My Simple Experiences
Garden experiences daily
I felt the heat from my opened bedroom window, and knew right away what the day would be like, hot and sweaty. After the many cold, and rainy days and now the heat has created this change.
A good day with a drive to Cavtat about fifteen minutes away from my place. I walked around the center to buy a pair of walking shoes, and I spoiled myself with a lovely summer dress. I liked the pretty flowers on the summer dress and I had to buy it.
I walked up a few stairs and felt tired, especially with the sun scorching right down on me, I do enjoy walking but not on such hot days. I had to go outside and feel the heat.
I managed to get home happy, and made lunch and checked up on my beautiful garden and saw many good improvements. And I keep everything around the garden clean and neat.
A dew days ago, I planted a few rows of cherry tomatoes, and hopefully, I would my new experiment will grow. I enjoy planting new herbs and like to try new ideas. A friend gave me a French Lavender plant. I recently planted it close to the mint plant. Another new idea for me and the plant has is growing well.
I have a Jasmine plant, and have not yet planted it in the official place. I don't think it will survive our harsh winter, and I am not sure what to do with it and the plant is still in a pot.
My roses have bloomed beautifully, and I like rose plants in different colors. I have red roses. The lemon tree planted almost fours ago has only in this season started to show some flowers. It is a surprise and yet we were going to get rid of it. I have changed my mind.
I prefer cooler and not too hot days but, the Mediterranean weather is another kind of climate which I have adjusted to. My now good life in Croatia has taught me how to live moderately and how to more appreciate what I have earned.
A new way of life and I finally got the way of how to live and be happy with my life. People are the same wherever you go in this world. The culture is what keeps us apart. The different behaviors too. I see my life with new discoveries and learning opportunities.I like to read and learn more about life with my own experiences.
Over the last few days I have been working out cross word puzzles. and have been improving each day. It is brain stimulating and I always like a challenge. My spare time is working in my lovely garden and reading.
Walking much later in the evening when the sun has almost disappeared from the corner of the sky. Our daily walks is most enjoyable when together. Also, we are looking out for snakes, and as it gets warmer snakes come out in the wild and around the area.
In trying to prevent any creepy crawlies from coming into our home, we put on netting on all the windows except for the door. It wasn't to easy to put on the netting on the door entrance with the inconvenience of the opening, and the closing of the door itself.
The opening and closing of the door would damage it. During the afternoon after lunch we call it ''siesta time'' a few hours of sleep is in order. After a two hour break we start off with a cup of coffee then a brisk walk around the countryside.
Thereafter, supper time, and maybe watch a movie before bed time again. The laid back lifestyle has got me living life to the fullest. I did not let myself go into this life, but have accepted a few changes and moved on to what I know is the best for me.
· Only time will tell of my ways of life.
I have grown to enjoy my time alone in the day and work toward the time when I am together with my family. I have a schedule but not a planned-schedule just a kind of routine, and not the same each day just that I have something to look forward to daily. I do believe life can be enjoyed in any part of the world.
Getting up early is a good choice but that also, depends on what time I go to bed at night. I make sure to have eight hours of sleep daily or more. If I am tired then I need more sleep.
I feel most tired during the summer days, and avoid going out during the day to prevent myself from feeling over tired. I was born in the month of June, and in South Africa, winter is in June and in Croatia it is the middle of summer.
Interesting about the seasons in the two different parts of the world and I am in the middle of it. I have grown many changes and challenges and have created my haven.
A life that not many can adapt to but with no choice, one can adjust to a different lifestyle given the time like I have and loving it. You never know when everything can change in your life, or how everything can change just to know where you are going to settle does play a huge part of your life.
People change all the time you grow and adapt to your surroundings in time and that is what you need. You need time and patience to see yourself accept others and your life in a foreign country.
The challenges allowed me to see life from a different perspective, and made that choice. You can choose to love life, or hate your life in the challenges you have had and have been through. Whichever, one you choose, your life will still be affected in some ways.
If you love what you do and always wanted a change, then your life will feel easy. And if the choice is made for you everything you see around you won't be liked or appreciated in the same way.
My daily garden achievements
If you sacrifice with your choice then what you see will surely be liked and appreciated. In time, you will show a liking toward that place, Something that trigger in my mind by surprise. Life as you know it is nothing but fun and laughter.
When the heart tells you so then you are free to do what you want with a smile. Life is never easy and I for once never thought I would be living in Croatia, but, here I am trying to go on with my life and doing a great job of it.
It is just my life in a foreign country. The language is easier for me and I have coped well with people and my peaceful environment. I knew when it was time for me to stop being frustrated and when it was time for me to move on with free spirit.
It happened this one day when I felt at ease with myself as it came about naturally, and that is when I found out for myself that I no longer need to be shy and since have grown more confident. A natural appearance or surprise makes you feel good.
