Knäred

Last weekend we went up to Knäred. And fall is here. What beautiful colors. Buster had a blast hopping around like a maniac. Björn and I did the lumber thing getting all the wood into small pieces for the house to get warm.


Björn and Busterix.



Buster out on a walk on his own having the time of his life chasing after mice.


Have a great one

Wrong turn

From Klippan to Helsingborg, oh no. It was the wrong turn instead toward Stockholm. Hahaha… Just had to drive a few miles extra and then finally back to where all went bad. But without the turn I would never have taken this photo. :D



Have a great one and keep on smiling.

And now it looks almost new and shiny red.

Have a great week

Outside our window

How great it is to have Roses outside your livingroom window in the fall, and even greater when the Sun smiles upon them.





Keep smiling, every smile makes someone happy.

On a day out


We went for a walk in Sibirien. And at first there was small parts of sun, suddenly the rain started to fall pretty light at first like a drissle but then it came down on us and the wind turned to the stormy kind. When we finally came to the car we were wet and cold. Brrr...
But still happy as could be.

1000...

...that's how many photos I've taken since the beginning of June. So why haven't I posted any of them?

MY CAMERA is telling me it's BUSY simply to busy for me to load the photos onto my computer and so I can post it. Me and Canon are now in a mailing discussion of what the problem can be. And so far with no luck at all.

If you've every had a camera that is to BUSY for you I'd love to get feedback on how you solved it. My only thought it that it's feed up with me taking so many photos that it thinks a summer vacation is on order.

Well I do hope you have a great time and have as much amazing sun over your smiling faces as I do, and don't forget to keep on smiling

Ironic

Well this is a bit Ironic because of the Danish flag on top of Kärnan. Once a Danish castle and again it got to have the right flag on top. For those who know me well I do still think we belong more to the danes than to the Swedes. But I would have prefered only to have to call myself a Scanian. (Skåning) :D

Keep smiling and take care

pop-up

Oh I used to love these kinds of books when I was a kid...could sit and look in them for hours at a time. Remember one with small elfs and trolls and you could move them around and stuff. This one is so cool to. I wish I had the patience and ability to make one.
Maybe I'll make it a goal this summer.

Around Angelislands (Ängelholm)

I walked from the train station to our house. I just love how nature comes in all these different colors and it makes me smile. What an inspiration to craft after a walk like this.






Hope you'll get a great week.

Family time ... it's the best. (Båstad)

We went to Båstad and had a pick nick first a bit cold outside bur then the sun burst out from a cloud and it got very warm and cozy. And we ended up with about two hours in the sun before the sky flooded us with rain. Still happy we went home and had our little chocolate tasting.

Björn happy as a little boy on Christmas before opening the presents. He really wanted these. But sadley when we started eating them we realised they where almost all overcooked and a bit to slimy at least for my taste.

I just love this photo of Björn and Buster and how happy he looks. It makes my heart tingle.

So relaxed having a great time outside in the gras after chasing Buster around and around for about 5 minutes.


BUSTER have I ever shown his face before ?!? :D
He made all these faces when we sat down to eat. And offcourse I felt a bad need to take some photos because I don't have any of him before. hihihihi... yah yah yah...I know it's getting ridiculous but what can I say. He's my baby. :P



And who can say NO to this face?!?

As you can see in this photo the weather took for the worst and just minutes after I shoot this the sky opened like almost a waterfall. But we had the best time up untill then.

We went to this store to buy some chocolates. In our plans there was a need for tasting better chocolates and so we had different ones. Look at the photo below. There was; chilli, melon, pear, peach, salty, sunflowerseeded, coconut, strawberry and some others. All very good but I think both of us agreed on the strawberry and melon ones where the best.

I can recomend you to doing something like this a small but perfect chocolate tasting. It makes anyone happy and in great mood.

Have a nice one and Keep on smiling

A day in the forest and at the Rösslake

Had a day out didn't know where to go so first we went by the lake thought of letting Buster go for a swim but changed our minds to the forest instead, me needing to hug a tree or two. :D It's just the greatest feeling and you actually feel hugged back. Try it you won't regret it even if it feels a bit silly the first times.

How about this little guy. Yes I mean the tree. I just saw the face when we past it by and felt a need to take a photo.

DO YOU SEE HIM???

White eyes how convenient (if I only had a marker to finish it with black pupils) and the screaming mouth. How marvelous is this.?!?

This is the gorgeous Rösslake (Rössjön) a place I've visited ever since I was a child. It's so peaceful and completely fills you with harmony. Just what I needed a contemplation day and Björn loved it to.

Björn happy and enjoying a day of from any musts. Ahh... love his smile.

The forest and it's magical look. If you ever come to the south of Sweden you should go visit the northern parts of Scania (Skåne) and see all this lovely nature.

Have a great day and Keep smiling

All happy and frolic...



Björn fixed a great dinner and afterward we sat in the kitchen, and YES it looked a bit messy but still in my eyes wonderful because the great colors and the happy feeling. I love when your house looks and feels like people live in it and not like a home that is for show to others.

How about you?!?

Have a great day and

Out and about ... And some BBQ!

We took a day in the car drove around and just enjoyed the time together. And in the evening took out the grill for a wonderful meal and had a great time in the garden using our new wood deck in the backyard.

How was your day?!?


I just loved how this looked like summer to me. With the red house and the hedge all in green.

Out on the roads driving around the weather was playful both all in the most beautiful blue colors and also with the grayish cotton clouds. But we never had rain and it made it all so more wonderful.

Buster running like a crazy dog. Hard to get him in focus because his soooo fast :) this time it was Björn that chased him and that is his big love. Getting chased, he knows he'll outrun anyone.

The happy guy who is the love of my life.

It became a great dinner and I love having just a salad to my BBQ meat, mmm...
We had before this: asparagus, Parmesan chips and a crisp piece of bacon to it.

Some Buster loving here. I know I probably take as many or even more photos of this little guy than I should. But because he is so cute it's hard not to. :D

Last but not least a photo of us. Should have changed the camera a bit but we just took one and I love it even if it's red. Björn Love you alot.

To all have a wonderful day
Keep smiling
