My summer’s most relaxing place. Not much to do except some garden work. I still love to renovate and plan for that, but to live in it -Not my thing at all!! Hopefully next summer our new place will be done. I’ve said it before, all this building dust and our undone exterior are driving me nuts!
Yesterday we left this house and I say – until next time Småland!
Today we are having a well needed family day. I will take the boys to a theater in the afternoon, ‘Lasse Majas Detektivbyrå’. Our summers are always busy with catching up with our lovely friends and family (plus it’s been a lot with the renovation). I think we are all a little bit drained at the moment and we are looking forward to fly back to the States in a week.
A quick hello from the kitchen in Småland. On the shelfs lots of favorites from Mateus that I started to collect about six years ago. And this is my first kitchen I designed ten years ago, still love it!
This picture was taken two years ago, but it looks the same today. Eddie-Bo and I slept on the little loft in our guesthouse last night. The kids love to climb on the ladder to get up here, a cozy place! And yes I bonked my head once :)
Today we went back to our renovation house. I just felt when I opened the door that I can’t wait to get it all done. I’m so sick of all building dust, no fun! I hope to wake up in a better mood.
We are back in our small house in Småland. I think the size of our bedroom here is the same as my walk in closet in the States :) However I love this bedroom. One detail I really like is the white custom made curtains. We decided to use that instead of closet doors to save space, and it also makes the room cozy. If only my better half could close them every time… hehe…
Johan and Eddie-Bo went to the island Öland today. Oliver and I stayed here, and we’ve been having a wonderful day with farmor/mom in law and aunt Nina. We visited a farm (heaven for Oliver!) and stopped for lunch and fika!
Oliver is now sleeping and I’m waiting for the hamburgers to get ready. Victor and Lina just got here and we are going to play cards tonight, love it!
This place is special to me. It’s our very first house that we built about ten year ago. (You only see the guesthouse in the picture). The last days I’ve been gardening a lot, which I love. It’s so green and beautiful, love this time of the year.
Yesterday I brought the kids to their cousin August’s last day of school (skolavslutning!) for 1st-6th grade, it was in a church and they were all singing so good. It brought back sweet memories from my childhood. That feeling on that day, knowing you had the whole summer off, was the best!!
Eddie-Bo and hubby decided to go camping tonight on an island. Oliver and I joined for a boat ride. Love being on the lake, camping not so much :)
Earlier today we went to aunt Hanna and Sven! The boys were excited to play with their cousins, plus they have a basement. Two things Eddie-Bo said yesterday he misses! Cousins, basement and camping, what a day!
Now Netflix time, ‘Orange is the new black’ it is!
