I believe that positive thinking is a prerequisite for positive action.

When I think positive , I honestly don't imagine the perfect me for one simple reason: only God is perfect. Thinking positive doesn't mean ignoring setbacks. It means considering setbacks positively...seeing the best instead of the worst has helped me face a lot of difficulties effectively.

When I first came to live in Canada, October felt like January or February in Northern Greece! I guess this is freezing cold for you!!! For example, it's got 7C right now which is a very mild temp for Quebec. It took me a year to get used to it. Autmn is so beautiful in Quebec - I love the soft golden colors of the season and I don't find it sad at all!

On Sundays, we usually have a huge breakfast and go out with the baby - she's turned two now and really enjoys Sundays in the park.In the winter we often go skiing or stay at home watching movies or playing board games. Your living room looks so nice and elegant, by the way.

I practically grew up with fasolada. We'd mostly have the soup in which my mom added some potatoes as well. To this day it's still my favorite dish.

Oh là là!!!! This must have been a great cruise. Having read your post, I'd love so much to visit these islands in the Dodecanese. Your photos are worth more than a million words! Thanks for sharing. As for the cruise ship, it looks huge and impressive!

It's got 20C right now in Quebec which is ... nice weather although we had some light rain as well. Ahhh...not really the Greek summer! Hope you enjoy your holiday. School here starts on August 28.

When I read your Greek recipes, I miss home so much! I remember my grandma in Thrace preparing her very special kokkinisto for us and she still does, you know, when I go back home on vacation. In Quebec, there are some Greek restaurants but there's nothing like homemade cooking. I guess I must learn how to cook. I think I will try your recipe as it sounds easy hoping that hubby will eat it! :-)

I love your recipe so much! That's the kind of food I miss most from home. I'm not sure I can find fresh greek lavraki here in Canada, if I don't I guess I can use the chilean sea bass which is quite common here.

I once tried to blog on Blogger but all I managed to do was post some videos :-) Since high school, writing has never been my favorite subject! I am quite good at computers, though, but there is one thing on your blog I couldn't figure out. I have recently noticed that your handwritten signature appears at the end of your posts. It looks as if it was actually written in ... ink! How is that possible?

Your post today has made me quite nostalgic about so many summer holidays spent in Greece with family and friends. Sounds like you and Alkis spent a terrific weekend. Great photos!
