… “We Are The Children” ! Truly! Good Night! (And the storytelling beginning last week continues another Tuesday.) Thank you Karin ♡♡♡♡♡ for capturing the Magic, Beautiful and Love-Worthy! A day of STRONG relief – at the visit with Dr Fernlund, the Heart Doctor – with a 70-30 something of keeping Mika’s pacemaker as-is! Deep breathing out of relief! Now. Sleep!

Closing a Circle – Ending a NadineWeek | #blog366 #photolog #NadineTheHeroine

Today. Leaving Nadine. From Norrköping to Arvika, then mother with her guy behind the wheel by car to her Norwegian home in Eidsvoll. Here, last leg – the regional train from Kristinehamn to Arvika, just before the arrival. A sad moment of separation. Last Saturday. The reverse. A happy reunion. Getting her from Arvika to Norrköping, here in the travelling to her Swedish home.  Soon again, we hope! Miss you already, Mika’s big sister! Until next time, be well, and hope you get a good last part of your Summer’s School’s Out! I love you unconditionally, #NadineTheHeroine!

Boule, Fun and Zootropolis | #blog366 #photolog

Today, Nadine played Boule for the first time. She thought it was quite boring, but I enjoyed it. They have a great Boule field at Folkparken. After that, we played with Mika, and at home we made a little mirtor groupfie. Ending the day with Zootropolis! Great fun! It’s a bit of a tradition to view a great animated feature movie last night before leaving her with her mum. Which happens tomorrow! A great last day of this NadineWeek!

Dream to fly, ice cream to eat | #blog366 #photolog

Nadine and I saw a 3D/360° film at the Dome of Visualiseringscenter C today, via gift cards from Anna Öst (A 50 year b-day gift – thanks!). It was a cool half hour with the film Dream To Fly, about our dream to be up in the sky. Edutainment! Later in the afternoon, we ate icecream at Halvars Glass. Great! Thank you Hedwig for making it happen! I also trained aikido tonight, so yes. I am really tired. Good night!

Fusible beads workshop – Pokémon Themed | #blog366 #photolog

Today, we had a workshop and made some fusible beads motives inspired by Pokémon, given the present Pokémon Go-hype (and its pixel-friendly nature makes it very appropriate too). To the left, Pikachu by Karin. And I made a Pokémon ball. Nadine made some as well (not in photo). Fun! And, no. I am not playing the game. Karin does! Good for exercise! Art, fun and play for health!

LED Light Bling Bling Workshop and Strömparken | #blog366 #photolog

Today, we were at Visualiseringscenter C and attended a workshop where you could make your own LED Light Bling Bling, with a container made of a 3D printer! Karin and Nadine made one each. And Mika, well, he was elsewhere! After dinner, we went to Strömparken – Deshi in company too! Hot days continues, so it was kinda ok to hang around at the air conditioned Vis C after all …

Hemester Highlights | #blog366 #Family

A day at Himpabadet. Himmelstalundsbadet. The Swimming pools at Himmelstalund field, nearby some of the most rich rock carvings in Sweden, and a very very very wide green field, uniquely close to an inner city. Love it! Pics, speaking for themselves. Nadine, Mika, Karin and me. Heat wave. At 30° C, today. Phew! Sunny Sunday! Fun!

NadineTrip and Lifestreaming | #blog366 #Nadine

Today I fetced Nadine in Arvika over the day, and we got home by 5.30pm. I have reactivated somewhat lifestreaming more frequent, and shared full day through Facebook with checkins and photos, which I auto-syndicated to my Tumblr feed, as an experiment. You can see the Tumblr feed in the sidebar of my blog (or scrolling down beyond the posts if you are on some mobile platforms). Archives fromJuly, shows more than half of posts the last 24 hours! After we arrived in Norrköping, we had dinner, and Nadine shared some belated presents, which she got from a classmate. Much…

W as in World, RE:LOVED | #blog26 #wishlist

The name of this blog – and my personal tagline/vision/mantra/force/motivation – is RE:LOVE THE WORLD. The About Page tells you what this means – “a world, re:loved, is a world where you meet your fellow human being with love and respect, and can expect to be met with the same”. The stream of news last days/months/years can makes your heart dark. But – if we leave all terror and alarmism in the press, the world, in fact, is getting better! There, graphs, presented in conjunction with prof Steven Pinker article in The Guardian – also, check Hans Rosling, always! – a TED…

L as in Loved Ones | #blog26 #wishlist

Let’s start off with some here-and-now pics. We are in Valdemarsvik for the weekend, arrived today with the full family, cats included. What we do and what happens – follow Karin on Instagram (@akrogirl)! I am sitting on the second floor of Karin’s mum’s lovely house. The Tablet shines. I have a little remote keyboard connected to it. Mindmapped where to take this posting. Directions. Loved ones! Yes. Family! But, before that – let’s make a little historical odyssey. All You Need Is Love – “it was 49 years ago today” Sgt. Pepper told the band to play! And, they…
