Midsummer and the day after...

Yesterday the19th of June it was Midsummer evening here in Sweden.

I celebrate the Midsummer with my friends, Agneta, Sören and Charlotte in my home.
The idea with midsummer is to be outdoors in a nice summer dress, picking seven different kinds of wild flowers and put them under your pillow and dream about the one you will married…. The weather (in fantasy) will be warm and sunny, an easy life at nice summer mead … But that almost never happened that we have warm and sunny weather this day, it is cold and almost rain in the air, every year…

We had a traditional herring dinner with Swedish fresh potatoes (the new once for the year), smoked salmon, sour cream (gräddfil) and chives… a lot of good schnapps, and bear and wine… for dessert we had Swedish strawberries and wiped cream with dark chocolate with chilli in it… Soooooooooo good!

We played Boggle and have a really fun and pleasure evening with a lot of schnapps songs etc.

Here are some photos from today, the day after…
I have been really tired today, but absolutely in a good way.
