It snowed a few days ago and in my optimism I thought it would melt by the days end.

Well, can someone be so kind as to gently remind me I’m in Sweden now?

The beautiful snow didn’t melt as I had planned; in fact, it kept coming down. And now 4 days later it’s still here.

Unfortunately, we haven’t put our winter tires on the cars yet; and since it’s the law here, going too far away without them is a little risky. So, I’ve been holed up at home these last few days making every effort and excuse for a jaunt out of the house.

Oh, what have I been doing to keep busy? Rearranging the junk drawers, doing laundry, scanning cookbooks, listening to music, relaxing, changing all the linens, scrubbing the bathrooms, creating a photo book online, vacuuming, surfing the web, chatting with friends, dusting, shopping online, organizing my closet, trying new recipes, skimming through all the magazines my mom sent me from the states, and getting all snuggled up, grabbing my iPod and going for long reflective walks in the snow.

A few things I saw on my chilly 2 hour walk today (in no particular order):

  • Fresh moose tracks in the snow
  • 2 gorgeous lakes
  • A cow patty
  • Icicles dripping from the tree branches
  • Not another human soul

A few things I wish I had seen:

  • The running tracks/trails around Forest Park
  • Lake Oswego
  • A beef patty with all the fixings from Giant Burger
  • Drip coffee from Starbucks
  • Shiiki
