Managed to get work done at the embassy early Friday morning (and not only then but also in the beginning of the week and the end as well. #proudofmyself)
Stopped by the loveliest pâtisserie, Pascal’s
And of course bought some macaroons (or little colored “krabby patties” as my brother calls them) as a reward to myself
And later enjoyed them with this sauvignon blanc wine, discovered by my sister. A must try. They fit each other exquisitely, both superiorly rich and sweet; and not to mention, a little too much for me to handle.
For dinner: perfectly prepared mussels
Woke up early saturday morning, had some coffee at the park
Its actually really quite serene in Oslo in the morning when no one is around except people working in cafes setting up for the long day ahead.
Went to a huge street sale shopping event… which started off delightfully
But ended in a rather gruesome manner. People could barely walk down the street without being run over by crazy careless shoppers or ruthless Mom’s with strollers.
And I just realized how ugly those tram lines and electrical lines look amongst all the nicely carved buildings.
On the bright side, there was yummy, cheap food everywhere.
Sunday was spent in the company of horrid weather and movies - all day; so nothing really interesting with that. I did however, discover my 9 year old little sister’s hidden jar of peanut butter with “Don’t Touch.” written all over it… which is not odd (or glutinous) at all.
But to sum it all up, my weekend was pretty damn sweet & lovely like this little eatery I happened to come across on Saturday.
