Back in the USSA

Very sleepy.  I can't seem to get over this jetlag, wish I could hop into bed (this bed) right now.  But no, nicht, nej - it's not time to sleep, and this is not my bed.  Wish it was, but it's a beautiful shot from "Helt Enkelt" a Swedish blog that I enjoy.  Check it out here if you need a fix of pretty pictures at like the ones below.  These photos are all taken by Anna-Malin.

Idea Three from Popular Mechanics 

Make a treehouse -- ok, so this one is seriously involved but maybe with some hubby help?  Here's the link tree house. It would…
