Eggs and rhubarb

Since we moved to the countryside we haven’t bought eggs in a supermarket. We only eat eggs when we can get from happy chickens. Why!? The taste and nutrition! We are buying eggs from Janis uncle! He has 15 chickens and that is enough for us 🙂 We are happy to see chickens running around freely and sometimes we bring […]

Fully packed Friday

Can’t believe my Friday was so intense! I manage to deal with a lot of house chores and also spend time with girls while Janis was helping to build a playground for Helmī kindergarten group. This isn’t the first time he is helping and I’m proud of having such a nice hearted man in my life! So… about my Friday! […]

When apple trees bloom

When apple trees bloom I feel summer is near! It’s getting warmer and warmer and the grass is growing inch per day! Apple trees are in bloom now in Latvia! This year orchard looks like a blanket of light pink flowers full of bees and other insects. Still a lot of dandelions 🙂 But I spent a bit of a […]

Poor Little Linna!

My poor little Linna is ill! Yesterday I came back from a photoshoot and saw Linna and knew she is ill! She was 39.6°C yesterday late at night! It’s high! Very high! I know that others give medicine to get the temperature down, but I don’t. I believe that the high temperature is better than medicine. An immune system is […]

Marley and a Dog!!

Maybe I’m stressed, maybe just “softy”, but when I saw a neighbors dog chasing my cat in the deep snow I fell into panic!!! I saw that through a window and the next thing was, my Marley tried to escape by jumping on a firewood stack. But the dog pulled him down for a second. And by that time I […]

New Me… Old Me?

Well, as you know, I have long hair… …and then (every 3 years) I decided to show up to my hairdresser (in Salacgriva)… She always does a great haircut! I always love the result! But somehow I end up having a long and “not tidy” hair! This time they are extra short to be sure I can’t grow them back […]

I love jigsaw puzzles!

As you know I’ve been jigsawing lately. I run out of puzzles so I bought a new one! I wish there a puzzle renting place 🙂 This is the latest puzzle I did. As usually, after finishing a puzzle I took a picture and then put back in a box. I didn’t check if the picture was good enough before […]

Mini Rally & PJ party

What is a mini-rally? Well, it’s the name of an amateur rally here in Latvia. Why am I writing about this!? Jānis is participating in it! He is co-driver: reading off a set of pacenotes to the driver. While he was 450 km away from home we (girls) had a PJ party! Girls are sad when Jānis isn’t home and also fight! […]
