Climbing out of the trenches, and into the sun

Mali's latest post made my day:

It is so beautifully written.

Mali - it was lovely to meet you. I hope we will meet again, someday, somewhere...

I love your photo. And I love the text: "Climbing out of the trenches, and into the sun"

I love growing vegetables

If somebody told me when I was in my 20s or early 30s that one of my biggest hobby one day would be growing my own vegetables, I would laugh.

But it became by hobby few years ago and I just love it. 

I am attaching a photo of all the seeds I bought, some of them I've already planted.

Meet my Wolfie

We just met our future puppy. Isn't he cute? 
He is 5 weeks old and will be ours in 10 days.
Can't wait!

Perhaps they did have kids. Perhaps they didn't.

I had  a beautiful walk last weekend. I planned a fun afternoon and invited 4 kids for a walk. My sister-in-law hates the idea of sharing her two kids with me so I was not allowed to have them (just a note: the girls love me).  My cousin is happy to share her two kids, so I took for a walk only her two children.

It was lovely. We walked a lot. I made a small treasure hunt (cookies taste much better if they are earned). We visited a gallery. In the gallery we got a small flyer with old pictures. There was a newly wed couple, photo was taken aproximately 80 years ago.

Here is the conversation I had with almost six year old almost-niece.
Niece: "Klara, who are mamma and papa on the photo?"
Me: "Well, you should ask who a man and a woman on the photo are. Perhaps they never had kids."
Niece: "Yes, perhaps they didn't want to have kids."
Me: "Well, perhaps. But it is also possible that they really wanted to have kids, but they couldn't have them."

You should see the cute little face, trying to process all these info. I added. "Well, but most probably they did have kids. Most of the people do have kids."

And my almost-niece added: "Perhaps they did have kids. Perhaps they didn't."

I could have kissed her, the sweet little girl. For her, whatever path the couple had, it was OK.
