Someone took the Zzzzell out of the Weger

This is a different post, coming from me – but I´m upset.

Renee Zellweger claims her disturbingly new look comes from living healthy. I´m amazed, because apparently living healthy changes the shape of your eyes and face dramatically which I definately had no clue about.

Or, it might just be that it´s bullsh*t and Renee hopes that we actually didn´t look at her during her years in showbiz.

Oh, sweet Renee – I wish I was your friend. If I was, I would have told you – before the butcher hacked away your face – that you were pretty lovely before. I would have told you that your trademark were your eyes and you´d be whoever without them, just like Jennifer Grey without her equally trademark nose.

Did you ever ask her about her career after she changed her nose?

You should have.

I would have told you that I can understand that some botox and fillers are needed in your business, because I actually do – by some reason old, male actors get a pass but female don´t. I would have told you that I can feel the winds of age myself as I´ll turn 42 next year and for sure don´t have to show my driver´s license when I buy wine in the liquer store anymore.

But here´s the deal;

you have just erased everything that was you and therefore everything that was of interest to me. The face I´ve learned to love ages ago – not because you were some girl next door but because you were beautiful – is so gone that I wouldn´t recognize you if I tried. I actually stare at the photos above as I write this, trying so hard to find you in there somewhere without succeeding.

Gone you are, bye bye baby.

Now; why would I pay to see Renee Zellweger from now on when you´re replaced by someone else? I would seriously just get distracted, because if I watched a movie with you now I´d go ”gosh, it really doesn´t look like her” all through.

I´ve just lost interest, and I really don´t think that it was what you were aiming for.

If I had been your friend, I´d tell you to get more friends – the kind that shouts ”are you out of your freaking mind” if you tell them that you´re thinking of reshaping your whole face. I can only imagine what it´s like to work in a business so harsh and brutal that you feel something like this is needed, I can only imagine that you are somehow pretty lonely no matter how many that´s standing around you.

But you know, Dr Seuss weren´t that wrong when he wrote;

There´s noone alive that is Youer than You

and someone just took the Zzzzell out of the Weger.

May it never happen again.

Oh la la – what a weekend I had!

I will tell you all about my weekend in Stockholm as soon as possible, but let me first show you this pic I borrowed from Joacims Instagram:

10456786_10152376348088372_6098066704536967982_n

Isn´t that a great photo or what – all of these amazingly good looking people were my friends in high school (which is so long ago that I won´t even admit how long). We met up in Stockholm during the weekend and I will say this:

there´s something special with people who´ve known you during such an important time in life

It is actually funny how easy it was to just pick up the conversation from years ago. I laughed, laughed and laughed again until both my stomach and face hurt – and then I laughed some more which made the mascara run down my cheeks transforming me into a raccoon.

We were serious too though, like when we were eating dinner at Björk Bar & Grill. It´s hard to laugh while stuffing oneself with great food and a couple of equally great drinks.

But those ten minutes were the exception.

Good times I tell you – and we´ll try to repeat it. It is quite hard to gather a bunch of grown ups since everyone has a thousand things on their to do-list, but we´ll try.

So that was the prime of the weekend, though I had a good time overall. Stay tuned for the rest!

Take care!

Going to Stockholm tomorrow

Well, I´m going to Stockholm by train early tomorrow morning – and yet I haven´t packed a thing as I write this.

But you know; it always works out in the end and I´m at my best under pressure.

(or so I tell myself)

I´m very, very giddy about this trip anyway, it will be so much fun to meet my old friends, walk around the city in my own pace and visit the museums. I´ll keep you posted, be so sure!

Until then;

Take care you sweet people!

Dream a little dream of me

Stars shining right above you
Night breezes seem to whisper, I love you
Birds singin’ in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me

sovrum

I do so not want to leave this place right now.

Darn Monday.

Soon something new in my garden

Since I´m a little down as I´m cleaning out everything that´s dying in my garden, I had to treat myself to something new.

(the pics are borrowed from odla.nu where I ordered these)

I´ll mix these up in big and small pots and I think it will look absolutely lovely when it´s done. Fantastic colors and shapes that will contrast in a great way.

Yum, yum.

So it has been a calm weekend; playing board games with the rascals Friday evening, just having one rascal home during Saturday night since the oldest slept at a friends house – and today the youngest has been away half of the day at soccer.

Just what I needed actually, made it possible to get things done around the house in a more efficient way. I´m trying to stay ahead now so everything is in order before my four day trip to Stockholm next Thursday. Will be so great!

Take care sweeties!

Loving the colors

I´m telling you that the colors around me are wonderful right now, and not only the colors of the leaves.

