5 min recipe: Easy Cous Cous salad

Oh yea, here we go. Summer and eating outside, plus laziness to cook something at 10 pm, when you come back home 🙂wpid-img_20150804_123236.jpg

I suppose you know this as well. And you don’t want to starve at work. Am I right? Continue reading

Corners Should be Circular

Corners. They’re scary, deadly and dangerous. For many reasons.

When we’re sad, we cry in the corner. Yes, it’s not a comfortable place to cry in, but we go there. It makes us to see everything from that place. An incoming danger or – god forbid – a someone, who would like to calm us down.

We hide in the corner, when we are threatened. It’s the last place in the room, where you can go to. But not a safe one. Once you’re there, you barely leave that space without an easy fight and few scratches. That’s connected with the expression ‘to be driven into a corner’. Your enemy knows, he’s a bigger monster and you are just scared dwarf in the corner. His big arms will hardly let you leave the corner, just because you want to. Corners are traps.

Even when we want to punish our own (or perhaps a foreign) children, we send them to shame. And where is usually the place? Yes! It’s a corner! I know, what exactly you think – ‘damn corners!’, right? ‘Why do we either need them?!’ And you feel like, you wanna protest in front of town hall with transparents about bad corners. That’s alright. Do it. But just in your mind.

There’s and old joke: “Do you know, why policemen live in a roundhouse?”

“Because they don’t have to worry about someone, who would like to assail them around the corner.”

Circular corners are a great idea. We should build them right now. For many reasons.

DIY – Cheap Christmas Garland

20141214_191626

Of course we visited IKEA before X-mas to get some gifts and.. ooops.. buy a new sofa :] There were many pretty decorations as always. I have seen these hard paper coasters, which costed $1 and bought them, because I thought, I could invent some decoration with them. And yes, it happened. I created a garland.20141214_193101(0)

It takes only twenty minutes to create it.
What you need: Coasters, 1,5 m long ribbon, punch pliers set (optional)

Process:

1. First align the coasters on the table to see how do you want them to hang on the ribbon. Because this set exactly contains 10 coasters and 6 of them are striped.

2. If you want to use punch pliers and go with the ribbon through the coaster, make holes just in the middle of the upper part. I used three different shapes and colors to make it look more interesting. Later I realized, it doesn’t matter, because when the ribbon covers it, you almost don’t see it ^^

3. Cut a ribbon and if you want to go through the eyelets, just simply put a part of ribbon together and twist.20141214_19043520141214_190511

4. Go with the twisted end through the eyelet and then cover the top with the loop you just created.20141214_190554 20141214_190846

5. Aaaand tighten 🙂

Tip: If you use a ribbon with a rough edge as I used, you can just make one loop around the upper part and you don’t even need to use any kind of eyelets or holders.20141214_193043

A Ladybug from Poland

Yesterday I was unpacking the goods. I opened the box and I saw an unexpected visit. A Ladybug from Poland. I haven’t heart to send her back for so long trip, also I wrote an e-mail to our kind supplier, I am sure she will like to live in our country and released her at the backyard. Have a happy life in the Czech Republic, lil ladybug from Poland 🙂

1st YEAR VEGAN

VEGAN

Yes yes.. Yesterday it was 1 year we started to be vegans. I can tell, that we started to eat, live and think like vegans. Vegans.. You can use any word. The meaning is still the same. For us.

What else happened during the year..

We haven’t been missing the taste of eggs and bacon as many of you probably think and tell me as a reason why you are not vegans. We didn’t even miss any proteins from meat, because we have got them from vegetables. We have got a beautiful dog, as you probably seen. Being vegan really changed our hearts and characters. We think about things different and we are happy as we are 🙂

Plus I have lost about 13 kilograms (about 28 pounds) during the year only by eating and noming and chewing 😀

Our dinner and lunch menu is more varied.

We discovered many new tastes. And we keep discovering 🙂

I haven’t been sick even once!

I walk around McDonald’s without a taste for a BigMac. Instead of that, I point my nose to the sky and say: “Phew!”

I am really more happy person. And I am sure it wasn’t only one year, but first. Of the next tens.

Hello, Friday!

Thank God, it’s Friday!” – that’s how my every friday morning starts. Usually I get up late, I don’t want to get a toe from my warm bed! This friday I feel extremely exhausted. This week I had a lot of stress because of my dental problems, too much work and other worries. Plus the weather acts as a pubescent teenager. – The most worse combination.

And when I have no plan for a weekend, my thoughts run to the I SHOULD brain center and for more fun they keep opening the CHAMBER OF CONSCIENCE door. THANK YOU!

There are some picks what I SHOULD do during the weekend: Continue reading
