Tirsdag 29. juli
We had wonderful summer
weather yesterday too, but late yesterday night, the fog came, and it
is still here. But the weather forecast said it willl be nice weather
tomorrow. I hope that we will get the sun back.
Tomorrow I am
not going to work. My vacation started today. I am going to stay at
home and pack for our trip tomorrow, so that we are able to leave when
Charles finishes his work. We are going to see my parents at their
cottage. I have lots of photos at
this page, from our trips to
my parents cottage, during the last years.
We have not
been at their cottage this year, so we are very much looking forward
to this, the entire family.
today, I have "changed color" in our living room. I have not painted,
but I have changed curtains, candles, cloths and runners. We have had
beige curtains with big red flowers on, and red decorations until now.
I think that some times I get a bit tired of the red color. But today
I put up pale pink curtains, and almost all of the pink decorations
that we used on the tables in Cecilie's confirmation. I bet I am going
to be tired of the pink too, but then I just can change the colors
We are still blessed with wonderful summer weather. This is the 4th
day with sun and warm weather. Both Sunday, yesterday and today (after
work) we enjoyed the day in our garden and on our terrace, just
relaxing in the sun.
On Friday we are taking some vacation again. I am going to have one
week of vacation and Charles, who was ill when we went to Turkey, are
going to take two weeks of vacation now.
Finally we got nice
weather again. Today we have had over 20 degreez Celcius, and sunny
weather. I have been out in our garden the entire day.
This morning we spottet
two moose's from our bathroom window. It's not often we see the
moose's that near our house. It was exiting to watch them.
Yesterday I bought a
Rhododendron, which I dug down in the flowerbed today. I had to remove
another plant, to get some space for the Rhododendron. I cut the plant
that I dug up, in two pieces, and gave one of the pieces to a friend
of mine, who also loves gardening, like me. (She also got some other
plants from our garden.)
I got several other
plants from my friend, in return for the plants I gave her. We had a
very nice time, first walking in her garden, and then we did the same
in our garden. Walking and watching all the flowers. Learning from
each other, how to arrange the flowerbeds.
Tonight I made pizza
which we (Charles, Cecilie, Joakim and I) enjoyed in our terrace at 9
PM in the evening, with the sun still shining. It was very nice that
we finally got some sun and warm weather again.
When I came home from
work today, it was raining, but I went our in our garden, anyway.
During the evening it stopped to rain, and we got to see the sun, now
and then. Perhaps we will have sunny weather tomorrow.
Last summer we bought a small red Acer tree. (I have a photo of it
Take a look at June 14th). During the winter it was very reduced. I
belive that our winters, here, is a bit too strong and cold for our
Acer tree. That's why I decided to put the small red Acer tree in a
pot, together with some Semperviwum. Now I can put the small tree
indoors, in our garage, during the winter, and then put it out in our
garden next spring.
Monday July 21st
This weekend we have had a wonderful Summer weather. When we woke up
this morning, the weather was still wonderful, but during the morning,
the fog came, and it went cold and windy. I had to put on warm clothes
when I came home from work.
During the weekend, we have enjoyed the nice weather and spent lots of
time outdoors. I have been working in the garden, and Charles was
working with changing our garage door.
At Saturday I went to see my internet friend
Lillian, who lives in the
It was very nice to see
Lillian again. We sat on her terrace, enjoying the lovely weather with
ice cream, waffles and fresh berries. I was happy to see Lillian and
her husbands lovely garden and their fantastic aquarium.
In the evening we barbequed fish, in our barbeque house, that Charles
had been fishing.
The nice weather continued at Sunday too. I had to do some housework
before I went out in our garden, this day too.
I have posted
a new photo of
After work today, I have
been buying some new hedge bushes. Some of our hedge bushes died last
winter, and I have bought some new ones, to replace the ones who died.
It is raining now, and I am not sure if I will go out and dig them
down in the soil today, or parhaps I will see if the weather is better
tomorrow, and do it then.

Monday July 14th
Today was my first
day at work, after 3 weeks with vacation. I did not look very
much forward to this day, but it was much better than expected.
Now I are going to work for 3 weeks, and than I have one more
week with vacation, again.
Today I have posted some photos from our
holiday in Turkey! Take a look, here.
Saturday July 12th
Now we are back
from our holiday in Turkey! We have had 14 nice days there, but
our trip did not turn out the way we had planned.
Charles was ill, a
few days before we were supposed to leave. He had to go to
hospital, with some trouble with his gall bladder and
innflammation in his stomach. We were considering to cancel the
trip for the entire family, but in the end, we decided that only
Cecilie, Joakim and I would go.
But a few day's
before we were supposed to go, I got toothache. The dentist told
me I had periodontitis. He started to fix my tooth, and gave me
penicillin treatment, in case I would get pain during our
holiday. Everything went well, until we had 5 days left of our
holiday. Luckily I had the penicillin. In addidion to this,
Joakim had some trouble with his stomach for several days, and
Cecilie had to go to a doctor in Turkey, because she got an
infection in her urin way.
But execpt from
the fact that Charles could not come with us, this time, and our
days with illness, we are agree that we have had a nice holiday.
We have been bathing, sun bathing, shopping, enjoying delicious
food, been on a boat trip and also on Quad safari (safari where
we drowe 4 wheel motorbikes). We also learned to know the staff
at our hotell, and some other Turkish people who were working
near our hotel. We also learned a few Turkish words from them.
and Cecilie in the pool.
we agree that we have had a nice holiday, in spite of everything,
we also agree that we are not going on another holiday without
home on Thuesday afternoon, and have been at home for 4 days.
Our luggage is unpacked and our laundry is washed. Now I have to
take care of the garden. Lots of weed has found it's place in
our flowerbeds. We have a wonderful weather here today, and I
have planned to work in our garden today.
