High & Low

Posted by Claudia Moser on 8:03 PM in ,
After some tough hours behind, the day after did not bring any notable high or lows, thus decided to take the Halloweenie-Hodgepodge and share some thoughts with you.

1. What gives you goosebumps?

Unknown dogs, darkness and being alone in an empty house. And for sure the cold temperatures in Estonia during winter time. Believe me there is truly cold!

2. Halloween—are you a lover or a hater? Okay, that sounds harsh...Halloween—yay or nay?

Halloween is not part of my culture, I do appreciate the 'madness' and like to see the kids be happy. Europe is getting more and more open towards this holiday, but it still takes some years until we will get similar dimensions as in USA.

3. Can you respect someone you do not trust, and can you trust someone you do not respect?

No and no. Trust for me means to rely upon a person's integrity and character and that for sure involves mutual respect.

4. Apples or oranges? Yes, you have to choose.

Apples. Love them in any shapes, size, meal :)

5. What is something you wish was in your town (shop, restaurant, attraction, etc.)?

Would love a river in order to walk on its banks.

6. What non-food item is in your refrigerator or freezer?

To be honest none

7. Are you at all superstitious?

Sometimes :) This question reminded me of a cartoon which I would like to share with you.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Just realised how nice our home looks under the delicate lights of candles. Love cosy evenings at home, simply sharing moments with my husband.



My favorite was your last part. I love those cozy evenings too!

Lovely post Claudia, it's nice to lit some candles isn't it. Makes it all so cosy. Enjoy your evening.
Hugs x

@Laura - yes, just to cool down and enjoy the tender light!
@Eva - I hope you will enjoy your evening as well!

We are lucky enough to have lots of rivers and lakes nearby. Walks near water are my thing, too. I love being awake and alone in the livingroom, while my husband is asleep. We have nightlights in each room and with the moonlight shining, it makes the house warm and cosy.

@Kathy - that is truly very fortunate of you. In my home town we had a river as well, and the walks were simply amazing!

Enjoyed your answers. I also love the ambience created by candlelight!

@Desiree - very lovely light indeed!

Unknown dogs scare me too, and I'm afraid of the dark, but only indoors :-)

I also feel a little scared when alone in the house. Great questions and answers!

I would love to hear about some 'holiday' or custom that is more intrinsic to your part of the world and not to the USA. Something special to you and yours?

Loved your answers...and I would have a hard time choosing between apples and oranges!

@Sarah - indoors true :) for me as well!
@Belle - thank you my dear!
@Sush - I promise I will have a post about Romanian customs OK? :)

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
