Of course, we have to talk about eggs

Did you all have an awesome Easter holiday, friends? My very best wishes! It was really lovely for us. It was my first Easter in Germany actually, but more on that next time. I have an important job today: I want to be the Easter Bunny, albeit a tad late, and deliver great news toContinue reading “Of course, we have to talk about eggs”

We have green sea turtles for Sean!

Some exciting news: Sean’s nest adopted for his grandson Leo surprised us by revealing themselves as the endangered green sea turtles. This is the first time we saw these babies at the hatchery. Aren’t they the cutest thing ever? We got the news and photos this morning and I could not wait to share itContinue reading “We have green sea turtles for Sean!”

Look, our hatchery is on national media!

We bring about what we think about, says the law of attraction.

I want to relax but plastic gives me anxiety

I watch a couple of cafe vlogs on YouTube for relaxation. One is focused on making hot and cold coffee drinks while the other features gorgeous bread and sandwiches. The preparation of all these nice food entertain me – the sounds, colors, ingredients, and attention to detail are inspiring – but there is one aspectContinue reading “I want to relax but plastic gives me anxiety”

Last sunset for our turtle friends

Did you know that turtles lift each other up? In a nest, the strongest hatchlings are on the bottom. With their eyes still closed, with no idea what sunshine is, they will push their brothers and sisters above so they can break through the sand and start their journey in life. They will then makeContinue reading “Last sunset for our turtle friends”

The turtles are unstoppable

It has been an incredibly busy week here at the tiny house, but there is always room for turtle updates. Dear friends, your babies are unstoppable! We have more and more turtles.

Dear turtle friends, your eggs are now turtles

Since we shared our pawikan conservation project in Pag-asa, Bagac, Bataan, The Philippines, over 3000 baby turtles, locally known as pawikan, have hatched and were released back into the sea. We cannot say it enough, but thank you very much for your support!
