Yes, 39!
That's how old I am already!
It's really strange how the world I live in has changed in those 39 years.
How I have changed and have grown since that 10th of Dec. 1970.

What a journey it has been, with lots of UPS and DOWNS, with STAGNATION and GROWTH, with all those wonderful things that make our time here on earth so special and worth experiencing.


We had invited a few friends over yesterday, had a good time eating, chatting, laughing AND I got to unpack a couple of cool gifts.


I was in school in the morning and when I came home, Hasi had already decorated the dining room.

It was nice to come home to a fine cup of coffee and presents on the table.
So I started to unpack my first round of gifts before we prepared the Apfelstrudel and snacks for our guests, which arrived too soon! The Apfelstrudel wasn't even in the oven yet (it's best when it comes fresh out of the oven!), but I didn't panic and finished what I had to finish. Hasi entertained the guests and offered them the first round of coffee.

Our last guest arrived at 3, perfect in time for a warm Strudel with Vanillasauce...

Then I got to unpack my second round of gifts!
All nice things! :)

Creams, Honey, Chocolate, a handcrafted star and "tomten" from Moa, iPhone accessories and a little helikopter for indoor flying!!

Just a little while ago we were joking around with friends of ours about what we would do if we had a lot of money...
I said I would buy a helicopter right away and we found out that our friends husband P. had the same dream...
And since neither of us can afford a real one our friends thought it would be fun to get me a little one for my birthday!
So cool!!!

Of course I had to try it out right away and it is a really cool little gadget, flying it is fun.
Cleo is a little afraid of it though, Mika on the other hand thinks it is something he has to practice his hunting skills with! *lol*

Well, we had a great afternoon and after cleaning up after the party, we decided to watch a DVD that we had gotten from our friends a little while ago. They were absolutely excited about it and thought it was worth seeing.
The movie is called "Peaceful Warrior" and featuring Nick Nolte.
Here's the link to the homepage of the movie in case you are interested.

It's now a quarter past 3pm and time to get to the shop for some Milk and Eggs. It's already getting kinda dark and raining some.
We'll be off to Växjö airport later to pick up Ingrid's sister. She's coming for a short visit.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!!!
