Ordlos Onsdag


My shopping finds

We had a really good day yesterday. What kept me through the day was Pressbyran (of all things). As soon as I felt down, I thought of Friday night.

We had been to the local "pizzeria" in our village and we stopped by Pressbyrån (the seven-eleven store). O and the children stayed in the car and I went inside to rent a movie. As I stepped out I just had one of those moments when things fall into place and you see the beauty of things. The pier just beside the shop was deserted except for our car. The sky was beautiful, still colourful, just after the sunset, shining in a blueish pink shade and I could see the black silouettes of the houses on the island further out at sea. The sea was completely calm, glistening beautifully and the air was so crisp and fresh.

I felt such a kick at that moment, I have been embracing that moment the past two days whenever I have been having a low moment. And it has worked wonders!

It also helps to think of the little shopping finds I did, before I left for UK. A beautiful kitchen shelf, some gorgeous kitchen towels and a pretty jug.

Ok, so not exactly wordless today, but this is never the less my contribution for today. To view more Ordlos onsdag contribution, look here.

Känner mina barndoms somrar möta mitt sinne. Det ljumma vattnet som strilar utmed bara ben. Doften av barnängens tvål. Vacker kanna!

En väldigt vacker kanna är det, om också inte direkt ordlös;-)

Yay for finding great things for the house! And for feeling a bit cheerier. You deserve to have some good luck!

Vad somrig och fin bilden, kan tänka mig att där finns något läskande och gott i kannan med!

Yet another proof of life, proof of concept, proof of you. I am still amazed about how you manage to share a feeling with a picture alone. it is an absolutely fantastic gift you've got there!

You are all so sweet, how can I possibly feel depressed after all your lovely comments.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
