Hedda and Granny are sitting in the twilight room threading bead days on their necklaces. Bead days are the days and the small wonderful moments in life that Hedda wants to remember and keep for ever.

When Hedda’s Mum and Dad have boring things to do, Hedda is allowed to stay with Granny and Rufsen instead. In Granny’s house it’s never boring. Granny helps sick animals, but sometimes she has to do things that Hedda and Rufsen think are horrible. So then they stay out of the way and play. Hedda is going to have the best summer ever with Granny and help her with everything because you have to grab the moment, Granny says. Hedda finds a little thrush with an injured wing that Granny helps her to take care of, but then Granny gets tired, so tired. Hedda decides to take care of Granny and fill her necklace with the best moments ever.

A sunny and sad summer story about life.
