He must have been totally lost that day :-)


It has been a while since we had an autumn this warm and I like it 🙂 This time last year we had snow and cold and it just continued like that all winter. Having grown up in a coastal town I’m not used to a cold winter. For me nothing says Yule as when the rain pours down outside  🙂 🙂 🙂 The few times winter actually came winds did too and there’s nothing worse than living in a coastal town when that happens. No matter how much clothes one wears it doesn’t take long until the bones in the body is deep frozen 🙂 🙂




But I did actually enjoy those even fewer days when it was cold with no wind and sunshine as well. It happened so few times that I think I remember them all to be honest 🙂 🙂 I remember one year when I was with my friend at his family’s holiday house by the ocean on a school winter vacation. It was so cold that the salt water was covered with ice and it was thick enough to carry us. Even if we knew the ice would hold it still was very exiting since salt water ice is so much more fragile than normal ice.




They had a small pond nearby too and we could use that for ice skating and there was no risk of that ice breaking, the pond was frozen all they way to the bottom 🙂 🙂 But I think that was the only time I actually enjoyed snow, ice and winter. I think the stork may have flown very wrong when he was delivering me. I know I was supposed to be born on a tropical island living on fish and coconuts 🙂 🙂




Have a great day!

    • Tjänare Monne!

      Ja en mild och varm göteborgsvinter vill jag ha nu 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  1. hi christer! i always loved snow even when i was small. we would go out and play in the snow all day. we would build snow forts and fill them with cndles and the inside would turn to ice. we would only go in the house to change our gloves. i sure hope we get lots of snow this year. it is a cold rainy day here so i don’t know if we will get many trick or treaters! happy halloween even if you don’t celebrate it! joyce

    • Hi Joyce!
      Some years we did get enough snow to make snow men and snow lanterns as we called them, smaller variants of Your snow forts 🙂

      It seems You will get the cold winter this year instead of us, or at least an early start of winter

      Have a great Halloween!

  2. Hi Christer,

    So that’s where my autumn went! You’re having it. 🙂
    It’s 52F and sunny outside right now but the snow is still hanging around on the grass and in the woods. It doesn’t look like Halloween at all. Unless the sun works overtime today, the kids are going to have to trick or treat between the snow piles.

    Who must have been totally lost on which day?

    Rocky is wandering about the house grumbling. He can’t decide if he wants to be inside or out. Outside is more interesting and he would stay out there if I stayed out with him. I am inside spackling walls with pink stuff that turns white when it dries. My hallway is now dirty white with bright pink polka dots and stripes. One more step completed but several more steps to go. And then I can start again on another room. Yippee. :-\

    Enjoy the day!

    • Hi Caryn!
      Yeah and we’ll keep it 🙂 🙂 🙂

      The stork that delivers the babies 🙂 🙂 🙂 It actually says so in the text 🙂 🙂

      None of my dogs needs my company if there’s snow outside 🙂 🙂 They would stay out there all the time if I allowed them too, well Nova might get a bit cold after a couple of hours though 🙂

      I’m thinking of starting with my walls here in the cottage next spring 🙂

      Have a great day!

      • Oh! Duh. My brain must be addled with snow and spackle fumes. 🙂 I was looking for a hidden object in the first photograph.

        By spring I should be a wallpaper removal and resurfacing specialist. I’ll pop over and give you a hand. 🙂

    • Hi pattyskypants!
      Thank You 🙂
      We had rather warm winters here for almost ten years until two years ago, I do hope we’ll go back to warm winters this year 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!

  3. living on fish and cocnuts sounds good to me right now, we have snow threatening today, its all around us and it will stay till april. Beautiful photos, keep warm,

    • Hi Laurie!
      I think that would be a good diet 🙂
      No risk of being cold here at the moment, it is really warm for the season now 🙂

      Have a great day!

  4. Vi har också varmt, men…efter att ha kollat tillbaka till förra hösten så upptäckte jag att det var ingen större skillnad då. Kanske bara några grader kallare (men dom gör ju en viss skillnad), inte mer. Däremot så tror jag att fastlandet har det betydligt varmare än normalt!
    Dom här varma och behagliga höstarna var ju en av orsakerna att vi flyttade hit till Gotland från Stockholm och precis som du skriver så jar det varit både härliga höstar och härliga vintrar – tills för två år sen. Visserligen har vi inte haft det så vansinnigt kallt, men jäklar vad snö det har varit…..och det vill vi absolut inte se igen! Eller hur!?

    • Tjänare Susie!
      Här är det mer abrut byte mellan säsongerna 🙂 Ena dagen sommar andra höst och frost 🙂 🙂 Här har det inte varit lika varmt sedan 1952 sade de på radion idag. Jag njuter varje sekund av det :-.)

      Nä snö behöver jag akldrig mera se i mitt liv 🙂 🙂

      Ha det gott!

  5. I tried to leave a comment last night and it wouldn’t let me. Not sure if it was Blogger or WordPress giving me problems!
    (maybe it was the ghost and goblins! 😀 )
    Are you not proud?! Your cottage looks SO beautiful and fresh. Great paint job!
    What’s the smaller building? A Potting Shed? A Potty Shed? (just kidding, I know you have indoor plumbing :D)
    Seriously, what is that building?
    well, hope this posts OK….
    🙂 – Cindi

    • Hi Cindi!
      You never know when it comes to the internet 🙂 🙂

      I think that actually is an old potty shed 🙂 It doesn’t belong to me but to a neighbor. I think they use it as a place to put garden furnitures during winter now days.

      Have a great day!

  6. Oh, I know about those coastal towns. I started out in Newburyport MA and well remember those winters. That’s what I thought of when I was at the Market on Saturday. It took almost all day for my hands to lose their red color! The pictures are so pretty, today, and I love your story. Not to mention, Deer facing left, Deer facing right. Enjoy your tea and this beautiful fall weather.

    • Hi Sharlene!
      Winter in a coastal town can be terrible with those nasty cold winds that comes from the ocean! In a way they were much colder than they are here many times.

      Have a great day!

  7. I commented on this post and I don’t see it, or your comment back??? I wonder what happened. I wrote something about the pond that was frozen all the way to the bottom..plus your photo of the deer in their flight to get away. No matter…the pictures are great…
    Rained all day long today..
    I went to a yard sale at a school..and the tarp they had covering the booth gave way with a gust of wind just as I came out from under it and I got drenched! Serves me right for buying another “bunny” that I do not need. :):) Tonight we have a fire in the fireplace..and I love it…s’wonderful!!


    • Hi Mona!
      That comments seems to have disappeared somewhere?! I hate when that happens!

      Yes my pond did freeze all the way to the bottom but I don’t think that happened until late January, but the natural pond a bit away is much more shallow so that one froze much earlier.

      When it comes to bunnies I don’t think anyone needs them 🙂 🙂 I really don’t like bunnies, I’m actually a bit afraid of them 🙂 🙂 But I don’t think anyone deserves to drenched that way 🙂

      Conmgratulations to the rain and the fire in the fireplace 🙂

      Have a great day!
