It’s been a fun weekend and for the first time in weeks the weather’s been sunny. Much of Sweden has gone directly from meteorological autumn to meteorological spring without any intervening winter, and the country’s highest January temperature ever was measured: 12.5 C. Scary. But it’s been overcast. This was more fun.
- Went to Linda Qviström’s thesis presentation (Medieval windows and indoor lighting, super solid work), chatted with colleagues.
- Played boardgames: No thanks (short) and Shogun (long).
- Went hiking with friends and their kids in the woods south of the mill ruins at Tyresö Nyfors.
- Took a long hike or walk in the woods and fine housing area between our place and Solsidan commuter train station.
- Had a piece of decadent chocolate-peanut cheesecake at the Kladdkakan Café in the Old Town.
- Checked out the Jewish Museum, whose exhibition about Jewish history in Sweden firmly places its subject matter in relation to current immigration debate. I found the collection of branded wooden coat hangers from little post-war Jewish tailor businesses around Sweden quite striking.
Dear Reader, what did you do for fun this weekend?
