Another fantastic weekend in South Estonia! Click on the image to view more pictures.
I think this bird is carrying poop. Do they do that, bring poop out of their nests like that? I should probably contact somebody who knows something about birds and ask, it would also be interesting to know which member of the tit family are they. They are far too small to be great tits, but the markings seem different than those of marsh or willow tits. A coal tit perhaps?
Sorry for abandoning you for such a lengthy time, again! Life has been hectic as always and the camera has been left in it’s camera bag for far too long.
Recently I had the crazy idea of trying to re-establish a flower garden at my grandfather’s house. This meme is more than accurate when it comes to me and gardening:
But I am very enthusiastic, so expect to see many pictures of half dug up plots and dead plants as I try to figure it out as I go along.
We even took the cat with us today, she enjoyed it immensely (and is sound asleep at home right now, with any luck our wake-up call will be later than 8 a.m. tomorrow). Or at least I hope she did.
I hope you are all enjoying Spring as much as I am (I even wrecked my knee while orienteering a few days ago – a clear sign that better weather is to come)!
When the farm was built, the river was probably the fastest and easiest connection route to the nearest city (Tartu). Nowadays, the place is nearly deserted. No-one wants to live in the middle of nowhere, no matter how beautiful the sights are.
P.s. Notice how people back then were clever enough to build their houses higher up, so that they wouldn’t be affected by flood waters?
It’s six o’clock (pm) here where I live. It has been snowing for at least three days and today is Christmas Day. Life is good.
I am very sorry, once again, for not posting more regularly. “Important” stuff just has a habit of getting in the way of doing fun things. But one day, hopefully soon, I will learn how to manage my time better.
I hope you have all had wonderful holidays, and that more good days are to come. Whether you celebrate Christmas or something else, or nothing at all, enjoy the days off, do the things you love and spend time with those who make you happy.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

The new school year began, and it was as if summer hadn’t happened at all – a blink of an eye and I was back in the dreaded classroom. This, together with moving to a new apartment; work commitments; crippling migraines; and all sorts of other things to take up one’s time, creates a situation, where the last post in this blog was nearly a month ago and I haven’t picked up the camera even once in the meantime. There’s still even a backlog of stuff from the summer I would like to share, but I simply haven’t had the time to organise any of it.
I have no idea when I will manage to get into some kind of a routine that will allow me to enjoy things that I actually like doing, so I won’t be making any promises about when you can expect me to begin updating this thing regularity again. All I wanted to say is that firstly, I’m sorry about the unexpected hiatus and secondly, I hope you will bear with me and not give up just yet! Keep checking back and I promise, one day soon, I will surprise you all with a ton (or a little less) of new posts! You can even drop a comment and let me know what would you especially like to see here?
Have a nice autumn and see you soon!
