a couple of thoughts

I’m enjoying a day at home after a busy couple of weeks. MT finished football (soccer) school yesterday so we are both here. I look forward to NOT leave or place today and to NOT drive 40 K’s or more for work. Today I’m only here preparing a funeral tomorrow, thinking about the sermon for Sunday and getting the house ready for some company. Yay! We’re getting visitors tonight! We only see each other once a year, but they are GOOD friends and can tackle my less than clean house. But I will try to clean it up a little before they arrive. Just have to do a few other things first (like working out a few thoughts for tomorrow and Sunday).

LOL. This is a lot of rambling. Just wanted to chime in and say hello :D

Wishing you all a GOOD THURSDAY!

And btw Sweet Tomato Design is having a new kit in her store. A girly kit called Finley – she’s also having a huge sale.  :)

Hoping to have a page done with it by tonight…. or Saturday. Ahem.

365 Photo Project – week 7/52

O.k. I admit it. I’ve been trying out a few different approaches on the 365-project side of things, and I haven’t been absolutely perfect in any of them. But I’ve still had some fun and learned a whole lot about me, photographing and blogging. So I’m not afraid to try it ONE MORE time ;) This time I’m using my handy with-me-to-almost-all-places-camera; my cell phone. It doesn’t take super good photos,  but this is about preserving memories from each day and not about capturing images for wall hanging…. or so I tell myself ;) I’m using the ShakeIt app for iPhone to turn my photos into Polaroid (mostly because it’s fun to shake the phone and for the most amazing sound it makes… hehe). To make the photos more alike (kind off), I’m planning to use this approach for the next year. I might change my mind later, but I can live with that. I’m kind of used to being me by now and I love to change it all up from time to time. So I’m not making any promises…

Her is the seventh week of the project – in photos and a few words:

the clothes line on a rainy day

~~~ 43/365 ~~~

The clothes hung outside for days while I was waiting for sunny weather. It never came, so eventually I took them in…. (June 8th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sudoku

~~~ 44/365 ~~~

I always need some Sudoku at bedtime. I love to figure out the difficult ones, but sometimes I just have to sleep on it a couple of nights before I solve them… (June 9th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

the green and red and blue

~~~ 45/365 ~~~

I stopped by my parents on the way home. A beautiful day, and my mom cooked me dinner. Nice! (June 10th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Counting Game

~~~ 46/365 ~~~

In the afternoon MT found his old game and we played a couple of rounds. . (June 11th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blue Bell

~~~ 47/365 ~~~

Love to have a few flowers around me. (June 12th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

over the table

~~~ 48/365 ~~~

Having some fun with MT. Playing a sort of catching – throwing game over the table. Great to have the Sunday off and just be together the two of us having plenty of time to do whatever we want. (June 13th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

evening view

~~~ 49/365 ~~~

It’s been a lot of not so good weather the last week. Rain, rain and gray. It’s been plenty of this to think about and to prepare too, so this time I took my photo in the evening. (June 14th-2010)

SEE YOU NEXT WEEK! Or follow me on Flickr more or less everyday.

Updated…

So I might have been a bit sleepy this morning. Or maybe it was just wishful thinking?! Anyhow I managed to put out my week 6 post (of the iPhone Photo Project) – with photos and word from week 5(!) That’s the danger of being lacy and just copying the stuff from the week before; editing the photos and word as I go down the list of days….

But it’s fixed now. New photos. New words. All originals of week 6/52.

Come take a look (while I take a break and clear my head)! LOL.

looking for me?!

a sunshiny day

Gorgeous red

It’s been a week with mostly rainy weather. So glad to see the sun and blue blue sky around it. We’re up early to set the day off in a good way. MT is in his last week at school and vacation time has just started at work, so more to do for me…. (but then I have 5 week summer vacation to look forward to, so not to bad a deal!). Lately I’ve been trying to catch up on a few things. Both with blog posts, scrapbooking and organizing my home and life. I wish I had a few more hours in a day, but still good to see some progress.

Just a few thoughts for today, got to run – lost of work awaits me. Hopefully the invitation to Confirmation will go out today! Can’t wait to meet all the new wonderful youths come August.

Wish you all a beautiful Tuesday. No matter what the weather looks like ;)

Playing a bit catch-up here, but her is the sixth week of the project – with photos and a few words:

Lama

~~~ 36/365 ~~~

On our way back from the football (soccer) matches this week. We drove by this farm with lots of Lamas. I think they are the coolest animal, and I’m so glad to finally just stop and take a little photo. (June 1th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Canoe

~~~ 37/365 ~~~

I wish I was out there on the tiny lake in the canoe. It’s so much fun, and it’s been far too long since last time!! (June 2nd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lilac

~~~ 38/365 ~~~

I brush by this bushes everyday on my way to and from the office. The smell makes me stop and smell it once more. Love it. And the blue sky makes me happy too. Bright shiny early summer day. (June 3rd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cool Skies

~~~ 39/365 ~~~

Today I learned something new that makes me really happy!
MT went to visit some friends from school. When I went to get him home I was invited on cake. So nice. We stayed into the late evening, enjoying the company. Nice to get to know new friends. When we finally were able to pack our selfs out of there we saw this fantastics clouds in the sky. Loving how the sun gives it gloving stripes. (June 4th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bare Feet

~~~ 40/365 ~~~

For a while there I got to be bare feet in the grass. Loving the summer feeling. Have really been enjoying the warm summer weather as of lately.

