this weekend was one of the best ones in a long while. so incredibly relaxing. i needed that.
we cancelled most of our plans and just stayed in. in sweden we say pyssla, meaning just calmly do a little bit of this, a little bit of that. like organising the storage room, prepare some kimchi, read a little, write a little.
nothing heavy. cozy kind of mucking about, getting all the stuff done that you don’t have the time for on busy weekdays. the low priority stuff. the stuff that makes life beautiful.
we started off our saturday morning with recording the third episode of our podcast MUSTARD ON MOVIES. this episode was all about the top 5 funniest movie moments, our favourite laugh out loud scenes in film.

after that i did a bit of calming exercising. david oiled the wooden shafts of some gorgeous new pots we jut got from eva solo. will show you guys later, they’re dreamy !
and we made a new batch of chocolate granola, making the whole flat smelling lovely the rest of the day. i ate a lot of the batch before it even made it into the oven.
we have a new little corner in the flat with our acapulco chair (our only really soft and comfy seat in the apartment so far) and a new side table slash storage unit, that is so cozy. we have our AW drinks there and i also love snuggling up in the acapulco and read for hours. laying back in that chair feels sort of like being in a hammock.
so i had a bloglovin’ session in the reading corner ( will show you the cozy corner soon, promise ! ), catching up on my favourite blogs.
david went to the shop and got us some beer and potatoes. it’s a thing in our family of two – watching crappy movies, eating potato wedges and drinking beer. probably because that’s what we did on our first date. david’s an expert at getting super crispy wedges – even in our horrible gas oven !
the movie we watched was keanu by the way. not a particularly good movie at all, but a hella cute kitten.
in the evening we went for a long walk through the city before meeting up with friends for some drinks in prenzlauer berg. then home for a snack and a couple of episodes of our new fav anime – seraph of the end.
saturday, the end.
sunday was even calmer if that’s possible.
david went out for a jog in the morning. i just had some tea and relaxed, and then some light exercising. we decided to have absolutely no musts and just enjoy a slow day.
david watched movies, and i did a lot of reading in our new reading corner. haven’t spent that much time reading in a day for probably years. what a luxury. i’m reading a book about wine, just to learn the basics about the one drink i truly enjoy.
i’m also reading a crime novel called tokyo year zero, set in tokyo 1946. it’s the first book in a triogy. not for the faint of heart. it’s kind of hardcore reading. but very interesting !
what else…? oh we made kimchi. haven’t had time to refill my kimchi stock in ages, and now our tiny fridge is filled with stinky little glass jars. the joy that brings me !
after a light lunch i did some writing for an hour or two. another luxury, finding the time to write.
we just had to watch a few more episodes of end of seraph before dinner. the yummiest dinner by the way, brown rice and lentil congee with all them veggies, mushrooms, and fried tofu. we watched now you see me 2. not a good movie, but kind of entertaining. it fitted our lazy and relaxed weekend mood.
and oh, we sneaked in another episode or two of seraph of the end. and that was it !
our wonderfully relaxed weekend. i want another one !
ok, so dont forget to listen to our podcast if you’re interested.
i have to go now because we just got a delivery a couple of minutes ago. our sofa is here ! can you believe it !?
