from Sunday night

What a weekend we had - I can almost feel spring. So much good light, and up to sixty degrees both days. Our time was equal parts busy and relaxed. Yesterday we sat on the beach until the sun went down. A couple of neighbors we haven't seen in many months were out doing yard work, and they joined us for a bit.

Slightly behind the masses, I've become entrenched in The Millenium Trilogy via audiobook. Somewhat antisocially, I've been walking around the house with headphones on, and wearing them at hockey games. The stories are dark and frightening, and I can't stop myself. Kind of reminds me of our behavior when we starting watching Lost in the middle of season five.

I hope your weekend was a nice one. xo

Oh wow, I didn't know the Millennium Trilogy book came as an audiobook. I've been wanting to buy the movie (Swedish), but the audiobook sounds tempting.

That sunset is amazing.
We watched the three Swedish films and they were fantastic, especially the first one! I highly recommend them. I loved them so much that I started reading the first book, and must admit: I like the films better! Very rare that this happens.
Happy Monday! Always look forward to following your week, even though I don't always comment, I always do stop by.

I love the light, I love when it comes back, and it stays longer in the days now :)

I was introduced to those books via audio, and am by grateful for that! I would have flubbed the pronunciation of so many names, and I think that would have been a tragedy.

Love the sun we've been having in Seattle! You have to absolutely catch the swedish films if you haven't already, they are not disappointing one bit!

I couldn't put the books down when I read them! I never warmed up to audio books, but I have walked around recently with earbuds, listening to music!
