We haven´t had much of a winter in Stockholm this year. So far. But you always hold your breath as we enter January, because then the snow usually comes if not before. I took this photo Jan 8 and it was breathtakingly beautiful in the morning when I was going to work. It was´t really snow, just frost, but it was a warning that the weather is getting colder.
If you don´t have a proper winter (thank you global warming) then you have to be flexible and work with what you have. This enthusiastic woman is in ski-training on the man-made snow at my local sports field.
Deciding to take a more minimalistic approach to life and most of all things is really an eye-opener in many ways. It is in no way an easy struggle (because a struggle it is in many ways) but it has given me some insights about myself and my life and I will keep going forward.
Pondering New Year (old pic!)
I love New Years!! Not the party part of New Year´s, but the pondering, planning and looking into the future part of New Year. I always get a new calendar for the new year and then I start it off in a traditional way – I enter all the holidays that I´m off work and I make a preliminary plan for the other holidays. That always gets me in the right spirit!
