The Summer Feeling

A few weeks back Karen of Chookooloonks told she wanted to make a little summer camp of sorts for those of us loving using Instagram. So each week (on Monday) she puts up a blog post with the word or theme for the week. She call it InstaCamp, and I find it such a good way to capture The Summer Feeling as we experiense it. I love that these photos are small snapshots into our life, just as it has been these last few weeks we’ve already been camping.

So far we’ve had these prompts: Sunshine, The Great Outdoors and Water. And here are my photos:

THE GREAT OUTDOORS

WATER

The very best thing is that it is so easy to participate; just add an # and the word instacamp (like this: #instacamp) when you post your photos to your instagram roll. If you jump over to Karen’s blog today you can see she featured one of my images from this week (that made my day!) – next week it might be your photo you can find there if you decide to join us at camp.
Wish you all a great weekend with lots and lots of photo ops.
(Btw: I just ordered a new BIG camera, can’t wait for it to arrive – but that is a story for another time. Now I need my beauty sleep or else I’ll be cranky mama tomorrow and that is NO FUN!)

The Esplanade Theme & A Hair Cut

Spring Rain

I’ve been working on my blog layout for hours tonight. Finally I feel like I’m on the right track. Now I can display photos BIG, like I love – I’ve been able to customize the with and hight of the header, post area and the sidebar (that it just the thing that makes someone like me happy!) – and I might even add a slider with sticky posts, I’m not sure if I want to keep it, but I can do what ever I want down the road.. Possibilities, people, that is important to have. Both in life – and in blogging.

Anyway.

Hope you’ll like the new look and please take a look around. If you find something strange, or something that doesn’t work please let me know! I still have a few things to tweak, but first some sleep and then a day (more or less) away from the computer.

By the way I got a new hair cut today, it was seriously about time – as you can clearly see in the left image above – and it was so good to get it shorter. I’m really bad at going to the hair dresser, I think it’s been almost two years since last time. It’s just one of those things I never find the time, energy or money for, but when I do I enjoy it.

I should really do it more often!

 

Updated Theme

Ok. So I’m thinking hard about beginning to blog again. I sort of fell off the habit. I’ve started by tweaking the look of the blog. And by doing so I somehow made it impossible to comments. Ops. That was not my intention.

I’ll work on this later, but for now just email me at limeblog with the regular gmail-ending :D Not that I think there are many of you out there with a pressing matter since this blog have been pretty silent since New Years, but anyhow.

Hope you find some HAPPY in your day. And thanks for coming by!

//edit: The comments are working again! But for some reason the comment bubbles at the right side of old posts does not show the number of comments. They are there, though, once you hit the post page and scroll down you can read them – no matter how much the counter says there are zero comments… I’m trying to fix it later on, if it bugs me too much, I’m just happy to have all my comments back. I love those and they make me smile. I think I have to write a real post soon :D , so I can get some more…

10 Things on the 10th | Embracing Fall

Missing Summer

Ok. I have to admit it. I miss summer. I miss the sunny warm weather. The lazy days. The living as much outdoors and indoors. I miss it for sure, but, I also love the fall season. And I want to embrace the right here and now, so here is my 10 things I’m happy and grateful right now:

1. I’m happy and grateful for my son, how he is growing, learning and having more and more faith in himself.
2. The nature is turning into fantastic colors. And the forest is filled with berries. We should go pick some….
3. Football season started again. And MT loved that, I love watching them play as well.
4. We’ve had several sunny days. Got to love that!
5. I can capture the beauty with my camera and look at in on a rainy day.
6. Come to think of it, some of the rainy days are kind of beautiful as well.
7. School and work are starting up again and the days have some structure.
8. We’re both healthy and non of us have caught the flue yet.
9. It’s still warm enough for nice walks down by the river.
10. September mornings are misty and glows with the first ray of sunshine on a nice day, I love them.

So, what do you want to embrace in the season you’re in right now?!

A Sad Sad Day

Today I woke up to the devastating news that more than 90 people died Friday due to two terrible acts of terrorism in our safe little country of Norway. So far it seems it was one man that did it all, but off course the police are still trying to piece it all together. And even though, thankfully, any members of my family or friends are directly affected by this tragedy – it still affect us all in one way or another.

It makes me more sad than I have words for to know that hatred can destroy so much so fast.

I pray for all the people directly affected by this, for all those that survived but have to live with what they saw, heard and felt during the shooting on the island, I pray for all the police, health and rescuing men and women and for all those giving warmth, love, strength, room and time to the people in need.

If you pray, please keep them all in your prayers too.
