Happy Friday!

I have not yet met a single person who doesn’t experience that special Friday feeling. It’s the end of the working week for many people and a time to anticipate the freedom and fun that the weekend offers.

I was born on a Friday and I love this day of the week. I even created a website called ‘Friday’ that celebrated this special day ūüėÉ

Friday is sometimes connected with superstitions and odd beliefs.
In Georgia (where I live), ‘Nine Fridays in a day’ describes people who change their minds too often.

‘Friday Girl’ was my nickname in childhood (used mostly by my parents). My mother’s explanation was: ‘You do everything upside down because you were born on Friday and you have Nine Fridays in a day!’

I still do things in my very own way, which perhaps can be described as ‘upside down’ but I still don’t know how Friday is connected with such type of behavior.

However I can understand the second part of the ‘Nine Fridays in a Day’ saying. I often change my mind. I did it a lot during my childhood. I had many hobbies and interests, which constantly competed for my attention – in the morning I wanted to be a painter and pirate, in the afternoon a pianist or writer, or maybe a biologist? A chef? A cosmonaut? Later in the afternoon I would decide that I would be a police chief or a cartoon creator. In the evening I was already dreaming of a film director’s career.

Well, I definitely didn’t become a pirate, though I did learn a lot of many interesting things by frequently changing my mind. In my heart, I know I am a Friday girl!

When I grew up and started work, my Friday expectations were never connected with weekends. I was a journalist and that profession doesn’t recognize formal working days or even holidays. However, Fridays were always somehow special. Perhaps it is because I am a ‘Friday Girl’ ūüėÉ

Last week, I started this blog and have already posted 13 articles, optimized my art website, made some digital paintings, took lots of photos, kissed my cat hundreds of times (which she considered to be bullying), tickled my dog a lot and did some other interesting things as well. It was a lovely week!

I feel a bit tired but happy – thank God it’s Friday!

Thanks God, it's Friday!

I wish you an amazing and joyful weekend!

My Family and Other Animals

Hello there! Hope, you are having nice time ūüėä

Please grab a cup of coffee, and let’s get to know each other better!

Although I created this website as a journal of my art journey and artsy lifestyle generally, I need to say couple of words about my family members in case they invade to my blog pages and occupy some part of it. Or at least actively participate in the stories, I’ll post here as I wouldn’t be able to restart my career if not their support.

CAST OF CHARACTERS:

The head of the family – Monkey aka Minkey (a shortened version of Mini Monkey) who is actually a cat and not a monkey. We rescued her from the street five years ago. She was dirty, hungry, and thirsty and had a broken leg. We cleaned her up, fed her and fixed her leg and she has been with us ever since. She currently serves as the boss of the household and like all cats is a self-proclaimed princess. She was definitely put on earth to rule!

Minkey. The Boss.

Minkey is the busiest member of our family. Her responsibilities include the supervision of my artistic work. As an art curator, she closely monitors my progress and ensures that everything is done according to her exquisite taste.

Caucasian Shepherd dog Moses ‚Äď a pretty girl, not a boy as might be expected by her name. When she was born, her behavior reminded me of the silly seal Moses from Vi p√• Saltkr√•kan by Astrid Lindgren, so I named her Moses.

Moses is a large dog and scary looking but she is a sweet and most loving creature who still thinks she is a puppy who can still jump on your lap. She doesn‚Äôt mind that she is five years old already and weighs nearly 70 kilos. Her job description is not too long. She is just responsible for being lovely and cuddly for family members and scary for imaginary intruders.

My teenage son lives in his own self-proclaimed kingdom in a part of our house where moms, pets and cameras are not allowed. He has grown up quicker than I could ever have imagined was possible and I require special permission to take a photo of him. Well‚Ķ this time I didn‚Äôt get that permission ūüėÉ

And at last my wonderful, very supportive life partner Mike Bear, who persistently supports one of my hobbies ‚Äď cooking. He probably is only Englishman in Georgia who has actually tasted every single Georgian dish. His current size of waist is directly proportional reflection of this support.

That’s it for now. Thanks for getting to know our family!

Hugs from all of us,

XXXX
