Interstitial 113-116: Bunny, Sweet, Tiny, Rainy

I’ve posted daily on tookapic and instagram, but not here; it takes a little more time to post on WordPress. I was busy with a special guest, my Mom. She arrived Thursday and left Saturday morning. We ate at IKEA, walked in a nature park, and saw Agnes Obel. My Mom turns 70 this year. The importance of spending time with her has increased greatly.

Interstitial 30: Moss, with Pug

Part of my daily routine is taking out the dog, I mean my boyfriend. I take him to our backyard and walk along with him. It’s a moment between what I was and will be doing. For him, it’s THE moment. Except when it’s raining.

He likes to check a few regular spots. While he was busy with one of those spots today, I placed my camera on the ground for some interesting shots of moss. He decided it’d be more interesting if he was part of the shot. I don’t disagree!

 

Interstitial 16: Snegurka

In some Slavic countries, the New Year is celebrated with Ded Moroz (Old Man Frost) and his granddaughter Snegurka (Snow Maiden). The tradition of Christmas was banned in Soviet Russia, but celebrating the New Year was allowed in 1935.

From what I can tell, it was at this time the two mythical characters teamed up and Snegurka became granddaughter to Ded Moroz, joining him to help deliver presents to children.
