If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now. It's just a spring clean for the May queen

Good Evening!
It's Walpurgis Night ... Bonfire's and fireworks .... Though to me this tradition is linked to Midsummer, so I'm saving the bonfire for Midsummer Eve. Anyway - here they celebrate. A sort of cleaning-up-after-winter-feast. May 1st marks the official start if the summer season. Tiger doesn't seem to care much about the fireworks. He's now parked himself on top of one of the book-boxes .... Enables him to see what's going on outside. Enjoyed a glass of Ben & Jerry. New taste. Very yummi!

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure, 'cause you know sometimes words have two meanings

Freshed baked bread ready. Filled with dark chocolate bites, lemon, apricot and cinnamon. Yummi! - Oh, and look what I have in the freezer xD Nice!!!!! Gonna enjoy all this in 'Lewi's' thrilling company.



I've got this song in my head. Annie Lennox' 'Shining light'. It's going popular again thanks to the new Lindex commercial. I'm gonna see if I can find the video and play it for you.
Husband's packing. He'll be on the road again early tomorrow morning. Then the house will be quiet again and the TV set on pause-mode xD
I skipped the dust-busting today ... Postponed till - mañana?

Does anybody know what we are living for? I guess i'm learning

Been re-arranging on the blog again. Hope it's easier to move around for you now.
Pretty boring day this is. Ought to sweep over the house with the dust-buster. Cannot find any spirit for that.... Bake a bread perhaps???? - Yeah. What a great idea! Tiger's bored as well. He's making a lot of noise ......





My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies. Fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die. I can fly, my friends

I just have to play this for you. This guy has a magnificant voice. His name is Steve Thoreson

Charlotte:%20Otroligt%20m%C3%A4ktig%20r%C3%B6st%20Steve!

So ya thought ya might like to go to the show. To feel that warm thrill of confusion, that space cadet glow

Good Morning! - Or is it Noon?
Slept till 10 and started the day with the Gilmore's. Love that series!
The sun seems to have forgotten how to shine .... I believe for the first time in 2 weeks.
At least the clouds in the sky are white.

Now to breakfast and the Daily Wails ....


PS: It's blueberry soup in the cup - not coffee xD

Congratulations! You have just discovered the secret message. Please send your answer to 'Old Pink', Care of the funny farm, Chalfont

Almost midnight and soon time to go to bed.
Just spoke to Emily. She's checking sites like the Swedish version of ebay for cameras .... A 7 year old second hand camera costs more than a brand new camera ... Who's the owner?  Annie Leibovitz?
In the meantime, I found out who Mary Thomsson is. And her name is not Mary, her name is Mette (and Thomsson was not correct either xD), and she's my cousin. HAHAHAHA - Mystery solved xD
Pouring the last cup of coffee, then de-mask and head on the pillow for a good power nap!
Sweet dreams!
zzzZZZZzzzz

Got thirteen channels of shit on the TV to choose from

Good Evening!
How are you?
Been fairly in-active on the blog today. Sorry. Been out since 7 this morning, but now I'm finally home and guess what?!? It's FRIDAY!!!!!
Went for an afterwork event, which was fine, though I didn't really get the point, basicly because I'm too tiny to see and apparently I also have a hearing problem :P

Tiger's favorite place in my room: On top of a box full of books xD - Lazy little boy.
Husband tells me that someone by the name of Mary Thomsson's sms-ed me to advice me about her travelling plans. I have no idea who the lady in mention is, but hope she'll enjoy the trip.
In desperate need of a snack ......

You cannot buy hapiness but you can buy ice cream and that's kind of the same thing

Am 12 months again, just learning how to eat ... Carefully break the bread and stuff it into my mouth  ... Try to figure out how to chew. Which teeth are for chewing and which are for biting? And how do you bite off a slice of chocolate? - Break it with my fingers instead and stuff that into my mouth as well. Easier xD It's a b@#ody akward feeling, I can tell you that. Never thought I would be this young again. Wonder how many weeks it's gonna take me to learn? I actually find this much harder to learn than a new computer programme. It's not even a matter of pain. It's a simple matter of surviving in the blind :P - Did you btw know how hard it is to spit when having no teeth?A colleague of mine asked me if I could take my teeth out. I said "Yes" ... She told me not to. - Well of course I'm not gonna expose my teeth in daylight, for crying out loud! I'm 12 months old and I'm a Vampire, right!!!!

Time has come for you to see that life is a game you'd rather play or flee

Hey there! How are you?
I'm good! It's been a long day. Ended with a nice visit at the hairdresser to fix summer on top of the head xD
Tomorrow event with work at a local restaurant. Then weekend at last ...
Tiger woke me up around 2:30 this morning - begging for his pre-breakfast. After digesting that, he fell into a coma sleep, while I lay awake for yet another hour. I was so tired when it was time for me to actually get up and step out into the real world. Felt like a zombie most of the day. But tomorrow morning, my sleeping heart shall not hesitate for 1 second after feeding ritual .... ZZZzzzZZZZ

The camera will make you god. That's how Jack became sainted

I went to a shop I had forgotten all about today while chasing outdoor table. They had so many kitchy things. It was as if I'd entered the land of Kitchgrila .... I found lavender and vanilla scented candles, mosquito candles, and then I found this glockenspiel ....The wind decides which melody to be played ... Bear with me dear neighbours :P


Baby Tiger is absent minded today. Twice he forgot to deliver the bullets at his place. But nevermind. A wet cloth and a bit of Ajax Fleur removes the traces and the smell xD
Which makes me wonder .... How come they have to call it Ajax Fleur? As if there really was flower essences in it?!? - Of course there isn't ... it's pure chemical. Remember their slogan 'Clean like a white tornado'! - Hint, hint  .... What are we? - Fools?!?

