June 2019

I’m on a bit of a blogging break but I don’t wish to miss my Calendar 2019 entry. Here are twenty images from last June before this June is done.







I’m safely tucked away in Piran where the weather is changeable and not nearly as hot as last year but it’s only the first day of summer. I still need to test the Adriatic sea this year.

So far it was nearly empty but yesterday I saw tour busses start roll in and listened to groups of tourists speak Italian, Russian, Portuguese, German, Czech, English. I just hope the number of infected doesn’t grow from a handful of new cases a day, which is what we have now.

Also it’s the new moon and this means that I’m on the 24-hour fast, and my father as well. The way he is cooking, it’s the least we can do. 😀

Last June was hot. We went to Rome to meet amore’s father’s new cat. At the end of the month my uncle came over to take me to Slovenia.

Before that he dogsat bestia while we went to Massa Marittima for a special occasion: British painter Donna Stiles, who lives there, had her first painting exhibition. It included my portrait, “Sweet 17”, made after a photo of mine from that age. Imagine my surprise if I hadn’t known in advance that I’d be hanging in Tuscany for a week.

Be well and have a happy summer, or winter, as the case may be. See you on Thursday.

Here are the five months of 2019 so far:

And here are three previous Junes for comparison:

And now? This sums it up:

    1. Thank you, Bojana. Well, fun is relative. I’m staying home with my parents a lot, go to scenic dog walks and today I swam too (and dodged jellyfish, the non-stinging kind). No friends here yet, that will happen in Ljubljana later on.

    1. Thank you, Sandy! Nothing about me and mine is about religion. This is a personal choice due to the fact that my ex dog didn’t eat when the moon was full (I fast twice a month, on the full and blue moon). And I read about how people claim it’s a good purifying thing to do. So I used to do it for about five years in my thirties and I was the healthiest (and leanest) then. Now I’ve started again. I do drink unsweetened tea or lemonade. I really recommend it.

  1. I have not done WordPress in awhile, so I really had to search for you!! And your new blog. I have loved following you and your travels, and when I went back to WordPress, it was your blog I wanted to reach for first!!! I am confused. Why are there tour busses during this pandemic?

    1. Oh, Carol, I’m so glad to hear this! ❤ That you've searched for me! And I'm even more glad that you've found me. In Slovenia the pandemic was cancelled a while ago and now life is going back to normal. Still some rules apply, such as no gatherings over 500 people (I think), but restaurants, bars, shops etc are opened and the staff wear masks. I hope it will not result in the second wave. I'm still home most of the time. No wish to crowd. Welcome back to my blog and now stay close! 🙂


  2. I share your concern about tourist buses rolling in and hope that Piran has not subsequently seen a spike in the number of cases. Love Donna’s Sweet 17 portrait of you!!!. How I wish I was upon that rare boat in your photo. Your June flora photo is inviting as well. That ‘July’ cartoon had me roaring.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. July is here and nothing hurts, yet. 😀 I love this portrait too. Donna said she would gift it to me! I sent you the photo of this boat via Messenger back then, remember? You said that it was indeed a bit similar to Amandla. 🙂 All good to the crew!

Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
