August 9, 2006 – 2011

August 9, 2011

August 9, 2006 I took a walk in my neighbourhood Majorna in Gothenburg.

August 9, 2007 I had wine with my neighbours.

August 9, 2008 I tried to dye my hair back to my natural colour after years of almost black.

August 9, 2009 I had breakfast at my parents-in-law.

August 9, 2010 I visited Adolf’s house probably for the last time.

August 9, 2011 is today and I’m working. What are you doing?

    Today I went for a long walk, though I got caught in heavy rain on the way home. So now I am drying my clothes and editing videos.

    Happy working!

    I am sitting in my room, which is finally bright after a lot of grey days, writing and thinking about London and wanting to help make things better in a substantial way. Feeling a little overwhelmed by witnessing it.

    Hi, Sandra!
    Today's morning I was working at home and now I´m visiting my favorites blogs in the net 😉
    I would like to go for a walk but it's still so hot that I gave up and I avoid to go to the beach during this month, because there are too much people in there.

    I've had a friend over for lunch and I've just finished cutting and preparing fabrics so I can start sewing new purses. Right now I'm off to embroider some more, while watching movies. I love these kinds of days.

    It's lovely how you can look back to the same day like that. It must bring back so many wonderful memories!

    This morning I went to work, I took the afternoon off to wander around town. I Bought a movie (O'Horten) which I'm going to watch later tonight and did some grocery shopping. At home I took a nap, made dinner and looked for books by Norwegian authors to read in prep of my trip to Bergen in the autumn 🙂

    Have a lovely evening!

    It has been quite a normal day for me. Went to work, eat the leftover cous-cous from last night for lunch. Walked home in the sunshine. I am watching the news and feeling so sad for London.

    Right now I'm at work having my lunch and reading your lovely blog! ;D

    It is raining here today, and unfortunately, my feet got wet from the walk to pick up my lunch. :S

    Right now I'm looking at places to live in Toronto together with my boyfriend. We are going there tomorrow and staying till January – so exited! I also wrote an email to a very nice design agency about internship, and they wrote me back almost instantly and we are going to have a talk next week.

    jag gillar dina sådana här inlägg så mycket. jag blir lite sugen på att göra ett sådant själv, men det känns som "din grej" nu. 🙂
    idag har jag vaknat hos min pojkvän, det var fint en sommar som denna när vi jobbar på olika ställen.

    Hooray for August 9! Today I am celebrating 3 super fun years of marriage, and enjoying your photo memories of this favorite day of mine.

    Hi! Today I have celebrated my birthday with friends and family. And when I was driving my car earlier in the day they played Happy birthday with Stevie Wonder on the radio – it was just a coincidence I listened to just that radio channel just that moment – and it really made me smile :).

    On 9th August 2011, I did some boring but important work, and took some photos for my new crochet.

    BTW,this is a really good idea. The most amazing part is that you can keep on taking photos on this date during these 6 years.
