Stories: Het lelijke eendje (4)


Hij zag dat hij geen gans was. 
Opeens landen de witte vogels vlakbij op het water.
 Dapper zwom het eendje op hen af. “hallo, wie zijn jullie? 
“wat heb ik nou aan mijn fiets hangen?” sprak de grootste vogel. 
Zijn stem klonk alsof er een bloemkool klem zat in zijn keel. 
“Vlieg op jij” zei de tweede, nasaal alsof er een wasknijper op haar neus stond.
 “Hoeveel euro ben je waard?

 

Het eendje voelde dat het niet in de haak was en vloog weg. 
Na lang vliegen herkende hij het plein. 
Sierlijk landde hij vlak voor het nest met de walnootdop, de pincet en de afwasborstel, 
hij  rende naar zijn moeder, zijn broertjes en zusjes. 
“Ik had heimwee, ik miste jullie.” 
Moeder eend was verbaasd en zei uit de grond van haar hart “Slijmbal” voor ze hem een knuffel gaf.

You'll see these five this summer!
You'll see these five this summer! the ant, the fly, the fruit fly, the mosquito, the wasp Hello, Summer. - This summer it is warm like these days, so tropical! The #insecten coming with whole armies at us. First we got a horde of ants at the barn door. Hundreds of ants. They plowed so much sand, it looked like molehills. Then the fly. I live in the countryside between the lands, so yes, there are always flies. But since a few days with this heat a lot of fat shit-flies. I always get them out of the house as soon as one comes in, because they poop everything down. Then the fruit fly! Whaaaa, I find that one of the most annoying there is. Do you know that if you eat a sandwich or have a drink, that it floats in front of your face every time and wants to land in your drink or on your sandwich? They're so small, but lightning fast. They seem to poop even though they are small too! And they are present in great numbers at the moment. The fruit has been moved to the fridge and part is outside. Then the mosquito! Oh, I'm all covered by mosquito bumps. Normally, I almost never get stabbed, but this week I spent a night outside and a candle against the mosquitoes on the table, but they thought I was so nice or dirty, that my arms, legs and cheeks had to believe it. That itch, blood irritant. I had vinegar, and I rubbed it on the spots with a cotton ball. Now I certainly don't smell good anymore, but hey it helps and oh yes, you can never scratch, because then there seems to be a speck of dust that makes it more itchy, said Leco at RTL Boulevard. Not that I'm watching that program, but I zapped and Leco just said something about the mosquito! And then the wasp. Brbrbrbrbrbr I'm afraid of that. Say panic! Sit as still as possible and stay calm, but I can't! As soon as I see one, I'm gonna scream and run. You don't want to see or hear that hahahaha. It's to be ashamed of your death. On holidays also whole campsites shouted together. To the inheritance of hubby who then really decides “I'm not part of this.” I've been stabbed three times in my life. The first time on my eyelid, that was really very painful and annoying. The second time it was in my nightgown and I was stabbed on my back and the third time during a walk on my middle finger. You understand, I'm a bit of a drama queen, but without joking, on the one hand they are useful insects and on the other hand a serious problem if you are allergic or if you get such a thing in your mouth. Brbrbr shouldn't think about it. I am always happy when autumn starts again, although sometimes one wants to stay wintering, but by autumn everything is quiet again, well quiet, then Mrs. spider with hubby and kids often emerges again, but I don't find that scary. They run fast, but they don't sting, stabbing, or bite. tips against ants - Tip: How to get ants away - An ant plague - Ants, very useful animals but keep them outdoors - ants facts - Why are the flying ants flying? - How a crazy ant teaches you to make a difference - What's a hedgehog ant? - We have (finally) ANTS!!!! - Flying ants in the air - Word of the day - Turnhole - What do red forest ants eat? - Lice on plants: what an ant - Did you know that?

The survival of every day - tip 3 - Embrace the journey, not the destination
Embrace the journey and not the destination. Not the result, but the process. Last week my daughter participated in a sponsorship run for the Food Bank. People could sponsor a fixed amount or per round. The latter option can of course immensely motivate, but can also emphasize the (to be delivered) performance. Especially if you're not a runner by nature.. Fortunately, my daughter had a lot of fun in the 'trip' and especially the destination; together with many others raised a lot of money for the Food Bank. Fortunately, that was more important than the individual number of rounds or yield per person. 'Embrace the journey, not the destination' - This quote comes from Bear Grills, but countless other people use it in the same way, for example: 'The journey is as important as the destination.' Bear Grills tells the story that people always ask after a mountain climb: “Did you make it to the top?” For Grills and his buddy Mick, it wasn't about the top itself, but about the trip. Mick has en. tremendously lucky because he survived the journey. After a fall, he miraculously landed on a ledge and could be saved by two other climbers. Mick was a different person after that. Humble and grateful that he was alive. The fact that he failed - and thus did not reach the summit - proved to be a blessing for him, because for him life has become a gift. Whether I agree 100% with the tip in the end I do not know. I myself see it as an art to find a good balance between hard work, dreaming and pursuing goals on the one hand, and resting and enjoying the beautiful things in life on the other. If you enjoy your life's journey, you'll also get to your destination. And in a way that is far more satisfying than all that rushing and focusing. And the latter is perhaps even more the challenge than setting goals and pursuing your dream. So still embrace the journey, enjoy life, be grateful for what you already have. #survival   #rice The tips come from survival expert Bear Grills; the world's best-known survival expert, complemented by my own experiences.
