Soon it’s time…

… it seems – to quit WordPress entirely!

Not only that I have other matters to occupy myself with, I have and I know more will come. Something closer to where I live and where I am in life.

Not only that I get more and more irritated over the “enhancements” that WP has brought on us for the last two years or so. And the difficulties to find relevant information.

What really bugs me, is this that once in a while shows up.
Yes! I was customising! I admit! I had changed the background color on a blog, which I’m perfectly allowed to do, and had just saved it! Then oops!

Shame on you WordPress! This is so rude, and so wrong!

And if it was even possible to customise something we haven’t bought the possibility to customise, it’s YOU who have made some error.

Or…. the thought came to me…
… are you really that stupid that you think this kind of remark is funny!?!?!?!?!?!

No WP! You don’t make me want to stay, nor even less to buy any kind of premium or other stuff by this. On the contrary! You make me want to walk away from WP!

And this message today – which I will point out a bit extra, wasn’t the first time it showed up -It was the last drop!

Just had some fun…

The day was so gray and dull, the day I went to Ikea. Thought the visit should cheer me up a bit. And it did! Afterwards, when at home again, I made these. The motif is how it looks like above the entrance.

Some kind of original…

Shall we keep on destroying the earth we are living on, or shall we start to love it and take care of it? Before we extinct our selves!

It’s supposed to be summer :(

… and this is the weather forecast for the rest of today

And for tomorrow – better, at least partly sunny, but definitely not warm

And this is in Celsius! Have absolutely no idea what it is in Fahrenheit… but that doesn’t make it warmer…

What would my landlord say…

… if I actually painted that piece of fence like this?

But I guess it would be easier on me, to make my life more colorful in another way. Like editing my photos into something else. (Or use some kind of fabric)

Anyhow! I hope my tomatoes will turn red eventually. That doesn’t seem 100% likely. Maybe some but not all. This summer has so far been too cold. Not enough sun and warmth. And today it’s raining!

At the same time it hasn’t been raining enough either lately.
“It can never rain too much before midsummer”, my dad used to say. And he knew what he was talking about as son of a farmer and always had a big garden himself.
And it has certainly not rained enough before midsummer this year. In many places it’s water shortage, and restricted how much we can water the gardens.

We are spoiled here in Sweden! We are used to have plenty of water! And some people are stupid, many times they even water their lawns. Stupid, since if anything can stay alive even after long time of drought – it’s grass. They just don’t want their lawns to turn yellow. It’s ugly.
Those people are spoiled, stupid, and can’t think longer than their own noses.

Todays rain! Actually! I’m happy about that! Not only because the soil needs water. I have also an excuse too stay indoors today. Don’t get me wrong! I never force myself to go out, take a bike ride somewhere, or a walk. I can hardly stop myself from that! But sometimes it’s also very good to stay indoors. To do other stuff. And so far I’m stuck in front of the computer. One post here… planning on another to the Small Kitchen blog… maybe som reading then… bake a cake for afternoon tea…

Tomatoes or no tomatoes, if they get the warmth and time they need too ripen isn’t the most important thing in the world.
But it would be very nice!

Can I do it now?

Can I start writing a bit more regularly?
Like – every day!!!
At least SOMETHING!!!
exclamation exclamation exclamation…

But what happened now, was that I thought I could find an image for this post – and ended up doing a completely new one!

FOR ALMOST TWO HOURS I’ve been sitting with Photoshop! With one single tiny image! Okay! It’s fun! It’s creative! But it’s not writing.

Well ! I did write “some thing”!

Treating myself

There was actually a Sunday recently, when it was warm enough to sit outdoors – even in the shadow – and eat something nice for lunch.
Place: a big woody park in the northern part of the city. Pålsjö skog – “Pålsjö Forrest”

My course this day: A gluten-free waffle with lunpfish roe and crème fraiche. Water to drink, and coffe. It tasted sooo good!

I got company after a while, since the place was quite crowdy. Two elderly ladies who were really nice to talk to. And since the day also was warm and sunny, it all became very memorable.

Unfortunatly, this last weeks it has been very windy, almost stormy from time to time, and not att all warm. When will the “real” summer arrive! What if it won’t be any “real” summer this year?
Well. at least I won’t sweat like a pig…

Queuing on the high way

It may look like nothing on the photo, but cars filled both lines as far as we could see both ahead of us, when we entered the high way, and behind. Luckily the whole thing could’ve been worse, we only had to crawl in snail-speed for 25 minutes. And 1800 meters…

The odd thing was, when the whole thing started to clear up at the next junction, we couldn’t see any cause of why the traffic was so jammed. No accident or such. Probably only too many trucks at the same time. There were sooooo many of them! And at this second junction, the high way splits in two.

