a lot of walking too. Since we parked our car some kilometers from the city, we have to walk going to the old city. Would you think I need ephedra products if I go walking and have exercise everyday?

Last Sunday, we also went walking in our place. I got here a nice photo of the walking way where we always go for some walk. It was a great sunny day and we truly enjoyed the scenery of the nature around! below is also a picture taken in Landshut. feel free to visit my other sites or more photos and updates!

Our Paper Container was Forgotten

Good evening everyone! I hope you had a great day today. It is almost ending in Europe and I am still here to give you some updates. I was waken-up by a familiar sound of a vehicle this morning. Yesterday our trash was picked-up. Normally today is also the collection of paper and cartoon container. As I heard the loud sound of the truck that collects paper and cartoons, I immediately woke-up and check our paper container in the garage. My husband forgot to put it outside for collection. Well, can't do anything now the truck is away. Next month again. I better search for best diet pills before I sign-off for tonight. I wish everyone a very pleasant evening! take care guys!
