Weekend for Emma

It's Wednesday and it's weekend, for me. I'm off aaaall until Monday. I'll be doing laundry, I'll try to work out a bit, stroll the streets of Stockholm, maybe bake something for my guests coming Friday... But the best thing is i don't have to have any plans, if I don't want to.

November 20, 2009

I read the book (well the whole series) so naturally I want to see the movie. I love seeing how books turn out on the screen, even though they never reach the heights of the book. Today is the world premiere and I was thinking I'd go sometime next week amybe, when there will be tickets available. But, I'm planless tonight, so I took a look at the availability. And to my surprise, there were a few tickets left. I never would have thought. So I'm going, tonight, alone. I won't actually be alone though, as you can imagine. It'll be packed. So New moon premiere it is, tonight, November 20, 2009.

Very good stuff

Trip to Kiel in pictures

Breakfast in B's kitchen

B's delicious cupcakes

We had dinner á la us

We went to a concert at café Prinz Willy

But the singer wasn't that great

Of coourse we had to try the Kiel brewed beer

Warm pretzels

B had coffee! (never happens)

Went sightseeing and shopping in Hamburg

And we ate good

Went for a boat trip in the Hamburg port, one of Europe's largest

Die Schanze, Hamburg


Had brunch and made our own waffles with cherries

Enjoyed some sun

No, I really don't have anything to complain about

I spend this day thinking about all the people that do have something real that burdens them.

How many times this year did I say this?

I'm home! Germany was loads of fun and I can't thank B enough :) More about that later though. I wanna show you some news in in my place, the best one probably the "trophy" I found this weekend at a flea market in Hamburg :) Only 5 EUR! I have yet to figure out where and most of all how to hang it. Other than these things I also bough some books (never to forget) to stock up my German litterature collection. And last week I clicked home some walldecos that arrived today, didn't they turn out fabulous?!

My daily dose of inspiration


Tomorrow is the day I fly to Germany

Tomorrow I'm flying off to Germany once again. Oh how I like that place, strange, isn't it?! B seems to have a lot of fun stuff planned and we have a bunch of things to choose from. One of the things that I am mostly looking forward to is having a long and very tasty brunch :)

Getting there

My home is slowly built up to be just that, a home. Today I got a curtain for the kitchen window, I think that makes it look way more homely. I like my place even though it isn't nearly ready yet. But I like it :) To top the day off, I made a zucchini casserole. Mighty proud of myself.

Es lebe Deutschland!

20 Years today! Ich wünschte ich könnte heute in Berlin sein und mit dem deutschen Volk diesen historischen Tag der Freiheit feiern! Hurra hurra hurra! Ich darf mindestens am Donnerstag nach Kiel fahren ;)

Great buys

Oh I gotta show you some of my newest buys! First, the best buy of the winter 2009/2010: my Filippa K parka!

Love it! Really warm, like we need them up here in the north, and just faboulusly good looking. Second: a well needed clothing rack! Serves its purpose well of keeping clothes that don't fit in my closet (...).

Third: A cute little hallway piece in teak from the fifities. I found it on the net and bought it from a really nice little old lady that turned out to be from Germany. I like Germany, I said. So did her dead husband.

Reading, cooking, feeling

I don't update alot. But seriously, my life isn't that interesting. Pretty much like anybody else's. Ok, not that boring. Lat night I had C and K over for our first bookclub dinner, I made baked salmon with potatoes and mushroom sauce. I'm getting waaay better at this cooking thing and for the first time I actually kind of like it. So did they. K presented the next book and I've already bought it, it seems more than great: Kärlek: en betraktelse (Essays in love) by Alain de Botton.

Last weekend I got to go home and relax. A long weekend with a hurting arm. Yes, I got vaccinated for (well against actually) the swine flu. Not only was I about to burst into tears afterwards (which I didn't dare tell my mom) because I'm such a whimp when it comes to needled, blood and such but I had a very painful upper arm for the next tree days. But you should all still go take the shot people. They say it's worth it.

My very kind boss let me home an hour early today :) Considering that I work weekend it's well needed. Tonight I'm going with my friend E to a friend of hers place, for a Singstar evening. Now, I'm not musical, not anywhere, but I kinda like Singstar 'cause you get to compete and it's not actually real singing anyway. But I know E is a great singer, and so is R, who's also coming. I have no idea about the guy we're visiting or his friends. The whole point of the evening is kinda me being E's chaperon so that she can see this guy. If it means doing a good deed, I guess win-win situation for me ;)

For my sensitive scalp

My scalp is very sensitive and at the moment very dry. Grocery store shampoo is death for the scalp. Now I found this piece from Björn Axén and I'm hoping that it will help me and my scalp to calm down.

Not a day too soon

Starbucks is coming to Sweden! Ok, so they're settling down at Arlanda airport, I guess we just have to travel more. Or just hang out at the airport. I'm hoping for more ones, closer to the city, now that they're finally here. Although, we have decent coffe houses in Sweden already, not complaining. But as a coffeaddict I always welcome more caffeine providers.

Everyday luxury

Sushi for dinner - just because. I'm worth it.


That's what my book is turning into. It's way philosophical intergalactical dirt crazy! There's no way to explain it. But it's still so good that I spent hours in the bathtub reading it the other night...
