Creates me is creative corner outside 🎨🖼😊

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

As some of you know I really like to paint. It’s my hobby, it’s my “place” to relax and have my own “time out”, and it’s, of course, my possibility to be creative and play with colours, imagination and illustrations, and I even gets more inspiration when I’m painting. Inspiration for some new things, imagination and illustrations to paint as well as inspiration in my life, or for my life, is probably more correct 😊.

For a couple of weeks ago I was finish with 25 glassbottles to Natasja, and after that I haven’t paint very much. I needed to use my focus on a bit other things for a tiny little while 😊. I have a “bad” habit to forget “the time” when I first find my brushes, painting, glassbottles or canvas 😅. And sometimes it’s just not the best to forget the time 😊.

Anyway,- I miss painting, and now when it’s so lovely summer weather here in Spain, with long and warm summer evenings, I wanted to paint a bit outside instead of inside when I actually have both the space for it and the possibility for it 🎨.

So my last days in my holiday I have “created” me a “creative corner” on the roof terrace 🎨,- and I really like to sit outside and paint, it’s so relaxing 😊.

It’s not something I can do during the whole year, and I have actually a “creative corner” inside in the house too. But at the moment it’s a bit empty, at the same time ready for me to continue painting inside when the weather not “allowed” anymore painting outside.

My creative place inside,- clean and ready in case and also when I need to “move” back inside again 🎨

It’s just one challenge to paint outside and that’s the (fuc….shi…🙄) wind 🌬. ( I don’t like the wind very much, except from when I need my washed clothes to dry).

That one can sometimes come as a really big and windy suprice sometimes 😳. And it’s a bit of power in the wind too. Thing can fly “here and there and everywhere” 😳. And that’s not good.

I’m actually not sure how many nights I have run up to the roof in just my underwear (😅) because of the strong wind, to check that I did remember to “safe” the different things from blowing away with the wind 🌬.

In general I do remember to in a way “close down” the roof terrace when I go to bed, but there’s always something I do forget 😅. In general it’s only a problem when the wind “plays around” if I forget something. Normally it’s not a problem, but it’s not always I know anything about any wind before in the middle of the night 🌬. It’s comes so “suddenly” , do it’s “job”, and “goes away” suddenly too. Suddenly can be some hours, but it can also be so silent and whoops,- there comes the wind a bit unexpected, and other times the wind “swings by” just for some minutes, but still can do a bit of a damage 😳.

Luckily, in general, it’s not to windy during the summertime, but just in case I’m “prepared” so my painting stuff doesn’t fly away with the wind 🌬.

Not a to bad my new outside “painting corner” 😊. The umbrella cover for some sun, and the “wall” for my different paintings stuffs. That one can be a bit tricky if it’s to much wind, but so fare so good 😊

So today I have both enjoyed the sun 🌞 on the roof terrace as well as paint a bit 🎨. A nice and relaxing Sunday before I’m starting at work again tomorrow. But I should really wish I had one more week with holiday, one week to just paint 🥰🎨.

I have some winebottles I did started to paint on some few months ago, but suddenly I needed to change my focus a bit, pack down a bit, and special start on the glassbottles to Natasja. So I have some bottles that need to be finish soon. Those glassbottles are also gifts, but they are gifts to my family and friends in Norway 🧡. And I actually manage to finish one of the bottles today 😊.

Isn’t this nice? I’m going to show you this a bit better one other day when it’s “on the way” to Norway 😊

It’s going to be some busy days the upcoming week and the week after, so I’m happy I used some of my time this holiday together with some of my friends as well as time just for me and for some painting too 😊🎨. And I’m glad I just can go up to the roof terrace and lay a bit in the sun, or paint a bit when I need a timeout and relaxing time during the next days 🥰. And then try my very best to forget the time as well as not forget the time ⏳. In a way, – I have my own “soul and mind” spa up there in the roof now,- if you understand what I mean? 😊

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

Somd bottles “waiting” to be “finish and ready ” for some new “owners” 😊.

I have “created” me an outside “panting corner” on the roof during the last days 🎨. My own place for a timeout and relaxing, be creative and get new inspiration 😊. My own little “mind and soul spa” I can enjoy during the summertime 🌞.

Is it back or is it forward? 🕰⏳

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 🧡

Two times a year we ( at least we in Europe) turn our watches and the time back or forward with one hour. And now it’s that “time of the year” again 🕰.

We do it in the end of October and then again in the end of March.

To be honest, I in general never remember what way I’m going to turn my watch. I actually find it out with Google 😅. Or that’s not totally true. Because I’m writing this text I used Google to find out what time it will be on this time tomorrow. One hour before or one hour later? 🤔

Then it’s back to “summertime” 🌞

This time it will be one hour forward, so when the time was 02.00 yesterday it will be 03.00 at the same time today. If you understand what I mean? And we get something called “summertime ” 🌞.

