Today is the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary. In Sweden this day became known as 'Vårfrudagen', and by time it was pronounced 'Vaffeldagen'; and from there the leap was short to 'Våffeldagen'. This means the Day of Waffles. Soooo, if you're a good Swede, you've been eating Waffles today.

Swedish proverb

This is according to Hindu Press International a Swedish proverb. I should know, shouldn't I?

Fear less, hope more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.

Swedish proverb

I have never heard it before, but I quite like it. I just remember proverbs like, 'talking is silver, silence is gold'. I think I internalised that one.

Apple brain

I think it would be more fruitful for me to have an apple between my ears.

Yes, my brain is sloooooow today.

Sign of life

I miss writing in English. It's so much easier than Swedish, somehow. I think it has to do with the amount of words one can use when writing. It also has a different flow. I might start to write here again, but just might.
