It's nothing much
happening here nowdays. We haven't had snow for a long time, but
we have had much strong wind.
I have been working the
two last Saturday's, and I don't have much energy these days, but,
finally I have finished scrapbooking all our albums, and I am very
pleased with that. I have been very unfortunate and dropped my camera
in the floor, and it was broken, so I will not be able to take photos
until I can afford to buy a new camera. But, for now, I am able to use
my camera on my cellular phone. This camera does not take as good
photos as an ordinary camera, but it's better than nothing.
Yesterday I went
to work from 7 AM to 2 PM. We were 6 ladies at work, and we did
pretty much work, and were satisfied with our day.
In the evening, we
enjoyed Taco for dinner (Cecilie, Joakim, Charles and me).
After working a whole
week, and then working on Saturday too, you get extra tired, so today
I did not want to do much. But I did some scrapbooking, after
breakfast. Then Charles and I went for a walk with our dogs. It's very
cold here today. The temperature is a bit below zero (Celsius), but
there is a very strong wind that makes it very cold. But the sun was
shining, and we put lots of clothes on, so we did not freeze.
I took this photo today
(from the marina) at 2 PM today.
After our walk with the
dogs, I went to the gym. When I came home, Charles had started to
prepare roast of moose (elk) for dinner.
I have posted some
photos of my husband and me.
Yesterday I went
dancing, for the first time in about 2 months.
My foot has been hurting
since November, but the doctor told me that I could try to dance, and
stop if it hurt too much.
I went to dance, and I
was very happy to discover that my foot dit hurt, but not too much, if
I was careful when I was dancing. I did not dance the fastest dances.
Today my foot was not
worse than before I went to dance, and I was very happy to discover
that I was able to dance, without my foot getting worse.
I will try to dance each
Thursday, from now on.
The snow that we
had, is now melted. It's 7 degrees above zero (Celsius), strong
wind and a lot of rain.
Today I have been really
active! I started the day with scrubbing our shower. Then I made some
bread dough, and put it for rising, and went on the gym to practise.
After being at the gym, and taking a shower, did some laundry, and
baked out the breads. They have been rising a lot, so I got 1 bread
more than I use to.
Yesterday i used almost
the entire day tidying in our clothes and washing clothes.
Both mine and the
kids' clothes. It was nice to check out clothes that we can't use
anymore, and tidy up in our drawers and closets. Cecilie was very
helpful, and did this together with me. After this I did some
Then we enjoyed homemade
pizza in the evening!
I have just posted a
couple of photos from
New Years Eve. And,
I have posted some
old birthday photos.
Just now I am sitting
alone with my cup of coffee. I have my computer on my lap and are
enjoying myself. The dogs are relaxing. Cecilie is with some friends,
and Joakim is with a classmate. Yesterday the same kids were wisiting
Cecilie and Joakim.
Charles is working as a
car salesman, and this weekend he has been on a business trip. But the
places he went, made it possible for him to spend a day together with
his sister and brother and their families, which lives a 12-14 hours
car ride from us, (Charles has 6 siblings, and two of them does not
live in the same town as the rest of the siblings), and one day
together with my parents, who lives a 6 hours car ride from us. I am
looking forward to Charles coming home. We are going to enjoy eating
with boiled potatoes, pea stew and bacon, when he comes home.
Today I have
removed all our Christmas decorations, the Christmas tree and
all our Christmas stuff.
It was a bit sad when I
started to pack the Christmas stuff away, but when I finished, it was
very nice to get better space in our living room. It was also lovely
to get rid of all the red stuff. Now we have purple curtains, table
cloths and decorations on our living room, and green in our kitchen. I
used almost 6 hours doing this, and I was very happy when I was
Yesterday it was
cold here. Almost 10 degreez below zero Celsius. But today it is
4 degreez below zero Celsius.
Today we have been
skiing for the first time this winter. We are very lucky to live here.
We put on our ski's at home and went skiing into the woods, nearby our
house. Both Cecilie, Joakim, Charles and me (and our two dogs, of
course), enjoyed the skiing trip very much.
When we came home, the
entire house smelled dried mutton ribs. I had put the dried mutton
ribs on the stove for boiling, before our trip. We are looking forward
dried mutton ribs with mashed swedes for dinner today.
This is Traditional
Christmas food in Norway.
When it is real winter
weather, like we are having now, I have to admit that the winter has
it's charm too.
New Year's Concert from Wienna.
Normally this is not my kind of music, but on New Year's Day, I
like to relax and enjoy the music, played by very talented
musicians and the very beautyful flowers.
Today I have been at
work. It was hard to stand up from my bed, but it will be better,
Now we have gotten LOTS
of snow. I am not sure if I like it, but it's better than if it's
