On TV right now - an outdoor concert live from Helsinki with the winners of the Eurovision Song Contest, Lordi. Now I know what they did with all the leftover orch costumes from the Lord of the Rings movie. At least some of them were sold to this bizarre Finnish rock band! Also they resembles the rubber dinosaurs my brother collected when he was little. But where did they get that mummy on a stick they are waving?
Lazy thoughts from the couch! We are enjoying a lovely long weekend, starting yesterday on Thursday. Today it feels like Saturday but it is Friday. Earlier it felt like a Sunday but it wasn´t. It is raining but I am enjoying myself by planning for the balcony garden and of course cooking. And we are also planning our coming holiday in Latvia and Estonia. July 7th we are leaving for Riga, and then driving over the islands Saaremaa and Hiumaa to Estonia. So now we have lots to do booking ferry tickets and accomodation...
This post is to announce an important thing: I have had matje herring for the first time this year. Ask any Swede (almost) and the thought of matje herring with new potatoes and sourcream, gräddfil brings tears in their eyes. Not without reason, it is extremely tasty! Other tasty things this weekend: kroppkakor, (like gnocchi balls with filling of ham and onion) made by my dear man yesterday, roasted asparagus with Västerbotten cheese and a lovely sweet and sour beef and dill casserole I am cooking tomorrow.
Ah, sorry for this blah blah posting - just felt like writing something!
