In the night…

In the night we see better…the plan to which we’ve been destined to.wpid-img_20140830_222524046.jpg

When the clouds disappear and the sky is lit by the roaring cars…wpid-img_20140830_205416201.jpg

….you find relief in a fiery glass.:)

A boy and a girl stand next to me. Him with a huge plate of hamburgers and fries and her with a glass of beer. No idea why she said she wasn’t hungry and why he decided to eat like a pig anyway…the contrast is there.

wpid-img_20140830_204628200.jpg

But the animals, the pigs are cute, so sorry for my unusual comparison.:)

Thinking about the code of good manners… You have it or not, that’s all.:)

He is reproaching her something. How annoying!

IMG_20140830_222730019

He’s so much “better”than her that he keeps on criticizing her!

IMG_20140830_222722778

One day he’ll regret of being stupid, but it’d be too late coz she’d have already left. IMG_20140830_215721920

I’m glad that I’m not at their table, for sure. 😉

Into the night, there’re so many stories that unfold….

In the night, the souls are restless…and so the packages of cigarettes left by a stranger at my feet…

Friendship’s temple!

When I was little I had an obssession for friendship! For that unbelievable bond between two people, who’d go for each other through storms and fire. And I looked for that extraordinary friendship for years. I searched for it like a lost wrecked ship for a piece of land.

10491145_10152160242488663_3484744648300041118_n

First friendship I had , it was around three years old, with my neighbour. Around seven years old, I understood that there were some differences between us, and that he liked being friend  with another friend of ours, a boy(Gosh, I hated him!). Step by step I started being excluded from their games. In order to keep a sort of appearance of friendship, I thought I had to prove myself as being as good as a boy could be. For that I started kicking and fighting with other boys(showing again that I was as good as a boy!), with the price of having some blood drips on the corner of my mouth… But that was not enough to keep him by my side…

(My scary pics…)

Around the age of 10, I attempted another friendship. That time with a girl form my school, in the town I had recently moved to. That proved a failure, as well.

In highschool, I gave the chance to another girl to become my friend. Same story! Everyone else was “better” than me(oh well!), I was too “strange” for her(oh well!). By the end of the highschool she had forgotten of me alltogether (oh well!).

10404064_10152160241603663_5454503841618595067_n

While still looking for that perfect friendship as in books and movies, I didn’t realize that I had always had my best friend by my side! And that was  you, my sister!:)

wpid-dsc_2616.jpg

The ideal friendship has ups and downs. It’s that person who knows you so well, even too well, whom you can trust(no stabbing in the back), whom you can say “I love you” without fearing you’ll get hurt, whom you’ll quarrel one evening and you’ll say mean words that you won’t mean and regret the next day(sharp tongue!)…

wpid-dsc_2618.jpg

But with all that, you’ll still stay friends and that FOREVER!:)

10351833_10152160242413663_3075394189571787316_n

You will wish that person the best. You won’t get envious. And that person won’t get jealous of you. And you’ll just be straightforward and sincere. And, and, and….

Many harmed, disappointed and decieved us, but that hasn’t done anything else than strengthening the basis of our temple.

10460113_10152160247293663_4979981817044804500_n

Many people will evolve around us, many will try to spoil our temple of friendship. But the core of our souls will travel around galexies in the same shape.

10414883_10152160242438663_12649497608263983_n

And I know that sometimes I’m just unbearable, but I also know that you wouldn’t change me for billions and not even in a thousand years time.

A rose and a song for you, my dear friend!:)

Addicted to you!

I thought I’d mislead you today from the beginning of the post…I’m addicted to scones!;)
I had a teacher who was making scones and she was bringing them to school. Let’s say that it was the best part of the lesson…;) Oh, and let’s not forget the tea, as she was making us some tea, as well. I tried the easiest recipe of scones.

Come along now with me for the scones’ adventure!(wow!!);)) Looking brave before actually cooking!

DSC_2521

Notice the big spot of “God knows what”(maybe milk or water) on my dress!( the scones’ fault!)

DSC_2522
Ingredients:

3 cups of flour
80g of butter
1 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
DSC_2523

Heat the oven to 425°F (220 Celsius). Put the flour, the salt and the sugar in a large bowl.  Mix them well. Then add the butter and rub in with your fingers until it becomes granulated, crumbled(it resembles the breadcrumbs)
Gradually add the milk and use a blunt knife to mix until the dough begins to come together. Knead gently to form the dough.
Flatten dough with palm of your hand until about 2cm thick. Use a 5cm round cutter or a drinking glass to cut out your scones(I used the knife). Arrange on the prepared baking tray 1cm apart.

Bake in the preheated oven for 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown and risen.

While waiting for the scones  to bake…

Getting concerned! Me: “They said in the recipe that I’d wait only 14 minutes!!!”

DSC_2541

Cruel reality, I’m BORED!!!!

DSC_2544

You can serve them warm or wait them to cool down.

Happy that it’s over!:)))

I needed some fresh air, so I decided to eat my scones outside! DSC_2567One cannot eat the scones without the appropriate tea!:)

Jam of blueberries and strawberry match the scones pretty well!

Enjoy and have a great Sunday!:)

The “How are you”

wpid-dsc_2663.jpg
We receive I don’t know how many “how are you” every day. Yet, I don’t know if this “automatism” has got any meaning anymore. Maybe we should just raise two fingers instead of “how are you”? We’d waste less energy?

wpid-dsc_2684.jpg

If at least people would really care about how you’re doing, really! Just a polite phrase to be told when meeting somebody that you haven’t met maybe for ages and of whom you maybe don’t even care, but you still behave that you do(wow,how cool!).

wpid-dsc_2651.jpg

Some are just curious of how you’re doing in order to compare your “how are you” with their own “how are you in life” (news of marriage, divorce, death, job, etc). It’s the answer that will give them the possibility to check where you’re now situated on their scale of 1 to 10. They’ll weigh you down on their own balance. Even their eyes will be measuring you from top to bottom(“did she put on weight?”, “she seems tired”).

wpid-dsc_2621.jpg

Hello hypocrisy! Hello lack of sincerity!:)

wpid-dsc_2655.jpg
Be as true to the others as you’d like them to be true to you!
wpid-dsc_2641.jpg

“How are you”, by the way? And I really mean it!:)

This Week’s Bargain!

DSC_2581

Coming back from the grocery store, I entered in a clothes shop and I had a crush on a skirt. Oh well, I didn’t have much money left on me from the groceries or my wallet with me(but I wanted to buy it!)…
DSC_2586
I went to the seller and asked her: “Hello, I’d really like to buy this skirt, but I only have this amount on me. Can you get me a discount on it?”. She answered she couldn’t(she was having her break time anyway).
So I headed myself towards another seller telling him the same story. His answer was: “Sure, I can give you the discount”.(yay!)

DSC_2588

I was able to buy it, even if my sister was convinced that I wouldn’t(“Go back home and get the money you need to buy it!”)…:)
DSC_2585
In conclusion, almost anything can be negociated in life, just bring your big smile and stay cool.

Go and have your best bargains of the week!
