5 things I can’t live without #photo

Yes, I’m not a huge fan of ‘Lets’ Count Things’ – posts …but then, I saw the article of Dave Hill (‘Slade’) – Five things I can’t live without and it inspired me to share my ‘things’ with you.  Pictures are mine. Teeth as well. 

1. Hand cream
Yes, you heard it right. I’m washing my hands hundreds times a day. Or more. Simply because I’m cooking 3 meals a day and I have two never-clean dogs.
I need my hand cream! 
I guess there’re smarter folks out there. But Ray is not one of them, sigh. baking2. Dogs


3.   Books – because books makes us free…

‘The books are more than books, they are the life, the very heart and core of ages past, the reason why men worked and died, the essence and quintessence of their lives.” Cicero

4.  My teeth
I wanted to say ‘husband and family’ – again, a very pragmatic girl here. But just imagine waking up one day with no teeth in your mouth. I had this kind of dream once (long time go) – and it wasn’t fun at all.
Also teeth aren’t teeth until you smile haha it’s a good point – so let’s have them 😂

“I wrote a song about dental floss but did anyone’s teeth get cleaner?”
Frank Zappa

5.  Belief – my surviving skill.
Again, a pragmatic approach. Believe in something and the world around you will be on the way to change. Because you have changed too, by believing. So if you have changed – other things start/have to follow (add actions). Oh, I hope this is how it works. But if it doesn’t – it have to! 


“You have to believe. Otherwise, it will never happen.”
Neil Gaiman

Now -> share your 5 things! And have a great Friday evening! (this is scheduled post, because I’m in the restaurant with the guest)

P. S. I’m blogging 2 times a week from 16 July to 30 August 2018. From 1 September 2018 – 5 times a week as usually.
I won’t be able to read your posts as I always do. But I’ll check all the links if you’ll participate in some of my challenges or prompts. WHY Ray is taking that break? I’ll try to finish my second draft or whatever it will be (before 1 September). So chill, enjoy your summer! ✌️💕

Here’s the nose I drew today (digital, first attempt). I have problems with drawing faces, but I’m planning to learn, and digital art is a huge help, because you can always delete some steps or get back. 

Procreate App, iPad Drawing

Next post – Psycho – Logical Tale ‘The Art Of Charm or How To Have a Swagger’, saturday

  1. You have a great 5 there! I was putting together mine and I replaced “Hand Cream” with Goals on mine! Thank you! 🙂

  2. Teeth and dogs. Teeth because you must eat, and look good!😁 Dogs because they are so sociable and wonderful friends, one in the family!😊

  3. I regularly dream that all my teeth fall out one by one! It’s supposed to mean that you’re feeling insecure. BUT I think I’m just really afraid of losing all my teeth. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️

  4. You rock. Thanks for the shout-out on the poetry post. I also appreciate the constraint of a little less writing in order to finish a draft of something important. We’ll hold you to that, you know. Lol. 😉

  5. I like hand cream, too. Not moisturizer, but an actual mousse made from the hands of primates (usually gibbons). Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it…

  6. Hand cream… checked! (Especially because unlike you I often do the dishes without gloves 😂)

  7. I thought you were away for the summer, and had comments disabled for whatever you were gonna post. What happened to that?

    Has anyone told you that Sky looks like they should be named Daisy and Daisy should be Sky?

    • Yes it’s mostly disabled (but on some posts i enable the comments). And I’m away haha that means I’m not stressed & post when I want only = have absolutely free time 🙂
      Nope …Nobody told me about Sky & Daisy. But i guess u r right, I see ur point :))
