9th of May

Today is the 9th of May and Ukraine as long as other post-soviet countries is celebrating a Victory Day, that marks the capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union in the Second World War. It is the 66th anniversary this year, but we still have some veterans alive. This day is an official national holiday. I've spent this day in my small home town Pryluky and we've got a little parade with orchestra here. Also there was a small exhibition of retro cars.

It was a nice sunny day, so I had an opportunity to take few nice photos of flowers I found during our after-parade walking.

Some blue flowers.

Apple blossom.

Dandelion and a bee.

We were walking in the historical area of our town, there are few old churches here. I'm going to make a small excursion for you later.

Yesterday we've got a mini sushi party. Just salmon-cucumber sushi.

Also I caught some sky in my purple tea cup while drinking tea with purple wrapped chocolates :).

After all that we had a family crochet time. My mom was working on her patchwork blanket.

And I've created a new amigurumi family member!


  1. Hi !
    Thanks for new photos. I guess I know who wanted to see the cars ;)

    Did you do those sushi rolls by yourself ?

  2. You're right partly. Oddly enough, but maybe I wanted even more :)

    As for sushi - yes, me and Vo made them together.

  3. Very nice. They look better than in a sushi bar. I bet they are delicious.

  4. Yes, they were yummy. Probably the main advantage of homemade sushi (after taste, smell, process, etc.) is their quantity.

  5. Not only quantity but quality as well. I believe you didn't measure the exact weight of salmon you put in, right ? You just put as much as you wanted unlike chefs in sushi-bars. Also homemade food prepared with love and positive attitude always tastes better. At least for me ;)
