Simple Vegetable Soup


I made a very simple vegetable soup today.

After all the holiday feasting, this is exactly what my stomach craves these days.

This soup is so healthy.

And so soothing.

And so simple.


And perfect for a cool, rainy winter’s day – just like the one we are having here today.


I make this kind of soup quite often, varying the ingredients depending on what’s there in my fridge or what I feel like adding in.

Today I used broccoli, carrot, and parsnip.

And I loved it.




Here’s what we need.




1. Heat the oil in a pot over medium-low heat. Once hot, add the chopped onions and sweat until they begin to soften, approximately 5-7 minutes.

Random Joy


I go through this life looking for beauty everywhere I go.

It’s the exercise I practice daily and the joy and love it brings to my heart is truly immense.

I love the world in all its moods and seasons – summer or winter, rain or shine – but when the sun is shining the brightest, the sky is the bluest blue, and the air is crisp and fresh, that is one of the world’s faces I like best.

Come along and enjoy some random pictures that I took in the past few days.

Eye candies!


Happy New Year… And Red Panda

Happy New Year, dear friends!

May it be filled with blessings, joy, and peace!

That is what I wish to you and to your loved ones from the bottom of my heart.


I decided to have no New Year’s resolutions this years. I have learned that I need day-by-day goals that are easily and quickly fulfilled rather than any huge, long term plans. That is the way I function, that is the way I like it.

So, following this pattern, I am glad to present to you the result of one of my projects that I had set for myself to finish during this Christmas time.

The Red Panda.

It’s for my nephew Gaby. I really hope he’ll like it. And I really hope you like it too.

And now I’m off to work on my next colorful crochet project. I love it already and I will surely show it to you once it’s finished.


Have a great beginning of the New Year!

See you soon!
