things that make me happy

This mini snail I met on my way to work one morning.


This plaque, which I, after having passed it five times a week for the last six months, have finally noticed. It marks the house the Hungarian poet József Attila had once lived in.

The rainbow I saw from our balcony the other day.

These pressed flowers I found in a book. They must have been there for the past twenty years.

These fox earrings (I am slowly but irreversibly turning into a Crazy Cat Lady; a spinster of a certain age, with wild hair, weird clothes and age-inappropriate jewellery).

Autumn. It’s almost gone now so let these pictures stand for All Things Awesome That I Missed Out On This Year.

things that make me happy

1. The view from my garden door.


2. My new Pikolinos shoes.

3. Being on a sick leave till Monday, with lots of bed time, cups of coffee with coconut oil and awesome music. Lately I’m listening to a collection of original glass harmonica pieces, that are the second funniest music I’ve ever heard. The first are the Albrechtsberger’s concertos for Jew’s harp. I mean, classical concertos of three movements for Jew’s! Harp!, accompanied with a symphonic orchestra. How cool those times and their folks were, the second half of the eighteenth century.

4. Flowers on my table.


5. The cute panda backpack I bought for Móricka yesterday for the ridiculous price of 1,70 euros. I almost couldn’t resist the idea of getting an identical one for myself too, but, well, in our society there is an age limit of thirteen years for panda backpacks. Society’s burdens are hard ones.

6. The results of the very recent culinary success of mine!

7. Matryoshka earrings. Did I ever mention that I had a fairly Russophile and socialist upbringing? As a child I played with wooden matryoshkas and listened to the choir of the Red Army singing partisan songs. I still read the Russian alphabet fluently, even if I don’t speak the language anymore. Recommended movie for Western Europeans and Americans (or, actually, for everybody who was born on the other – outer – side of the iron curtain): Good Bye, Lenin! Just to get the feeling, you know.
