Hi you all! How are you doing? How was your week? I had a bunch of bad days this week. Last week was good, and this one was not. Last Sunday things felt so good, I felt inspired and pretty energetic. This week I have been tired, anxious and had head aches. I know that the whole thing with recovering from burn out is that … Continue reading Doing the yoga, burn out and stuff
This year has given it fair share of challenges. Right now I am sitting in the sofa watching the news about the election in the USA. It is very close and probably the results wont be done until later today. But does that even matter anymore? It is disappointing to me that it even has to be a close race. Is it so hard to … Continue reading Welcome again
What do one do when everything is just falling out of control? And keeps falling and falling? Falling way down, giving you the feeling like you have to start over from the beginning again? Starting from scratch all over. That´s how 2020 feels so far for me and I have not much more to say about it. I do have a lot of feelings about … Continue reading 2020, whaaaat?
Can´t take much credit for this garden but am still going to brag a little bit about it. Or I wont write so much about it, maybe just leave the photos here to look at later this year when it is getting cold and harsh and grey and unfertile, and did I mention cold? I leave them here like a mental memory, a note, an … Continue reading Summer garden update
We have summer weather now. All this talk of weather, the controlling nature of its matter. How it changes moods and affects bodies. Weather in Sweden is everything, and nothing. Nothing to rely on. Sometimes I let myself wonder how we would be as a society if we had good weather all the time. Scary. But right now weather is good. This week we are … Continue reading Always this thing called weather
In Sweden April is the last month of “it can be winter again all of a sudden” and I am not in the mood of arguing with winter clothes, shoes, hats and cold cars in the morning anymore. So I have to just survive it. Soon, soon, soon full out spring will be here and all of a sudden it is summer. So I have … Continue reading Three things I do to survive April
We have a garden again! Not attached to our house and not in the perfect climate of Zambia, BUT it is a place to grow things! In the small town we live we found a small community garden with the possibility ot rent a 50 or 100 squaremetre plot and Mayani wrote them an email as soon as we moved here in November. And now … Continue reading We got an urban garden again.
Sometimes I feel like I am addicted to change. Like if something is too common, if I am getting tou used, that I deeply crave change. Like life changing changes. I am not talking about buying a new deodorant (that I do regularly). I wrote in May that I needed roots. Or thought I needed roots, I don´t know about that anymore. Or is it … Continue reading Change. And Karin Boye.
I was supposed to write a blog post last Friday. I had the day off and the whole weekend a head, so a nice long three day weekend, but I just could not write anything on Friday. I woke up feeling terrible. Drank my coffee and watched some TV-series about deadly traumas (Critical) and then I reached for my phone to check on Instagram and … Continue reading Last Friday and beyond. Or where to start to change the narrative.
I am finally back at work! Started with a weekend full of evenings. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. To work weekends comes with the job description when you work as an ICU nurse. Sometimes it really sucks to work when everybody else is off, especially when you are invited to parties or other fun things people do on weekends (what do people do really?). But most … Continue reading Once a nurse, always a nurse….
