Bird- Watchers

This is one of my oldest friends, Anna Beckman Hautau . We have known each other since we were seven years old. Anna and hear partner Lennart, were visiting us this weekend and we had such a fun time together, as always. Lots of laughter, talking and good food :-D :-D :-D
This is what they are looking at: Rödstjärt

Hej Eva!
Usually I am notified by blogger when you post, but I hadn't been, so I went to your blog to check for myself...and you had posted twice since I was last notified. I loved the pictures of Hovs Haller....reminds me so much of the very first time that we visited you and you took us there. Oh what fond memories I hold!!!
I think we call the bird you are looking at a "redstart"...could that be? We see them in the Spring up in the Smoky Mountains.
Hope you all are well.
We are looking forward to a visit from Dave and Kristin tomorrow, as it will be Father's Day here in the States.
Love and Hugs to All,

Hi Judy!
I'm glad that you had fond memories when you saw the pictures, because I thought of you when I put them on my blog ;-)

Yes, our "Rödstjärt" is the same as your "Redstart". This redstart lives at the backside of our house in a big beech tree (the tree that I placed on my blog in the end of May - "Look what 12 days can do!")

Please say hello and give a big hug to Krtistin from me when she arrives today!
We celebrate Father's Day in November and our Mother's day in May ;-)
I hope you will have a wonderful day with your family, and give also Craig a big hug on his day today!
At last I have got your birthday gifts ready and I will send it off to you as soon as possible.
Me and my sibblings have had a hectic time this spring and the last two weeks. My mother moved to a "service apartment" in Västra Karup (the little village that your grandfather came from)last Sunday. It's a very, very nice apartment! Unfortunately isn't the house sold yet, but I'm not worried. The "right" buyer will turn up in due time :-)
Love and Hugs to you All too,

I'm teary-eyed just thinking about Vastra Karup! Isn't that funny!!! I remember it so well!
I hope your mother will be happy there. Her apartment sounds wonderful. Please give her my love and best wishes...and also a huge hug and kiss on the cheek. She is such a wonderful LADY!!!

We enjoyed a lovely Father's Day, and it was so nice to see Dave and Kristin. They met us for church, took us out for lunch and then I had to head back to the regatta. Boooooo! The kids went to visit my Mom and had a very nice time....and so did she!!

I can only imagine how busy you have been helping your mother move. That is exhausting work, and very stressful and emotional. Please don't think a thing about a gift to me. Your kindness over the years and friendship are gift enough!!!! I seriously mean that! I'm sure that your parent's home will sell very quickly...oh, I hope it's not some, what did you call them? Seagulls????, from Stockholm!!! Please correct me on that...and do give me the Swedish name...it is so wonderful!!
OK, it's late and I must go to bed!!!

xo to all,
