A tiny basket with a touch of the Norwegian wintertime ❄😊

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

It’s not very much snow and snowflakes during the wintertime South of Spain ❄. But it has been snowing. So fare not this winter, but last winter and actually the winter before that too it did snow for a tiny bit here in the area in South of Spain ❄.

Still the snow wasn’t quite the same as in Norway. Maybe because it felt like to have the beach covered with snow didn’t felt quite correct?

I admit I like the summertime best, but at the same time I need to say there’s something peaceful with the snow, the snowflakes when they are falling slowly from the sky.

And everything seems a bit lighter for a while when the nature is covered with white snow everywhere ❄. And it’s beautiful too.

It’s wintertime in Spain too at the moment, but without this white, soft and so cold and fresh snow. And even I don’t miss the cold, the snow, the Norwegian wintertime it’s still something and sometimes I do miss this peace the snow now and then brought ❄.

So I created me a basket with a touch of the magic wintertime in Norway ❄.

A oil painted basket with some snow crystals and snowflakes ❄.

In general the wintertime in the West coast of Norway wasn’t very magical. Mostly is was rain and wind, and snow that was just lying on the ground for just a tiny bit before it became to ice and in general more coloured up with the grey colour then the white.

But when the snow first stayed for a while and covered the nature in soft white colour, and all the sounds in it’s own way a kind of “disappeared”- then it felt like magic. And I need to admit I now and then do miss that kind of magic during the wintertime here in South of Spain.

I’m not going to bother you today either with a lots of different images and photos and movies from my painted glassbottles- but if you want to take a better look at each and one of them you will find the glassbottles in my Instagram account ArtByLailaS. And of course you are very welcome to take a look 😊.

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 😊

A basket with a touch of the magical wintertime in Norway ❄

The wintertime in the West coast of Norway could be magical when the snowflakes was falling softly from the sky and covered the nature with something that felt like cold, soft cotton. I miss that kind of winter magic now and then,- so I tried to create my own winter magic ❄🎨.

Maybe it’s time to say Thank you to December and Welcome to January too? 😊❄☃️

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

December is over and we have already both started on a new month as well as a new year 🍾. And that feels very good 😊. So fare January has been peaceful, just the way I hope the rest of the month will be, actually the rest of the year, to be honest 😊.

December- the Christmas- month 🎄. It didn’t quite felt very much like Christmas time this year (either), but it still became Christmas with a tasteful traditional Norwegian Christmas- dinner too 😊. I manage to send some Christmas gifts to my family in Norway this year as well 🎁. And that feels so great.

The Christmas gifts are just something I have made and created to my family, something personal, but it cost a bit to sent it all up to Norway,- and to manage that was one of my goals in December- and I manage that one 😊.

I’m going to show you what I have created to my family in Norway in my next posts 😊.

December was a fine month with some “touch” of stress, but not the “normal” Christmas-stress. I didn’t manage to stress my self up with that one too 😅. Not very much homemade Norwegian Christmas- cakes and cookies this year, not very much Christmas decorations in the home either 🎄. It was what it was,- and I’m fine with that 😊. It became a nice Christmas celebration anyway 😊.

I did manage more and less the different private goals I had for December and I’m happy and grateful for that 😊. Some very few is just a couple of weeks delayed 😊.

So I actually just want to say Thank you December 2021- all in all- it wasn’t to bad at all 😊.

And Welcome to January 2022 🧡. My birthday month actually- but I’m not going to do very much out of my birthday this year either 🎁. And the winter month too. A winter filled with rain or sun, or even maybe snow? It was snowing last year here South in Spain, but I’m not sure if it was in January or February?

At the moment the days are a bit cold, but still sunny, and without any snow ….. and wind 🌞❄.

Some winterbottels I have painted ❄ , they are “sourrende” by sand and not snow 😊

I’m not sure what I can expect from January. I haven’t made to many plans. I think I’m going to focus at my (3 😳) jobs and my painting 🎨. Be a mammi for my daughter, and of course my two sons too 💙, but they are not living in my home so I’m “mammi-ing” for them in a bit different way 😊. And maybe I’m going to socialize a bit with friends too? It haven’t been very much time, or energy, for to much social life the 3 last months during last year 😔. Hopefully there will be a bit more time for that during the next weeks and months 😊.

I can tell you why I have 3 jobs at the moment. My plan was to save up money to different things I both need and want. But as most of you know I suddenly got an extra month to feed in October, so my extra money has been to help my daughter as much as I could. Now, maybe, I can have the possibility to put away some extra cents, even euro to and for myself? 😊

But to be able to get and have extra money I also need to work a bit extra. My costumer service agent job on the phone- (that’s my real job)-, do cover all my living expenses like houeserent, household, food and so on. So then to try to manage to save up some extra money I have 2 different freelance jobs as well 😊.

I need to go to the dentist, so there’s one “saving goal”, and it would be nice to be able travel to Norway too. I really miss my middle son and it could be nice to visit him. I also want to get our last things in Norway moved to Spain, and a couple of more things too, I want to do. But then I need to work a bit extra so I can be able to do some, or maybe even all of it 🥰.

Like I mention in my last post,- at the moment I just take things a bit day by day, and week by week. I didn’t manage to do to much of all the different plans I had for 2021, so I start a bit careful with not to many and to much plans this year, and then see how things goes and take it from there 😊. But of course I have some different plans and goals, I just don’t take the chance to do to much out of it yet 😊. Or tell or talk about it to much either, because I know thing can change fast and different challenges can “show up”, and then I need to change and reorganize my plans and focus a bit too.

At the moment things seems to be peaceful in January, but I don’t know what can “show up ” or happen 😊. But still January 2022 is very welcome with the different suprices of different kinds, but hopefully not to much and many at the moment 🤞😊. And I really like to write 2022- I’m not sure why- but it feels just so great to write it ✒.

I wish you all a wonderful January- and I will try my very best to drop by with more textes this year then I did last year 🤞✒😊.

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 😊

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 😅.