If I haven’t Googled this today I have just taken a look at my wakeup clock on my table and the watch on my phone. My phone will have the “correct” time, and the other watch the “wrong” time. It’s not more difficult then that, special when this turn back and forward thing happens from Saturday to Sunday night.

It can, of course, be a bit more challenging for those who are going to work this Sunday morning if their watch is one hour to fast or one hour to late.

Well,- my phone is for some reason 6 minutes to fast – always 😳😅. I don’t know why, but it’s okay for me. Then I know I’m in general not to late to work, appointment, meetings and others things and stuffs ⏳. I don’t like to be to late, it’s stressing me a bit. It’s better to be a bit before…for me at least 😊. So maybe that’s why my mobile watch is a bit to fast? A bit “before”? Because of me?

It doesn’t matter when the time turns back or forward my watch on my phone is always 6 minutes to fast, and has been like that since I got my phone for soon 2, 5 years ago.

Well,- we in Europe lost one hour this day, but maybe, if we continue turn the watch like this we will get one hour back again in the end of October. Then we are back to “wintertime” again ❄.

I’m ready to enjoy the “summertime” as best as I can 🌞

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡 Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog today 🧡

See you soon 😊

From “wintertime” to “summertime” ❄🌞

The “summertime” is turned into our watches and lifes ( at least in Europe) 🌞. I, in general, don’t remember what way to turn my watch. One hour back? Or one hour forward? 🤔 I just wait and see the next morning what has happen in my mobile, or I can use Google if I want 😅.

2 weeks of holiday is over for this time 🌞🏖

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you all 🧡

My 2 weeks holiday is over for this time, – and it has been a nice holiday even a bit fare away from what I had in mind, and what I did planned. But isn’t that the way it is sometimes?

I have used to many days of my holiday to wait for an internet technician to come and fix my internet line in my home 🙄. And that has not been very fun at all, but I should been use to this now- to wait. In Spain “they” have a bad habit to put people “on wait”. I don’t like that at all,- special when they tells me that they are coming “today” or in around 72 hours, or tomorrow, or even more concrete, like Saturday at 13.00. Then I actually do except them to come. But it hasn’t been like that for mostly 3 weeks 🙄. When that’s said, – they actually did come this Saturday at 13.00,- and the only thing they needed to do was to change my router to my internet. It took them less then 30 minutes 🙄. So why let me wait for closely 3 weeks? Special also when they knew I use internet to my work? 😔

But okay,- that’s the way it is,- in Spain it is “manana- manana” ( it means tomorrow tomorrow), or in my “case” “semana-semana” (next week- next week) 😅. This is a part of the culture here, a part and a habit I really dislike and also think its very disrespectful.

My plan for my holiday was to work with my blog, and also do some freelance writing work for around 4 hours every day in the morning,- and then just enjoy my holiday. Use time on my own, use time at the pool, at the beach and together with my children and my friends 😊. But because of the “promise” that there would be an internet technician “today, tomorrow, or in 72 hours”, I have, as I told you, been home and waiting for nothing for many days 😅. But I still manage to create a nice holiday,- special because I needed to “put my self together” and try my best to change my focus from this irritating “off line thing and status” in my home. Positive focus does in general help,- even it’s not “switched over” in just one minute 😊.

I was out for dinner with the team I’m working in. Thd costumer service agent team,- and it was a very nice and cozy dinner 😊.

I have spent a couple of days in La Cala, and visiting my friend Natasja. I also did some work when I was in her home, as well as had a great time together with her 😊.

I have had some relaxing days in the sun and with the pool too 🌞. And I have enjoyed to use some times at my “secret beach” as well. “My” beach that remains me on it’s own way about the Norway as well as the summertime in Norway 🌞. A place where I really enjoy to spend time, summer as winter. To be in the sun, or just watch the ocean and the waves 🏖. Just recover and relax 😊.

I have spent times together with my children, but most because I actually do live together with two of them at the moment 😊. Not quite the “quality- time” I had in my mind,- but still a nice time filled up with joy and laughter 😊.

I have also been “flinging” a bit 😉,- together with the “fling” I started to fling a bit together with before Spain went into “lock down” in March. We actually did started to flirt and fling the 14. February,- but had a tiny “hold” because of the 9 weeks of quarantine in Spain, and also a tiny little bit because of me 🙄. I’m not ready for anything more then a “fling” at the moment. My “experience” from “the bump”/the ex” that dropped me of in Spain is deeper then I thought. So I need a lots of time for just to learn and understand that most men aren’t like “the bump”. I’m working on it, I’m working with myself when it comes to this experiences from earlier in my “relationship- life” 😊.

