Memories & good choices

This little fellow showed up in my Facebook memories. 5 years ago. Oh, I cherish the fact that I worked 80% and gave a full Friday for 5 years or so to my princes. Fabian and I had a tradition of a weekly fika at a café of our choice. A 30 min or so only for…

Slowly but surely

We are in the end of July. Summer has been present, at least during the last days. Slowly but surely does reality start kicking in. The Mr started to work again beginning July and I’m taking the possibility sporadic days and half days off. Kids has about three more weeks of summerbreak. But this week…

A day in the sun

If the summer would getting grades, it would fail miserably this year. Until today (or two days prior if we are to be precize). We, however, haven’t gotten the chance to enjoy it, until today. The was spent with friends. First at the local pool and the kids were more in the pool than out…

Summer is here

The Swedish of all Swedish things. Probably more Swedish than Midsummer is end of term (skolavslutning). I don’t think I am more proud to be Swedish than at this specific time.    New for this year is that our school had the ceremony on the evening rather than the morning. It was perfect. The sun came…

Longing

Saw these and remember and miss the summer.

Another day another doll…

Vacation continues and before the first rain hit we captured some more rays and crabfish, today we went to Laxvik.

Gone fishing

The Mr decided today’s activity. Fishing. I did what I love almost the most, take pictures without the need to deliver. But please do not be fooled by the idyllic scenes, we had a lovely time together on our excursion, but before and after we were haunted by the offsprings of satan. Really, think twice about…

Ahhhh Sunday

After a effective day (OK hours) in the garden I took the boys to the beach, while the Mr went to sleep for his nightshift. Oh, what a day it was. I had my first dip in the ocean. We ate Sam’s home made mudcake, drank elderberry juice (also homemade), played Uno, read aloud, built…

What do you think about?

What do think about when you run? Or really what goes through your mind. Today, once again Sweden showed herself from the best of sides. The day have been really warm and I waited until 8:00 pm for my 7 k run. I did stop for some pictures, I just had to. My thoughts today…

L as in looser and Louise

Mother Nature swung whatever magical wand she might have and presented yet another fabulous day. Even-though I was stuck in the office the majority of the day,  a phone call from my “oh, so wise husband” (yes, that is the verdict of the hour) changed the outcome. On his advise I played hooky and left…

Goodbye summer

For some reason it felt like the last day of summer today. The weekend has been really hot, really, really hot. And we have enjoyed it. Today we went to Kattvik and further to the nature reserve Hovs Hallar. And if it was, it was a good one. With only one dog it is easier…

More happy things and some false accusations

A friend of mine came to visit the other day. Just like today, the Swedish summer took a pause and the grey skies and winds conquered our country. But as we Swede’s live after they saying “There is no bad weather only poor clothing” (or no clothing in some cases…), we went out for a…

Die happy

Part of my happiness is to be mindful and seize the day. No, it for sure doesn’t happen everyday, but quite often and I would say it is because I look for these moments. Today was (and the day is only half over) one of these days. The weather was great and we headed for…

Today we (they) did it

Sweden is warm. Summer warm. 27C. We love it. Today the boyz took their premier dip in the ocean. I just dipped my behind when squating for better pics. Welcome summer!
