My mothers mother's 90 years
anniversary party was a very nice party. All the guests were
having a wonderful time, and enjoyed delicious food, and nice
company with each other.
When we came home, after the
weekend, I found my Meconopsis flowering!
Blue Meconopsis is the most
beautyful perennial I know, and I am so happy to have it in my
After work today,
I drove Joakim to a track where he drove hit ATV, just like I
did the last two Wednesday's. The first Wednesday was very cold,
and I had to wear winter clothes. The second Wednesday it was
very hot, and I only wore a bikini top and a summer skirt. Today
it was cold again, and it was back to the winter clothes again.
Thuesday I had a nice day in the garden. I have made a new
flowerbed. I am going to put only white flowers in this
flowerbed, and I am very exited to see how it is going to look
like, next summer, when the flowers have grown bigger.
At Friday, we are travelling to
wisit our family, who lives a 6 hours car ride from us. My
mothers mother turned 90 years yesterday, and she is going to
celebrate her birthday this weekend. I am looking forward to see
all our relatives again, both my parents and sisters with their
families, and my other relatives that I have not seen for a long
Now it's several days since
I have been working in our garden. But today I have been
finishing my latest project, with the flowerbed around the area
with the sour soil bed. Now I have finished this flowerbed, but
I have not got enough flowers in the flowerbed yet. I have
plannned to only have white flower in this flowerbed.
During the last few days there
have been awfully much dandelion seeds in the air!
In all our flowerbeds there are lots of dandelion seeds.
It's so much that it makes me want to vacuum-clean the flower
But that's not possible. I have tried to blow the seeds out of
the flowerbeds, but if I get rid of 20 seeds, it comes 50 new
seeds flying in the air. I belive that I just will have to wait
until the dandelion seeds sprout, and then sift the weed out.
This is probably going to take very long time!
Today I was working for several hours with the new flowerbed.
Just when I had finished, it started to rain.
Now we have had wonderful Summer weather for many days, so we
needed some rain, but I hope that it will not rain "for ever",
like it uses to do, here. We really wish to get some sunny
This entire Spring I have been worried about a small tree that I
bought last year:
I just love this little tree!
But during the entire May, the tree did not get any leaves. I
was worried that the tree did not survive the winter. But a few
days ago, I discovered several leaves on the small tree!
I was very happy! I really hope that I will get this tree big
Thursday June 5th
We have a wonderful weather nowdays. Sun, no wind and 20
But, I have busy days. After work there has been parents
meetings for both Cecilie and Joakim's classes at school. And
there are more to come. But, I am so very happy about our nice
weather. We are not used to warm and nice weather very often,
in our part of our country. So, now when we are blessed with
so warm and nice weather, we are very grateful about it, after
a long cold Fall, Winter and Spring. It's only a week since I
went to the track with Joakim, so he could drive his ATV. I
wore warm shoes, warm socks, 3 pair of trousers, 1 sweather
and 2 jackets, and warm gloves. After watching Joakim for 2
hours, I was cold, in spite of all my clothes. Yesterday I was
at the track together with Joakim, again. Yesterday I only
wore a summer skirt and a bikini top, and I did not freeze at
all. It was very warm! Wonderful! It's a bit strange that the
weather can change that fast.
Now it's less than 3 weeks until our Summer holiday in Turkey!
This will be my second trip to Turkey. Cecilie and Joakim have
never been to such a warm country before, and we are all
looking very much forward to this holiday. We are going to
stay for 2 weeks. It's going to be wonderful to come to Turkey
and to enjoy the sunny warm weather, bathing, the sights, food and

A few weeks ago,
Charles bought a motorcycle. Today I went for a ride together
with him. I have not been riding a motorcycle often during my
life, and I thought it was a bit scary. But I loved it too. It
was both a bit scary, and very funny!
