EN: Time goes by (or we feel it this way) and every day, if we pay attention, can be a fun adventure. This is what we learn watching baby Carol explore the world and each new place makes him happy, be it a chair under which he hides and then coming out is a great deal, be it a closet, a taste, a person he knows and haven't seen since yesterday...for him it is exciting and fun.
EN: Us, grownups, we act like we are thousands of years old and seen and done everything. And life becomes tasteless and we live like robots. I ;ike to go to the supermarket and each time try something new. To be honest, I like this aspect of globalization and capitalism: I can taste foods, exotic fruits and vegetables, drinks from the other side of the world and enjoy other cultures. This time we found Nori algae on discount and cooked suhi. We'll definitley try it again, it's delicious:)
Asa ca de azi, sa profitam si de micile momente, nu sa asteptam doar intamplari marete si extraordinare care sa ne uimeasca si sa ne bucure!
EN: As a curiosity, I found out from the radio that today is Toilet Day:) And meditating a little at this necessary and useful place, I realised it can also be a pause moment. Perfect place to read something light, like this compendium of old newspaper and magazine articles.
So, starting from today, let us enjoy the little moments too and not only wait for the great and extraordinary adventures to make us happy and amazed!

Probabil ca n-am fi avut altfel ocazia sa ajungem pe unul dintre cele mai frumoase meleaguri pe care le-am vizitat: Valea Hartibaciului.
EN: A few days ago we were invited by the Job in Sibiu organization to help them with one of their projects: the school in Zlagna village, where they built a playground for the poor children who study there.
It was a great opportunity for us to travel to one of the most beautiful areas we've been to: the Hartibaciu river Valley.
EN: The lovely autumn sun blessed our journey and we got the chance to view wonderful landscapes: old fortified churches hidden between hills covered in colored forests and the tall snowy mountains in the background. Dreamy!
EN: At school, our mission was to paint the entrance walls, so we chose to transform the day, the night and the four seasons into some fantastic fairies. The children watched the whole process and were delighted.

EN: I didn't suspect and wasn't expecting that this times of fresh motherhood would be so filled with awarness. And even if every day for me has been a struggle, between agony and extazy, with no exageration, I slowly learn to enjoy it and receive each day as a necessary lesson, an investment in my peaceful future. And it's not just learning this by heart, like a lesson from a book, but it's about understanding that everything flows. Today, after nights of tiredness, crying, darkness, I see that I'm fine; that fizically I am ok and I can handle it, although the shock was a great one for me who I was accustomed with a confortable life; that patience is not just a word, but a continuess practice, till the very end; that after all we choose to take photos of the pleasant moments, so those are the times that should fill our memory.

Anul acesta a fost mai secetos, dar prima plimbare ne-a adus roade bune: am gasit tot soiul de bureti comestibili si ne-am umplut plamanii cu aerul proaspat.
EN: One of the best moments of tthe year is the mushroom season, which brings joy every autumn. I love the forest, especially after the rain, when the smell of dried leaves, dirt and branches lingers in the air.
This year has been quite draughty, but we still found many types of edible mushrooms and the first autumn walk was such a pleasure.
EN: What we didn't cook to eat right away, we canned so we can enjoy the taste of the forest in winter too.
