Started yesterday with news, breakfast and cleaning my mailbox. What a great feeling when it’s down to zero, empty. And you turn around and it starts ticking again.
I drove to work in sunshine. Blue skies, calm waters and one heck of a beautiful mountain in the horizon. Seattle at its best. The kids started to roll in and we had a great day at school. Tired kids that slowly woke up and got their Swedish brains and words going. What a great group of kids. What is not to love with 6 year olds. And when you get 15 of them together something happens. And this is why I choose this job 100 years ago. Curiosity, never ending energy and open heartiness. At the same time they make your brain spin around and take leaps, you sometimes need to hold your breath for a second and think.
The sun was still out when I drove home, the mountain was still bright white and the lake crisp blue. After some food, coffee and kicking my feet up I was promised company for my run. I love spontaneous running company. Caroline got dressed and laced up. We shared the forest with horses and goats and had a really good time for about 6 slow miles. Lots of talking, mind twisting and body work.
After a quick shower, a trip to the grocery store and dinner prepping for the kids we were on our way to the city and a late concert with Doug Seegers. The guy who got famous on Swedish TV and has a magical voice. He is playing for full houses in Europe but here he is close to his small audience. We sat beside the stage, got to chat with him before and after the concert. What an awesome night. Add on good friends, a couple of beers and great music. What a perfect night, goes straight into your deepest.
