Rainy Summer

I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend quite some time at our summer-house this summer. The weather hasn’t been the best, but I have enjoyed myself a lot.

There is no rule saying you can’t go out in the rain and wind, but it’s nice to stay indoors and regain some heat before you go out again for a little walk or a trip out to pick some berries.

Sitting indoors with a cup of coffee enjoying a good book you’ve been meaning to read for some time looking out the window out on the rain can be very cosy!

There is also the opportunity to do this under the terrace roof, if the temperature is comfortable enough or you turn on the heating ovens.

And come night time there has been some lovely sunsets. They come quite late in summertime because the sun, that hides away for the most part this year, really doesn’t like to go to bed in the summer months. I don’t live up north in Norway where it never goes to bed, but it stays up late.

When I first moved in to my apartement it was quite unpersonal  and actually tidy.

When I moved in

Now that I have lived here a while it’s starting to feel more like home. But with that comes a lot of mess, me being how I am.

More personal an homy livingroom.

I like it better this way. Now all I need is a new lamp. But as I have problems finding out what I want I’ll just have to stick to the candles.

Thank goodness I tidied up a bit in my livingroom this morning as I got a spontaneus visit from a friend. I also need to tidy up the rest of my apartement as my dad’s coming over for dinner here on the norwegian father’s day tomorrow. Having guests over is really a great way of actually getting you’re place tidy and clean. I should have them more often.
