Coffee and Spring Flowers



It's Saturday, and the sun is peeking behind the clouds ...
Another week has gone by - one day after another:

Seizing the moments - being present at work ... From 'Good Morning' til 'See you tomorrow!'

Feeling the wind and the air and the fresh scents of the spring on my way home.

Since January I have skipped, after the work, these obligatory "I should's" - and have given space to "Right now I feel like's" ... That is, resting [procrastinating] with a good conscience. We'll eat dinner together and share chores alright, but anything besides that would be a lot. The need of not "doing" anything else, not having things in schedule after 5 pm., is worth taking notice of. 

At the moment I enjoy listening e-books - from the library services like e-reolen, via the Audible -App, or the Kindle audible. The latest audible books have listened / am listening at the moment are: BrenĂ© Brown: The Gifts of ImperfectionAlli Worthington: Breaking BusyLisa Unger: Die for you and Tami Hoag: The Bitter Season (I need a good crime novel every now and then.) You Version - Bible app has also an audible version, together with many different daily devotions.




Spring flowers - daffodils, tulips and tiny hyacinths - bring about the feeling of spring inside. I look forward of finding the first pussy willows by the lake - that is a clear sign that we're getting close to Easter.

The other weekend I crafted a very simple pot decoration, with linen cloth and simple package thread. The green linen cloth is at least 14 years old - I did sew trousers and anoraks to our boys using this fabric, when they were toddlers ... And I haven't thrown it away - linen is just a wonderful fabric, and I do like the color.

Editing photos and playing with textures and stamps is also something I find inspiring and relaxing. The pretty Spring branch-stamp below is a March present from Leslie Nicole at French Kiss-textures - I receive their news letter, and there by get a lovely present each month.

I made the poster below this morning using texture overlays from both French Kiss and Kim Klassen - who both share from their experience and are of great inspiration to me.




Well, just a little update from my corner of the world. Our sons are setting things up for a LAN-game evening, and my hope for a date night with my hubby later today is high :)

How do you notice your need to unwind, and in what ways do you regain energy, social surplus and mental presence?


Life is available only in the present. 
That is why we should walk in such a way
 that every step can bring us to 
the here and the now.

Thich Nhat Hahn

... Wishing you a peaceful weekend,

Nina

Happy and Creative 2017


January has turned to February - the pale and coolish winter light at noon does small miracles when photographing.  
Natural light is "my thing". Maybe that is due the lack of experience with flash - Who knows? 

Well, I like natural light, it kind of makes my world go around in a safe and predictable seasonal circle. 
I guess I've grown to like these seasonal changes - the rhythm, they create.




It has been a while since I've written an update here, besides the For Your Sunday-posts.

Sometime last fall I decided not to open computer after work, in order to spent less time by the screen. I have also turned off all notifications in my cell phone (besides from the text messages), and my cell phone is often times on a voiceless mode. Well, it sounds quite radical now that I write it ... Yet, I've reasoned, that this it is how I like it to be. For now.

When that is said, I need to hurry and say that I'm definitely not 'polishing any glories here' - I'm posting photos on Instagram, and following & being inspired by others photos. 
There is time for everything ... I've been thinking about learning to post to Blogger from iPad ... when my "hiatus" phase will be ebbing out.




Well ... I've knitted some things for Christmas - and at the moment I'm finishing some of my own projects, like the grey poncho-to-be in the photo below. Wool and knitting kind of belongs to winter, doesn't it?

The soft beige cardigan is knitted by my auntie, as well as the leg warmers - I'm wearing them almost every day at home ...
Thank you dear auntie!

The decorated pocket watch in the photo above is a Christmas present for my father - I'm so fond of it, the way you can 'click' the top of and check the time.



And - last but not least - we had a 4 day get away to London! The trip was a present to your youngest son - and it was such a great trip! I've taken loads of photos and some videos, they're to be posted here in the near future.

You've probably already guessed that the briefcase in the photo above is from London - there's room for both pc and notebooks. I needed a briefcase, my old one has faithfully served me the last 8 years - it's pockets worn so my keys are disappearing in-between the leather and the lining (not practical at all!) Well, we walked by a shop close by the British Museum, and my husband noticed the briefcase in the window ... And I was sold!

Well, I refer to many items in the post - as a form of a Thank you-post ... I'm also very happy for the Christmas cards I received - They're still hanging over the door to the living room! My own Christmas cards are yet to be written ... (it just never happened before it was too late, so I have saved them for next Christmas :)


:   :   :


As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand 
that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives 
for which we should be particularly grateful. 
They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -
- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; 
just warmth and shelter and home folks; 
just plain food that gives us strength; 
the bright sunshine on a cold day; 
and a cool breeze when the day is warm.

Laura Ingalls Wilder


... Cherishing the everyday,

Nina
