Once the nice weather (theoretically) comes, the Mairie (city hall - in this case, the village hall) organizes a set of events in the parc. There are sometimes concerts, theatre plays and games for big and small alike. This year we have had a lot of rain around here (and still do). Even with the raindrops sprinkling down the little ones have really enjoyed a cute pantomime and music piece.
Then the school organizes their end of year 'kermesse' with games and food and poney rides. Everyone likes that one. And then there are birthdays we have starting attending since, we are bigger now, you know. The one below at one of the appartments in a nearby castle, sweet picture.
Often I think about the chance we have to live in a pretty area, in a house with garden and in a country where health insurance is really good. Although we have had mainly only rainy weather since October last year, and we, I mean I, feel isolated sometimes from my friends and family and roots and native places and memories that come every once in a while, I still thank God almost daily for taking care of me. I do however think sometimes about how my life would have been had I never left wondering the world. If a crystal ball existed, this is the only thing I would like to see.
Nonetheless, so many of us are so much better than so many others who don't even have a mother, or a roof, or food, or simply love.
Isn't life a riddle....

Ah, it's been quite a while...and quite a bit has happened around here.
I had finished my English teaching classes back at the end of May and right away to Romania for Easter! And my birthday at the same time:) The petite princesse enjoyed it, my parents live in the appartment I grew up in, surrounded by other appartment buildings and parks and lots and lots of kids! You get down a flight of stairs and bum, you're in kiddos' land. The city is not big so you can even walk everywhere and the world there is almost paradoxical: people are stressed because of the job situation yet at the same time they don't look like they give a d..n; the streets are full, they fill the terrasses, they chat, they live. I am bummed not to have the pics but I can't find that camera!
Then, back home for a little while and off to my sister's marriage in Spain, close to Barcelona. Awesome weather, the beach and a small pretty wedding.
And back home.
In the meanwhile, the business thing is in progress. Awaiting for a draft of the website, getting ready to order the labels, ordered lots of fabric and working on patterns. It should all be ready for September- October, in time for Christmas :) I still need to get more organized....my girl says that my studio is a" dezastru" - yeap, disaster area. Should I post a picture of that maybe...
