Saturday days.

I've taken over 2 months to finish Patti Smith's 'Just Kids'. Not because it was hard to read but because I would only allow myself 1 or 2 pages a day! I just didn't want to finish it. Such a beautiful account of her love and friendship with Richard Maplethorpe. A must read for all.
Then Sam found this Patti Smith poetry book with each poem written in both english and swedish. The perfect answer to further my Swedish studies and a Saturday afternoon.

1st fire of the year! It's been HOT here but Saturday it was torrential rain. Great excuse for a fire!
We visited Sweden'd biggest car boot sale and found this old box dating from 1806. 200 years old!
It was used to measure grain back in the day.
