The summer was short this year
Published: Monday 2005-05-16.
During the past weekend I have enjoyed the beautiful weather, with the sun shining and the thermometer showing fifteen degrees (in the shadow), yesterday I had dinner at an open-air café. Not the first this year, but the first when I could eat outdoors just dressed in a short-sleeved shirt and thin summer pants–it just felt like summer, or at least early summer, was here.
But then Monday came. Went up rather early today, even though today is a holiday, to wash clothes and spring-clean my flat and got really depressed when I looked out the window... Rain and rough weather and only five degrees. No, that taste of summer didn’t last for very long, so I guess I was lucky that I was able to take the chance to enjoy it while it lasted.
Tomorrow is 17th of May, Norway’s national day. I’ll probably go downtown to watch the Norwegians for a while tomorrow with a couple of friends, that is usually quite fun.
