The immaterial wishes continues to dominate my wishlist for 2017, a wishlist exercise which I aim to establish as a tradition, beyond my birthday. An exercise done during vacation and holiday times! What I felt during some time, is a bit of lack of inspiration, especially when it comes to create texts or music. My blogging has went down in speed and frequency beyond the #blog365 challenge 2016, and writing more extended essays or texts haven’t been taking place since ending up writing the first full draft of my book that never went into full publishing all the way, or…
Helger. Ja, helger! Vad önskar jag mig av dem? Först och främst – jag vill ha massa fler av dem framåt längs min livsväg! Jag vill spendera dem med min Karin, och om några jordvarv, då och då med både barn och sen kanske till och med barnbarn? Se min önskan gällande dagar! Och jag önskar dem lugna och sköna. Då ges utrymme för återhämtning och annat pyssel som inte får plats måndag till torsdag. Torsdag? Ja, vi vill ha weekendkänsla redan på fredagen! Som denna helg! I fredags, på ett lekspring på dryga fem km, fångade jag solens nedgång…
Yeah! This, I strive for! And this attitude, strive to have it transferred to my family – especially my kids #MikaTheHero and #NadineTheHeroine! The most secure way to get a better world in the future, that is. To learn your kids all that you have, and thus can give.
Today, we celebrated Mika, turning two years of age! We had Hedwig, Jippii and Hanna to visit, so it was great! It doubled as a Mother’s Day, so great to have two gen’s of mothers here. I love this boy like crazy. Thank you Hanna and Hedwig for the gifts!
Mika training with his new shoes! And Spring Première at Halvars Ice Cream!| #MikaTheHero #PhotoStory
Mika has some new shoes, Converse style. We were at the playground at Vasaparken today, and he took the opportunity to train walking with his new shoes. And it went great! Above a slideshow! Afterwards, we rewarded us with the true Norrköping Spring Première – Halvars Glass! Halvars Ice Cream! Delightful, as always. A nice day out! Spring is here! Hooray!
Yesterday, Mika took his first determined strong independent steps! He has taken small cautious steps before, but this was the real thing! Captured on video, here are some still frames from that vid! You can see an Insta-edited version over at @relovetheworld! Proud parents, we are!
Today we were at Folkparken (“People’s Park”), where they at the moment take away some trees that are ill. Fascinating to see the big trucks, right Mika? Then we went to the playground part of the park, in the summerish-feeling spring. Wonderful!
After many years of serving as a chairman of our Aikido and Judo club IF Dojo Norrköping, Leif Kinnersjö (6 Dan Aikido, practising Aikido since the seventies), decided to step down and hand over the leadership. And that is to Kimmo Osen, 4 Dan. Good luck, Kimmo! You’re a great spirit. And thank you, Leif! I know you will get back this Fall (Leif was injured when he was working with some stuff, and had an operation, now in rehab), just to train with us. It has been a sheer pleasure to take part of your vast knowledge and experience of…

Today we went to a clothing and toy swap for babies and kids. We found a decent bunch of clothes for seasons to come – and a new fav toy for Mika! He has spent a great deal of time with it, already. It was a DIY piece, so it feels great. Oh my, is he focused when he is ‘in the zone’, yes! Photo by Karin.
