lost my muse?

Not that nothing happens in life – lots happens.

I just, I don’t know, can’t keep up?

Or, more precisely, have I caught the “what’s-the-point”-bug…?

No idea.

I know I’ll be back… Maybe sooner than later, I don’t know.

Writing this just in case someone would be passing by and wonder…



Niagara on the Lake

This was the second part of our Sunday’sย trip. Celebrating beautiful weather AND the Family Day-long weekend, we decided not to spend it at home, but make a trip. Loved every bit of it ๐Ÿ™‚

Niagara on the Lake surprised me with its history, cuteness and vivid colours (yes, even in the winter ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

img_7603– the sign was only warning not to be sitting at the “toes” of the seat – due to the danger of falling. But we wouldn’t dare to sit on those ๐Ÿ™‚

img_7602img_7604img_7606– we were just walking and taking it all in. Cuteness on every corner…

Leaving, we chose the wine-route, hoping to do some wine-sampling, but no luck, as most of the wineries close at 5pm…

…-well, with this cute one exception:


“The Hare Winery”! Are you kidding me? Of all wineries, this one was open till 6pm ๐Ÿ™‚ I seem to recall seeing some advertisement somewhere, not sure where exactly, but the winery just about opened, 1-2 years ago, beautiful brick building, and the hare… Well, for a bunny-lover like me, what more could I want? ๐Ÿ™‚


Well. I have a feeling we’ll be back!!! ๐Ÿ™‚


Bokeh —-> NaBloPoMo Day 13

Do you sometimes make recipes due to the accompanying photo?

I do not bake/cook something just because it has a nice picture. I know (experience ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) whatever I cook/bake does not want to look like on those pics, so why bother. Now, because of my diet, I look at nutritional side of the meal a lot. Or at least try to. And if I see the recipe calls for more than half a cup of fat (no matter what type) – unless it has some huge yield – I just skip it. See, I do not bake/cook for others only, but for the family. Therefore I chose stuff we all can enjoy eating without regrets ๐Ÿ˜‰

First I had to check, of course, what the heck is ‘bokeh’? ๐Ÿ™‚ Then it turns out to be a blur ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh. OK. Love it and use it ๐Ÿ˜€ Sometimes to extreme ๐Ÿ˜€
