Summer in the city

Published 07/09/2012 by MoonieZ

Looking out the office window at the lake below. Watching the beach being full of people ready to go swimming or just enjoy the sun. So close and yet so far away.

On a day like today, having to stay inside is not much fun. Trying to get any work done is almost impossible. Not only because of the weather or the view but also because it is Monday and nothing really ever gets done on a Monday. At least not here. At least not right now.

Maybe after lunch.

Weekend? Yes it was ok. I didn’t do much, only relaxed and watched some TV.  Spent a lot of time on the back porch. Played a game online for a while but then started to wonder why I had spent so much time on in when I really didn’t like it that much. Guess I had nothing better to do.

Weather was mostly cloudy this weekend but there wasn’t much rain. Other parts of Sweden got so much rain that they call it a natural disaster. Lots of flooded roads, streams and buildings in that area. I’m glad it didn’t happen where I live.

After having had two minor floodings in my home, I know how much work it takes to restore everything. Not to mention how much it costs. The worst part is the human suffering though. Flooding causes a lot of stress and grief when homes are ruined or damaged.

I’m still thinking about that update about food I’m going to write for this blog. Just haven’t got it the way I want it yet. Will let it be for a while then get back at it.

This weekend cooking was kept to a minimum. One day was vegetable soup for lunch and a homemade hamburger from the grill for dinner. The other day dinner was grilled sausage, potato salad and some coleslaw.

The first strawberries from the garden were ready, and of course they tasted divine.

What else? I can’t think of anything more to report.
