Today we have had fantastic winter weather. 2
degreez below zero Celsius and sunshine the entire day. Unfortunately I have
been working overtime today, so I was not able to enjoy the entire day, but I
started to work early (at 6.40 AM), so I was finished at work at 1.40 PM. When I
came home from work, I took Chico for a long walk in the nice weather. Charles
had been out, skiing together with Rex when I was at work. I really enjoyed my
walk with Chico. The sun was shining, and it was lovely to walk in the nice
weather. Here is a photo I took, during my walk:
We still have winter weather here, but we are
all longing for spring.
Today Joakim and I have been in a meeting with
Joakim's teacher at school. This is something that we do, two times a year. I
was happy to hear positive stuff from Joakim's teacher.
Tomorrow it's Thuesday, and I am going to dance,
like I use to do on Thuesday's.
Normally I don't go to work, during weekends,
but on Saturday, i will probably work overtime. I am working in a state company,
and our boss has asked us to work, on Saturday, if we want to. I have been
working 3 Saturday's this year, and I belive that this will be my last Saturday
at work, for a very long time. i am tired, and need the weekend's to relax.
I wish you all a happy weekend!
On Thuesday evening I went dancing, like I use
to do on Thuesday's.
While Cecilie and Joakim went for a Valentines
Day's ball at their school. They had a great time!
Cecilie and Joakim also went out to enjoy
themselves yesterday too. They went to our lokal Theatre. They were very happy
about their evening.
We have had wonderful winter weather the entire
February. Today our town has decided to arrange a skiing contest in the middle
of the main street in the town. Last night lots of trucks dumped ton's of snow
in the main street, and Charles is going to use the athletic's club's machine to
make skiing tracks on the snow.
It's a pity we have gotten so much rain today.
I belive that not so many people will participate in the skiing contest when
it's raining so much.
All this rain will probably make most of the
snow to disappear. If this happends, I hope that we will have no more snow. I am
longing for spring! But, it's only February, so I believe it's to early. But one
We have got a lot of snow the last few days.
And it is still snowing. We have a very large yard, and we have a rather long
road from the main road and up to our yard, so I am very happy that we have a
tractor that Charles uses to shovel the snow away from our yard.
This weekend I am going to learn a new dance.
The dancing course was both yesterday, it is today and it is tomorrow too. I
don't know the English word for this dance, but if you wish to see someone who
is dancing this kind of dance, it's a video here:
It's not easy, but I hope that I will learn
this dance, after some practising.
This morning we had a pretty sunrise. This
photo is taken from our house. I love our view.
Today it's Valentine's Day, and I wish you all
a wonderful Valentine's Day.
After the dancing course, Charles and I went
skiing with Chico and Rex in the woods by our house.
In the evening, the entire family enjoyed
Now we have got very, very much snow, so we do
have real winter weather! But the temperature is about zero degrees (Celsius),
so it is not that cold.)

Norway's birthday. (My pages about Norway's birthday are
Ika surprised me with giving me
this sigtag as a gift! Isn't she cute! Thank
you so VERY much, Ika!
Yesterday's party was really funny!
It's a very long time since I have been laughing so much that I
did yesterday. And the food was delicious.
Today it's Mother's Day in Norway,
and I have gotten both Mother's Day's cake, and a package.
Charles has been helping Cecilie and Joakim to buy this Mother's
I was very happy and surprised
when I got a package too, with a brand new digital camara! I
have been sad about dropping my camera in the floor so it was
broken. I am going to take really good care of my new camera!
My Mother's Day's
pages are here
I have called my own mother today, and congratulated her with
her Mother's Day. Since we are living a 6 hours car ride from my
parents, we are not able to wisit them so often as we want to.
But, it's nice to be able to call them instead.
Charles and I have been at the cemetery today, and put an
outdoor candle light in his parents grave. After doing this, on
our way home we spottet 3 row deers and two mooses (elks).
Today we are going to celebrate
Mother's Day with homemade pizza for dinner.
