Clouds and rain

The other day a big cloud came up for the first time for many weeks of blue skies and heat temps around 30 C. We normally have around 20 C. Yesterday more clouds visible and a little raining and far away thunder and lightning. Today rain came for a little while. After an hour it… Continue reading Clouds and rain

Clouds Moln

Unusual sight nowadays. Clouds. But when they come up over sea they vanished. No rain in sight and 30 degree C in shadow. Normal summer temps for us is around 20 C. Några moln dök upp igår men skärgårdsluften löste upp dem. Inget regn, men vi slapp också åska tack och lov. How's your weather?… Continue reading Clouds Moln

Long time no seing 

I morse fick jag syn på denna vinbärssnäcka. Det var länge sedan vi såg sniglar och snäckor här. Kanske har den mer fuktiga luften givit dem en mer gynnsam tillvaro igen. This morning I saw this little friend for the first time after long dry and hot weeks. Now it's still hot but more humid.… Continue reading Long time no seing

Morning drawings Morgonteckningar July 26-27 2018

I have found a peaceful way of make drawings that I hope will be a habit. I've only tried it for two days but I really like to get up early in the morning, get outside and draw something the very first thing I do before the world around me wakes up. Jag har hittat… Continue reading Morning drawings Morgonteckningar July 26-27 2018

Cake week – tårtvecka in Sweden

This week is called womens week in Sweden. Everyday has a womans name in the calendar. One tradition about this week is baking cakes everyday. I failed to do that this year.

Soon I hope I get time for some kayaking.  This is also why I'm fighting for nature.

Everyday we can watch many… Continue reading Kayak water

Sailboat season starts

Today I saw a red sailboat with white sails in the afternoon sun. So beautiful and the longing for a warmer and brighter season grew stronger. The Spring sun is warm but the winds are still cold. Not warm spring or summer yet. My interpretation of the boat. I paint on rock with chalk crayons.… Continue reading Sailboat season starts
