I had this post ready and lined up for publication when my mom died. I removed it from Blogger before it was published.
I decided it is time to go with my (blog) life. That doesn’t mean that I won’t mention my mom anymore. I just think it is time for some posts in a lighter mood. Thanks to Live Writer I was able to retrieve it, so here it is…..
I celebrated my …th birthday in December.
H. bought me two lovely gifts for me.
The Swedish book Ljus o Landligt by Anna Örnberg has been on my wishlist for a couple of months. I saw some pics of it on the internet and was able to flick through a copy last summer. I almost ordered it at a Swedish book site, but was able to buy a copy from Gerda of Idémakeriet in november. Gerda is a Dutch living in Sweden. She asked a relative to take it home and mail it to me. That reduced shipping costs considerably.
People, this book is gorgeous. It has the style I really love. Scandinavian with white, wood and a splash of color. Even H. likes it, so there is still hope….;-)
I am sorry for the bad photo’s. I didn’t want to damage the book by putting it on the scanner.
This little olive tree is H. other gift. We keep it in our bed room until spring. It’s cool and light there.
Yep and it even has….olives. I can tell you, they taste awful when they are raw. I tried one….
I don’t know what I would have done without H. in the past month. He was there for me every minute of the day. I am so grateful that he is in my life.
