Just a few shots of the looooooong weekend so far —
We went for a few bike rides, including one along the coast of Lidingo — that turned into a hike with our bikes on our backs at some points!
We bought a bed for our new apartment. It’s name is Elton. No really, that’s the model name. No photos yet, but to be delivered sometime around July 4 — I’ll describe the bed-buying process then.
I made chocolate chip cookies, from the contraband Ghiradelli chocolate chips and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate is a rarity here in Sweden!) that my mom brought with her. We ate nearly all of them at two back-to-back BBQs with friends.
We rented a canoe for a morning paddle on the canal that runs through the Djurgarden.
And yesterday, I went wandering by bike across downtown, onto Gamla Stan, and over to Myrorna, in search of goodies… then back home to collect Matt for fika in the Djurgarden.
The weather for most of these excursions was exceedingly hot — for Stockholm, that is! Mid-20s Celsius (solid 70s Farenheit), sunny, breezy but hot… I felt almost sunburned yesterday. And then today, back to 12-14°C. Crazy! It’s still sunny though, and tomorrow will be warm again for Sweden’s national day.
