What do I anticipate?

 auntyuta  DiaryLife in AustraliaOld Age  March 17, 2013 1 Minute


Here’s our Buddha. He seems to be happy enough in this wilderness area near our house. Being the 5th Sunday of Lent today, I should have attended Mass. However so far I didn’t go out at all yet. This afternoon we’re off to neighbouring Warrawong to watch Steven Spielberg’s Movie about LINCOLN.

So far so good. I am very happy that I am very much pain-free today. Tomorrow I’ll have to see the doctor about the test results. I anticipate the blood-test is going to show that I am okay.

What else do I anticipate? Well, I anticipate that I’ll probably live for another five or ten years. I also anticipate that I might perhaps even be able to venture on another overseas trip when I am in my eighties!

For next month I anticipate that we’re going to see the family over Easter and that Peter and I are going to enjoy our planned trip to Victoria. The beautiful warm summer weather will be gone by then. However I am looking forward to see a bit of the country side and then be spending a few days with family in Melbourne.

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.

  1. likeitiz EditGlad to hear you are out and about. Feel badly about the pain though. I hope you’ll enjoy “Lincoln.” My hubby and I found it quite powerful. Stay well!Reply
    1. auntyuta EditWell, we all have to suffer a bit of pain from time to time. I’m glad I feel better now. I am sure “Lincoln” will be worth watching. Thanks for commenting, Mary-Ann.Reply
      1. auntyuta EditWe’re back from seeing “Lincoln”. This was a movie with heart and soul and a great history lesson. What Lincoln had to say was very significant, even for modern times. I’d like to hear it all over again.
  2. berlioz1935 EditI hope you anticipate that I’m with you all the way. It is important that old people are not lonely. In today’s societies the elderly are often left to their own devices.I’m looking forward to our trip to Mildura and Melbourne. We will see our son and Granddaughter. I did do the same trip more than fifty years ago. What do I anticipate? Change !Reply
    1. auntyuta EditA trip to Mildura after a fifty year absence, Peter? For sure a lot of things will have changed. But maybe some things haven’t changed.?.And don’t forget we are also going to see our son’s extended family in Melbourne. I am so looking forward to seeing our great-granddaughters again. We didn’t see them for one whole year!. And it’s even been longer since we’ve seen the granddaughter who’s coming for a visit to Melbourne at the same time that we’re going to be there. Judging by the pictures she puts always on your face-book, she’s already very grown up and beautiful! When we were in Melbourne more than a year ago we were able to see both our granddaughters there, the daughters of our son. They’re both so very beautiful! And our grandson, the son of our son, he has such a beautiful family. We love them!Our son we haven’t seen for eight months. He came to stay with us for a week when Gaby died. Took the week off work, hired a big enough car to cart the whole family around on frequent trips to Sydney while the memorial for Gaby had to be organized. It will be good to see our son again, who’s birthday is on the 8th of April.Reply
  3. catterel EditNice positive post, Uta – a long and healthy life to you both. I’ve been missing my family back in switzerland – but that’s only a 2-hour flight away! So you have put things into perspective for me, distance is all relative! Thank you.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThank you, Cat.Reply
  4. Robert M. Weiss EditUta, good luck with your health, and I hope you achieve your long-range plans. Having positive thoughts, and walking on a daily basis, never hurts.Reply
  5. auntyuta EditThanks, Robert, I’ll keep it in mind!Reply
  6. Three Well Beings EditI certainly hope you’re in excellent health, Uta. Your list of anticipations is wonderful. You have an excellent outlook on life and that should keep you around for a very long time yet! Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThank you, Debra, thank you very much! Reply
  7. Island Traveler EditI’m glad you are pain free. I do believe the test results will be okay as well. I hope and pray for your good health my friend and that of your family. Happiness lives in your heart always.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditThanks for your prayers and good wishes, dear IT.
      I am very lucky that I have a good dentist and good doctors to look after my health. I feel I have a very good life and am very grateful for this.Reply
  8. aussieian2011 EditTravel while you can Auntyuta, there is still much to see in our beautiful country, hope you get a chance to see our beautiful Murray river up here in Mildura, the weather is quite mild these days now, Autumn will be on us soon.Reply
    1. auntyuta EditOh yes, Aussieian, I anticipate Peter and I are going to have a wonderful day at your beautiful Murray river. Really looking forward to this! Yesterday we travelled to the western suburbs of Sydney. It felt like a hot summer day!Reply
  9. eof737 EditHe looks serene. Reply
  10. auntyuta EditYes, always, Eliz.Reply
  11. auntyuta EditReblogged this on AuntyUta and commented:This post I published more than six years ago. I anticipated to live probably for another five to ten years. Ah well, I just celebrated my 85th birthday. Now I anticipate that maybe I am going to live four another four or five years! Reply
  12. aussieian2011 EditTravel while you can Uta, it keeps the heart young, maybe a visit to the beautiful mountain country of Healesville and Marysville will lure you, not far from Melbourne, up in the hills, pristine mountain waters rippling over mountain streams, crisp air invigorating for the lungs and superb rural countryside vista, wherever you go, enjoy.Reply
  13. auntyuta EditIt is 2022 now. In less than three months I am going to be 88.
    Am I going to make it to 90? – And maybe a bit past ninety?
    Who knows! It is possible that old age won’t let me live much longer.
    It might be better for me to die pretty soon before I become too incapacitated. . . .Reply

