I hadn't been at Nyfiket since Christmas and the trip to the USA, but last Tuesday I went back there. Hulda opted to stay home with [livejournal.com profile] thette, but as soon as I was to pay for my soup the guy manning the counter asked me if I had any more Joe Hill songs to sing. I had to tell him no, since I did Martin Q Larson's "Jag vill bo i rymden" and Nils Ferlin's "En valsmelodi" instead. A kid there that Hulda had played with there earlier also asked for her.

This week Hulda and I had a quick dinner at home before heading out again. After they had rigged the scene I opened with "Rymden är stor" (my translation of Chris Malme's "Space Is Big"), and Hulda immediately joined me on scene to do the actions. Then "Jag vill bo i rymden" again, since it had become a favourite of Hulda's friend. I rounded out the theme of the night with "Satellitsången". And just a minor flub in "Jag vill bo i rymden"!

Another singer (with guitar) had come along, so he went up and did three songs as well after me. And Hulda checked my songbook on the train home and wanted to sing "Ditt hem är fandom" as we walked from the station. She's starting to turn into quite the fan.

Note for next week: get to the library in Huskvarna and borrow their copy of Joe Hills sånger.
