after second Friday…

Friday, March 31st, 2017



On Friday 24th of March

I had two dental implants surgery, both sides.

I feel almost ‘normal’ but eating is still slowly…egg is easy to eat! 🙂


Otherwise life is supergreat! (even if we got a snow blanket last night. sigh)

I L-O-V-E this season! More and more light,

snowdrops are blooming in our backyard.

Shadow Shot Sunday2



Sundays In My City




For the past 33 years,
I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself:
‘If today were the last day of my life,
would I want to do what I am about to do today?’
And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row,
I know I need to change something.

Have a relaxing and sunny weekend!

I started to Nordic walk again and got ‘repetitive strain injury’

But I walk, every day.

Trying to lose 3.7 kgs (8.1 lbs) till 19th of June.

I calculate calories and try to move at least 2500 calories per week.


my wrist splint by BLOGitse


argh! Daily life is so difficult!


I try to rest my wrist so it would heal quicker….


Typing is hard but I try to use my fingers, the wrist is what I need to keep still.
