From good old times

Old times both because my photos here are old, taken 1 January 2009, and also old as nature formation. Well! Partly humans has caused its rough appearance by cutting stones from the primary rock (perhaps better use the word paleozoic?, the base is mainly granite and gneiss), then the nature has made its course of history.

I know very little about this area, and unfortunately I haven’t got any image with a better overview of it. And awkwardly enough, I couldn’t find any good useful image to borrow on the internet either. Not even Wikipedia! There was nothing!
Sometimes you really shouldn’t try to tell about something, just show the images… ūüėČ

Well! There is a stunning view from this peak out over the west sea, Kattegatt, and I’ll give you what I have. Sorry it isn’t more.

My edited ones…

… and some other…

… and this one I finally did find and borrowed. It’s from the local newspaper, Hallands nyheter 25 mars 2009; image¬†Johnny Samuelsson

Kept in order

Natures order?
Or humans interference?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Order

Strolling towards summer

who wouldn’t want
to stroll along a lake, a stream
or in the woods

experience the scents, the sounds
fill the eyes with beauty
be fully present there and then

and to get it all at once

Soon, very soon!

Those of you who have visited my blog AND have seen the Milestone widget, might wonder what’s about to happen. And now is the time to tell. Well! I could have done that earlier, but there have been so many things around me lately that I haven’t had neither enough time nor energy to put in for blogging. A lot to do at church with posters and other things – christmas is coming along with concerts and stuff – and these last weeks – also this!

I’m moving out of my apartment, and into a new one! Nice, huh!!!! (Oh YES!)

IMG_5893I know at least some of you  have read about my problems last winter, with leakage in the bathroom and mold, and therefore a lot of workmen here to fix that and renovate the entire bathroom.
Shortly: I guess that must have been the most stressful period of my life. Or maybe not, but this kind of stress WAS NOT FUN AT ALL! The illness I experienced directly due to the mold around me; the stressful almost 3 months when I couldn’t live at home, and probably most of all – the fear I experienced connected to this. How ill¬†can one become¬†from breathing moldy air for an entire year?
And I never thought before this experience, that it could be so awful to live in a friends house. I guess I’m too much of a loner (read: home-sick) to do that for such a long period.

So I guess one part of this is that I never got totally friendly with this apartment. And I still think there might be something wrong with it. No mold any longer! Of course! The air is fresh!  My bathroom is the best in this living space!  But there are still crawling around silver fishes in the kitchen cupboard sometimes, and there are still these funny looking spiders in the corners all over the place. Thin pale ones with long legs. I still have my vacuum cleaner prepared all the time.
And I’m still having a “cold” continuously going on. Especially in the mornings. Especially now when it’s not summer any longer.

womspeaker02So after a longer explanation than I had¬†intended to do here, I’ll now proudly present the fact that I now have got me a new apartment.

Sometimes when things happen, they happen quickly. Saw my landlords add sometime in the middle of september, had enough queuing points to have a good chance to get this apartment Рand as it happened (Lucky Me) I was the one with the most points! And I said YES! I WANT IT!

These procedures took of course some time, but at november 3 I signed the contract and from that day I have had practical arrangements to take care of. I’ve also started to pack my things. All my¬†books have¬†gone into hiding….

flatIt’s small, but excellently planned.¬†Light and bright! Huge patio, considering the smallness of the actual apartment, and since it’s a¬†one flat house with the apartments together in a row, I can also use the front side as a patio. Oh it’s so nice! It’s cute!!!

The bathtub is gone, instead a nice white tiled space for showers, and the Patio is now “built-in” with wooden walls between us tenants. Can’t remember if there was some kind af roof over it at all. Mostly open space anyway.

I’ve only been there once so far! And I don’t have many photos. After all! The women still lives there! I couldn’t go on with my iPhone and shoot pictures of her private things! I just took 2 in¬†the kitchen, one in the bathroom, and a couple of the view over the patio and the greens on the other side of the bars. Since at the first floor, I’m not sure if I should call this a balcony or a patio. It’s a mix of it. ¬†So that’s what the¬†featured¬†image shows. And here…. ūüėÄ

I used a screen clip here from a map on Internet, end then cropped and edited. The sun chairs and parasoll, the heart and the flower outside my new home. Cute, isn’t it? Small but gorgeous!

I love…

I love the beaches and the woods
and filling my life with colors.
I love to be present in the Now
and listen to relaxing Music.
Feeling the joy of being alive
knowing that everything is
just as it is supposed to be.
Love! Infinite unconditional love!
