10 things

At the beginning of August Ester from Kosenrufu mama gave me an award in which I must say 10 things about me...



1- when I'm angry I slam things (pans, plates, doors...) so that the other can hear me;
2- I hate when someone looks at me when I'm doing something: I'm in awe (it's different only if I'm cooking or taking pictures!);
3- I love so much travelling;
4- I love to drink directly from the bottle... even if IT'S NOT ALLOWED!!
5- sometimes, when I look in the mirror, I'm scared to see a ghost behind me... O_O
6- I like elves and when I play role playing games online I always choose elves, possibly wizard or druid (I love the archer too!!!)
7- I love DOITYOURSELF... I'd like to paint the walls, decorate furniture, make stencils... but I'm lazy, lazy, sooooooooo lazy!!!
8- sometimes I'd like to throw away my television (RHCP teach!!) but my favourite TV at the moment is SPONGEBOB, can't lose it!!
9- I do love reading, sometimes two or three books at a time... unfortunately after a little I forget them (but I read again the ones I liked!!)
10- from time to time I wanted to be journalist, astronomer, marine biologist, coroner, screenplay writer.... and it wasn't a long time ago!

Annecy: la ville

I just realized that since I've opened my foodblog I've neglected these "chronicles". So I decided to go back and start again from Annecy, a french gem that I loved a lot! It's been a rich and wonderful travel and source of big inspirations: after antique market and sunday market here comes a view on this beautiful city.























While we were wandering through the city park along the lake we had the luck to watch a concert that charmed us.





























At the end what remains of Annecy is a wonderful memory because is an amazing and sparkling city. When you leave you know that you'll visit it again to discover other "minimal chronicles"!

Here I am...

Marina di Carrara, the country where my grandparents were born, where my daddy was born, the home where I go for holidays every year since a long, long time... This is the olive, symbol of home... and family! He's there since more than hundred years, reassuring, silent witness of our lives.



Here's the little garden, warm and comfortable, with its fountain, also centenary as the olive.



One of the things I love more of this house is the possibility to live outside, always... eat, cook, wash... everything can be done outside...



... together with one more centenary object, this wonderful marble sink (don't forget we're in Carrara, famous all over the world for its marble quarries!)



Here there are always visitors... human and not...









Soundtrack of it all, the music of the wonderful guitar of my uncle...



I love Marina di Carrara even if it's not dreamland! The sea is not wonderful, the city itself is not so beautiful... but I love sitting on the rocks listening the song (or the shout... I remember my cousins and me running through the high waves that bypassed the pier!!) of the sea; I love walking on the sand, diving in the waves all the afternoon, then running home "because it's late"... and rinse the swimsuits full of salt and sand in the marble sink... I did all these things when I was a little child and now I can find my same gestures, my same emotions and moods in my little monsters... all so reassuring! I didn't post sea pics... you can find them in older posts and other will be posted in the future... but in this season it's not the sea I prefer! See you soon and wonderful holidays to all of you!!
