I am not a bit surprised that after yesterday's adventures I slept 12 hours and still felt tired. The temperature outside was rising quickly and the predictions were for about 90 degrees F during the day.
Great excuse to keep reading my book ("Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn, two thumbs up!) and cook something yummy.
I made baby ...
... a little because I've been here so many times, not only with Ania and Marek but also with summer camps when I was a school girl.
I took a bus to Ustron near by because it has a ski lift that takes you 995 meters above the sea level and from there you can see gorgeous Beskidy mountains.
Wednesday was a perfect day to go to the Czantoria Peak. in the middle of the week there were only a few people there and I ...
... turn because suddenly I was heading into the woods, and there was not a soul around. I felt uneasy and started imagining all the bad things that could happen to a lone girl on a small road, when I spotted a bus stop.
A bus came 10 minutes later and I safely made it to a pastry shop in the Old Town. The hazelnut torte wasn't what I had hoped but I relaxed for a bit and returned home. tired enough for a good night sleep.
... were almost completely out of obiad items. Unheard of for a well-run business!
We compromised: Marek got a whole meal, I chose a different salad to go with my mashed potatoes and cod fillet, and Ania took pasta salad to substitute for potatoes and sauerkraut. Thank goodness I still have some of my yummy tomato soup in the fridge :-)
As soon as Ania got home, she and Marek ...
... pictures painted on canvas.
Some of the cacti they have were amazing also. It takes them 5 years to grow as tall as you can see in the picture and then they cost $200. But what a cactus!
We celebrated Ania's Nameday with a nice supper at home and Ania's favorite bottle of wine.
For she truly is a jolly good fellow!
