Friday and philosopher fika

Fridays are good days. There’s a coffee break at work that pretty much marks the end of the day, at 3 pm, with cakes and relaxed conversations. Then there’s Mradio, which sets the mood for the weekend.

After work I went to Gallerix to have my newly bought painting framed. I’m very excited about how it will look.

Laszlo is in town, and we met for coffee at Vetekatten along with some other friends (pics here). Though we sat in the new part, Vetekatten is still a very charming place. They could have given me a bigger scope of icecream though, but I guess it was just as well – I’m not supposed to eat stuff like that.
There really isn’t a good equivalent for the Swedish word “fika”, meaning get together over a cup of coffee. I think the English language should import it.

How’’s that painting with the pussy footprint on it coming along? Your mood-o-meter was ’’high’’ when you started it…. and that’’s a nice sign.

I took a pause to let it dry before continuing.. and now I’’m not sure if I should, or if it’’s finished. Though it’’s really just a lot of yellow, some red and two shapes (women?). It was my mom who had a look at it and said she likes it the way it is. The paw print had to go, though. :-)

  1. I like this article so much. I just knew that my name comes from Swedish root tat means together over a cup of coffee. It sounds great.
