What Easter Bunnies do

Happy Easter!
Even though I have spent the last week in bed, sick, I am feeling better and even going to work today. Hopefully that won't prevent me from geting all well, and be ready for my classes to start tuesday. 
I've had a wonderful easter with family and friends. Friday, Veronica and Philip came over and played Wallstreet with us, as well as had lunch and caught up on our lives. 
Friday night we got together at my parents and painted eggs!
And Saturday grandma and Helmut came over and we had easter lunch, and did the family's annual Egg Rolling Competition! Selma participated, of course. 

Turn the pages over

When one finally thought spring was coming around, and the air was clear and the sun was bright enough to spread some warmth, I wake up to snow. All day today those evil flakes have been falling. We're more than halfway through March and I feel less envigorated and enthusiastic for spring when I can't even see the ground. 
Today I finally got ahold of my last book for the pre-law course I'm taking, starting April 2nd. I'm excited yet scared, because for this 2 month course I have more litterature to read than for my entire senior year (at least it feels like it). And the book "Swedish Law" is not any less intimidating, being thicker than THREE of my largest Harry Potter books put together! Crazy... 
It's been a stressful weekend, but when is it not nowadays.. Extra work, to ensure that I can be off for Easter Eve, as well as dance classes and the annual easter loppis that the sea scouts arrange. Sunday it was so nice and warm outside that Trevor and I went and bought ice cream. Looking out the window today I can only sigh at the thought of ice cream.
But at least I have had this nice day to do all the things I never have time for, like blogging. Hope someone read it. Over and out. 

Waiting for the buds of spring

I think I can surely assume that it warms everyone's heart to see the snow finally beginning to melt away and the ground peeking out. At least it makes me really happy to know that spring just might be around the corner, though it is not yet here. Nothing is green and there is still ice covering the streets, making them a dangerous hazard to all us uncareful pedestrians. 
The best part of all is that the sun is up when I leave for work in the early morning. The worst part is that "up with the sun" can no longer justify a late morning and sleeping in. It is in any case nice to wake up on this one day that I have off work after working 7 days straight, with 7 workdays ahead of me, and realise it's late enough that the sun is breaking through the bedroom window and telling me it's time to get up.
I am counting down to many exciting things right now. In three weeks easter will surely bring some green and maybe even some spring flowers. Three weeks away is also the beginning of my course in Law Overviewing, which will help me decide if Law is the major I want to go for in college in the fall. Three weeks is also the time until April Fools, which is always a positive thing to look forward to. Basically, I can take three weeks of this grey half-spring weather with a hint of ice, because after that I am sure even spring can't wait any longer!

Frozen berries in the smoothie

Almost a month, crazy how time flies when one has no time at all. Thanks Elsa for reminding me to blog some :)
Lots of things have happened, and really nothing at the same time. Just found out yesterday that my beloved Soso will be moving to Sweden in the end of May! That's way exciting news, wasn't expecting her until end of summer. She also got a job and since I know she reads this blog sometimes - Congrats!
So, a little update on the winter in this cold, northern land...
Grövelsjön, norwegian border
I have been on sports break, though I am not sure it's still called a break if it's just be taking time off of work. However, I packed away my three jobs for a week and went up north with the family, including Trevor. Spent a week in "our" old cabins up in Grövelsjön, where I have gone for sportsbreak basically every year for my whole life. It was good to be back and I loved showing Trevor all the fun we have up there. Cross country skiing, slalom, sledding, going shopping with "the kick", millions of stars at night and jumping in the snow after a sauna. I'm not sure he appreciated the långfil, but the rest seemed to be as much of an adventure for him as it was for me. 
We be cold and snowy :D
