Home is a mess and the light outside is beautiful, so I texted Johan Want me to come over and have lunch with you?.
The answer was YES and I walked through crane city AKA Berlin.
Look, it's Spring for sure! Görlitzer Park.
The colour combo.
Sandra, have a look at this! Johan's latest logo work, I've shown you before.
Johan is my absolute favourite person to eat with. He eats at a slow pace. I get very stressed when I eat with people who are fast eaters.
Also none of us is interested in big portions, so sharing a main dish is sometimes enough. Here is köfte with rice and salad.
Hello, plastic lady!
Such an amazingly beautiful day today.
People sitting outside enjoying the sun.
That was my extra long lunch break, now I'm back in the studio drinking coffee and putting this together :)
A few slippers are available in the shop. I'm so happy, because a couple of customers have told me that my baby slippers are the only ones they've tried that actually stay on the baby's feet.
My messy fridge + my mirror image at friends' toilet ;)
Had a partaki last Friday and thought these magazine titles were amazing together.
The day after the party, I went to the supermarket to buy frozen pizza and met my friend Papuc who had decided she was allowed inside.
Some buttcrack characters are available and these colours of Wrist Worms feel like Spring, those pairs (+ several other) are discounted with €10 and you find them here!
Took that puddle picture yesterday and afterwards I saw the dog on the right side, a dog I met the other night in a bar. I'm not good at remembering human faces, but dogs I remember! And HI JOHAN IN A HURRY!
This is a tiny bit of what I've been up to lately.
Got up this morning and went straight to the supermarket to buy bread.
And took a picture of the smoked garlic Johan's mum gave us.
Spent the day at Gotham Imbiss taking pictures of food and eating it.
Time to make some Wrist Worms and chill. Look, there are quite a few pairs on SALE!
So, what was the tastiest you ate today? That veggie burger above was a real taste explosion!
I made a mango salsa for lunch - a super simple, quick and so delicious side with meat patties, or sausages, or falafel for example (I made my patties of minced meat, salt, pepper, egg, dijon mustard, chili flakes, onion and a bit of heavy cream).
2 fresh or frozen mango
1 red onion
Coriander/Cilantro (as much as you like)
Fresh chili or chili flakes (as much as you like)
Salt (as much as you like)
A pinch of black pepper
1 small teaspoon olive oil
Slice everything into pieces, put in a bowl and mix carefully with a spoon.
Went out for a walk today and gave myself the task Take pictures like you did when you were visiting Berlin.
Now it's time to make a mango salsa, a very spicy one. Yum!
Time for a "recap". This is:
March 3, 1999: My sister in her newly painted toilet & I was crocheting something big.
March 3, 2000: I was taking pictures for a website I was making for mobile services. Made my first logotype, it's still in use. This was when I still lived in Luleå.
March 3, 2001: I had moved to Gothenburg, looked like this and went to Marstrand.
March 3, 2002: Was doing an evening course in graphic design at Forsbergs Skola where I learned more during 2 nights a week for 1.5 years than I did at HDK for 5 years. This is from walking to the tram, in the middle of Gothenburg.
March 3, 2003: Had moved to a new central flat, roaming around the attic.
March 3, 2004: Applying for HDK, which led me to a completely new life. One of the topics was suicide.
March 3, 2005: My kitchen in Gothenburg and the first sandwich cake I made with Johan, when we were still "just" friends :)
March 3, 2006: And BAM I moved to my own flat with the red kitchen. Johan is drinking tea, trying to explain something to me.
March 3, 2007: I had just cut Johan's hair. He looks so young! From the flat we lived in together for many years in Gothenburg, on 34 squaremeters, omg.
March 3, 2008: We went to Luleå to visit my family and play in the snow.
March 3, 2009: Seafood in the kitchen!
March 3, 2010: I had a studio for a year in Gothenburg, before moving to Berlin. Painted the toilet door in this amazing colour.
March 3, 2011: Now we were living in Berlin. On this particular day we walked from Ostkreuz to Westkreuz.
March 3, 2012: This day we walked around in Charlottenburg and Wilmersdorf and had some German food at Kastanie.
March 3, 2013: Seems like this day was a walking day at the beginning of our Berlin career ;) This is somewhere in Kreuzberg or Neukölln, I think.
March 3, 2014: A tour around Mitte with Johan, eating pizza at Clärchens Ballhaus.
March 3, 2015: I met up Johan in Prenzlauer Berg where he was working at the time and took a walk back to Friedrichshain to have some coffee.
March 3, 2016: A morning meeting with Johan when we decided to try a pretty new spot for breakfast. Wasn't very good, you know when the food tastes of the cutting board. The place is closed now.
March 3, 2017: Woke up to sun and will go to my friend's restaurant to take pictures of food in a few hours.
