LookUp Kaufman County

It takes a lot for me to call up my mother at 8pm to tell her something awesome that just happened. First of all, the reason for that is that mom is almost deaf and have a hard time to understand a phone conversation sometimes (not always) and I very easily get frustrated. But tonight […]

Yesterday Was…

…a good day! I had a plan and i stuck to it and it turned out really well. I had a business meeting at noon to almost finish up a project. I then had decided to hit the streets and try to promote InTerrell as much as I could. My main goal wasn’t to sell […]

Ready, Set, GO!

Well, yesterday when I was planning this week I looked in the calendar and it said “Recognized Holiday” today. What? Oh… okay… well then. Today just became a planning day and it has actually been a pretty productive one. I finalized the planning of a 2017 project, Volunteer Of The Month. It is a project […]

Merry Christmas!

It is Christmas Eve. This is the day when we celebrate Christmas in Scandinavia. Mom and I decided to “cancel” Christmas this year. Well not entirely of course, you can’t really do that but it will be the first year when we are not following our traditions so to say. So this is how we […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

Today is my birthday. But not many people know about it. I have even unpublished my birthday from Facebook because I don’t really want people to celebrate it too much. My birthday is too close to Christmas and this year I am not in a Christmas mode at all. This last week has been a […]

The Kittens

This started already last week, I just haven’t had the time to write about it… Last Tuesday when I was moving the horses I heard a sound of a little cat in distress. It took me a while before I found it, I actually had to cut up the bottom insulation of my house to […]

Social Media…

So… yesterday I posted this on my Facebook page… Thought I did all precaution possible to prepare for the cold weather… and still the water busted under mom’s house. Called the water supply company but they couldn’t (didn’t want to) help… had to call the sheriff and ask for someone stronger! They sent their female […]

Swedish Consulate

Sometimes it is kind of complicated to live abroad. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else but it also comes with some extra work. One thing is to deal with Swedish banks and governments. My grandmother passed away a year ago and if you think we had finished everything with that by now, over a […]

Swedish Tradition: Lucia Day

December 13th… Lucia… this is a tradition I have grown up with and one of the traditions that I truly miss. It is a celebration of Saint Lucy (Sankta Lucia in Swedish), the saint of light. As you know Sweden is very dark at this time of the year and Lucia walks from house to […]

It is cold in Texas…

When a Swede say Texas we think warm, sun, desert, cowboys, oil, Dallas (the TV show). We don’t think about layer on layer of clothes, cold temperatures, snow. Okay we don’t have snow (yet) but the last couple of days has been really really freaking cold. Last night was the coldest night in 2 years. […]

I’m Sorry…

Sometimes social media shakes your life in ways that you don’t really expect. Yesterday I posted a post on my private Facebook page asking if anyone had any thyroid medication laying around. I don’t really have the money ($330) to go to the doctor to get the annual tests done that should have been done last year and can’t […]
