Yesterday it was the annual Scandinavian banks burn ball tournament in Luxembourg.
Of course Norway was represented but not at all in the same serious spirit as the Swedes! We had to bring children and wives in to our team, and the swedes had to make a top ten selection of their (56!) players. Anyway, even though we ended on the bottom of the list we had a lot of fun.
Unfortunately I am in to bad shape, and today I had to pay for that. My whole body screams for a gentle massage!
Have never had such ache in my whole life.....
..... need to start practise to next year's tournament!
We went back in time before fancy digital cameras and computer programs, and we made our own pinhole "cameras". Simply take a box (shoebox is to big we discovered) and make a hole with a needle. Fasten a photo paper in the back of the box and "shoot" your object. Develop the picture in the old fashion dark room, and voila......
I visited MNHA for the first time on Thursday. These days there is a photo exhibition from the Luxembourgish photographer Edward Steichen (1879-1973). I am fascinated how he captured the light and the composition in his photos and also the quality of his work when you think about this is from early 1900. The exhibition goes on till the end of August.
I feel that I'm living in the south these days, we eat, read and play outside the most of the time, and I love it!
So no exception to day.
Grilled fish on the bbq and this old, swedish hand painted dish full with water melon.
Actually, I almost forgot about this dish. My grandmother (who loved auctions) gave it to me when I was a child. Didn't like it to much then, but now I think it's perfect for a summer day in the garden.
I think she's pleased to be here, but she wasn't very pleased with the colours in her new flat! So on Sunday me and my friend helped out with the painting job in the living room. Out with the colourful "mexican" scheme and in with the white "scandinavian" style. And in between the great work we did, we had a picnic on the balcony, well deserved!
It was the annual Duck Race in Petrusse this Saturday. As usual we were there (important since husband is one of the organizers). We had a great time as always with sunshine, nice friends and a lot of cremant...... and of course the race with 10 000 yellow, plastic ducks.
