This morning, I
did some housework, before I went out to put up the
small stone wall.
Now I have expanded
the two "flowerbeds"
into just one big flowerbed, and
made a small stone wall, in front of the flowerbed. I am not finished
yet, but this was all I managed to do, today.
Now I am going to
take a shower. Than we are going to have homemade pizza for
Friday March 30th
afternoon, our nice spring weather disappeared. Today we have
had both sunny weather, cloudy, hail and snow. But,
fortunately, there are no snow on the ground. It has all
melted away again.
Today we all
started our easter holiday. We are not going to work for 10
days. I am looking forward to having time off, for so many
I will probably
be working in our garden, some of the time, if the weather
gets better again. Today we have bought bricks to our
small stone wall. I am not sure if I will get this stone wall
as I hope, but I will post photos of it, no matter how it gets.
day is soon over. After work today, we have been out in our
garden, finishing the "dog yard". We also got a load of
topsoil, delivered by a lorry. Charles put the topsoil on the
lawn, by means of his tractor, by the entrance of our house,
where the lawn was very uneven and bad. When we are sure that
there will be no more frost, we will sow grass, to get a new
Last fall I dug
som plants down in our lawn on the other side of the house, to
take better care of them than to put them into pots and boxes.
I have a photo of the house, with the two "holes" in the lawn,
with stones around, down at
this page. I have
planned to expand these two "flowerbeds" into just one big
flowerbed, and to remove most of the stones, and to make a
small stone wall, in front of the flowerbed. Today I have
tryed to dig up grass and weed, where I want the small stone
wall. I know exactly how I want this to look like, but I am
not sure if I am able to make it this way. But, I must just
try, and than we will see if I succeed in getting it like I
want it to be.
I have created a
page that shows our changes in our garden,
We are still
having the wonderful spring weather that we had last weekend.
Yesterday we got
an organ. We noticed an advertisement, that someone wanted to
give away an organ, for free. We were lucky to get it!
and today, after work, we have been outdoors in our garden the
whole afternoon. But as soon as the sun goes down, it turns
pretty cold. (The sun goes down a few minutes before 8 PM, now.
I have finished the "spring cleaning" in all our flowerbeds.
Now I only have the flower pots left.
Today we have
bought a "dog yard" for Chico. (A sort of fence, so he will
not have to have his shackle on, when he is out in our
garden.) We have been putting it up this afternoon, but we did
not finish. Charles had to go to a meeting. We will finish
I have also
painted around our front door this afternoon. I did not manage
to finish painting around all our windows and our front door,
last fall, so today I started with our front door. This is not
something that I enjoy doing, but it has to be done.
Sunday morning, March
Also today, we
woke up to a wonderful spring weather. It was 11 degreez
Celcius, when we got out of our bed.
Earlier this week I spotted the first Coltsfoot. (This is the first flower
to come, here in Norway, during Springtime.)
My pages of Coltsfoot is
The party last nigth was
very cozy. We eat nice food, cookies and coffee. Then we were dancing
the rest of the night. Today, at 12.00 I am going to participate in
tidying and cleaning the premises we used to our party.
we have turned our clocks one hour forward. (It's Summertime.)
will probably be outdoors, working in our garden today too. We can not
stay indoors, with this lovely spring weather. I am looking forward to
get out, and continue working with the flowerbeds and flower pots.
Charles and Joakim has already went out. Cecilie has 3 friends
sleeping over this night. They are all still asleep. :o)
Another wonderful day is soon over. We have been outdoors the entire
day. (Except for one hour when I was
tidying and cleaning the premises we used to our party, last night.)
The rest of this day, we
have been continued to work in our garden.
Today we have
had a lovely spring weather: Mild and nice, with sun all day.
We have been outdoors, working in our garden the whole day.
Charles and a friend, and Joakim too, has made a parking lot
in our garden. I have posted 3 photos of this,
While "the boys"
made the parking
means of a couple of tractors, I have taken away withered plants, and
put new soil in 3 flowerbeds and 1 flower case. It was very nice to
start with this relaxing garden work again. I still have two
flowerbeds left, and lots of cases and pots. I probably will continue
working with this tomorrow, if the weather stays nice.
I am dancing a lot,
these days: At Thursday, I danced for two hours, like I use to do at
Thursdays. At Friday, I went to a dancing course, and tonight we are
going on a party, together with all the people who uses to come to the
dancing evenings at Thursdays. The dancing club is celebrating it's
10th anniversary this year, and we are having a dancing party to
celebrate it, tonight.
when I was going to let Chico get out, I got a big surprise
when I opened the front door: Two elks (or mooses) was
standing on our lawn! The elks saw us, and ran away. I was
shaky for a long time after this, but at the same time, I
think it's a bit fun too. I sneaked out, when they had gotten
far off, and took a picture of one of the elks. Actually the
elks was a bit too far off. I did not get a good picture of
them, when they was too far off. :o)
We have a lovely
spring weather nowdays. But it's a bit cold. 2-3 Celcius below
zero in the morning.
vernal equinox. This is the time in the spring when the day
and night are of equal length.
Sunday March 18th
Joakim and I
vere outdoors for 3 hours this morning, cleaning up outside
our house. I have also put 15 tulip bulbs into this case:
I am exited to
see if there will be any tulips here. I am not sure if I have
done this too early. It's only 1-2 degreez Celsius here. But,
now it's done. We will just have to wait and see.
I have also
sowed Lobelia today. But the Lobelia seeds will be keept
indoors, until we are sure that there will be no more cold and
snow. I have never tryed to sow before, so it will be exiting
to see if there will be any flowers out of the seeds.
Saturday March 17th
raining, and sleeting, here. No nice Spring weather. But, we
gets some hope that there will be Spring soon, when we take a
look in the flower beds:
there is a trade fair, here. Charles is working there, as a
watch. Joakim is there too, together with Charles. Cecilie is
having a friend on wisit. She has stayed overnight. They have
been singing at Cecilies SingStar, and having a cozy time.
Later in this morning, I am going to drive them to the town.
I have a lot of
housework waiting, but I will have a moment at my computer
before I do the housework.
These cute Mini
Narcisses is standing in our kitchen window:
morning it stopped raining, and the sun came. :o)
I went out, in
the nice weather, to clean up in our garden and front yard.
Charles and Joakim helped me, when they came home. Se photos
together with her friend, this afternoon. She is going to stay
overnight to her this night.
Wednesday March 14th
Today we heard a bird called
"Tjeld", for the first time this year.
My work is by the ocean, and
we heard the Tjeld outside our windows at work, this morning.
I am so happy that I have
this wonderful view from my windows at work:
Today it's wednesday, and I
have been working out, at our training room at work.
Wednesday is also Cecilies
day at the riding course, so she has been riding today.
During the past
few days, we have had a lot of rain and wind. All the snow hss
melted away. I really hope that there will be no more snow,
and that the Spring will be warm and nice.

We have just bought ourselves a new computer. It seems that we
have not gotten all the programs and everything in it's place.
The photos will not show at my Web Site. We just have to try to
fix this, but I don't know what's wrong. I hope that we will
figure it out soon. I am sorry that the photos will not show,
The trip, yesterday, went well. I took this pickture with my
mobil telephone, during the trip:

Today it's a lovely sunny winter weather, but I have used this
