Dear friends, I have neglected you. So sorry about that. It’s not intentional though, time just seems to go by so fast. My holidays are due in a week’s time but I can’t quite grasp the fact that it’s actually July. If you ask me I would swear that it is the beginning of June still….

So here is a quick update of what has been going on in my life since last time I wrote….

My youngest daughter graduated school. Next stop High School!

I knitted and wet felted a shawl for a colleague that is retiring. Do you know why I chose to make her a shawl? Well, when I was very young I worked at a nursery home during my holidays. I cared for an old lady there and she always told me “dear girl, live you life, spend all your money and have a ball. When you are old the only thing you need is you memories and a shawl to keep you warm”. So I decide that if I made my colleague a shawl she could concentrate on having a good time!

I celebrated Midsummer with my family. You know, the weekend when we Swedes drink aquavit, dance around a pole with flowers and sing obscure songs. Not aquavit in the daughters glasses of course….

I found a statue from Goebel that would be SO perfect for the country house. I will just have to convince the rest of the family….

Last but not least I have tried to enjoy the moment! Nature being so very beautiful at this time of the year.

Until next time....

Take care
