It was November…

This morning my friend’s son, Mio, sneaked into the guest room where I was sleeping…”Len, wake up!” I smiled a little and stole a kiss from his cheek, thinking that although children are a far future in my life, I’m excited about that chapter.

I had come out the day before to pick Mio up from kindergarten. Being home now means I get to be a part of his life and the second baby that Frida and Andreas are having in January. Speaking of babies, Anja was home for the weekend with her baby Aston, so I got to cuddle with him a little.

November is continuing to surprise me with its rather

peculiar light and interesting changes.

Not only has the landscape changed from golden brownish earthy colours

to a sparkling frost and snowy white siluette.

But other things are shaping up too.

Me and my brother finally helped mom to pick out a new sofa today. It only took two and a half hours and a whole lot of test sitting and disagreeing but hopefully before Christmas we’ll all be sitting comfortably in a new stylish coffee couch.

I’m doing an excellent job at the gym. Because I didn’t think I’d stay I’ve been buying 30 days gym-cards. And because I’ve wanted to get my money’s worth I’ve been going for workouts 5-6 times a week.

And as for the real job situation, the conversation with my coach took a very interesting turn the other day…:)

It was November—the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines.

And dare I say, a beautiful month, and a potential beginning.
