I sat down to write my monthly recap of city life but couldn’t remember anything I wanted to say. My mind has been too preoccupied with world events lately. However, it’s easy to remember that February gave us longer days and blue skies.
Ice and snow still covered large areas of water, with the exception of narrow channels through boat routes.
Enjoying fika under blankets while it was still sub zero. I love how people in Sweden (young and old) just wrap up and embrace the cold rather than hiding away.
I visited Skogskyrkogården on Alla Helgons dag but we made a recent trip because Scott had never been. It’s a large forest cemetary and Unesco World Heritage site, with chapels dotted around the grounds.
The photo above is from inside Uppståndelsekapellet (Chapel of the Resurrection), as I saw it through an inch wide peephole on the door. Skogskappellet (The Forest Chapel) is my favourite one but I couldn’t get a decent photo this time. It’s small, rustic and tucked in the forest; somewhere I like the idea of my funeral service being held when the time comes.
The boat slowly made its way through ice at Södra Järnvägsbron before grinding to a halt. I love this photo because it shows the expanse of Winter here.
People all over Stockholm gathered to peacefully protest against the war in Ukraine — more photos in the link if you are interested.
And that’s all for February!
