I have returned from a couple of hectic but fun days at the university. The way home looked like this for three hours, small road crossing the big forest only sparingly passing small sleepy villages. I hoped to show some photos of Karlstad because it's a beautiful town but I unfortunately had no time.
Almost at home there was a huge traffic jam that caught me stuck for another one and a half hour. The weather has been very unpredictable.
I was inspired by a Lebanese lunch at the university and cooked Lebanese meze for dinner today. On the plates you can se spicy sausages, kaftas, hoummus, falalfel, baba ganoush, fattoush and youghurt. I also served pita breads.
As you can see on the photo below spring arrived again. The saturday evening was warm and calm. As the ground was wet it was perfect for burning twigs and as a celebration to the Vernal Equinox.
The magical fire fascinates the boys and they helped me to keep it alive as the daylight got weaker.
In the end there were only a glowing pile left. The ashes and the coal will be nutrition to my root vegetables this summer.
