It is beautiful now when it is not raining.Mornings are cool and chilly, the air is crisp and you get that sense of fall just being around the corner. The air is fresh. I do not miss the humidity at all that we had in Alabama. The muggy weather and feeling sticky as soon as you took a step outside. Here the apples are ripe now in peoples yards. There are so many different kinds of apples. My parents also have apple trees in their yard. They have two different kinds but both are classified as summer kinds. Then there are fall apples as well as winter apples. It is wonderful to stand under my father’s apple trees. I also took some more pictures from my parents yard with many different kinds of flowers in bloom. August is a wonderful month with summer still lingering but fall just around the corner. I hope September will be nice and full of crispy but clear days with blue sky and sunshine. That kind of fall weather is my favorite.
Poor C caught a cold. I hope I won’t catch it and that he is feeling better soon. Now we have moved inte C’s aunts condo in the city. So now we are practicing compact livning. This is a small apartment of about 45 square meters or 450 square feet. It is tiny! It has one bedroom and one livning/diningroom and a kitchen. There is a table in the livningroom so it is also here that we sit to eat. Well it has all we need. We arrived with our suitcases and some more stuff that we got. We also had to go grocery shopping before we arrived here. Kind of major and basic grocery shopping when you have to start out with everything as you have nothing, nothing in the pantry, no cleaning supplies ect. Well I just got us what we will need for the next two weeks as we are soon moving again and we don’t want to move more than we have to. Moving is exhausting enough as it is on it’s own.
We went over to my parents place Sunday and had crawfish the Swedish way (not spicy as the Louisiana crawfish but equally good in their own way). We took the train back into the city in the evening. When we reached the Central Station and I looked at the people rushing to their destinations I could not help myself from laughing out loud. The difference was so stunning between Alabama and Stockholm. Here people walk fast. In Alabama people walk slowly all the time. I felt like a freak there rushing around in my pace. In Alabama people seem to just have all the time in the world all the time. Here in Stockholm everyone walks fast that is just it.I
