Today I went into town and hang out with my boyfriend. The newspaper said that today will be the last really warm day and that we can expect the temperature to drop to 10 degrees Celsius. Puurrr, cold! We decided that today was a day to be outside and enjoy the last sun we can get before the dark winter comes 😉
We visited Skansen, which is one of the places you should visit when you come to Stockholm. It is like a zoo almost, with lots of Nordic animals and other animals too, and also a place where you can see how people used to live in Sweden in the old days. Don´t forget to visit the bakery and by something sweet to yourself! My favorite is a kind of bun filled with apple sauce. Yummy! Skansen never gets boring, even though I have been there a hundred times by know.
In order to get to Skansen we took the ferry from Slussen over to Djurgården. It is a nice but short trip by boat! Much nicer than taking the trams that are stuffed with people.
Then after Skansen and all the cute animals we walked in town and ate lunch/dinner at a placed that did these great hamburgers with lots of vegetables and cheese and bacon on them. I ended the day with going to the choir practice that I have started again with since there is no longer any IB to think about.
Today I was outside and planted some flowers to get som color to the surroundings. While doing so I got a visitor, a grass snake. Grass snakes are one out of two different types of snakes that we have in Sweden and they are completely harmful (at least to us human, but if I was a frog I would watch my back). He/she was quite cute but after my snake-nightmare one week ago I try to keep a distance to them. I have never been afraid of them, but now I don’t like to look or the feeling they give me xd
This is the type of things I do now when IB is done; trying to find meaningful work to do! It is not that easy, so in between the “hard work”, I plan for my parties 😀 This saturday I will have a party for my friends to celebrate graduation and my birthday. On the menu are mini-pies with Feta cheese and tomatoes, Focaccia, pasta salad, and cappuccinobrownies and lemon-elder-pie for dessert. However, I’m still planing and if anyone as an amazing recipe to share with my they are more than welcome. I’m looking for delicious cold food that are easy to serve at parties.
