Hela rubbet - Lock, stock and....

Jag står i bassängen och svalkar mig. Annars sitter jag i skuggan och stickar. Raggsockar. Unnar mig en stilla stund. I'm standing in the pool to cool myself. Besides that I sit in the shadow and knit. Woollen socks. Giving myself a quiet moment.

Det är tur att det fläktar lite, vi har 26 grader i skuggan... It's a good thing there's a breeze, we have 26 degrees C... (For those of you unfamiliar with Swedish climate; it's a good day in July if you have 25 degrees, it's pretty unsusual for the first of June!) Märk väl att jag icke klagar. NB, I'm not complaining.
Inomhus är allt sig likt, Lisa ler. Lisa är flickhuvudet.In doors everything's the same, Lisa's smiling. Lisa's the girls head. Vi har haft ett par tuffa dagar med magsjuka, förkylningar, konflikter och vanlig nu-slutar-snart-skolan-stress. Ni vet, det är utflykter, matsäckar, insamlingar till fröknar, examenspresenter och hela medevitten... Jag hoppas bli en bättre bloggare någon gång nästa vecka!
We've had a couple of rough days with stomach disorders, colds, conflicts and ordinary school's-almost-out-stress. You know, outings, packed meals, money collectings for presents to teachers, graduation presents and lock, stock and barrel... I'm hoping to become a better blogger some time next week!

Det började med ett stilla regn på förmiddagen. sedan kom solen och hettan, mycket skönt, men lite konstigt för årstiden.
Nu undrar jag om det ska bli åska och regn, himlen mörknar!
Så fin Lisa är i sin prickiga scarfes!

Now that sounds like living - cool pool and knitting. Lovely weekend. We're getting into the last two weeks of school. I can hardly believe it and I'm sure the rush/crush will begin.

Har du en egen pool?? Nu blev jag lätt avundsjuk... fast å andra sidan har jag badat hela tre ggr i 18-gradigt havsvatten...
Hoppas raggisarna blir fina.

What a contrast - feet in the pool or knitting woolen socks!

Hope things are improving Anna - sounds like a very busy, crazy time for you...

Lisa's smile is helping me out here on a rainy Monday morning. Thanks Lisa!

I was talking to my husband yesterday about how hot it gets in Sweden so early in Summer. He knows much more about geography than me and he said that wasn't so. I said "but Maria is very hot! she said so!" and now you are very hot too....but he was right...it IS unusual. In any case, I almost forgot about the grey, cold day we were having here!

And OF COURSE it was me with the eyeshadow pictures :)

Ja, oj vad det var varmt i Skåne! Men det blir nog lika varmt här under dag tror jag. Men man ska ju inte klaga, det är bara det att man blir lite chockad! Tur att Lisa ler, låter som en tuff vecka!

Vejret er også helt fantastisk her i Danmark......Skønt at kunne bruge sit sommertøj og gå i bare tæer!

Og at svale fødderne i et bassin, er noget af det dejligste man kan gøre på sådan en varm dag. Held og lykke med ragsokkerne ;0)

Sounds like the stomach disorders are moving from Germany up to Sweden...sorry to hear about that.

On a happier note, I have my aprons up right now! Come by for a visit...

Hope to see you soon!

Sorry to hear about the stomach disorders and colds - dipping your feet in the pool looks like a good remedy, though! (Sock knitting is another good one...) Take care!

Ahh.. the school's almost out stress. As a teacher, I know it well. You would think we could all begin breathing sighs of relief that the end was near... but the students get so stressed and wound up, and so do we. As a parent, it is also crazy busy with end of year everything. So between the two, I will be grateful for June 14th, when I am officially done! Then I can be a better blogger as well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and the nice comment. I have been to Sweden and we have many Swedish friends (my beloved used to work for Ericsson)The summer we were there it was cool...which was a relief from our normal very warm temps (30C)
