Garden update

Autumn is here and so is the time for harvest. Since I didn't have time for updates on my garden and greenhouse during the summer - here we go! I think the last time I updated was when I set out most of my plants. What an exciting time! In the spring, when I began…

Back in Sweden

After our visit in Germany, we took the way back on 2 days. We started driving in the evening of the 29th August, drove through the night, stayed with Tom's family on the 30th and drove the rest of the way on the 31st. We had a wonderful time in Kumla, it was a supernice…

Visit to Germany

Again a pause in posts. And I start again with a blogpost a little different than usually. As I had mentioned in an earlier blogpost I spent the two last weeks of August in Germany. Right after we returned the moose hunt started, we got a kitten and we were in the lucky company of…

Hot summer days

As I wrote before, here in Norrland this summer was especially cold. However we had a few especially warm days in July, where it was over 30°C for a few days in a row. My outside thermometer even measured above 40°C but of course that was in the sun on a day without any wind.…

My summer

This summer has been my first summer in Sweden. As every season this year has been my first living in a different country. Stating the obvious, I know. Truth is, I don't know where to start. I have been working a lot during the summer and enjoyed every day of it, but also outside of…

One night outdoors

The other weekend I spent a whole night outdoors, because I wanted to see how dark the nights can get nowadays and if there is some fog on the lakes. Tom accompanied me and we drove to different places to check out the surroundings. We knew that there was gonna be a huge amount of…

Another lake – Abborrsjön

Last year when I was in this area of Sweden in the summer, I had a little stop at a lake. and ever since moving here I was very curious to visit that lake again, because it is not very far from my home. It would have been super interesting to see it in the…
