Ok, i do love rain for sure…i do love walking under some mild drizzle…i do love watching the raindrops hitting the window or i do love sleeping while hearing the rain like a lullaby, yet it is so frustrating when it rains each time i have to go out and especially when i forget to take an umbrella with me!!

Today was one of those days. When i woke up, the weather was so nice with the sun up there smiling at the earth. It was quite hot as well so i dressed up in thin and light-colored clothes and went out without even considering the idea of carrying an umbrella since it is just the middle of summer in Turkey which means it is unlikely for the weather to change its face from shiny rays to wet drops.

After taking a few steps on the street, the sky suddenly changed  its colour, rain clouds just formed a dark shadow and just then i felt the first drops. Thanksfully i was so close to underground and took a shelter there while travelling at the same time. After taking an underground train and then a bus, i arrived at my target spot when it started to rain cats and dogs!

Till now i was still dry to my bones. That was a success. Big time!

On the return way to home, it kept raining but at least slightly. Still the tiny drops managed to form wet spots on my t-shirt and loosen my tightly tied hair which was really annoying. I was not safe any more (in the middle of a street without any shelter and an umbrella) neither dry! And finally when i came home, i  was all messed up by look and was so tired due to this fight with bad weather. I know it is not the mansoon waves floading everywhere but it was still wet and cold!

Meantime, weirdly i was attacked by some butterflies three or four times while walking under rain. That was really absurd because instead of seeking shelter not to have their wings broken, the buttterflies were just flying directly towards human beings. I hardly saved my eye from these slow yet unexpected moves of these delicate creatures.

From this adventure of mine,

Lesson 1: No matter what carry an umbrella against unforeseeable rain episodes.

Lesson 2: No matter what carry sunglasses against unexpected guests such as butterflies 😛

Lesson 3: No matter what still keep loving the rainy weather as it is the most undispensible componant of romance 😀

Let me finish my rain-full sentences with rain-full scenes.

The people around me all know that i am /used to be a coke addict. I even used to have my breakfast in company with coke instead of awakening coffee or tea or a refreshing fruit juice although i knew/know how unhealty it is/was. However, recently bad habit of mine had to change into a good one, that is to say, i had to quit coke (as i need to be careful about what i eat and drink due to breast-feeding) and started to drink lemonade instead.

Hence our new kitchen motto is “No coke ever again!”

Was it difficult for me?

Yes, i found it very difficult as if i was trying to quit smoking (thanks to God, i dont smoke!) YET each time i  pour the yellow chilling lemonade into a glass, i feel proudly that i am a mother 🙂

It was surprising for me that just a simple decision of what to drink to refresh myself during the hot summer of Turkey has shown me that motherhood just depends on priority and sacrifice, and that one’s child is always on the top of priority list!

As a side-note, in this way i started to care for my own health as well…like killing two birds with one stone, isnt it?? 😀

Almost midnight…

The weather is spreading cold wave of air, even blowing ice on face…

The moon is up there, being unaware of the coming eclipse…

Shadows…frozen breaths…soulless bodies…

Sharp screams…the following deep silence…

Smell of forbidden love…friendship on the same boat with hostility…

Danger and caution…

They are back!

The (lovely) vampire story “Twilight Saga” is just going on with “Eclipse” which will be meeting the audience on the 30th of June…Fans are all on alert counting the days to meet the beautiful vampire family “The Cullens”, the extraordinary girl Bella Swan stuck between the vampires and the werewolves, and the scary yet gracious wolf gang…

Just last night i went through the previous parts of the “Twilight”  saga and “New Moon” to refresh the essential points in mind and to re-remember at what phase the story was pending…

If you are yet not included in the Twilight saga, get a glimpse of it from the following trailer and get ready to believe all those fairy tales and monster stories might just be true!
