And Then It Was Winter
It snowed on Friday. That was followed by chaos and several accidents out on the roads. As I'm typing this it is -5C. Stay warm.

The Yellowhammer and the siskin

I hear they serve a decent cajun burger here. This fast food place in Jordbro has changed its name a couple of times in the last four years. It sits next to the indoor golf arena which also has a popular gym. Day 20 in my project 100 Days Of Darkness.

This Just In!

This Just In!
Is that a blue sky? If so it was there for several minutes. Don't think I have seen something like that for at least a couple of weeks! Must have been the first time this month. As witnessed at the Krigslia bridge one hour ago.

Walking the Earth

Walking the Earth
I read an article yesterday about a man, Eric who had walked around the planet. Sort of. For the last decade, he had walked the same promenade every day year-round in the picturesque Hagaparken. No matter the weather. He was celebrated yesterday with flowers and cake. This man has done the same. His daily walk takes him from Tungelsta to the retirement home in Västerhaninge where his wife lives, and then home again. I don't know his name but we often stop for a chat. He is always very positive and has told me quite a few stories over the years. I guess I should buy him coffee one day. And cake.

November Mood

November
This is how I feel about November. Cold. Gray. Dark. I bike here most every day. The walkway between Västerhaninge and Nedersta follows the railway line Nynäsbanan and this is often a good spot if you enjoy biking against the wind, which I don't.

All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey

Autumn Leaf
That song is a really good description of the start of November. Although I did find this Autumn leaf on the stone wall at the cemetery yesterday, when we did have a bit of sunshine. Theme Day. Brown.
