Hello from Sweden in the middle of the night #jetlagged! My plan was to post this in the morning, but I’ve been so busy with the kids, getting installed, a building meeting, friends and family that came, wrapping gifts etc. So nice to be here though and the flight went perfect. I’m so proud of the boys, that are so used to travel, but still, you never know!
Well it’s now 1am and time to make an attempt to fall asleep (6h time different if someone wonders).
Hello there! Raise your hand if you like to clean like me!! Sorry but for real, I think it’s relaxing and very satisfying. At least when I can listen to music and the kids are either not at home or are playing and are happy, like right now :) That can change fast though!
Everyone is home today, Oliver just had speech therapy in the morning, Eddie-Bo is feverish and has lots of pain in his knee, he’s limping and can’t bend it so well. I took him to our friend and chiropractor Marc, that explained feverish kids can get like a virus on the joints, that is painful. You always learn something new every day! Eddie-Bo got a treatment and got taped like a pro athlete. Hubby is exhausted and is napping at the moment… can his head just get healthy soon!!! That was today’s update on the family.
If you’ve seen my previous post, this black candle holder also got a makeover with the spray paint. And thumbs up for my blooming amaryllis – in a pot from Target and the bowl is from West Elm.
This is the spray paint I used, bought it at Home Depot for less then $4. Next on my spray list is a big vase.
Time for me to prepare afternoon snack and then play some board games with the boys. Later our babysitter is coming, and I hope hubby feels better so he can join for dinner with some friends!
Beautiful fresh flowers from Fleur Detroit, my favorite flower shop in this area. The black candle is also from there. I have to see if they come in more colors… It’s time to get rid of all Halloween decorations and now I’m starting to dream about Xmas… most wonderful time of the year!!
The pumpkin season is here and these green ones are my favorites! Yesterday I took the boys to a Bowers farm, where they cold pick there own pumpkins. Pictures to come!
I’ve been baking today and I’m now waiting for my Swedish girls to drop in for fika time!
Almost done, only a shelf or two are missing!
When we stayed in the guesthouse in the beginning of the summer, I was using this black rolling cart a lot. The kitchen table is really small, so it was perfect to load up for example the breakfast. A morning tip from me!
I see in this picture there is still some blue plastic under the hood, oh well that’s better compared having the plastic inside the oven when you use it for the very first time. If that happened last summer? Oh yes!!
An upgrade from last year, knobs from BeslagDesign! Work and look much better than tape :)
For the very first time I’m alone in our house. (All my boys went camping including cousin Melker!) I’m sitting here in the kitchen listening to Ed Sheeran and just enjoying some me time. After all light summer nights I think the darker August evenings are so cozy. Soon another two of Eddie-Bo and Oliver’s cousins are arriving. And I have to admit I’m happy to not sleep alone in the house… The music all of the sudden stopped and I heard some noise… I’m not normally afraid of being alone, but I had a mouse in the house the other the night that scared the sh.t out of me, haha!
