Mr winter is back

And it´s white again. April does what he wants. It started snowing Sunday evening and it stopped on Tuesday evening, approx. 10 till 15 cm new fresh white snow
With mixed feelings do I look at this. The snow is coming two weeks to late. We needed it with the Easter holiday´s. It´s beautiful when the sun is shining and the sky is blue but it felt so good to see the grass getting greener.

Last week on Friday did the children play out side and one of the girls wanted to have here sunglasses and her sunhat. It was summer she said. It was even possible to dry our laundry out side. 

 It looks like all the drivers from the plowshares are on a holiday

And from the 15th April is it no longer allowed to drive on studded tires. I´m not sure who made this rule but this person certainly don not live here.

Happy Easter

When we think of Easter we think of snow, sunshine and skiing ( both cross country and alpine). But this year
it feels like it´s already springtime. The snow is almost gone. The weather is good and warm during the day and cold during night. But the snow quality on the skiing areas Idre Fjäll and Fjätervålen is icy so conditions are not good for a nice cross country trip. But that´s no problem for our guests. They enoy themselves with reading and walking. It´s perfect for a walk in the forest and on the fjäll because the snow is real hard so easy walking.

Also this year we had our Easter package. Our guests for this package arrived on Friday. On Saturday evening we had our traditional Easter buffet with lamb, chicken stew, salmon stew, various types of cold salmon, salad, potatoes, Easter cake and ice cream. The children did a dance show and they are relay good!

On Sunday did the Easter bunny paid us a visit and he did hide lots of  bunnies, eggs and chickens from chocolate in the garden. The children liked it. The adults enjoyed the sun and a good cup of coffee prepared on open fire. A very nice and relaxed afternoon!
