Wow… I can’t believe it has been 3 years since I last have been here. The time passes so fast when life is busy.
Since I last posted I finished college, fell in love and had my heart broken and moved from Warsaw to Glasgow, Scotland. I fell in love again and couldn’t be happier.
I missed writing here, oh boy how I missed it! I can’t believe it took me so long. My life changed and I changed but my love for writing never will.
I will definitely show up here more often.
I missed you all!
Ania– my real self
I reached the moment that I’m not happy with my posts, if I have ever been happy about them. Those last months were a good lesson for my blogging.
I decided to take a break from posting for now and work on my dream blog. This one isn’t the one I’m proud of. And I should be proud of my blog, right?
I’m reading a lot of blogs daily and I finally know what kind of blog I want to have. It will be a little different and more similar to my favorite blogs, but it still will contain my thoughts and my silly writing. But there will be more too.
I’ll still be around reading posts, because I’m kind of addicted to WordPress.
I’ll be back between May and June. Probably closer to May than June.
I hope you will be waiting for new me…. Becuase I’ll be waiting to come back to you.
See you soon ♥
I can’t believe what I see outside a window. Ground is covered in snow and it’s snowing since few hours!
I don’t remember the last time that Easter was cold and white. Usually these few days were kinda warm, even if before or after weather became bad again. But Easter was always warm. Always.
Everyone is talking about global warming, but I don’t see it. I even heard today that spring may disappear soon totally. From winter we will go directly to summer.
And I hate it! Hate it, hate it, hate it!
I love spring. It’s my favorite season. It’s not cold anymore, but also not too hot. It’s lovely warm, birds start singing, flowers start blooming,sun is out most of the time, clouds are beautiful and days are longer.
It’s the best season. I hope it will come soon and that it’s just a temporary mistake of Mother Nature. We have 6 seasons in Poland and now what? We are going to have only 2? Summer and winter? It would totally suck!
Dear spring, please come here! We miss you!
I sometimes browse through recipes online to find something interesting to make by myself. I never stick to original recipe. I do everything in my own taste, add my own components. All I look at is how to cook certain products.
I found lately an idea for chicken soup with spinach, but components in my dinner were different.
What you need?
- chicken breast
- soy sauce
- chicken and beef broth cube
- chinese pasta
Proportions depend on personal taste. Some people prefer more intense taste with less chicken or spinach and some people may prefer less intense taste with larger amount of products.
How to cook it?
First prepare chicken breasts. Cut them into pieces and add oil and curry. Try not to add too much oil. I added 1 spoon of curry, but I could have added more so taste would be more intense. Mix it good and leave it for like 20-30 to marinate.
Next you can prepare spinach. I used like 100g, but of course you can add more. Clean it and cut off its ‘tail’ (sorry I have no idea how it’s called in English). Pour boiling water over it and leave it for around 2 minutes. Then put it to another vessel with cold water. Strain it and leave it for now. I also teared it into smaller pieces so it will be easier to eat.
Now it’s time for soup. Boil water and add 1 or 2 cubes of broth and few spoons of soy sauce. How much you add depends on how much soup you are preparing and if you prefer more or less intense taste. Let it boil for few minutes and add chicken. Boil it for 5 minutes and then add spinach. Let everything boil again for few minutes.
Voila! Your dinner is ready! I didn’t find chinese pasta in my town so I bought normal one. It was tasty anyway. Next time I’ll just add more curry and soy sauce.
Today I want to tell you about my way for more successful getting rid of cellulite.
I use a serum I wrote about before and I do exercises, but there is never too much help.
My father bought or got (I don’t really know) a massager. It has a red light to make massage more effective. While massaging also arms work so I can work on my muscles while fighting with orange skin.
Massages are widely known for its positive effects on skin and blood circulation to make our legs look nice. Not all of us have a partner to help us with it or we don’t have an opportunity and money to visit a masseur everyday so buying electric massager is a good way to enjoy the benefits of massage.
When I was cleaning my desk before Easter I found a book I was looking for- ‘The Pretend Wife’ by Bridget Asher.. I’ve bought it few years ago in local bookstore when I was looking for new book to read.
I’ve read it a bit, then put it somewhere and forgot about it. But I remember it was an interesting book. I can’t wait to read it again!
While beginning to write this post I was watching an interview in the morning show with polish-greek singer Eleni. In 1994, almost 20 years ago, she lost her only 17 years old daughter Aphrodite who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend who couldn’t stand their break up.
I was only 4 years old then, but I heard about it when I was big enough to understand it. I think all Poland knows about it.
I was listening to Eleni and I was really impressed by her. Her strenght and serenity is something we should learn from her. I can’t imagine myself to continue my life after losing my only child in such tragic circumstances. I think my life would finish with death of my baby.
She forgave the murderer. She did something most of us can’t imagine to do. I don’t think I could ever forgive person who take away my most precious gift from God. She couldn’t accept the death of her daughter, yet she forgave the killer.
Her parents taught her that we can’t live with negative emotions, that we have to think positive. We can’t repay evil for evil. She says that now she feels peace in her heart and thus it’s easier for her to carry her pain for the rest of her life.
I admire her and people like this. She found strenght to forgive the killer. Someone who killed her daughter. Her faith in God is incredible. She did something what saints do. She forgave the biggest sin.
Many people in such situations live with pain and bitterness for the rest of their lives. They blame themselves and keep thinking how they could change things and save their loved one from such tragic death. They keep living this day they lost their loved their husband, wife or child.
But there are people like Eleni who shows us the power of forgiveness. We can learn from such people and let God be our guide. Even though it’s hard for her to live and perform she keeps doing it. She knows her daughter is with her. In her heart.
