Last summer

searching for crabs to catchcatching crabs

These last couple of days we’ve had kind of nice weather. But not nice warm weather, there seems to be a chill in the air no matter how much the sun tries to shine (#norwegiansummer).

I miss the nice warm summer weather.

Looking through some of my photos, I found quite a few from our visit to dear friends + the western part of Norway last summer. The first part of that vacation had such good warm days, almost too warm honestly. But I want more of such days: summer like we dream about on cold winter days.

Pretty please!

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!

Summer in August | Day 6, 7, 8 & 9

Summer in August | Day 6

Today’s rain storm was a heavy one, I experienced it mostly from the inside, with a few moments outside in it here and there during the day. This barn (of sorts) right by our current house (we are moving soon) has been a favorite to photograph. I think it is the color. And the stairs. It got to be the stairs.

Notes from August 6th above, and this is what I shot and wrote on August 7th:

Summer in August | Day 7

Our living room furniture as it looks right now before we move to the farm. Loving how the sunshine comes in through the windows, I love light. Wondering how everything is going to look in my childhood house – with my furniture in it instead of my parents stuff.

On August 8th I was back at the farm again for a few days (MT stayed put at the farm while I went back to the other house and while I worked this week):

He wanted to show of his mad radio helicopter steering skills. I loved to watch.

Summer in August | Day 8

And then there were Friday, August 9th, a really beautiful day! We spent the afternoon down by the red currant bushes:

I decided that we needed to take advantage of the sunshine and good weather by doing things that need to be done out of doors. So I told MT he had to fill a bucket of red currants. It was a long process – but we finished with two filled buckets. (But next time, please remind me of the many hours that comes after this – to make the berries ready for freezing or jam making. I had sadly forgotten). Next time I should use sun protection though, I got burned by the sun after hours out in it. It is still summer and the sun is still strong!

Summer in August | Day 9

I have more photos to share later on. Keep your eyes on the Summer in August category and please do share (in words or with a link to photos) how your Summer in August looks like (and if you do have winter where you are, share that!).

I’m doing my best to keep the summer feeling for as long as I can until fall takes over (and then I’ll do my best to embrace that).

Happy weekend!!
