The radio helps making it exiting.
Did You know that cross-country skiing actually is nasty exiting when listening to it on the radio and You can gear that Your country is placed third in the women’s relay, 26 seconds behind the leaders and then hear they the Swedish skier is coming closer and closer and that she pass the two in front of her just before finish line and actually wins the gold 🙂 We all know the Norwegian team was going to win this, well we knew they were going to win all cross-country skiing competitions in the Olympics and the only thing the other countries were going to compete about was the silver and bronze medals.
The Norwegian team have collapsed totally on both the male and female side. I wonder if this is the beginning of the end of an era? It’s so long since they didn’t win everything when it comes to skis so it sort of feels strange when they don’t 🙂 The Swedish female hockey team won against Finland’s team today as well and now they’ll meet the team from the USA in the semi finals. That’s a tough one, I think they’ve only won against USA one time before but anything can happen in the Olympics!
The storm has arrived and so far the winds are pretty strong but they’ll be worse they say. Sometimes it snows, sometimes it rains and every now and again nothing falls from the sky 🙂 But it’s so warm that there’s no risk the snow will stay, it doesn’t even seem to reach the ground because I can’t see any white spots anywhere on the fields or spruces. I’m not sure from what direction the wind comes but it doesn’t hit my cottage, so it’s quite calm in my garden. But I refuse to go out to the fields (to be honest I would rather stay indoors all day with this kind of weather 🙂 )
I’ll try to download Mahjong again today, I tried several time a week or so ago but nothing happened. I’m a bit tired of the different games of solitaire I have on the computer by now. I’m not a video game person because I just get to stressed while playing those games 🙂 but I do like those slower games like solitaire and mahjong.
It’s time to make a pot of tea and then I’ll stay close to the radio just in case any more swede will start in something. I know curling is one and it looks good for both the male and female teams. Curling is a tiny sport in Sweden, except when the Olympics are on 🙂 so it is strange that our teams belong to the best in the world.
Have a great day!
