As time moves and the summer (in Sweden) passes by, I still find myself writing small bits and pieces. I didn´t continue with the classic literature course since I early on felt it was not what I wanted right now. I just want to write creatively about anything I feel like writing about. I journal. I sit with my writing projects and try to write … Continue reading Still thinking about writing
The time we live in have had me thinking a lot about the privileges I have in my life right now. For example such a simple thing as a safe home. It is very sad to think about how many people around the world that does not have a home, none the less a safe one. I have one. My family have one, we are … Continue reading What makes a home?
January is finally coming to it´s end. It has felt like 90 days instead of soon 30. Everybody keeps telling me “January is always long”, but I have never really felt like that before. In Sweden I always felt it was grey, cold and dark, but February has less days and feels as grey, cold and dark. This year though, January has showed it´s true … Continue reading Monthly wrap up
Finally, kids are going back to physical school this week! No one is happier than me. I usually do all the school runs so it means early mornings, but it also means undisturbed days and no mum our auntie shouting around the house. This weekend we have been preparing for school and making sure we have the most important stuff for an easy start. We … Continue reading Weekend of wood work and school prep
Time seems to be moving slow. So slow. Right now. Another second, minute, day, they just drag themselves forward. We are all still right in the pandemic and here in Zambia we are just in the slow down of the forth wave. That meant that the government pushed the school start forward, from the 10th of January to the 24th. And as parents putting their … Continue reading January funk
Just a quick check in. I am still around. Still struggling with burn out symptoms and still trying to get better. Still feeling like winter almost killed me, but that feeling is there every Spring. This year Spring is teasing us and delaying a bit too long but, we have had some beautiful days and as usual I am there with my (phone) camera trying … Continue reading Delayed Spring and snapshots
Hi! I hope you are having a nice end of the week and feel ready for Monday. I have had a better week, and am starting to feel all the benefits from my (on and off the mat) yoga practice. I sleep better, I feel less pain in my body, I have more energy, I feel happier and more confident in my own abilities. Burn … Continue reading Sundays with us
It has been a good weekend at our house. On Saturday we got the good news that Biden/Harris won! Finally the counting was done and we all could breath out for a bit. I believe in character and role models, and kicking Trump out of the White House gives the world hope. Having a leader with that much power being able to say so many … Continue reading Weekend at The Changalas
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
