Let’s Internet!

Lili

Lili’s interaction with Internet has been pretty simple so far. She gets access to the YouTube Kids app, Spotify, and a few other apps and games we’ve installed on an iPad Mini for her. Shout-out to Sago Mini for some of the best apps for toddlers and kids!

But today, we helped her pick some clothes on an online store! We showed her how to use the laptop’s trackpad, explained how the browser’s back button worked, and that’s all she needed to get going!

It’s amazing to see how easy it is for kids to pick these things up. Still, I had a little proud dad moment tonight :)

It will now be a bit easier for her to understand what I do for a living. :)

On Repeat Today: Heart-Shaped Box cover, Westworld OST

I really enjoyed watching the first season of Westworld last year: it was original, well acted, full of suspense, photography was great, … And the soundtrack was great. There were some great original piano pieces; the main theme gives me goosebumps. The composer Ramin Djawadi also chose to cover popular songs from Radiohead, Soundgarden, or The Rolling Stones, and those were great.

It looks like this will continue in Season 2: the trailer used a beautiful cover of Nirvana’s Heart-Shaped Box that gives me goosebumps too!

Enjoy!

“Gorilla” Gardening / “Gorilla” Kertész

Kétfarkú Kutya Párt (two-tailed dog party) is a joke political party in Hungary. They’ve been mocking Hungarian politicians for years, and they keep doing just that for this year’s elections.

Yet this little sign, that I found in the park where Lili and I go to play, is the best thing I’ve seen come out of this year’s campaign. They planted red currant, black currant, mulberry, raspberries, thyme, rosemary, all around the park, as part of a Gorilla Gardening (sic) action to make our children’s parks friendlier and more beautiful.

Here is hoping that no one destroys those plants out of spite.

Joyeuses Pâques ! / Happy Easter!

Adri and Lili were busy this year for Easter: they made lots of little decorations to make Easter special!

Adri et Lili étaient très occupées pour Pâques cette année ! Elles ont créé plein de décorations !

Cooking with friends at Chefparade’s Cooking School

This is not our first time taking cooking courses with Adri, and certainly not the last. We always enjoy a nice evening talking about food, learning new tricks, laughing, and eating obviously. 🙂

This time around, we cooked mussels with parmesan and parsley, followed by warm goat cheese with salad, olives, and wallnuts, and a beef cheek stew (with lots of wine) with mashed potatoes, and crème brûlées for dessert. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Wait until you see the pictures! 🙂
