Yesterday a parcel from Cologne arrived at my doorsteps. My sister sent it to me, and that was the inspiration for this post.  What was inside? Empty bottles to refill with syrup, I’m doing recently. A pair of pink leather sandals :), a lilac purse (I need a purse urgently, but I’m more into red, because of the superstitious Russian believe, that red attracts money.

The activity so unpleasant that you keep deciding that you won’t do that today – although you know that it will only get worse the longer you push it into the future.
