A day in the park


It sure is hot outside. Today it has been been around 28+C. Very hot! What do you do to not melt away? You pack your bag and leave your sauna of an apartment and go to the park! That’s what I did.

280609-5This is what I brought for the park.

I met Ellen in a small park near her apartment at 15.00 ish. The park is quite small, so we decided to go to another. The plan was to go to Tøyen Park and directed where to go. And I’m happy we did, because if not, then we would’ve ended up in the Botanical Garden which Ellen thought was Tøyen Park. hihi. And in the Botanical Garden you can’t lay on the grass or have a bbq.

We found a nice spot near a chestnut tree in the shadow. It was too hot for our liking to sit in the sun. Gladly we sat just outside the danger-zone of getting chestnuts in our head. We heard a few falling!

First thing we do is to fire up the grill. It took about 20 mins until it was hot enough to grill anything on it. In the meantime we turned on some music. I got this handy little speakers I can plug into my mp3 player. The player was now with some new music from Gaslight Anthem, (more) Bruce and some of Michael Jackson’s hits. The mp3 player was cleared with music from Per Gessle/Roxette/Gyllene Tider. I was a bit fed up with them and I got annoyed everytime one of their songs came up when I played random songs. We had a little movie-quiz going on aswell.


We ate these lovely burgers. Two each. They tasted good with the cheese and some cucumber. The bread was a bit burnt on one side, but that’s how it supposed to be when you’re out bbqing. Not everything is perfect!

After we finished the burgers we went on eating the bag of grapes we had opened while waiting for the food to get ready. And we played some more. This time, two games of Rummy Cub, which I won both! It was fun playing. We also had a new quiz, this time music quiz. Oh boy I sucked. I like to think I know a bit about music, but there sure is a hell of a lot I don’t know. That’s for sure!

We were in the park for about 3,5 hours I guess. Before we went home, we decided to go and have a look in the Botanical Garden. Ellen has never been there and it was about time to show her the beautiful garden.

After we finished the Botanical Garden we headed home. Ellen walked home, but I had to take the bus. It stopped nearby. And for the next half hour (or a bit less) I was on the phone with Linda. Most of the time we were just complaining on the heat. haha.
