We have sunny
weather today too, but it's blowing a strong wind. But, as
long as we don't have any rain, I am happy.
Today I have
finished the new flowerbed. (More photos
This weekend I
have finished reading the last book of Joy Fielding, Mad River
Road. Joy Fielding is one of my favourite writers, and she did
not dissapoint me this time either. The book was very exiting!
After spending a
year in prison, Ralph has explicit plans for his first night
of freedom: tonight, someone will be held accountable. He goes
to murderous lengths to learn the address of his former wife -
the woman he blames for his fate and has sworn vengeance
against. Determined to bring her to his idea of justice,
Ralph's next step is to travel from Florida to Ohio to find
his ex-wife's house on Mad River Road.
Also in Florida, Jamie Kellogg wakes from an agonizing
nightmare of her mother's funeral and assesses her life: a
twenty-nine-year-old woman in a dead-end job, with an
ex-husband in Atlanta, a married lover in the hospital, and a
virtual stranger in her bed. But this stranger is everything
the previous men in her life were not: tender, attentive, and
adventurous. After convincing Jamie to quit her miserable job
and ditch her judgmental, perfectionist sister, he proposes a
romantic getaway. Jamie wonders if this thrilling man might
finally be her Prince Charming, as he whisks her away down a
daring new path.
Tonight we had a
very nice sunset. I took this photo of our barbeque house at 7
Finally a day
with nice weather again. But it's not warm enought to go
outdoors without a jacket. We do have Fall here, now.
Today I have
been outdoors the entire day. I have been working with my
project in our garden. This takes a very long time. Among
other things, I am going to dig down som big stones into our
lawn, around the area were we have the large flowerbed with "sour
soil". The former owners of our house, had lots of trees in
this area, so where I am digging, there are lots of roots in
the soil, and the digging takes long time.
home from his moose hunt last night. They have gotten 3 out of
the 4 animals that they were supposed to get.
My birthday was
very nice. I enjoyed it very much. I got some money from my
collegues. I used this money to buy some tulip bulbs, and two
bushes so that I am able to make the hedge by the barbeque
house bigger. This kind of bushes are very expencive, so I
only bought two, this time. The tulips I bought, are supposed
to flower early Spring, so I hope that they will have flowers
on, to Cecilie's confirmation, early May, next year.
On the evening,
(at my birthday), I went to dance, like I use to do, each
Thursday. I got to dance a lot, and I really enjoyed the

birthday! I have created some pages about my 40th birthday

evening I made a coffee bread ring that I will bring to my
work. Actually I mad two, so that we will have one at home,
and enjoy there, Cecilie, Joakim and I.
Charles is still
at the hunt, so it will only be the kids and I. But since we
celebrated my birthday in May, I think it's perfectly okey. I
am going to dance in the evening, like I do every Thursday,
and Cecilie is going to swim, like she is doing every
Thursday. But, we will take time to celebrate a bit, and enjoy
the coffee bread ring first.
Now we have had
almost 2 days with nice warm weather, but, the weather
forecast has told us that we will have cold and rainy weather
and I went to
practise, again. And today
the moose hunt started, and Charles went to hunt, together
with several of his friends.
Some days ago, I
bought 40 hedge bushes, which I dig
down in our lawn. Today I bought another 10, and dug these hedge
bushes down in the lawn too.
We had a very
nice evening together with our friends in our
barbeque house yesterday.
Today, I have
been working a bit out in our garden. The weather is not nice.
It's cold and rainy, but if I want something to be done in the
garden, I can't wait for the nice weather. Nobody knows when
we will get nice weather again. Now it has been raining for
almost 2 months.
we have been wisiting our nephew who was celebrating his 6th
Charles is going
to hunt for moose this Fall too. He is leaving tomorrow
evening. He used the rest of this evening to pack lots of warm
clothes for the hunt.
came home from the camp school yesterday. He has had a very
nice stay there. Cecilie also went to the same camp school
with her class 2 years ago. She also enjoyed staying there.

Today we are going to inaugurate our barbeque house. Some
friends and their kids are coming over to us. We are going to barbeque
some moose meat in the barbeque house. We are looking forward
to have a nice time in our new barbeque house.

be clever and go to this practising each Monday.

They are staying there from Monday to Friday. Cecilie also
went to this camp school two years ago. She enjoyed her stay
there very much. Joakim is also looking forward to the trip. I
just hope that they will have nicer weather than we have had
the last weeks.
were out in our garden, most of the day, despite the bad
weather. (It was a strong wind, and lots of rain, yesterday.) In Norway we have a saying: "There is no bad weather,
only bad clothes". (With that we mean that we have not excuse
not to go outdoors, even if the weather is bad. You just have
to put on enough clothes, and than you can go outdoors.)
working on our barbeque house, while I was organizing a new
this area in our
garden. I also put a bush into the soil. This bush,
has been in a box with soil for over a year. I am happy that I
got it into the soil, so that the bush does not have to be in
the box for another winter.
Cecilie made our
homemade pizza this Saturday evening. The pizza was delicious!
Today there is a
presentation church service for all the children who are going
to be confirmated next spring. Cecilie and I are going
to there soon.
afternoon, we are going to a birthday party to our niece.
Before we went
to the birthday party, today
we finished painting the barbeque house. But the fence is not
finished, and the terrace boards are not painted ether. It's
possible that we will wait until next year with this. (Photo

We still have not sold our
old appartment, but yesterday someone moved in. They are going
to rent it, but we hope that they perhaps will buy it, after a
Yesterday I started practising
again, after our brake, during Summer.
We are some ladies who use to
practise each Wednesday, after work. It was hard to start practising
again, but it was very good, after we finished. When I came home, I
went to the market garden and bought 40 hedge bushes, which I dig
down in our lawn.
The new small hedge
bushes to the left in the photo.
Our barbeque house is not finished
yet. Some parts were missing. But we have contacted the firm that we
bought the barbeque house from, and we hope that we will get the
parts missing, soon.
Tonight it's my dancing evening.
Last Thursday, I went to a meeting at school, for Joakim's klass, so
last Thursday, I did not dance, so I am looking forward to dance
This week it
has been lots of rain and cold weather.
continued working with our barbeque house on the evenings,
after work. But because of the bad weather, he has painted
the walls (before the barbeque house is put up), in our
outhouse. He has also put together some of the roof, to make
it easier when he is going to put up the house.
I have posted
photo on our
barbeque house page.

terrible weather here today. It is pouring rain!
Even if it's
pouring rain, Charles is very clever, working with the
terrace which we are going to have under the barbeque house.
