{Our Yoga Frogs & Friday's MH17 Flight...}

For his birthday a couple of months ago, my husband Pieter got this trio of very cute YOGA FROGS that now reside on our patio!
Don't you just LOVE these guys?
They are about the true size of a bullfrog.
Just rescued one this week, our cats had brought him inside the staircase area...
They go well with our pots on the patio...
Wishing you a lovely and relaxed Saturday evening Sunday!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17.
My VandenMunckhof family from Australia did return safely to Kuala Lumpur on the very same MH17 flight; next day from Amsterdam. This flight will be retired next week... Guess my Uncle & Aunt with cousins (8 together) will have arrived by now at their home in Adelaide.
You can see here my 1st cousin Elizabeth being interviewd in Kuala Lumpur by ninemsn news Australia... my aunt to the right.

  1. Dearest Mariette ... loving these Yoga frogs!!! and they look fabulous among your pots. Wow I'm so happy that your family is OK ... this is a terrible thing that is happening with the airlines. Life is so precious and it is hard to believe that people exist to destroy life. My thoughts and prayers are with all the families and people affected by this horrible event. Wishing you a blessed week-end my friend.. hugs and blessings, Celia M. (HHL)

    1. Dearest Celia,
      We both fell in love with these gifted yoga frogs and can see why our friend chose them!
      Oh yes, what a relief to hear my family from Australia are all safe; it must have been quite an emotional flight for them the day after such tragedy, using the very same flight.
      We certainly need to keep all next of kin in our prayers.
      May your weekend be peaceful and blessed as well.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

      Oh sure they must have boarded with lots of emotions... But they did arrive safe and that's what counts. So sad for so many that never reached their destination!
      No I cannot do yoga like those frogs; they beat me big time! But that's what frogs do, they are very flexible.
      Hugs,

  6. Hi Mariette, those yoga frogs are so cute! They look very relaxed and happy :-)
    I had no idea your family took the same flight next day. So glad they are safe. This is such a terrible tragedy that happened to the victims. Prayers to them for the peaceful rest of their souls.

  7. Dearest Mariette....What charming frogs. How funny that one of your cats tried to take one. She must really like frogs in any way, shape or form.
    I am so very glad that your family is safe at home. The face of terror is a terrible thing and so wasteful and disheartening.
    At various times I have been the only member of our family living in the states. There were too many close calls to think about, but all did make it.
    Enjoy the day.........*s*

      These guys are charming. But our cat did take a bullfrog that was alive! They don't bother these ones.
      Yes, it is a happy fact to know that our family is safe back home.
      Like you say, too many close calls to think about but yours made it. So sad for these pour victims of such coward act of terror.

  11. Dear Mariette,
    How cute are Pieter's yoga frogs! They give you a little smile when you walk by, I'm sure!
    I have been praying for the families who have lost their loved ones in the terrible airline crashes. Such a tragedy for so many and for the Dutch and Malaysian peoples, especially. You must be so grateful that your cousin and family are safely landed.
    Wishing you a lovely weekend. xo Karen

    1. Dearest Karen,
      Oh we even can see those yoga frogs from the breakfast table! They make one smile, so cute.
      We only can pray because there are no words and also about the despicable treatment of the deceased.
      The Netherlands sure is the hardest hit with its 193 victims; Malaysia 43; Australia 28 citizens but a total of 36 who called Australia home; 12 from Indonesia etc. etc. Interesting to read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia_Airlines_Flight_17
      Hope you have a peaceful Sunday evening!

    1. Dearest Michiko,
      Thank you and yes, sure you are a lot more worried than normal with your son Andrew's family still not home. It certainly made people scared for flying and what can we do about it? Such coward tactics is something we cannot protect against. May the world know peace again and calm.
      Hugs and love to you dear!

  13. Dearest Mariette; Oh My!!! What a relief that your family is safe, dear friend. When I heard that the flight flew from the Netherlands, I thought about you. And NO IDEA about about about your family used the airline! Whew, what a tragedy happened!
    The bullfrog is really CUTE with the lovely face and posture♡♡♡

    I hope you all are having a wonderful coming new week.
    Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

      Those yoga frogs are really cute, far cuter than the live bullfrog that I rescued...
      Sure it is a blessing that my family made it safe back to Australia but so many families are grieving in my birth country... There are no words and especially the disrespectful way the bodies are handled with and not being released to their loved ones.
      Hugs and love to you and so far I have not seen your mail...

  14. Grappig drietal op het terras,kikkers doen ook al aan yoga zie ik;-)

    Ja, de pers zit er bovenop,zag enige uren na het trieste nieuws dat mensen aanwezig op de luchthaven Schiphol voor de avondvlucht naar Kuala Lumpur de microfoon onder de neus geduwd kregen met de vraag of ze niet angstig waren of ze wel durfde gaan en nog wat van dit soort retorische vragen.
    Het leven gaat door, dag in dag uit,ook na aangrijpende en schokkende gebeurtenissen die het wereldnieuws halen.
    Inmiddels zijn er wereldwijd al weer veel vliegtuigen door het luchtruim gevlogen en al die passagiers hebben hun bestemming bereikt waaronder jou familie,gelukkig.

    Fijne dag en lieve groet,
    Ger

    1. Lieve Ger,
      Ja, deze yoga kikkers zijn erg grappig; leuk gevonden!
      Toch is het mooi dat de pers geen toegang tot de rouwbijeenkomst krijgt en ook niet de nabestaanden buiten het gebouw mag filmen. Het is onbeschrijflijk en zo erg ook dat de lijken niet worden vrijgegeven...
      Toch denk ik dat de maatschappijen voortaan uitwijken en niet meer boven de Oekraïne. Wij weken destijds ook uit en route naar Indonesië via Rusland om zo de Gulf War te ontwijken in de 90er jaren. Laten we hopen dat de terreur niet de overhand gaat krijgen in de wereld.
      Liefs,

    1. Dearest Claudia,
      In about half an hour the Dutch King will speak about the tragedy in East Ukraine, right after the closed gathering of the loved ones of victims, in Niewegein. It is respectful that no media is allowed and even outside the buidling, making photographs is prohibited. At least some respect and dignity for the loved ones as there is absolutely no respect for the dead bodies in Ukraine... So sad!
      Yes we are happy that our family arrived safely back in Australia!
      Wishing you a happy week as well.

  19. Liebe Mariette,
    es ist so schrecklich von dieser Tragödie zu hören - das Leben so vieler Menschen wurde ausgelöscht -
    da bist du sicher froh, dass deine Verwandten gesund angekommen sind -

    da bleibt uns nichts, als für ihre Seelen zu beten -

    würden doch alle Menschen so ausgeglichen sein, wie die niedlichen Frösche -

    ich wünsche dir eine gesunde und schöne Zeit -
