So it’s already december 3th. Only 21 days to Christmaseve and I’m not done with all the gifts get but I have made lussekatter (Swedish saffron buns) a lot of them. Maybe I should have a small christmasparty so they will end. I can’t bake or make food for 1-3 people I always make for a army!? I’m like my mom in that way,make more than necessary,but I think it’s a good thing….maybe….
My bestfriend pickt me up at work and we went to Ikea, just for look but uhm yeah that dident went so well…. I bought a frying pan, a big one! And then storage gadgets so I get my order in one cupboard at home, there is chaos there right now.
Dinner in the making and the master chef told me to sit on my ass and drink my wine,well and that was the only thing I did,pretty awesome if you ask me.
And here is my best friend in the whole wide world. I always the get the question is it possible to just be friends with a dude? Yes stupid most of my friends are dudes and my best friend is a dude.
And this deer are so cute, watched them when I was drinking my coffe and the played around in the snow.
It did actually hold for a couple of hours outside in the windy and snowy day. My day have been totally awesome!
I left the town pretty early and meet up a friend in Uppsala for breakfast and lunch. I have seen amazing art,old castle,a magnificent church and a library to day for! And the amazingly a 1500 years old bible. The silver bible and it was pretty cool.
I have laughed and smiled all day long. It’s have been genuine funny.
November started with rain and storm. But know on the evening it’s snowing.
Today I got my last stuff after months from my former love. It’s a chapter and a book to close now. All my emotions are kaos but it will calm down sooner than I expect.
From now it’s all about me,myself and I. I have a bunch of stuff to do and I will focus on that and still try to make all my dreams in to plans. When I write this and look out the window and see the snow…it’s make me smile and I got flashbacks from another special person who I will be able to give my full attention. Need to stop write here guys I need to make a call to this one person.
Have a lovely evening 💋
Well after a mental breakdown (happens to be alot last weeks) i Took My ass and walk down to a hobbystore. Notebooks and pencils with polkadots. Hope this Will make me write again and get My life back on track. At the moment I feel like a ghost and Im more sensitive then ever and thats bad,really bad!
Candels and tea! And if it´s still dark outside always candels to get the morning even more cozy,blanket and a magazine or a book to read. When I feel fit fot the day I gett dress and plan my day.
And pretty much I end up reading books of how to style you home vintage or well anything about vintage and 50´s. To get som inspiration for my mini apartment and what kind of smart solutions to make my home feel bigger and look even more vintage. Some times I find something I love and make a DIY project of it.

It take time to mke them but I enoy the time. -about baking and cooking food I do everything and every single meal from scratch. I have made my own marmelad and jam to this year. Back to gingerbreads! How many of you guys are making these for christmas? I did find the recipe in my book from 1946! And sure as hell the recipes from that book are 5 times better than the shit I have find on the internet.

Take suger,syrup, butter and the spices and boil it togheter for about 15 minutes, and don´t forget to stir every minute. Put away from the stove and pour in to a bowl. Mix the eggs and carefully pour in the flour. Let the dough rest about 1-3 days before you use it.
Although October is not completely over yet , I have last week just wishing for snow. Started planning the Christmas baking early as this weekend ( ? !) And so is my boyfriend and I have already started making our own Christmas cards. I know we will not make it otherwise, and then there will be chaos and I want to avoid it. Better to start early. I will start with the gifts also soon just to get everything ready in time.I love October and especially autumn . It is my season. But because there is always such a hysteria of Christmas each year , I intend to be completed before it kicks off in . However it can snow be happy to come in mid-November or the first week hahaha but no mid-November is the best. Then I have time to enjoy even more of Fall!Actually we have candlelights on all year round but as soon as it began to get dark out, we lit all the candles to make it cozy inside when we both love the candleslights. Now, when it is already dark when we return home, we are hardly through the door before we (read I ) has lit every candle I can find at home . What is missing is a fireplace.When we in future will move to a house in the country , I have only one requirement of the house: a fireplace! Out on the plot , I would have forests, fields and meadows. Preferably near to the lake , but most of all I want my own stable .
In Sweden it tomorrow All Hallows Eve . According to tradition, so you go to the cemetery and light candles at the graves and remember their family members who have passed away . In my family we go around to all the cemeteries where we have a relative and light a candle and then home and eat dinner with the family that lives . In the rest of the world celebrates Halloween for tradition and it is one that many Swedes have taken after but many young people have forgotten what all the saints evening is that is an ancient tradition in Sweden . For my part, I will light candles of my animals and at home for those who passed away and take a calm evening.
