Happy National Day to Sweden!
I hope you all enjoy your day off!
I might raise a glass to my home country this evening together with my Swedish lady friends, I have a feeling that we will send the old country a thought, or two. Yes, tonight we have our annual wine-deck-Swedish-chick-evening over at my friend Lotta's house here in Reston! A fitting day for that party!
I also hope your weekend was a good one!
Weatherwise it was as good as it gets.
Warm, but not humid. Around 27-30 C (like, around 80F). The lack of humidity felt awesome.
A cuppa enjoyed in my little front yard on Friday morning. Love my time out there during early summer mornings!
Here I am!
Lots of time were spent on The Best Deck, that is my humble name for our deck, haha!
Lots of grilling as well.
Delish burger on Sunday night on The Best Deck!
All of sudden Karolina’s boyfriend showed up in town as well.
He took a few days off before his summer gig starts. Austin will perform in a summer theater program (outdoor theater) in Boone, North Carolina.
Austin will leave sometime today. It's been fun having him here.
Lake Audubon so lovely on Saturday afternoon!
Oh, and I went to see my friend Sara’s son, Max, perform in the fantastic jazz-band he’s a member off (high school kids) on Sunday.
Kudos to the public schools where I live!
They put SUCH an effort in to the performing arts! I was blown away by this jazzband (big band). The music they play is right up my alley.
I got chills many times during the show.
I cannot wait to hear, and see, them perform again.
Kids, and one of their teachers, are jamming away at Jammin Java! And, I was BLOWN away!! National Jazz Workshop All Stars!
A lovely weekend indeed!
I hope you all had a fun one, too.
And, Swedes! Do have fun today! Tell me how you celebrate!!
Love our lakes where you can go fishing, boating and simply just enjoy them!
