A lovely snowy week

Four pictures are worth four thousand words ;-)

View from my bed :-)

A lovely snowy day

Three pictures are worth three thousand words.

I'm so proud :-)

Exactly a year after I started regular Body Balance workouts I can finally make a front split (spagat).

Now that flexibility is sort of back, I need to start working on cardio and strength.

There is a place that just doesn't stop to amaze you. You never know what's coming around the next corner and probably it will be something unexpected and wonderful.

I mean, I've seen my share of the world but I have not yet seen anything like that.
Like, seriously.

Oh, did I say this is Sintra?

Tiger time!

My best friend was celebrating her birthday and what could be more appropriate than a tiger-tray with some sauce serving cups.

Cut from a mahogany plywood and drawn with a pyrograph. I did get the picture from the Internet, though.

The three "drops" on the tiger are to prevent the pots from sliding.

Me happy.

I just silently wish I had someone who made such presents for me...

Oh well ...

You know you're old when you no longer understand current fashion.

Well, I'm officially old.

Because I cannot possibly imagine why anyone would want to wear these camel-toe cloven hoof boots...

Or this, for that matter. Seriously? Project Runway challenge gone wrong.

Oh, and what would be more appropriate than to realise that you're officially old on the day of your birthday :-)

I just love kids' science projects. This time we went stargazing and it's amazing that just about 15 min from the city centre you can see a wonderful starry sky.

Orion with his large dog.

The two bears with Polaris.
