All about ME…


I’ve had a wonderful time with my sister staying here, lazying under the spanish sun, that is still shining brightly here, no sign of autumn yet… other than the flocks of geese that fly over head on their journey to the warmer shores of Africa…  We visited our favourite restaurants, took short nature walks, collected crystal rocks for my ‘work in progress’ Earth Mandela and gave Angie some beginners tips playing golf… and she did very well…

Talking about golf… and the fact that it sometimes pays to be consistent… I recently won the Mazarron Country Club Ladies Golf Championship for the second year running…  Horray…Horray… Unfortunately I do have to mention that in order to win the ‘Owners Cup’ you have to be an owner of MCC… and there were only 2 of us… and 2 lady guests… But rules are rules and I won with my handicap by 1 stapleford point…  A reason to play more before next year and recruit more lady golfers…


This weekend has been quite challenging in one way… I’ve felt an urgent need all weekend to make concrete decisions… Something to do with the Full Moon that also kept both Tom and myself sleeping and dreaming for most of the weekend…

One Dream I had was about all my WordPress Friends… we were all together in person meeting each other as if we had been friends for life… but this is for another post as I still have to untangle a deep wound that obviously wants to come up, be acknowledged, accepted and released…. (it seems IAM never done… shadows, aspects of myself continue to come home… preparing to graduate and take part in the best show that will be showing soon in town…)

So… decision time… and YES… Tom and I have made our big decision to rent out our spanish home in order to travel further down the coast and explore anew… from next summer… So I have set the wheels of preparation in motion and created a beautiful advertisement to entice people to come to our villa and enjoy a relaxing vacation with their family and friends…

Could I be so bold as to ask YOU my friends to pass around the link to your friends and family…

Thank you…

To close this bizarre full moon weekend off we rose early this morning and went for our morning walk around the park under the misty moon… It remains an enchanting environment here… I took a picture of last nights sunset too…



Until the next time… Barbara Franken

Now this is what I call LIVING!
Appreciating and loving…You gals look wonderful Barbara. You sum it all well and I wish I was there soaking up the beauty and joy of family with you. It’s a blessing when sisters get along, you will never fully appreciate the joy of family until later in life(personally speaking) I’ve always been close to my sisters, all 5 of them. Lately in our mid forties, the 3 oldest of us are having the best times of our lives. We suddenly realized how much calmer and beautiful life really is, now that we have made a conscious effort to slow down and savor every day and time given.

Hi Dotta… Isn’t is great to be close and go back down memory lane together… thankfully much more calm and wise… (there was a time that I took out my frustrations on my little sister… thankfully i didn’t hurt her….) Cheers Barbara

hahaha…we all did (do) at one time or the other, even the little ones had their own frustrations. Thankfully, grace abides 🙂
Have a great day dear.

Oh, my! My husband and I were just watching House Hunter’s International last night (one of my favs) and they were renting a house on a beautiful hillside in Spain. If we suddenly come into some money today, I will consider it a sign! I will even learn to play golf. Looks lovely…..

Congrats for being a winner

It was indeed a great celebration… winners and losers… Thankyou.. IAM always very aware though that a winner makes someone a loser… and for this reason it is the only tournament I participate in… Tom and I actually created it to encourage the owners here to mingle more… and that was a great success…

October 22, 2013 at 12:59

Oo beautiful house and loved the picture of the sunset!
Your sister and you are very lovely as well 🙂
Congrats on winning the golf as well!

Goodness! So much to comment on, you beautiful ladies, your Golf win (wow), your beautiful home, the move. You have a lot going on and this post showed it. Good luck with all this and congrats on these milestones.

Thanks Beth… you said it and that is probably why I feel a little sad… or has it something to do with the mercury retrograde that has just started… Barbara

{{{Barbara}}} your so lovely. I have had ideas of a WP liaison but yall will have to do one in Europe and we will do one in US. 😀 Or I will come to Europe. 😀 Congrats on the golf.

Hey I am so discombobulated, did I get your email and your sun sign for your reading? I have you, Lisa, and Debra remaining.

Wonderful idea, but similar to USA, Europe is so outstretched… we all know how to expand into each others lives though… we could all have a celebration one time with this in mind… and write about the experience… IAM not good at big words…. but you probably mean very busy etc…. I sent you my email address but I don’t know my sun sign… I was born 22 January 1962 if that’s any help… IAM a true aquarium.. FREEDOM is my heart and soul desire… take care and keep balanced and make time for relaxation to recharge… Barbara

It’s true you learn something each day… I’ve never really been into astrology… I put it on one of your posts… not sure which…. but it’s take care, barbara… It must be time for your sleep…