You know what common people are like. Give us a drop of caviar and we're yellin' for rock salmon

Good Evening!
How are you?
I'm doing well. Been at work for an evening meeting with my Team.
While walking to the meeting, I was wondering why there were so many people in the streets. Over crowded actually - which is strange on a dumb Wednesday. Turns out I'd missed all the fun. The local choir that won the choir competition on Monday, was giving an out-door concert at the central city square ....
Anyway ... Since at least one of my readers wasn't able to play the video on Monday, here it is again. This is for you Jacob

Team%20Andreas%20-%20Hallelujah

In the end we're all Jerry Springer Show guests, really, we just haven't been on the show

Didn't find any coffee table ... Buhh! - Nevermind ... will contiue the search.
I've now been flashing my new teeths for 5 hours, and I must say - it's going very well. No pains at all. I also  tested to eat some bread, and it didn't kill me.
Spoil-myself-day so I stopped at the bakery when passing by and bought some delicious cakes. Yummi!



We believe in everything we say - we say it because we believe it

Good Morning!
How are you today?
Me? - I'm good ... At least as long as my face is anesthetized.
Back from the dentist .... Final work done. Blood taste in my mouth ...... It looks pretty, but I can't tell you how it feels ... . A couple of hours, then ... xP
It's a beautiful day today. Sunshine and greenery ... Trees in full blossom. This light green color! I love it!


Searching for a coffee table for the outdoor area .... There is this little shop that I forgot all about .... I'll be going there this afternoon to see what I can find. ....

I see a little silhouetto of a man ....

Hey there!
Did you notice the tabs? Everything begins with a T. - Obsession maybe .. or simply a matter of coincidence?
I said Verdi, didn't I? I meant Puccini xD But nevermind - All roads lead to Rome. Tosca, Opera, A Night at the Opera, Bohemian Rhapsody ...
In 1975 Sid Vicious was just a punk - and we'd never heard that word associated with garage. While Marilyn Manson was 6 and cute, David Bowie went plastic soul. Alice Cooper was a Nightmare, Kiss was Alive and Queen took us to the opera ... In 1975 I was 12 years old. And this was the best music I had ever heard. - Still love it to bits!


Eccentrics are only tolerated so long as they come up with the goods

Good Evening!
I hope your day is going well.
Mine's been fairly good.
Been working all day and did quite well ... At least I'm happy xD
The morning was a bit chilly - but now seems to be quite fine. Not warm, warm, hot, but warm and sunny. Hope it shall last forever and ever .... Was not made for cold climate. Someone forgot to deliver me with an overcoat! Where can I file a complaint by the way ? .....
Day off tomorrow - for the final dentist work (my hopes and prays) ... Will keep you updated on that department .....
Check fb and the news ... I seem to be living in complete blindness these days ... Has something of importance happened? Presumably not :P
We had fika today. Kim I. baked it. Pretty good cake he made there. I need to check his recipe to share it with you ...... It was Tosca cake and very Verdi ... Nam, nam, nam!

Are we strong enough to climb up to the sky? The wizard of the holy is strong enough to fly

Hey there!
Enjoying my last evening of my mini-vacation.
No thunder yet though .... But it sure feels as an option, which I believe you'll be able to see if you click on the 8:19 Experiment tab :D
Baby Tiger is having a hard time finding a place to rest. Right now he's in the guest bed (sorry - must remember to remove every trace of cat hair from there). Earlier, he found a spot on the bedroom floor that could do for half an hour .....


9:15 pm: Listening to the wonderful local choir 'Team Andreas' doing their grand final. They sing Leonard Cohen's 'Halleluja'.... Beautiful! May they win this competition. Did you remember to vote?So now, we're all waiting for the result. Crossing my fingers, waiting for the votes to be counted. If our team wins, I promise I will upload the video from tonight. You'll love it!

9:26 pm: YES!!!!!! They did it!!!!! Fantastic. This is the wow-factor! So here they are

Team%20Andreas%20-%20Hallelujah

Fantastic, c'est la vie mesdames et messieurs

Smells like thunder ... I wonder .....
I love thunder, though can't remember when I experienced thunder in April????
If it bursts, I'm the happiest person on Earth ... Thunder is spooky and magical at the same time. I usually sit outside, listen to the rain, watch the lightning. It fascinates me to see a thunderstorm move across the sky. Depending on how near you it is, you might be able to predict when and where lightning will strike.
I've never managed to get a good shot of a thunderstorm with my camera. I think you need a lot of experience to be able to press the button in the right milli-second .......



