The sun has been shining this weekend over Stockholm so it's been nice here too. There is still plenty of snow but I am happy as long as the temperature is above freezing because that means that the snow is slowly melting away. Slowly it is getting more spring like but the emphasis is still on slowly. I took a nice walk yesterday just enjoying the sunshine. For the first time one can actually feel warmth from the rays of sun. That just feels soooo nice!
A small reminder that we do live very close to the waterfront. I like that. Even if it still not the ocean it is so nice and pretty to have this waterfront canal.
Just enjoying the sunlight and the reflections of the sun rays. Friday morning believe it or not I was for the first time woken up by a bird singing. Even if it did disturb my sleep it was something very positive to be disturbed in this way. I saw lots of seagulls flying around over the water as I was out on my walk.
I took the subway into the city. I love this part of the ride between Skanstull and Gullmarsplan as you leave the tunnels and enter the open. The views are often really nice as you cross the bridge. Unfortunately the windows of the subway train were quite diry so the picture is not that great. Often I have seen the most spectacular colors on the sky as the sun is coming up or going down on my way to work. I several times wished that I had had my camera with me. But taking pictures from here is not so easy even if I had had the camera with me. The subway is usually so packed with people when I travel to and from work it would have been impossible to take any pictures. Many times the view is blocked by another train passing by in the other direction as well.
I passed by this coffee shop on my way home. After a long, cold, dark winter the Swedes including myself are just starved for sunlight. As soon as there is even a hint of sun people make sure that they get some of it. So here they had already put out the furniture so people could sit outside and enjoy both their coffee and the sun.
As I have mentioned before living here in Hammarbysjostad close to the ski slope often gives me the feeling of living at a ski resort of some kind. I think that is really nice. Here this place announced After Ski get together and pub. It feel kind of cool to see people walking around with ski gear on.
