Waiting for summer

We are still waiting for the summer that doesn't really seem to come for real this year.
So this is what we do while we are waiting: Reading lots of Astrid Lindgren stories in preparation for this year's visit in Pippi land, eating salads every day - this one was particularly good with new potatoes, radishes, apples, roasted almonds, fresh goat cheese, lettuce, raspberry vinegar and olive oil. We haven't had that many ice creams this year but the crochet one from Shirley Bredahl is a favourite in Frida Viola's kitchen.

We are looking forward to swimming in the sea (and in the Swedish lakes!), sitting outside until late, finding wild berries in the forrest, visiting lots of flea markets and forgetting about time.
