Step away from the computer

I can’t go on my laptop or watch the TV because that makes my headache worse. So, what do I do? I write blog post on paper. Yes. You read it correctly. That’s the kind of dedicated blogger I am. Sorry. So hard not to laugh at the last sentence. 😀 I haven’t been regularly blogging for a while now. It just happens, you know? We plan and plan, but life happens. And there’s absolutely nothing we can do about that.

Croatian translates into: “I have planned everything, just have to wait for it to fall apart” Lol

Besides I dislike writing “just because I didn’t write”, or posting for that matter. It is unnatural to me and it doesn’t make me satisfied. The freedom I have from this platform through which I am reaching out to you, sharing and opening my world is priceless to me. That is how I feel about it. Others have their own ways and goals, I have this freedom, space, time… When I do how I want I feel honest, authentic. And the fact that you guys and girls like it just makes it more awesome! 🙂 Even if it means not posting two weeks when I could stay online and look at the screen and then grabbing a pen and writing my post in notebook. ❤

What to do when you can’t be online or watch TV? My first answer would be – go outside. Lets add more honesty into the current situation – that is not an option for today. At least not for the next few hours. So… what to do?

1. Sing

2. Before you start singing decide not to.

3. Dance with just your hands – it looks super funny.

4. Laugh at your dancing hands.

5. Talk to people.

6. Talk to yourself.

7. Look outside.

8. Establish that the weather is stupid this summer.

9. Miss your friends.

10. Notice that other people living with you don’t have the same problem and in this moment are watching something super interesting on YouTube.

11. Hand hurts from writing (I could write for hours in college few years ago).

12. Realize that college WAS few years ago.

13. Cry. Sing from heart. With the person who was watching stuff on YouTube.

14. Commit to singing.

15. Until someone stops you.

16. Start reading a book and develop real anger towards the main bad guy.

17. Contemplate about make-over.

18. For 2 seconds.

19. Try to make this list to the number 20.

20. Success.


Wow. This was a lot of work, I feel tired. Off to slipping/napping/trying to doze off for 15 minutes. I just realized that someone else will have to write this in WP. While I dictate. Like a boss. (Thank you. 🙂 )

Have fun awesome peeps.

Starting off May with awards and randomness


It has been raining/cloudy for a few days and it feels so good. I love the rain…thunder… I love it. I love sunny wheather also, but I am so much more in a mood for rainy days, so me and nature are in sync.


Awards. Thank you for complimenting my blogging this way. 🙂

I have been thinking about nomination this time away from computer. So, it’s extra special.

Thank you Arlene from Ari’s World for this Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award and another Dragon Loyalty Award. It got me thinking and I was left blessed. You will know why soon. I have met seven amaziiiiiiing women here who have been there for me in one way or another, and continue to be there for me even though they know me only through blogging… Their support means a lot to me. ❤



(Please don’t feel offended if you aren’t on the list, I was limited with seven.)

They are in no particular order:


These are among others, my sisters in the WP family ❤ I am very grateful for connecting with them.

I have got another award from Cee Lee from Swim in the Adult Pool, The Lovely Blog Award. Since I have already got it, I thought about giving it to the few of my latest follows who have really amazed me.

They are:

peacefulblessedstar from peacefulblessedstar
tamtam012013 from Perhaps yes, perhaps no. Exactly? I don’t know.
dorothychiotti from Musings of a Horse Mum
Shayne from The Book of Shayne
Neha from forgottenmeadows


And… seven random facts about myself, me and I… 🙂

1.    My nails are perfect. Seriously. My fingernails are beautiful, they don’t break, chip and they are au naturel. I have a photo for non believers. 😉 I also don’t let anyone near them, that means I have never had a manicure, I hate someone messing with my nails. I manicure them myself and I do it magnificently!

2.    I was born with one eye closed, it didn’t open for three days and doctors were like “Whaaaaaaaaa…t?” I imagine. They thought I would have a lot of problems but although I have to wear glasses, the difference between my eyes is very small in term of diopter.

3.    I was a straight A student (we have 1-5 here) up until college. He he

4.    I hate, hate horror movies. There is NOTHING enjoyable in them for me.

5.    I’m allergic to silver. So, its gold or no sold. XD
6.    My real name is Iva, but I know you are not pronouncing it right so I go by my nickname Ivy
7.    If you ever wondered why it says Ivyon when I comment – wonder no more! It is because Ivy is on-line when she is commenting. See! And you thought it was French.


Meet the Random Post Turtle ☺

Meet the Random Post Turtle ☺

I have been developing my skillz in this platform, ou yeah… And I wanted to have a Random Post button. You know what that is? The button on the side which you click and it takes you to a random post of mine. Fun! 😎

So… Meet Bob The Turtle. John. Elvis. No? Help me think of a name for him, I need to call him something. I got a gender, it’s a he. Why? Because.

I need your help. We need to name Bob. Or whatever his name is going to be. Since I am super creative and come up with Bob, you have to help me. 😀


Just to be clear, this is my photo, taken by me. If you would like to use it I’m ok with that, but it would be nice to ask first. 🙂
