How to survive November 2020-27

Table lamp

Friday!! Yes, weekend !! As if it made a difference – not! The same continues with only one difference, I can serve myself some wine. I don’t drink during the week, so tonight I can enjoy couple glasses of wine and relax! Small joys of life.

I took this photo from our hallway – entry – foyer( I could not make up my mind as to which word to use, I wrote them all down) yesterday, but as I edited it today… I should have paid more attention to cleaning, as you can see cat hair on the lamp shade if you look closely. Apparently I didn’t , must be the dim light 🙂 as it is there for everyone to see.

One of the lamps on the side console tables is giving nice muted light to the space, on the wall is a rya (A Scandinavian knottedpile woollen rug, used as bed-cover and tapestry) I did 30years ago. It nicely takes the eco away from the space.


Last night the moonlight beautifully shone into our bedroom.

August moon

Hi all,

long time since I posted here, summer being one of the reasons. Other is my digital art project that i have organized. I have also deleted two of my sites. Trying to organize my hobbies. I will most likely revamp this site too now that I am on a roll. Just to here to tell all is good, no covid or anything else but laziness with lack of posting, but I am back.

Blue moon of May

The past weekend was beautiful, warm and sunny skies. Loved it. I also loved the moon that lit up the field behind our summer place, it was so bright and shine.

How to survive November~30

Yes! Yeah, I made it without any physical injuries. Only a slightly more moody and bored mental state. Tomorrow,  it is December and then it is eleven days to my vacation. Countdown may begin. Here are some more sunset photos.

behind the clouds

I went outside to take photos of the supermoon last night and at that moment the clouds came. If nothing else, they are different from the great shots I’ve seen in past few days. Then again, you cannot always win

I do not a have the equipment to capture the moon details, but hopefully I captured the mood of this love moonlit night

The moon looks so pretty tonight, it is so low, it feel you could touch it. Took these 15 minute ago, so no editing has been done.

I am not at my best taking photos during night time, but I’ll share few shots from the weekend. The moon and stars are so  much more visible in the countryside.
