Third weekend of Advent and, yes, quite Christmassy!! Not really in a writing mood though, so just a bit of a weekend summary… Saturday morning worked-out at Klubb Activ (always a tough workout – today’s remnants of yesterday’s workout are sore abs and arms!). Visited a couple markets in the afternoon with Lauren. Returned to the Street Market at Hornstull Strand (and managed to completely avoid Pierre). Then went to Skansen… whoever comes to visit me from here on out, we must go to Skansen!! It’s sort of like a Swedish version of Sturbridge Village, but especially charming right now because of all the Christmas markets and decorations within. We didn’t even make it all the way out to see the animals, for it was getting quite chilly and perhaps the place will be even more scenic with snow. Yesterday evening Erin and I went for pizza at out favorite place in Stockholm (eating the leftovers now), then hung out with some more girls from Fryshuset later that evening. Today I went to Immanuel International’s morning service, attended a Christmas party featuring soup (the mushroom was my favorite, but the potato and asparagus was tasty as well), then finished off today’s adventures with Catholic mass. Sorry I don’t feel like going into the details… especially of Skansen and today’s party… but I guess we will just do that in person sometime if you wish. Think I’m just a little bit tired from being all over the place the last few days. Going to settle down this evening and watch Notting Hill – it’s on TV and I’ve been wanting for a few weeks now to see this movie. Yay. I love it!! Can’t wait to come home. Bye.
