Abandoned palace in the centre of Prague, opened for a couple of weeks on the occasion of a theater performance and an art show. Here are a few pics of details from the inside, the building is from the 19th century. We were walking in somebody's former apartments, the palace had been turned into separate living units and offices with immensely large rooms, high ceilings, white window shutters and views over the elevated highway. The stairway is fancy. The chairs - who knows where they come from, most likely they have been there since they were ultra modern.
We are into Hama Beads now, you can make lot of stuff in the spirit of minecraft out of it. Or you can make some "crazy patterns" as we call it when you get tired of it. The little guy made the middle one, I like it the best. I showed him some weaving: "You see, real stuff..." He has tried that too, weaving could be also exploited for minecraft creations, after all.
We went to a botanical garden, the one that is less fancy and belongs to the Nature science faculty. Maybe it is more fancy than I think, who knows. We like this film. It has bad reviews, they say it is too slow but hey, that is what I like about it! Anyway, aesthetically it is very pretty film. It takes place in a botanical garden, that is why. When we went we bought a plant there, a redundant one. Too bad that we don't know how to take care of it, the leaves are getting yellow. I guess, it is not thirsty anymore.
The little guy said today that he cannot wait to go to school. I hope he is not bored with me at home. He doesn't want to go out too much either. We have traveled a lot this summer, worked a lot, and we like to stay at home for the last few days of our holiday. We play badminton, we are getting better at it.
I was rewarded three days on my own. Mainly because I needed to finish work on a book (that I am editing for a publishing house). That didn't stop me from enjoying various pleasures the entire free space was giving me. I didn't know which goodie, which tidbit, to choose first. It is almost finished now, tomorrow I will twine round my family again. I've been missing the little guy the most. Tomorrow his little chitter chatter start again, instant talk, monologue, about Lego and various other tidbits of his that he never stops thinking about. I usually don't have an idea what he is talking about but I remember exclamations that can relate to my own existential feelings. Before he left it was: "...switch to the creative mode..." and "...a lever that can change almost everything..." I could identify with that.
P.S. The drawing of squares is a common drawing of the Little Guy's and mine, laying around.
