Cute in the cold.

It is rainy/cloudy outside and I am sick again! I have a cold and it sucks.

Bu. 😦

Before I go straight to bed with my tea, I want to share something.

It is first, ok, second day of March, my favorite month. That may or may not be because my birthday is in 2 weeks. Hehe. πŸ™‚

So. TRYING to tone down the little irritated voice with cute photos.

Sleeping bee

Have you ever seen a working bee sleeping? Well you have now! πŸ™‚

I went outside on the balcony one day this summer at my bf place. First I didn’t notice anything, but something caught my eye. I thought it was some kind of insect, because I have never seen a bee so still. My bf neighbor has beehives and he collects honey, so it’s not strange to see them there. It was raining and she hid under the column. She was sleeping (Don’t worry I asked her is she just resting, she did not answer – so she was in fact sleeping, and someone who saw me taking close-ups of a bee probably thinks I’m crazy. So, lets move on… πŸ™‚ )

This photo has a deeper meaning than just what you see. Later, I found out that it was raining during both of the periods bees collect honey (You remember how I was complaining about the constant rain? Well, it turns out I was complaining for the nature! πŸ˜‰ ) So, the bees couldn’t collect honey from the flowers, and there wasn’t enough flowers to begin with with no sunlight most of the time. The result is that this year we have drastically little amounts of honey in the market – which means that the honey is very expensive and we have to import, and people who are in the business with beehives and selling honey had to make major cuts to achieve the possibility to sell honey AND to leave enough for the bees to survive the winter. Turns out, my complaining about the rain – I was complaining for the economy AND for the people also!!

So… Next time I complain here a lot about something… I advise EVERYONE to listen. :mrgreen:

p.s Did anyone notice the WP changes? I am a bit lost….

p.p.s. Have you noticed the change in my photos? wink wink πŸ™‚

One for the Monday ;)

Have a great beginning of the week. Here it is raining – therefore, I am staying in my bed. πŸ˜€ Also I need to figure out bunch of stuff of which I can’t talk about, otherwise it will not be a surprise. πŸ˜‰ So, I guess I have to develop a skill that includes “chores from bed” and I stamp the Copyright on that name right here and now.

Thanks for the huge response on my last two posts. ❀

Beep beep boop

Does it say “beep beep boop” to you too when you start a new post?

These recent changes in WP are so weird, if I’m in the serious mood and about to rant about something, beginning with those words make me feel silly. πŸ˜€

I am mixture of emotions. Kinda mad, kinda frustrated, just a little bit sad and probably a little bit happy…. Weird shitz is going on. In Zagreb, the summer weather is non-existent. It is cloudy, raining, cold and windy. I do not like this joke. 😦

I want sun.

Summer is my favorite season and now it is letting me and everyone here down. People have planned vacations but the sea is cold from the rain and wind. I am indoors most of the year, so please, universe, SEND SOME SUMMER WEATHER… Pretty please.

I don’t feel inspired. I don’t feel like finishing my dress. I don’t feel like blogging. – that’s the part making me sad. :/

While I can’t get the Vitamin Sea, I want SUN and Vitamin D.

Daily PromptΒ asked about people we accidentally catch in our photos, and to make a story about them. No! What? I really don’t like having other people in my photos, it’s not their fault they are in my way… I don’t shoot portraits, if someone happens to end up on my photo I make sure their face is not recognizable, that they are far away or turned away from camera. I don’t know, I think everyone has the right to privacy and anonymity, if not chosen differently. Imagine that I end up in someone’s photo and that person is posting me on WordPress, making story about me. I dislike it.

Looking for inspiration? I inspire you today!

I wanted to do a video-marathon today of some of the videos I have watched recently. Thank you Spiritbath and thank you internet. There are good, kind and amazing people on this planet we call our own, and they (we) are trying to make a positive change and think with their own head. I love it! I hope you will find something for you… πŸ™‚

I want to inspire you, make you happy, make you smile and just boost your mood. I hope I can. πŸ˜€ I chose famous Charlie Chaplin’s speech for featured video because it is the king and queen of inspiration. It is the main thought of what the people on other videos are showing and trying to achieve.

 

Take a seat, make a friend!

Do I like fall…at all?

Do I like fall...at all?

I’ve been feeling kinda sick lately… I say kinda, because I’m not laying in bed with temperature (yet!), but my head hurts so much that I can’t blog as much as i want to. 😦 Oh the joys of changing seasons, the autumn is coming and with it so are colds, flu and other gifts of nature… πŸ˜•

Fall is really depressing, at least for me… Coming after awesome warm summer, suddenly it’s raining all the time, it’s getting colder every day and sunlight is rare and slowly giving the crown to the night more and more… Autumn has always been my least favorite season, I guess because school is starting, college is starting, responsibilities are starting. It was like an old guy telling me at 4 am that the party is over and he needs to close the club.

So, I was thinking to myself after I was caught in the rain yesterday with no umbrella, what do I LIKE about autumn?

I made a list. :mrgreen: It’s not a long one, but it still has more numbers than I thought it would have.

1. Colors. *.* I looooove autumn colors, the nature’s own decorations…

2. Tea. Fruit tea, green tea, mint tea, herb tea, mmmmm…. With lemon and honey. I cannot begin explaining how much I like tea… I don’t drink coffee, tea is my medicine. Since it’s to hot to drink it during summer, I return to him faithfully when the colder days arrive.

3. Watching rain falling. From inside! πŸ™‚ Or maybe going for a walk with umbrella.

4. Smell of rain in the air. Pure freshness. (Like a commercial)

5. Chestnuts roasted on fire… Awesome.

6. Watching movies under a ton of blankets, all warm and cosy…

7. Watching a storm. Again, from inside. Same as with the tea, I am a huge freak when it comes to storms, storm clouds, lightnings etc. I can watch trough window for hours just enjoying, watching how the wind goes through the trees and cars passing by… When i was just a little girl, I would do the same. We even lived in a place without lighting rod, but I was never scared. I have been photographing for years the clouds but now I finally have a place to put those photos. πŸ™‚

8. Halloween! Muahahahaha… It has been few years since we “adopted” this holiday from USA, but it is really a joy. We still have our own masquerade in february. Halloween is more fun for adults, no one goes trick or treating on Halloween, but everyone goes clubbing under masks. πŸ˜€

9. And the most important thing… Christmas is coming! Soon, the city will be filled with decorations and festive lights. Delight!

10. With Christmas there comes a New Year, and it seems that I love looking in the sky because I adore fireworks. This is not fall anymore, but it is certainly something I look forward too. And I wantedΒ to end with number 10. πŸ˜€
