My favourite days are the everydays. I know it’s not a word but you know them, those days that you basically do ordinary everyday stuff. When my daughter was little we used to celebrate Wednesdays, doing something fun with friends or dining out or crafting or other fun things. Our lives were so busy, so we held on to our Wednesdays for years and years.

Of course life has changed a lot since then and I’m still quite happy with my usual everydays. Now that husband doesn’t work 7 days a week anymore, my weekends have changed too. Grandma weekends have become grandparent weekends and we have been better at getting out and about. Last weekend we took a trip on one of the beaches one day

and watched the Tall Ships' Race participants leave Stavanger the other. (Pictures taken from the breakwater at Mekjarvik)
Aaah, I can smell the sea and hear the angry bird chasing me off as I got too close to her nest.

This last week has been wonderful spending a whole week of everydays with grandson. As much as I’ll miss him when he goes home today, I know his mother wants him back.-)


  1. What a lucky grandson and grandparents. I love your everydays post, and especially seeing photos of you and your family!

  2. Looks like such a serene time, quiets and full of the sounds of the sea. xox Corrine

  3. What a lovely post reflecting your lifestyle. You are inspiring me to enjoy everyday :)

  4. What a great post....spending time with a little one..looks wonderful!

  5. What a beautiful place to live! I also love those "everydays". Sometimes I feel like there aren't very many of them but that just makes me treasure them more when they come. Love the paintings you, your daughter and grandson made.

  6. This post was so meaningful to me today. I know the beauty of the sea and the love of a Grandson. I loved each and every beautiful photo and that photo of you is stunning Nina! I get to go with my son and his family and my husband to the ocean the end of the month and this made me very excited...
