A last pic from the weekend, the woods behind the summerplace we stayed at.
Some of my jewelry, mostly rings in a glass cabinet from Iittala I got as an graduation gift from R's brother and wife ♥

Plexiglass pieces in different colours, I got plenty of them in all colours! Think I've posted something about them here before last year.
Want to make something of them, last year I made a temporary, simple necklace. I might want to cut them into shapes. But how to cut plexiglass??

Do check out Sunken Treasure's new necklaces! I want!

Weekend 2

More pictures. Mosquitoes, more food and swimming. We didn't really eat proper midsummer food, just a little barbequing.
Patrik, our masterchef of the weekend had prepared some korean food like Kimchi, noodle salad, peanut sauce etc. It was so good!
Jan brought "surströmming" but I would NEVER even touch that, though I started to eat fish again couple of months ago. The awful smell is way enough!

Interesting facts: I spotted a "geotrupes stercorarius"(tordyvel in swedish) on almost the same place as last year;)

Weekend 1

This weekend has been so great! I had so much fun with the best, silly crazy summer "gang" ever. Always enjoy their company:) The weather was good, we ate good, went to the sauna and I took my first swim of the year;)

Bad thing was the mass of mosquitoes, they were everywhere..!

Sune moved to Stockholm yesterday! To my mom<3. I will miss him so much! But I'm going there in July so I'll see him soon again.

Happy Midsummer everyone! I'm going to my friend's summerplace as usual every year. See you on Sunday:)

Now I'll continue making my potato salad for tonight..

I got this cute little teasub from a good friend! So great, I love it;)

A new food blog is added: Sunday-suppers. And I noticed that all my links to food blogs/sites begins with the letter S.
Do you have any tip on good food sites? I just can't get enough!

Thank you so much for your comments on my health anxiety. I know that I'm far from alone but still feels very good to hear others stories..

I just got home from work, special event evening at the museum, don't know what to call it really. Now one of my sisters came to join me for a cosmo;)

Have a good weekend!

(can't believe it's already midsummer in a week)

Health anxiety

I've been hiding something but now I will tell:

I have had trouble with different things throughout the spring, especially my health.
Mostly due to stress and anxiety because of the physical symptoms I got. So many strange things started to happen in my body, or my mind..
I went through various tests, including a thyroid test. And it turns out that I actually have a little problem with it, so I've taken more tests and will find out in a week or so. We have thyroid problems in the family so it wouldn't be a surprise if I got it too!

I've also had an MRI examination of my head. That was scary..
And two days ago, I got a letter with the results. I had nothing worse wrong but they could still find something called "cavernom", which means something like a malformation of a blood vessel in my head.
First I got an incredible shock and panicked (the letter was written with long weird medical terms..) But after having learned more, it is apparently not dangerous. Maybe I have to undergo more tests and "fix" it, if the doctor thinks so.
Still random that they found it..if I hadn't done the MRI, I guess I never would have found out.

I hope it will come something good out of these months of feeling bad, that I finally get rid of my stupid, terrible hypochondria.

Anybody else who has health anxiety?

A quick hello!

Pigeons wanna get into our home, they're sitting outside the window staring in..

Now I'm on my way to work.. Just wanted to post my healthy and good breakfast this morning: A mix of apple, strawberries, whole wheat, sunflower seeds, linseeds, cottage cheese and a bit of yoghurt. YES!
I promise to be more active here.. Have a good day.

Rainy day, I allow myself to be lazy

Work at the museum until 16 pm.
Back home, I made oven-roasted potatoes + carrots and soy sausage.
Since that I've been sitting in front of the computer while the rain pours down outside.
Soon I will have a glass of wine while watching a movie,
work tomorrow again.

Have a good Saturday! Any exciting plans?

Yesterday was Rasmus 29th birthday, we celebrated it with a limecake:)

Today was really beautiful and warm again, I wish the weather stays like this..

From New York

I just got a wonderful package from Sasha today! It contained all sorts of little goodies. Love it all! When I opened it smelled so good of the all-natural fruit strips! Thank you thank you thank YOU Sasha! :)

I opened it at my dad's place, Sune was quick to check it out:)

Eating and sewing

Yesterday and today. I didn't go to the studio today either, ended up planning at home instead! And sewing.
But now I feel bad because I've been inside the whole day.. A walk seems like a good idea.

My sister showed me this today, haha!

Ines + Doris

I have to post these pictures from last Friday. I went to my friend's place for lunch and they have a new little member in the family, a cute kitten called Ines:) She's already a good companion for Doris the boxer! They were so cute, and the lunch was so good;)

Now I have to leave the computer so I get something done today. Off to the studio to start a new project.

A new week

Hope you had a nice weekend!
Something I've been up too: Cleaned and refurnished the apartment. It feels so nice and new in some way, even if we just moved the furnitures.
Now, the next project will be to grind away the polish from the floor and paint it white, grey or red. I'm sure it'll be white, but it would be cool with a different color.

+ Today I was at the dentist, just for a check-up. Haven't been there for 4 or 5 years I think..luckily my teeth were in good shape, no cavities, phew!
