Hmmm, today I thought “I don’t want to go to work today, I just want to stay at home” … well, I’m working from home so that wouldn’t be much of change 🤦🏻‍♂️

Soon I will be able to start with my morning walks again. The sun is now up at 7:30 (2h earlier than two months ago) and I really like to walk a couple of hours before work. And yes, the sun is up 2h more in the afternoon so 4 more hours of light compared to two months ago

Todays theme: Compassion.

I found this one day walking in a forest close to Umeå. Apparently someone had compassion to the dead bird and covered it with flowers.

Todays theme: make.

These machines can be a source of great joy and be really useful (I don’t own one, I’m not much into engines etc … despite officially having a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering - long story). But they also make a lot of noice …

I’m currently listening to Pink Floyd … something I have done in 25-30 years and it’s sooooo different from what I hear being played today (and no, I’m not very much into music)

Todays theme: Sporg. I have no idea what a sporg is. After some research (i.e. using DuckDuckGo) I decided that a sporg must be some kind creature. So I decided to spend my lunch walk trying to hunt down a sporg.

Did I see a sporg running between the trees?

I’m sure that I saw one among the tress, although my research says that it could be an almost invisible creature.

Frozen sporg pee???

2021 02 12 13 07 37 0003

Could it be a sporg crossing, or a warning to sporgs crossing the road?

I think I heard a sporg over there (although I have no idea of how they sound)

2021 02 12 13 11 16 0005

See, right there, isn’t that a sporg??

2021 02 12 13 12 27 0006

Could this be a sporg in white winter camouflage?

Another sporg crossing?

2021 02 12 13 20 30 0008

Could these be sporg nests?

A sporg castle?

OK, here we have a sporg running over the field … unfortunately it has a very good camouflage so you can’t see it.

Todays theme: machine. One of the neighbors is apparently improving their heating system. This have become very popular the last couple of years (we did it about 2 years ago)

Apparently “blogger” means that you get paid for the stuff you publish. So, is there a name for people who write/publish stuff online and don’t get paid?

Commenting on research stuff … I need a break, a cat break

How she can find this position comfortable is beyond me

Todays theme: Sports. I usually take something between 5-10000 martial arts photos each year. The last 14 months I’ve done one singe photo shoot … so here are two from the archive, taken 3 months ago.

There is a rumor that the kids think it’s difficult to use the swings 😋

Can I borrow your collective wisdom: what alternatives are there to Evernote? Requirements: being able to save different kinds of documents - mostly PDFs but there might be other types. macOS, iOS clients, being able to share a folder with others, sync. Easy to use

I love how english speaking people pronounce “urkund” 😋
