Happy Easter

I start this entry by wishing you a Happy Easter since it is Maundy Thursday when you read this. 🙂

I am looking forward to a long weekend. Four wonderful days off. I will be taking a photo walk, and possibly planning to document my Saturday for the blog some way. Not that anything special is going on but for fun. I will visit my grandmother on Easter Eve so will spend the day with her. So maybe you will get to meet my grandmother. How about that?

I haven’t decided what exactly we will do yet. If we just spend the day together at her place or if we go out for a car ride somewhere. All I know is that we will have a good day, granny and I. ❤ She is the best mormor (maternal grandmother) in the world even when memory is failing her and things get confusing at the age of 93.

I have always been really close to my grandparents on both sides. I guess that is why I have always loved being around ”old” people. I feel safe around them. They are like potential extra grandparents all of them. 🙂

I feel lucky that I got to have all my grandparents in my life until I was 14 when my farfar (paternal granfather) died. Farmor died 1994 if I remember correctly. Morfar I think died 2002. Now I have only mormor left so she is a very special person in my life. We need to spend all the time we can together because at 93 she won’t be around forever. <3.

Grandparents are special, aren’t they?

    You are lucky that you still have your Mormor, and such a close relationship too. My grandparents are all long since departed now. My Farmor died when I was only 2 years old and yet I have the strongest memories of her- I sometimes wonder what it would have been like to know her as I grew up…
    Wishing you and yours a very happy Easter ❤

    My farfar died four years before I was born. My farmor died when I was 10 or so, my morfar a couple years later and eventually my mormor too – I can’t remember the exact years, but it was quite a while ago either of my grandparents still were alive.

    Have a happy Easter weekend as well!

        Yes, of course. My farmor used to live in the next apartment complex to ours, so she was very near. After the death of my morfar, my mormor moved around a lot and for a short while ended up in our same neighbourhood.

        On my father’s side of the family, we held a big family reunion last year. While not every cousin and children of those could make it, a lot of us met – some for the first time ever. It was quite nice, I hope we can do it again even though our common farmor/mormor is long gone and our own parents are getting seriously old.

        On my mother’s side though, while I don’t have many siblings, I barely know anyone by name, much less where they live today or what they do for a living. That is a bit sad, but perhaps it could be remedied one day.

      • OH a family reunion. That sounds great! Both my families (mother’s and father’s) have been really bad at spending time together and knowing each other. I hardly ever meet anyone besides my mother and my grandmother and my father and his parents when they are alive. It’s sad I think.
