Farm House | DecDaily day14

AE_DecemberDaily2013PromoI love Saturdays. They’re my favorite days, even on those where I’m not feeling all that good as I wake up.

Mostly because I get to sleep in and goof around for a while in the morning. But also because that is the only day where both of us are at home. We tend to do a few things together; eat, talk, watch a movie, walk in the woods, take photos and more! In the early afternoon we visited my parents and ate leftover dinner, after MT had spent an hour outside playing in the snow.

Sunshine over snow

AE_DecemberDaily2013Promo I really was not inspired to document my day yesterday (as you see I did it anyway, but not with my dSLR) – I am glad I snapped these they tell what I want to remember from this Friday in December:

* the day had lots of sunshine
* the snow is still in place
* I love seeing the tracks of skiing/snowboarding/walking in the snow
* we ate well in the evening; one of MT’s favorite meals
* MT won several times on the numbers he bought
* and I got to sing Christmas songs out loudly

Advent light | December day12

AE_DecemberDaily2013PromoThursday morning I made MT hot cacao before he left for school. I wanted to spend a little cozy time with him. The days lately we have been busy and I haven’t been home much and this day was no exception. Right now I wouldn’t mind buying myself some extra time in my day – but still it’ll be all right no matter how much (or little) that gets done this month. Trying to live in the moments and savor the meaningful ones. Those that give something to me and our life.

The hot cacao was a tasty treat to start the day off good.

I’ve been singing this song (in Swedish) by Carola (and Erik Hillestad) all day long:

So beautiful – hope it’ll give a little light to your Advent day as well. Thanks for coming by.

Getting the skis on | December day11

AE_DecemberDaily2013PromoThis Wednesday morning MT decided that he did not care for walking down to the bus stop and getting his boots filled with snow. He wanted to ski down. And so he did. I’m so proud of him for setting off on the still quite dark morning. He’s on his way gathering K’s for his chart, maybe he’ll get more than 200 K this season?

After that the day was a blur of devotions, meetings, driving, classes and preparing for the services ahead. I would like to say I have control, but that would not be completely true. Hoping for a few quiets days next week to get it all in line.

MT and friends | December day10

AE_DecemberDaily2013PromoOh, Tuesday, you are so full of work (and school). I spent most of it in church, with several meetings and a service too. I’m no fan of long days, but this week it’s all there is. Gathering strength. In the evening I went to MT’s school to watch the show they put together. It’s good to see how much MT likes his school and to see him together with his friends there. It’s been quite the change for him with our move, but he’s doing so well with it all. Still misses his old class buddies, though, but that is a good thing – he’s lucky to have good friends both there and here!. I have more photos from tonight for my album, but most of them include too many other kids faces…

My view | December day9

Monday is my special day. It’s the day I have most to my self all week long.

AE_DecemberDaily2013Promo It’s the day I relax, get things done, reflect and regroup. I especially like the first part of the day, before the stress of the coming week gets to me. Today I spent a lot of time before the computer, going through my photos from the last few days. Good times.

I went out to walk our dog – and laughed so hard of his love for running fast; he can hardly make the turn as he flees between the two houses on the farm. I brought my camera outside to capture him and a few other glimpses of life and weather right now.

What I loved the most today was having the house to myself. That and the twinkle light. And the snow. For sure the snow, on this side of February I’m all for it.

December | Day 8 | 2013

Happy tree hunter AE_DecemberDaily2013Promo It’s Sunday and MT challenged me to find something fun to do. I did. We went on a Tree Hunting Mission. My first thought were to drive in our car up closer to the mountain, but then the snow made that not so easy. Then I figured that we could go out and look for a tree in the woods around the farm, I was not planning on any chopping – but MT insisted on bringing his ax. He wanted to chop down a tree today(!) So off we went – and after a bit we found the perfect little tree which MT got to chop down and bring with him back to the house.

I’m including a bunch of photos today. Most of them I took with my dSLR before we went on our walk, I did not dare bring my camera on a hike in the snowy woods – so I used my cell phone to snap the photos there. 

MT was right – this was a fun thing to do, and now we have a tree in our kitchen, making it look and feel all the better. There are still plenty of messes around here, but we are for sure on the right track. Twinkling light does help a lot; makes it feel like Christmas instantly!

I did the wording online in Avery and am not happy with how it turned out – I had so little control over the look of the text – and will do it over in PSE before I print this for my album. It’ll have to do for now, though.

Thank you so much for coming by. Happy Advent!
