Maybe you do remember how I complained about the spinach when we first had moved back. The quality was very poor. It was all wet and also full of sand grains and I really missed the great spinach I had at Costco. The quality of spinach has greatly improved in the last months. ICA started selling these spinach bags of 200 grams that is their big pack kind. It is no longer soaking wet and also it has been pre-washed which I like, so no more sand grains that you carefully have to rinse away first. I am glad that this happed pretty soon after we moved back. I still have kept my large plastic container from Costco and every week I refill it with two of these spinach bags from ICA. It actually fits two of these bags exactly.
Magazines are much more expensive here. I only subscribe to one cooking magazine called "Laga Latt". I like it a lot and got the subscription from my mother as a Christmas gift. A very nice Christmas gift that lasts throughout the year. I think the pretty pink covers gave them a nice spring look that made me buy them.
However, I was thrilled to find some of my favorite American magazines the when I went to one of those magazine shops that sells all kinds of imported ones that you don't find in regular stores. Even if they had increased the price more than the double amount I still decided on getting them. It is kind of funny how when you are in the US one of the things you really long for are Swedish magazines and now that I am here the US magazines are the special ones.
I used to subscribe to several magazines in the US as Simple Living and Southern Living. Subscriptions were much cheaper than buying each issue at the store and buying them at the store was not exactly expensive either. But I only found them at one particular place so far so I have to go there every once in a while to enjoy them.
These tulips are time to exchange for new ones but I still love when they are getting old and start to dry up. It is so beautiful when they open up in this way. I can find them pretty even if they are wilting and drying up like these ones. Still it is time for a bunch of new and fresh ones very soon. I am feeling kind of tired today so I will have to make sure I go to bed early tonight. I hope I am not coming down with a cold or something. C had sort of a sore throat yesterday. Well I hope a good nights sleep will do me good.
