Lately



Well, hello there. Been a while. How y'all doin'?

I know I'm still playing catch up on my blog. Lately I've mostly been
trying to get used to my new medicine, and been busy at the store.
But starting today I have 4 days off and I plan on filling them with
lots of good food and drink, computer games and fall TV shows.






We are finally seeing some pumpkin babies grow.
But of course Sweden has had floods of rain the last few weeks,
so now we're just hoping that the sunny weather will return
so the pumpkins can grow big and harden in time.



 



We are still working on the house and facade.
150 years of temporary fixes and different kinds of paint have slowed
down the progress but we are getting some professional help.

Before winter we also need to change out the old crappy window
in my crafts room. It's gonna be nice not freezing my ass off
when trying to be creative during the long winter months.


Are you guys preparing for Wednesday and Haunted Humpday?
I plan on reviewing a couple of scary books and I'm looking forward
to seeing what everyone else is doing!

  3. I hope you get some warmer weather and some pumpkins! It's been raining here lately too, and today in the house (with no heat) it felt like winter. I'm not ready for that yet! :P

    1. Pumpkins can grow in many places - but maybe you mean you don't have a garden?

    1. Thank you, but I'm hoping for ripe and heavy pumpkins - those fill me with a sense of contentment :)

  8. Åh jag hoppas att hösten blir lång och varm så att dina också kan mogna. De stora gröna håller på att ändra färg till orange och de som är ljusgula håller på att bli ljusbeige.

    1. Aha, det var så de beigea såg ut innan de fick sin färg. DÅ kan jag berätta att de håller i evighet - jag slängde ut min sista från förra året härom veckan :) Den har stått i en fönsterkarm, lika vacker hela tiden (förutom i botten).

    1. Can you grow pumpkins in only a couple of months where you live?

      Radera
  10. Beautiful photos! I love your pumpkins! I planted mine before I left for the summer, but I don't think I'm going to get any. From what I've read, I don't think they were fertilized by the bees or the ants, and I missed the opportunity.

    A new window sounds great for winter! xoxo

    1. Thank you! But yours may still grow pumpkins, if the plants are big and healthy.

  11. I am excited to see how your pumpkins turn out.
    Your four days off sound so nice and relaxing I kind of wish I had a few extra days to do the same. Enjoy them!
    I am sure whatever you do in and outside your home, it will turn out wonderfully and beautiful!
    So, as much as I have been able to gather, this Haunted Hump Day is a collection of spooky stories and fun Halloween themed crafts and recipes? I went to the the site connected to the link in your sidebar but I don't have too much time to dig at the moment (have to get settled down for homework). Is that about right? Or is there more too it?

    1. Yes, that's about right :)
      Last year it ran 4 or 5 Wednesdays in a row, and one could do basically anything spooky or Halloween related, but our hostess made sure to include at least one scary story in every one of her posts. And as with other blog parties some participants had giveaways.
      I'm not sure how many Wednesdays Marfi intends this year but I know it will be more than one!

  12. Your home is 150 years old :O???? WOW! Must be sooo magical!

    SvaraRadera
    Svar
    1. Yup, many homes out here are old as grit. But it's not very magical, just a small cottage with an unmanageable garden :)

Lately I have been falling behind answering comments, for many reasons. But I read and cherish all of them! Your comments make my day, yay!