Anyway,- I have had some nice days together with my “fling”, eating good food, nice conversation and a lots of good laughs too, and spent time on the beach as well 🏖. But I haven’t spent as much time with some of my other friends here in Spain,- that was actually my plan. Hopefully it will be a bit more time for that when we turn around to August 🌞. And I also should been out for a coffee with an earlier colleague of mine too. I hope we can manage that some of the next days 😊.

All in all it has been a nice holiday, special when I focus on the days I didn’t waited for an internet service and technician to come, and managed to fill up my days with nice things and stuff, and create a holiday worth to remember 🌞😊.

Soon it’s back to work, and not just “work from home” , but also at the office. We are moving back to the office now, and also into a new office,- so that will be nice. I do like best to work from my home,- but as long as I like my job and my colleagues good people too, it will be fine to be at the office. I will manage to work in the office as well. I have done it before, many times 😊. And who knows,- maybe I can get the possibility to work more from my home in the future? 😊

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for using your time and dropping by my blog 🧡

See you soon 🌞

From my “secret beach”- “my” place in Spain. A place that’s reminds me of Norway on its own way 🌞

Two weeks of holiday is over for this time. My holiday didn’t went quite the way I had in my mind 😊. But it’s still became a nice, relaxing and cozy holiday with some great memories 😊. And I have spent some relaxing days at my “secret beach” too 🏖.

The swimming pool is open 🏊‍♀️ 😊 ….with a lock 🗝.

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you all 🧡

The swimming pool in the community I’m living in is open now,- and that feels so good 😊. It’s getting warmer and warmer every day,- and it’s not impossible to enjoy the sun at my balcony anymore. Well, – not at daytime at least. It feels like it is at least 50 degrees up there when the sun is shining 😅.

Normally the swimming pool is open up in April, but this April has been a bit different then earlier April’s 😊. This April we was in quarantine and curfew in Spain, but slowly, slowly got our “freedom” back during the lasts weeks 😊. And one of those “freedoms” is be able to use the swimming pool 🏊‍♀️.

There are some few restrictions when it comes to use the pool,- but not to many, and not very difficult to be able to follow either 😊.

We are not allowed to use the toilets that are in the pool area, but that’s not a problem. We live very close to the pool and will manage to use our toilet in the home,- if it should be necessary 🧻. And this 2 metre distance is important to keep, except from the people you are living together with. There’s no sun chairs or umbrellas either this year, so it looks a bit empty the pool area 🏖. But I have my own beach chairs and beach umbrella we can bring with us to the pool 🏖.

It looks a bit empty and naked our pool area without the sun beds and the umbrellas 🏖

And then there is this lock I actually don’t see the point with 🗝. In general the pool is locked down from November to April, but when the gate to the pool is open it’s in general open “all the time”. Except from now.

We have all in this community got an key to this lock. I can’t reach mine in the mailbox, but I got the possibility to copy the key from one of my neighbour. And the copy key is working,- I can lock me in and out from the pool now in “legal” way 🗝🏊‍♀️.

But theres is a is a path at the back of the pool, with stone steps up and a small opening that allows full access to the pool area without having to unlock a lock using a key. I have use this path many times during the Spring time before the swimming pool is open,- and no one have ever said a thing about me using that “road” to go to the pool. But now we need to have our own key to the gate so we can open and lock it again when we are finished using the pool 🤔. But what about the open path to the pool? That’s still there and still open.

Anyone who wants to take a swim in the pool can do this without this “magic” key 🗝. So I actually quite don’t understand the point with the key and the lock.

The first photo from the left is the pool, and the photo is taken from my home. So it’s not fare to walk down to the pool, or run back home for a tiny toilet visit, in case that’s necessary. “Behind” the pool it is two paths, one goes directly up to the pool. The other one also go to the pool, but as well to the houses in our community.

The next 3 photos are the path up to the pool, and the fifth photo the opening to the pool. And the last one is just a tiny photo over the pool area. I actually could show you this better with a move, but I did think about that a bit to late. So next time if I have something I want to show and explain, I will make a move to you instead 😊.

Well,- our pool is open and available for use with some restrictions,- and one of the is to remember to lock the gate with a key so no one else can use the pool. The tiny little thing is that there’s a path on the opposite side of the pool area with free exit to the pool. So I’m actually not sure what the point with this lock and key is 🤔🗝😊. Why it’s so important to remember to lock down something that is open in the opposite side 😊.

Anyway,- it’s great to be able to “cool down” in the pool the next days, weeks and months 🏊‍♀️☀️. Even the pool area looks a tiny bit empty without the sun chairs and umbrellas 🏖.

So I’m very happy for this “magic” key to the pool, at least it gives me the feeling of using the pool “legal” 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊

The lock to our pool, so we can unlock it and use the pool 🏊‍♀️. So our pool is open now, with a lock. At the same time there’s an open exit on the opposite side of the pool with full possibility to use the pool when ever you want without having any “magical” key 🗝😊.
