Catch up and moving on.

You know why I don't post that often, that I hav told you. Another reason is that I have start journaling with pen an paper. I have become obsessed with the Midori TN journaling, specially the style with junk/art/nature style journaling. I might show you one day. 
I have so many thoughts and not many to talk to so journaling has become essential for my well being. More on that later..

First I would like to show you a photo of the view of our lovely town. The old mine is in the front and the sports arena with the ski jumping tower is in the back. In between, lies the city. If you play Pokemon Go in Falun, you will visit the mine more often than usual. It has 7 pokestops within a circle of 200 m wide. The mine is a world heritage and the reason for all the stops. I'm team Mystic and right now in level 20. 

We only have one Pokestop nearby our house, by the church. We use to take night walks to the church and then a walk in the graveyard. 

I succeded with my pumpkins this year. Two of them are really big. I grow mine in a box of 1,5 square meter, in horse poo, and dirt.

We went on a family reunion with Johans relatives. It was his mother and her cousins that met along with families. Funny fact is that her mother and father were second cousins and her uncle and his wife were cousins. So  the word inbreeding were a word heard many times this evening and no one was ashamed to say it. This is how it was long time ago in villages far away from other cities and almost none had a car. It's a saying that the bicycle was a invention of saviour . 
Another quirky thing is that the table was set with cans with this brew. It is juniper brew. Water, yeast, sugar and juniper twigs in a can to ferment. No it doesn't taste well, it taste like mash with murky wood.
Now I'm going to tell you something that might make you angry. We had bought tickets for the Cure concert. I had dressed up and got ready to go, when I couldnt find my ear plugs and that + my current mood made me brake down and skip the concert. Yes, I'm really stupid and yes, I'm ill. I didn't have the energy to spend a total of 5 hours in the car and then coming home in the middle of the night, to go to work the morning after. I was already exhausted (yes after a weekend). Instead we went to the movie to watch Miss Peregrines school for peculiar children. The movie was peculiar and nothing more.
 The old-old firestation (we have a couple) across the street from the cinema is rebuilt to a brewery, it looks interesting inside.
This event was kind of an eye opener of what is going on with myself.  I know the reasons why I feel down and I'm working on these issues. 

Next post that comes up soon will be about the Halloween swap and my new hair style. Doesn't that seems more fun?

  2. Honestly, I can understand you...I'm not saying, that it's normal or that you shouldn't worry, but I'm pretty much in the same boat and I know what you're talking about...I hope you get well soon^^

  3. Great to have you posting. I hope your feeling better soon. I felt a little bit similar to what you have described, but mine was last year. I had no energy to do anything.

    Anyway, on to more happy things, I love your pumpkins they are an amazing size. The inbreeding things quite an interesting. I dunno if I should admit this on my dad's side there was quite a lot of first cousins inter-marrying. They all lived in small farming villages and not huge amount of transport.

    Look forward to the next post.

  4. Jag tröttnar aldrig på att se dina pumpor :)
    Jag är också helkass på att blogga på sistone.

  5. I'm the same way ... all excited about an event and then when it arrives, I wish I didn't have to go. :)

    I've heard mixed reviews about the movie ... some say its fantastic and others just meh. I think the youngest and I will go anyways. Seeing movies together, whether good or bad, is our 'thing'.

  6. You did very well with your pumpkins this year! I am sorry you were feeling ill and had to miss The Cure concert, I hope you feel better soon!
