Water color winter

Found an old painting I did twenty years ago.



Snow is melting 

That must be something good or what do you think?


Snow fun

This is a good thing  about snow. Morning started cold, minus 8C, but when Spring sun came out the snow became art material 🙂 we had a lot of fun making small snowmen and other things with the snow.

A tiny little snowman

Snowball tree 🙂

Snow Yoda

And a nother magic creature 

The Christmas goat beacame a unicorn goat today 😉

So today was a good day despite snow almost all over the place. The sun made the Spring come closer. 

17:22 March 15 2018

Spring is not on its way yet obviously.

No it’s nothing wrong with the cam. It’s coming icky bad white stuff down from sky. It is white out there. No sunshine in sight at all.

Back to winter.


Winter greetings from Trosa Sweden

Jim wanted to see some winter pictures. Don’t ask me why someone wants to see winter pics when so many long for Spring. But as you know, Jim is one of our friendly blogger in the community so of course I show some pics from my city in white.

Freezing temps this weekend. Minus 12 C, but when Spring sun coming up it’s more like 4-5 minus C. 

Have a great start of the week 🙂


Not Spring yet – Inte vår ännu

It’s been a great day so far. Then this came down from sky. That icky bad white stuff as Jim call it.

Idag har jag haft en underbar dag. Sen kom detta ner från skyn.

It is wet snow, so tomorrow I know what to do. Snow shoveling. Good exercise but I reqlly want Spring now.

Blöt snö som enligt väderprognoserna ska fortsätta i natt och imorgon. Ingen ode att planera in så mycket annat än träningsformen snöskottning. Jag längtar efter våren!

Yes we have the Christmas lights up still. I think the town forgot about it. It was the first year they decorated the tree with lightballs this Christmas. The usual stuff around the center of town is gone. But not this decoration.

Jepp, vi har julbelysning kvar ännu. Tror att kommunen glömt att plocka ner just denna belysning. På torget har de tagit bort julbelysningen. De har inte haft belysning i detta träd tidigare, så förmodligen har de glömt den kvar.

Have a great Friday. Today I learned there’s still some good in the world.

Ha en underbar fredag. Idag kunde jag genom små händelser återfå hoppet om att en god värld kan vinna över dess motsats.


More snow again

This morning

Snowy kayaks. You won’t belive it, but one kayak actually got in the water today. Not me, but I saw another person step in a kayak and paddle away. Brrr!

Snowy trees are beautiful 🙂

Five hours of snow shoveling today. My exercise is done for today. Lovely weather with so much fresh air in my lungs now 🙂

I still long for Spring though.


More snow 

Beautiful, but I long for Spring 🙂




Winter arrival- vinterns intåg

Been away from here because of winter arrival. That means time consuming snow shoveling. But snow shoveling also means exercise and fresh air. It all depends on how you see it. 

Vinterns intåg har stulit tid från bloggandet eftersom snön innebär några pass på “snögymet”. Det innebär ju motion och frisk luft, så allt beror på hur man ser på saker och ting.

Winter is beautiful but exhausting 🙂

Vintern erbjuder vackra landskap, men innebär också stor ansträngning 🙂

Winter in my neighborhood. Vinter i mitt kvarter.


The weather outside’s delightful :)

…or not depends on how you see it.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas 

That’s nice to see some bright colors that lightening up the ground 

But with nice things there’s always a but.

Someone have to shovel this snow. Well, there’s always an upside to downsides too. Shoveling snow mean exercise in fresh air. What can be bad about that, besides the heavy lifts?

I can’t help it, snow is beautiful around Christmas 🙂

Here’s an old snow painting of mine.


Is it snowing on your blog?

A post at Aspiblog made me aware of something I didn’t had thought about.

The snowing on wp blogs in December. I always thought that was a nice little extra in December. But not everyone reader see it that way. The snowing can disturb the reading. So this year, no more snowing on my blog.

You find the settings here if you want to check your own blog.

Another setting you might want to think aboubt is the language setting if your in a EU country with restricted area codes. If I put Swedish as language my blog posts only shows in Swedish readers flow. I disappear from the wp reader if you’re not in Sweden and if you’re not following my blog. I still can write in both Swedish and English or any other language for that matter. When I set English as language my posts shows in the worldwide flow in wp reader from where the most of the visitors at my blog come from.


December 7 2017 White stuff morning

I woke up to a white ground outside, but shortly after that the ground turned grey again.

It was shovel free snow, so it was beautiful and all good.

I don’t mind it’s not much snow yet. I like a white Christmas though, but then it can be Spring again I say 🙂

Here’s a Swedish winter song about how fun it is when it’s snowing. I liked snow as a kid. Snow ment skiing and other fun things to do outside. Someone else shoveled the snow, so we kids only had fun when snow arrived.

Do you like snow? 


Rain vs Icky bad white stuff

The light starting to get back to us here now. This is around 18:30 today.

In wintertime it’s pitch black dark around 14:00-15:00.

And no, I don’t mind the raindrops on the windows. We actually need rain.

But….what we don’t need is that thing that Jim call icky bad white stuff coming down.

An hour later this came down. You can’t see it, but the fine white lines are thar icky bad white stuff.

I want spring temps back. We were up at 18C the other day. Now were back at 0C. Brrrr!

No, I can’t complain at all. I have roof over my head. I have warmth. I have food for all days to come so far I know. My family that is still alive is still alive and the ones who passed away have passed away peacefully without pain or diseases and with an ok life length. So no, I can’t complain about anything. Still I wish for Spring weather, can I do that without being greedy?

So rain vs icky bad stuff, who wins? I hope rain wins right now. Maybe I think differently in December around Christmas 😉

What doyou think?


Snowball tree

What do you do with some left over snow?

You make a snowball tree 🙂

What do you do with the Spring snow?
