Working in the greenhouse

Goodmorning Sunday, Yesterday after having fun we went to the manor, to do grass trimming and deal with greenhouse. Deal – because my eggplants and paprika can’t wait much longer! They need beds! Janis went trimming grass and I looked around for a solution to make beds inside the greenhouse for my plants. We ordered a pre-made bed for the […]

Saturday fun!

Is Saturday for work or for fun!? We had fun before work. Finally, after I don’t know how many months… I think almost 2 years we visited our neighbour and actually Nelles classmate! They hadn’t seen each other since March 16! We celebrated the end of the school year and since we didn’t go to schools Lāsma took Nelles school […]

What is another word for BUSY!?

So, what is another word for BUSY!? I had a dream and another woman had it too… and now we have a project to make this dream come true, together! Today I worked on the first part of this project and what can I say it’s so good to do what you love and do it together with people that […]

Salacgriva

I went to Salacgriva to charge my batteries! I didn’t take a camera with me but I took a laptop to be sure I have an opportunity to write a blog post or check my email (don’t like to check my mail on the phone). So, my mom loves to walk at seashore and dunes and she took me to […]

Sliding down the…hump?!

I love seeing that my kids don’t care if it’s hill, knoll, hillock or just a hump! Sliding down (even) the hump is fun! It’s not like we don’t have bigger humps around but why walk somewhere if you have one in the garden 🙂 They used sledge, bump slid and even bigger plastic bag to slide down the hump […]

Out of sight, Out of mind!

I grow up in a small city – Salacgriva. It’s near the sea… or to be precise – gulf. The Gulf of Riga. Never called it gulf. Sea. Always. Spent my summers sunbathing in sand and swimming – it’s safe – no jellyfish or sharks 🙂 Now I’m 200 kilometers (about miles) away from the sea and people ask if […]

Misty Mornings

Beautiful misty mornings are here! I love those mornings but don’t like the fact that autumn is coming! And by autumn I don’t mean colorful leaves, sunny days and stunning views! What I don’t like is rainy weeks, muddy roads, blues and sneeze that comes with it… Am I the only one struggling to smile and be happy in late […]

Full Moon & Mosquitoes!

Beautiful full moon tempted me to go outside at night (I’m a bit afraid of the dark, if alone outside) with a camera in hand. Is it just me or are there more mosquitoes this year? I bet Mosquitoes number hasn’t changed. That is because so many people have left Latvia to work in UK, Ireland, Norway, etc., only a few […]

Sunny & hot

Can’t believe the weather this year! It’s so hot and sunny for weeks! Haven’t rained or at least not in the daytime. Maybe few nights had rain but it wasn’t heavy for sure! Usually, it’s not that hot here in Latvia. Those who love warm weather are happy now. When I was in Salacgriva for three days I did a […]
