My Wishes for 2008! Writing......

Januari 12

Did a lot of work (yes Valentine comes) for Hope you like it when you plann to visit.

I worked a lot the last few days on this homepage while I wanted to work at this homepage. We have weekend here so I hope to get a start to place Sheira's stories here. But I must also work (cabbdriver) in the night of saterday and sunday. So not much sleep for me here and that means I am not refreshed, only eh wuzzy...

I am satisfied with all my homepages now. They look wonderful. My friend Ronnie and I have now a relationship with the word LOVE on it. With Bestpal Ive got a lovely page. This makes me feel special. From Soulsisters no page. for the 3th following year. I who made a lot of pages when a lady needs help or has her birthday for Soulsisters and I do it gladly. But not much respond or sign guestbooks. Glad "my" Flutterbies does. But now I feel sad and wonder why I do such a trouble. Feeling sad with a lot of melancholy inside. Why do I bother when not much does. What do I do now?

Febr 12

What I did is:

Please check it out.

And I decided to leave Soulsisters... That was a hard decision cause this group has still wonderful members and I was there for years...

But now I feel wonderful and exited and ready to Butterfly!

Feb 28

It goes well on the GuestbookButterflies. I feel happy because of this. We slowly growing and its fun to do this. I just maded a lot of tags we can really use...

Waving goodbye to the Soulsisters now. Hope they will managed well without me.

Havent much too tell. 

A few weeks ago I was enjoying the winter with a smell of spring and I took this picture I like despite the blur of the snowdrops.

It was a wonderful walk in a part of a small forest.

March 20

Soon Spring is coming and already my garden shows the daffodils and more green and it feels like spring is coming but often we have rain, even a bit snow and a lot of grey sky here. Still its coming. I love it.

Reading now the moviebook from Beauty and the Beast. It had to be filmed but it was not... After so many years I guess it dont happend anymore... First I hate to see season 3 but now I admit that it shows also magic and Diana is a good woman too. She was played by Jo Andersson. A wonderful actress. Reading the moviescript that everything sets right is a wonderful thing to do. I love reading it.

March 24

Second Easterday

in the afternoon: we have now snow here.. It just started to snowing here. I know Easter is early this year but snowing now? We hardly had snow here in the winter.. Spring has begun.

Just redesigned The picture is maybe too big but I like it that way. 

Slowly started to write now. It isnt easy....

April 28

Lately I watch the dvd Xena a lot. It is great to see Xena again. Wonderful. 

Just working on my garden lately. Remove much, plant some new that hasnt started growing yet. Hopefully they will. Sowing seed... 

Dont have much to tell. Facing daily routine. 


May 16

Did you know the tv series from long ago? They were maded in another time and when I watched an old tvmagazine I remember them: Magnum PI, Fame, St Elsewhere, Hill Street Blues, Moonlight, Beauty and the Beast, Black Beauty, Charlies Angels, Danger Bay, Taxi, Mash, Dynasty, Dallas, Robin Hood...... 

Do you remember them? You dont hear from a lot of actresses and acteurs. I wonder what they are doing now? 

When you watch tv and see the old tvseries again and when you look the hits from now and you see you dont recoinized any artist then you know you are getting old..

June 5

Finally I write a bit on the story I have for a few years in my head. Only the names isnt easy to pick...

Hi I have so much space on this homepage avalable and am thinking what I can do with it. Right now it is all about words and my garden. Shall I choose something in that? Or shall I add something else? I dont know and have yet no ideas. What do you love to see?

A few days ago my boyfriend was driving on the highway and was hit by a truck and got smashed on another truck. His van is really cracked. The whole van!

My boyfriend saved his life because of his excellent driving. He came away with brushes and a burning place on his hand because of the airback. 

One moment you are fine and the next moment is a mess. It is now a few days ago but I feel still shaken inside. It shows how fragile life can be.

for you

A gift from the Butterflies. Please check it out!

July 25

Tropical weather outside. Flowers are blooming. Vacations has started. The summer of 2008 is here.

August 5

WorldWar 2 happend before I was born. I know the stories and the book of Miep Gies (one of the hides of Anne Frank) and ofcourse Anne Frank made a big inpression to me. From school (a long time ago) I learned a lot but in the years I forgot a lot. Last week I was in France for a short holiday (below the city Nancy) and saw on many places memorials of traggic deaths. I think I saw at least 10 and now I see on internet how many suffering, deaths and destroying went place in World War 2. Unbelievable. Whole Europe! I saw the destroyings places, the people on trains going to death.... 

Also in this area a lot of beautiful houses destroyed and many memories are to find. Still the scars of WorldWar 2 are easliy to find in Europe and Holland. 

Unbelievable. The Suffering.... Deaths....

Still cant believe it. And it makes me so ashame to be a human...

Is the computer a man or a woman?

language instructor was explaining to her class that French nouns, unlike their English counterparts, are grammatically designated as masculine or feminine.

