Weekend. The decent part of it.

Yes, there was a lot of fun going on this weekend. It started on Friday evening with a very lovely dinner at Jaka and Peter and, no, I am not posting pictures, because that's the way they prefer it. :) Anyways, the evening then drifted to a party I was writing about on Friday and there will be a not so decent, Friends only post following this one. I guess I just cannot mix apples and pears. Well, not today at least. LOL

Ok, enter Saturday. After a short night (yes, the not so decent post) Igor, my brother and I drove over to our friend Marijana who was a birthday girly a couple of days ago and she took us to the coast for a nice day and some food. Yes, that's the habit here - the one who has b'day prepares a party or something for friends (who show up with presents, of course). So, we went down to the coast, had lovely time, took some nice pics and the old saltpans, went across the border to Croatia to a lovely little village called Momjan and had a FANTASTIC meal in the sign of truffles - a lot, a lot of them. They pick (dig?) truffles in the Istria region of Croatia. It's a peninsula, but the inland can be described as Croatian version of Provence or Tuscany. Got the picture? :) And we stopped in Portorož (Slovenia again) on the way back and then watched Bridget Jones at Marijana's place.

Who could ask for anything more than a day with some of the people I love the most? Oh, and Marijana was the first person I ever came out to. It happened....... sometimes in the last millennium. LOL


Marijana, Robert and Igor. Aren't they simply adorable?



Igor in the saltpans.


Igor, Marijana and Robert....... standing.


Robert, Igor and Marijana...... walking on the muddy paths.


And getting there. "Take me," they said. :)


And little me. This one made the cut.

Thanks, Phil! It was a truly relaxing day and "take me" was just a part of it. It's funny how their pose somehow reflects their personality even while "offering".

Marijana is flirty, Igor is "I don't give a damn" natural and my brother is trying to be flashy. :)

That's how the are.

And I don't wear read often, although I like it.

Lovely lovely photos! Especially the "take me" photo - with a sexy Igor in it, by the way ;)
But I would appreciate some more photos of you - why only that one made the cut?

I'm very very very glad that you had such a great weekend! But I can't wait for the INDECENT part ;)

Oct. 26th, 2008 07:15 pm (UTC)
Igor is very sexy on that pic, yes. See what I wrote to dendren - it reflects how they really are.

Well.... I can only stand me on pics I take. Because I am - and I mean it, even though it might sound silly - really not relaxed when someone is taking pics of me. So, that was the only one I more or less liked.

INDECENT part.... will not feature me. LOL

Awesome to the power of awesome!

Truffles are tubers, they grow on the roots of certain trees. They're entirely too expensive when fresh here, so I use truffle oil. I make a smoked duck confit and potato pizza tart with truffle oil, roasted potatoes stuffed with parmesan, cream, and truffle oil, and tossed with fresh pasta and poached eggs with asparagus.

Can you tell I've not eaten a thing today and am still an hour away from dinner?

I can tell you haven't eaten.... And I know I have and I really shouldn't have eaten any more, but I will just HAVE to. :)

You're a master in kitchen, it seems. And truffles are also expensive here, but in Istria, their homeland, you can get them at reasonable prices and there was a HUGE pile of them on my plate, grated on home made fuži as they call fusilli there. :)

As the others said, the pics are great, but the 'pose' one is hilarious! Love it.

Looking forward to your post about the party...:-)

I like the pose one, too! They are so cool on it. :)

And, yes, party post will follow. :)

Definitely wear red. It suits you handsomely.

I like the "standing" pose best of these I think - each of them is alone but connected. It's a lovely picture.

Oct. 26th, 2008 09:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Mr. Martin! I will do it, I guess, as soon as I get my fingers on more red stuff. :)

Yes, they look nice when they all stand - each on their own line, yet still on a common field, connected with yet another line.

Yes Tomas Jungle Red does seem to be in vogue this season and you wear it well...However I love the height/depth and natural calming colour tones you managed to achieve with your indoor salon photo

Thanks, J! :) I had to mingle with white balance a bit to get the right tones.
