Pic and a Word #150: Gr-attitude

After two months in my Slovenia I have only two words: thank you.

I know that this challenge is called Pic and a Word but as usually I’m exaggerating: many more words and pictures than one on how my gratitude feels and looks like. Words first.

Attitude = gratitude

My summer has been a fusion
like when my sister cooks:
just the right ingredients
added just in time.

It’s good to live this way:
with homes in many climates,
languages and landscapes,
every last one beautiful.

For all this I’m grateful:
for the beauty, the smiles,
the meals, the time,
the gifts and the love.

Not only is mobility
one of the meanings of life,
another truth is lurking
not entirely out of sight:

If you leave for a while
and then return on occasion,
it makes them happier to see you
on both sides of the equation.

There were too many occasions and people to mention them all, here is just a selection of twenty phases and faces of my summer.

Just as I finally decide which photos to post, my other uncle comes on a visit and I have a good night at the cards. This summer is never-ending!

Yet, tomorrow I return. Thank you, all, for a marvellous summer! And now, if you don’t mind, I’ll move back home where the summer goes to last a bit longer.

Please find specific thanks in the captions.

ADD-IT: As I was about to click “Publish”, mother brought me a little package that was hanging on the door. Another friend, not pictured below, left for me a home-made cream to ease my foot pain. How thoughtful! Thank you, Mateja! ❤

Let it be pics, words and a tune today. Thank you, Brina, for the wonderful PicniConcert! Here she is on another occasion:

  1. It looks and sounds as if you had a fabulous holiday. Been googling Slovenia. It seems like a beautiful area, maybe I could team it up with a trip across Northern Italy sometime. Summer always ends too soon.

    1. Yes, it does, but your half of the world will see it again soon. Thank you, Draco. If you were inspired by my photos to google some more, I take it as mission accomplished. 🙂 Slovenia is a peculiar country. It’s tiny but there are so many diverse spots to go to that you need at least a week to get the idea.


  2. Fabulous! I want to read all about that cake! Love the holding hands with the statue and also the bird gravestone topper. Also, you look SO happy and beautiful!

    1. Thank you, Joey! 🙂 The cake was not my invention, I’ll merely share the recipe and say in which points mine differed due to lack of proper stuff. 😀 It was still yummm. I’m back now and in awe at empty wasp nests everywhere and tall grass that grew in our yard for lack of bestia. 😀

  3. Looks like it has been a truly enjoyable summer. Joey is right, there’s a happiness/contentment that radiates in that last photo. That smile is genuine, it’s coming from inside, and it is quite contagious 😀

    1. Oh, thank you, Norm. 🙂 I’m glad all this comes across. Actually, on the morning of this photo I felt a painful pang in my back while at my laptop and after two pills could at least walk again. I think my smile is of gratitude for that. Luckily the pain didn’t return.

  4. Love the picture of you that is now your Gravatar. And the pictures that you took of your parents at the beginning of this post are also magnificent. Glad that you are mobile and that the pain has not returned.

    1. Thank you, Lisa! Knock on wood!! I’m back to Italy now and yesterday walked down to a new beach and there were only rocks and the sea was hard to reach and bestia was suffering and I wished to be on a boat. 🙂
