Wednesday Wanderings (12)

I can't move. An extremely tired dog is sleeping on my feet. And interrupting that would be a crime against cuteness.  I sit on my bed with my computer on my lap, looking back on a few incredible busy (but offline) days and working on...

Wednesday Wanderings (11)

Last week was a bit of a quiet week without much wandering around in the woods. Instead, I did everything to not get sick like Joeri (at least one person has to keep things going, right? ;-) ) and we had to keep our heads...

Wednesday Wanderings (10)

It's this strange and tricky weather where, from inside, you get the feeling that there is a hint of spring weather in the air. The sun is shining, happy birds fly around the feeders, and the light,...

Living abroad: lost in word soup

Have you ever heard of Neder-Swengelska? No? It's what I currently speak fluently. It's an interesting and creative mix of Dutch, Swedish and English and the cool thing is that it has so many variations and dialects that almost nobody can understand it! - not even the...

Wednesday Wanderings (09)

When we drive from our little village in the woods to Stockholm, it's like entering another world. Perhaps, in a way, a world that we know. A place of energy and color but also noise and impatience. When we traveled through Sweden before moving here, we...

The stories are in the scratches

It's almost midnight and I am staring at my glowing screen, being painfully aware of a headache that has been following my every move the whole day. Normally I wouldn't be in Sweden right now but visiting my home country Belgium for a week to celebrate...

Wednesday Wanderings (08)

I'll admit, I am obsessed with ice and its textures, so I just post all the photographs I took at this little waterfall :-)  -- don't say I didn't warn you! You can also follow me...

Wednesday Wanderings (07)

After weeks without sunlight, our black and white world was suddenly an attractive explosion of the most beautiful colors. Hellow blues and oranges and hints of pink! We made some raisin bread sandwiches (delicious bread by Brödladan, the best bakery in our area- and they are...

Wednesday Wanderings (06)

What comes first, the weather or your mood? Or is it the mood that decides your interpretation of the light? Most days, foggy and dark weather makes me happy but in a very calm way. The last few days however I feel like it's time for...

Wednesday Wanderings (05)

Snow and more snow, gently smothering all sounds, covering all the colors. What remains is an almost black an white world. Until, perhaps, the sun comes out. Surrounded by more snow than we can grasp, we escape to the lake. White and frozen. The snow crunches under our boots and except our own...
