What a day!
We’re having a “too hot to wear a sweater but You do anyway when You’re out walking the dogs because You think it will be much colder in the shadows which it isn’t so You sweat like a pig and wish You had something to cool You down with” kind of day. It isn’t that hot to be honest,16C (60,8F) but since it has been rather chilly these last days it feels much warmer. But the morning was rather cold with frost and fog but since there was no wind blowing it felt kind of nice anyway.
The air is filled with bird songs, frog sounds and the buzzing from lots of bumblebees and other insects. So far no annoying ones but some beetles seems rather confused when flying, they sort of go here and there and suddenly they fly straight into my forehead 🙂 That doesn’t make them less confused but they just keep on flying and I hope they’ll reach what ever destination they want to reach 🙂 Butterflies always look very confused in their flying but they are pretty successful anyway and I’ve seen plenty of them today.
I’ve poured out extra soil in my vegetable garden and I’ve planted red onion sets, sown spinach seeds and that thistle with roots that can be used in the same way as asparagus. It sort of feel wrong sowing thistles when that is the only weed I really try to keep away from my garden 🙂 In between planting in the vegetable garden I’ve played with my dogs, sown annuals in pots so I can plant them outside later on and I’ve been sitting on my patio drinking tea. It is a rather nice day 🙂
I tend to avoid going anywhere during our three biggest holidays, traffic is insane and Easter is the worst of them all. So I won’t make any special food myself but of course there are traditions on what to eat at Easter but it cab vary quite a lot within this country. Eggs are a must of course and many have chicken for dinner as well. But more often we have an Easterbord, it’s much like a smorgasbord with lots of different things we can pick as we want from. No holiday without pickled Herring and this is something I can’t understand since it is disgusting 🙂 There’s no end on how many varieties there is of pickled Herring and they all taste just as bad.
Many have lamb and salmon seems to be a must now days too. There’s always meatballs and prince sausages for us that can’t stand pickled herring and some now days have an easter ham, just like the one we have at Christmas. We must not forget all things You can have on a sandwich tat belongs to that Easterbord. Liver pate, preferable two different ones, cheese of all kinds, spotted sausages and anything else You can think of that would go well on a sandwich 🙂 and never ever forget beetroot salad!
Personally I’ll make some pancakes instead 🙂 Well I have both prince sausages and meatballs but I feel pancakes is just what is needed a day like this, too bad I don’t have any ice cream at home, goes perfect together with pancakes 🙂
Happy Easter everyone!
