Up Close...



Saturday, seven thirty in the morning. Soft sunlight, wet grass, close up pictures taking shape...

Miss M. left for the Cascade Locks (Oregon) early this morning. Her left arm in a sling (= 'mitella' in Dutch) because of an earlier fall this week that involved an air mattress and water... She will be camping there with a family and observe her friends in different sailing competitions.

The rest of us will be driving to Georgetown this afternoon (just south of Seattle) to go to a music festival celebrating Sub Pop's 25 year Jubilee. (Sub Pop is a famous record label from Seattle) The weather is fabulous so it should be a fun event.... Here is a funny ad to watch (just click on the word 'ad') and I am proud to say that I have actually met all these people!  <wink>

In the mean time I'm reading Henning Mankell's book 'Den Orolige Mannen'. (from the Kurt Wallander series) Yes people, in Swedish!!!  <wink> I must admit my brain has to work a little bit harder on this one (we left Sweden 20 years ago this summer so it has been a while), but boy do I love to read in Swedish!  {smile}

  3. Nu slutar jag skriva på engelska, jag hade inte en susning om att du är så duktig! Imponerande.
    Vi säger också mitella, stackars lilla C.
    Och är du alldeles säker på att det är en symaskin du fått? Det ser mer ut som ett rymdskepp! Lycka till.

    1. Jo, men det visste du sakert nog Aggie? ;-) Jag har bara inte umlauterna etc. for att skriva ordentligt. Jag mast erkanna att skrivandet pa Svenska tar en hel del av mig. Men du kan skriva mig pa Svenska och sa svarar jag pa Engelska ok? :-)

    1. Thanks Pippa, I am glad somebody (like you!) notices these things. I don't know why but sometimes things just start stirring inside and a new banner has to be made! :-)

  6. Such beautiful pictures. Really stunning.


    I also like Wallander. Especially in the tv-series with Kenneth Branagh as Kurt. Have you seen it?

    And in Swedish! What a courage you've got. I like the sound of the language but I don't make much of it. There are 3 words that keep on coming back in almost every Swedish detective:
    'kvinna", "ingenting" , 'bra'
