strawberries

Today was market eve in my home town so we were open an hour longer than usual. A lot of work led to my break running a “tad” bit late, but at least I got one. (At one point I did wonder.) Last hour it calmed down though. I guess the weather (rain and cold) had some part in that.

As usual I was craving something sweet, so today I got Strawberries. I love to eat them just as they are (well rinsed, but that’s all I do).

 strawberries!

I can never get tired of Strawberries, I l♥ve them. I even wear them on my shoes this summer.

strawberry shoes!

Café and 2nd hand

I’ve been working 5 hours in the café today. The café is the most stressful part of the job for me. I never seem to manage to close on time. Somehow I still manage to clock out in (good) time though. Probably because I have workmates who help me out. I like my workmates! 
I’ll be working a lot in the café during summer so I do hope I get faster with a little training.

I’ve been buying clothes 2nd hand online and today I picked up the package that recently arrived. My sister keeps nagging me about “going out” only I can’t wear a sweatshirt or hoodie *sigh*

front …and back

What do you think about this one, think she’ll accept it?
It took some time to get a shot that showed the back, I got a lot of pics of my neck though. You really shouldn’t watch close-up of parts of your body. Now I have weird complex-issues about my neck.

The day ended in a good way with my latest addiction; FruitDanish
M did say it when I brought a bag for the 3rd day in a row:
-The café isn’t good for you, ellen
I’ll be rolling instead of walking before this summer has ended

I’m sorry!

Wow, it’s been ages since I blogged properly. Probably because the more time I spend here, the more I miss HKO. And I miss HKO!

Please bring it back, pretty please!

Anyways, I’m hearing words about HKO getting closer and closer to opening up again, so maybe I dare start blogging for real again?
 I’m svamped at work though, so I won’t promise to much, but I’ll do my best. I do miss my blogging as well after all.

Cupcakes

I love baking. I can’t say that’s it’s a passion, cause I don’t do it so often (don’t have time, I prioritise other things). But when I do, I enjoy it!

Today at 10pm I decided to make me some baking-time. As I had been shopping for a new recipe I’d found a couple of days ago, it was easy to decide what to bake; Geisha & Nutella Cupcakes.

I don’t know if you have Geisha or Nutella where you live, but basically it was a lot of chocolate. Mmm-hmmm…

 mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…

Ok, so they look hideous, but please keep in mind this was my first try. I’ll make them better-looking next time. And yes, there will definatelly be a next time cause they were extremely tasty!

Now I just need to figure out how to not eat all of them tonight…

Going to Stockholm

So I decided to try participate in an online Karaoke-contest on the website of one of the two biggest newspapers here in Sweden. This past thursday evening they called me to let me know the other participants and people who registered just to try it for fun had voted me as #1 and I had won 2 tickets to the Swedish finale of Eurovision Song Contest during Saturday!

Ok, so there were maybe 20 participating, but I was still chocked and I still got very happy! So I had 2 days to find a hotell and get a train-ticket, but somehow I managed and me and my sister headed for Stockholm and Globen.

We had a good view from our seats as we sat straight opposite from the scene.

before the show there were some other performances

My favourite was Sarah Dawn Finer with “Moving On”, which was even more “huge” when seeing it live (and feeling every beat through my body).

But the winner was Malena Ernman with “La voix”. I don’t mind, though, cause I really liked that song too.

All in all, I had a great weekend, and I don’t think anyone I would have brought along would have been as happy as my screaming sister.

It’s over ;_;

I went to bed early so I could get up and play the last hours of Happy Hearts. I set the alarm for 3.30am (it went down 5am), but the alarm didn’t wake me! I missed the end and now I won’t get to play any more!
****
I will go cry now.

Anyways, on a happier note, they announced the Happy Hearts Quest Event Winners!
Congrats Kenman, Kaito, Serenity, Miyabi and Yueya!

 Tell me which bloggers have the most screenies of the end hours. I need to see some and pretend I was there!

Fancy visit on my farm!

So, I actually had Hello Kitty visit me on my farm today. I had to rub my eyes and squint to know it was true. And then the screening-frenzy began.

