Picture me (im) perfectly in black and white, sepia, or outdoor in color…

9 am:

Since I got up I was planning to be done with today’s photos, and all chores around the house as soon as possible. I thought: After I’m done I want to do nothing for the rest of the day.

I mean I want to sit and read a book. Just finished one I thought I will never finish. Maybe because it’s hard to read something that’s about you, and you  think that the person who wrote this had been sitting in your closet for the last 10 years watching you very closely…. and now she is pointing out your darkest secrets!

Anyway I wish I could go for a nice long walk, but the weather is not very encouraging for this kind of activiti, and I feel I’m getting sick. Oh well, at least our daughter won’t be suffering alone.

Hill from Capturing Motherhood has started a new photo challenge – Picture me (im) perfectly. I really like that idea because I do that almost all the time… Maybe even much too often. I picture myself in this dark light of not being perfect in any part of my life… Sad… Kind of. I guess. But who is, goddamnit !?!?!

And the weather… It’s been only two rainy days, and I’m getting depressed already. It sucks!

I want to be left alone, and at the same time I know that I can’t demand it from anybody. I’ve got mine resposibilies around here and I can’t just stop doing it. It’s like if my husband stopped working because he feels kind of down, and he just would be laying in front of TV for days… It doesn’t work like that. I know, but I wish it was possible.


The next picture is for Black and White Wednesday from Lisa’s The Long Road To China .

Totally black and white feelings today. Quick peek outside the window this morning and I knew I won’t be in very good mood today.

12:20 pm

Actually the weather is not that bad as it looked this morning… but still… it’s raining.

My outdoor shot is an indoor strawberry. It’s an outdoor plant during the day, and indoor during the night.


I think I’m done with cleaning, doing loundry, folding loundry, feeding everybody (till dinner time). Meantime our Miss Sick Pants had cough attack, twice… Both lasted for about half an hour… She is so miserable… 😦

Actually wait…  she was miserable. Now she’s sitting in Di’s crate looking very comfy and content. At least she’s feeling better (until the next cough attack).


Litte One napping – time for mamma’s painkillers and one on one with book…

or maybe a short nap… 🙂

    1. Hey! I really like your idea, and your blog, too. Great pictures, and very cute kids of yours. Beautiful stories!


  2. Nicely done for all the memes!


  3. That picture through your blinds is fascinating. I love it! Our little neighbor is from Poland. He went there this summer for a month. We missed him! Sometimes he tries to teach us a few polish words. Hope you have a wonderful week with your baby and your camera : ) Love, Becky


  4. PS I like imperfect people the best! Who has time for all those flawless fakes out there? : ) Can’t stand them for one moment. Must check out that meme : )


    1. love your comment 🙂


  5. Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.

  6. Awesome photos! So pretty! xo


  7. Love your black and white photo! The lines are awesome!


  8. Found your blog through Hill’s. 🙂 I know the exact same feeling. Although you’re one step ahead of me, your house is already clean by the time you want a break. Thanks for sharing!


  9. Awww, here are hugs to you! I feel very imperfect as well. And sadly, I try not to compare myself materialistically to others but sometimes you can’t help it. It’s as though I hit my 30’s and suddenly I see that life is much shorter from here and there is less to be able to change for what I want and it depresses me. I love your pics. The strawberry plant is gorgeous. Big hugs to you! I hope your little anielka feels better soon & that you do as well. Heck, I hope you get some time to just be and to veg out doing nothing. I wish for that as well and it never ever ever happens.


    1. thank you for your comment!
      we are feeling a little better, but not much :-/
      It’s a first time our daughter is sick, and she is miserable… to bad than I’m sick too, because I’m exausted all the time and barely can take care of her… but I’m trying to do my best.
      … and you are right – I see it more and more often that my life is not full of happy adventures and never-ending story… I see it very clear, and it can depress me sometimes… oh well… life…

      warm hugs back to you


  10. Love the touch of blue in the sepia shot!


Don’t be shy and let me know what’s hiding in your head!