What Life was like for me and Peter towards the End of 2020

I just try to reblog this post to my other site




A few days ago I thought of Evie’s upcoming third birthday, and I wrote the above in a comment to one of my blogs.

So, Evie’s birthday is going to be on the 13th of September!

And what was Peter’s and my life like in September 2020?

Well, In Australia we have Father’s Day on the first Sunday of September. Our daughter Gaby’s Birthday had been on the 28th of August. In 2020 Peter had baked a cake in memory of Gaby’s Birthday. The Father’s Day in 2020 was on…

A Great Week

I’ve just been reading all this again and think, it is worth reblogging.
It would be nice, if some of my followers would find it interesting too.
I did write this post nearly seven years ago. Have I changed a lot since then? Probably, for my life has changed very much since then, as some of my followers would be only too aware of. Yes, I think my life is very, very different now. But I am now more or less getting used to this different stage in my life! 🙂
So, life is a constant change. This is just what we have to learn to accept! 🙂

Tuesday was the 21st of September, my birthday. I did not only have a Great Day, but also a great week. It reminded me of my 80th birthday in 2014, when I was celebrating for days on end.

I had another look at what I wrote in September of 2014 and 2015, and decided to reblog it, for it was very interesting for me to see all the pictures and what I wrote about my parents. So, I imagine it to be a bit interesting too for some other people to have a look at it. Anyway, I hope so! 🙂

Here is what I posted in 2015:

Last Sunday turned out to be a lovely family day at our home. It was beautiful to be surrounded by children, grand-children, and great grand-children for a few hours in the afternoon. Some almond-cake was left from Gaby’s birthday.There was…

Augusto Cesar Sandino’s rebellion against the US

“US Marine invasion and occupation of his country which began in 1911 . . . ”
So, Sandino was one of the most important and successful guerilla fighters of the 20th century? This is somehow remarkable, isn’t it?

How Sandino fought for Nicaragua’s independence, lost and remained a hero for its people
‘The mouse kills the cat’: Augusto Cesar Sandino’s rebellion against the US

Before Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, before Ho Chi Minh and before Mao began his Long March, there was Augusto Cesar Sandino. 

While Sandino is not a household name in much of the world, as these others are, he was one of the most important and successful guerilla fighters of the 20th century, successfully driving the US Marines out of Nicaragua against nearly impossible odds. His image, with his iconic Tom Mix cowboy hat tilted to one side, continues to be the most ubiquitous symbol in Nicaragua – a country led by the Sandinista Front, named in his honor.

Unlike the aforementioned revolutionaries, Sandino was not an intellectual and he was not a Marxist. Rather, he…

The end of a superpower – The collapse of the Soviet Union | DW Documentary

Mar 4, 2022

Russian President Vladimir Putin described the collapse of the Soviet Union as “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century.” This documentary from 2021 shows the path Russian foreign policy has followed under Putin. [This documentary was originally released in 2021. In February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine.] On December 25, 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed. Along with it came hope for the end of the Cold War, for independence and freedom for the former Soviet republics. But for many it also brought poverty and war. What remains of the dreams of that time? The documentary includes contemporary witnesses and politicians of the decisive years and shows what has become of the legacy of a world power.

Tulsi Gabbard Shreds Biden Admin: ‘They Weaponize Government Against the People’

Watch Tulsi Gabbard’s keynote speech on God, Freedom, and Democracy – Live from the Western Conservative Summit, Denver.

Gabbard’s remarks come amid a 75-day “pause” on the DHS rollout of its “Disinformation Governance Board”, where the department will review how to make the public more receptive to its Orwellian “Ministry of Truth.”

“. . . parents attending school board hearings to condemn critical race theory and gender ideology indoctrination programs. . .”

Do these critics go as far as voicing the opinion that they d o want race-discrimination and no homosexuality?

This is a totally different issue, isn’t it?

I think, the government should not be allowed to suppress true information.

However, nobody should think they have a right to discriminate against
another person.

