A sunny Saturday naturally meant a walk into town for some coffee and cake. My go-to when it comes to coffee is almost always chai lattes. I love the spicy taste! And since I’m a cake lover, I ordered this amazingness. It was a strawberry mousse pannacotta, and it was truly amazing. After that we went to a sports bar to watch a hockey game and have a few beers. We ended up staying there for 4 hours and then going to the next place to play some pool. This is what’s so great about sunny weekends, they always inspire spontaneity.
Yesterday was as usual circus time. We took out the trapeze and silks this time. I love the silk, but since I have no upper body strength I usually get super tired if I go at it for a bit. Luckily the kids have more strength and energy. Or maybe just persistence. I don’t know, but it was a good lesson.
Today I’ve been writing an essay all day, I still have one more to write and it was supposed to be done today… Oh well, it’ll have to be a day late this time. Tomorrow I have to walk into town and take a test. It’s going to be awful, but I hope at least the weather will be good so that I don’t have to walk in snow or rain… That would suck even more.
One thing that keeps surprising me is how fast time flies the older you get. I mean the weeks are really just getting shorter and shorter…. It’s already March, and I feel like I haven’t really accomplished anything so far this year. It’s probably not that bad, but it feels like if it keeps going at this rate it’ll be summer tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow will be 2019. Slow down life! I can’t keep up. Other than that life is actually pretty good at the moment. I have a lot of balls in the air, but somehow still getting shit done. I have been thinking about dyeing my hair soon… I’m really sick of my hair.
Man it is late, time for bed for this grandma!
Friday and payday! Always my favorite kind of day. My boss told me that I could buy some clothes for work, so I got these. I’ve been looking for white adidas shoes, finally found a pair and they were on sale too. Sometimes life works out.
Yesterday we spent a late valentines day at Ästad Vingård. It was perfect, an outdoor spa with hot tubs and saunas. One of the saunas was under water, it was so cool! They had fish in the pond so while you were relaxing in the sauna you could watch them swim by. By far the coolest sauna I’ve been in!
Scrambled eggs with fried mushrooms and baked tomatoes. Crazy delishious!
2 dl cream
1/2 dl milk
salt & pepper
8 tomatoes (or however many you need)
1 tbs butter for frying
1 tbs parsley
Preheat your oven to 250°C.
Put your tomatoes on a tray and bake for about 25 min, or until skin starts to crack. Chop up your mushrooms and fry in butter until golden. Add salt, pepper and parsley. Mix the ingredients for the eggs and cook over medium heat. Done!
Today is a good day. Ordinarily fridays are my favorite days anyways, but days like this I’m reminded why. It’s sunny outside. I got two packages in the mail. I got a B in my math final. For the first time during this study period I’m actually ahead in my studying. I feel good! I quit my job on monday (not the circus job, the one in elderly care) and it feels like such a relief. I’ve been stressing over that job for months now. Since I’m a student and I took out student loans, I can only earn a certain amount, and that meant I could only work like 2 days a week, which was I guess starting to be a problem for them too, and it was a problem for me since I had to say no if they called and someone was sick. So yeah. It feels better this way. I have more time to focus on studying and sending out applications for acting jobs. I really need to just get in there. Apply, get a few rejections, and really just get my hands dirty. My hope is to one day be as amazing an actor as Meryl Streep or Margot Robbie. I’m re-watching Transformers right now since I just wanted to stare at Megan Fox a bit (my #1 girl crush, always will be). After this I’m going to watch I, Tonya, and then I really should get going with my school work I guess. Never too early to start!
Have a great weekend everybody!
