Mens jeg har været her, er sneen smeltet i lyntempo og humøret steget betragteligt. Solen skinner om dagen og her er dejligt varmt, mens det hele fryser til is om natten.
Børnene er som at slippe køer på græs, og generelt har folk her i Ann Arbor ikke skullet bruge mange plus-grader for at hoppe i shorts og t-shirts. Vældig imponerende!
Before I went to Michigan, I was told to pack the warm clothes. Winter has been terribly cold!
While I have been here, the snow has been melting like crazy and the mood has become more and more cheerful. The sun is shining during the day, making everything nice and warm, while everything freezes again during the night.
The kids have been like cows let out in the fields on the first day of spring, and most people here in Ann Arbor haven't needed a lot of warmer temperatures before wearing shorts and t-shirts. Very impressive!
Her er det en klump sne, der røg i floden på en dejlig gåtur. Men hun har danset og hoppet lidt mere i det hele taget - ikke bare, når hun smider med sne!
My niece, who is almost a teenager, was totally ready to wear shorts. Which her parents wouldn't allow......
Here, she is throwing a lump of snow in the river when we went for a nice walk. But she has been dancing and hopping a bit more these days - not just when she is throwing snow!
We also met a skier. Wearing shorts. How often do you see that?
Det ER altså bare sådan en skøn alder, 15 år!
I morgen skal jeg så hjem igen. Desværre. Denne uge er gået alt for hurtigt!
It IS a lovely age, 15 years!
Tomorrow I'll be going back home again. Unfortunately. This week went by too quickly!
De er i wollmeise, strikket på pind 2,5 mm og vejer 120 gram.
By the way, I finished another pair of birthday socks. This time for my nephew, who had his birthday on March 10th and has big feet. So they took a while to make!
They are made with wollmeise, I used needles size 2.5 mm and they weigh 120 grams.
