Nyter fortsatt sommeren - Still enjoying the summer



Hi everyone, how are you doing ?
I assume many of you are busy enjoying the summer, like I am doing.

We`ve had some fabulous weather lately, so I am afraid my blog has been a bit neglected. So sorry for that !
I have to admit, I don`t spend much time thinking about pillows and rugs, cups and corners I have to finish, or even the downstairs loo. Which is totally ripped from wallpaper, and should have been finished two years ago. I rather spend my time with friends and family, in the garden, taking day trips, celebrating the season with  ripe fruits and vegetables, watching sunrises and sunsets, holding hands, or diving into lukewarm lakes. I just want to enjoy all those little things that makes summer so special.

Soon the beautiful green leaves will turn grey and brown, the wonderful butterflies will disappear and the flowers will fade away... Scandinavia comes to life during summer. For many, summer is THE favorite season. We hardly spend time indoors. Gone are the freezing cold, the hopeless longing for warmer, brighter and longer days with lots and lots of sun.

Summer is time for sheer joy, but also a time to have patience, to grow, to take time to sit back unwind and reflect, and find balance by spending quality time with your loved ones.

...So you see, I will try not to miss out on anything. Not yet.

Totally, I think we already have harvested 8 cucumbers. And they just keeps coming and coming. 
Hurray, our broad beans are almost ready to be picked too!!

Ha en fortsatt deilig sommer - Enjoy summer my friends !

Grip dagen said...

Det var lenge siden jeg så aktivitet på bloggen din. Du har nok storkost deg i hagen og i drivhuset i sommer!
Jeg ønsker også å tilbringe så mye som mulig av min fritid ute. Må oppleve og nyte alt det hagen gir oss. Det er nå vi lader batteriene for en lang og mørk årstid som står for tur.
En riktig god helg og fortsatt fine sommerdager!
Sommerklem fra Marit

You've described perfectly what Summer is all about - family, friends, gardening and outdoor pursuits! Enjoy the sunshine and enjoy the feeling of being relaxed, but most of all - enjoy those gorgeous looking cucumbers - well done you!
Best wishes,

Så nydelige bilder. Det er kjekt å kunne dyrke sine egne grønnsaker.
Synes du lager så mye fint. Gleder meg til du begynner å produsere noe igjen som du vil vise oss her på bloggen din. Ønsker deg en fortsatt fin sensommer.
Klem fra Tine

Augusti är också en sommarmånad! Och visst ska vi ta oss tid och njuta av sensommaren, gärna tillsammans med de människor vi tycker om.
Härlig känsla att få skörda egen sådd!

Önskar dig också en fortsatt deilig sommar!
