The Colours of the Walls


The latest news: today, we have received the keys to our house. Tomorrow is our grand move. If only our movers would arrive on time, because we've been warned by our friends that they are notorious for showing up late, if at all.

Once Upon a Time


Quite a few events have taken place over the course of this first month of the new year. A little too many for my taste. I prefer a gentler flow of time. I like to be able to observe the rays of the sun as they glide across my tablecloth. One such ray stumbles upon a teacup or a tangerine. It freezes for a moment. Then it jumps over the object, and continues on its way. With all the concerns that I have had to settle in the last little while, I haven't even been able to find a moment to visit High Park. And that should tell you a lot. My stress levels are pretty high at the moment.

Many thanks to all those who are leaving me comments and visiting my blog. I promise that, after a bit of time, I will answer all of your questions. And, of course, I will recall our move from Moscow to Toronto, once upon a time.

Happy New Year to all those who celebrate the Chinese New Year.

A –°ouple of Things, and a Thought



If you start packing up the things you have acquired over the course of 11 years, you're bound to make some interesting and unexpected discoveries.

I have found the shoes that I had brought from Moscow, which you can now safely call vintage. I even thought "What if, instead of a Little Red Riding Hood, there was a Little Red Shoes? The fairy tale would have a completely different ending".

New Year's Resultions and Some of My New Blogging Rules


I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year, and hope you have a great one. Thank you very much to everyone who commented on the previous post. Also, thank you to my new followers; I really appreciate you reading my blog. Those of my readers who have been following me for a while know that my family is about to move to a new house. The month of January will be devoted to packing our stuff. Because of this, unfortunately, I will not be able to carry on with my usual active blogging life. I will update as often as I can, and let you know how the changes go. I regret to say that, at the moment, I will not be able to respond to each comment individually. However, I will visit your blogs in whatever spare time I may be able to find.
