The Weekend

I have had a very nice weekend. Filled with summer, fun, friends and sun. That great weekend feeling took off Friday by me and C going down to one of nice places by the waterfront. This place is pretty new, posh and stylish. It has a nice atmosphere and great location just by the water. I have passed it before and thought that we should head down here and have a drink after work some day. We had no idea of the name of the place but it is Zee. I have read about this place in the paper and rememberd that it has gotten very good reviews for the food. Right now only the bar and bar menu were available, the restaurant opens again in August. We will go back then and try the food.


So we had a beer and a glas of wine and enjoyed the views and the nice summer weather and Friday feeling.They have these fake palm trees. I can´t make up my mind if I like them or if they are just kind of silly looking.



The last parts of Hammarby Sjöstad are still under construction but are to be completed by next year. This weekend the guy we are renting from came by to pick up some of his mail and to talk to us. He is in the states doing a reserch project. We feel very lucky and very grateful to be able to rent his apartment while he is away. However, we were both a little nervous as we had no idea if he would let us know that he had changed his plans and wanted to move back for some reason. We talked and had some coffee and it turns out we can stay a while longer. We could let out a sigh of relief. It was the first time that I met him by the way. He was super nice. We have met his girlfriend more frequently as she has been in Sweden more often and has come by to pick up mail and so on. We are very happy we don´t need to make any moving plans for now.


Yesterday I met up with friends at L´s place where we have our stuff in her basement. My other friend A that lives in San Fransisco is here and is soon heading back so we had a great girls evening trying to catch up on as much as possible. Five girls and a lot of talking. The evening passed way too fast anyway.
I am really glad I got to meet A before she left for the US again.


That great weekend feeling started already on Thursday really as me and C met up with L and her R and had dinner at this new Indian restaurant that was great. I like Indian food but most Indian restaurants are more or less the same and therefore this place was a very nice surprise. It was much more of a new modern indian dishes and flavors. Everything we had was really good. Both me an C said we would love to go back here again.

Me and C also went out on a short run Sunday morning. I was not really up for it as we headed out but when we got back it felt like the best possible way to start the day.

Today it is Monday and the day has started with rain. I am not thrilled about biking to work in the rain but sometimes you just got to do it. I bought a new rain jacket this weekend as well. The one I had just would not transport the moisture out so I was totally soaked inside and out when I used it last week. The new one is much much better. I can open it up along the sides and under the arms so it dosen´t get so warm. I am very pleased with it.

Vilken härlig helg ni hade! Här var det tvärtom, grått och blåsigt hela helgen men idag skiner solen! Jag hoppas att vädret håller i sig eftersom vi ju får både besök från Sverige och från Spanien i veckan, för min egen del kvittar det ju egentligen vad det är för väder utanför fönstret ;-)
Vad bra att du fått tag på en bra regnjacka, det borde jag också skaffa - förhoppningsvis blir det många promenader i höst efter att ha varit instängd hela sommaren..
KRAM!

Idag har det varit lite regnigt och grått men det är väl kanske det vädret du har haft som drar vidare. Jag tycker ändå att det har varit en bra sommar med omväxlande väder och rätt schysst väder i hela taget sett. Någon dag med regn gör mig inget. Imorgon ska det bli fint här också. Även om du inte kan gå ut just nu så tror jag ändå att vädret påverkar en hel del då det gäller stämning och humör. Är det fint ute blir jag automatiskt gladare och piggare. Men jag tror jag påverkas mycket av väder i allmänhet. Jag tror det blir mysigt och kul med besök. Det förstår jag att du ser fram emot mycket.
Kram!

Ja det ar en helt annan tofu en san jag har sett forut. Den ser exakt ut som yoghurt och i smoothien smakar supergott. Den blir inte sadar sur som med turkisk yoghurt. Plus att det ar nyttigare! Nice =)

Desiree said...

Eleonor, tack för tipset jag får se om jag kan hitta den här. Jag vet att jag har sett den i USA men inte vetat att man kunde använda den till smoothies då. Hoppas kunna hitta här också.
Kul att kunna snappa upp nya tips och tricks om sådant som är gott och nyttigt.
Kram!

På det första fotona ser det nästan ut som om ni är utomlands!

Anne-Marie said...

Roligt när man har en fylld, intensiv och rolig helg! Vad skönt att ni inte behöver flytta. Förstår att ni kunde dra en suck av lättnad. Kramar!

Marie said...

Vad härligt ni verkar ha det!

Letar ni hus eller lägenhet eller är ni nöjda där ni bor?

Desiree said...

Linnea, ha ha kanske gör palmerna mer effekt än vad man tror. Det var en toppenkväll, 25 grader i luften en mild bris, fredag och ett glas vin. Så skönt. :-)
Kram!

Marie, just nu är vi faktiskt nöjda där vi bor. Vi har ännu inte känt något sug efter att kolla på något annat.
Kram!

Anne-Marie, känns som man får ut mer av sommaren med sådana här helger.
Kram!

Vilken härlig helg, blir glad bara av att läsa om den. Nice att börja weekendkänslan redan på torsdag :)

Och vilken tur att ni kan stanna i lägenheten! Nu kan ni koppla bort det och fortsätta njuta av sommaren. Snart väntar er Frankrikeresa!

Kram!
