Thirty Smiles - Take #30 - Finally.

Yes, this is the last day of 2011 and I am finally making the last post of Thirty Smiles 2010. Just so that you cannot say I am not able to finish what I started. Darned Geminis and all, ok? Ok? :)
Anyway, I am really happy this year is ending today. It was an extremely demanding year work-wise (elections and stuff), but also an extremely rewarding one life-wise, so all in all, I should just be happy.
Finally seems to be the word of the season. Yes, finally, I also managed to get back to LJ. I guess this has been the longest cut-off since I started blogging, but I really couldn't focus on anything that wasn't absolutely essential. So, here it is, the last smile of the thirty and the last day and the last post of 2011. I am putting a fly-over my last months behind the cut and...

...ALL THE BEST 2012, ok? Let's make it one of those years really worth remembering. Deal?

Hugs'n'kisses'n'all!!!

T






New member of the family. Meet (yellow) Chicken. So Little Beak got a new companion, after 11-year old Žiga passed away.


Season of empty bottles. Finally.


And beer-cans. In the office, of course.


And the season of terribly gloomy weather.


And the season of eating... Arancini and panissette.


And Gerry visiting.


And the nights of Catan...


And some underworld. The rest is flickr'd.


And translating at home...


And really long days at work...


And checking weather conditions in France. Skiing, you know...


And endless hours spent waiting for politicians...


And little Taja's first Christmas...


And opening presents...


And decoration...


And more food bravery for the end of the year...



And that's it. See you in 2012!

Happy New Year, T! I was starting to worry about you. So glad to see your smiling face this morning. I hope next year is a lot calmer for you on the work front, but just as fun and exciting on the personal side of things! Big hugs, J

Here I am and I am glad to hear from you, J. Yes, I need a calmer year at work, but just as vivid on a personal front. :)

Hugs and kisses and happy12!

What's in the deviled eggs? I made some really good ones recently that had candied bacon.

I think... it was bread crumbs and aceto balsamico and some eggy and some mortadella and who knows what else...

And one od the dishes were also dried plums, wrapped in pancetta and then baked in the oven. GOOD :)

missing you lots here Tomaz. As always a wonderful set of pics. Where is the underworld? Are there cave systems near you?

And here I am. :)

Underworld is Postojna Cave and in Slovenia all is close. So it's a 30 or so minute drive from Ljubljana.

Your smile is a most auspicious omen... and a sensuous, delectably charged one... for the New Year!

Here's hoping yourself, Iggy, and all your lovers & friends & family have safe, warm, good times in the months to come. And fun!

It's always good to make sure that you are still alive. :P

It already feels a little strange to see your face on LJ, no kidding!

Wow, Taja has grown! :)

I still love it how you can tell a story in pictures with a few words thrown in. xoxo
