Hello! Many of you remembered my birthday last week – thank you all for your kind birthday messages and wishes! The day (it was a Friday) was partly spent at my favorite cafe eating cake. There were a lot of hyacinths and presents.
And then I went out for a day in the sun testing my new Speedlight flash, which was one of the best birthday presents I could ever imagine!
I have updated my spring wardrobe with this cool blouse from Stenströms. The wild animal print features a lot of species, but the funniest one must be the giraffe wearing sneakers.
And at the same time, when you’re looking at this shirt from a distance, it simply looks like a greenish shirt with an abstract print. A pretty flattering one, too!
Above you can see some of the things I like right now. Firstly, tulips! The first day of spring is here, and what is more appropriate than tulips now? These days we always have fresh tulips at home. Somehow I got Hannes to understand that it’s as important as fresh bread on daily basis.
Secondly, I’m very much into Lucas Papaw Ointment now. It’s one of those great all-round products similar to Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream, minus the weird smell. This ointment is based on fermented papaya. Also, it’s an Australian product, and anything from down under is pretty exotic here in Sweden, which I like!
And then we have children’s books. Isn’t it wonderful to get a chance to dive into that world again? I think it is, and I’m so happy I “have to” do it thanks to Johannes now! I especially like books which have nice artistic illustrations in them. What a nice first introduction to art for a child!
There are still some days left of February, but it definitely feels like spring is in the air. The days are longer now, and spring flowers are popping out from the ground everywhere. Greger doesn’t need to wear his fur any more.
Also, I see a lot of couples. Suddenly, people everywhere are walking around holding hands. What a wonderful world!
The Olympic Games of 2014 have become historical for Sweden. The fact is that Sweden has never won as many medals during winter games as this time.
I’ve been following the Olympics religiously (as many of you know, we don’t own a TV, so I watch it online) and I can be nothing but proud of the Swedish athletes! Fourteen medals so far, and we are getting one tomorrow as well! Sweden is to meet Canada in the ice hockey final tomorrow. And we are aiming for gold!
