The First Snowdrops this year

Off to shop some cake ingredients for B-day cake(s) It’ll be either one big cake or two small – we have two Birthdays to celebrate next week – mine and my husband’s so that requires lots of cake :)) I’m more inclined to one big cake of few layers with Raspberry jam or Ganache between them.

INNER EQUILIBRIUM – Original painting oil on canvas-featured

Back to the daily routine

Hospital visit was kinda successful, no sign of the kidney stone so another lithotripsy wasn’t necessary (thanks God). Now I’m given few month pause to see if there is some progress with healing, if not doctors will have to search for another reason causing the kidney hydronephrosis. I’m hoping to use this time to find my balance and my Muse (wherever TF she’s gone) and to create some stuff, this several months travels and hospital visits have drained me mentally and financially so I need to find my “Inner Equilibrium“!

Physalis – Exploring new tastes

Never tried one of these before and you know curiosity must be fed I’ve seen them in few culinary shows used as decoration so had to find out how they taste and Hmm.. actually strange, they have a texture and look quite similar to tomato and taste something between strawberry and grape to me, a bit confusing when you try them for a first time.
Physalis or Ground cherries as they’re known in Europe aren’t very often seen on European markets but I had the chance to satisfy my curiosity. Read more

Last Day of 2014 Featured

Last Day of 2014

Last Day of 2014! Only several hours to say Good Bye to this year and to welcome the New one, recharged with new hopes and expectations 🙂
… also time to open my Good things Jar and see what I’ve marked as good things that happened to me. There was a wonderful post with this idea I saw in the end of last year (can’t remember the author) and I decided to try it and bought my jar. I had to write down all: Surprise gifts, Accomplished goals, LOL moments, Memories worth saving, Days of Happiness and all the other Great stuff. As it looks my jar doesn’t contain many notes, I’m gonna read them tonight in the last hour of the year which for me personally was quite hard and harsh, disappointments and problems were more than the happy moments and people that let me down more than those that gave me a hand but … Read more


Few reasons I love February

There are few reasons I love February about and they make it my favorite month.
Firstly because January is the most boring month in the year – cold, dull, short days with no sunshine to make you smile. Most people still recover from the holidays and all expenses related to these holidays, many feel guilty they have spent more they can afford, other feel heavier with few more pounds and cannot get in most of the pieces from they wardrobe after the lavish holiday tables. So there is February coming and I like it at least 10 times more than January. Why? Maybe because I hate January, but also for these personal reasons of mine: Read more

Gustav Klimt The Kiss

150 Years of Gustav Klimt’s Birth

Today the world celebrates 150 years of the birth of my favourite artist Gustav Klimt. I had the chance to see some of his amazing artworks in live in Belvedere palace Vienna and I was really impressed. “The Kiss” his most famous painting is a real masterpiece, impressive with its size and unique technique. When you stand in front of it you can feel the great talent of this Austrian Symbolist who is in my opinion the most prominent member of the Vienna Secession movement. Let everybody who admire Gustav Klimt’s art honour his memory today. Read more
