It is so quiet and very slow.
I can tell that most of my regular readers are on vacation.
I hope you ALL enjoy, since I know that Scandinavia is blessed by a BEAUTIFUL summer this year.
I enjoy looking at your pictures on Instagram a lot. Keep ‘em coming! 'Cause, you know what, Instagram is boiling with activity.
YOU can really tell that the entire Nordic region of Europe IS indeed on vacation.
My dear brother-in-law started sharing his summer pictures with me via the Photostream on my iPhone.
I love it!
All the pics he takes shows up on my Photostream on my (and also on Peter’s) iPhone.
As I have stated MANY times before; you have GOT to love the new technology.
Thru my b-i-l, and thru my darling sister Sara I have been able to partake in their daily activities thru their pictures while they were vacationing at our summer house in Närpes for two weeks. They got back to Stockholm yesterday.
EVERY morning a picture bomb was, no TWO picture bombs, were waiting on my phone when I woke up. What a joy for me!
My sister sent her pics to me via iMessage.
I tell you, you gotta love it.
Here are a few of Sara and Håkan’s pics from the place I love most in the world.
You can follow Sara on Instgram, her name there is baulen. You can follow Håkan at hakankroksmyr
Yes, please, I say!! Give it to me!!
Our veranda, southern exposure.
The veranda, western exposure. I love having a big deck.
We don't have a TV at our summer house. We do not have wifi either. And, that is JUST the way we want it. We play cards instead, or we talk, or we play boardgames...
My niece is out rowing
Sunset. Late, late at night. It never gets dark. White nights galore!
Yes, I will be going there soon myself.
In the end of August, but by then it is early fall there. Not quite the summer they are enjoying now.
Good, but different, I guess...
The latest deck on our property. A new dock where we can sunbathe and swim! Håkan built it a couple of weeks ago. I love it already!
MY mom is enjoying the summer day!
What a PERFECT summer day!
Grytskär, the island next to ours!
My grandparents wedding picture from 1939. My grandma is 20 years old, my grandpa 30...
For me today is a regular Reston day.
PW, maybe the pool, and the regular errands.
Here are a few pictures that I shot with my own iPhone last week. In Reston.
Have a good one!
Enjoy your vacations! Enjoy YOUR day!
And, this picture is taken yesterday. We do have PERFECT summer weather now! Not too hot, not too humid. Just perfect. Around 30 degrees C. Love IT!!
