Welcome to the weekend coffee share! Can I get you a cup of coffee? Would you like to step outside, and sit at the balcony? How are you?
If we were having coffee today I would tell you that even though it is only Saturday morning I feel well rested after having both Thursday and Friday all to myself. Thursday was a holiday in Sweden, and I took Friday off, making it a four day weekend.
It’s been raining all week, which is something we badly needed. I am aware that Sweden have a lot of water compared to other regions, but compared to how it usually is here it’s been a dry year. Spring is usually a time when it rains frequently, but this year we haven’t had much rain at all. I know some farmers are worried. The rain this week is a blessing.
We are not going camping this weekend due to the rain, which is fine, we’ll have plenty of time to do that this summer. I am going to have seven weeks of freedom before starting my new job.
My daughter and I took a long walk yesterday, after a while we got completely soaked by the rain, despite wearing rain clothes. It was so much fun though, and I took the photos in this post during our walk.
Everything is so green outside. May is a beautiful month, and all the rain this week surely helped to kickstart summer. All the different types of leafy salad greens in my container garden keeps producing a rich bounty every day. Speaking of green and salads, a few months ago I switched to a completely vegetarian diet. I’ve always been eating a lot of vegetarian/vegan food, but a while back I decided to skip meat completely. I feel energetic and lighter. It’s right for me. I cook meat for my kids from time to time. They are not vegetarians and I would not dream of trying to convince them to change their diets. I think it should be a personal choice.
You may have noticed that I’ve played around with my blog a little. What do you think of my new design?
Thank you Natalie for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share. I hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend!
