Summering in the city

The last few weeks in Stockholm have been, in a word, stunning.

Perfect cloudless blue skies, hot sunshine all day long, zero humidity (as usual), not a drop of rain or sign of gray, and the slightest breeze rustling through all the lush greenery (one definite plus to the rainiest May in decades).

With zero excuse to stay inside I've taken to heading into the city after finishing work loaded up with a blanket, a tablet filled with books, a bag-o-knitting, and some fizzy water. Heading to one of the parks (my current favorite is Vasapark in Vasastan) or to Hammarby Sjöstad, I spread my blue blanket out in the sunhine, slowly lower myself down with my growing tummy facing directly into the sun, and read, knit or doze listening to kids playing nearby until my phone rings.

R calls as he's leaving work and if he's up for it, he'll meet me in the park (sometimes stopping for a pizza on the way in for a picnic), or I'll start packing up and go out to hop a ride home with him.

Fingers crossed that we'll get a few more weeks (or at least days) of this before it's time to trade linen and sandals for wool and boots.
