On Saturday we visited Hornborgasjön to do some birdwatching. This time of year, thousands (10,600 the day of our visit) of cranes stop there on the way from their winter quarters in Spain to their breeding grounds further north. The birds were a fair distance from the viewing areas, so I took most of my photos with my old, non-digital SLR and telephoto lens; but we did manage to get this shot by holding up the point-and-shoot digital camera to my binoculars:

What the?!

This morning we woke up to bright, glorious sun...and snow coming down from a big dark cloud overhead.
Thankfully the cloud moved on pretty quickly, leaving behind completely blue and clear skies.

Our beloved coffee maker died. We tried to perform an autopsy, but they make those suckers really hard to take apart!

Naturhistoriska Museet

This weekend we took a long, wet walk in the rain/snow to the Natural History Museum to see the big blue whale. They used to regularly open its mouth so visitors could go inside. Now that is only allowed on special occasions.

Vad är det?

What is this?

Answer to last week: That is a shiatsu back massager cushion. The balls that knead your back are glowing in the picture because they not only knead, they heat up as well! Ahhhhh...
