Happy Easter!

All of you who celebrate - happy Easter! I've been creative this year and used marble colors for eggs. I followed all the instructions, and the eggs turned into a marbled glue that stuck to everything leaving bits and pieces of gluey colors everywhere. But they looked fantastic! :) Next year, I'm going back to classic boring colors.


Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year*

"The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.  The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month."
-  Henry Van Dyke

Today's rainy run gave me a little bit of faith that spring might come a little late, but it's on its way:

Sidewalk snow art

You gotta love his sidewalk snow cleaning method:


Spring... is not here...

Just in case you were wondering why I was so dormant with my photo blog - these are the bleak photos I could take day after day after day - btw, the "fog" is not fog, but yesterday's snow storm (the view is from one of the offices where I work on the outskirts):

Have I mentioned Croatia is Mediterranean country? Although Zagreb is on the continent and has continental climate, snow storms this strength and at this time of year are highly unusual.


Happy St. Patrick's day!

As all proper Irish-wannabes, we start celebrating St. Patrick's day at least a week before the 17th March. I went out to a party last night, filled with ceili dance, Irish music and happy people with  funny hats. St. Patrick also decided to show up, though I failed to take his photo. I managed to snap this photo of a Croatian group of people dancing ceili:

May you always have...
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.





Finally, I can bring out the gadgets, running sneakers, and enjoy the run in fresh air and the feeling of sunshine on my face. YAY! :)


The Sun is back!

As someone who studied astronomy, I realize my knowledge of the existence of the Sun shouldn't falter, however I was seriously beginning to lose faith it's still up there after weeks of snow, rain and fog. But now it's here! It's back! And I can finally enjoy runs around/near the lake Jarun...
