About the changing world all around us

As many of you may already know our little summer home in Sweden is now overflowing with bloggers. My son just appeared and shook his head in disbelief. “You have got one more in the blogging world, how does it feels boys?”

Cute huh? How does it feel boys, having a rockin girl blogger in the house. Like everything else I have to make my place in the blogging family. These guys are pretty crazy, you know. And they don’t mean to take over the spotlight but they just get carried away.  So when you go in to the boys blogs, remember that its us girls holdling the cameras 😉

Tor and Anna arrived this evening around five pm with their car full of goodies for us and big heavy suitcases to drag up the stairs. We have had a charming evening sitting out on the balcony most of the time. Talking about everything from our families, to the origin for words, to the local wildlife, and of course lots and lots of blog talking. I remember definitely hearing a bit about Mrs. Lifecruiser, Claudie, Mother of Inventions, Lime, Eastcoast Life, Dackelprincess, ExpatTravler & Gattina just to mention a few!!  So ladies and gentlemen you are actually part of our lives and something that we talk about daily, and thats the Gods honest truth, you wouldn’t believe how much Renny and I talk about what you all are doing or have said, or have posted on. There is a lot of excitement talking about a bloggers meet at Claudie’s place next summer.

To welcome our guests we served Canadian Lobster, and Norwegian shrimp, already boiled and served cold in the Norwegian way. Here we often eat both lobster and shrimp on white bread with mayonaise, or butter, and a little lemon juice on top. We normally have ‘peel and eat shrimp’. While messy the taste and consistancy is superiour to ready peeled shrimp. Tor and Anna brought some lovely white wine and we enjoyed our dinner with lots of laughs and good conversation.

We had our favorite espresso out on the balcony with fresh cinnamon buns, and a lovely sunset. I hope you all will follow along for this little weekend adventure. Tomorrow we will be taking our guests out to Torsö, and using the cable ferry to come over to the little nature reserve island of Brömö. Stay tuned!! Follow our adventures at RennyBA’s Terella, and TorAa Mirror! As well as here of course!!
