The Last Days of Summer

Summer ended quite abruptly this year. One day it was sizzling hot, and a second later it was rainy and 15 degrees colder. Not fun! I am a bit sad to see the summer go, partly because this year I didn't have many chances to enjoy it. I also just bought two folding lounge chairs for my backyard, but I didn't have a chance to sit in them because it was cloudy and rainy for the past week and a half. It's finally sunny again, but it is a little chilly - definitely fall weather. I would like more warm days, please!

In order to prolong the summer, if only in my mind, I decided to post some photos from my vacation in Greece. Blue skies, sparkling seas, boats, and white sand beaches...dreamy! This year I was really craving the beach, with its salty air and the sound of the waves. I needed to be outside for a whole week, sightseeing or relaxing with my Kindle and a good book.

The sea brings all of these beautiful marble and quartz rounded pebbles to the shore, like the ones that you can get in home decor stores for a ton of money, so I went crazy and brought back something like 10 kilos of stones in three colors. It spent quite some time laughing at myself for that, but it was worth it, because I put some of the pebbles in glass cylinder vases I got from IKEA and arranged them with my big glass cylinders of pine cones  to get a nice setup. It goes really well with the natural and chocolate and milk tones of my living room. And it was pretty much free :)

Lately it takes me forever to write a blog post. Scrambling to finish the summer quarter of my MBA (which means that I am actually done with half of the program), I pretty much spent most of my scarce free time sleeping :) I did, however, go to one of the Sofia Breathes festival days one Sunday after my exams. I really like street fairs and stands selling handmade stuff and street performers. I took s few photos, and here is a small selection of them - a cute colorful pixel painted chair, a line of linocuts featuring scenes from Bulgaria and a guy spray paining a gorgeous butterfly. Enjoy!
