Cooler weather

We suddenly had cooler temperatures. 10 F degrees below average according to the excited meteorologists (who suddenly had some sort of Weather to talk about).

Meaning we woke up to +14C Brr! After weeks with waking up to the sound of the poor AC trying to cool the house, we suddenly could use "natural AC" - open windows.

I was a bit confused... +14C... Maybe I needed a sweater... or socks??

The "cold front" will last until Thursday. Then we're back to normal again. Until then I'm going to e enjoy wearing long sleeves in the morning (not really necessary, but it feels nice after weeks in t-shirts)!

(and we ended up with +29 in the late afternoon, so we didn't really freeze...).

Oj 14 grader låter riktigt kallt med tanke på den värme ni tidigare har haft. Men man får väl passa på att njuta och svalka sig av kallfronten.

Visst ar det harligt!!
Sover betydligt battre nu pa natterna, brukar undvika A/C pa natterna.

Jacal, sag du om Ikea hade kraftor da du var dar sist? Har forsokt att ringa och fraga med stort omojligt att fa tag i nagon som svarar i telefonen.

Desiree - ja, frysigt! ;-) Faktiskt ganska skönt...

Veronika - ja, nu kan man ju öppna fönstren - helt perfekt!! FAst allt blir som vanligt till helgen... (kul att se dig igen btw!). Japp - de hade kräftor förra veckan. De hade till och med hattar och haklappar - dock bara ett fåtal ex (jag köpte inte - har sen tidigare resor till Sverige). De hade dukat upp ett helt "kräftskive" bord... måste väl visa hur det ska gå till - annars verkar det väl helkonstigt med kräftor. Jag ska åka ner i veckan, troligtvis på torsdag- måste byta en gardinstång som var för kort. Då tänkte jag köpa.

I'm always cold in the house and the car because of the darn air conditioning. I often wear socks and a cardigan in the house.Trouble is I'm sensitive to the heat too so I can't win!

Miranda - that's sure is the tricky part of living here... to keep a "lagom" (great Swedish word!) temperature in between hot sun and cold AC... I always bring a sweater when we eat out... I'm a person who freezes a lot... I brought out my fleece blanket the other cool night...

miranda said...

Yes and the shops over the road freeze me to death!
I get very cold hands and feet. They go like ice! I also have a lovely fleece blanket that i watch TV on the couch with while hubby sits in shorts and t-shirt...ha!
Yes I'm familiar with Lagom and I used it in Ikea (to my family to show off!!) to say that my meatballs were just the right temperature! Was I right to use it like that or not?

Miranda - good to know you know basic Swedish now! ;-) Yes... we have a slight different view on "warm" and "cold" in this house too. Which always makes dressing the kids an interesting story... I remember our "child class" we took when being pregnant the first time when they said, "dress your baby with one more layer than you would wear"... ok - let's just say that my normal "layer" and the Husband's normal "layer" are two completely different things... ;-)