These raspberries for example – can´t get enough of them! So juicy and golden, a treat to the eye just as much and the mouth. Every evening I´m picking them for my rascals and they love them.

And the flowers in my sun room are now fall-ish with their red hues, and with their vividness they make me forget that there won´t be any flowers at all soon.

A comfort to my soul.

blomma

This last week has been much colder, I´m suddenly needing my coat and the rascals have asked me where last winters hats and gloves are.

Oh well. It will all be good.

Well HELLO – now I remember…

… the great perk with fall besides the coloring of the leaves: new shoes!

tamaris

I fell a little bit in love with these ones  when I saw them – and even more so when I tried them on the first time.

Now; those of you who´ve endured pain for weeks when trying to break in new shows; please raise your hand…

*waving like a maniac myself*

But these? No discomfort, no pain what so ever. I just put my feet in and walked away into the sunset – amazing I tell you!

The brand is Tamaris, check them out if you enjoy fancy though comfy.

Now please excuse me; I have two new book in the house – and a glass of wine to go with it.

Will be just wonderful.

Take care!

It´s no denying it…

… fall is in the air.

I can see the leaves shifting from green to yellow and red – and even though my favourite seasons are spring and summer, I can appreciate the beautiful colors.

I´m also enjoying the fact that I´ll have patience to read more again – that is not what I usually spend my summers doing, but when the weather gets colder it´s so perfect to sit under a blanket and just read away. Maybe with a little glass of wine in the side.

So I guess I´ll endure. Considering the coloring of the rascals and myself, we do go excellent with the colors of fall as the redheads we are. Maybe I should just focus on that.

And truly – summer ain´t over until I´ve harvested my last tomato.

Good morning world!

This was the first thing I saw when I opened my eyes this morning:

140913_2_web Aww, you little fur monkey – how sweet you are.

Can you see that she´s screaming feed me you lazy human? Oh, she is. Always hungry, always hoping for a treat.

I ignored her for a while and just took my moment in bed. Saturday mornings are the best, just knowing that I don´t have to wake the rascals up or rush away to work. Many years ago I worked some weekends and hence got days off in the middle of the week instead – but those mornings never compared to Saturday mornings. It kind of felt fake.

My oldest (and hubby) is on his way to buy a synthesizer. We already have three in this house since hubby has played all his life, but nowadays the rascals play too and they don´t necessarily want the same sound effects and such. So big rascal has saved up some money and will buy a good, used one that will be his and his only.

(though I´m pretty sure his brother will be allowed to use it)

Therefore it´s quiet in the house with half of the family gone. I´m enjoying it especially much since I´m guessing the synthesizer will go warm around the clock when they return. It´s not that I don´t love when they play – on the contrary actually, they are good at it – but maybe I´m just not as keen on listening to the same tune over and over, until they nail it perfectly…

I wish you the best of days sweeties – take care!

Oh goodness, how long it has been!

I´m actually scratching my head wondering why I haven´t been posting anything for so long.

I love my blog, but during those very intense work weeks before summer I somehow lost that extra energy which would have kept me posting during normal circumstances. And the more time that passed, the easier it was to just not do it.

And yet I love my blog – isn´t that weird?

So I figure I´ll have to try and get my groove back, starting with a little catch up of what has happened since the last post. Some of you may have seen some of these pics from my Instagram account which I actually managed to update now and then during this time.

I have been a very happy harvester at least; my chili pepper, apple cucumber, tomatoes and raspberries have all been rewarding me in plenty. I had doubts about the tomatoes but they came through in the end.

My sweet, big rascal celebrated his 12th birthday. Wow. His last year as a non teen – I did (as always) not see that one coming. Though I should have, kids are known to grow.

I´ve heard.

12

We´ve been out and about in nature:

10544775_10152694203544521_3558022622045541287_n

I´ve started my riding class again (wohoo)…

10597329_1596016513958921_2080543791_n

… and I´ve actually been running quite a lot since I´m doing my first marathon in Stockholm next year..! I figured it would be cool to pull that off, having MS and all. Now I figure I´m insane, but I´m definatly aiming to cross the finish line.

On my knees if I have to.

I´ll go to Stockholm in a couple of weeks and that will be super fun! I´m going on my own and will visit museums and such – and meet up with a bunch of old friends of mine. Some of them I haven´t seen in real life for an eternity and since they are all very nice I´m looking forward to it so much!

I´ll definately share that experience with you all.

Oh, so – how have you been sweeties?! Thank you for the emails and shout outs, it´s nice to know that you´ve been here wondering where the heck I am. :-)
