Fall Break {iPhone snapshots}


Our younger son got a new bike recently, so we've been biking quite a bit this week. I took this snapshot while I was biking with a very slow speed - in order to capture some motion to the picture. My tempo was though  slower compared to the younger generation - maybe also because I enjoyed watching the colors in the forest as much as I enjoyed biking :)

This lovely dog is just so sweet and playful - that is, when he is not keeping an eye on the ducks!  I'm so happy everytime I get to go for a walk with my friend and her dog Anton!

The lake is peaceful, and we have a certain bench with a view, where we like to enjoy our "coffee to go" - Thermos mugs are such a handy invention!

I've enjoyed my tea in the morning accompanied by a good book, while the boys and my husband have slept in ...

... and it's Friday already! This fall break has gone fast - at the same time it's been great to relax without any big plans.

There's been time for baking and experimenting in the kitchen : I tried making granola with almonds and cranberries, which turned out to be delicious!

Happy weekend to you,


  1. I love the bike shot, really cool! I'm trying to get back into my personal blog, so I thought I would stop by!! Happy Weekend!

  2. Great shots. Love the dog tail and the mug and the book oh well I guess I love them all. Biking as a family is wonderful. Granola with cranberries and almonds sounds delicious. Enjoy relaxing. B

  3. What a beautiful post! That looks just like my dog...except yours is sitting so nicely instead of dragging you into the pond chasing the ducks. Happy Friday! Aloha

  4. wow, that 1st shot - messes with your eyes. glad to hear you get a few moments to rest & relax while the every one else sleeps. i know that is probably really nice & quiet. ( :

  5. Nina, Your photos and words draw me into your daily life. I'd love to share a cup of tea with you - or a thermos of coffee! I've started taking and using more phone pics for the blog. It's so handy, and the quality of the phone camera has really improved. Love the motion shot!
