Balaton Fauna

balaton toys Killer whales and lobsters down at Balaton, new and welcomed change to the lake fauna. What I really wanted to say is I’ve been busy with visitors and this is all I have time to show you right now. This picture’s got a lot of animals and should keep you busy/happy for at least a minute. If you’re bored I mean.

Food for Thought

chinese catOne of the most important thing in many people’s lives is food. I think about it all the time until I get hungry and then I eat. Several times a day. I’m lucky that way because I know there are some who can’t or are forced to eat out of the garbage, like this cat.

vietnamese restaurantBecause of being hungry all the time I was excited get some Vietnamese food at he Chinese market. It was closed today. All that pink sent some energy to my hungry body and we went searching for a Chinese restaurant instead. After all, we were in the Chinese market.

justfuckingrichDuring a heat wave when hungry one tends to hallucinate weird things. For a moment I saw myself being just fucking rich and waiting for someone coming in to my house smoking a cigarette. All I wanted was to use the fire distinguisher.

Back to reality. I’m not fucking rich, I’m not waiting for my house to be on fire, and I’m not hungry anymore. We found food (in a restaurant).

 

 

Freestyle Midsummer

blue ruffle lace dressMidsummer’s one of my favourite Swedish holidays and I to what I can to keep the tradition alive even if not in Sweden.

How?

One. Be outside, preferably where there’s grass. My friend’s had a birthday picnic in the park, so I didn’t tell them I was having my own midsummer party in my head on their picnic. That would’ve been rude. To be honest I don’t think anyone noticed my extra celebration.

Two. Food and drinks should be consumed outdoors even if it rains. It did rain on my way to the park, for the rest of the evening it was more or less a steam sauna. Maybe not so Swedish but hey it was close enough. 

Three. Pick flowers. I wore a vintage dress with flowers on and may friend’s daughter gave me a real one.

Four. Eat strawberries. Strawberry season’s over, a picture will do. Really big though.

Left out a few things like herring and snaps, add those to your party and you can get that real sick feeling the day after.

Tip of the Day

scarf If you don’t know what to do with your nails for the weekend. Here are my finger tips.nailsMake a French manicure with your favourite colour, or paint every nail in different shades. 

The possibilities are as endless just like a Swedish Midsummer night. Which is today btw.

Glad Midsommar!

Cotton Candy

nubu outsideWhen was the last time you had cotton candy? A week a go I would’ve not been able to answer that question. For a few years I’ve done all I can to avoid it, and embarrassed not to remember. Admitting it must’ve been more than 20 years ago made me feel old. Thanks to “Nude by Nubu” giving out free cotton candy on their shopping night my life has changed and I can have a full social life and join in on conversations about that fluffy sugar again.
