Our little friend, made few days ago... who already melted by now :(.

But winter has just started, we will have more chances to play with the snow probably.

Can someone turn off the snowing, please?

This is the view from my living room window. It has been snowing all afternoon yesterday and all night long and it seems it has no intention to stop. It's nice, I don't deny that... but I still think we have enough of snow for now. I mean, winter even hasn't started yet officially and snow in the cities is causing nothing but troubles. I like snow around Christmas time and during the school winter vacation which is in February, but otherwise in my opinion it should be forbiden for snow to fall in the cities, it should be just the privilege of mountains!

So, dear whoever, turn it off now and save some for Christmas, please! Thanks in advance!

I'm going out now to find my car and save it from all this snow. Hmmm... I need to find a broom and shovel first. And I just wonder how many cars on the parking lot I will have to clean till I find the right one?!?

People in America celebrate Thanksgiving today. We don't. But still, that made me think about the things I'm thankful for...

I'm thankful for the privilege to be mother of the best child in the whole wild world.
I'm thankful for my wonderful family.
I'm thankful my Dad is doing much better.
I'm thankful for all my friends, specially those who like me the way I am and don't want me to change.
I'm thankful for all the free time I've been given to do things I like to do and also for the skill to do these things.
I'm thankful for a good job, which enables me a good living without special worries.
I'm thankful for most wonderful co-workers who make me laugh daily.
I'm thankful for the first snow this season... but mostly because it's not snowing any more.
I'm thankful for the Sainfeld and Only Fools And Horses series late at night - they help me fall asleep.
I'm thankful for a nice man out there who makes me feel special.
I'm thankful for my car's heating in these cold days. And for the scarf and warm gloves my grandmother made for me last year.
I'm thankful for Uhu super power gel glue, which doesn't stick to my fingers.
I'm thankful for the Internet - do I have to tell why?
I'm thankful for the sun above and moon and stars, for the wind and rain, rainbows and snow... for every little miracle of the nature.
I'm thankful for every day I go through, even if it is a bad one.
I'm thankful for the fact that I don't have to write everything I'm thankful for. This writing was not a good idea at all... there are too many things I could and should put on the list... perhaps I'll go on, but not today. That should be enough. Good night!

What a mess!

I was out having coffee with a friend earlier. Oh right, I don't drink coffee, it was tea for me. Anyway, when I came back home after 2 hours or so I stepped directly into the broken glass. Anteroom was full of it... full of broken glass and other stuff as well. Lin was sitting on the other side of the anteroom, staring at me with that innocent look in his eyes and I know he was telling me: "It wasn't me, I was sleeping in my cat bed all the time while you were gone... that happend all by itself!"

Our stupid cat was obviously being very bored. He's not really stupid, but sometimes he acts like he is :). Now, he has tones of cat toys and other things to play with, which are, as I see now, not good enough for His Majesty. He dragged some laundry from the bathroom (why did I buy him a cat bed if he can make it on his own??) and it seems he was playing with my shoes as well (should I buy him a pair or two??). But this wasn't enough, he had to jump on the chest and he pulled down the cloth that was on it with everything we had on there, including a glass cup for keeping all kind of things in. It's amazing how many shards one small glass cup produces! And it's amazing how they spread around all over the place! This was the second time in a week or two he made such a mess - I was cleaning even more broken glass at 4am the other day when he pushed the glass tray from the kitchen stove... I was so sleepy that it didn't even come to my mind to take some photos then. There was no laundry or shoes at that time anyway, so it was not so interesting at all...

I needed quite some time to clean this mess... I guess I'll vacuum clean everything again just in case there is some piece of glass left. Of course I checked the cat and his legs seem to be fine. And luckily at least the vase is still in one piece.

I just came home from our second workshop with the girls from "Skrinjica idej" forum. I guess I was not writing about our first meeting, which was held exactly one month ago... perhaps I was too busy with organizing photos and writing a report for it, I can't even remember. Or I was too busy with visiting my Dad at the hospital? Bye the way, he's out of the hospital already and is in the health resort now - he will stay there for another week and in December he will start with chemotherapy, as after the surgery the test of the removed tissue showed that the tumor was cancerous after all. But they removed it all and this chemotherapy is just in case if there was something left. Doctors said that if there were bigger parts of cancerous tissue they would have found them during examinations and that chemotherapy will "kill" smaller parts of cancer if there are any. So it's more like prevention. He will be fine, I know that!

Anyway, we had a great time today and this time the place where we have our meetings was even more crowded than last time. The room which we can use is in Nadgorica's fire station "hall" and is not really big but somehow few of us managed to prepare this place yesterday so it was big enough for all 40 girls and quite few kids as well. Few of the girls were working with the greetings cards for swap (2 times 20 greeting cards from 20 participants, meaning they had to distribute 800 greeting cards - I'm sure they will count and sort these greeting cards even in their dreams tonight!) and we exchanged necklaces and kid's fridge magnets for two other swaps. Then we were making greeting cards for charity. Well, I have to admit, I haven't made any! I was too busy with other things... like cutting the paper, chatting, organizing, taking photos... you know, things like that... playing the big boss :). Pizza was fantastic again as well as the home made pastries. And of course, greeting cards were all just beautiful.

Hope to see you again next month, girls!

These are my latest polymer clay beads. I used some old canes which I had in the fridge for quite some time and few of them are new. Actually I made them because I needed to make necklaces for the swap. They are not as nice as I would like them to be... though they didn't turn out so bad after all.

I made 6 necklaces which look alike though I used different beads as I wanted each one to be unique; and I got 6 beautiful necklaces in return. I'm really happy I was part of this swap. Thanks girls!! I enjoyed making my necklaces as well as I will enjoy wearing yours. We must do this again, it was fun!

Nina participated in a swap for children. They were making fridge magnets. Her "space alien snails" are made of polymer clay and she used some metallic powder and beads to decorate their shells. Like usually, she was too impatient and didn't take enough time to make them look better. But they are aliens, so I guess they must be weird :). They are cute anyway.

She got 9 or 10 magnets which were made by other kids, but I haven't seen them yet. I will wait for her to come back home tomorrow and we will put them to the refrigerator together.

That's it for today. I'm exhausted as it was long and busy day again. I need some rest... in a company of a good book most probably. Honestly, I would rather have different kind of company right now; but...

Good night!

I don't have enough time...

It's about time to start writing again, isn't it? Not that I was writing that much before, but I haven't added anything beside Photo Friday for last few weeks. I didn't have time to write. Which is not completely true but it is at least a rather good excuse. :) And most frequently used, I think.

I sleep about 6 hours per night and spend 10 hours to get ready for work, take Nina to school, go to work, be there, pick up Nina at school and come back home. Home works, playing, shopping, visiting friends or having guests here can take another 3 or 4 hours and then another hour for before bedtime ceremony. So I have approximately 3 hours left every day. I spend some of this time for creating things (too often my creativity mood at 9 or 10 pm is equal to zero!), reading or writing,... and what's left is mostly reserved for online chats. I know, I spend too much time online - but what the heck, I need some fun too!

Epilogue: I really need few extra hours per day. Does anyone know where can I buy them or rent them? :)

Photo Friday 5 - "Worn"

Photo Friday challenge: Worn

Photo was taken in Tunisa. We went to a trip to Matmata where we visited Berberian house (where people still live). These houses are carved in stone and are mostly underground - it's hard to detect them in desolated landscape. On the picture is their kitchen which has been used for generations. What a luxury, huh? :)
