Problems with Care2

I’m still having trouble accessing Care2. Fortunately, I can still sign petitions and click to donate, but it seems impossible to keep in touch with other members. I guess most people are on Facebook now. Does anyone else have these problems? Or aren’t you on Care2 at all?

My book reviews and personal stuff

I just wanted to mention (again, I think) that I also blog about my life in general and post book reviewson my other blogs. Normally, I also have a personal homepage where I do all that, and post a few short stories too, but for quite a long time now I’ve been having trouble with my homepages (I also have a vegan page with recipes and a fan fiction site).

Here are my other blogs:

Intruders in the yard

Today, we caught some intruders snooping around our yard, and our neighbors’, taking photos with a long lens. They’d parked their car in our yard and had picked some flowers but didn’t treat them like they cared.

My sister went outside and confronted them. The woman claimed that it was ‘so beautiful’ here. (Which it isn’t, not particularly). She also said that they’d been here yesterday and since didn’t see any car, they assumed no one was at home. Like that’s an excuse to trespass. We don’t have a car, so there’s never a car. What’s a bit unnerving is that we never noticed them yesterday. I just happened to be looking out the window and caught sight of the woman on the dirt path outside.

I really don’t like living here. Hopefully, we’ll be able to move soon. It’s not a good place to live for more than one reason.

Tumblr and Midsummer

After some years away from Tumblr I have a new blog there aagain. You’re welcome to visit me there if you like. I share the same petitions etc but I also reblog good posts I find there so the content is slightly different.

I would also like to wish my friends and followers a Happy Midsummer!

Care2 down

I can’t access Care2, can you? No web browsers on my computer will let me access the site. The Petition Site is ok, it’s just the ‘main’ site that doesn’t work for me. Does anyone else have a problem?

Mother’s Day

Today it’s Mother’s Day in Sweden, and since I have a mother and I am a mother, I thought I’d write a post about that. I’d also like to mention my dad, who is no longer with us, and my grandfather who left us even earlier, but I think I’ll save that for Father’s Day even if it makes me sad thinking about all those who are no longer with us.

So, today I’d like to remember and thank all the wonderful women in my family who are mostly no longer with us. Some were mothers, some wanted to be but weren’t.

Thank you aunt G, who was such a wonderful aunt and who had a fascinating and varied life, despite claims to the contrary. Thank you great-aunts S, M, M, A and the two E:s, for being such kind and thoughtful aunts. I’d also like to mention ‘aunt’ E (another E) who I never got to meet, but who according to my mom was a really funny, cheerful and inspiring woman, despite a very difficult life.

Then there’s my maternal grandmother S, who I resemble a lot. I can still hear your voice in my head and I know what you would have thought or said about all kinds of things in every day life.

Also, my mom who is still alive and well and living with us. You were a wonderful mom when my sister and I were children. We’ve all had a difficult life and you may be a touch grumpy and harsh these days, but I can understand why.

I’d also like to thank my sister G who is not a mother yet, but hopefully will be soon. You’re my best friend and my role model. I admire you so much. This family would be nothing without you.
