8.3.12

stormborn

this one is dedicated to my love of everything outdoors. trekking in the mountains, long walks alone with just a flask of hot coffee, picnics, beers by the fire, rugged clothes, the lot.
current enjoying:

+ stepping up my running regime and becoming (almost) obsessed with it. not just running in itself, which is obviously the most rewarding part, but also the whole lifestyle: getting the gear, plotting the routes, keeping a running log, reading up on the nutrition, compiling the playlist... I love it! now looking forward to an early morning run by the river on sunday.

++ warm breakfasts during the weekends. on rotation recently: millet groats + sautéed cinnamon apples, buttery semolina porridge + berries, honeyed barley + dates, oat porridge + banana, almonds and cranberries. the day just cannot go wrong after one of these. inspiration comes courtesy of two great blogs - this one and this one.

+++ books: peter høeg's 'miss smilla's feeling for snow' -  such a great read and so much more than another scandinavian crime novel. the plot is gripping, but what really draws you in is the atmosphere and beautiful writing.

'people in love worship a photograph. they fall on their knees before a scarf. they make a journey to look at the wall of a building. whatever can ignite the coals that both warm and sear them.'

for Polish readers - 'drwal' by michał witkowski. I'm relentlessly recommending it to everyone - best book I've read in a few years.

++++ tv: first up this year was the brilliant sherlock. then I went through a  period of withdrawal and to soothe the pain I started garrow's law (one needs a regular dose of rupert graves). you can always count on the brits to take a story that doesn't really sound very exciting (or 'legal drama inspired by the life of pioneering 18th century barrister william garrow') and make it into something great. now it's all about 'being human' again (i.e. what exactly is in the irish water vol. 2. if you're watching the show - you know what I'm talking about).

and if you're a bit fed up with my one-post-per-month (or three months, actually) routine - there's a constant stream of consciousness over here.

till next time - enjoy the longer days!

    1. Mam nadzieję, że Ci się spodoba, chociaż to książka budząca raczej skrajne odczucia - albo się zakochasz, albo odłożysz bez dokończenia :)
      pozdrawiam!

  13. Such wonderful pictures! You can never have too many fires when you're out in the wilderness. It's the most rewarding feeling eating by a fire after a long day. That bread looks delicious. :)
