We need our nature back

Image
It was never so bad as this year (yes, 2019). My neighbors began cutting down trees and hedges all over the area. Since 4 years ago, since I live here I saw yet another tree gone, yet another hedge replaced with wood fences. I mean what's the idea behind it? Why cutting trees to create wood fences? Just because they don't want to sweep the fallen leaves once a year probably?

The areas where I live and work have become empty without those magestic trees and bushes.

Unfortunatelly I am not allowed to show you much of my area, because it's private area... you know...

Of course people actually complained about the fact that they should leave nature alone. Many of those comments don't even have anything to do with the article. Insert German lesson of the day: meckern (complaining).
Honestly I am prepared not to hear any more electric saw in summer.
Have a nice day and let me know if you think this regulation should be aplied wherever you are. ๐Ÿ˜‡

Welcome to my humble second EFIT! ๐Ÿ˜Š

7:30
I like to up do my sleep braid in winter. It's easy to braid your hair for sleep at night and wrap it in a bun in the morning; a job in a matter of seconds, really. Helpful when you are still sleepy to fuss on your hair in the morning.





8:30
This was the second snow though. But it lasted for few hours this time.

09:30
It was really cold though, I am glad I have good winter clothes. It was definitely -1C but then I couldn't make these photos without snow and cold.

10:30


It wasn't much snow on the streets, maybe just 1 cm thick; there will never be such thick snow as in Bavaria (at least I hope so) ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ณ

11:30
I played with zoom like crazy.



12:30
I was going back home when I saw birds on a tree nearby. I tested my camera for the first time with these models... er... birds. ๐Ÿ˜ผ

13:30: I edited my photos not in photoshop, but gimp.
I like minimalismus. Sometimes it looks good, some other times not. I am an absolute beginner in photo editing …

It's 23.01, so it's time for something called EFIT




06:45
G๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ณdmorning everyone!
Or moin, or hi from North-West Germany!
Usually when I wake up it's still dark.
07:45
When I go outside it's still foggy and chill.


9:45
Coffee time

10:45
Right after a short break. I usually drink tea or read a magazine, but when I am in the mood I happen to take some photos.


14:45
On the way  home: I usually like to take some nature photos.

15:45
I also like to spend some time editing my photos.
16:45
Sometimes I receive a copy of Der Hausarzt Magazin, where I publish my photographs.


17:45
After I edit some photos I usually upload them on Facebook groups or photo contest websites
18:45
I happened to get cold so I did an experiment with tea and a lot of vitamins... and of course with photography. I also received a lot of likes for this photo; I am glad people begin to like my work.
And no, I didn't forget about proteins and medicine ☺️

Shaking off the cold

Image
I feel better after drinking a lot of tea, eating hot soups and fruit. I still have a rough voice especially if I speak loud and for some long(er) time.
I'm experimenting with vitamins and tea... and of course, photography ๐Ÿ˜.
This thing... Is not kompostas the fruit are fresh (as oposed to cooked).A friend told me it's still a tea but some kind of... well something different and interesting. Ok I cold my experiment raw tea; or roar/ tea as the pronunciation is quite the same (english is not my native language, so feel free to laugh at me joke) ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Ingredients:
pears (speaking of which, the last time I ate pears I was probably in my teens) (?)grapestea baghot water
Enjoy it while you edit the photos and upload them on  different photo-challenge-websites...

Random tea receipt

I got cold. Thank you climate change ๐Ÿ˜“
As I was once cold 4 1/2 years ago (since I live in Germany) and I could shake off the cold with some tea and lemon, I tried it today too.
Only one exception: marmalade added... well what's left of it, of course.
Note: you can do the same thing using honey instead of marmalade ๐Ÿ˜‹ Yummy!
Pour hot water; lukewarm water will get cold faster because the marmalade jar is bigger than a regular cup of tea.
At this point I had to add water first, then photograph. I had a cinematic idea รก la Peter MCKinnon, but my lens got covered with steam from the hot water.
Peter, how HOW do you do all your amazing stuff?! ๐Ÿ˜
Lemon is optional, but it works miracles.
I also decided to (re)use the jar lid. Too much of throw-away in this world...
Plus, this method may keep your tea hot/warm for longer.
If you decide you don't want to keep a marmalade jar in your house, at least, please recycle it correctly.
 If you are healthy, stay healthy; if you are cold, get…

One photo per hour

I found this scrolling through Jonna Jinton's blog post from 2011(!). Her blog is amazing! I was curious about her life in a small village so I read every blog post she wrote.
As I try to become a better photographer and try to promote my hobby as much as I can, EFIT seems like a good challenge. No, I am not talking about photographing private life or selfies every minute, but a better structure of my blog and a chance to use my photo camera even more; and of course, reaching out to as many readers as possible. ☺EFIT has also blog schedules, so there's no danger of spamming.
I think I can make it. Looking forward to it.
Now I should get some sleep.
Good night!


Rant about Facebook

Hello my readers,
(Wow! I didn't expect to have some reads on my newly started blog. I don't even know where my blog will end or what and when I will write next ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜€)
good to see you in 2019!
And now my rant about Facebook: I tried to share my husband's post on different music groups and guess what...
My post got banned by Facebook for whatever reason I couldn't understand. I also couldn't undo this "mistake" as faceFace's report options have become a chore.
In other words, I try to do as much as I can with the power and knowledge I have. It's not much I guess but it's better than nothing.
Technology is becoming increasingly difficult. It makes me even angrier as I studied technology in highschool. I should deal with this stuff, right?
Yeah. No. I feel older and older day by day trying to deal with things that make me feel guilty for not knowing how to cope with them.
How do you cope with such feelings?
