Helps you to remember what you have done on the weekend of June 11. You never know if you need an alibi ! If you participate please put the little logo on the top of your post and leave your link.

This weekend was "dedicated" to my forthcoming trip to Istambul on Wednesday where I will visit the city together with my friend and neighbor Dominique. This meant to check my wardrobe and select the clothes I want to take along. Of course I had to do some laundry too.

I noticed that I had nothing to wear although my wardrobe is so full as a drunken sailor, but sometimes I feel like a bird who needs new feathers. I bought some new feathers in form of 2 nice T-shirts and blouses. Just right for warm weather sightseeings.

In the evening Dominique came over and we discussed the last details of our trip and then together with Mr. G. we watched the British TV series "Morse" and admired Oxford.

On Sunday morning I went to a local market in the next little town and bought roasted chicken for tonight. The rest of the day I spent to update my little notebook which I want to take along on my trip to Istambul, so that I can post from the Hotel.

Since a week the temperature has dropped from 25 ° (77 F)and more to not even the half. We warmed ourselves up with the open fire, but it will get even more cooler so I think we have to put the heating on again, now that we are going towards summer and of course it also rains after almost two months of sunshine and dry weather.

You are indeed a travelling lady.
But everything is so close in Europe.
We were watching documentaries and learning about globalization and how dangerous it is becoming.

Weird weather isn't it? I am not a big fan of the extreme heat that we get here but this year the nights are still so cool that I am still using a thick blanket.

Isn't it typical, as soon as the school ends, the wonderful weather ends too! Always the same every year here in Sweden.
