Saturday

I haven't really had anything to post about the past few days. I have just been working and studying my swedish. Today seems to actually be really nice outside for once. The winter chill seemed to wear off for today at least, so we went for a walk with our dog Tyson this morning. Even though it is actually only fall, I guess I need to accustom myself with the new seasons here in Sweden.

I have almost marked my first year here. It's comming soon on December the 10th.

I was also discussing with my husband how I am going to manage Thanksgiving here in Sweden, seeing as it is an American holiday. It can be done, but not with a turkey as big as we have in the USA, but thats ok. I will just make a few small ones with all the fixings etc. Though getting some of the ingredients that I need may prove to be a small challenge but I am up for it. I just have to do some research and maybe pay a little more for the right products that are, I know, imported.
Today is a really good lazy day. I laid on the couch and read my book from my favourite author Anita Shreve. And of course it made me sleepy as reading always does. I caught myself a few times waking up with my mouth wide open. Paul gave me a comment saying he should of taken a picture of me sleeping close-up like I did to him once..lol

He is the one napping now..Oh as for the book, I was excited to see I can get my books in english here. I really only have 3 favourite authors, Nora Roberts, Anita Shreve and Barbara Delinsky. Of course I like Anne Rice too but she is kind of second hand for me.

Maja said something to me in my previous post about the swedish chef on the Muppets...which reminded me of something. I love the muppets chef!!!! In fact last month we watched him on YouTube...I cracked up laughing. We watched a lot of episodes. I love when he says 'Mork Mork' in the beginning before he throws his utensils. I told my one co-worker at the restaurant about him, so now he always says 'mork mork' because he is a swedish chef..lol...considering I am a chef as well, and in Sweden, I wonder if I have the rights to use it too?..kidding!


I am really hungry now so I think I am going to see what I can stir up..I'm really hungry for cookies for some reason.
