Midsommar in Skärhamn. During the afternoon walk (too much food as usual) we saw this and realized it was time to go home again.

The deck is finally done. Now some lights around the decking, add some green between the deck and the retaining wall, put some grass on the sandy area and it will look a thousand times better than last week. The question is ready-grass-on-rolls or sow it from seeds?

We are axtending the wall all the way to the corner of our plot. Last year we stopped about 4 meters short. But now we decided it looked stupid and pulled it all the way. Brick-layering is hopefully happening this weekend if the weather permits it.

Parts of the deck are removed on the back and we are going to put a smaller deck along the rest of the wall. The trampoline is gone as well now. Gave it for free, which saved us a trip to the scrapyard and made some kids happy.

And on the front of the house we are without grass at the moment!! Not that it resembled anything like grass with all the weed in it. But it will be back in the near future. But we had to level it out as well, cause mowing the lawn was a bumpy ride.

And a new deck will be built. We realised that this side of house is out of the wind most of the time. And….. it’s a nice sunny place to eat your breakfast. And we are still debating between a wooden fence towards the neighbour or a green one with a pergola over the deck. To be continued ….

I’ve been looking through some old photos while recreating the old site on here. And I come across so many nice shots and memories that I decided to start posting them here anyway now. No backdating. Just get it out there so we remember.

A lot of biking again after the summer holiday. Almost 4 weeks off the bike is killing me. Not good, never do that again because you loose it so quick.

Now it’s just training, training, training. Sunday is the Kungsbacka Gran Fondo (140 km road race) and next week the Bockstensturen in Varberg (100km MTB). As long as I don’t overdo it.

A walk around the block

Yesterday I was at home with the kids. Zeb got a fever (39º) the night before, so we decided to keep him and Milla at home.

The morning was filled with moving some boxes and other stuff out of the way, hanging up a some frames safely (so they don’t fall down with the slightest touch). Going outside was out of the question because it looked like it would rain any minute. And Zeb wouldn’t have enjoyed it anyway.

Eventually he fell asleep, slept for3 hours and woke up a new person. Even the weather looked good all of the sudden. So we ate and packed a few things to head outside. Off to the lake just by the edge of our area.

Doesn’t it look wonderful ? Behind me kids were jumping in the water. I think Milla and Zeb wanted as well, but I didn’t bring towels. We walked around the whole lake, looked for places where we could swim. Which means almost everywhere. Maybe next weekend or so, because the water is still warm there.

Eventually, the weather turned on us.  But a forest means loads of trees to hide under. And it cleared again before we left it. I think the kids loved it. Loads of exploring to do in the future. It just feels fantastic to have a place like this within walking distance from the house.
