Hi.

03/03/2014

Yup, still here. Sorry for being a lousy poster…starting right after Christmas  we enjoyed a week, which covered New Years Eve, in San Martino di Castrozza, in the Dolomites of the Italian Alps. Then I will head right into February, and bring us up to date…..

February

Walking, shopping in Gamla Stan one afternoon. Cold and a bit snowy.

Semla. Evil things. First one since living here. I was not too impressed, but I didn't love kanelbulle either till a year later. Semla is a not too sweet roll, filled with whipped cream and marzipan. It will add an extra cheek to your cheek.

Semla. Evil things. First one since living here. I was not too impressed, but I didn’t love kanelbulle either till a year later. Apparently the correct way to eat it is in a bowl of warm milk, which I might try in another decade. Semla is a not too sweet roll, filled with whipped cream and marzipan. It will add an extra cheek to your cheek. Eat with caution.

Not enough walks, but a really nice walk with friend to Skeppsholmen. This water should be iced over.

George and Maddy are returning from taking the pendaltåg to Norrviken to visit a colleague of Gregs and spend time with his dog. I think those two had a nice adventure!

So there…..today I sit and enjoy a quiet morning, sharing our last few months. The kids are all back to school after a very quiet February Vacation. Let’s see what March brings, shall we. Can’t promise when I will share it with you though, lol. Thinking of you all!! love, Rebecca

    A belated reply!  Love all your messages and photos!  What a wonderful experience for all of you.  I hope that some day after you return to the states that we’ll be able to have a visit. Love to all, Liz
