Our trip to our summerhouse started out in a little funny way. You know the feeling of knowing you have forgotten something you just can’t figure out what. I often have that feeling. Also when we sat in the car ready for driving toward the summerhouse. I just knew it. I just didn’t know what.
And then suddently it hid me: The hook for my ice cream maker.
Oh no… what a tragedy it would be. Me in the summerhouse withit being able to make ice cream. (Ok, feel the irony). I had all of the things for the little machine – just not the hook. So I asked my family if we could please go home and get it. Well, we hadn’t even hid the high way yet but still I felt like an idiot. Going home again just to get a little piece of plastic. Haha…
Luckily my family (kind as they are) drove back to let me get it. Well, I didn’t doubt it. That’s what family do – let you go back and get something totally unimportant to them because they know it means something to you. Oh, how I love my family.
Yesterday I had fun playing house-photograph. Like such ones who take pictures for the magazines. I have never taken such photos before, but it was a lot of fun. I know they aren’t very good. But it is a start.
I love my summerhouse. I like how it isn’t perfect. Not as all of those you see in the magazines where everything is more than perfect. But still I really like the style in the house. It is light and there are light wooden floors. Actually nothing special, but I love it because it’s my summerhouse.
My good old summerhouse.
But now for the ice cream. Thanks to the little ice cream hook ;)
