Hi!

This year I am spending holidays at home. 

I will paint the windows and help with home repairs. But not just work! Last Saturday I was with my husband on a trip to Pieniny.

The weather we had was great. We sailed a raft on the river Dunajec. Amazing views! Also, we visited the castle in Niedzica.

Two weeks ago we were in Wrocław. We visited the ZOO and the city square and we watched Panarama Racławicka and the dancing fountains.

I'm pleased with these trips. What do you plan for this summer vacation?

Greetings,

Basia

Dear Mum

I am on a holiday in Croatia. I have a great weather. At the beginning of the week it was warm and sunny. My friends and I were on the beach. We sunbathed and swam in the sea. We drank a lot of water and we ate ice - cream, which was delicious. We sailed by boat on the fish - picnic. Later we had a bad weather, it was rainy and windy. We didn't go to the beach and didn't go for a trip. We had fun in the pub but we drank too much beer. Since yesterday we have had a nice weather again.

I am coming back next week.

Best wishes,

Mariola

Crumbs from the master’s table

Yesterday my friends visited me. The older we get, the sooner during the day we meet.

I invited them for the green breakfast.

The meeting took place on the green grass, and of course on a green tablecloth.

I served plaited sausages in puff pastry coloured with green spinach. Unfortunately, at the time of baking
they went black, but I saved the green color with parsley.

As extra, I did the delicious green salad with: cucumber, green peppers, lettuce, chives and the Knorr sauce. For the dessert I baked green cake and I served it with coffee with egg ligueur.

Fruits did not maintained the green tone, because they were from my garden; apples were yellow-red, grapes were dark blue and raspberries were red.

We were talking about children and it turned out that my granddaughter and my friend’s grandson go to the same high school and they are in the same class.

My friends really enjoyed the green party and the meeting passed in a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere.

I am sending the picture under the title „Okruchy z pańskiego stołu” in enclosure.

Postcard from yesterday

I am now after the hospital operation and I was removing stitches yesterday. The exertion was painless, but still unpleasant, although the doctor was very kind and gentle. After the hospital visit I went to my oldest grand-daughter Maja, who was helping me with the English homework. In the afternoon came grandmother Mery with her blueberries and we did dumplings together. After her daughter's and son's in law return from work we met to drink coffee and enjoyed each other's company.

Yesterday...

Yesterday I was with my friend on a trip in the mountains to hike in the forest and to pick blueberries. We had a good weather, it was very sunny and warm. We had beautiful views at the mountains. 

I returned home to do jam and liquer with blueberries.

Flowers of the Steppe

"Flowers of the steppe" is a novel and a biography: a diary from an exile. The book is about love that connects families that are like one organism. In the title itself the book confronts stereotypes. The novel brings up christian values in relation to survival, such as mercy and sympathy. It is about perserverance in realization in order to determine objectives. Finally, the book empathically expresses gratitude: we can go further as a hero thanks to good people and their advice on our road.

I recommend to read this book.

Another post card from a holiday

Dear friends,

We are having a great time during our holidays sailing the Mazurian lakes. We have a lovely weather. It is warm and sunny. Sometimes it gets even too hot. Yesterday we sailed the Sapina river. We sailed into her from Święcajty lake. This river is very marvelous, especially the segment connecting the Stręgiel lake with Pozezdrze lake. The shores are wooded and all vegetation is reflected in the mirror of water, creating a fabolous space. Mazurian wealth is also fish. We eat a lot of fish here that we buy at fish farms. The assortment of fresh fish is very rich and the prices are low. 

Hope you have a great time too!

Best wishes,

Post card from a holiday

Hello!

We were on a holiday in Italy in Sorrento. We lived in a hotel by the sea. We had a beautiful weather. It was very hot and sunny. We sunbathed on the beach and we swam in the Tyrrhenian sea. We went for a trip by bus to Pompeii. Pompeii was an ancient city destroyed by volcano Vesuvius. We visited also Rome and Assisi. We made a lot of photos. It was a very interesting holiday.

Best wishes and see you soon.

Mail from Spain

My dear friends

Best wishes from Spain. I am on a holiday in Barcelona. Barcelona is the capital of Katalonia. I have a lovely weather. Sometimes it is very hot. Yesterday I was on Costa Brava. I saw beautiful views of the sea there. Then I was on the Bodega where I drank wine and I ate local food. Tomorrow I will go to Montsserrat where is a monastery. This is a place of religious cult. I am back in a week. See you later on our English classes.

My favourite novel

My favourite novel is "W Pustyni i w Puszczy" ("In Desert and Wilderness") by Henryk Sienkiewicz. The Polish author describes children: a Polish boy Staś (14 years old) and an English girl Nel (8 years old). Children of the engineers who build the Suez Canal are kidnapped for ransom. The book is about their journey through a desert in Sudan and their hard travel to their fathers. It is a thriller with some terrible scenes but also an interesting adventure story. In my opinion this book is very engaging. I recommend this book very much.

I recommend a book "How to design a garden of dreams"

My favourite book is "How to design a garden of dreams" By Danuta Młoźniak. Danuta Młoźniak is a polish designer of gardens from Komorowo near Warsaw. Her private garden is one of the hundred most beautiful gardens in the world (in a book by Emmy Reuss "Garden Design Close Up 2014").

The author in her book gives many tips, tricks and advice for gardeners, for example: how to make a garden, how to use flowers and how to select colours. There are also beautiful photographs and pictures of English gardens and exhibitions of Chelsea Flower.

I recommend this book (not only to gardeners!) very much.

My interesting book

My favourite novel is a family saga by Sarah Lark. It has five parts. This saga is about citizens of New Zealand. The autor herself spent years travelling as a quide. The novel describes the beautiful scenery and life of the local population. I recommend this book very much. It is very interesting and engaging.

My favourite book is "Thus spoke Zarathustra" by a German author of Polish origin, Friedrich Nietzsche. It is a philosophical novel in four parts about a wise man (historically, Zarathustra was a founder of Zoroastrianism) who travels around the world. The book is engaging and interesting. Sometimes it is sad and sometimes it's cheerful. In my opinion it has a happy ending. I recommend it very much!