You might (should) have read about Hello Kitty being out and about in Ripplecloud’s Blog. I have also run into Hello Kitty a couple of times before during FB. At first I saw her running around in Florapolis and later on we (the *Twin Starrs*-guild) caught her on the beach during the end of FB.

But this is different, she actually came to visit me on my farm!

*stunned* HK?! ehm… HI! oh, now, where is that F11? *don’t dare to take my eyes off the screen*

She was all over the place, running around and looking at everything. Who could blaim her with all the pretty roses and fountains to look at though?

And then I started wondering aloud
I did see GM-Zel appear and dissappear near the board outside a while ago…

And I started wondering other things aloud without getting any answers.. finally I started feeling like I had lost my mind talking to myself like that. And that was around the time that she left. She went to the door like any other nice guest and she was gone.

My guildies encouraged me to follow her, but by the time I gout outside she was gone. I saw Kittynator and Bi sitting outside and asked if they had seen her run by. And just then… Hello Kitty appeared again out of thin air! Only to run off and I wasn’t fast enough to catch her or see which way she went.

Hey, there she is again!

But it was fun having you visit Hello Kitty, come back again, any time you’d like!

My new farm

I must say, I really enjoy the farms now! Before I thought it was so stressful with the constant pause, un-pause, pause again over and over. This new system I got the hang of much faster, so thank you HKO for that!

Also, the new farmstyles are so pretty! I knew the instant that I saw GM Abbys blog about her farm that I would never find a more beautiful one, and I didn’t. But then there was the question of $. 20,000$ doesn’t grow on sorosis’s.

So I started of really simple in the Happy Hearts of HKO.
visitors!
That didn’t stop me from getting nice visitors though. Both Starrfire7 and Bi came to visit my little farm during the first couple of days.

My Guild-mates quickly got their pretty farms though and I felt it was time to speed up on the $-raising.
Ghost made sure she would never have to get water again, by simply putting her farm next to a nice brook.
Ghost will never run out of water for her plants

And Kiui has a thing for the mountains.
“eco” - “eco,eco,eco”

So… after a rollback that took the last 6k I had made (I finally reached 20k and then the rollback happened) I pulled my strenght together one last time and finally got my own beautiful farm!

I can’t help but spend a lot of time in there. Especially now with the great new farming-system. This lead to me running into an old friend from another online-game I’ve been really addicted to (I still play it, just not during HKO’s betas), Ceci. It was so much fun talking to her again, it’s been a while since we talked. The perks of keeping the same username in several places online.
Ceci!

I’ll end it with a bic pic of my new farm. My pride and joy! Just click the pic to see it in all it’s amazing glory!
Pink! and Roses! … *happy sigh* I’m in love…

You’re welcome to come visit anytime!

The first hour is done

So I got in just fine when HKO opened it’s doors again. I finished enough quest for today and found out there will be 1 quest per day going on for 5 days. Too bad I’ll be working then so I can’t really get up at 4 am, but good luck to those who can!

My first hour was full of fun, though.

First thing I noticed; I love being able to quickly see which NPC to talk to on a quest with that helping question-mark leading the way.
?

After finishing my quest, I run into koray, which very un-characteristicly wasn’t afk but very much there. It was nice getting to talk to him for a bit!
koray is moving!

I also got to meet some of the other guild-mates. Starrfire7, Ghost and Tidesong where also online. I never saw Tide, and Ghost was like the wind. I was to busy getting the blowing hair out of my mouth to get a good screenie of her. But Starrs happily took a breather with me.
bow before the guild-leaderess!

Hearing from my guild-mates that petcards were now dropping, I quickly ran to my first favourite in HKO, the Skunks. Luckily enough I got a card on my first try. I wasn’t as lucky when I continued to the Fox’s, but I’ve got time to work on them. Anyways, meet my new friend cotton candy!
cotton candy!

Now I’ll see if I can catch me some of that sleep I’ve been hearing about. It’s supposed to be good for you, so I’d better give it a shot.
