This is why we live in Steamboat

Just got back from skiing. Blue sky, 40°F and not as icy as expected. In other words a very good start of the 2009/10 ski season. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

P.S. Yesterday's Thanksgiving dinner party turned out really nice!

Cozy Wozy

Went in to Steamboat to do some Thanksgiving baking. Tonight we are having Chocolate Souffle a la Max. I am very excited about that. He doesn't really like to bake but I hope he is going to start doing it more often. We are going to a dinner party tomorrow night and they asked us to make desert so Max is making coconut cream pie and miniature apple pies. Yum! I was making more cinnamon buns but with real compressed yeast this time which turned out way better!

Afterward we hiked Emerald Mountain. Enjoying our days off!

Holiday Season

Today I am only going to work three hours.
Then it's Thanksgiving Break!
When that is over I am working two more weeks.
Then it is Christmas Break!
Love it!

Swedish Humor!

This might not be a fun clip to watch if you don't speak Swedish but to explain the content of the video it is about television licence.

A television licence is an official licence required in many countries for the reception of television (and sometimes also radio) broadcasts. It is a form of tax to fund public broadcasting, thus allowing public broadcasters to transmit programmes without, or with only supplemental, funding from radio and television commercials.

The current licence fee in Sweden is 2076 kr (about $300.00) per annum. The fee pays for five TV channels, 45 radio channels as well as TV and Radio on the Internet. Source: Wikipedia

Some people pay the licence fee, some don't. In this video clip they were saying thank you to Lesli Myrthil, the basketball player, who payed the fee. It took place at NK, one of the most famous malls in central Stockholm.

Winter Wonder World

Goodmorning friends! Half a foot of snow on the roads this morning so I decided to dump Ugly Betty for the Jeep and Max. Enjoying my coffee in Max's office meanwhile reading blogs and responding to some emails. Am about to start working on inputting December's menu on the website,

It is a beautiful & peaceful Monday. Love!

Blog is Back!

Ran out of energy and inspiration but started to miss blogging so now I am back. During my break from blogging life has pretty much gone on routine besides a trip to London which was absolutely wonderful.

I am simply going to start over and begin with today. We started our Sunday with going up to the National Forest to look for a potential X-mas tree and found one that we are going to come back for in a couple of weeks. This fall has gone by quickly and I can't believe it's almost December. Snow has fallen and melted several times during the last month and Wednesday is opening day for the ski mountain. Will write more later.

P.S. Mom I want a Swedish Julgransmatta, do u have one to spare? :)
