Heart in the Light

Frozen poetry
Frozen Poetry

Poetry in the night lit up by the moonlight. What I’ve missed catching poetry with a camera. ❤

I am happy and full of creative desire these days.Last Saturday, I won the lottery.:)
I, who rarely buy lottery tickets, won on the trot. The earnings paid for a new camera. An Olympus. Stylus SP-100EE.
I did not win much but it was enough to cover 75% of the camera's price. I am so happy and grateful. Now I have a travel camera for my India trip. ❤
Next subject to save to or win? is an laptop 🙂

Today’s garden work


I planted my hazel tree, Took away a lot of weeds from the vegetable beds too. Some bulbs were planted in the soil. Little rain soaked my hair.

Tomorrow I intend to take care of the strawberry plants ;

“When the growing season is over, mow or cut foliage down to one inch and mulch plants about 4 inches deep with straw, pine needles or other organic material. This can be done after the first couple of frosts.”

I was to work tonight but there was change in the schedule. I work tomorrow instead.

Autumn light and Mercury’s retrograd


The days get shorter and darker, and a way to light up the fall is to light candles. The light creates a pleasant atmosphere and give off heat in the cold. Every season has its charm.

I worked last night so today I am tired but I went and bought radiators spray so I can paint the radiator in the hall and in the kitchen.. Actually, I had in mind to plant a red hazel I found for half the price when the market garden had a sale but today, well, it blew icy winds and it rained. I bought the tree to plant near the greenhouse. The hot summer taught me a lesson. Inside the greenhouse, without protection, inside there is pure sauna and some of my plants died of dehydration.
And the red hazel should fit well with the Japanese wage. Most of all, I love the artistic in the bent hazel branches.
If it does not rain tomorrow I’ll finish with what must be done in the garden. A small corner still waiting for some allium bulbs that I also bought. Late fall is a good time to find cheap bulbs for a few crowns..

If it rains tomorrow I’ll paint the radiators and will continue repairing and restoration of what I can in the house. The greatest damage, that gets worse every rainy day, I can not fix myself. I have to save up so I can hire a skilled craftsman who does a better job than the one that made the misery. But I try to take one thing at a time.

Yesterday I read something interesting about energies and solar storms in the atmosphere and that we are in Mercury Retrograde. Mercury’s retrograde is October 4th to the 25th. might explains a lot, maybe it’s not the stress and anxiety that makes me have so much pain in the body these days, I respond to the electronic magnetic field.


So You Think You Can Dance

Michael Dameski (born 7 November 1995 in Sydney) is an Australian dancer, actor and singer of Macedonian descent.
What a fantastically talented dancer who I am convinced will reach as far as Rudolf Nureyev or Mikhail Baryshnikov.
Here you can see another show of his amazing fiery dance.
What a great dancer. I am amazed.!

Awww, my heart!

Cute, right?

Poetry, music and a photo.

I feel honored that my photograph of the summer will decorate the cover of their CD. ❤

Protect your pin code

I did not know it was so easy to steal one’s PIN Code.

There is a new, easy way for bad guys to steal your ATM pin code using an iPhone without you even noticing. What’s even more important to note is how the technology being used could be used to also break into homes and cars that use pin codes for entry.
Not to worry! Mark Rober shares a really simple way to prevent this from happening. Spread the word about how to thwart others from becoming victims.

Fas submarine

It is written very much in Swedish newspapers about the submarine that has been seen in the Swedish archipelago. It makes me remember this illustration I did some years ago about another submarine.

Here is a link to some articles about todays submarine. Damaged Russian sub sought in the archipelago, Svd Armed Forces: Can not exclude Russian submarine, DN No emergencies with Russian military ships – defence ministry. Tass
Russian special ships heading towards Sweden,Expressen

Försvarsmaktens kommenterar medieuppgifter om ubåt

I’m too tired after the night job and today’s sleep to read all the articles about the submarine and who is behind. I just get the submarine Yellow Submarine in mind. I think I’ll rest a little before the next pass.
Wish you all a nice Sunday.
