The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain

My body has been giving me gentle nudges for weeks
and now even the weather makes me stay inside and take it easy!

I finally found time to make those pom-poms I have been wanting to make since May
and I have enough redcurrant jelly to feed a whole village!

The cat (who also doesn't want to go outside) is enjoying some sofa-company 
and I might just finish yet another book :)

Your heart already knows where your feet should go

Picking red currants used to remind me of summers in Sweden
last summer that memory changed to breakfasts with my dear friend Fien
Now it reminds me of picnics in the garden with the man I love ...

a very special someone who got up in the middle of the night and drove about 400 km 
to catch a flight to come and surprise me on my birthday (!!!)

Halfway ...

Time flies when you're having fun!
Especially when building sandcastles, trying out new restaurants & beating competitive people at minigolf ;)

It's a real shame Swedish summers are so short ...
In about a month's time the tourists will have left again and the island will return to its usual quiet self.
It's definitely time for a big adventure this fall!
