It finally smells and looks like spring. And the allovertheplace poplar fluff is making sure everyone knows.
Today i decided that even if it meant eating alone, i would spend my lunch break – or at least part of it – in the nearby park, with a nice view to the lake. I have a monthly pass and recently acquired panorama picture taking, so this was going to be like catching two rabbits at once :)

Even if sometimes a bit annoying, the poplar fluff flying around is quite an interesting phenomenon, especially this year. It seems it is snowing poplar fluff, and the grass is full of cotton balls. Glasses are a must, and deep breaths – no matter how much one wants to fill their lungs with the fresh warm spring air – are not recommended.

Oh, and while i was at it, my grapefruit was begging for a selfie, so here it is:

And, as i
On some days, literally nothing happens. On days like today, when nothing extraordinary happens, but when all is great. Today, a close colleague of mine had a birthday, so there was candy and good mood. The other colleague came back from a mini-vacation, so again, stories to be shared and laughs to be laughed.
And i also got home earlier than usual, which feels kinda nice.
Awwh, it is still daylight and i am home. What an interesting feeling. And it can only mean one thing : summer is coming :D
Yet another great view, while visiting the home village of my other grandparents.
I have this panorama thing down to an art already :D
The happy/positive moments of Sunday were spending time with the extended family, and then just going out to explore the hills and valleys with my 2 cousins. What a view!
These pictures are actually taken from opposite hills. A busy couple of hours :D
Going into an abandoned hotel, some 20 stories up, through the abandoned debris and other stuff, and then climbing up to the roof on a rather steep and narrow ladder – all was totally worth it once we got there. And because a picture is worth more than 1.000 words, here is the equivalent of 4.000 words ( no panoramas this time :) )
I finally got a box for my computer-protection glasses. That is one thing off my constant to-do list :)
We have been close for more than 10 years now, and this year, for the first time in quite many, i was able to give her a live hug, a kiss and a birthday card !
