January 2019

It is time to begin again, said the calendar and plopped this January on us to handle however we see fit. Just right for the first post of my Calendar 2019 for which I select twenty photos from each month a year ago.










I have just put away the Calendar for the year 2018 – here is the final post – and conveniently a new year started.

The Pannonian Sailor used to sing I don’t like January but I don’t have a problem with it, neither with Mondays, especially since today is holiday, Epiphany or some such, hurrah.

Also, today is the birthday of my grandmother, baca Zana, and another hurrah for her and all my ancestors of whose love I’m a result. Here she is with her husband, my grandpa who died on this day of all days, her birthday. That’s me in the middle. The cat on the left was green. And still is, right there in Maribor.

And now let’s have a look at last January, blooming and flamingoing away. I didn’t go far and then again, I don’t need to. Everything is here somewhere.

Here are three previous Januaries, for comparison:

    1. Ah, thank you, Flavia. These were taken one year ago though. Maybe I got worse after that! 😮 😉 Or maybe my selection skills are getting better. I once heard it say that a photographer is only as good as their selection process.


  1. “how is it flamingoing?” Just like TSMS that’s the first thing I wanted to say. You are so funny. Hey! Happy 2020! I’ve been going to school and I started going to the gym on days when I’m not at school, and just like that I’m too busy to check up on my blog world again. I’m always glad to find you during my breaks though. Here’s to a lovely year ahead. ❤

    1. Oh great to hear, Crystal. Busy is good! Whereas I have a friend! Real life, flesh and blood. 🙂 She doesn’t live really close, more like two hours away, but we’ve had several outings already and she spent one weekend over. She is very similar to me in many ways. It’s wonderful, just what I was missing. (She is Flavia, see her comment above.) So I’d say my year started really good. I’m always happy when you come over. Into new adventures!

Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
