Yesterday my sweet Veronika turned 6. She is a big girl, but it still feels like she’s not. I guess, it’s how she’s truly feeling, because a lot of people in some time of her life had said to her, that she is smaller than her big sister. (And I believe, that is something that shouldn’t be said to a child. A skill or ability should be emphasised, not the age). But actually yesterday there was a sparkle of a consciousness in her eyes as she realised how grown up she is! (And do you remember how grown up you felt in your 6th birthday?)
Veronika is holding a doll presented to her by her granny. She was very busy with her new presents this evening and didn’t want to take pictures. But nevertheless she (not so kindly) agreed to take some.
And here on the picture of all of us she made a grumpy face. I missed with the focus but hadn’t time to retake the shot as Veronika rushed away to her table with the presents. But isn’t it a funny shot to have from a birthday?
Her birthday has been a turning point to me for quite a time now, a turning point when I officially start waiting for a spring. And that means at least two months of expectation as the springs hardly comes in the middle of April here in Latvia. But despite of the tree limbs that are going to be nude for two more months, people here will start feeling the spring in the air pretty soon as there going to be much more sun and its rays will tickle our noses again.
And the sun that shined today proves that I’m right! Today it felt like a real spring! A tiny primrose pot that my husband presented me on Veronika’s birthday looked even more beautiful in the sun rays.
И доказательством тому сегодняшнее солнышко! Сегодня на улице было ощущение настоящей весны! И крохотная примула в горшочке, подаренная мне мужем в честь дня рождения дочки, в солнечных лучах смотрелась необычайно красиво.
So did my green towels. I love green! All of my kitchen towels are green. Whenever I see one in the store, I buy it.
After playing with the morning sunlight indoors (which happens exceptionally rarely here) we headed out to a stroll with Marge. And I was surprised that not only it looked warm, it also felt warm!
No sunshine without shadows. As I found it a year ago, light makes the most beautiful and picturesque shadows in spring!
And this one is funny — a street cat’s shadow is reaching to the domestic beautiful one.
Marge loves watching animals. And we stop and talk every time we see a bird or a cat. And there are a lot of cats on the streets of Riga.
