Grandma’s Dijon mustard and tomato pie

A little bit of writing

I didn’t do much writing today but it was enough to finish chapter 13. I had some ice cream to celebrate: My goal is to finish chapter 14 before the end of the month.

Happy Midsummer!

Here in Sweden, it is Midsummer week-end. Unfortunately, because of Covid, there won’t be any large gatherings like we traditionally have. But that’s no reason not to celebrate and give appreciation for all the season gives. Today we celebrated with a bit of strawberry cake. I was going to bake one myself but then IFortsätt läsa ”Happy Midsummer!”