Had my first wedding in the stave church. (June 5th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Me

~~~ 41/365 ~~~

Me in the mirror. That’s a thing I like to do from time to time.

I had two services this day. One in the stave church – and then one in the afternoon at our local church. It pretty much took all day, but I got time to play a little with MT and ate some delicious dinner ;) (June 6th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mogeno

~~~ 42/365 ~~~

In the early afternoon MT ran over to our neighboors to see if anyone wanted to jump in the trampoline with him. He soon came back and told me that he had no time for jumping, he had to watch a show at our school with E. Mogeno. I had completely forgotten all about it, and even though I mostly felt like staying home the rest of the evening, I knew he’d love the show. So we did. And he loved it. Mores surprisingly; so did I. (June 7th-2010)

Keeper

~~~ 29/365 ~~~

Another Football Match Tuesday. This time he got to try out being keeper; and he loved it (most of the time). (May 125th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

By the sea side

~~~ 30/365 ~~~

I went on a little trip with my colleagues down to the sea side. Nice. The walls of the room where we stayed were paper thin – and we girls had to keep our voices down… Not so easy. LOL. (May 26th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Old Biky

~~~ 31/365 ~~~

My dad brought me my bike. Nice to see you old fella. One of these days I’m going to give you more air for the tires. Then we might get going somewhere. Lots of great bike trials around here! (May 27th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Living Room

~~~ 32/365 ~~~

Ah, not a paper on the floor. Pure bliss. Our living room as of late May (May 28th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pokal

~~~ 33/365 ~~~

We went to a football cup in the neighborhood. The team did some really good matches, but lost a few as well. MT was keeper the whole time and did well, even though he didn’t catch them all. He was a bit down about that, but we figured even a super good keeper misses a few balls now and then – and he’s just seven and new to this keeper business – so lets not aim for the sky. He loved the price, though, it’s proudly placed on his window still. (May 29th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tumbling around

~~~ 34/365 ~~~

He was trying to kick the football while standing on his hands. I have no idea why ;) (May 30th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Home from School

~~~ 35/365 ~~~

Once a week MT goes home from school. Because of the big road he’s not allowed to walk here alone – so I go and meet him. Today he made a run for it. (May 31th-2010)

365 Photo Project – week 4/52

Playing a bit catch-up here, but her is the fourth week of the project – with photos and a few words:

After the game

~~~ 22/365 ~~~

A big day. Playing his first two football matches of his life. Jumping all around the football field out of pure joy for the game. (May 18th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Only 4 more minutes please

~~~ 23/365 ~~~

Today was sunshiny and warm. Some afternoon showers came, but not much. MT was eager to start his football training and brought his new ball since I was in a meeting and he had to wait for me after the training was finished…. (May 19th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then the rain came

~~~ 24/365 ~~~

It started out this beautiful sunny day with warm, warm weather. I was so happy to hang the laundry outside and did a little bit of that and a little bit of this, sorting my mind after a busy week. In the early afternoon I started sewing on a gift project when suddenly a thunder storm came. I jumped to my feet, closing down all things computer and telephone. Then I was ready to jump out to save the laundry and the rain started pouring down and I got soaking wet trying to save my now really wet laundry (note to self: next time let it hang, the sun is bound to come back sooner or later). It rained hard for a while. I almost forgot to get MT home from school. (May 20th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

View of the river

~~~ 25/365 ~~~

Today we had White Sunday service in church with the youths of our neighborhood (ages 6 to 15). It was nice :D (May 21th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Shopping List

~~~ 26/365 ~~~

MT helped me write down what we needed at the store. He added a few things on his own too, like lots of candy and a magazine with toy gift. Then he drew a few faces and wrote important above. I love that he’s starting to put the words together and hope he can find a way to write down all the stories he love to tell :D The day was spent cleaning the house and chatting away on Designer Digitals (at least I did), MT was outside playing and spent some time in front of the TV too. (May 22th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bare feet

~~~ 27/365 ~~~

White Sunday was glorious in more ways than one. After church we spent the day relaxing in front of the computer + in action out on the lawn playing football and such. So nice to spend time together. In the evening we moved our beds upstairs and to the bedrooms far away from the morning sun ;) MT was not so sure if he liked the idea of moving bedroom, but when the bed was in place and he got to decorate with his favorite things, he had some great fun. And he told me he slept really well. (May 23rd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

New Room

~~~ 28/365 ~~~

The heath and the early morning sun made us move upstairs. At least for the summer. MT got to use his new bed covers that he got for his birthday and was a happy camper. This is after the first night. Later I hope to paint this room and make a few images for the wall. But so far it suits him just fine. (May 24th-2010)
