When we woke up
today, it was raining a lot and blowing a very strong wind.
Today is my 41st
birthday, and I have planned to use this day to tidy in a big closet,
in our hall,
and then do some scrapbooking. I am so glad that my birthday is
today, when it's weekend. After tidying in the closet, I am
going to just do fun stuff, and enjoy myselv.
I have got
from my internet friends!
Here you can see a
photo of me on my 2 years birthday, together with my mom:
and Rex is away, for moose hunt, so it's only Cecilie,
Chico and me at home. Later today we will enjoy ourselves,
and get into "birthday mood".
Today the moose
hunt (elg hunt) started in Norway, and lots of hunters are in
the woods. Charles is on moose hunting this year too, like he
uses to do, but this year, Joakim also went together with
Charles. They also brought Rex (who is a white elk dog, and are
meant to be used on elk hunt). Rex did very good during the hunt
today, when they shot one moose.
Joakim and Rex are on moose hunt, I went to dance, tonight,
while Cecilie went
to swim, together with her friends.
Earlier today i
spottet the first migratory birds on their way to warmer
countries. Now, there is no doubt that there is Fall.
On Saturday I am
turning 41 years old, but I don't belive that I will celebrate
my birthday. It's not very important to me. Joakim and Charles
are away, for moose hunt. I have got a nice bike from Charles as
a birthday gift. I use my bike as often as possible. I cycle to
work, eath time when the weather is nice. Charles has also
bought clothes for me, to use when I am sitting on the
motorcycle with Charles, so now I have warm and safe clothes to
wear. Here you can see a photo of Charles with his motorcycle:
I hope that the
weather will be better, so that Charles and Joakim will have
nice weather on their moose hunt. If not, they have brought lots
of warm clothes, so they will not get wet or freeze.
Yesterday it was
raining the entire day. I miss the sun. But I am very happy that
some of the flowers in our garden are still blooming.
Today is my
parents 42nd anniversary. Happy anniversary, mom and dad! See
some photos of my parents

We have had
wonderful weather the entire September, but on Friday, it
started to rain. We got some rain yesterday too, but today, it's
cloudy, but no rain yet. (It's 11 AM, now.)
On Friday, I went
on a shopping trip, together with 4 friends. We drove by car for
3 hours, to get to the town, and 3 hours, back again. We had
lunch on a cafeteria, and dinner on a pizza restaurant. We
started to drive at 7 AM in the morning, and was home at 10 PM
in the evening. Tired but very happy.
Charles and I used
the entire day, yesterday, clearing up and moving some
furnitures in a room, where we have a computer, a couple of
cabinets and two freezers. It was wonderful to get better space
in this room. In addition to this, we put up a new lamp in the
living room, that I bought on my shoppingtrip on Friday. As
usual on Saturday's, we enjoyed a delicious homemade pizza in the evening.
Wonderful weather today too!
This morgning I
did some housework. I like to do most of my housework on
Saturday mornings. Often I am very tired after work, but on
Saturday morning, I am rested, and ready for some housework.
Later today, we
received a visit from my internet friend,
Lillian, and her
husband, Inge. Earlier this Summer,
to wisit Lillian. (See Monday July 21st).
Here is a photo of
Lillian and me, in our garden:
We had a
nice time together with Lillian and Inge. We were sitting on our
terrace, drinking coffee and tea, and went for a little walk in
Lillian and Inge!
Now the time is
4.30 PM, and Charles and Joakim is out, driving motorbike, while
Cecilie is wisiting to girls in her class. They are going to
sleep in a tent in their garden tonight.
Soon I will start
to make pizza. I am looking forward to homemade pizza tonight.
The weather is
still very nice (but we don't have Summer temperatures now). I
am using my new bike to get to my work, as often as I am able
yesterday, my collegues and I went to a huge marble and
It was very
exiting to see this. Notice how small the excavators looks! (My
photo does not show the entire area. It is much larger than this.)
After that they have finished working with and area, they fill
it up, and plantes new trees there, to make it look nice again.
It was overwhelming to drive by bus in this huge marble and
In this same area
as the marble and limestone quarry, the nature is beautyful, and
I took several photos:
After wisiting the
marble and limestone quarry, we drove to a place where we got
dinner in an old barn. The barn was renovated, and looked real
They have kept
most of the fixtures from the old barn, and just painted it. It
was a very cheerful atmosphere in the old barn.
Now it's Friday
afternoon, and I am happy it's weekend. Now I am on my way out
on our terrace, to enjoy a cup of coffee in the sun.
We woke up to
sunny weather this morning (about 12 degreez Celcius). I have
just had my breakfast, and are now sitting by my computer with a
cup of coffee.
A couple of days
ago, I read a book written by Camilla Läckberg (a Sweedish
writer). A couple of weeks ago, I read another two books written
I really love
Camilla Läckberg's books. She writes exiting criminal stories,
and we are able to get to know the policeman who is working with
the cases, and we are also getting to know his wife and baby,
and their friends, and his collegues. We follow the same
policestation in each book, so we really learnes to know the
persons. All 3 of her books is just the way I like them. I will
try to buy more of her books, later. Camilla Läckberg has turned
into one of my favourite writers.
I don't have much
planes for this day. I will do some housework, and then just
enjoy a good book, and have a cup of coffee or five, out
in the garden.
On Wednesday, it was raining here, the entire day, on Thuesday
and Friday, we have had a lovely weather. Sunshine and the sea
was a dead calm, but it still is cold at night. In the morning
it is often only 1-2 degreez Celsius.
Wednesday, we started practicing again, like we use to do on
Wednesday's (but we don't practice during Summer). It was hard to
start to practice again, but I belive it's good for my body.
Thursday, I went to dance again.
I have not done much
this weekend. Some housework, reading and relaxing.
Tonight we have enjoyed
Taco for dinner.
Both yesterday and
today we have had nice weather, but it's not warm. In the
morning it was only 2 degreez Celsius, but I bicycled to work,
in spite of the cold temperature. Later in the day it gets
warmer, and on my bicycle trip back home, it's not cold. I love
my new bike, and enjoy to use it, the 15 minutes it takes to
bicycle from our house to my work.
For a long time,
we have been planning to put up a terrace by our flagstaff.
Today Charles started to dig where we are going to put it up. We
have a tractor, and Charles used the tractor to dig. I have
created a new page with
photos from our new
