Happy Branko birthday!

Today is my father’s birthday and we have been celebrating all weekend. This post will have three galleries: of dogs, of goodies, and of our past year together. It’s not every year that you hit 77, currently the most popular Slovenian number: This year we are together on your birthday for a change, but throughoutContinue reading “Happy Branko birthday!”

Last photo of April

Happy May 1st, happy birthday to my other uncle Rajko, happy end of April, happy new moon, and happy beginning of the second round of the NBA playoffs! Today I spent with my visitors from Slovenia, who are travelling around Tuscany, and it felt really good. I can still feel the sun on my face.Continue reading “Last photo of April”

Day 22 & CFFC: Water

Seven rivers from here and there and some words as long as they still flow. Prompt 22: “In honor of today’s being the 22nd day of Na/GloPoWriMo 2022, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that uses repetition. You can repeat a sound, a word, a phrase, or an image, or any combination ofContinue reading “Day 22 & CFFC: Water”

Day Eight & Lens-Artists PC: Happy K9, bestia!

What a doubly happy day! My dog turns 9 and my poem is featured today. All my egos rejoice in the new poem. I was so happy and proud to see that today I’m the featured participant of this year’s NaPoWriMo. My yesterday’s door poem brought me this honour. Thank you most kindly! Today isContinue reading “Day Eight & Lens-Artists PC: Happy K9, bestia!”

CFFC: Bridges from there to here

I don’t have that many photos of bridges, thought I as I started to gather them. There were 50 in no time. Here is a (good) half of them. I like bridges – crossing them, looking at them, looking from them, the purpose and the idea of them. They are old and new, designed forContinue reading “CFFC: Bridges from there to here”

CFFC: Barf and leak

Ooops, I meant bark and leaf. Because Cee asks for it. That I’ve got plenty, but today more bark than leaves. As usually, my gallery is a blend of Tuscany to start with and Slovenia to finish. I’m not sure about all the tree species, but there are eucalyptus, pine, larch (I believe), sycamore (orContinue reading “CFFC: Barf and leak”

Hi, I’m Manja Mexcessive, this is my blog An Embarrassment of Riches and here are my 15 special places.

Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor

Since today is my grandma’s birthday, I’m taking you on a door tour through Maribor, her city, where my father was born. It is also Slovenia’s city number 2. We visited her often and I spent many happy times with her, but she died two years before I moved to Tuscany almost nine years ago.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor”

Last photo in November

This time I knew exactly what day it was as I was strolling with bestia. The last day. So I had to pay attention to the last thing. Here it is, Monte Amiata on the right with a fresh coat of snow, untouched. Bushboy’s rules are simple:1. Post the last photo on your SD cardContinue reading “Last photo in November”

CFFC: Boooooks

Here is a compilation post for Cee close to my heart, with my favourite books and book photos of the last eight years. Just yesterday, as I was reading my first Martin Beck novel, The Laughing Policeman, on my e-reader, Kobo, I realised what is wrong with e-readers. They don’t make me feel the sameContinue reading “CFFC: Boooooks”
