Same ole sh*t, different day?!

I don't know - some weeks are that much harder than others.

Yeah, I'm talking about work... a big "no no", so I'll stop!

How about the weather, eh?
The weather is a "hot" topic in Scandinavia, mainly 'cuz the weather is not mostly sunny and hot, I suppose?
Well, if summer rained away, autumn seems to shine on!

Spoiling us rotten: the sun.

Same ole, same ole!

I'm pleased with my ability to suck it in.

Noticing splendid things.

The fairly new rose bush got plenty of rain and now sun and so it grows!!

Come Sunday, I'll make grape marmalade!

Enjoy the sunshine, Mickey!

Mantras for sale
It sure is extra special and extra marvelous to enjoy the tiniest things, when the work week is hard.

When you in the morning create the mantra:
-When I see this path/plant/fence next time, the work day will be over and I'll be walking home. THEN I'm free and then I'll enjoy like crazy!

Ooops, there I went again.... sorry!

Something to long for, to see again.

Yeah, they're still going strong!!
My new autumn favorites.

Morning dew, awesome to walk upon.

Morning dew, under my foot.

I and  in the lower right corner: my son.

This strawberry plant seems sure it's July...

Heaven in a leaf.

You know what?
I have a grand week, despite it all! I have enjoyed the sun on my face intensely and I have treasured all those favorite moments that lacked hardships. I have been blessed with evenings - a whole lot of evenings and that's great, since I'm an evening-lover!

Instagrams for you:

According to tradition: an non-instagram, for you... 
I lay ill during my visit to the old son.

Nothing to be done about it.

As I said earlier: still very happy!

Seeing The Boy again was heart warming, of course.

Lying ill in my own bedroom.

The Hubster bought us a new TV, for the bedroom.

My glorious love!

Loving the most gorgeous boy.


Morning sunshine in Scandinavia.

Bright morning light.

A new little cave for the dog, where he's safe from puppies.

Evening snuggle.

My boy picks chestnuts as if it was a full time job!

The Dog resting in my suitcase before I unpacked it (still haven't!)

What a wonder! 
Walking to pick my boy up, after school Thursday in warm summer-like sun.

Bless you gorgeous autumn, we love having you here!

Well endings
They say all is well that ends well.
Today I'll end my work week and I'll be d*mn sure to end it well.
Here's to Friday! TGIF!!!! (yeah: same ole shit, different week!)

Waking up to a boy singing...

Isn't that just heaven sent?
Waking up I see a boy sitting on the floor telling me he loves me and that I'm the best thing he knows!
Waking up I hear The Boy singing a cute little song right beside me.
Waking up is good!

Another great thing about autumn is that I start longing to cook and do cook a lot!

A romantic couple, in love.

Cooking, getting into the mood by these.

Fika time!

And now our tiny faux (ethanol) fire is being used almost daily again!

So, what else is new?
We're being invaded by mosquitoes these days and I guess it comes from all the raining that has been the current weather of choice?! Even though we're really careful not to have doors or windows open, they still manage to get inside. I can't remember ever having so many mosquitoes inside. Annoying!
The dog doesn't go for them either, I think he considers them too small and not a sport at all...

Would you take a look at that dog?!!

Waffles for dinner was appreciated by the boy!

A perfect Tuesday dinner.

Grape marmalade?
Does anyone know if it's possible to make a tasty grape marmalade? Our grapes are getting close to the end now and I'd like to capture them for a much colder day and then get a taste of summer, via them.
Please do tell, if you have any recipe at all - apart from wine which I have no intention of making - for what I could do with them!

Since I wasn't feeling well, seeing my oldest son, I only got a handful of pics. 
Here he's making a drink for me!

I am a flash-refuser, since I dislike the harsh light, hence blurry photos
but with moods in them...

The best breakfast all year.

It was cosy and warm in the heart.

Even if I could only have tea for breakfast...!

Oh, my goodness how I love. How I love! I'd get the moon down in a heartbeat...

And even if the sky was a little bit greyer leaving him...

... I know this autumn will bring us back together again.

Ships honking their horns
And so the circle's so darn closed, somehow. Summer's gone, like it was last year when all of us had moved in, gotten the furniture in and found time to rediscover each other.
A year has passed and we're now busy getting "in" to our lives here.

I love the planes that fly over our house during the weekends in the summer (and autumn) - small planes, private flyers and they feed my dream of one day flying myself.
I love the ships honking their horns as they leave for distant shores in countries far away.
I love that spring is early and autumn is late.
I love always feeling the scent of the ocean, whenever I step outside.

And yet again I'm so grateful for my ability to love. It's the best ability I have!

Have a great Wednesday, y'all!
