Last day of July

Yes, it's the last day of July and it's high summer. Yesterday we had quite a lot of rain and it was the first time it rained here at home since I can't remember. It was really needed. The grass haven't been green in a long time. It's yellow because it's so dry. The leaves of the trees especially the birches are getting all yellow because of the drought and this is not usual in Sweden.

I started working again on Monday after 3 weeks holiday. It was hard getting up at 4.45AM again but I managed. So I worked Monday-Tuesday. Today I'm off work because I will be working tomorrow. It's August 1 and I have to do invoicing.

Today I'm off to the hairdresser. My hair tends to grow more in the summer. Maybe it's the same for you? After that I have to go to the bank to pay my Mom's last bills. It's kind of hard because here in Sweden most banks don't have money (!!) So you have to find that special bank that is like a bank is supposed to be! Aren't bank supposed to handle money?

Anyway that's my plans for today. What's yours?

On Saturday we are going to Gävle to celebrate Hasse's oldest son and his fiancée who both turns 50 so we are invited to a 100-year party :-)
Their actual birthdays aren't until December but it's easier to invite when it's summer and you can be outside.
The same day it's a rock festival here in Väsby where bands like H.E.A.T, Dynazty and many many more perform. I would have love to be here for that but obviously can't.
There are a lot of friends from England and other countries coming for this event and I'm so sorry I won't be able to meet them :-(

I don't write often about it but I read a lot!! This summer, since June, I think I have read 10 or more books. I have a habit to read whenever or where ever I am. I can't go to sleep without reading. I read when I cook, when I eat, when I'm in the bathroom. And I have been doing this since I was a child.
Have a great day everyone!
