“No I’m not lucky I’m blessed, YES!”

“Heavy weight champion me

But I could do it all alone – we”

You don’t have to be like ❓ , it’s me, you know it’s a song… 😉

When I pause in that moment to come up with a title and turn to my mind… I know what I’m gonna find. It is quite handy to have stored lyrics for every occasion haha…

I am thankful, very much! I have been awarded again and again, but just didn’t have the enthusiasm needed to do this… I hope you forgive me, it really means a lot to me. ❤

I was looking at posts where I have been nominated and found something super interesting and amusing. I have got one award for Sisterhood of World Blogger Award, one for Very Inspiring Blogger and THREE awards for One Lovely Blog!

I guess that makes my blog…. THREE TIMES MORE LOVELY!

Okidoki, now it’s time for the mentions and praising and I have no idea for what else, but I will found out in about 30 seconds.

First, Tina The Mess from The Borderline Personality humbled me with two awards in June, Very Inspiring Blogger and One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you! I hope you are fine going on better!

Mumojay from Cookie My lifestyle cooked my lifestyle up with another One Lovely Blog Award in July. THANK YOU! ❤

Vic from Shards of silence kindly presented to me another One Lovely Blog Award, and to definitely convince me that my blog is super lovely, Christina from Lifebeinggirly nominated/awarded me today. 🙂

Vic, thanks so much, I hope you didn’t choose me just because you didn’t have anyone else to give the award to (not being a guy) 😛

Christina, thanks. 🙂 I think you walk half feet of the ground and need a stone just to hold you how positive you come across.

It really makes me happy when you nominate me for whatever you want to nominate me for. I might won’t make a post about it, or follow the rules, but you’ll know you made my day… ❤

They are cool to look at like this, right? 😀 I had to do it…

So… Now the fun part. I think I am supposed to answer 7 things about me for every one…that is too much things about me, even for your tender eyes, my dearest. I’m just gonna say (brag) what I did (saw) today.

International Space Station is circulating over Croatia from today up until August 19. And they had mentioned that it will be visible at 21 (9 pm), but I missed that. I was sad, but then I read that it will be visible again in 22:38 (10 pm) and I went on the balcony. I have pretty good view and I was determined to see it because it has been cloudy for…. years now, and today is clear sky. And then I saw it. What, the Station? Nope, the first of this years Perseid’s meteors!!! 😀 It is a yearly event, happens in mid August for Northern Hemisphere and I enjoy in it! Specially because last year I found a place without light pollution from city lights and lied down on grass looking at stars and meteors passing through… Plus; I saw the Station today too! It looks like a bright star moving very fast on the sky 😀

I love stars ans sky and you know that already. To see a meteor is exciting to me… I feel alive and special and extra small at the same time,living on this tiny planet compared to universe.

Perseids Meteor Shower *make a wish…*

Perseids Meteor Shower *make a wish...*

Hello! What’s up? I’ve been painting indoor walls for the past three days and I’m knocked down. Tired…. But! I did find time to go watching my favorite meteor shower of the year – Perseids! 😀 As you will soon find out I am a freak for every kind of nature thing, or change of weather, or anything really. I am fascinated by shooting stars (which are Perseids, kinda 🙂 ), stars in general, moon, sky, sun, sunsets, clouds… Sea… Trees… Yap. Anything. Something more, something less. The good thing is that I have awesome Canon camera to take thousands of pictures. 😀 Prepare yourself for a lot of photos on this blog, don’t say I didn’t warn you. 😉 And I think I’m actually good at it, so I have my camera and my confidence, awesome combo.

If you want to know what exactly Perseids are – click, click. You can see them every year in the middle of August. This year they are visible until August 24, but this past weekend was the best view. Also, they are visible only on Northern hemisphere.

Aaaaany way, people living in city know how frustrating is trying to focus on the stars, the city lights are to bright and create light area over the sky known as light pollution. So I have to find some kind of dark spot every year, which is not as easy as it sounds because every dark area is covered by street light, and if you go to parks or woods the trees are blocking the view. I was so lucky to absolutely accidentally find awesome place – like a hill with woods around. The view was breath-taking, I brought blanket with me, lay down on grass and just relax. 🙂

I have to brag, I saw 10 (in letters TEN) shooting stars, of which four were magnificent. Past years I was lucky if I saw one or two of them. I’m definitely coming back on that hill next year.
