Home! After months away, we finally made it home. Only for a little while, but it feels great.

First thing I noticed: noise! Sweet city sounds! Cars driving by, people talking down on the street, even tourists! So many different languages…

Oh, how I missed dealing with bureaucracy and the sweet sweet civil servants of our fair country….

Out fishing…

Long day again: today is vaccination day for tinyMovieStar, a quick visit to our place in the city, and lunch with my parents. Then back to the countryside.

I miss walking.

Itโ€™s my Day 011 out of a hundred.

Uneventful rest of day. Walking around carrying the little one, she falls asleep, she wakes up, she poops, eats, sleeps. Bath time, eat, poop, sleep.

Night comes. Eyes open wide, sleep is not interesting anymore. I know this. I’ve been this! But much much later in life!

Having a quiet afternoon with uncle Joรฃo. He plays beautifully. Gets the tinyMovieStar Seal of Approval ™

Listening to Dolly Parton singing I Will Always Love You.

She wins. Everything.

Done with The Meeting. Quite nice, actually. Still not sure about the future, but some more things to ponder. Also doing a workshop this weekend, so I’m getting out of the house. Not sure how I feel about that either. Want to go, but it’s a ton of hours away from the girls.

Wishing we could end this day on this exact spot.

Also quite stoked that (finally!) we’re getting our new Citizen Cards on Monday. All of us. Mine expired over a year ago, tinyMovieStar is getting her photo taken (she’ll be surprised that her father is not doing this one!) and both my wife and I are getting a new name!

Ready for a new day.
Yesterday was cool, sold a photo to a nice magazine, today I’ll have a meeting (first one in months!) trying to figure out what I’m doing next with my life. What could go wrong ?

First time alone with tinyMovieStar, movieStar went out to meet a friend for an hour or so. It was the scariest moment of my life!

Weโ€™re not grumpy ALL the time! From time to time we even crack a smile! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป

One thing I miss, a lot, is driving for hours in unknown roads…

๐Ÿš— ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝ

Conundrum: how will I ever get back to work and miss having tinyMovieStar around 24/7 ? I don’t want to be one of those sorry-I-missed-that fathers… Took me long enough to become one, I want to enjoy it full time now.

Seeing that we’re done with The Great, maybe today is Eurovision day. Seen it recommended a few times here already… ๐Ÿ“บ

A new day rises in the westernmost country in Europe, this time a cooler one. Temperatures should stay lower throughout the day. tinyMovieStar is calm, all is bliss. Huzzah!

Never too tired for a dance with tinyMovieStar.

Ok, so iOS 14 beta 2 feels super snappy, but the battery goes FAST on my X! Super fast! I can see the damn icon thinning before my eyes!

Second brother-in-law showed up for a dip in the pool, we had a wonderful dinner outside, tinyMovieStar always looking around, she’s brilliantly curious about everything. It’s amazing how the tiny ones change, daily.

Just a reminder that Flickr is still working. Uploaded a few photos, you’ve probably seen them before. Anyway, my Flickr account is up, maybe you’ll find something new.

Baby crying like crazy on the house next door. For a second my heart was racing.

Booted Manjaro again on the laptop, simply because I can’t stand the heat and the fan noise from the stupid Photos.app going full blast 24/7, without a way to pause/stop it. This is so un-Apple, and been going on for so long, they should fix it! Fix it now!

Sorry, but it IS a pain!

Went to the Swedish Embassy. Canโ€™t say itโ€™s my favorite trip, @ajennische ๐Ÿ˜‚
