We did. She chased fluffy thing around the mushroom.

Have a lovely week!

I picked this in our garden.

I am planning the menu for midsummer, I have friends coming over and hopefully we can eat in the garden.
I am going to bake a skyr cake. I tried it last weekend when my parents came into town from their summerhouse, and it turned out just as delicious as I remembered it (I have only tasted skyr cake once before).

It's summer, the garden is wonderful, most flowers are in full bloom and I even managed to get something to bloom inside;)
I am in the midst of selling my apartment, trying to pack and organize as I have a new job starting in august, in another town and I am, well, saying I'm excited is probably understating my feelings;)
Many of my friends are obviously sad to see me leave, but I'm only 1½hrs away and I am going to get myself a small house with a garden and a little greenhouse...it will all be very lovely - I promise!!!!

Yes. I have put my lovely apartment up for sale and I am moving!

I shall let you know more once all has been settled.

I have been very happy here and I believe anyone moving into this apartment will be as happy.

Change is good. I feel brave and I am proud of myself for beeing this brave.

Happy weekend dear friends!

Above is a knife I bought today, it has the name Hagar engraved. Not a very common name. I only know one Hagar. And that is author Hagar Olsson.

I have been listening to this song. Very suitable for rainy and windy and chilly summer days...

This country...

...has turned tropical again. It's hot!
No wonder I could  spot a few parrots in my flat...they are talking to each other in a language I do not understand;)
I'm listening to two very chatty parrots and  Coop and an electric fan whilst drinking water and ice-tea and trying very hard to consentrate on something that begins with w...but not for long, as I better hook up with a pirot and get myself a banjo and some whiskey and perhaps we'll get down to some real parrot-business!

I gathered small things that I have been given. I am one lucky creature walking on this planet and this line shows how spoiled I am. Reminds me of dear people in my life. So a warm thank you to Thomas, Aki, Kreetta, Virve, Elizabeth, Ulrike and Kerstin. 

I posted this on facebook, but I want to post this even here as many of my friends read my blog too.
