Rumor has it that I'm obsessed

Thanks to Megan and her wonderful blog post I figured It would be a good idea to write about my very own, lovely (or not) obsessions and explain myself and my blog-absence in the process. So here it goes :)

Not an obsession per se. More like a passion that seems to be busier than ever this year. I love doing my job but the hours are long and truth be told when one deals with children (of all ages) you just can't leave your work. They are people and you carry them with you. Actually my schedule is crazy on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and, my all time favorite, Thursdays (the reason why I miss out on the themes my fellow bloggers).

Spring Rolls

Actually any Chinese dish will do. Chi-ho If you're reading this I know what you're gonna say. They can't make a dissent plate of spring rolls in Greece but...we're trying :)

US TV Series about scientists and geeks who become spies

'Chuck' and 'The Big Bang Theory' air every Sunday afternoon in Greece and they crack me up every time I watch. Do you think that the Sheldon-character is...obsessive?!? Noooooooooooo.

Take care all

Coffee with a view

The Greek Parliament and winter sky

Every time I go to Athens (or any big city), no matter how many hours I've travelled or how tiring the trip was, I always relax and feel...happy. I love the rhythms of the city (when on vacation), the theaters, the crowd, the civilization. However, when it comes to having to work there I prefer my beautiful, smaller, 'uncivilized' hometown. Over there no matter how busy one is, he/she will find the time to see some friends, family and someone new :)

Have a great Monday and week

Holiday's over...or not...

Who says Christmas is over? Well apart from the fact that I got to get back to work tomorrow...Christmas is still my mind (or better yet in my pictures) lol

New Year's dinner at grandma's

Would you like something to drink?

Oh dear, what is that brown-ish thing on the salad?!
Classic Greek salad...olive oil, tomato and cucumber mixed together...

Grandma and her cooking magic!

And finally traditional Greek Christmas dessert...kourabies and melomakarona!
Today I got back from my 5 day trip to Athens. But that is a whole different post ;)
Happy New Year all
Health and happiness
