Summer holidays at North Euboea

Panorama shot of my favorite beach

At last I found some time to write a post about a part of my summer vacations! It’s fall already but everyone enjoys some summer spirit even if summer has gone, right?
So, here I present you my time at north Euboea during August! We went by car, passing through Euboea which was magical if you are a strong driver! The first day of our trip was not so summery because the weather was just the opposite! Rain and cold but on the top of the mountain we stopped for a hot cheese-bread that calmed us for ever!! Then as you can see on the photos above we made a stop somewhere to rest and we found out a small river there! It was just after the rain and the scenery was beautiful!

When we arrived at G’s village we were welcomed by his grandmother and the cats! We ate some figs with cheese and the proper summer had just started!!
We stayed for a few days only but we had a great time. Swimming all day at paradise beaches, eating like kings, playing with the dapper cats that required quite patience I must say and relaxing a lot……

This cutie was so low-voiced that was like been in silent mode

As you can see the beaches there are superb!! Just like I want them: quiet and calm, less people the best, with pebbles, clear blue waters and fishes to explore on the inside! One day the sea had a lot of jellyfishes (not harmful though) that scared me but G and I made a silly song about them so we had fun eventually!

As we were staying all day at the beach we were present during the sunset. Which was magical. I loved the serenity of that time on that beach!

I must say that I’d taken my new camera for the first time so I tried a lot (!) of sunset shots!! It was hard of choosing just some of them!

Returning from the beach that day as the sky was magnificent-obviously-we saw an owl that stopped just in front of our car!! I was so excited!!!

Weekend & come back!

flowers weekend

Hello hello!!! I’m here again and trying to take advantage of that opportunity and write something! Almost one month ago, while I was cool and calm, with normal work to do – I even had started to feel insecure about future projects(and income of course…) a huge&urgent project came along! And as a result, as I always do, I fell in that deep whole of creativity and passion of completing the project and accomplishing all the tasks…for 2 weeks I was in a parallel universe, giving the 200% of myself, forgetting all the rest of the life! Of course I was dead after that, not just tired…I managed to do 1 month’s work in 2 weeks, but thankfully it was very satisfying, everything went well and I was quite proud after all 🙂

So this is the first weekend I have free time, the weather is hmm..nice and I’m planning walks with friends, I’m just thrilled!! Of course, architecture couldn’t miss from my weekend, as a small arch festival is happening in Athens by friends this weekend, and I’ll join but it will be fun!

What are your plans for the weekend?
I hope you’ll have fun anyway!
xoxo

PS. As I was writing these my phone rang and an arch chore came up but it’s gonna be short and I’ll try to keep the spirit as before..!

Weekend!

deckchairHello everyone! How is your weekend so far? Are you enjoying the sun somewhere calm or spending all day in bed? All I would like to do is spent some peaceful time in an environment like that lying in such a super cute deck chair and don’t think about anything stressful! Petting my cat with one hand and reading a book with the other… Have a nice Sunday!

Photo source: Stay for lunch. See the rest of them, they are mind travelling!

Weekend!

woods relaxingGood morning, weekend is here! What are your plans for these days? I don’t know for myself yet, I’m going to work for sure but some relaxing is in my thoughts too… The weather these days is really crazy, one moment is hot, shinny etc and 5 minutes later the sky is fully cloudy and you need to put a coat on! And after 5 minutes again the sun is shinning..but 5 minutes after that it may rain! Totally crazy… In my unluckiness I could say I’m lucky I have work to do and I’m not in vacations. (Lie…!) The only truth is I’m daydreaming of being in the situation of the picture above! Relaxing in a hammock somewhere very far from civilization! Happy weekend my friends, with all the luck and misfortune of it!

And the DIY project of the weekend is very simple because I’m in the mood for easy stuff today. Decorate your garden, balcony or whatever you have with these cute and discreet faceted clay tealight holders! See the tutorial here.tealight holder diy

Weekend!

cat readingGoodmorning! At last weekend has come and we’ll rest a little. It was a difficult week with a lot of work and I have all the tiredeness stacked on me, waiting to be left free!  I’m working also today but I hope it won’t last long. Unfortunately I feel kind of blue today, it’s a gloomy day…it’s a stay-in-bed-hugging-the-cat kind of day! If only I had my cat here! A big wish for all of us, let’s have a nice weekend, relaxing, joyfull and sunny!

Weekend!

sunny readingThe truth is today I’m going to be working all day long but this is what I will be dreaming of doing! I hope you all will be more in a situation like the photo! However I’m not complaining, what I do these days is very interesting so it keeps me focused! So, have a sunny, relaxed weekend and get some sun for me also!

DIY project of weekend: Decorative clay bells! Aren’t they cute? See the how to here.clay bells

Weekend!

campingAnother weekend is here! Great opportunity for relaxing, go for a small trip and reload our batteries, maybe some thinking about our new year resolutions etc… The truth is I miss spending some time in nature, maybe I should do something about it. Anyway, I hope we all have a great weekend, as we please!

And if you want to spend your time creatively I have a DIY project for you: a button lunch bag for work! See it here. If you make it send me photos to be inspired me for making mine also!

Happy weekend!xoxo
