True, my blog turned 7 years old the other day, CAN you believe it!
How do you like my English entries? Do you think I should keep them?
For me, it feels natural to write in English once a week. And, I know I have some faithful readers on Tuesdays. Thanks guys!!
It is sort of a “Suburb deal”, the English posts.
The weekend was a busy one for my little family. It started with Prom on Friday (see Sunday’s post. You’ll find a huge picture explosion there).
All the kids had such a great, and fun, time at the Prom (and afterwards).
Saturday, we spent the evening in downtown DC while Karolina and her friend Sequoia went to the Ed Sheeran/Taylor Swift concert at The Verizon Center.
Peter and I hung out in the meantime.
We had drinks and appetizers at one place, and then dinner at another restaurant.
Actually, time flew.
The girls had a really good time at the concert. They love Ed Sheeran, and they also have “newfound respect” for Taylor Swift now.
I am not a big fan of Taylor, but some songs are pretty good. Ed Sheeran? Yes, I do think he’s good!
Sunday was Mother’s Day here in the US.
Peter fixed a lovely breakfast for me.
I so appreciate it. I got cards (super nice ones), a dress, nail polishes, chocolate and a lantern.
I do think Mothers everywhere deserve Mother’s Day. Moms do a lot of things for their families all the time. They are the glue and the foundation.
Why not take a moment for them on Mother’s Day?
Some people claim that it is a commercial holiday. I do NOT CARE!!
Celebrate your mother. Celebrate the moms in your life. Who can even oppose this?
It does not have to be much, a nice breakfast and some heartfelt cards do wonders.
Mother’s Day in the US is HUGE!! And, I personally, think that is nothing but GREAT!!
So, Swedes, your Mother’s Day is coming up in about two weeks!
Make it a very SPECIAL day for your mother! Or, make it a special day for some other woman who means a lot to you!
DO not let the day slide. Promise me!
We have Father’s Day here (in the US) in June. And, yes, all dads deserve it, too.
Of course! They are rocks in our lives.
I have to think of something splendid for Peter!
The weather is on the cool side.
NO PERIODICAL CICADAS. YET!! They will arrive. Very, very soon. I am sure I’ll write about it when the day arrives.
The following pics are some recent Instgram pics. I shoot all my insta-pics with my iPhone 4s. I use the app Camera+ ALL THE TIME!!!
That is my camera of choice on the iPhone.
If I do any editing, I use Laminar Pro, or I just lighten the pics up in Camera+.
I carry the iPhone with me ALL the time, So during the PW's I do stop to take pics. I cannot help myself. A lot of these pics end up on Instagram, but not all of them. Naturally.
I am Skandigirl on Insta.
I am working in the garden, and on the deck.
This is the summer when it will look LUSH and COZY here, all the time.
I’ll make sure. I will be here, as you know.
Well, my lovelies!!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
