And did it herself as well ??? It was a bit of a shock after seeing her with the same style for I don’t know how many years. But I am slowly getting used to it…
Small wet books hanging out to dry after somebody threw loads and loads of water on them.
Not that you really can see that in this picture here, but still. This is how it looked on the street around the corner:
Most of it was gone already by lunchtime. But Milla and I went out for a walk and had some fun. Last winter she didn’t really get the concept of snow, but this year, all she wanted to do was throwing snowballs at me.
So went to “The Forest”. A small patch next to a playground with some trees on it. Nothing I would call a forest, but in a kid’s world it’s huge !!!!
Use your imagination and you’ll have hours of fun there. Now the snow is gone, but it is supposed to snow more this week. Hopefully a bit more than yesterday. But more than that we hope for it to stay a little bit longer than just a couple of hours…
My favorite one !!!!
A bit different maybe from what I normally post. But changes are good.
And…. we got a new familymember. No, not another kid. But a new lens !!! Actually a birthday gift from Linda. And which one ??? Well…. the 50mm 1.4 AF-D. And I think I am falling in love with it. It’s just a wonderful piece of equipment…
The impossible happened !!! I went out on my MTB again in the forest yesterday. The first time since …. well. I don’t really remember actually. But it must have been somewhere before Milla was born. 2 Years we are talking now !! A shame that is. But I guess that is just my own fault.
But I am so glad I did it. Only a bit of hard work due to the fact that I crashed with the bike on the ride home from work on Friday, and my ribs and right-hand wrist are still hurting a bit too much. And the other being the fact that I never have been in this forest so deep in winter-time. So I never realised that it would be frozen over all over the place. Most of the downhills look like this, where the white spots are pure ice-sheets:
Not too bad you would say, until you get to these bits:
Normally on any given day, you would swoosh down there around 30-35 km/h. Now, I almost fell just walking down the little hill. Crazy stuff that was. And that just went on and on for the rest of the trip.
But it was ooohhh soooo worth it !!! Looking forward to next sunday morning already !!!
