Happy about: A loooot of things!! Just to mention a few, we had friends here for the weekend which was great fun! We are also making some really exciting holiday plans for end March (still to be confirmed).
Disappointed about: Nothing......actually....
Looking forward to: Tomorrow morning I am traveling to Poland for business and in the evening I will meet up with two of my friends (and former colleagues) and I have really missed them =) On Friday I will go home to Sweden for a long weekend to celebrate my dad's marriage and his 60th birthday. Am really looking forward to see my friends and family again!!! It's been waaaaaay too long.....
Hoping: That I will have enough energy to go for a run before it gets dark today. I feel that I should go, but struggle a bit with the motivation to go. He he!
Thinking about: A friend whose birthday is next week and I'm wondering what to get her and WHEN as I don't have much time. Hmmmm.......
Smiling about: Some recent touching phone calls with friends and family.
Wishing: That I didn't have to spend parts of the evening packing....but oh well...
Sad about: Having to get up so ridiculously early for the traveling in the next two days! I am really not a morning person ;)
Wanting: To buy so much stuff when I go home to Sweden!! Mainly food.... Gosh I miss the food back home....the only sad thing is that most of the things I miss need to be refrigerated. Does anyone have any tricks on how to travel with stuff that needs to stay cold?
....and here some shots to summarize the weekend:
|Our two guests and Chris admiring the spectacular view of the Alps|
|We went to Vallee de Joux on Saturday.....|
|...where the lake had frozen and it was an amazing amount of people skating, walking, eating and playing on the ice.|
|It was an amazingly beautiful day! Only -1 degrees and sunshine =)|
|Fun in the sun|
|Snowfights galore ;)|
|....and yes, he probably deserved this revenge snow-kick ;))|
|.....and an abundance of beautiful sceneries!!|
|I love having guests so I can experiment in the kitchen. This was the starter I made: |
Butter seared Scallops on a Blood Orange Salsa bed
|For main course: Couscous Paella|
|The dessert was certainly not an experiment, but more a safe card ;)) |
Swiss Meringue served with Creme Brulee flavored ice cream and Whipped Cream
