Summer is here.
For us the summer is incomplete without a visit to the summerhouse.
The feel of a sunwarmed livingroom, when we open the door. That first morning when we step out the back door, and feel the long grass beneath our feet. The morning swim, nothing gives you a head straight like that, the cool water against bedwarm skin... The sound of the boats passing by and the seagulls saying good morning...... Early mornings, and everything goes in slow motion. The days are long, the nights are longer, the sun never really doesn't seem to let go. This is the season to enjoy a long breakfast - every day

Scandinavian summers have a coolnes to them, that can't be found elsewhere. The soul this season brings, is like no other I've ever encountered..... Even the great scandinavian painters let the soul of this season inspire them.

There is time to read, time to eat ice cream, time to play, time to swim and time to just be. Let the sun keep you warm, and feel the happiness tickle you. Feel the warm sand on your toes.....

The time to create is also here. Take it with you. "To relax is to do something else...." Let the season inspire you; The colours, the sounds, the smells and the food.

This is still a few weeks away for me, but I'm preparing myself. What books should I read? What sewing projects do I want to bring? Which stories am I going to read to the girls? There is a lot to consider.....

Meanwhile I can visit my sister's porch and pretend to be on holiday.....

Have a lovely day
