Online-pyssel

Äntligen en chans att “ses” och prata lite! S tog initiativ och bjöd in till en Teams-träff och överraskade oss med en påse med kakor o pyssel som hängde på ytterdörren. Så trevligt! 

Vi har fikat, stöttat varandra, skrattat o pratat. Pysslat bokmärken och avnjutit en hallongrotta o peppisar. 

Vi bestämde att försöka “ses” en gång till innan jul – ser jag fram emot!

Tack mina bästaste – vad glad och tacksam jag är att vi har varandra! 

Last week

Last week of November. Where did this fall go? Next weekend it is already Advent and the countdown towards Xmas starts. After work today I went outside and took away all our solar lights for the winter. And put out the more Xmas-like ornaments which uses batteries instead of sunshine to light up.

We have a lot of leftovers in our fridge we need to finish so we gave it a go for lunch and I will continue for dinner. Going to make a wok with the meat I think. A modern version of the “pyttipanna” with noodles instead of potatoes. Went to the pharmacy to pick up some stuff and now I’m waiting for the laundry to finish. It is already dark outside and it’s only 3PM. Perfect sofa-time for another episode of “Virgin River” which I’m watching right now.

Celebration!

With a social distance we met outside to celebrate our mother today. She had prepared hotdogs and we brought cake and bubbly. It was lovely to see each other for an hour or so – chat, enjoy a lunch and see each other in person. No hugs or kissing. No sitting close. But see each other for a bit. And the weather-Gods where on our side too. Made my heart smile for a bit. 

Flag up for my mother today – happy birthday! Big virtual hug from all of us. I hope you had a nice birthday – considering – and I’m glad we could all come together for a bit. Love you! 

Rain rain rain

One year ago the three of us went on our little get-away weekend to London. That was such a great trip filled with great chats, laughter, shopping, touristing and time away from musts and have-to’s. Just perfect! We were hoping to go on another trip like this one but we will have to wait until it is safe to travel again. I wonder when that will be.

Today it is cold and rainy outside. Not inviting at all. We went to look at some wardrobes we are considering for our bedroom. We wanted to see them in person before we order anything on line. The choices of sizes are not exactly what we want so we have some thinking to do.

Shrimps

Friday again. This week went by so quickly. With all kinds of weather.

I decided to make us a treat for dinner to start the weekend. I made a steak dinner for my boys and treated myself two lovely shrimp sandwiches (which they won’t eat). With mayo, sallad, boiled egg and lovely shrimps. Served with a glass of white. Oh – it was delicious. They don’t know what they’re missing. Lol. 

We are thinking about re-decorating our bedroom over the holidays since we both have taken a couple of weeks off and we are not allowed to travel anywhere. So now we have a lot of choices to make and things to consider. Fun but tricky. 

Unhealthy..

A terrible day calorie wise.. My husband had a full day of online education so he was treated lunch. He chose to pick up McD burgers – for all of us of course. Then we were really tired after a long day so we decided to continue our unhealthy eating with a pizza dinner. Lol.

In the afternoon it started to rain and after a little while it changed to snow instead. Brrr. Really windy too so the snow went sideways outside our window. Not ready for this quite yet.

Homebaked

This covid-19 pandemic is really trying everyone’s patience. New strict rules encouraging people to only spend time with the people in their own household and only visit grocery stores, doctors and pharmacies. No other contact with family or friends. Not going to restaurants, gyms or bars or visit malls or other stores. *puh*  Work from home if possible and don’t use public transportation. Keep a social distance.

Needed to cheer ourselves up a bit so I baked some cinnamon buns for us to enjoy. They turned out great and are still warm. Feeling slightly better again now.

Amaryllis

I have always had one or more amaryllis in my windows in bloom in time for Xmas. The last couple of years they have started to bloom after new year so this year I decided to get one a bit earlier. And guess what – it is already in bloom. Bummer. It is very pretty though and already has a second scape with buds on the way. 

Long day today and quite productive. Time to get something to eat on the table. Not sure yet what it’ll be. 

New season

Finally the 4th season of The Crown has started and after worked I enjoyed a couple of episodes. And I loved it – well worth waiting for. For those of you who hasn’t watched it yet – you have a lot to look forward to! 

Grey and rainy day – not very inspiring for a walk. I went out for a bit after work but I went back home again – not very enjoyable weather. Back to the comfort of my corner with a cup of coffee and a mandarin.
