It’s been a hot week here and finally they opened on old playground near us which was closed for almost 9 months because of complete re-doing. I haven’t seen this place (or any other playground) so packed with running and yelling kids. It appeared that the generation of today’s kids still can jump, run and swing. I thought that it’s a long time forgotten skill ;)
This park is walking distance from us so each day before or after dinner when the weather cools down we walk down to the park where for an hour or so our NO. 1 is in a hog heaven!
That’s exactly what we did last Thursday. We went to the park. While my husband was running after NO. 1 I was watching them and freezing my butt off. The weather here is so crazy. Sometimes I hate it. It’s so hot during the day and when it comes to around sunset the temperature drops and it gets really cold, especially with the wind blowing. Ugh…
Watching all those kids (and adults) running in their shorts and short sleeve t-shirts I was getting even more cold. My husband always makes fun of me that being raised in such a cold country strangely I have no immunity to the cold.
by the way, Poland is not that cold. It snows there during the Winter and rains in Fall but other than that I would say it’s pretty nice. People always think that Poland is like Siberia but it’s not!
It still doesn’t change the fact that I hate the cold!
Next evening, at the park, as well. We went there a bit earlier so it hadn’t gotten cold yet, but at the end I got cold again and wanted to go home what wasn’t that easy with our NO. 1 enjoying all the fun things around. We had to bribe her with the vision of a yogurt and cheerios waiting for her at the house ;)
Two things she loves: swing and slide. Nothing else matters.
On Saturday, at the park, again.
This time we went there before noon and the weather was just gorgeous.
While No. 1 was running like crazy around the playground…
… enjoying the warm weather I lied down on the grass with NO 2.
Of course, the Big Sister always cares about the well-being of her Little Sis. She always says: “you ok, baby?” and when No. 2 is crying she asks: “whats wong, baby?” (yes, she skips the “r”). The cutest thing ever.
An hour of free time in my hands turned into this photo (and a few more, but this one I like the best).
Killing boredom during one of those long night feedings I played with textures and ended up with this:
I like it enough to post two almost the same pictures. I just couldn’t pick one. I like them both. With and without the texture.
Every time I go outside, to water the plants, to go to do the laundry, to check the water temperature in the swimming pool, to take a picture… SHE ALWAYS RUNS after me wanting to go, too! Running towards the door she yells at dad: “bye bye” and off she goes with me.
Yesterday I went almost all day without thinking about this project AT ALL. All the sudden at 10:30 pm (!!!) I remembered. Had no freaking idea what to do.
There is a long story behind this picture which was waiting for a different moment and more time to prepare myself for this shot. From the day I started this project I knew I want to recreate an image from Stephen King’s “the Shining” book’s cover (Polish edition). This cover wouldn’t let me fall asleep if the book’s cover wasn’t facing down on my desk after I read it before going to bed. I used be addicted to S. King’s and D.R. Koontz books when I was a teenager.
I hope I will approach this idea one more time as this one is not what I have in my head.
Enjoying my book. Funny and really entertaining. I know that there is a movie with Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson (I can’t stand this guy, by the way!!!) based on this book. I found out about this book reading Cesar Millan’s book “Be the pack leader” last month. I am in a mood for doggy books lately ;)
That’s for now, my friends. I will drag my tired self to the kitchen to make a new cup of green tea!