Things like 'chalk' or 'pencil,' she described, would have a gender association although in English these words were neutral. Puzzled, one student raised his hand and asked, "What gender is a computer?"

The teacher wasn't certain which it was,and so divided the class into two groups and asked them to decide if a computer should be masculine or feminine. One group was comprised of the women in the class, and the other, of men. Both groups were asked to give four reasons for their recommendation.

The group of women concluded that computers should be referred to in masculine gender because: 1. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on. 2. They have a lot of data but are still clueless. 3. They are supposed to help you solve your problems, but half the time they ARE the problem. 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that, if you had waited a little longer, you could have had a better model.

The men, on the other hand, decided that computers should definitely be referred to in the feminine gender because: 1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic. 2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else. 3. Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval. 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories.


Finally Ive saw the movie mamma mia

And what a great movie! You know I am a ABBA fan but this was beyond ABBA. It was so cheerful, so great and wonderful. It brings you in a wonderful mood! I really love the movie. In december it comes out on dvd and bet I am the first that buy this!

What a great, great movie!

And what a wonderful story, songs and actresses and acteurs!

I love it!

I love Mamma Mia!


 Men are like Laxatives They irritate the crap out of you.

Men are like. Bananas  The older they get the less firm they are.

Men are like Weather  Nothing can be done to change them.

Men are like Blenders You need One but youre not quite sure why.

Men are like Chocolate Bars  Sweet and smooth they usually head right for your hips.

Men are like Commercials  You cant believe a word they say.

Men are like  Government Bonds They take sooooo long to mature.

Men are like  Mascara  usually run at the first sign of emotion.

Men are like Popcorn  They satisfy you but only for a little while.

Men are like Snowstorms  You never know when theyre coming how many inches youll get or how long it will last.

Men are like Lava Lamps . Fun to look at but not very bright.

Men are like Parking Spots All the good ones are taken the rest are handicapped.

October 7

Autumn has started and the last flowers are busy in the garden. We had a lot of rain and I am looking forward to see the golden sun meeting the red leaves. Suddenly I see Buffy my youngest cat taking a nap on a box with old paper and this makes me smile

October 14

Just worked on my design webpage: and now Ive got it cleaned up good. Couldnt believe how many not-used-anymore stuff I had but now I have again space avalable on that account so I can build up again. 

October 28

Autumn is here and I promise myself to take a long walk in my beloved forest but I still didnt do it yet.

Lately I have a headache. Dont feel that well, guess I am getting close to have the flu for a couple of weeks. Listening now to Rick Wright (album broken china) He was one of the Pink Floyd members and in 1994 I saw them playing in Holland. He died of cancer, only 65 years old... I am getting older also. Thinking I grow wiser but just getting old...

You are most like Galadriel. There's just something about you that people like. A sort of aura. You're very kind to people, and you like to help others succeed. You're not as candid as most people would like. You don't have to share your deepest darkest secrets, but be more honest about things! You're more mature than most people your age, so don't worry!
What LoTR Character Are You?

November 20

Finally, finally I walked in the forest today. I was home.

Excerpt from Journal....

Memories of my life has been  
Written upon pages of books,
and the odd sheets of paper that
I've scattered about  
To gather dust through the years. 
Thoughts that have great meaning  
To me; history that I share with humanity...
all that I was and why; 
perhaps, all that I've become 'til now.  
Deeds in words come from my soul, 
With heartfelt expressions of my creativity...
I share a moment of laughter...tear stains   
This portrait, I've painted unto an open diary.

December 19

Properly the last message I write here. I have the diary of 2009 ready. I choose a sweet theme.

This year will end with a crisis of money. it hits (almost) everywhere on this planet. I am one of them. Life gets expensive and I hate it when a lot of money goes to bills. For months I hope to buy some nice clothes but so far mm not much. Only more and more bills. This worry about money gives me often a headache. I cant find the ends meet anymore.

Wish I could have enough money. Wish I could buy a farm and place it with shelteranimals.. wish I could give some money away, wish...

And here in Holland they say it gets much worse in 2009. And already a lot of people lost their jobs here....

As always I shall as often as I can listen to the top 2000 that plays from Christmas till 2009 on the radio. Nonstop!

Christmas 2008

After a nightshift I feel tired and suffer from lack of sleep.

I have a few more nightshifts this year and on Januari 1 working again. Between this all a few days free and I start soon on a new look for Flowergarden. Wishing you a lot of love and sparkles these Christmas.


December 31

This marks the last message of this year in this wonderful diary.

Wishing you a great and sparkling 2009. Happy New Year!

Hugs Regina



“I have often been downcast, but never in despair; I regard our hiding as a dangerous adventure, romantic and interesting at the same time. In my diary I treat all the privations as amusing. I have made up my mind now to lead a different life from other girls and, later on, different from ordinary housewives. My start has been so very full of interest, and that is the sole reason why I have to laugh at the humorous side of the most dangerous moments.”

Anne Frank
