Saturday and GOLD for Sweden

Today Sweden took our first Gold in skiing and the one who cemented the win was the wonderful Kalla. It was her third medal in these games. She has two silver and now the GOLD. Great job!
Danniel around 1 year old, with grandma and the last photo is with my uncle Lars-Erik, my cousin Kicki, my aunt Gertie and my grandpa's housekeeper Ester.

Another Gold but for me was 39 years ago when I gave birth to my first baby boy at 06.51AM - Danniel. Now he's not a baby anymore. I can't believe he will be 40 next year. But on the other hand I can't believe I will be 60 this year!
Where did time go? But when you think about it so much has happened during these years.

The day Danniel was born used to be the day when everyone had to leave the yearly tax return and luckily that year I had done that. Now it's very different and there are several tax return dates depending on if you are a person or have a business.

I'm very proud of him and he has since last year lost over 88 pounds! Great work.

What else? Oh yes, yesterday I met my good friend who is my opera friend. We have been going to the Royal Opera together now for over 7 years! That is incredible and we still have so much joy from it. Yesterday we started the evening by eating dinner at Bagdad Café situated in the Mediterranean museum very close to the Royal Opera house. It was very tasty and a wonderful envirement that I can truly recommend. I had a spinach and fetacheese pie with sallat. 

After that we went to see the opera Salome by Strauss. A completely sold out house watched and listened to a frightful story about Salome who in the end gets John the Baptist head but then she's killed too. A complete thriller but beautifully sung and the dresses were gorgeous.

Today is, as it has been this year almost every day, grey weather with sometimes snow, sometimes rain and even hail.
Tonight is also fullmoon and I have been feeling that all week.

I have trouble sleeping, my heart raises and I feel strange. Usually all this will go away now within a day or two. Strange but true.

On Wednesday we have a board meeting and on Thursday I will be secretary on the annual meeting with the Rheumatic assocation in my hometown. And then next Sunday we will all be going to Danniel for birthday dinner :-) 

I hope you all have a good weekend and week. Take care!
