    My plum tree has a lot of flowers this year, so hopefully there will be a lot of plums.

    The bees are doing their best to make plums:

    One place in my garden that I have left uncared for for too long:

    The other day, I took care of it:

    It took me some hours and I filled a couple of garbage bags:

    As usual, my husband tells me that I filled the garbage bags too much, that they are too heavy. I know what that means: I have to move them to the trailer by myself. 8)

    Easter is one month away and the shops have started to sell a lot of Easter decorations:

    I like chocolate, so I had to buy one chocolate bunny or two...

    They are gone now... :S

    Today, this is where I spend a lot of my time at work - on the roads:

    The birds who don’t like the winter so they migrate to warmer countries, are starting to move back to Sweden. They must have been disappointed when arriving to snowfall.

    A lot of swans and some other birds.

    I am working with people with dementia. Two days ago, I was at a man's home and he was very anxious and restless. I couldn't leave him alone in that state of mind, so I decided to take a walk with him in his forest (yeah, he owns about 40 hectares land, mostly forest). After a walk for about 35 minutes, in 20 cm snow, he calmed down and was happy again. I made him dinner, and then I could leave him without feeling worried.

    It was snowing all night and morning, approx. 25 cm snow, and I had to drive on roads that was not cleared. At work, one of my co-workers got stuck in the snow, so we had to shovel the snow away from the road, at 7:30 in the morning. We do anything to get to the people in need of our help:


    This is the parking lot where I had to park my car, wasn't easy to drive away from there:


    I helped an old, sick man to get rid of some of the snow:


    This is way too much snow for me! I know there are places with much more snow and I feel really sorry for them.

    The only good thing with all this white snow, is that it is easier to spot the deers, foxes, wildboars and other animals, so I might have a chance not to hit them.

    Oohh, nooo!
    Winter is coming!
    Now I have to get up earlier to get the car ready to drive to work!
    (jajaja, I know there are people who have it worse, but hey! I am from Sweden! We are always complaining about the weather!)

    I have to admit that on a sunny day, the autumn is a tiny little bit beautiful...

    My husband sometimes complains about all the cat hair he has on his clothes. Well, if he doesn’t want cat hair on his clothes, maybe he shouldn’t leave them on the couch?

    One hour later:

    I say that no outfit is complete without cat hair. :D

    "jealous"? Wonder why he chose that..

    Oh, you are right! "Sotis" could mean jealous.
    In this case, though, it is because the cat is black. "Sot" is the swedish word for that black stuff that comes from e.g. fires, making everything black. We sometimes put "-is" in nicknames. It's like Morris: morr = growl, Sötis: söt = cute

    I sure hope that this is the explanation for the cat name! :/
