Good for kids!

Google Maps has this thing where it lets you know if an attraction is “good for kids.” Not sure exactly how well this works, as I found this while looking for things to do with my kids in Turin:

An unexpectedly busy summer

I’ve been off the internet for most of the summer. Contrary to the rest of the world, we have done more traveling this summer than usual. One trip for a family issue, one trip never cancelled, and one trip within our own country that had been planned because we assumed all other trips wouldn’t happen.

But the biggest trip this summer has been the guilt trip for leaving!

Though I like to say we helped other countries’ tourism economy. Someone needed to get to Italy and drink that wine! We were just helping out.

Keep an eye on your Easter chickens!

Is your brain stew gluten free?

For an upcoming trip to Budapest, I started looking at restaurants to visit. Generally, I’ll try a lot of things, but I think I’ll skip this place.

Winter dose of Vitamin D

Going on a short trip to see some real sunshine! Haven’t seen real sun for a couple of months now. Getting weak and pasty! Also, I’m out of Vitamin D pills, so what choice did I have?
Tales of the sun next week. Happy New year all!

Merry Christmas from Pigs without Pants

I’ve always thought pigs on cards at Chrsitmas is a strange thing. Apparently, many places eat ham for Christmas dinner, so this somehow equates to pig cards, pig cookie cutters, pig ornaments, etc. It’s just weird, especially when the pig is happy or also excited about Christmas. Just seems cruel.

But one thing I’ve noticed…. no matter where you are in the world… pigs don’t wear pants.

Merry Christmas. I leave you with these words:

We are all the same in this world. No matter what country you live in, pigs don’t wear pants.

Swedish Christmas from a Swede

All of the other reindeer USED to laugh..

I had to go to the grocery store to buy reindeer for dinner tonight. I plan to tell the kids that these were the reindeer that just didn’t make the cut for the holidays. (Then I’m going to throw just one cherry tomato into the mix).

Ok, here’s the horrible list

I ended last week on a nice note with beautiful Christmas music.

So now here’s my list of TERRIBLE Christmas music! It’s a great list to have if you want to get rid of holiday guests.
