This was my Thursday – one photo every hour


07.10 Getting ready. Early in the morning. Not that many words yet.

08. 28 Doesn’t matter if I start 2 hours before school starts or 15 minutes. We always have to hurry in the end. Have to change that.

09.00 Such a pretty window. Had a meeting in this room. Felt like I was in Paris. You can even see too the castle.

10.30 My hubby admiring the view in an house in Old town. Now we want to move here.

10.35 Yeah I know this isn’t an hour laters. Had to show this one anyways. Me and Evert Taube.

11.25 Eating at my editor Hannas desk. Wicked smart, sweet and funny. She is truly the best. I’m so lucky. I had pasta pesto rosso.

13.15 I’ve been working way too much lately. Late nights and and all the time. I sleep bad and only want to eat sugary stuff. Which I do. Like all the time.

14.55 Sweden is so dark now. Sun sets at 1500. But today it was amazing. Just look at this crazy shot!

15.53 Since we’re kind of skipping Xmas this year by leaving for Mexico. I try to catch some holiday spirit along the way instead.

16.15 Lucia is tomorrow but at school they celebrated today. I got so emotional. It was BEAUTIFUL. I cried the whole show.

17.59 Hell hour on full spin. Trying to get the whole family back home and make some dinner before everyone becomes insane.

18. 58 Beppe writes his own name for the first time. I start to cry again. And don’t say it isn’t true. All his letters are there on the paper!

19.42 I start to work again. Crazy days. But I got so much done! Also ate some Ben & Jerry’s. My fav’s New York super fudge chunk. Damn. It’s bombastically good.

Now – I’m signing off. Good Night!

I’m just a little jealous of your editor desk… An old stove, high ceilings …
And I think I’ll be “obliged” to return to Stockholm during winter because I have never seen a pink sunset like that when I came in the spring and summer …. :)
Have a nice evening. I have an appointment with Bilbo tonight ;)

Bilden med lucia och hennes fladdrande röda band, så fin och fångar känslan så bra. Tidig stressig morgon och därefter den mäktiga känslan när ens små barn gör samma sak som man själv gjorde för inte så länge sedan. :)

What a lovely post! My favorite picture is the sunset at *gasp* 14.55. Since I loved Sweden so much this summer, I’m returning to Sweden for Christmas — this time to Malmö and Skåne — and have been trying to prepare for the cold and darkness for months! If all else fails, I know lösgodis can help keep me warm or at least on a constant sugar high…

My second favorite picture is of the Lucias since I’m going to my first Swedish (or at least Swedish-American!) procession here in the US.

And, last but not least, I can relate to the last-minute rush in the morning, regardless of the time I wake up. How nice it must be for the super efficient early risers out there!
