Green fika

Yesterday’s fika and a to-do list I wrote… a long time ago. I woke up and said to Johan OK, now I’m going to choose one thing to do from the list and if I start to procrastinate, I’m only allowed to do so with something else from the list. It worked very well – got 1 thing done and a 2nd one started. The list contains both things I want to do and things I have to do, a good combination. To-do lists used to stress me out until I realised that I’m a person who needs to SEE things. I don’t understand words & names until I see how they are spelled (I once asked the guy at my local kiosk to write down his name for me, I lost the note and still don’t know his name), I can’t remember what’s inside drawers, boxes and cupboards and so on. Who can relate?

The fabric is from Marimekko, a nice lady gave it to me about 17 years ago – she and her husband had bought a summerhouse and the fabric was hanging in a door opening and I said WOW and she said It’s yours. They had a Jack Russell terrier called Morgan to whom I used to write postcards. The books are street finds. The Domino is Johan’s. The plums are tasty & from Denn’s. The paper is from Papyrus. The headphones belong to my phone. The pen is from Penxacta. The candleholder is from a thriftstore. The cup is a present from Johan. The eyeglasses case is my grandfather’s mum’s. The spoon is from Boxi flea market. The candle is from DM. The coffee is from Rewe. The milk is from Denn’s. I am from Luleå.

Don’t think I forgot anything. Today: Go to Alt-Mariendorf to work. Tomorrow: Go to a wonderful restaurant and eat/work in the early evening. Friday: Might go to Bite Club at their new location at Gleisdreieck. Inbetween these things, there is a to-do list.

Do you write to-do lists?

    Ja och ja! Ja, jag har behöver också få saker nedskrivna (men har tänkt att det beror på dåligt minne pga massiv stress för några år sen) och ja: definitivt att göra-listor (massa olika varianter). Kul att få se din!

    Jag vill gärna skriva ner saker i en “To-Do” men sen glömmer jag av listan… :o( Till skillnad från dig så har jag ett bra fotografiskt minne, ser saker och vet på ett ungefÄr var jag såg dem senast. Lådor och skåp håller inga hemligheter för mig om jag har tittat i dom en gång.
    Vad gäller ord och namn så är det mycket lättare att förstå dem när man har sett dem i skrift, annars blir det ju bara ljud…
