New Year's eve with dad.

New Year's eve was nothing special, i decided to spend it with my dad in my childhood-home, just a fiew blocks away from my apartment. We had a gorgeous lobster and some Dopff brut, then ox filet with garlic and parsly and a decent shiraz, then i planned to make an apple tart but opted for some fresh, cut pineapple with chocolates and coffee - and then some more Dopff at the stroke of midnight while we saw the new year in on television with Jan Malmsjö and Anne-Sofie von Otter. I was invited to a party, but way out in the suburbs and i'm glad i didn't go - can't cope with crowds, especially not now.

I do hope we get a decent winter this year, it snowed generously in the end of November but then just thawed away and then it rained and it rained, but now for a couple of weeks it's been cold, and the rooftops covered with sparkling layers of frost - no snow so far but i really, desperately hope for more of that or i shall get terribly depressed! Oh, enough about that! -i should get some sleep...

Goodnight and Happy New Year!views from my balcony the other day.

The remains of our little feast. A pretty little still-life in the sink - don't you think?

Sounds like a comfortable New Year's eve!
I love your header by the way. What's the painting?

Your NYEve sounded wonderful to me. And your view!! All the best to you for the New Year. (If I didn't tell you that yet. I'm getting confused. Have probably told everyone about a million times. I start to get a bit loopy after awhile on this computer.)I wish you lots and lots of snow. Post pics of it on your rooftops when it finally arrives, will you?