Well, on the way home again, everything went smoothley.

Stockholm á la Ninna

Leaving by train…

… but I’ll visit again

Pure happiness

When visiting the aunt – and she still has the cousins old wooden trains…

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

It’s 8 PM and all is well

That is! The switch from domain-blog to a not-domain-blog seems to have gone fine. At least as I can see it from here.

Everything is still in place, and the only thing I don’t know for sure or can see, is if you still can reach me. There’s still the same amount of followers so I hope so. Now when I intend to start take photos again. And add here… in this blog…

Don’t know why I worried, but I didn’t know for sure if…

img_2458

 

I have made up my mind

I will remove ordibild.com. The domain, that is. Not the blog itself. So if everything goes the way I want, tomorrow the name of the blog is www.ordibild.wordpress.com (instead of http://www.ordibild.com.) So if you’ve lost me you can find me there.

rainday9aIf everything goes totally wrong, I’ll still be at

So I hope for the best, that everything will still be here tomorrow. All posts, images, pages – you! If the theme changes – that doesn’t matter. I can easily choose any theme I like. I’ll do this sometime today, probably in the evening. I have some tasks I will attend to during daytime.

rainday8aFirst, though, I’ll download an export-file if I loose any content in the process. I think – I hope – the only thing that will change is the name.  But I won’t know for sure until all is done. I guess, if I have to use the export-file to import the contents back, the featured images wont be featured any longer, but I can live with that. I think.

Why am I a bit nervous? After all, if it’s lost. it’s lost! It’s not the end of the world! Is it? No, it isn’t. I know that! But still!

rainday1aI wish WP would provide sufficient informtion about things, about what actually happens when you do this or do that. But no.

As very common, manuals are written by those who know, to adress others who also already know and also understand the things that aren’t written.

But thanks Godess this isn’t Google!


And the images are without any meaning at all…
To the text-content…

There is something on my mind

For four years now, I’ve had this Domain registration on this blog together with a privacy protection. In all 26 USD/year. I don’t want to have that any longer, I don’t want to pay anything at all to WP any longer. Not that 25 USD is the end of the world, but there are other things I rather would spend it on.

The main reason though, that I want to remove this domain upgrade, is that I think WP due to its “enhancements” has made blogging more irritating and time consuming. It’s not easier to move around, the “improved editor” is hopeless, and the app is… okay practical to use for scrolling through the reader…

I shouldn’t complain to much perhaps. Despite the “enhancements” WP still might be the best blogg-host, compared to other options – not  that I know of every option there is. (And as long as I won’t encounter wordpress.org) But I don’t want to pay for this upgrade any longer. It isn’t worth it! The only noticable and visible change is the name. With the domain this blogs name is: http://www.ordibild.com. Without it’s called http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com. So!!!!!!??????

And the privacy protection part? I can’t notice any difference from my other blogs! Maybe due to a strong password which I change now and then, and that the mailadress I have here, only is connected to WP and never use anywhere else?

But how do I do to get rid of it?

img_2386

I must say! It’s D.I.F.F.I.C.U.L.T to find information. First of all to find any information, second to find a clear concise information about this particular question. After hours of searching, the only thing I found was that I could remove ordibild.com, but nothing says if I still will have http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com? I think so, but can I be sure? Will I still have my posts and my images? Will I still have YOU – my wonderful skillful followers? Or will everything be removed???? All of it????

I have been pondering, should I instead manually delete Words&Pics the ordinary way? Just poofff bang bye and gone forever the entire blog? And instead focus on my other blog where I write more? The blog A new beginning? (Haven’t written much lately, moved to another city, you know, will be back on track)
Or should I just remove “ordibild.com the domain” and hope for the best! Taking a chance all the content still will be there and that none of you will lose me, and therefore I lose you.

Let me have a day or two to reflect on this a bit more. Somehow I’ll remove the domain. And I hope, if lost, we all can find each other again. There are ways!
I’ll be – if possible – at http://www.ordibild.wordpress.com or – if the other occurs – at A new beginning where I in that case will post both images as well as written some-things.

And after all – I’ve just started A New Life! In my original hometown! I’ve already reconnected to some of my old friends AND have met new ones! In less then three weeks. Sometimes it feels funny, awkward, to change what eleven years have done to me, into not the old me, but into a new me. So now I’m picking myself up, dusting myself off, getting myself together, leaving the bad things behind, embrace the learnt lessons-  and start my life again, new and refreshed. In a much better place,

That, I think, is a good match. After all that has happened and to all that now will happen. 😀
