The lovely New Age Maiden tagged me for the 8 Photos of Happiness. I love this idea as I am pretty keen on showing lots of pictures on my blog. After I pondered, I’ve decided to look in the past, in the years before blogging and pick 8 pictures from there.
After nagging hubby for ages, he agreed to go with me at the F3 race that took place in the city centre in Bucharest. Well, he loved the race even though we knew nothing about the drivers or the teams. The sound, the crowds, everything was exciting. I had the chance to get into the simulator and I loved it, I was able to drive for a short lap.
In 2008 I volunteered for a short period at a horse shelter. I was walking the horses (on foot), petting them and in general showing them love and attention. I was allowed to give them treats, like this yummy apples.
We took this picture a couple of months after getting Festus. The cat, Chubbchubbs (named after the renowned The chubbchubbs) was not happy we’ve got the dog, Festus. At the same time, Festus was delighted he had a very cute friend to play with… and by play he meant chase around the house. I love this picture even though I don’t have any shoes and my hair is a mess. We were in the process of setting everything up for the proper picture.
We were at the Peles Castle, one of the residency of King Michael I of Romania (great-great-grandson of Queen Victoria). Is only a few hours from Bucharest, in the Carpathian mountains, built in late 19th Century. It’s called a castle, but it is a palace. It’s opened to the public.
We’ve been there a few times and that time we had Festus with us. I remember it because Festus was still a pup, less than 1 year old and he barked at a dog statue. It was so funny seeing him puzzled by a statue that looks like a dog but it doesn’t smell like a dog. Also he stayed and listened to a pandean pipe song, played by someone on the castle grounds.
We took this picture at our last Christmas together in Romania. I though is pointless to try to convince the cat to get a photo with us as he was so reluctant. I think Festus was looking at Chubbchubbs when we were taking this picture.
I want to tag only 5 bloggers, but I hope more readers will join in. Even if you don’t have a blog, select 8 photos and think why they made you happy, is a process you’ll love x
