Extending the summer holiday with a little Stockholm downtime

August 11, 2015

in Stockholm

Katarina Bangata marknad Chanterelles were for sale at many of the booths at the Katarina Bangata market.

 

I returned home to Stockholm last week and since the weather is finally nice (by Stockholm standards at least), I decided to ease my transition back and worked at home for a few days before going into the office on Monday.

Thus I took the time to get work done, but also readjust to the time zone and finally enjoy some better weather here in Stockholm. After enduring the worst spring and summer weather we’ve had in quite a while, it’s felt like the right thing to do. So we’ve picnicked  out in the park behind our apartment, hung out with friends, bicycled, taken long walks, gone to the farmer’s market, cooked, baked a pie, read lots and in general just enjoyed myself.

 

crayfish Crayfish season has also begun and a kräftor booth had the right ingredients for a Stockholm party.

 

Katarina Bangata Just a few of my farmer’s market purchases.

 

pie It didn’t look great, but the blueberry pie I made with freely picked blueberries was fantastic.
