Unexpected visitors

The Latvian saying is, that the best visitors are those who came unexpected! Sometimes I don’t agree with this… but today we all screamed when saw Jānis friend Aivars, his puppy Belis and Helmī God Father Ronalds walk through the doors!   Happy girls and happy little puppy! Ilze

Nelle is 6 now!

So, I was off the blogging cause I “made” Nelles’ birthday party! This was my 12th kids birthday party I have thrown. Well, I would say I never learn! Still doing it by myself, still cooking, baking cakes, making decorations, cleaning, planting flowers, etc… even when I don’t have much time left. This is called love, I guess… I hope […]

Preparing for a party: Rhubarb

Rhubarbs! Normally in Latvia, all country houses have one big rhubarb growing next to barn or in the garden. But not this old house! There is small rhubarb here but it doesn’t like to grow in this soil. But the best part in all this is, that Lāsma (neighbor about one and a half kilometer away from us) came with […]

Doggy

We have Linnas Godfather here for the weekend and he brought his doggy to! Our Marley isn’t happy (since the dog stays inside all the time and eats what’s left in Marley’s bowl) but we are trying the best to show love to our Marley :). I hope that by the end of the day they will be friends 🙂 […]

Cold, Windy but Lovely!

Yesterday, I submitted my Business Plan and had a little party at home :). Actually, it was because of Ronalds (Helmī godfather) who came to us from Germany! Today we used Ronalds as a personal driver and went to Gulbene for a walk.. or so we thought! The weather was so cold and windy and terrible, that the only one who […]

Ronalds

Let’s introduce Ronalds! He is Janis cousin…and that is the “furthest relation with us” he owns. He is also something closer, he is Helmī’s God Father!     Since Ronalds is living in Germany and having a busy working schedule he visited us once a year. It is not like we can’t call each other or do a video call, but to […]

Sunday

Mario & Nora visited us on Saturday after Nora had choir show in Smiltene. We had a lovely time chatting inside cause weather outside was rainy & windy! Sunday morning I started with coffee and made Tuna tortilla wraps. After that, there were chatting & chilling! I was too relaxed to look for my phone, so no “evidence pictures” of […]

Ome Mārīte / Grandma Marite

Grandma is here so all the girls have a day off the kindergarten. As always we have a ton of chores to do and Marīte is 100 times quicker than me… She wanted to fold laundry, but before that girl is giving her SPA. Linna covered her arms with Weleda regenerating hand cream while Nelle styled her hair. Linna was […]

Linnas Godfather

Our beloved Linna’s godfather visited us on Monday. We chatted about life and how you get used to “unnormal” things pretty fast… And it’s true! In the first, you might think that something hit you very hard but after few times you get used to it! What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. Linna was as always – happy when […]
