Let's Have More Fun!

Hello everybody, Happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. So, whenever I find myself forgetting the joy and fun in life, I go to cultural and traditional events like this. I always enjoy to watch other people feeling free and alive, a sense of passion, excitement and exhilaration.
Unfortunately, when we "grow up" too many of us don't even know what we think is fun. Sometimes we get so caught up with the things such as job, chores, daily obligations that we almost forget to have fun. But we all need to have a little fun, especially in these difficult times. Laughter brings about positive feelings; excitement, joy and enthusiasm for life. 

Hope you have a great weekend! Wishing all a wonderful Holiday Season. x

Growing Herbs Indoors

I will admit, I don't have much of a green thumb. In fact, I am the most reluctant gardener. But because I do enjoy picking fresh herbs straight from my kitchen "garden" I've decided to grow some of my favorite herbs indoors. Mint, Oregano, Rosemary, Italian Parsley, Chives.

You can grow herbs indoors on the windowsill in pots in well-draining soil.

Here's Jamie Oliver's Ultimate Guide to Growing Herbs, a very interesting and wonderful read.

I believe it's well worth growing your own herbs to have fresh herbs to hand.

Hope you have a lovely weekend! xx

Welcome Fall!

Hello my dears! Hope y'all are doing well. I know it's been a while since I posted on here as I've been down for the past three weeks; sometimes things get so out of control...stress, family health issues, headache. I was tired, mostly I was walking up tired. 

On another note, hard to believe that summer is over, but I must say that I am ready to let go of the heat and humidity this summer brought to some parts of the Northern Hemisphere, including the place I live. Global warming they say.

Well, I am so ready for Autumn! Fall is cosy and calm, generous and giving and carries beautiful colors in its pocket.

Hope you have a lovely weekend! xx

Bereavement Hallucination

Home isn't a place; it's a feeling. That said, my home holds so many memories for me. Sometimes I fleetingly feel my parents' presence, as if they were still alive. It's such a weird feeling... 

In the months after they died, it was hard to be in the house without them. It still is. It was their house and it still feels like they should be here. Every corner is filled with their life. I love my house. How could I not? 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xx

Summertime + Have a Lovely Weekend

So, in my childhood days, summers meant everything. For me, summer is all about beach and nature, wildflowers, longer days and peaceful sounds of crickets at night. When summer is in full swing what better way to beat the heat than spending some time in the countryside. Countryside is an incredibly relaxing environment. The air is fresh and quiet and time flows differently in the countryside. It will remind you how humans are supposed to live. 

Here's a delicious summer Summer Cocktail.

Hope you have a lovely, relaxing weekend! xx
