Cloud #inktober 19 2017


What if we really could sail on clouds. That would be awesome.

A Swedish singer and songwriter wrote a wonderful song in the eighties called Sail on a cloud. I still like it. If you don’t understand Swedish I google translated the lyrics. It’s a slow song in the beginning then it gets more powerful in the end. That’s the greatness of the song.

Segla på ett moln, Anne-Lie Ryde

Sail on a cloud
(lyrics google translated from Swedish)

I’ll hear the wind breathe
I’ll feel waves beat
I’m going to touch who I love
The one I believe in and understand
I’m going to my streets
Among my houses and rooms
I’m going to sleep under golden rain
During the night in my grove
Sail on a cloud – Do you want to come with me then?
Sail on a cloud – Do you want to come with me then?
Then I’m going to sail on a cloud
I’ll grow up in still hot
Forget all I did before
I will read my books
Put fire on what’s bothering
And I’ll grow my gifts
And sort my boxes
I’ll feel the smell of the earth
Blue violet and rosemary
Sail on a cloud – Do you want to come with me then?
Sail on a cloud – Do you want to go with me then?
Then I’m going to sail on a cloud

Am I the sun? Är jag solen?

I dagarna kom årets företagsrankning-rapport och Trosa kommuns politiker stannar kvar på sin plats sedan förra året, men utropar sig själva ändå till duktiga och fantastiska. Företagsklimatet är lysande säger de.

Jag sade redan förra året något annat och därför rebloggar jag inlägget där jag lade upp den enkät jag som företagare kunde fylla i. Tro inte på allt rankingplaceringar och kommunpolitiker säger, titta i upplysningarna på raden vinstmarginal på Trosaföretagen i handelssektorn och ni kan avläsa en betydligt dystrare verklighet än den rankingen försöker påskina.

Last year I made a post about how great our local polticians think they are. I said differently and this year they say the same and I say the same as last year. Therefore I reblog my post from last year. Don´t believe everything politicians say. They don´t look at actual number that shows something totally different from what they say. They measure attitudes. We who have our own businesses look at the numbers. They need to be black if we’re gonna survive, not red that far too many small businesses in our municipality have when it comes to little shops in our town.

Trosa kommuns politiker, som är satta att leda utvecklingen har under många år lyckats leva på gamla meriter. På senare år har dock verkligheten hunnit ikapp dem.
De kan inte längre stoltsera med topplaceringar på diverse rankinglistor, som numera är så populära för kommunpolitiker att lyfta fram som framgångskvitton.

Jag ritade för några år sedan en teckning som anspelar på kommunens stadsvapen och spådde just att kommunens män (för det är mest gråsprängda äldre män som bestämmer) kanske en dag flyger för nära solen, precis som Ikaros.

IKAROS

Rankingplaceringarna har nått lägre nivåer än tidigare de senaste åren och kommunens män gör inte särskilt mycket åt det utan skyller mest på orsaker som de själva inte tycks kunna råda över. Således lär man ju heller inte kunna förbättra situationen eftersom man saknar insikt om sin medverkan till att en förskjutning nedåt har skett på listorna.

Vems ägg? Who left the egg?


I found this little white egg in the woods. I wonder who it belongs to. It’s not Easter, so I don’t believe the answer is Easter bunny 😉

Jag fann detta lilla vita ägg i skogen härom dagen. Jag undrar vem det tillhör. Det var lite mindre än ett hönsägg, men inte så litet som ett småfågelägg. Det var mittemellan och nästan helt vitt.

Take a nap

I found an old drawing from last year.

Naps can do wonder 🙂

Herregud & co (Deargod & co)

This is a little book that lighten up my day everyday. My family got it as a present and this present last everyday as long as we live. 

Everyday it’s new wise or funny words worth thinking of.


Most days it’s Swedish text, but some days are in English. This one is a Dalai Lama quote.

The books name Herregud & co is created by Royne Mercurio.

If you want to see more you can check out the fb page herregudco

Now I smell more trouble ;)

Ops, I crochet one more minion and the little bear Tim. I will never grow up, this is too much fun 😉

Anna

Wild raspberries 

Hmmmm what to do with these


Well…they ended up here with some chocolate 😉


Jag använde malda solrosfrön istället för mandelmjöl i marängsmeten eftersom jag är nöt-och mandelallergiker. Det funkade jättebra.

Anna

I smell trouble ;)

I couldn’t resist crotchet this little friend 🙂

Anna

Carrot woman

It’s fun to find vegetables in the garden sometimes 😉

Funny hat

Today I suddenly saw what a funny label my sun hat has


Maybe we Swedes still have some viking hooligan blood in us 😉

But I have to disappoint you. I just put on the hat and sat down in shadow reading the newspaper. No hooligan acting at all, hehehe

Anna

Baking day :)

I tried to make some carrot bread today.


They turned out very well and taste so good you can eat all of them, if you want to be big as a house!

The recipe in Swedish you find here.

Anna

Easy crotchet


I tried this and you can do the same if you like.

Just watch the video at this link

https://svenska.yle.fi/artikel/2014/04/28/virkad-kofta-av-tva-sexkanter

I hope it’s possible for you to view. It’s a nice video about how to make this little baby clothing. It’s possible to crotchet in grown up size too. That’s my next step, to make one for myself.

How do I find you? 

Have you ever wondered how people find your blog?

I can tell you that most of the visitors on my blog comes from wp reader. You probably use the wordpress app on your digital device or use wordpress on your computer. If you find my blog posts in your reader, the stats says x views comes from wp reader.

If you happen to find my posts through reblogs the stats says from which blog. If someone has shared a link on fb the stats says fb sent visitors over to my blog if they click the link on the fb post.

If you read my blog through your browser the stats only shows views and visitors numbers.

Here’s a normal week stats


Here’s a boom! week where one of my Save Trosa nature friends did several linkbacks from a fb page


So, how do I find your blogs?

Very often I go there by clicking further on the notifications. I know, it’s a lottery for you to get the chance that I click further on your notification. If I see the notification when you liked a post and I have time to read blogs, you might get a visit from me. But if I don’t have time reading blogs after I posted the chance is big that the first numbers of likes go under the visible list before I can click further.

But if I post often you get new chances to be visible in the notifications and new chances for me to click further to get to your blog.


If you leave a comment on my blog or I leave a comment on your blog and you press like button on the comment, you get a bigger visibility in the notifications. Very often you are alone on such notification or share it with one or two others.


If I have enough time (when ever that happens???????) I go to my reader and check out new post from blogs I follow or blogs I don’t have yet discovered.

You maybe find my blog when I press like, leave a comment or two or press like button on comments. I probably show up in your notifications and you womder who on earth is this. Your curiosity takes over and you have to check out the blog I have 😉

Anna


I haven’t figured out why it says follow and follows (in Swedish följ och följer). I have pressed follow on almost every blog I had the chance to visit. I press that again and again on some blogs but it still says I’m not following. That’s weird.

Seriously, is this much? 

I have no idea if this is Boom! stats or not. But it is fun to get milestones. I don’t get milestones very often. When I had five followers and ten views a day I got milestones more often.
