Hi! I hope you are having a nice end of the week and feel ready for Monday. I have had a better week, and am starting to feel all the benefits from my (on and off the mat) yoga practice. I sleep better, I feel less pain in my body, I have more energy, I feel happier and more confident in my own abilities. Burn … Continue reading Sundays with us
It has been a good weekend at our house. On Saturday we got the good news that Biden/Harris won! Finally the counting was done and we all could breath out for a bit. I believe in character and role models, and kicking Trump out of the White House gives the world hope. Having a leader with that much power being able to say so many … Continue reading Weekend at The Changalas
So, we are flying to Lusaka over the Holidays and are staying for about five week. I can not emphasize enough how much I need this trip, this time of the year. And one thing I do when I am looking forward to something, I start preparing far ahead, maybe even too far ahead. This time it felt really necessary. We usually travel with Ethiopian … Continue reading 13 things to think of when packing for a longer trip
Hi after a long time! This is winter! Summer disappeared and so did I. Most of Autumn was spent working and reading and trying to catch as much sunshine as possible until the darkness arrived. I managed quite okay until the end of October when I got a cold and after that it has just continued being hard. This week I got a flare again … Continue reading Soon time for Holiday in Zambia
Can´t take much credit for this garden but am still going to brag a little bit about it. Or I wont write so much about it, maybe just leave the photos here to look at later this year when it is getting cold and harsh and grey and unfertile, and did I mention cold? I leave them here like a mental memory, a note, an … Continue reading Summer garden update
I just realized that I really love this time of the year. It has been light and warm (-er) for some months so me and everybody else in this cold country has warmed up a bit. We have gotten some sunshine and soften up to our environment a bit more than during winter. But also, it is just the middle of summer which means that … Continue reading Summertime, finally
We have summer weather now. All this talk of weather, the controlling nature of its matter. How it changes moods and affects bodies. Weather in Sweden is everything, and nothing. Nothing to rely on. Sometimes I let myself wonder how we would be as a society if we had good weather all the time. Scary. But right now weather is good. This week we are … Continue reading Always this thing called weather
Yesterday we spent some time at the mall. And not any mall, the biggest one in Sweden, Mall of Scandinavia. Alice and Mayani was going to watch Sweden play against Germany in a friendly game at the Arena just next to the mall, so me and Sylvia figured we should hang and do some shopping. Mostly we do thrift store shopping for both clothes and … Continue reading Why I love a good mall right now
We have a garden again! Not attached to our house and not in the perfect climate of Zambia, BUT it is a place to grow things! In the small town we live we found a small community garden with the possibility ot rent a 50 or 100 squaremetre plot and Mayani wrote them an email as soon as we moved here in November. And now … Continue reading We got an urban garden again.
I was supposed to write a blog post last Friday. I had the day off and the whole weekend a head, so a nice long three day weekend, but I just could not write anything on Friday. I woke up feeling terrible. Drank my coffee and watched some TV-series about deadly traumas (Critical) and then I reached for my phone to check on Instagram and … Continue reading Last Friday and beyond. Or where to start to change the narrative.