In ancient times, people belived that thunderstorms occurred when the god Thor rode in his chariot led by two goats, Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjóstr. The thunder came from the wheels and the lightning from the sparks from the wheels when braking or hitting rocks ....

It's a beautiful day. I feel good, I feel right. And no-one, no-one's gonna stop me now

Hey, Hey! How's life?Just returned back from our expedition into the blue. Very nice little trip. We didn't find exactly what we were looking for, but that's okay. Found something similar, or as good as you can get it on a sunny day like this xD
Husband insisted on this ... Sorry for forgetting the cheese bow :P


This was a beautiful spot. See how the melted water from the hills gushes into the lake. There's still a little bit of snow left, but I'm sure that will be gone in less than a week
 

I'm a little short

Good Morning to you on this beautiful day!
Hope you slept well.
I can see the grass growing xD
Smells like this is gonna be a good day.
Last day of my mini-holiday though *sigh* - Tomorrow is another day at the races.
I've got a cup full of coffee and ready for adventures. We're off to see what nature has to offer of un-exploited wonders.
Warm and sunny .. Hm ... Wondering what to wear ......
Todays headlines:
Syrian troops attacks (civil war?)
Samsung strikes back - sues Apple for plagiarism
And Suri Cruise is the oldest 5 year old in the world
..... In other words: All Quiet on the Western Front I presume ... Minding my own business

An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity

Yummi! Ice cream was delicious! - And I still have strawberries left for tomorrows breakfast xD
Just need to buy more Ben & Jerry .....


Will be exploring the lake of Gryttjen tomorrow. As far as I remember, there is an old factory at the western shore that could be worth a visit .... Looking forward to that.
Now it's time for me and Baby Tiger to go to bed. Meooow!

We're lucky we got anything at all. I don't think Buddy Holly's much of a waiter

Good Evening to you!
Preparing for my Sunday Evening joy ... 'Midsomer Murders' .... Emptying the freezer for ice cream, slicing strawberries and picking the best pieces of chocolate to add this delicious summer dessert. In case you wonder - Yes, I will take pictures and share with you when ready :P

Strawberries can be used even in omelets. Emily will nodd her head and agree with me.
 - Making a good, solid omelet is the easiest thing on Earth:

5 eggs
1/2 deciliter of cream
Wisp it together
Add a little peppar and some salt
Pour onto a hot pan
Add the ingredients you like - chicken, potatoes, tomatoes, bananas, apples, rasperries, strawberries, sausages, bacon, cheese - just pick your favorites
Bake for 10-15 minutes and

Voilá! - to be served on a hot plate with a glass of your favorite wine, a beer or - as in my case - cold juice


I can eat this in the morning, for lunch, in the afternoon or for dinner....

That's the Marilyn Monroe section, that's Mamie Van Doren... I don't see Jayne Mansfield ... she must have the night off or something

Poor Tiger. It's too hot for him outside. He's looking for a shady place to laze ....
 

Could take him out for a walk, but he's no friend with the harness he has to wear ... Will see what happens. Tonight when it's a bit cooler, we can take a walk into the woods

Look at the birch! It's really beautiful now. Leaves are opening now bit by bit. Lovely!


Trying to read, but there's awfully hot at the balcony now. 50 degrees celsius is a bit overrated .... Cooling down with a glass of Russian Blue, as I still haven't been able to get any Russian Black, which is my prefered tea label. Emily my dear, is Black Russian for sale in Sundsvall, I wonder?
The curtains I hung up yesterday really makes the kitchen much nicer. The light is let in, but the sun is kept out. Good thought you got there Charlotte. Clever you!
That's the funny thing here. There's no real spring and no real autumn. The snow melts and BAM! Hot summer! Sometimes I miss the in-betweens ....

People do it everyday, they talk to themselves... they see themselves as they'd like to be

After 3 cups of coffee and breakfast, I'm now fully awake.
Beautiful day by the way. Sunshine and light green trees. Summer is here to stay!
Tiger's a funny creature. He woke me up around 4 this morning, begging for his pre-breakfast. So I gave it to him. When done with it, he decided to go back to bed for a power-nap. He slept till 10.30 - then he remembered "Oh, gee! I'm late for breakfast!" and started to circle around, pushing me with his nose "Get up now! I'm hungry!!!!!" Cats live their own lives .... They don't have owners, they have slaves. And accidently I happen to be a pretty good slave xD
If you'd like to see the result from last nights 8:19 experiement, please click on the 8:19 tab above ....
I my previous post I let Lisa's choir sing you a song to wake you up. Some would call me a traitor .... But Hey! Lisa is no longer in the competition, so it's not too dangerous to play her. I still vote for Andreas, and he will win! Because in this county, we just KNOW how to :P

Team%20Andreas%20-%20Angels

What happened to all the competent people? That's what I'd like to know. Was there some giant hole they all fell into or a virus that struck them all down, leaving the morons of the world to sit behind the desks?

Uh .. uh ... Good Morning!?!
Need caffeine to get started. Oj, oj, oj. .....
It's Sunday, right? - Thought so ...
Wake me up with a good song
