“It’s the day Jesus flew.”

This is Dr. Darling ‘s understanding of Ascension Day, a major feast in the Christian liturgical calendar…which remarkably enough is a national holiday here in secular Sweden.

So I’ve had the day off, which was really nice. Too bad the same can’t be said for the weather.  We managed to get a stroll in while the sun was shining this morning, but a full-blown thunderstorm snuck up behind us while we were being enchanted by the baby ducks in Kungsparken. We sprinted home between rain drops and it pretty much poured off and on for the rest of the day.

So what better to do on a rainy afternoon than bake? Which lead me to discover that the oven in Malmö’s Ugliest Kitchen runs just a bit hotter than the one in our old apartment. I’m glad we found out about it by slightly scorching some scones rather than a standing rib roast. (It could happen.)

But now that I’ve spent all day having to remind myself that it wasn’t Saturday, I’m having a hard time convincing myself I need to go to bed so I can be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for work in the morning.
