Dear me

Ah, summer is in a full swing right now, and with temperature rising up to 30+ I enjoy every moment of it. Well, I’d like it even more, if I had any vacation days to lazily spend by a lake or something, but since I’m just fresh out of my trial period I have none, so have to make do with the lazily active afternoons after work and weekends. And during lunch break hour, which, quite happily, recently has been just pleasantly sunny and hot with no crash boom bang to scare the sh*t out of me 😉

The other day I’ve rented a city bike and pedaled to the park in search of some cozy spot in a pleasant shadows of some trees, and I’ve found one right next to the VilnelÄ— river. Ah, memories! I’ve spent so many good time there. But I’m never admitting I’ve done anything illegal as a teen though. Nah, never *lips sealed and cross my heart*

I’ve totally forgotten that the VilnelÄ— gets this great during summer. I must admit, thoug, that the lush great meadow of a river was very pleasing to the eye. The regular inhabitants did not seem to mind the excess of greenery too

A nice shady spot under the tree. What could be better on a hot hot day?

and this forget-me-not? first I’ve mistaken it for some water plant – so close to water it grows, and only later I’ve seen my error

But wait, there’s more. That’s what I’ve found among my change this morning

KurÄ—nas commemorative 2 Litas edition

KurÄ—nas commemorative 2 Litas edition

Haven’t seen this commemorative coin before, so when I’ve first noticed this one among other coins, my first impulse was that I’d been given some foreign currency or something. Just as I’ve thought there were only 1 Litas different commemorative coins, I’ve find out there’s also KurÄ—nas’ edition. What else did I miss? If I’ve missed anything, I sure must some catching up to do before it’s too late, since January 1st, 2015, we start saying good-bey to our Litas and saying hello to Euros. I’m not set against EU currency like some, but I’ll sure will miss Litas.

And then today a piece of good news came to my e-mail. It started with “Dear Ms., we’re happy to inform you that you’ve been (wait for it) ACCEPTED”! Yay! All I have to do now is to make sure I’ve sufficient funds to pay for the pleasure 🙂

    What a beautiful lunchtime spot! But I bet you used to shag, drink and eat sweets there – didn’t you?! 😉
    And congratulations!

    • Oh, you’re too Latvian for my taste 🙂 I’d never do THAT in public. OK, not all at once at least 🙂 But some underage drinking… well, technically it was legal to drink in public then, but since I wasn’t 18 yet… Sh, just don’t tell me mom, or this might ruin her ‘good girl’ image of me 😀
      And thanks! I’m quite excited 😀 and a little bit scared…

    That park looks lush – perfect for a quick office getaway. I’m out of touch a little – is it college or a job? Either way, congratulations!
