I had to reblog this,cause it’s so funny! Love the little hands of the monkey!
But not like us..by car.. but maybe on a bicycle. The lake is all rounded by roads for cycling,and the nature is really beautiful, people are okay, the foooooood is more than great..and so on!
Balaton (the lake) has about 77 km length, and has an average depth of 3-4 meters,and between 3 and 14 km width.
Where I live..is really under 1 m deep 🙂 ..I mean it’s perfect for me 🙂 I can’t swim, so for me 1 m is enough.
So, weather was okay-as in..not 38 Celsius! but about 24-26 so quite acceptable!
here is a map of the lake-so you have an idea, and the cycling trips that anybody can do!
if you press the photo you will see the larger version.
We only stopped few times, but next time we will plan the trip. This was just the Sunday family trip that we do wherever we are.
My house is still in chaos, and the works are a little bit behind from various reasons.. I still can’t find anything in the house! and so is my hubby 🙂 the dust is greater than 5 cm-no matter how many times I wipe it..there is still enough to lean on things in 1 day again.
Like that’s not enough ..we have some house ‘pets’… like snakes.. and mice… still haven’t seen rats..but they are out there somewhere..
I am very optimistic though! -it’s not like I’m in Africa..being afraid of bigger ‘pets’-..like lions..or hyenas.. or other such pets!
I have many subjects for You to post, but time..is not on my side. Some food..the construction..some sport stuff ..and many others..
[ I have a really bad news though.. for me..not for You of course..
….I gained 3-4 kilos back :((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((
and yes..it’s the end of the world!!!!
Of course, I have no excuse other than eating like a cow… and not following my own rules..and eating lots of sweeeeeeeeeets..I have this …urge for chocolates..and unhealthy food.. and no! I’m not pregnant 😦 that would have been an excuse..
well.. my fault… and my struggle.. 😦 ]
that being said…I will be on diet again.. sooooon 🙂
and here are a few photos of yesterday.
my sweet baby boy- he says these days – “mama I am big now,don’t call me baby” 🙂 how big can you be at 2 and a half ???!!! well…big enough to say this to your mother!:)
and the beautiful sunset we had at the end of the trip, yesterday…
(mentioning that nothing is changed to the photo,no photoshop,or whatsoever, this is the actual color of the sky…was incredible! )
Wishing all of YOU a great week!!!
I promised some photos with the “war” (construction) from our yard..but I think I will wait a bit more, till the change is more visible 🙂 hope you don’t mind!
But as we have some beautiful green fields around our house I made some photos, as we have our walk every day around our house. Soon I will repair my bicycle and will make longer walks with my family! yay!
some neighbor has a full yard of x-mas trees 🙂
not quite the everglades 🙂
Wishing all of You a Great Sunday!
( and Monday to Australian friends! )
…because we already were “killed” by their bites.
We had some guests the other week here and one of them was bitten by a bee, and another one by a giant wasp- a European hornet, very big and hard to kill.. I was too bitten by a bee, and as mosquito are everywhere… you can imagine.
So I bought a kind of a killer cup. This is for outside usually, we actually don’t have problems in the house, only when we stayed outside on the terrace.
The market is full of many such products..some cheap some quite expensive.. and in the end it’s the same trap, a cup in which you pour a substance that attracts insects and it’s impossible for them to get out..
I chose a cheap one – hoping it will work, I didn’t want to pay 10 or 15 euros for a plastic non fashionable cup!! I might as well be the killer and hunt those insects down for free 🙂 so, I bought this at … I think 4 euros. Of course after you see the design of the trap, I think you can also make it at home and put some substance there.. but I wanted to try this.
it’s a local brand, no big fuss. (and I am proud of buying local )
Inside there are 3 small bags with active substance.
after you put it in the cup you just add some water,there is a limit draw on the cup so you will know.
and tadaaaaa! ready to kill!
I put it near a light, up outside the house.
And OHHHHHH!!!!! First customers!!!! It took maybe 20 min, because it was day and not soo hot..
Third day… Fulllllllll of customers…
I would say it works! really well!
# I am quite the mercy one, and I like to see and know insects, but I have no choice with these ones as I am kind of afraid with my baby boy being bitten..
I apologize to the ones who protect and like these insects. #
Of course a better way and much more expensive- but for the long term, is a pest control, and we will surely do that in autumn or so..
But for someone who is on holidays at Balaton Lake … this would be a great option. I recommend it.
We’re still going strong with constructions in our yard..and it looks like war outside, but 3 workers did miracles in 6 days only. I’ll prepare a post for tomorrow to show you the quick change.
Wishing all of You a Great Weekend!
No my dear friends,I didn’t quite disappear from the face of the earth.. but I had some hellish couple of weeks…
I don’t want to bore you with details..but we had serious problems with the transporting company,that brought our things to our new home.. -they were not quite the serious ones, in fact they thought we won’t fight back if we are a small family with a baby..
Things got smooth once we showed our big teeth, and once they understood we will bite their ass if we have to.. and finally with lots of help from my brother some friends and 2 very reliable young boys, we managed to pack, unpack and finally move into our new Home base!
After 5 tons of a truck and over 5000 kilometers of roads back and forth, and after about 5 years (for me)…..
I think I am finally FREE
Next weeks are all about making our house comfortable, and we already started again with the constructions, luckily these people work sooo fast! I am trying my new/old hobby – gardening…and so on..
Of course our house looks like it’s in the middle of a war! I can’t really find anything I need.. but I CAN manage! and I am sooo Happy ..finally…
Eddie likes how the future looks!!!
So, with patience, life goes back on track, I come back to blogging :), Olympics are starting, Summer is in … what on earth could I wish for now?!
A big Thank you to all YOU-my dear friends!
Wishing You a great week ahead!
