Anything else than, I live in a strange country
We sat on the porch, eating lunch, enjoying the sunshine in a top tank and bare foot
Just saying,,, spring in Sweden is one odd thing, and amazing
and I sit her and try to wake up, slowly, very slowly.
After a couple of intense days my body feels like it have run marathon. Every part of it hurts so to just sit and slowly try to reach out for the day is the best way to wake up today.
The cats are running around like crazy. From the kitchen I can feel the smell of new coffee being prepared. I hear my assistants preparing a good and healthy breakfast. I’m going to sit in my chair, up with my feet’s, looking at the fire and just enjoy breakfast.
Nothing special have to be done today, well at lest nothing more than that things we always do. You know washing clothes, clean the apartment, and out for a walk in the nice, fresh spring air. I get this feeling inside when spring comes that I “have to” do so much.
I have to go out when sun is shining,
I have to be on the porch when the wind is not to cold,
I have to take care of the garden
I have to plant seeds
I have to do this and this and this
Sometimes I need to push down my mental brake and say, hey take it easy – enjoy – don’t stress – there’s a day tomorrow to, and I try to listen to that. But wow its hard. I want so so much, I’m able to do so little, but I do everything to enjoy every moment. Even those days when the dark cloud invades my mind and soul.
I work with myself, my dark side. I try to see the good in the dark. Of course I don’t succeed every day, I’m only human and in one way I think its good to just let go of the work. I think we all need to go down in the grey/dark feeling sometime. It make us appreciate the good days, the calm and relaxing day. It makes us being able to say, hey its okay to feel sorry for yourself today, its okay to be sad today, its okay to not perform on a high level every day.
I am that kind of person that always want to perform at my absolutely best, and that takes energy. So to go down in the grey/dark hole for a little while sometimes helps me to get perspective on that life is not so bad at all. It helps me to put the demands on myself down a bit.
For today that’s not going to happen. Today I woke up with a mind that was light and my intention is to keep it there.
Will it happen? Na probably not, cause when the body gets tired so gets the mind and soul. But hey, I enjoy this morning and I soon will enjoy my breakfast and the walk outside. That’s 3 good things to be grateful over.
My soulmate bring sunshine in to my life.
When forced to stay inside even though the sun is shining, spring is progressing with a speed like a rocket, I’m stuck inside.
To get this surprise, from USA to Sweden blow my mind and truly did my day a good one.
Just to know that someone thinks about us like this are a amazing feeling. A feeling that is feeding the soul with sunshine and pumping heat.
I’m lucky to have find a friend like this, everyone should have this kind of friendship. It makes life worth living fully.
Thanks for bringing sunshine in to my life.
Last day of February 2021. I found the first spring flowers.
Small, white, weak, gentle filled with life.
Its amazing to see them, it brings warm feelings to my inner soul. Its a promise of that things happens and it happens fast. Spring are such a amazing time of the year. I love all seasons cause all of them have something very special to give us.
But spring is that season when everything wakes up.
Its fantastic to see the changing in people. How they slowly get a smile in there faces. Eyes start to shine. Sunshine does so much to us mentaly. So much more than we can even imagine.
So much happens in nature, every day brings a new thing to amaze above, every new day show us that the smallest little leave groves from being just a seed to a wonderful leave. The green colors starts to show in so much variations. Spring is the season of colors and smells.
During the spring, farmers start work in their fields. The smell of manure spreads in the landscapre. A scent of coming harvests of different grains. To be really honest I see autumn as the beginning of a new year.
Autumn, when everything rots, calms down to later be covered with snow and resting before the start which comes now when the sun brings everything back to life.
My plans for the garden are growing, my porch are going to get a well deserved cleaning. New oil on the wood. Table get cleaned and also get oil to make the wood get back its color from last year.
Do you think I love this?
+ 5 celcius
Birds are singing
Snow is gone
Almost no wind
Music on radio
Guess what, this is life. Life when it shows from the good side.
Life that support me with energy.
Life that slowly wakes up after a long dark winter.
Life that make me feel, there will be spring flowers, there will be a summer ahead.
Life that can take away some of that grey, old winter face.
Spring is the beginning of everything.
The music you can here from the running water in the river are right now so loudly, it sounds like the water are shouting to me,,, “here I come with spring”
Over my head comes a flock of swans. We heard there special singing from far away.
On the field stand the first two cranes I have seen for this season.
Out for a walk and realize that soon, very soon can I go in to the forest with my power chair. It just have to dry up a little in the ground, or I will get stuck in the mud. Been there, done that, not so fun or shall I say,,, I got dirty.
I’m planning for new place in the garden, give me a tickling feeling in my stomach. Like small butterfly’s inside.
Planning on what vegs I’m going to grow in my small garden. Tomato, cucumber, lettuce and strawberries and of course some union and spices.
Spring is truly the time that makes people wake up again. We come out of our homes, look up at the blue sky and realize, wow the long dark/grey days are over. Now we look forward to the sunlight for 24/7.
Oh mye oh mye.
One awesome, beautiful, stunning, gorgeous, lovely, cold, windy winterday.
This is what I love about winter.
When the sun shine on you and you can feel that it smothly caresses your cheek .
The feeling inside that say, just turn your face up towards the sky.
Let the sun rays give you that awesome feeling of being greatfull and thankfull over living in such a wonderful place.
Slowly we are now moving against spring.
The daylight gets longer. To wake up and actually see anything else than black and grey, it is amazing.
The nights are extremely cold, but in daytime you get that warm feeling.
Snow will start melting and we can take that first hot cup of coffe outside on the porch.
When snow melts I know we will start to look after the first signs of spring.
But for now,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, just enjoy the sparkling snow and the cold.
