On this misty winter morning, I stumbled upon a lonely buoy on the frozen lake Viken. I think it's longing for spring, yearning to be free once again. Or maybe it's just me.

This year I made an advent calendar for Sanna. Presents are "hidden" around the flat, and she gets to choose one to open every morning. Loot so far: fancy coffee and a gift card for a three-course dinner (cooked by me).
Yes, some of the gifts might benefit yours truly as well. 😋

If you're the family tech support, hooking up loved ones with password managers is the best Christmas gift you can give. Online safety is essential, and friends don't let friends go without a password manager.

In one scene, the ham gets a whipped cream cake in its face?! The kid's uncle will likely adjust the script before the premiere. 😅9:21 pm on Nov 13, 2022

One of the great things about the internet is that you will always find your community, no matter how niche your interests are. I'm into programming the 33-year-old Game Boy. Seems pretty… obscure, right? Well, when I write this, 821 souls are online on the gbdev Discord. 😮

During one of my adventures in Death's Door, I stumbled upon this fella named Pothead. He is cursed by a witch, so his head is nowadays a pot with firewood underneath. Hence his name, I guess. Day 10.
8:32 am on May 10, 2022
Yes, yes, I'll admit. Unfortunately, today's challenge ended up being a rush job. ☺️ Day 9: bloom.

10:09 pm on May 4, 2022
A couple of years ago, I teamed up with a robot for experimental doodling. The paper lantern was drawn by me in Sketch, inspired by a 1912 children's book by May Audubon Post.
My pen plotter did the rest (guided by the human). 🦾
This marks day three of the challenge. 📸
9:20 pm on May 3, 2022

My list of books-I-want-to-read-before-I-die is lengthy. And that can make me feel… intimidated? Overwhelmed? So I decided to stop looking at it for a while and instead go back to the classic book pile. Three books. The next one is on top. Less overwhelming. 📚9:20 pm on Jan 28, 2022

Sanna made this delicious celeriac soup for us today. Mmm! Topped with browned butter, dill, and hazelnuts. So tasty. 😋

It's book launch day! My favorite author (and soulmate) just released her first short story collection. Does cozy Swedish horror pique your curiosity? Then go check out Sanna Lund's Arkiv för upphittade anteckningar. For yourself or a friend. 📚

Bent over backward to get this view of Saint Katarina's church ruin in Visby. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get this shot straight. My back must be crooked. 😅

Not for me, but maybe something for the 🖋️ community to checkout? 😊

A new way to build websites with pen & paper.
Are you yearning for a feel-good quick read about a bunch of quirky people repairing printers and other Apple hardware? Of course, you are! It would be best if you read LaserWriter Ⅱ by Tamara Shopsin. 📚

A couple of weeks ago, I finished Bubble. A nicely illustrated, action-packed, sci-fi adventure; seasoned with a pinch of social satire. The elevator pitch? Hmm. 🤔 Monster-hunting in a gig economy graphic novel! 📚

Here in Sweden, the word hygge is a clear-cut area in a forest. So that can cause confusion in conversations with our neighbors in Denmark and Norway. 😊

I love discovering the less talked about features in new iOS releases, like that you can get cozy rain and dark noise playing in your ears. 🤩 Set it up by going to ⚙️ Settings️ → Accessibility → Audio/Visual → Background Sounds.
What gems have you found in iOS 15?4:18 pm on Sep 21, 2021
Our favorite late-afternoon-wine spot on the in-laws' porch. The weather was exceptional this weekend. The garden view was… interesting. 😅

Just before sundown yesterday, we packed the camera and gear in a knapsack and biked to the edge of the forest. Then, by foot, we followed a trail to this spot. Sanna needed material for a new photography course. I tagged along for company, coffee, and a beautiful sunset. 😊

Today I read Everything's Fine by Matthew Pridham. 📚 You know that meme of a dog getting engulfed in flames while proclaiming that everything is fine? Well, Pridham's short story takes on the same theme, in a way. Loved it!

Another one from our trip to Haväng; a mini-wave coming for iPhone 12 mini. 😅 No smartphones were harmed in the making of this video. 🌊10:33 pm on Sep 5, 2021
This sticker was waiting for me in the postbox. Look at that beauty! 🤩 Thanks, @jean.

Close to where I tried photographing waves the other day lies this shed called Vedalaboden. It's an old ålabod; a place to take shelter and store gear when fishing for eel.
10:06 am on Sep 4, 2021
Yesterday. A trip to Haväng for a swim in the Baltic Sea. 🗺 We also caught waves on our image sensors. As one can imagine, Sanna had no troubles. Me, on the other hand. Well, let's just say my sensor ended up more below water than above.

Today, our MINI Cooper SE passed a funny milestone: 23,456 kilometers on the road. 🎉 Powered by wind, water, and solar. 🔋 Tomorrow, it will take us to the hills of Brösarp. 🗺 Keep it up, Skogsbullebilen!

Four months ago, we visited Åkulla beech forests and stumbled upon this spectacular view during our walk. The hiker in the photo is Sanna, and the hill she just conquered is called Hiaklitten.

The other day, @zorn mentioned ROM hacking which threw me back to the summer of 2018. One hot evening, I asked myself: what if Tetris only had the straight tetromino? So, I fired up my hex editor and hacked together this thing. 😅 🎮

Feel these words: bulletin board systems, dial-up noises, Commodore, and Nintendo. Now, this sentence: "a comic about '90s kids making bad decisions over the early internet".
Yep, you should add Incredible Doom on your to-read pile. 📚

Let's see if we can transform these ingredients into a tasty lunch. The frozen chunks may look like sorbet, but it's not. Homemade chicken stock and… cava. 🍾

This grandfather clock means the world to me. If you open the pendulum door and peek inside, you will find a piece of paper with typewritten words. Signed by my grandpa. The clock was a gift to him from his wife in 1961.
Every tick-tock reminds me of them.

Kantarellpizza: chanterelle, gruyère, and truffle mayo pizza. Mmm. 😋 What kind of pizza are you eating tonight? 🍕

Would you like links to the previous and next posts on your Micro.blog? I put up a short tutorial on the Help center yesterday. Check it out!

My view outside our kitchen window right before bedtime yesterday. Installing pipes for district heating looks like hard work! The folks down there worked through the night and were still at it when I drank my first cup of coffee in the morning.

Sanna read a couple of pages from The Labyrinth to me during breakfast this morning. Is it possible to start the day off in a cozier way? I don't think so. 😊 Reading aloud to each other is underrated.
