365 – a project; Jan 17

created with wood and nail

I love Saturdays. A time to chill out and sleep in ;)

Today MT was invited to the birthday party of one of his friends from kindergarten. He had fun – and I enjoyed my time at home alone doing nothing more than update my project 365 and download some digi files ;) It’s been snowing the last couple of days, but it is slippery ice underneath – and it’s been to cold for the snow to stuck to it – so it’s really slippery outside right now!!! Hopefully we won’t break anything.

Tonight we have watched telly, talked, written words and letters (mostly MT – mostly impossible to read do to it being letters of MT’s own invention) and he spent some time building new creations with his wood blocks, nails and hammer. I love that he finds this so funny and it’s not as easy as it looks so the practice does him good :)

a man that do outdoor things

Since I had youth club in the evening I was at home during the day. I did a couple of laundry washes (about time!!), throw out the Christmas tree, was online, worked on a scrap page and drank some coffee. My dad came to watch MT while I was away. It was a relaxed day but I still was super tired by the time I got home from the youth club at 00:15. I guess I’m not a youngster anymore ;) lol

When MT got home from kindergarten he pronounced that he was going to be the kind of man that did the outdoors job – and then he took the broom and started working the snow :D He cracks me up! But I don’t mind him helping out a bit.

cupcake w stars

Since we invited guest to our house on January 14th we didn’t throw out our Christmas tree on the 13th as usual. Instead we said our good buy to it on Thursday night, the 15th – and ate freshly made cupcakes to celebrate ;) I then de-dressed the tree and throw it outside on Friday 16th. The Christmas time lasted long in our house this year!

guests in my sofa

This day we invited four lovely young girls to dinner. It was so nice :D They all work for YWAM (Youth With A Mission) and I admire their commitment and courage for doing what they do. In just a few weeks three of them are off to Milan for 4 months as short time missionaries. My hope and prayers are that they are safe and get to talk with people about Jesus; spread his words in a good way. The fourth girl I know better, we have been working together for a couple of years already, right now she is in school (with the other ones) – but when they go out she comes back her to spend her last months among the youths right here at our place :)

One of the girls are not in the photo, but here she is ;)

365 – a project; Jan 13


On Tuesday I was sick. The only thing I could do all day was laying on my couch sleeping. So I did. But after doing that all day I had to make some dinner for the two of us; I choose an easy option: corn, hamburger and mash potatoes. It was still good, and as you can see on the photo MT saves the best stuff to eat latest….(or how to put it in English) lol.

365 – a project; Jan 12


The weekend was (among other things) filled with scrapbooking, I finished several scraps – both for my scrap friend Jess Gordon and her new kit So Flirty (scrap is here) and for Pretty Scrappy where I’m on the CT team (scrap is here). This Monday, after a long day at work, I joined the blog train and released my second freebie (ever!), a 4×6 brag book QP – by now, almost a week later, it’s been downloaded 594 times. I’m speechless and thrilled at the same time; this is so fun!

The photo above is from Saturday. I didn’t take any photo this day and I’ve decided that when such thing happens I’ll use a photo that fits or that I like, rather than getting holes in my 365 project. Photos matter, but it’s just as important that I do this regular posts. At least that’s my view and I’m sticking to it for this year! :)

by the Christmas tree

Since a colleague of mine was sick I had an extra service at the church where he was supposed to be this Sunday. I brought my dad along to sit by MT since I want to bring MT with me to church. (I’m wondering how much help it is since he’s playing my dad quite a lot lately. Honestly I’d rather have him in the back sitting by himself, playing or drawing or something. But off course then he might come forward to hold my hand or something and I’m a bit worried about how people will react to that. He’s not a loud speaking kid at church, but he has some problems sitting still….).

After church my dad took us out to dinner and then when we got home he wanted to take a photo of MT in front of our Christmas tree to show my mom, since she hasn’t been here since winter kicked in(!) Off course MT had some problems with the concept of keeping still, and I guess my dad’s photo is just as blurry as this one – but it was kind of nice to have him there by the tree like that :D
