WALKING ON SUNSHINE
So far, this has been an absolutely wonderful and relaxing long weekend and there's still the rest of this evening and all of tomorrow to enjoy of it. Karin is up in Gothenburg, participating in the Future Cup Invitational, as goalie for her team. They are playing in the semi-final game tonight, but we can hopefully keep track of the match progress live on the website. They won their first 3 games and she only let in one goal, so she was sounding quite happy when I talked to her a couple of hours ago.

Yesterday, we had some good friends over that we haven't seen in ages and it was so nice to catch up with them. Anders made a fantastic dinner of pulled pork, grilled spare ribs, twice-baked potatoes and fresh asparagus and I made a strawberry meringue cake for dessert. Yum! We've been enjoying the leftovers today.

I couldn't get Martin to go driving again (he claims it was enough that we went yesterday) but I did manage to get him out for a long walk. The sunshine was perfect, the skies beautifully blue and signs of spring were everywhere. We walked all the way across the village and over the river to Flyingeby and walked around the Kungsgård stables, with a stop by the storks as well...and I saw my first pied wagtail! The definitive sign that spring is here! ...but I sure paid the price. By the time we got home, my eyes were red and itching like mad and I was sneezing my head off. Argh.

Spring in Sweden is clearly beautiful. :-)

It is, indeed!

That ladybug picture! Incredible! We are quite a bit behind you on the leafing out, I'd say, but our neighbor's magnolia tree is almost in full bloom. One more warm sunny day ought to do the trick.

There were actually 3 of them really close together on the trunk of that tree... so cool! The magnolias's are blooming here, too :)

We have no leaves yet. We finally warmed up on Sunday. Last Wednesday it snowed, so we are READY for SPRING already! Love your pictures, and so happy to hear of a PERFECT weekend. I wish I could have come for dinner. It sounds amazing. Happy belated Easter!! xoxoxoxox

Re: From Megsie

No leaves at all? That's crazy talk! I can't believe you still have snow. It's been REALLY nice here for several days and everything is popping. Looks like rain tonight though! Happy Belated Easter to you, too!

Great photos - I can see Spring in them - hopefully I'll be seeing it here soon! Although, there is a blooming crocus in the yard and daffodils are showing a little yellow -but it is cold again today and freezing at night. Love, Lizardmom

It's freezing here right now, too. Brrr! Where did the warm temps go??
