More tests & Winter is back again

This is what I call a snowstorm, even if it was a small one. It came upon us last Friday, stayed overnight and since then, weather has been extremly cold. Wonderful but cold. Record-breaking cold in fact. Scania rarely sees temperatures below minus 17 degrees centigrade (1.4 F) but this last week we've had temperatures at minus 25 degrees centigrade (-13 F). That's colder than the last record set during 1943-1944.

On the other hand, ever since Sunday, weather has been just wonderful with a lot of sunshine. To get out at eight o'clock in the morning and wait for CartoonBoy's school bus is a real treat. I know, it sounds silly having these temperatures but no wind, lot's of snow and a bright sky makes one feel that Spring is on it's way. Usually we have one long Fall and then suddenly it's Summer.

Speaking of Fall, remember that English class I took last semester? Remember I took the test in mid-February? Guess what? I GOT THE PwHH! Yay! I'm quite proud of myself.

And, speaking of tests, I'm having two of them today, Swedish and Social studies. I don't have to take both tests today, but I can't decide which one to postphone. I think I'm going to take Social studies test first and, if there's enough time left, I'll take the Swedish test too. My (very much) younger classmates think I'm crazy. Maybe I am.

Congrad's on passing with honors, I knew you would do well! (do you want to take my GMAT test? I hate it!).

Sunshine always makes things better. But warm air also helps.
Congrats on the test - keep going!

Not crazy, just diligent and conscientious!

Congrats on the English class and wishing you high marks on the Social Studies and Swedish exams, too!

Is PwHH "pass with high honors?" That's what I'm going to assume it is: muy excellente for you! Good luck on the others.

Virginia Gal: Thank you! I'd take the test but first you have to tell me what the test is about. :)

JoeinVegas: Thank you! Yes, the sun really helps the mood to go up.

Francesca: Thank you to you to and hugs to go with that. :)

Molly Malone: Yes, PwHH is, I believe, the equivalence to A++. And thank you. :)
