Who wants an alarm clock like this?

I like my work, but Monday mornings….well it would be nice with this kind of alarm clock sometimes 🙂



Don’t leave me…

…so soon

Do you feel like this?

Sunday rushing away from you despite the fact that you match perfectly together?

And the Monday character knocking on your shoulder waiting to get you into trouble that mess up the good peaceful feeling the Sunday gave you?

I’m a HSP, high sensitive person, so when Peaceful Sunday leave me and Monday knocks on my shoulder I get a bit unpeaceful. 

I like my work and I like all people that I get to meet those days even the trouble ones. But for a HSP it’s also exhausting. We experience five times more than “normal” people. So during one hour I collect impressions that others collect in five hours. The workdays are therefore long days and when I come home it takes many hours to regain peacefulness in my mind.

So Sunday night I take a deep breath and breath out when the weekend comes.

Känner du som på bilden när en fridfull söndag övergår till en måndag med allt vad en måndag kan innebära?

För högsensitiva personer, som t ex jag, innebär slutet på en söndag förberedelser för att rusta sig för en arbetsvecka. 

Jag gillar mitt arbete och alla personer jag kommer i kontakt med, även de trouble ones.  Men för en högsensitiv innebär dagar ute bland folk stora ansträngningar som kräver mycket energi. Vi upplever allt fem gånger så starkt som “normala” personer. Det innebär att vi under en timme samlar intryck som andra samlar på sig under fem timmar. Det tar därför många timmar att mentalt sortera alla dagens intryck och finna ro i själen och tanken igen.

Så på söndagkvällar tar jag ett djupt andetag och andas ut igen när helgen börjar.

This time I have a two weeks peacefulness work and freetime behind me, so this Monday will be a challenge. But it will also be nice to be back in ordinary days again.

Den här gången lämnar jag två veckors arbete/fritid-komboledighet bakom mig, så denna måndag kommer att ge ordentligt med utmaningar. Samtidigt brukar jag gilla att komma tillbaka till vanliga dagar igen.

What do you feel about Mondays?

Vad tycker du om måndagar?


Magnolia drawing

A quick ipad drawing of one of the Magnolia blooms I told you about in a previous post. I want to do a proper painting of it too, but right now I’m working on my painting for Trosa Spring exhibition and I have to be sure that painting will be ready in time.

So every free awake hour I try to give the painting. That means being away from you a lot more than I wish to. Just look at this

The last two days I have been away from wp very much. I miss you but will be back. I wanna show you my painting that I’m working on, but you will have to wait til exhibition opening later on in May.

It’s a good one, I hope, so please be patient and wait if you want to see what I’m working on. I think I’m gonna call it WHO ARE YOU? 

Until then I will try to stop by here as often as I can. 

Flowers makes me happy 🙂

How do you feel about flowers?

Oh, but the way, you can learn a new Swedish word. Magnolia is in Swedish….Magnolia!


Happy birthday drawing 2017

Swedish Christmas song Jul jul strålande jul

Santas head

Not many days left to Christmas now. The Christmas songs echoing in my head constantly.

This is one of them. A Swedish classic Christmas song. You can read a translation below the Swedish text.

av Edvard Evers

Jul, jul, strålande jul, glans över vita skogar,
himmelens kronor med gnistrande ljus.
glimmande bågar i alla Guds hus,
psalm, som är sjungen från tid till tid,
eviga längtan till ljus och frid!
Jul, jul, strålande jul: glans över vita skogar!

Kom, kom, signade jul! Sänk dina vita vingar
över stridernas blod och larm,
över all suckan ur människobarm,
över de släkten som gå till ro,
över de ungas dagande bo!
Kom, kom, signade jul, sänk dina vita vingar!

Google translated:
Christmas, Christmas, radiant Christmas,
By Edvard Evers

Christmas, Christmas, radiant Christmas, gloss over white forests,
heaven crowns with sparkling light.
gleaming arcs in all God’s house,
hymn, which is sung from time to time,
eternal yearning for light and peace!
Christmas, Christmas, radiant Christmas: gloss over white woods!

Come, come, designed Christmas! Lower your white wings
the battles of blood and alarms,
of all groaning from the human breast,
of genera that go to rest,
of young people dagande stay!
Come, come, designed christmas, lower your white wings!

I like the time around Christmas. This year have been busy at work time and will be until the very last day before Christmas, so the Christmas preparations will be what I have time left for.

I miss you right now because I haven’t had the time to visit your blogs that much lately, but I will be around all Christmas now and then and I hope I will get time to some blog reading. It’s so fun to check out how you’re doing in your corner of the world.


Trosa 8:30 pm May 2016


Have to get up early tomorrow. The sky’s gonna look almost the same at 5 am something tomorrow. We don’t have many dark hours at this time of the year. I like it, but it’s difficult to go to sleep when it looks like daytime outside.


Night shifts

night time cat time (for sale/till salu)

Are you working night shifts?
Do you like it?

I work night shifts right now. When I’m at sleep! It’s frustrating but also efficient.

When I go to bed I have no trouble going to sleep, but in the middle of the night my work shift start. Says my brain.
The brain is full awake, working and trying to solve problems, that I don’t really need to solve in the middle of the night.
But my brain thinks it’s an excellent time for working at problems. Especially problems that don’t need to be solved.

It’s really weird. My brain wants to work and I want to sleep so I don’t have to feel tired in the morning when the world around me expect me to go to my real work.
At that time my brain has gone to sleep finally and have very little interest in waking up. My brain says I’ve already solved every problem. I know for a fact that’s not true. So I get up and get to work where my real work is and where people’s real problems are that they want my help to solve.

It might sounds like me and my brain doesn’t agree on this night shifts thing. And yes, it is frustrating with work in the middle of the night. But the good thing is that my brain solves problems and leave the night shifts with a good feeling.

The times problems are not solved I wake up and I know I don’t have to worry about unsolved problems from night shifts. They don’t come back, they vanish and my brain invent new problems to solve in the next shift.

Is this making me weird? Probably! But I have never been anything near “normal”. I tried for about forty years to find out how to be “normal”. Then I gave up and found out it was much more fun being weird me 🙂

But I could do without the night shifts right now. I’m ok though, the shifts doesn’t last that long. I get enough sleep, so I can’t complain really.

last April/sista april

Today celebrates Sweden Walpurgis Night. We say goodbye to winter and welcome spring. By ignite fires in the cold spring evening. But I am totally exhausted after a long and intensive working, so I have skipped the celebration and hang for a while here on WP with you the last waking time on this day. Some of you may have daytime still?

I dag firar Sverige Valborgsmässoafton. Vi säger adjö till vintern och välkommen till våren. Genom att tända brasor i den kalla vårkvällen. Men jag är helt slut efter en lång och intensiv arbetsdag, så jag har hoppat över firandet och hänger en stund här på wp med er den sista vakna tiden på detta dygn. En del av er kanske har dagtid fortfarande?

Zzzzz Anna

I think my brain already is a sleep. Been working a lot today, needs rest.
