[561] The first in 2015. Перший у 2015.

This is the first entry in the new year. Apparently, there must be some list of the past year’s achievements or ambitious plans for the future, but now it seems to me that there is no sense for doing that. I started this year with the sense of self-confidence, inspiration and good company. I hope that all the future changes will be only for better.

I wish goodness and peace to all nice people in the world.

[557] The queen is dead, long live the money.

This story tells how a queen became a whore: Formula 1 S0chi GP.

Now I’ll better try to switch to American racing series.  At least until something will change for the better.

[555] Spooky fire demon

Few months ago my mom sent me a photo of the bonfire. I saw something strange on the picture. Looks like there is a head with burning eyes, and a hand. Creepy! Or maybe I have a very good imagination))

Can you see it?

[535] Have your ever seen a cat’s navel?

Smokey Joe was sleeping (in one of his favorite poses) and had no idea about the questions which swirled in my head.

Where is a cat’s navel?
What does it look like?
Why I haven’t seen it before? (Is it because I’m really unobservant or there is any secret?)

[529] Evening shower

“Hey, mom, I’m ready for the evening shower! However, can we do this without water?”

Yesterday I found Smokey sitting is the corner of the bath. He looked so cute and serious:) Ok, he is always cute)

[527] F1 (not a button))

For many years my dream was to find someone who is interested in Formula 1 as much as I am. Almost one year ago we have watched one of the Grand Prix together with my husband and he liked it! What’s more we are the fans of the same pilot. I’m so happy! Yuhoo) Oh, how I love my husband:) It is always great to have similar interests with the spouse.

Few days ago Alex came up with cool idea to watch old F1 races. We decided to start from the season 1985. History was never interesting for me, however the possibility to trace how my favorite type of car-racing has changed during almost 30 years seemed entertaining. Unfortunately, some of these changes were not for the better.

In 80’s Formula-1 was more passionate and unpredictable. There were exciting duels and risky overtaking, regulations were not so strict and cars were more diverse. F1 was noticeably dangerous. Of course it is good that new rules make the racing safer, however the process of piloting became more “robotic”. Everything depends on computers, which decrease the human factor. It seems that in 2035 we will see F1 cars with autopilots instead of drivers and teams:):(

I wonder, what had those pilots done if (by some magic) in 1985 they would have seen the 2014 race?

[525] Finn and social networks

Few weeks has passed since I decided to limit the use of the social network – vkontakte. I have registered there in 2008 and until this year it was one of my favorite and mostly visited sites. Unfortunately now it reminds me some kind of a freak show. May be I became older or people have changed. Anyway it began sicken and I quit. As it turned out, the idea was really good. I didn’t even realize how much time I have spent for pointless browsing numerous news and photos. There were hours which could be devoted to something more interesting and useful. No more active social networking!
My favorites now are Instagram and Twitter. When there is any interesting idea in my mind I can write a tweet or send a picture to Instagram. It doesn’t swallow me up for hours.
Regarding my vkontakte page, once in couple of days I log in there to send a birthday card and answer messages. No more time to lose) There are so much things I want to learn and to do.

[524] Preparing for the elections

Today we went with my father to the Ukrainian embassy. We need to be registered at the consulate in order to be able to vote on the president’s elections this month. I have never been voting before because it seemed meaningless to me. Now everything has changed. And it is so exciting! However I haven’t decided for whom to cast a vote… It should be someone decent, powerful and patriotic. Hmmm, hopefully there will be such a candidate.

We have also seen flowers near the embassy. People mourn for the Ukrainian patriots killed in Odessa… Glory to the heroes!

I hope that all those traitors and terrorists who kill our people will be severely punished.


The building behind me is our embassy. (Unfortunately, the flag is barely visible)

[523] Today’s floral story

Today I finally gave away some of my cacti. We don’t need twenty similar plants and also there is no enough space for them:) I was surprised that it took us only one day to find them a new home. I hope these cacti will bring a lot of joy to their new families:)

So there is a part of my small balcony garden:

Also today I’ve got an amazing Kalanchoe. More precisely, it is a flower pot with many small plants in it. It looks so bright and fresh! I’ve spent a lot of time today, watching it from different sides) Apart from its nice appearance Kalanchoe has healing effects such as bactericidal, hemostatic, wound healing, ect.
