We have had
almost the same weather today too, exept the sleet has been
replaced with some snow instead. We did not have any snow
from before, so I think that it's nice. It helpes me with my
I have ordered
over 60 Christmas cards, with photos of us. I was happy to
get the Christmas cards today. Then we will have lots of
time to get them into the mail, and send them to our friends
Now I have
read another book:
Lieutenant Jonathan Stride is suffering
from an ugly case of déjà vu. For the second time in a
year, a beautiful teenage girl has disappeared off the
streets of Duluth, Minnesota. Gone without a trace, like a
bitter gust off Lake Superior.
The two victims couldn't be more different.
First it was Kerry McGrath. Bubbly. Sweet sixteen. And now
Rachel Deese. Strange and sexually charged. A wild child.
The media is hounding Stride to catch a
serial killer. But Stride, haunted by personal loss and by
his failure to solve Kerry's murder the year before,
doesn't think the answer is that simple. As he exposes
Rachel's twisted background, he begins to believe that the
truth behind Rachel's disappearance is more complex than
anyone imagines. And more evil.
The search carries Stride from the icy
stillness of the northern woods to the erotic heat of Las
Vegas. And Stride finds his own life changed forever by
the secrets he uncovers.
Secrets that stretch across time in a web
of lies, death, and illicit desire.
Secrets that are chillingly... immoral.
The book was very
exiting, with an surprisingly ending.
The people who are
renting our old appartment, are moving out in January. They have
bought a house by the sea. Now we will try to sell our
appartment again. Two different people have told us that they
are interested in seeing our appartment. We have struggled a lot
with our economy the last year and a half, paying mortage on two
houses, so now we really hope that someone will by the
By the way, I have
got myself a profile on
Facebook. I am not very
active, in there, but if some of you are on
Facebook too, perhaps you
would send an
e-mail to me, and tell me your name, (normally
I only have my net friends first name), and we may find each
Today we have
had a terrible weather. Sleet, wind and rain.
This weekend I
have been on a dancing course. It was very hard to learn a
new way of dancing, but it was very fun.
Today I have
got some Christmas spirit. I have played both my two
CD-records with songs from Christmas in Wienna. We have had
dinner today. Stockfish is traditional
Christmas dish i Norway. Often served with boiled potatoes,
pea stew and fried bacon. I have also been at the attic to
find our advent decoration, and checked that all the lamps
and lights in our advent decorations are working, so that we
will be able to decorate our home for advent, next weekend.
I have also, with some help from Cecilie, been wrapping our
christmas presents, so now the Christmas spirit are coming.
Now all the
snow has melted again, and it's wet and dark again. I hope
that we will get som snow again. Actually I don't like
winter, but now when it is winter, I think that it is better
with real winter weather, with snow, than this dark, wet
winter without snow.
we have been wisiting my sister and her family. They live a
6 hours car ride from us. We enjoyed our stay with them, and
bought some Christmas presents too, while we were there. We
also ordered Cecile's bunad, for her confirmation.
father's day, here in Norway. Happy father's day to all
We have had
nice winter weather for 3 days here. No rain and no wind,
only som snow and partly sunny. But yesterday it was raining
again. Fortunately all the snow did not melt by the rain,
and today it's nice weather again. About zero degreez
Celcius, no rain and no wind.
Some time ago,
I read 3 new books, all written by the same author: Anne B.
When Anna Neshov suddenly suffers a
stroke a week before Christmas and falls into a coma,
her three sons are forced to redefine their own lives
and relate to each other. Erlend works as a decorator in
Copenhagen, Margido owns a small funeral parlour, and
the oldest son, Tor, who is fifty-six, runs the family
farm in Byneset near the city of Trondheim. The brothers
haven't seen each other for years. Tor is the only one
of the three with a child: his daughter Torunn, the
result of a short-lived relationship in his youth.
Torunn has only met her father once before. But now Tor
wants her to come and meet her grandmother before she
dies. The award-winning bestseller Berlinerpoplene
is a novel about trying to tear up one's roots, only to
discover that they run much deeper than expected. It is
also about suddenly uncovering roots that one never knew
I love the 3
books of Anne B. Ragde. It's almost sad that there will only
be 3 books about this family. I would have loved to read
more about them.
we have only been relaxing. I really needed to just do
nothing. Next weekend we are going to wisit my sister and
her family. We are all looking forward to seeing them again.
When we woke
up this morning, it had been snowing a little bit tonight.
The temperature has been about 1 degree below zero Celcius.
We have had no rain and no wind today. It has been wonderful
that we haven't had rain and wind today. We have had bad
weather for about 3 months, now. Even if it's a bit cold,
it's wonderful with the nice weather.
Today I have
been practising after work, and tomorrow it's Thursday, and
my "dancing evening".
Today we have
been wisiting the family who ownes the mother of our new
We are going
to get our new puppy in December.
It takes about
2 1/2 hours to drive from our house to the family who has
the puppies. Here in our town we still have rain and no snow
on the roads. But after driving 1 hour we came to the winter.
There were snow on the roads, and snow everywhere in the
town where our new puppy lives.

This fall we

since August. But we have been enjoying the few days without