We still have got the snow, and
since Thursday the temperature has been from 7 to 10
degrees below zero.
Today is the first Saturday in 4 weeks that I am not at work.
The last 3 Saturday's I have been working overtime. But, the
last few days I have been very tired and worn out, so today I
decided not to go to work. We have a wonderful winter weather
today, with 7 degrees below zero and lightly cloudy weather.
Real winter weather! It's so beautyful when the sun is coming
out from the clouds from time to time, shining on the snow.
Here are a couple of photos taken today, when Charles and I went
for a walk in the woods with our dogs:
Beautyful winter weather.
Chico and I in the wood.
In my blog at January 28th, I wrote that I dropped my camera in
the floor, and it was broken. The photos I have posted lately is
taken with my cellular phone, or with an old camera that we used
several years ago. I have never been very satisfied with this
old camera, but when I started to use it, now, I belive that the
picktures turned ut nice. Bright and clear.
Tonight Charles and I are going to an annual party arranged by
the athletic club. We are going to enjoy buffet supper. I am
sure it's going to be a nice evening.
Yesterday it started to snow. Now
we have got 10-20 centimeters of snow already! We haven't had
snow for alomost a month. I have to admit that it is beautyful
with the newly fallen snow, but the Spring person in me, longs
for Spring and warmer weather.
Cecilie came home from the trip together with her class
on Sunday evening, after driving by bus for almost 10 hours! She
have had a wonderful and fun trip, from Thuesday to Sunday.
About 50 students at the age of 15-16 years, and about 5-6 grown
ups. (No teachers, only parents.) The trip will become a memory
for life, for Cecilie.
Today I god a very cute and sweet
Kia! This cute Valentines girl.
Thank you SO much,
Yesterday we had a very mild day.
Almost like Spring! It was no wind, sunny and 8 degreez Celsius!
(We haven't had snow for a long time.) I was working from 7 AM
til 2 PM, yesterday, but when I was finished at work, I walked
from my work and home. This took about 35 minutes, and I had a
nice walk in the sun. When I came home I started doing some
Then Charles, Joakim and I went
for a walk with our dogs. Cecilie is not at home. She has been
on a trip together with her class from Thuesday to Sunday. She
will be coming home during the evening, tonight.
Today we woke up to another
lovely day, but today it was colder than yesterday. (About 2
degreez below zero, Celsius.) I continued doing housework
Later in the day, Charles and I
went for a walk with Rex and Chico in the woods and up on a
small mountain. It's nice for the dogs to run free some times
and not have to be in their leash all the time.
I took several photos during our
walk today, but the photos of the dogs, did not turn our well.
The dogs was running all the time, and all the photos I took
of them, was not good. But here are some of the other photos I
Click on the photos to see them
in full size:
On our way down from the
mountain, Rex found himself a moose (elk) and run away (Rex is
a sporting dog, and when Charles uses him for hunting, he is
supposed to do this, but there is not hunting time in Norway
now). It took us about one hour to find Rex and the moose, but
we heard him all the time. He was barking at the moose all the
time. This kind of sporting dog is supposed to do this, and
Charles was very happy to discover that Rex was doing what he
was supposed to do, without any training. When Charles found
Rex and the moose, Rex did not feel like coming, but finally
he went over to Charles, and the moose could run away. Happy
to get rid of the annoying, barking dog.
When we found Rex, he and the
moose was standing by the sea, to the left on this photo.
Charles was very happy about
this incident with Rex and the moose. He got a proof that Rex
knows how to do this, without any training. Charles uses Rex
during the hunt, (which is during Fall, each year), and now he
knows that Rex will do his job, during the hunt, even if he is
a young dog, yet.
When we came home from our walk,
both Charles and the dogs lie down and relaxed a bit, while I
was sitting down with my computer. But, now I am going to take
a shower, before we start with our dinner. Today we are going
to enjoy stockfish
served with boiled potatoes, pea
stew and fried bacon. Yum-yum.
