This is Moscow 1994 I was ....11 years old, this is my first helium balloon, also the same day I tried my first Pepsi or Coco-cola (don't remember which they taste the same to me) How old where you when you got those "Simple" pleasures, to me it was like winning a lottery :) I still go nuts if someone gives me balloon, but I don't like Coco-cola :)
i say WHAT? Because of people like that we had to fight so hard to be together. If you don't trust your spouse make a contract. HOW DARE YOU? It makes me so mad, i know there is people who use people but not ALL. OMG i cannot belive they did it. Am i overreacting? I just think so many people give up and maybe they have true love, I don't think it is fair. And no it wasnt easyer to get here even when we where married. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR I love you CANADA but this is rude. +Gord Birch what do you think?
Maybe I've told you, maybe not, I could see a post where I did :) I'm painting a huge mural on 4 panels 4x8 feet of Canadian Rock Stars. This is a biggest project ever for me, I'm really excited. I primed panels, now I have to start mapping on where to put faces and then i'm off to adventure :)
I'm painting it for a friend who runs "Rock Guitar Shelter" http://rockguitarshelter.com/ J.R. fleet runs it, he gets a lot of donations of musical instruments and then he fixes them and gives away to kids and gives them free lessons. So if you would like to help with a great cause you can donate on his site above. So here is a rough sketch. Let me know what you think :) Thanks
So who wanted to see my "Pin Up"???? It didn't turn as good as I have hoped but it is my first time and I usually shoot for the starts :) So I say it was success :) Also when we there checking put gallery I hear very loud lady who was saying that it was her favourite piece in whole gallery, made me feel so great :)
+Gord Birch and Pashka was driving me to work, and we where talking about our car and how soon we won't have warranty, so I joked and said maybe it is time for a new car. When we got to my work and I went to kiss Pashka he said: Mom lets buy a new car?! I said, no honey as we don't have enough money, so my little monkey says: Ill help you to make money we can all work: I will draw, you mommy will paint, and daddy will take pictures, then we will sell it and get a new car :)
Made me smile so huge. Little guy but already tries to help. Maybe we should make a small gallery show to show all our work :) Birch Art :)
So this is what happened today when I was paying attention to Pashkas words "Lets decorate the tree" I was cooking and didn't really heard him that well. When I saw it, it totally cracked me up . WOW I love that boy. Who cares that we don't have decorations we can use garbage :) my Russian boy
Maybe you can help me people of Google :) I Have a long trip to take home with my almost 4 year old son, so I have couple of questions: Do you let your kids play games on your phone or tablets? What game your kids play? I have some but it usually takes him 3 minutes and he is bored. Any other helpful tips are welcome. We will be flying 9 hours then 5 or more hours in airport and 2.5 again.
I saw a lot of questions lately and I thought to ask one too :) What do you do when you have a problem, not a silly one like a broken nail or a pimple, but something important and maybe personal?! Do you go to your friends and unleash the sadness?! Go to your parents?! Sit quiet and wait till it pass or you figure it out on your own? Or tell a stranger on the bus or in the internet, feel better that they won't judge and even if they will you will never see them again? :) Another one... tell a story like it is someone you know (but it is your story in real life) :)
I promise I deliver :) Here is link to Global news and our Rock Mural :) Gord said that he noticed my accent there, and when I was listening to myself I herd it too, because I usually don't notice it so much hahahha :) I was nervous :)
I was felting all day so, my hand started to hurt, so I went to look if we have a cast or something, and look what I found. This picture is my favourite, look at how they look at each other? Pure LOVE. This is my parents. It is a very long but sweet story.If you have time .... This is the first day when my dad saw me and this little bundle of joy - me :), in USSR there was the funny laws. For example : My Mom stayed for 2 weeks in the hospital and she wasn't allowed to see my dad, and my dad wasn't aloud to see me. Personally I think it is great that they took such a long care of my Mom , but not sure my Dad loved it :) Mom was telling me story , that after I was born dad was standing under her window and yelling for her , when she looked down he asked her to open window, she was on the second floor . After window was opened he threw huge bucket of Gladiolas , but she wasn't allowed any flowers in her room. So Mom threw them back, Dad was upset and threw them back at her, it was hard but she give them back. So my Dad just threw them on the pavement and started to jump on them. Said if you can't have them, nobody will. After that picture was taken they didn't had anywhere to go and for about 3 month of my life we where homeless but I never knew about it, my Mom and Dad never showed me that it was tough for them. I grew up a very happy person and I just wish that Pashka will grow up a happy, kind person too. I love my parents so much ♥♥♥ Reminder to myself : be nicer to them :)
So my Googlians I want To say HAPPY NEW YEAR , I'm finally in it :) I wish everybody to get a taste of good life and never let i go. Let us be happy and smile not only when someone tickles you, but just because it is a new day :)
Sharing this potato but with a reason. When I was small we had a game "Hot potato" we had a ball and pretended it was hot potato , we had like 2 seconds to throw it to other person, not sure what was the rules, but it was fun
Woke up too early, sitting looking at pictures and this one is one of my favorites :) That’s me and my best friends( about 6 years ago) , and she is coming from Holland today, and I can't wait to see her.

I don't remember laughing harder and out loud after seeing funny stuff on internet. I usually giggle in my head, but now I know how it feels to LOL <--- and I really dislike that word :) But I'm LOLing for 30 minutes and can't stop :)
