Today I went over to Miriam’s and we had delicious home-made…well Miriam-made pancakes~! I’ve only had them with jam and whipped cream, but she made some veggie mixture for them and they were amazing~! It seemed very simple…so I think I’ll attempt to re-create the amazing pancaaakes~ I need to find out what kind of peas she used though, because they were the good kind that I like *-* No pea soup today though, but the pancakes were defnitely filling enough. We had some with raspberry jam at the end. Soooo good. I swear, I could live off of pancakes. When I get home I’m going to bring PANCAKES and fika as a verb with me. So friends, we shall fika and have pancakes on Thursdays!

Aside from this, I’ve done nothing else productive today.  Chatted a bit with Sanna, Fredrick and his friend Andrea in the kitchen. But other than that, it’s been pretty uneventful.  I’m ready for spring to come~ I walked home from Miriam’s place because it was “warm” (2 degrees haha…er…*googles* 35.6F) and mid-trip I remembered how cold it actually was because my ears and jaw started to hurt. Oh well, it was refreshing~ I can’t wait for spring!

A few days ago (the 2nd) my dad and sister went to my mom’s house and talked to me on Skype. That was nice, I haven’t “seen” them since August. My sister is definitely pregnant haha.  I really miss them, so I’m happy they went to mom’s t wish me a happy bday. That same day my bday package arrived, filled with amusing cards, Kelly’s yummy no-bake cookies and a cute super warm PIIIINK hat 8D I’m really happy I didn’t go out and buy one now haha~

Yesterday I went out with Miriam for lunch.  Because it was Thursday, I was able to get some PANCAKES and PEA SOUP!  Though, this time it was “green pea soup” which I must say doesn’t taste as good as the regular kind. Oh, well. Next time! But incase I didn’t say this before, Thursday is the day of pancakes and peasoup. I’m not sure why, but you can get it in a lot of places on Thursdays. I should take a picture of it next time, because the pancakes are more like crepes than fluffy Americany pancakes. They’re much better here. Yumyumyum~

After lunch we went to this little bookstore with Swedish children books. I was tempted to buy some, because…you know I could read some of that! They also had a bit of Pippi things, which makes sense…this IS Sweden after all. I remember watching Pippi when I was younger, it was such an entertaining show!

After the little bookstore Miriam showed me into a place called ‘Small’. It’s basically a store full of useless things. Sadly, I wanted to buy so much! There were heart shaped measuring cups and heartshaped baking things…I can’t cook! There’s really NO NEED for me to buy any of that, but I wanted to. There were other random cute things as well, so we figured it best to leave before we started shopping for tons of stuff we didn’t need.  I’ll probably go back…

After that we went to the hill infront of Carolina R. I was really happy it was a nice day.  It was “warm” and you could see the sky through the clouds. Not to mention, the sun wasn’t setting.  A few months prior the sun would go down at 2:30, now it’s going down around 5:30 like it should. Soon it’ll be going down at 9~10pm. Bahaha! That definitely makes up for the long winter nights.  Though, I’m going to feel like it’s winter when I get home, minus the heat, because the sun will feel like it’s setting earlier than it should. But, anyway we saw the poor snowmen dying because the warm weather isn’t friendly to snowmen!

After saying goodbye to Miriam I went to get my package from the post office~  I was so happy to open it at home, lots of candies and illy things like a pink tiara to go with my alien ears.  Really, I tuned 21? Not 6?  This morning I also saw that my friends made bday videos for me, my mom posted them on YouTube. It made me feel really happy and loved.  I love and miss you guys~ I can’t wait to see you all in June ❤
