Happy Valentine´s Day to all of you!

I thought of a picture that would show everything about friendship, love... And I didn´t find one. So I made one.

There´s no picture in the world that can show us everything that love and friendship´s really about. But look at this picture, and maybe you´ll find something that you find important. Or not, and that means I´ve failed completely making this picture...:)

May you have a great day, and spread some looove!

I know some lonely Houses off the Road  
I know some lonely Houses off the Road
A Robber'd like the look of --
Wooden barred,
And Windows hanging low,
Inviting to --
A Portico,
Where two could creep --
One -- hand the Tools --
The other peep --
To make sure All's Asleep --
Old fashioned eyes --
Not easy to surprise!

How orderly the Kitchen'd look, by night,
With just a Clock --
But they could gag the Tick --
And Mice won't bark --
And so the Walls -- don't tell --
None -- will --

A pair of Spectacles ajar just stir --
An Almanac's aware --
Was it the Mat -- winked,
Or a Nervous Star?
The Moon -- slides down the stair,
To see who's there!

There's plunder -- where --
Tankard, or Spoon --
Earring -- or Stone --
A Watch -- Some Ancient Brooch
To match the Grandmama --
Staid sleeping -- there --

Day -- rattles -- too
Stealth's -- slow --
The Sun has got as far
As the third Sycamore --
Screams Chanticleer
"Who's there"?

And Echoes -- Trains away,
Sneer -- "Where"!
While the old Couple, just astir,
Fancy the Sunrise -- left the door ajar!
Emily Dickinson

Okay... You know when see something, and you just don´t know what to think about? Is it cool or really just junk?  Or so weird? I think this is one of those...  Star Wars Light Saber chop sticks? What? Found it @  japantrendshop

Okay, I confess. I´m a Mac - a - holic! I just love my Macbook and my Iphone! It´s just so simple, easy and carefree!

I remember when I had a PC. It was always something wrong; some program wouldn´t work, you had to think about viruses and spyware, and too often the ***** thing crashed, completely.

Of course there´s sometimes problems with a Mac. Like once in a year.

Then there´s a lot of great apps for the Iphone. I mean, with ca 100 000 apps, you`ll find what you want!
The latest app I discovered is called Classics. It`s a collection of classic books (Pride and Prejudice, Gulliver´s Travels, Dracula, Alice in Wonderland, Odyssey, for example). They´re easy to read, and you don´t need a reading light!


So, I´m converted! I´ll go on using my Mac (and other Apple products, too).

Have a great weekend!

As I told you before, somethings wrong with my arm. The doctors don´t really know...   I´ve got a time for a knew xray on thursday. But I´m not supposed to use the arm at all.

That makes things really interesting! You don´t realize how much you need your both hands! I feel so handicapped!  My day goes something like this;

1. Putting clothes on with one hand. It´s pretty easy. Until there´s buttons. And, putting on a bra, (not so often if you´re a man, I suppose), it´s almost impossible!
2. Brushing your teeth. Well, you can brush them, but holding your toothbrush with one hand and putting toothpaste on with the same hand...
3. Taking a shower. Yeah, that´s allright. I squeeze shampoo directly in my hair. And most of the bottles content, too.
4. Breakfast. Making (or not!) a sandwich, coffee (more coffee). And helping the kids. Seriously? Right now the kids are helping me.
5. Driving the kids to school. I´ve driven a few times, but it´s not good for anyones health.
6. Cleaning the house, washing up, doing the dishes, doing the laundry, taking care of our pets etc etc. Well, you can imagine. Somethings I can do, most of them I can´t.
7. I´m used to do yoga everyday, I now I can´t! It feels awful! I´ve tried, though, but it´s not really working out...at all! Same goes for photography, I can´t take pics!
8. Making dinner. Here I have to use my imagination! Creative food, anyone?
9. Helping the kids with their homework, with washing, clothing, putting them to bed etc. I can use my voice as usual, and you do need your voice with kids. I´m pretty good at this. (If the painkillers don´t make me so tired I fall asleep on the couch )
10. Look at 1 and 2

So this is how I get thru the day.

We really don´t give enough credit to people who are disabled, and have to get thru everyday with only one arm!

Before it´s too late. The earthquake in Haiti, it`s so unbelievably horrible! So many people lost their lives, their loved ones, homes, everything... Sitting in a warm house, feeling safe, I just can´t believe it! Let´s do what we can to help the people in Haiti.

Why does it have to be some sort of catastrophe before we really think about these things? It´s so easy to take things for granted, and think "it wont happen to me". Sorry guys, but it can... I thought I´ d never  be in a car crash. Well, I was. I thought I´ d never be seriously ill. Yes, I was (am)... And the worst part for a mum/dad/parent. You don´t think anything will happen to your kid (even if it´s our worst fear). Last autumn, my 7-year old son got a serious infection. We nearly lost him.

But life goes on, and so it should. Today I´m arguing with my son of very trivial things. As usual.

We can´t go on living our lives and be afraid of the worst all the time. But we can, once in a while, pause and think. Think about the great things in our lives, be grateful. Without a disaster. Right?
