This is the feeling
I couldn't express,
but had the whole day

Today I miss
(at least)
old friends
and my 15-year-old self
(who didn't know
anything about depression yet).

This week has felt very long, probably because I've been worrying so much. My mum has been very sick and it has really scared me. But she's getting better and the Easter holiday is here, so today we are traveling to see some friends and my boyfriend's family. I forgot my camera home and am bummed about it but no can do - there won't be any pics taken by me until we get back on Saturday. I am planning to post some inspirational photos (taken by others) arranged by Easter-related colors, but we'll see what I have time for. See you soon!

This is what I keep
repeating in my head,
over and over again.

And things look
a bit better already.

Oh Spring

{by Gayana}

Yes, spring is here. Yesterday was officially the first day of spring. At least in my world. It was warm for the whole last week, so maybe the spring started to someone else for week ago already. But for me, yesterday was it. Here is why:
- I used my Converse All Stars for the first time
- It was so warm I went out without a jacket
- I saw the first Tussilago Farfaras
- It was so sunny and bright
- I had the first ice cream cone outside
- I blew lots of soap bubbles
- I fed ducks in the park
- I just had that very happy spring feeling for the whole day

Other reasons to be happy:
- Our home is starting to look like home more than a garage
- The living room is tidy and cozy
- I can soon start to decorate my crafting space
- Easter holiday (a four-day weekend) is coming, and I have nice plans for it
- I've got some nice crafting inspiration and ideas waiting to be put to action

Oh Joy

You are always trying to keep it real
I'm in love with how you feel

I don't see what anyone can see,
In anyone else

But you.

The Moldy Peaches - Anyone but you

This weekend I've been so happy.
Bursting with joy so much it's almost scary.

PS. Spring is finally here! Yay!

Life is a Rollercoaster, at least my life is

Today I had both ups and downs,
but I think when time passes
I'll remember the ups better
than the downs.

A Real Kitchen Would Be Nice, But...

In this apartment
we don't have a real kitchen,
just a small kitchenette.
But at least it's easy to watch
him cook when sitting in the
living room. Which is actually half-a-kitchen
nowadays, as the kitchenette
is too small for all the necessities.
For example, our former
kitchen table is nowadays
a living room table and
our freezer and microwave
locate in the living room as well.

I guess these are the sacrifices
people always say you have to make
when you'd like to live near the city center
in the most expensive city of the country.

I want to read




I haven't had any time for reading lately.
Only ten minutes here and there,
on a train or in bed just before I fall asleep.
When I was younger I used to spend whole days
just reading and reading.
Oh how I miss those days.

I have a pile of books I've started but
not read for more than ten pages or so.
I have several magazines I haven't even opened.
This weekend I'm planning to do some
serious reading, I tell you.
That staying in bed for the whole day
and reading until my eyes are too tired
- kind of reading.
Like in the good old days.

I hope you have a nice weekend as well.
What are you reading at the moment?

Spring Colours Week: White

Well, I had fun with colours this week.
Spring Colours Week is at it's end now,
but I'm already waiting for the summer week.
Until then, I have to start to photograph more.

Spring Colours Week: Yellow

Spring Colours Week: Greens

For a moment, let's pretend it's still Monday.

Why? Because it didn't occur to me until this morning that Poppytalk's Spring Colours Week was here already, and I kinda missed the first day. But because I've been wanting to take part for ages now, I decided not to care about this little detail. I'll post my greens (Monday's color) now, and my yellows (Tuesday's color) this evening. It isn't that serious, right?

To find out more info, head here and to see amazingly colorful photos from other participants, click here.

PS. These photos aren't new, so you might have seen them already. But most of you haven't, and I hope those of you who have don't mind the recycling. It was long ago, right...

A Gray Day


It was gray and foggy and rainy
for the whole weekend,
and Monday didn't bring any difference.

I'm trying to keep the gloominess away
by thinking of cherry blossoms and tea parties
and bunnies and walking barefoot on warm grass.

I also try to adopt this way of thinking
to like gray more:
