Read More

read outdoorsOne of my goals for this year is to read more books. The last years I’ve logged my books on virtual bookshelves in GoodReader. And slowly (but surely) have the number of books I’ve read risen. This year my goal was to read 45 books. I was a bit worried that it was a bit high. (Last year I barely managed my goal of 40 books.) But. It was not. By mid July I had already accomplished my goal. Wow; I really have been on a reading spell these last months. Much thanks to cheep e-books and my new membership to Audible. Now I can work in the garden while listening to books. I love it, although MT shakes his head when I walk by with a speaker in my pocket instead of earplugs in my ears (I got a bit tired of them there for a while). A few weeks ago I weeded my garden while listening to a book for hours. Win. Win. Win.

Reading Books 2013

I read different changers; some make me laugh, some make my cry, some make me angry and some of them I have trouble finishing for some reason or another. I read light, romantic, suspense, thrillers, faith books, help books, real stories and made up stories. I read to learn, to relax, to be swept off my feet, for the love of storytelling, to regroup and to connect. Some are well told, some are not. Most of them I’ve read by my self, a few have I read (or listened too) together with MT. Click here to see all the books I’ve read this year.

Here are just a few of my recent favorites:

The Handsome Man’s De Luxe Café (No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, #15) Organic Manifesto (How Organic Farming Can Heal Our Planet, Feed the World, and Keep Us Safe) The Rosie Project Animal, Vegetable, Miracle (A Year of Food Life) The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe Notes from a Blue Bike (The Art of Living Intentionally in a Chaotic World) Enchanted, Inc. (Katie Chandler, Book #1) Happiness for Beginners The Island

Do you read books? I’m always eager for new recommendations, please share.
Happy Saturday!

365 photos x2 | January

My word for this year is STORY. I really want to tell more of our stories, small ones and big ones.  I will come back with much more of why and how I’m thinking it will be visual in my life, but right now I want to share with you two slideshows made with my take of the #cy365 and #fmsphotoaday challenges. Hit the play-button too see the January photos.

My goal is to shot 2 photos a day on my phone. Some days there will be many more, other days there will be only 1 – but that’s okay. I’ll follow the prompts as much as I can, but the main goal is to tell everyday stories.

Thanks for looking.

Sunday walk in the forest

hello sunday walk

The forest have been calling me. I love the colors and the light there.

light and shadows frosty forest

The thing is, I had to get out of our warm house and I like staying inside on cold days (well, also not-so-cold days too to be honest). Sunday I bundled up in wool and did it. I went for a walk.

My kid didn’t want to come, but my dog was more than happy to join my mission. I brought my dSLR with me to capture it all, so the walk was a slow walk. But, oh, it was a good walk.

It cleared my head and made me so happy + grateful for all the beautiful nature we have right outside our door. This year my mission is to get out here and enjoy it more often.

Thanks for being here.
Wish you a great Monday!
