Today I had frightened vegetables for lunch. At least, that's what the label said.

Crosswords

Jul. 12th, 2015 09:30 pm
At the moment I have a stack of three-four-five... eight crossword magazines on my desk. I'll probably get a new one soon.

Crosswords is a hobby that's been a little coming and going with me, but I have always enjoyed it. This time, I have found a magazine which has good ones. I usually do a couple of words here and a couple there, and leave it for later, but today I have finished two or three.

Today's most ridiculous pun has to have been the reference to "mutanter" which wasn't mutants, as it turned out, but moo-ladies. Cows.
I bought a tomato plant some time ago (and have now put it in a large bucket in the greenhouse, which I hope it will enjoy). The instructions given at the plant shop included the word "tjuvas". I suppose I might translate that as "to be thieved". It did cause me to hesitate a little.

In the end I asked about it: "who's going to thieve it?"

It meant something else, of course.

New choir!

Mar. 31st, 2012 12:22 am
I think it's been over two months since my last post. I haven't been particularly busy, only... not writing anything. And then I get embarrassed for not having written anything.

But here's one March post. I'll try to manage a couple of April ones as well.

I January a new church choir was formed in Ånge, and my choir buddy Mv and I decided to give it a try, and skip the one-hour-drive to Haverö. I think we got what we hoped for.

Ångekören is a working choir. When I came home yesterday, I felt that -- I had not only been singing, but working with the songs. We are in a bit of a hurry, since we are planning for a concert in early May:) We have already sung at one singalong and at a Sunday service. Our next engagement is on what is known in Sweden as Pink Thursday[1].

It feels like we're juggling a little more than we can handle at the moment, but I'm confident. We'll manage.

[1] Well, not really, it's more a matter of homonyms. 'Skär' means 'pink', 'skära' means 'to cut', but there is also an archaic 'skära', which means 'to cleanse, to purify'. It's that last one which is present in 'Skärtorsdagen', the Thursday before Easter.
