Every now and then they warn for this big storm moving towards Sweden, and most of the times nothing comes out of the storms, they pretty much die on the way here. So today, when they were warning for a big storm I didn’t really think that much about it and made my plans in normal fashion, starting with going grocery shopping straight after work.
Well, plans don’t always work out the way you want them to! 30 minutes before it was time to leave the office, I packed up my stuff and headed on home, because the wind had picked up so much that it was better to be safe than sorry. And already then, the park was full of branches on the ground that no longer were attached to their trees. I considered stopping to take a couple of pictures, then I thought again and realized that more branches were falling down, and I didn’t want one of them falling on me. So I do what any responsible grown-up person would do, I biked home as quick as I could, and arrived home safely.
However, those home-made meatballs with mashed potatoes and a glass of cold milk that I have been craving for all day have to wait, as none of the ingredients could be found in my home. Instead I had to go digging in the freezer and cupboards, and trust me, they are not as magical anymore as they used to be. That is a conscious choice from my side – thinking it more cost efficient to clean it out instead of running to the store buying more food all the time. And it works, I haven’t had to spend that much money on food lately, down side is that there are not that much room for emergencies.
Well, there’s also no trip to the library tonight, but lets all pretend that I’ve been studying at home!