  • stuartbramhallon  said:Aunty, I think the nub of the issue is that mainstream media (and the Democrats) are trying to portray parents as bigoted when they express concern about public schools introducing children as young as 5 to extremely abstract concepts about race and sexual identity before they are old enough to fully grasp abstract concepts – and without parental consent.In my mind, the gender ideology and racial sensitivity training are two separate issues that parents are complaining about.As for the gender ideology, when I was in school, sex education was only offered at age 10-up and only with parental consent. At present, children as young as 5 are being taught that physical sex doesn’t equate with sexual identity and that people can hold as many as 24 different sexual identities. I’ve watched unhappy young people exposed to this ideology coming to the conclusion prior to adolescence that changing their gender is the automatic solution. With the result that they (and their teachers) put pressure on the parents to allow them to start puberty blockers at 11 and the hormones of the opposite sex two years later. The physical suffering they undergo from these treatments (which have never been tested for long term safety) is immense. Likewise there has never been any long term evaluation of the effect of exposing young children to gender ideology training, especially when the teachers are given little or no training on the appropriate way to teach it/Here in New Zealand, I fully support parents who decide to home school their kids to protect them from being exposed to what in my mind is basically propaganda with little or no scientific basis. While there are a number (around 1%) of children who are born as intersex individuals (with unclear external genitalia), I don’t believe that encouraging all preteen children to opt out of normal puberty will in anyway reduce or discourage discrimination against adult homosexuals and transsexuals.Critical Race Theory is a separate issue because Critical Race Theory is actually a university level area of study addressing the issue of what’s known as “intersectionality.” “Intersectionality” is the process of looking at a person’s social disadvantage on the basic of “intersecting” minority identities (usually class, ethnicity, sexual identity, sexual orientation, religion and level of disability). There is no way they are teaching Critical Race Theory in elementary school because there is no way young children can absorb such complex ideas.In my mind, CRT is another wedge issue, like gun control, to get people on the right and left to fight each other rather than the ruling elite.Liked by youReply ↓
    • auntyutaon  said:Stuart, thank you very, very much for this reply to clarify the situation. Even though I have children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, it did not occur to me that this sort of thing was going on in elementary school. One grandson and his wife preferred to home school there two daughters when they were little! I always thought it was their right to do this. But I think I understand a bit better now what their motives may have been.
      When I went to school, sex education was not a school subject, not at all. As far as I know, all my children experienced very limited sex education, and this only past the age of 12 in high-school.

Who were the Neanderthals? | DW Documentary


Jan 24, 2021

Long before Homo sapiens populated the earth, the Neanderthals lived in Eurasia. Now, paleoanthropologists in England and France are using new archeological methods to shed light on some previously unexplained Neanderthal mysteries. In an age clouded by the mists of time, the first early humans colonized the Eurasian continent. They settled on land that had only recently been covered by glaciers. This species, called Neanderthals, died out about 30,000 years ago — but at one time, they formed the largest group in an area that stretched from northern France to the Belgian coast and from the Channel Islands to southern England. During the last Ice Age, the North Sea was frozen over — and the English Channel was a small river that could easily be crossed on foot. The Neanderthals lived in close harmony with their perpetually changing environment. They had everything they needed to survive: the…

WHO Forced into Humiliating Backdown

Signing away our country’s sovereignty?
Really, who is willing to do such a thing? I can’t believe it!

The Most Revolutionary Act

By Stephen Andrew Mirani

One Nation

Brilliant news out of Geneva today!

As most of you know, the World Health Assembly has spent the past 7 days considering Biden’s 13 controversial amendments to the International Health Regulations.

Official delegates from wealthy developed nations like Australia, the UK, and the US spoke in strong support of the amendments and urged other states to join them in signing away their countries’ sovereignty.

The first sign, however, that things might not be going the globalists’ way, came on Wednesday, the 25th of May, which just happened to also be Africa Day.

Botswana read a statement on behalf of its 47 AFRO members, saying they would be collectively withholding their support for the ‘reforms’, which many African members were very concerned about.

Multiple other countries also said they had reservations over the changes and would not be supporting them either.

These included Brazil…

Early Memories

This blog does bring back to me a lot of memories!


Before I was three we lived in Taunus Strasse, Berlin- Friedenau. Some time during 1937 we moved to Bozener Strasse in Berlin-Schöneberg. This is where Tante Ilse and Onkel Addi lived as well and also my friend Cordula and her parents. Later on we did get to know Family T. who lived in the house opposite our apartment building.

During my early childhood Bozener Strasse was a very quiet street. There were no cars parked in the street.

Tante Ilse had this narrow but very long balcony with a lot of plants to water. As a two year old I loved to help with watering some of the plants!

Uta loves to water the plants. Mum is looking on. Uta loves to water the plants. Mum is looking on.

Here Mum still has this “Bubikopf” which I believe became fashionable already in the 1920s.

In the next picture, which was taken in Bozener Strasse on 21st September 1947, my brother…
