Dog walks and ticks

A sunny weekend, and indeed a sporty weekend. I have muscle pain and should really do some stretching. This Corona year has been strange, but I have tried to continue with sports. Walking and cycling. I got a little tired of running and needed a break from it. This weekend Lady and Molly wanted to go for walks. And why not return to previous routines? I went running. And then walk in the forest with them. The ticks are present so they had to have the anti-tick medicine. I am happy and they are happy.

Eastern and Summertime

Ok, this writing seem to be up and going again. Great! Soon Eastern with its traditional celebration. Personally, I wish there will be sun so I can go for walks with Lady and Molly. It is very Corona virus intense right now, and it is very important to wash your hands and keep distance. Vaccination is ongoing and we are almost there. Only a few months to go. Found some comedy that I used to watch decades ago. Nice to revive memories. Here is “Allo’ allo'”.

Swedish kitchen

It feels like the third wave of COVID-19 is ongoing, and I stay at home in quarantine. Since it is Sathurday I did some cooking at home. It is a classical Swedish dish, but in a way very French. I have made this from scratch with fresh, raw ingredients. And having the right ingredients is very French. In high school we had something similar, not so tasty though. But this was very good and also a taste of summer. It takes some time to prepare, but worth doing. First time for me.

Almost and The Pink Panther

Tusse won! What? The song contest of course. Best wishes for Eurovision final in May. Yes, it is nice to have something else to think of than the Corona virus and mutations. This florist I had a chat with the other day made me think of months before the pandemic was a fact. This is almost forgotten, but can you imaginge – there were bombs! People were sleeping and at night time terrorist groups bombed in Stockholm and in other parts of Sweden. Like to prepare that something bad was going to happen. The florist was in a way right talking about the pandemic as wartime.

As usual, to cope with the surrealistic daily life, like bombs, I thought of Peter Sellers and The Pink Panther. Found this nice peace from decades ago.

Domestic policy and Eurovision

It is more time consuming to write in Swedish as well, but I hope you like this change! I do not use google translate. Day by day we are getting closer to – what should I say – liberty? A few days ago I bought some flowers to remind myself of spring and summer. Good to look forward. The florist actually talked like it is an ongoing war. Corona restrictions with limited number of customers etc. Being a political refugee must be terrible. I have been lucky and never lived in a war. Only news on tv.

Life is on hold and it is important to stay in a stable social bubble. A lot of people follow the Eurovision song contest. Good to have a rest from the virus and vaccines. I used to watch when Carola and Herreys competed, and I was a true supporter. Since I have friends who like watching Eurovision, I share Herreys.

By the way, any one who knows what has happened to Annie Löf? Has she become a maverick? She should talk to the former party leader Maud Olofsson for advice. Interesting to follow the domestic political development.
