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.

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.

Sunday in Sunshine

Sunset glow

Hello September Sunshine!

So glad for all the sunshine this Sunday. Now I like you better, September!

It’s autumn in the air, colder and crisper, but the sunshine made my day. I’ve missed it. Wanted to share a few photos of our day. Easy and relaxed, outside more than inside.

Thank you for showing you good side, September.
With the weekend off we really had time to enjoy it too. Thankfully.

Looking forward to an eventful week.

Happy week-end!

Opening pages | WITL album 15

Hello Wednesday

Yesterday I sent off all my WEEK IN THE LIFE photos photos to be printed by Persnickety Prints. I’m eagerly anticipating my packet to arrive here in Norway, but it will likely be another 10-14 days before I can hold the actual prints in my hands. Good thing I have a lot of things to do at work (and on the farm) to keep me occupied while I wait.

I decided to print all of my favorite photos from our week, the ones I posted here during the week + a few other favorites I found on my second look through. After seeing what Annette Haring did with her intro-pages to each day I wanted to go a similar route. The photos I’m sharing here today will be on two pages in the album and placed in the front of each day. I really liked this approach.

Once the prints are here I look forward to figure out how I want my album to flow. I have a few other enlarged photos as well, and I loved how Ali Edwards glued 4×6 together and included several photos outside of the pockets in her album.

So many good ideas around this project.

This will be the first time (hopefully) were I have a finished album to put on my shelf; it feels so good after several years of trying to move from the documenting process of this (and similar projects) to a finished product without success. This time it was fun to be a part of the “group” that wrote a blog post about each of the days, I’m sure that was one of the things that helped me stay on top of things. I also felt I learned quite a lot working in Lightroom editing my photos + making collages for so many days in a row. That is a new skill to bring to my next project (like the many weeks of Pocket Scrapbooking that I would love to do from this year).

Hello Saturday

This project makes me happy and grateful, as it has done the other years I’ve done it as well. An album in my hand or not; the photos taken gives me a glimpse of how much there is to give thanks for in our everyday life where I try to embrace the imperfectness, the tiredness and the gray/black days that also are a part of it all right now.
