Autumn

Within what felt like the blink of an eye, summer was over and autumn was in a rush to turn into winter. I still can't believe how fast this summer was over and yet how much has happened! I have reached my goal of picking 1l of every berry - blueberries, lingonberries, raspberries, black currants…

In the Swedish mountains

On Monday, last week, I started my little journey to visit Michelle in Lofsdalen. I was a bit tired from the restless night, but really excited to see my friend again and spend some quality time. The weather was expected to be awful on that day. Dark and stormy, but she had heard about some…

My little winter roadtrip

Last week we had sportlov here in Västernorrland, so the children were on holidays and so was I. Well, not entirely. I was working on Monday, to plan some things and do paperwork that I otherwise hardly would find time for, but after that I had time for myself and I used it to travel!…

The last November days

It was a lovely bright saturday with polar stratospheric clouds at the sky that could be seen almost all day long but especially during dusk and dawn! But…

A period of warm weather

The temperatures have risen and frost and snow are long gone. Instead we have been left with wet/dirty roads, incredible amounts of puddles and ice still on the lakes with a thick layer of water on it. It does offer some really cool views, especially for thos with a drone. On one of the dark…
