Can I offer you some coffee? Or tea? My son and I went to pick up some more moving boxes today. It’s only three weeks until the move. It is starting to feel very real. I’ve packed some of our things, and I’ve sold some furniture that won’t be moving with me (my red couch and the outdoor furniture that I had at my balcony.) I’ve shared the app that I use to sell my old clothes with before, and I use a similar (but different) app to sell, and sometimes purchase furniture. I purchased the used moving boxes with that app, (sold by someone living 900ft away.) I think bartering and trading is a great way to promote, and support a circular economy, when possible. How do you feel about purchasing pre-loved things?
Some of the moving boxes we bought today, and hopefully will finish packing this weekend.
A very empty living room!
I did some crocheting this week, working on that baby blanket I talked about last week. Besides that, and some school work, it’s mostly been work. Nothing special, but nothing too bad either (there’s always tons of things happening at work.)
Outside my window right now, 5pm Saturday. It’s about 14F/-10C. A few hours from now it’s the first of a series of an annual song competition that my daughter loves. It’s about the only Swedish thing that she absolutely loves. We usually watch each competition together, with some extra delicious snacks, while debating who’s going to win.
Melodifestivalen (Swedish pronunciation: [mɛlʊˈdîːfɛstɪˌvɑːlɛn]; literally “the Melody Festival”) is an annual song competition organised by Swedish public broadcasters Sveriges Television (SVT) and Sveriges Radio (SR). It determines our representative for the Eurovision Song Contest, and has been staged almost every year since 1959. In the early 2000s, the competition was the most popular television program in Sweden; it is also broadcast on radio and the Internet. In 2012, the heats averaged 3.3 million viewers, and over an estimated four million people in Sweden watched the final, almost half of the Swedish population. The festival has produced six Eurovision winners and 25 top-five placings for Sweden at the contest. The winner of Melodifestivalen has been chosen by panels of jurors since its inception. Since 1999, the juries have been joined by a public telephone vote which has an equal influence over the outcome. The competition makes a considerable impact on the music charts in Sweden.– https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melodifestivalen
