It was an odd and eventful weekend

It has to be an unwritten law in the universe—the night before an eventful weekend, you just have to break out or get sick. In my case, I was puking and my head was spinning like a wayward top. Lovely.

In any case, I was able to rally enough to get out and join in on the adventures. How do they put it—come hell or high water, right?


Fall in the Pacific Northwest is gorgeous.


We were treated to the most stunning sunset. This photo was taken with an iPhone with no filters or editing applied.


Girls girls girls.

Sunday we attended a concert and got lucky enough to be able to meet (and in my case, hug) the singers!

All in all it was a successful weekend, I think.

Hello and welcome to my page~ My name is Larisa--a very common Slavic name that was either derived from the Latin word hilaris, meaning "cheerful," or from the Greek city of Larissa, meaning "strong fortress." Born in Ukraine, I emigrated with my family to America when I was still a small child and now make my home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Growing up immersed in two vastly differing cultures led me to have a burning curiosity about people all over the world. Stemming from said curiosity, I have fallen in love with traveling to other countries, meeting new people and delving into their culture, exploring new cities, and of course, dining on the local cuisine! If I cannot escape into a different country, then my next favorite method of adventure is to lose myself in a spectacular book. I enjoy books of all genres--from fiction and novels, to biographies and ethnographies. As long as it captures my fancy and holds me spellbound the entire time, I will burn through the book like a forest fire! Because of this penchant for reading and travel, coupled with my love of deep and mysterious things, I have been often called a dreamer and I find the title suits me. With that being said, I invite you to stay a while, perhaps make yourself a cup of tea and linger through my posts and feel free to comment or share a thought :-)

        1. Oh yeah, you’re enjoying my weather too 😁 that’s right! I pray to God that it doesn’t snow this year!! Last year I slid down a hill and someone slid right into me when we had that Snowmageddon nonsense.


          1. That’s right, I’d forgotten the Snowmageddon nonsense, haha! I’m not keen on snow and ice…I’m alone, don’t drive, and have to walk up a small hill to Safeway for groceries. So I’m starting to stock up on things “just in case”…and trying not to fret beforehand. And oh, I Pray A LOT! 🙂 Blessing to you today, dear ❤

    1. Not out of the woods yet, unfortunately ☹️ I got out of bed at 3pm today. I am always tickled pink that in the land Down Under, you guys are experiencing spring. I can’t imagine Christmas being celebrated in the summer!

      1. Vomiting is truly awful. Is it a virus? I hope it doesn’t hang around too long!

        Yup, Christmas for us is in Summer, often we have a traditional cooked lunch but a bbq for dinner. The day usually involves a swim, the beach, and eating outdoors. I had a couple of Christmas days in the northern hemisphere (one in France where it snowed and we went skiing) and that was so bizarre. 🙃🙂🤯.

        Get better soon 😘

        1. How interesting!!! I love hearing of other peoples experiences in different parts of the world, so thank you for sharing 💞

          It’s not a virus, the puking is caused by relentless vertigo. I woke up in the morning and shifted in bed, and it caused a wave of dizziness to crash over me. And then comes the vomiting from the motion sickness feeling. I can’t even talk about it because I feel like it returns when I remember how it feels. So there you have it.

          Thank you, I am doing everything in my power to recover as fast as I can 😘

  1. How about that back-up^ band? Did you give them all a hug for playing that wonderful Music for you? Or were they just a side-show, for those Singer’s? It seems to me that one cannot be without the Other, with-out that Back-up^ band, the singer has no Song, because they are all alone! There on that Stage…..

    1. Aww it was my pleasure! Imagine that, I didn’t know you lived in my state! We had a spectacular time and I’m glad I mustered through it, even while sick, I’d have hated to miss out on the concert especially.


      1. It’s that time of year, colds, flu, stomach virus I worked in medical for years hate this time of year for illness! Anyway yes feel better rest, if your stomach is still upset take it easy try plain chicken broth and some ginger ale sip slowly and slice some ginger root for nausea! Feel better and yes always love your pics 💜😉

          1. Ginger root can be bought in any grocery store, you shave some pieces off and nausea is gone in 5 minutes. It also has been proven to fight ovarian cancer. I use it daily! People use it in tea and it’s a staple item for sushi. I personally dont enjoy the taste I shave it and swallow just for the benefits! It helps with motion sickness too. Read up on it!

    1. I know!! That’s why I put the disclaimer on there that it was not edited in any way. A lady at the concert told me that we are experiencing sunsets like these because of ice crystals in the air.

      Thank you for the concern Ms. Bella—I hope things are well in your corner of the world 💐

    1. Oh wow! I have heard about Michigan winters—I love snow in the winter but last year was the first time I slid down an icy hill and someone slid into me. That wasn’t pleasant. I’m fine with it just snowing on Christmas Day and then melting in the next two days lol.

        1. Oh no! I am sorry to hear the prognosis of this winter for you guys! We had snowmageddon descend on us last year in February and it wreaked all kinds of havoc on Western Washington. We’re more used to the rain here.
