And the next second the Sun was behind the horizon.

Balloon is filled with a bit of helium. Cat is confused. πŸ˜€ (On the balloon it says “Happy Birthday”)

IMG_0358It looked like a storm is coming but the clouds just passed through. (My favorite thing in this photo is the nest you can see in the branches of a tree. Spring is coming and the birds are coming back. Taken today.)

And finally, my photo of the eclipse taken on a home-made projector from paper. I eliminated light sources in the photo. This, ladies and gentleman is the Solar eclipse of 2015. πŸ˜‰

AND it is visible in Europe! For the first time since 1999.! Which I remember, by the way. πŸ™‚ That does not mean that there were no Solar Eclipses in between (2006., 2011.) but none as visible as the one in 1999.

YAY!

Here is the map of where it will be visible and I think you can get the info of when at your local online media.

And now, lets get more sciency. Is that a word? Now it is. πŸ˜‰

What causes a solar eclipse?

A solar eclipse happens whenever the new moon passes in front of the sun, and the moon’s shadow falls on our planet. A solar eclipse is only possible at new moon because that’s the only time whereby the moon to go in front of the sun, as seen from Earth. Most of the time, however, the new moon either swings north or south of the solar disk, so no eclipse of the sun takes place.

Why new moon? On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day. (source: earthsky.org)

Protect your eyes.

Do not look directly at the Sun. 😦 It causes permanent damage to your eye and possible blindness. That is no fun. That’s why you can look at the Solar Eclipse through glasses design for it and better telescopes with filters design for it. Also, you can catch a glimpse through a glass covered in carbon black, but that is not recommended. The best way to look at it is to make your projector. It is simple and instructions are here: MAKE YOUR PROJECTOR

Oh I can’t wait for professional photos of tomorrows Solar Eclipse and images from ISS (International Space Station) πŸ˜€

Ohhhh, a box. For me?

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mystery Box.”

3708

First of all, if I found a box next to my bed with “open if you dare” on it, I would freak out a bit over the fact that someone left a box with English sentence on it and maybe thinking I woke up in a parallel universe where we speak English in Croatia. πŸ˜‰

If it would say “Otvori ako se usudiΕ‘” I would probably be less worried. XD

And of course I would open it, what kind of question is that?! A beautifully wrapped box? With a “dare” on it? I am WAY to curious not to open it…

What’s inside?

Now that’s a dare for you to guess. πŸ™‚

Global meditation is tomorrow!

I look forward to global meditations on December 12 since I first joined one in 2012. They are always special and beautiful and it is amazing knowing that in the same time (it goes live) thousands and thousands people are listening to the same voice and imagining same things… πŸ™‚ ❀

I used to meditate quite often, when I was attending yoga. I loved visualization we learned at yoga classes. But I have lost that habit, and also the habit of breathing through my stomach – which is this awesome thing you learn with practicing yoga and it helps you to be more relaxed in everyday life. So, I love this opportunities from Master Shift to join again. πŸ™‚

If you love trying something awesome and just wanna relax, do tune in! Two meditation will be held as every year, for west and eastern hemisphere lasting 25 minutes.

More info and exact time of the start of the meditation video can be found via my Facebook page; IVY MOSQUITO and The Master Shift

Early morning she wakes up…

IMG_1064

This is my cat Kiki and today, by the special superpower from Daily Post (as if!) I get to tell her something she will understand.

β€œStop being so scared. It’s four of us in the house. Every day. That object you have seen 10 times…it’s still the same object. We are not plotting to kill you in your sleep.” πŸ˜€

“Oh yeah, waking me up in 5 am… not cool Kiki, not cool.”

She looks like she is really trying to understand me in this photo haha, you think she gets it? πŸ˜‰

p.s. Again the song inspiration for the title. :mrgreen:

You inspire me!

Yes you do! I have been chatting with my readers and bloggers I love – Hiiii girlssss πŸ˜‰ ❀

And I encourage others to comment and give chatting a chance because… No, because, you don’t need a reason. It’s awesome and surprisingly rewarding πŸ™‚

I learn a lot with chatting with you, you are all so supportive it makes me feel grateful. πŸ˜€

So, in conversations I got ideas for my future posts. Now, I don’t have time for all the ideas haha XD

I just wanted to tell you how awesome you are…

I will write about drinks in Croatia, post a lot of photos so you can see how was my cloudy summer and post some more recipes. Can’t wait!

This is for Zee – who two posts in a row has an honorable mention. Am I off the hook with Monopoly money? πŸ˜€
