Good morning Tuesday!
I hope your weekend was awesome.
Mine was, in many different ways.
I went to a vineyard, I went on a long hike and I also met up with the crew from Sveriges Radio (Swedish national radio).
We all had breakfast together in Adams Morgan (DC) yesterday. It is so interesting to be around when they do live broadcasting.
Here is the direct link to the interview.
It’s been a fantastic journey for me, and my friends Anna and Susanna, to have been part of this. It all started back at the election when I got contacted by SR. And, it ended (for now, at least) with “The first 100 days”.
I am so happy that Ginna Lindberg has been reading my blog for many years. It is thanks to her, and this forum, that we ended up being “Washingtonfruar” (Washington wives) in the first place. I am glad that I was one of Ginna’s “experts” when she moved herself, and her family, to DC from Stockholm to be Swedish Radio’s correspondent to DC. Now Ginna is back in Sweden again, but she travels to DC a lot thru her job at the news.
Live broadcast from Tryst Cafe in Adams Morgan in Washington DC.

Catta and Martin. You gotta have fun at work!!
Fun, fun, fun …
We have gained SO MUCH thru this journey, from new friends to brand new experiences.
Great new friends! Thanks for this wonderful and fun experience. Sometimes it DOES pay off to be a blogger! Ginna, Lotta, Catta, myself, Anna and Martin!
As I stated above, I have also been to a winery (one of the many, many vineyards we have here in Northern Virginia) over the weekend.
My friend (and neighbor) Ingrid is a mother-of-the-groom-to-be. Her eldest son, Chris is getting married on Saturday. Us neighbor-girlies thought it would be fun to treat Ingrid to a winery and make a relaxing afternoon out of it. SO, we did!! Good friends and decent wine (Virgina wines are not exactly like California wines. It is decent, at its best. However, the vineyards and the nature are BEAUTIFUL).

Selfie time. Or groupie time.
It was also a very hot and humid weekend.
VERY hot, like middle of the summer hot, 34 C (93F).
A good weekend with good, old friends. And good, new friends!!
