Richness comes in various shapes; proudness of my kids, being able to afford good quality of food, some new yards of fabrics and – books. I just love them and last week my order from C&Ts latest sale arrived and this time I was happy with the most.
And on Saturday I picked up my latest order from Amazon UK. Even though they dropped the free shipping to Sweden, they are still affordable. Now this might sound like bragging, but novels in English last a bit longer than those in Swedish, no matter how thick they are. Finished of two very good crime novels (one Swedish as mentioned before and one Norwegian) in just 4 days. Tonight I choose the Lincoln Myth by Steve Berry, might just last me a bit over 3 days ;) It is such a pleasure to be able to read a LOT, after the burned out many years ago all I could focus on was the headlines in the morning paper and it took quit a few years to get back into finishing a full novel. And it and to (and still has to) be captivating from the first pages or I lost focus and interest.
I also got the Hairy Bikers third diet cookbook (almost all their meals comes in under 500kcal), made a chicken and pasta dish and managed to not read the recipe correctly – it called for 1 tbs fresh lemon juice and I used the whole lemon :o Took a bit of tweaking with too much Smetana and raw suger to balance that. So I probably overshot those 500kcal with 200kcal maybe? Well nobody seamed to mind since the whole dish got wolfed down :)
Of to bed for some (hopefully) good read.
