Fantastic weather and crowd at the Wik Harvest Market. 

  
  

The weather has turned hot. 30 centigrade is hot for around here . I can only manage to do a little watering, weeding and such for a couple hours in the morning. Then I have to take it easy for the rest of the day. I get a lot of reading done and go swimming.

Christmas eve is the big holiday here dedicated to family, food and presents. Christmas day is the day after – the day of contemplation and rest and play. On Djurby farm we all get together somewhere in nature.

Annandag Jul – the day after or Boxing Day is a traditional holiday here too. Our family always goes somewhere special for an excursion.

Because there was too much snow for hiking in the wild, we took a drive to the local castle (Wik Castle) and walked around the park viewing the woods, lake and buildings.
