The day before
yesterday, it started to rain.
But, we have not had any rain in June, so the garden really
needed some rain, now. I only hope that it will not rain for

It's cloudy today,
but mild and nice temperatures.
Charles got lots
of good help with putting up the new black roof. A friend of him
helped him one evening, and two other evenings, his brother and
his cousine were helping him. They are almost finished now. The
house was much nicer with the new black roof! I have
posted a photo of the guys working,

Yesterday was the
kids last day at school before their summer holiday. Today my
sisters son came to stay with us for a week. He and Joakim are
going to stay together at daytime, while Charles and I are at
work. Both Joakim and Steffen has been looking forward to this
week for a long time. They are almost at the same age, and love
to stay together.
I have one week
vacation in week 27, and at Friday June 29th Steffen, Joakim and
I are going to drive to wisit my parents, and my sister (Steffen's

Charles has continued working with the roof. Each and every day.
Both yesterday evening (after work) and this whole day, we have
been working with our house and garden.
I have been putting 4 of the new hedge bushes into the soil, and
moved 2 other bushes to a better place, and continued to expand
a flowerbed. (See photos
Charles has been working this entire day, removing the roof of
half the house. He hopes to finish with the other half tomorrow.
We are going to change the roof, and get a black roof. I am
looking forward to that. I belive that the house will look much
nicer with a black roof, instead of the old red roof.
Today Charles and
I bought 10 hedge bushes and a small tree with red leaves. I
have been dreaming of buying this small tree for a long time. I
am so happy that we have bought it now.

Most of this
day I have been doing housework. During June, we have hade
wonderful weather, and with nice weather, we spend most of
the time outdoors, so it was at time to do some housework
now. I have been washing lots of clothes, and put up to get
dry, in the sunshine.
I love this
time of year! It's wonderful when I am riding my bicycle to
work in the morning. It's a sweet smell of Spring from all
the Spring flowers and and trees which are blooming now.
I love to
bring a cup of coffee (or two) in our garden, and just sit
and relax, enjoying it all!
started to ride my bicycle instead of the car, when I am
going to work. (I have to admit that I am driving my car, if
the weather is bad, but now it a lovely summer weather, and
I am biking.)
We have been
working a lot with a small part of our garden. If you wish to
take a look, I have a new photo, down at this page
Sunday June 3rd
Now we have
had a wonderful
weather for over a week! Sun, warm weather, and no wind!
We have been
working in our garden for the whole weekend! I will post
photos as soon as I find some time to do it. (First I have
to take som photos.) But I am not finished with my new
garden project yet. I will post photos as soon as I am
finished with it. Our new garden is quite large, and my new
project is just a small corner in the garden, but I am very
pleased about what we have done this weekend.
