Photo: Autumnal sunset

Yesterday was my birthday and we had lovely weather, so in the afternoon (after baking muffins), I went chasing the sunset.

And if you haven't yet seen my dancing cat, here's the video:

Pokljuška soteska, Slovenia.

As a photographer it might be better to go there in summer, when there might be more light :) I went there on Monday afternoon.

Poem: Hands, Fingers and Arms

I imagine my HANDS 
...having a watch to count the good deeds
...having strength to raise children so they would be brave
...having posture to express more empathy than conformity
...using sparks that light up the hearts in need
...having enough warmth to offer shelter in the coldest of times
...having wisdom to share with others
...can set aside the differences between us
...knowing every forest like the back of the hand
I imagine my FINGERS 
...making symphonies with the stroke of grain
...are able to speak to the deaf
...don't tremble at the thought of fear
...can paint a better picture
...reaching into the deepest places in search for truth
...can recite old, forgotten tales
...can untangle the mysteries of the universe
...are the best toys and learning tools

I imagine my ARMS 
...are as soft as pillows, that dry away the sadness
...are calming like the sea waves
...are not tired after a days work
...have the power to stand the time
...are growing new flowers
...offering support to every blossom or seed
...can dance joyfully with anyone
...can welcome birth and death with the same grace

and in the end I imagine they are able to forgive 
                what has or hasn't been done

Blog: Update and the first snow

I've had some time on my hands, since I only have a diploma to write and some other minor things (school related) and I haven't yet found a part time job. So here's what I did.

Pizza/tortillia: veggie; delicious and easy to make and improvise.

Veggie chilly. I used way too much chilli.

Cake with dried fruits - doesn't look like much, but it's delicious!! I baked it for my boyfriends birthday.

Aloe vera gel: my plant kind of died and I had lots of leaves, so I decided to make use of them. You add vitamin C and E (I only crushed a pill of vit.C) and pill the leaves and store in the fridge up to a year. It's perfect to use it for cuts and bruises.

 I dried peppermint leaves to make tea.

My father found a cowboy hat..well, mushroom.

I planted ginger, still waiting so see it grow... I also bought extra so I'm now drinking ginger tea with honey - it's the best tea :) almost. It's great to relieve nausea and gas and it also helps fighting off colds!

Speaking of cold. We had a warm summer autumn, see it here:
But on Friday snow fell:

I took photos of a spiders web right outside my window, and this one was taken during the night, and I love how it came out.

This was the day after the snowfall, and it was so strange seeing snow melt away and the green leaves showed, usually you see bare branches after the snow.

And now for something completely different:

Guarding apples from ants
