Magic on the Sky









Am lipsit o saptamana, dar motivat. Si motivatia s-a concretizat in doua evenimente frumoase care au marcat inceputul sezonului de plimbare/activitate/viata in natura/distractie. Primul a fost in judetul Buzau. la centrul  Izvorul Sperantei 
unde am participat cu ateliere in cadrul unui proiect Erasmus cu elevi din Scotia, iar al doilea a fost
Magia Baloanelor cu aer cald
in judetul Iasi, unde am tinut atelierul de tir cu arcul.
Pozele sunt de la al doilea festival, care ne-a lasat o impresie foarte placuta. Subiectul indeit, baloanele cu aer cald, au fost elementul care ne-a atras sa participam si bine am facut. Am vazut pentru prima data uriasele "meduze" zburatoare si la anul o sa am grija sa fac revervare ca sa putem si zbura intr-unul, pentru ca dupa cum au marturisit cei care au avut parte de experienta, este minunat!
Tot aici am avut ocazia sa testam si noua masina/casa, de care am prins drag dupa prima noapte dormita in ea.
Acum ne-am intors acasa, obositi, dar foarte incantati si ne-am apucat de pregatiri pentru urmatorul eveniment.Ne-am bucurat sa gasim margaretele inflorite in livada, gradina care desi anul acesta a fost mai neglijata, ne-a intampinat cu salata verde, rucola, chives, menta, salvie, roinita, urzici, ceapa verde, toate numai bune pentru salate de sezon, pe care le-am asezonat cu otet infuzat cu flori de liliac.
Bine ai venit vara!

EN: We were away for one week and the reason were two events on which we attended: One of them was in Buzau county, at
Foutain of Hope
where we held workshops for students visiting from Scotland.
The other one was near Iasi:
Hot Air Ballons Festival
where we participated with the archery workshop.
The photos are from the second event, that we really enjoyed. It was the first time we saw closely these giant "medusa" and we would like to fly in one of them next year, because those who did it had a great and unique experience.
It was also the first time we slept in our new van and we fell in love with these house on wheels.
Now we're back home , tired but pleased and we are preparing for the next event.
We were happy to find the daisies in flower and the garden whih although this year was a little neglected, welcomed us with lettuce, rucola, chives, mint, melissa, nettles, green onions, sage, all of them perfect for salads that we seasoned with lilac flowers infused vinegar.
Welcome summer!

Dream


Ne pregatim cu spor si voie buna pentru un festival deosebit, ceva diferit ce de cele la care am mai fost si pe care il asteptam cu nerabdare:
Magia baloanelor cu aer cald
Asa ca saptamana trecuta light-motivul au fost baloanele cu aer cald, de la cele clasice, la cele moderne si la unele imaginate si posibile poate intr-o alta realitate:)

We are preparing for a special festival, something a little diffrent than the ones we've attended in the past:
Hot air balloons festivals
So, last week was all about hot air balloons, classical ones, modern ones and imaginary dream land ones:)

ReBorn






Dupa ce iarna ne-a mai pacalit putin (nu cu putina zapada, pentru ca a nins intr-o zi mai mult decat in toata perioada "regulamentara"), in sfarsit soarele si-a facut treaba si livada a innebunit pur si simplu: ciubotica-cucului, papadii, merii, perii, ciresii, corcodusii, ne bucura, iar liliacul se pregateste si el (in zona noastra plantele revin la viata cu vreo 3 saptamani mai tarziu decat in alte parti).Recunosc ca m-am speriat putin cand in 3 dimineti la rand m-am trezit cu privelistea fulgilor desi de nea si chiar m-am amuzat de "incalzirea globala". Am avut timp sa meditez putin la vremurile cand eram atat de dependenti de vreme si ploaia, zapada, furtuna erau motiv de stat inauntru. Acum pare ca fortam natura si nu ne oprim orice-ar fi. E bine sa fim ocupati, dar cred ca e bine si sa ne linistim si eu una, sincer, nu inteleg cum progresul, in loc sa ne ajute sa reducem orele muncite, ne aduce ore suplimentare. Poate ca eu sunt o inadaptata lenesa, dar in civilizatia de acum ma simt destul de stinghera.

EN: After winter tricked us a little more (with lots of snow, actually), finally the sun is doing its job and our orchard has simply gone crazy: primulas, dandelions, the apple trees, the pears, the cherry trees give us joy and the lilac tree is also preparing to bloom. I admint it, I got a little scared when for 3 mornings in a row I woke up with the snow flakes dancing and I was also amused by the "global warming". I had time to meditate at those times when people where weather dependent and the rain, storms or snow kept them indoors. Now it seems that we are pushing nature and we don't want to stop no matter what. It's good to keep busy, but I believe sometimes is good to chill and I, to be honest, don't understand how progress, instead of reducing labor and the burden, brought us extra working hours. Maybe I am more lazy, but in this kind of civilization I feel a little out of place.
