First Day of the last Week of August 2022

Out of Uta’s Diary Writing:

Blessings: I am given another day, and I live on my own! πŸ™‚

I don’t know about tomorrow, but today I am going to love my life. I am going to enjoy doing all the things, that I can still do. I am not afraid of tomorrow either. If I have to go, I am ready to go any time! I don’t have to say ‘good bye’ to anybody, before I pass away. Not really. Everybody close to me is well aware, that it is possible for me to die very suddenly. I am sure, everybody can go on living quite well without me. It is only natural, that you do not hang onto an 88-year-old person.

In case I am given a few more days or weeks or months or even years, I should treat this extra time as something very special. Oh yes, I am aware, that for me every bit of extra time is something extremely special! πŸ™‚

Hopefully, I am happy just using most of this time for myself, only doing the things that I love doing. On average, there are only a few hours per month or week or during any day that some loved ones would want to or are able to spend with me. That leaves me plenty of time, just concentrating on myself and reflecting on those things that have been important to me throughout my life. Everything that I do, when I am on my own, gives me plenty of opportunity for reflection; for instance while I am doing things around the house, cooking beautiful healthy meals for myself, listening to music, walking in the park enjoying nature, and of course while I do some reading or writing! πŸ™‚

A few times a week I enjoy going out for lunch on my own. And when there is a chance to join somebody for lunch, that is even more enjoyable! πŸ™‚

Auntie, Sister. Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Mother and Wife of German Descent I've lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under

  1. I just did read this post one more time. So, I said, “I am happy just using most of this time for myself”. Actually, I also like to use some of the time staying in contact with people. Hopefully, that always leaves me plenty of time for these ‘selfish’ pursuits! πŸ™‚

  2. I just sent a Birthdaycard off to Berlin, Gernany. Astrid, my sister-in-law, turns 66 on the first of September! My brother, Peter-Uwe, turns 81 on the 28th of October. He is very happy, that his second wife is more than 15 years younger than he is. I have a very happy relationship with Astrid. I have frequent very good conversations with both Peter-Uwe and Astrid! πŸ™‚
    They do travel a lot. Maybe one day they’ll come for another visit to Australia. That would be great! πŸ™‚
    I saw both of them a lot when I was in Berlin in May this year. πŸ™‚
    Maybe, if I don’t deteriorate too much, I can travel to Berlin again one day! I could perhaps offer to pay the airfare for granddaughtger Natasha to accompany me! πŸ™‚

  3. I love reading your posts, Uta. How far we have both travelled since we discovered each other in the blogosphere. I too am enjoying these years of my life. Time to do what I want to do. Today has been a ME day. I have been sitting reading and talking to friends on the phone and on the internet. I did a little laundry because the rain stopped and the sun came out.
    I have always said I have led a blessed life. Having been loved by two men, a great childhood with loving parents and two sisters, two children and four grandsons who love me. I will leave this life with happy memories, but not I hope, not for a few more years.
    Blessings UTA

    1. Thank you, Judith! πŸ™‚

      It is great, that you feel the same as I do, that this stage of our lives is actually quite enjoyable! πŸ™‚

      Yes, it can still be quite enjoyable, and so I am grateful for this special bonus time. πŸ™‚

      However, I feel it is extremely difficult for me, to get used to the idea, that maybe never ever again is there going to be a very close friend of mine wanting to be my companion for some shared experiences! 😦

      I tell myself, since nobody’s life is going to change significantly, when I die, why not be happy when finally I can depart this world? – – – –

      Of course, this can all change, if against all odds, it turns out, that there is someone of the opposite sex willing to share a bit of time with me. πŸ™‚

      HUGS, Uta ❀

  4. Reblogged this on AuntyUta and commented:

    This Reblog I wrote a bit over a week ago. Today is the 1st of September. Here in Australia this counts as the first day of spring! Apart from my own birthday, four other family birthdays are coming up. Our family meeting in Sussex Inlet is going to be in October instead of in September. And then it won’t be long, and there are going to be a few Christmas celebrations! πŸ™‚
