This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
I can’t believe I haven’t thought about that before, food coloring in pancakes to make it funnier. Yesterday when me and the girl baked cupcakes and I made blue frosting I got the idea. They became more green than blue, but it was still cool. The girl requested pink pancakes next time, haha!
I’ve been feeling a lot better today, no headache at all! My stomach is still bothering me, but at least I know why and that it will go away in a few days.
The girl was feeling pretty bad today so she didn’t do much, she read a lot and watched some TV. Me and the boy played games in the morning and after our blue lunch he had a friend over.
It was my turn to cook dinner and I made honey/garlic glazed salmon in the oven with couscous, steamed broccoli and tartar sauce. I thought it was really good! And it was kinda funny because when my hostdad saw me cooking he asked me if my hostmom asked me to do salmon today, I said no, I was just in the mood for it. And then he said that he had called her today at work asking if she could cook salmon tonight. The same thing happened when I first got here and gave my hostparents two Ekelund kitchen towels from Sweden and my hostdad asked me if I had talked to one of the old au pairs about him collecting kitchen towels. Which she of course didn’t.
Tonight I’ve also signed up for my last 3 credits here in the US, German! I think it’s good that I take this class now. Because right now I really want to take German classes when I get back to Sweden but since I know myself I probably wouldn’t do it when it would come to it. But if I start now and end the class just two months before I get back to Sweden I will have more motivation to actually do it. So I guess I have to find out where and how to do those classes pretty soon.
Last thing about today is that I’ll probably finish another book tonight. I only have 20 pages left in the first Percy Jackson book, but I’m not gonna start the second one just yet. Since I have the best mom in the world, she sent me new versions of all the Narnia books, which works in my eReader. So my next project, The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis.
Okay, once last thing. Today’s my little brother’s 20th birthday (which is huge in Sweden because you can legally buy alcohol)! Happy Birthday to you if you’re reading this!
