I went to my church


I’ve said it before and I say it again. Nature is my church. Especially archipelago nature where my home is. Nothing beat this in my book.

Can you believe there are people who wants to destroy this beautiful piece of paradise?

I will fight as long as I can to preserve nature. 

Have a great day you all!

Another day away from blogging

Beat this stats!


With over 2000 followers of this blog it’s quite an achievement to get zero stats.

I don’t put in any weight in this. I know it happens when I’m not around here on wp.

In next post I will show you what I did instead of being here.

You decide if I made the right choice or not 😉

This happens sometimes


When I’m not here on wp as much as I want to, this happens. From way over 100 views per day to 2 views a morning after a away-from-wp-period.

That’s totally fair. Blogging is about interacting and if you’re not active or interactive you will receive zero stats or very small stats numbers.

I know how to increase the number of views, I just have to get time to do it.

When I have the time I will do this:

1. Make a post, hopefully one that is interesting to read.

2. Make sure I answer all your comments. Please let me now if you never get an answer, then your comment may have disappeared from my notifications.

3. Visit your blogs, like and also leave comments if I thonk I have something to say.

4. After a day or two I check stats and see that the number of views increased.

Then I start all over again.

When I only do one or two thing on the list I don’t get so much better stats. It’s when I do all four things I get fun stats numbers.

But the number is not what I’m here on wp for. It’s all of you. Meeting you in the comments are the upside of blogging. I learn so much from you. Thank you!

What’s on your mind – vad funderar du över?


Do you take time for your thinking? Or do you rush through your life without thinking?

Stannar du upp för att tänka efter då och då? Eller rusar du genom livet utan att tänka efter?

I’m doing both. I try to take time to stop and think things through, but the also rush through life without thinking. I like both ways. Both stop and think and the rush without thonking gives me new perspectives and I learn new things.

Jag använder båda sätten. Jag försöker ta mig tid att noga tänka igenom saker, men jag rusar ibland också bara rakt eller krokigt iväg utan att tänka efter före. Båda sätten ger mig nya infallsvinklar och nya lärdomar.

So how do you do? Think and rush or just one of them?

Så hur gör du? Tänker efter och rusar iväg i kombintation eller bara tänker eller rusar iväg?

Stoneface – stenansikte

It’s fun painting on rocks. 

Det är kul att måla på sten.

Everyone can do it. Just find rocks and let your fantasy flow.

Alla kan måla på sten. Leta rätt på stenar och låt fantasin flöda.

Green tree

Very simple drawing done in a sketch program on an old phone. It was hard to see the screen in the sun, so it’s not a great drawing, just a bit of fun playing with colors and different brushtypes. The grass was supposed to be green, but now I see it’s almost yellow. Well it’s Swedish summer grass this year. Very little rain has made the grass yellow instead of green.

Finding time

What would you do if you found a treasure chest filled with time?


Anna

We are now over…

…2000 followers of this blog


That’s fantasy numbers for me. It’s all your doing. By sharing my posts, comment and like my posts and interact in every other way in the blogginf sphere you made those numbers. I’m not on any other social media, so it’s your sharing and interacting that draw new readers and followers to this blog. I just write the posts and try to interact with you as often as I can. It’s time consuming but very fun and delightful. Thank you all for being here 🙂

You are all stars in the blogging universe 

How did you find my blog and how do we find your blog? 

Leave your link in the comments if you want new readers to your blog 🙂

Wroom or Thunk?

That’s the question that pops up in my head when I read Dannys post and Jims post.

Is it all about speed? Or should we slow down and look up?

Check out their posts and then you get why I did this drawing.


Very often the comments from you five me drawing ideas when it starts to get weird or funny.

Like this from Jims post.

My power bank :)

Morning calmness at the Baltic sea near my home.


Bokö-Askö nature reserve, Baltic sea. Also near my home.

This is an excellent power bank and I hope this wonderful nature will stay here forever.

I saw the white tailed eagle several times over the tree tops. Didn’t catch it on camera though. The eagle was to fast for me.

I always get new energy when I’m in this place 🙂

Moving South


When you start to hear the special Fall sound in the air and then look up in the sky where the sound come from you will see a bunch of grey geese moving south this time of year in Sweden.

Så här års kommer du att höra tydliga ljud ifrån skyn. Tittar du upp kommer du troligtvis skåda källan till ljudet. Grågäss som flyttar söderut.

Can you see the formation the geese makes in this drawing? If you see the drawing from long distance the formation should appear 🙂

European green woodpecker – Gröngöling


I saw this bird flying in the woods today. It’s a very quick drawing, so it’s not a great one.

I couldn’t catch it on camera, the bird was too fast for me.

The green woodpecker is protected and on the red list of endangered species in Sweden. The bird lives in the Tureholm peninsula as all the other animals I’ve shown photos and drawings of lately.

I hope you don’t get bored with all my animal and save Trosa nature talking 🙂

Take a nap

I found an old drawing from last year.

Naps can do wonder 🙂

Gråbo – Mugwort


It may be a beautiful plant but for those with allergies it’s not a nice plant.

I don’t usually react on the pollen from Gråbo/Mugwort, but this year for some unknown reason I do. It’s like Springtime all over again for me. Hmfr…/:|

But it probably get better soon. It isn’t a cold and that’s positive 🙂

By the way, learn a Swedish word. Pollen is pollen in Swedish too! So now you know one more Swedish word 😉

Anna

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 😉
