First snow 2017

As is tradition, I’m covering the first snowfall! โ„

I actually saw the first flakes on Monday, but they don’t count. They were just twirling through the air and melting as soon as they touched the ground. The first real snowfall I witnessed came on Tuesday the 24th. It wasn’t much, but it was white, it covered most of the ground, and it didn’t melt away.

Spooky Box - The Mystic - contents

It’s been a while since I had a Spooky Box, but now it’s time again! ๐Ÿ˜€

Spooky Box Club is a subscription box for the alternative crowd. Most of the items are exclusive and handmade and/or manufactured by small local businesses, all with an emphasis on cute, witchy, and gothic interests and styles. Naturally, I love it and it’s the only subscription box I ever buy.

Lake near Arjeplog, Sweden

Markus and I have friends who are dedicated fishing enthusiasts, and a few weeks ago they invited us to accompany them on a weekend trip to… well, the middle of nowhere. I’m sure the place has a name, but it wasn’t written on any maps or signs so I have no idea.

I don’t have the patience for it. I cast my line 3 times and if nothing has happened by then I’m done and want something else to do.

And it was great! While the others were fishing I was walking around exploring the forest and taking photos.
So, here’s a photo dump of our weekend off the grid. ๐Ÿ™‚
