April showers bring May flowers


As somebody once wisely said.

Busy and fun week ahead, ending with a workshop in the weekend. Now it's time to turn off the computer, lit candles, listen to the rain against my window and cuddle with my sweet cat.

Above are my chicks, aren't they lovely? An etching from year 1928 in original wooden frame.

My mum came home from Berlin





and I received a present.

It is magical with a tealight - it almost looks as if a breeze moves the fabric in her dress or locks in her hair.

Little birdie tweets





I have started the cykling season. A little later than usually, but I had my bike in for repairs and it needed a little more attention than I had expected, so it took some time as the repair-peeps are ever so busy this time of year. And why oh why did I not take my bike in for repairs in the winter...well, maybe I remember that next year. If not, please remind me.

Oh, look it's friday tweets the little birdie sitting on my shelf. It's made by my dad. I'm going to see a play tonight. Tomorrow I'm going to attend yet another birthdayparty. My friends keep throwing parties every saturday. I love it! Last saturday I attended this huuuuge wonderful birthdayparty with hundreds of guests, lots of perfomances and speeches. Tomorrows party will be much smaller, with lovely friends gathered.

Have a wonderful weekend dear friends!

Something to place plants on. And Håkan.





That was on my list.

So then I found this padded stool at the fleamarket. It has a wooden base. So I bought it and removed the padded fabric and it was ready to be used as "something to place plants on".
Not the most charming bunch of plants, I have to admit. But get back to me early june and I think I can come up with something slightly more appealing;)

And as seen, before and after.

I'm listening to Håkan over and over. This song just makes me fall in love. It's a little sad and nostalgic. I want to cykle fast fast fast and get out of breath cykling fast uphill and feel there's so much, so so much. Life!

Waking up to rain, groovy!





Well, that was one or two seasons ago since I last woke up to rain! Rain against my window. And that reminds me of this song I absolutely loved some decades ago;) So groovy!

I love rain!

Passion for longjohns





I went out for a long run today without longjohns! This might be the sort of information you could live without I assume. But, it does mean it is spring. Jeeeee!

The blurry lady above certainly looks as if longjohns were her passion;)

April weather





My facebook newsfeed was packed yesterday with comments of the sudden snow that started to fall in the afternoon.

You say snowfall - I say, that is April weather for you! It will melt. In fact that is happening right now as I type this!

New week, new challenges! I can still feel the yoga in my body, I think a few muscles needed the stretch...I shall stretch properly after my run tonight!

Above is my little Ampelmann on the go. I am not very much for souvenirs, but I have always liked this little fellow.

Above is my flowerlamp standing with a plant, as it if was in bloom;)

Is it weekend already?





I could easily be fooled if you told me it is only thursday today. But I checked. It is friday, so don't try to trick me even if you've heard rumors of how easy it is to fool me!


I am taking myself to yoga in the morning and meeting up with lovely colleagues and friends for a brunch.

Have a happy weekend!

Some wonderful morningsun above.

Snufkin in April





It has also been said, that spring has not arrived at the Moominvalley until Snufkin has returned again.


Well, Snufkin is back and that can only mean one thing, it is spring! Welcome April!
