Back Home

It's been hectic.

Go sign the contract and get the money for the translation. Check. Go see the doctor (the results were good, yay!). Check. Go buy the bus ticket. Check.

Sea is always nice


And then, there I was, on the bus for Croatia, to visit my family. They live by the sea, which is always nice seeing. The water was too cold for swimming, at least for my taste - there were people in it. Not that it mattered; I enjoyed being by the sea, spending time with my father and my kid brother (twenty years younger than me and almost twice my size), and, being the workaholic I am, I also brought my netbook with me, read the books I intended to read, and started the work on the new translation.

A friendly dog, unless you're an intruder, or a dominant dog.


Oh, and I shouldn't forget Roko, my father's dog, now a senior canine citizen, age 14 (a year younger than my brother). His hearing and sight are poor now, but he still enjoys seeing me, and being petted and walked (not a long walk, though, he gets tired).

Roko and me; he doesn't care to pose.


And, after a 13-day-long trip, I'm back home, got some really good results from the doctor, I'm back to translating, and back to writing.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

Adorable dog! I'm partial to dogs (I think my PB shows that.)

I'm glad you got good news from the doctor.

Indeed, not bad, not bad at all, Ivana! Roko is handsome as can be! Your photos are great!It's wonderful to visit family--especially when they live by the sea! :)

I've always heard Crotia is beautiful. Is that where the picture of the sea is taken? It looks so serene.

@Kelly: I'm a cat person, but I like dogs too, and this one is definitely adorable. :)

@Bella: Glad you liked the photos and Roko!

@wosushi: yes, the picture was taken in Croatia, in a small place called Omisalj, on the half-island of Krk.
