Right now


It’s icy and foggy and dark outside. I’m inside drinking my coffee. Trying to stay focused at tasks at hand. Missing the sunny days of summer like crazy. Made sure that I choose the cup with yellow stripes. Gathering energy where I can. Colours makes me happy.

Only one short week and Advent season is upon us. I’m not feeling it. Later today we are going to rehearse for the light service we always have at our church on the first Sunday of Advent. I love working with the youths, preparing who’s going to read what and how we’re going to do the candle light procession this year. Lots of thinking and preparing behind me and before me. It’s going to be good.

Fighting the darkness the only way that really works: by light.

Spread light

And colors.
Have a blessed Tuesday!

November -ing

And then it was November. Soon at the middle point of the month too. That went fast.

Friday evening

so much beauty outside. I love the forest, the sky – and the sunshine!

for Paris – for the world. #prayforParis

we can’t fight darkness with darkness, but some days it’s so hard to light the light. Trying.


the coming winter season will be filled with light and colors. And peace!

a bit of clearing and cleaning at home. Glad MT have gotten his room finished, finally, now it’s my turn. Hoping to sell our old house soon. 2016 we’ll become farmers… Probably.

Fall knitting

more wool socks. I plan to stay warm this winter. Would love to have a little herd of sheep on the farm and sell wool yarn locally. We’ll see.

Dec Daily 15 - a start

with December Daily products, inks and glue. Preparing for my favorite season coming so very soon. Also played Chinese Chess for the first time in decades together with my mom and MT. Fun. Hoping for a few more game nights this season.

so slowly and too seldom. Friday I got out there in the woods. Did me good.

novels from Jenny Colgan on my iPad. Listening to book Nr. 16 about Mma Ramotswe; The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency Series. See all my books at goodreads.com.

Oddernes church

Advent and Christmas season at church. So many good things ahead. Takes a bit of work to get there, though.

Fog season

a little bit blue and alone. And tired, always tired. Battling with a headache that won’t go away and with my neck injury; the stress of this season does not make it better. Sigh.

too much scrapbooking supplies. Ahem. Now on to the Christmas presents!

Diamonds in the forest

for my first batch of ecological fruits and greens delivered on my door step. Eager to see what they have for me. Hoping for some kale and onion. And a few oranges too.

a new Advent calendar using December Daily supplies.

God for my kid and for being alive.

Happy Summer!

Summer flowers Just a little note to wish a Good Summer!! I fell off the blogging wagon, but now I’m trying to get on again. So many stories and photos and thoughts to share.

Getting there My vacation starts in a few days and I really look forward to days and days to spend with my kid, doing work here at the farm, in my garden and other projects I’m hoping to get a start on; like bringing in a little more color to our life with a bucket or two with paint.

Tea in my blue mug I also want to read each and every day and get myself out into the forest for a walk; I feel so good when it’s done, but sometimes it’s a struggle to just #getout

Summer flower Blessed weekend!
