Why do we live?

Is it really that important to live the life until the end? What if we finish early?

BOOM! The spring is springing!

My mom showed me these! A little while longer and…. YUM!

Tomato, avocado, salad and other greens 🙂 This was my yesterdays dinner 🙂
Salad and greens were from our garden. I’m waiting when we’ll have our own tomatoes as well >:)

LATVIA

This is a typical view in Latvia. I took this photo this morning 🙂

Ķegums

I stayed at parents house yesterday and this morning it was such a nice and fresh weather (mmmm)… I wish I could have something like that in Riga.

Flower

A few of many flowers in mom’s garden 🙂 And those white leaves come from apple tree 🙂 Romantic, right?

Racing With My Husband and Making Friends With Crows

I must confess… for more than a month now.. I’ve been trying to befriend with crows. They are amazingly smart and they can recognize a person by face. But the most interesting part is that they can remember you if you do something bad to them or because you do something good to them. My plan is to feed them – so I want to get on their good side ;D There are many species for crows and these are those who I meet everyday on my way to work:

And here are two videos from today’s fun with my husband in Mežaparks:

Later we went to eat some not so healthy food and we ordered a takeaway and we ate it at Kaspar’s office. I had never been to his office before. It was nice. And we also played ping pong a bit.. When I was starting to get good at it… I realized that I was tired ;D So then we went home. 🙂

And here I wanted to show you how Haley ravaged the blanket today… she also fell down from the bed.. Take a look! 🙂

Det latviske språket

It is the homework in Norwegian but I thought that I could publish it.. before it was corrected by my teacher. Enjoy my mistakes ;DD
Det er en hjemmelekser i Norsk men jeg trodde at jeg kunne å publisere det.. før det er rettet av læreren min. 😀

Det latviske språket er morsmål til cirka 1.7 millioner mennesker og det er det eneste offisielle språket i landet. Det Latviske språket tilhører til baltiske språkgruppe i indoeuropeiske språkfamilie. Jeg synes at det er veldig interessant hvordan det latviske språket ble skapt i løpet av flere århundre og hvordan overlevde det til tross for undertrykkelsen som ble tvunget av ulike land.

Det latviske språket har 3 dialekter – Lībiskais (Libisk), Vidus (Midten) og Augšzemnieku (toppbønder eller topp landboere ) men det literariske språket, som brukes fortsett i dag, er basert på den Vidus dialekten.

Opprinnelig var det Kurši, Zemgaļi, Sēļi, Latgaļi som befolket landets territorium som skiltet seg fra indoeuropeere omtrent 2000 f.Kr. Etter hvert forsvant det forskjellen mellom alle fire språk særlig da de ble kristnet og forenet under samme politiske, økonomiske og religiøse taket – Livonia (Den tyske orden).
I 16. – 18. århundre var det tyskbaltiske prester som ønsket å gjøre latinske religiøse bøker tilgjengelige til latviske medlemmer i kirker og det bidro til skriftlige språket. Men når vi snakker om den litterære språket er det viktig å nevne Ernsts Gliks som var prest i Alūksne. Han oversatt det nye testamentet og det gamle Testamentet til Vidus dialekten men dette språket ble akseptert i Vidzeme, Zemgale og også i Kurzeme.

Jeg synes at det er imponerende hvordan folk levde på denne tida. Jeg synes også at det er så deilig at utenlandske kunne hjelpe slik som de gjorde. Til tross for at det var menn som ønsket å tvinge den kristne troen, var det også menn som ville hjelpe uten å ødelegge kultur og språk. 13. århundre er veldig merkverdig på grunn av at så mye skjedde som påvirket måte hvordan vi lever og snakker nå.

Find Your Shadows

Sometimes I cannot even grasp the teachings and enlightenment that I have learned and experienced by watching Teal Swan’s videos. I’ve been watching her videos for more than a year now and when I look at myself back then, I realize how much I have changed. The things that I have achieved. She talks about the things that I and everyone on this earth can relate to. No one could help me the way that she did. She gave me the chance to really understand what is going on in my life as well as in my internal world. One of the most valuable things that I’ve learn is shadow work and core beliefs. We all go on in our lives hiding behind our true emotions and our true selves.. What is more.. we do not even notice it and even if we do sometimes notice it.. we just don’t know what to do with .. those emotions.. 

I warmly recommend everyone of you to watch this latest video but do not just stop there. If you see something that catches you eye, go ahead and watch it. Because this video is like learning about adding in maths.. but if you stop here.. you will never (hopefully later.. not never ) learn about multiplying and other great stuff in maths.

A small devil on Daigas shoulder: Great job Daiga.. really? Maths? Was that the best comparison you had? You know that like half of the humanity hates maths, right?

Very Competitive Mode

I have to say that things are really going very fast and also in the right direction ( so it seems ). 🙂 So as some of you may already know I and my husband went to Switzerland for Easter holidays. Please forgive me that I haven’t shared some photos.. So I will do it now 🙂 There are a lot of photos of nice view in Switzerland. There are also the family that showed us around and welcomed us as guests. We had the chance to live in Zurich’s hotel Sheraton. We drove to Luzern, Viamala and other nice places. Here are just the photos but in few words… We called ourselves as mountain junkies because we just were astonished by them. We took a lot of photos as well. We saw the biggest clock in Europe which is actually bigger than Big Ben ( the diameter of the clock itself is about 8 meters ). Then the amazing Viamala which is just a deep gorge between mountains. And the water was green everywhere and it was drinkable. Sweet. (a-face-of-approval). Also we ate lunch in the restaurant that you see in one photo.. there are queues all the time! Did you know that Logitech is a swiss company? And we also walked through the Bahnhof strasse. Tina Turner lives nearby ;D

Photos are here:

So at work everything is fabulous! I am now at my new department and we are learning the new processes. Also I am on my way to learn B2 level for Norwegian. On the 15th of August I am having my exam. After that I will get a salary increase. Fint, ikke sant? But I mean.. the job itself is so satisfying. I actually enjoy it. A lot! So interesting things going on and so interesting things that you can learn 🙂

Valts got baptized! He was so adorable in his costume. And he has his sneaky smile. Cuuutee!

We also bought a carpet that is under our tables now, because the chairs that we have were destroying the floor :F

Tomorrow we are planning to have a CS:GO marathon. We are going to buy all the food we need and then play CS:GO Competitive mode.. pretty much all day. FINALLY! >:)
