We have had rainy weather for several days, and I haven't been
out in our garden for a while, but today it's cloudy, but no

flowerbed with sour soil,
flowerbed with perennials and the
flowerbed by the flaggstaff.
Today I am going out in our garden again. I have to dig up
some grass from our flowerbed. I have to do this as soon as
possible so that the grass will not be able to spread over the
Later today, and tomorrow morning, I will make some cakes.
Tomorrow is, Charles, my hubby's, birthday.
During the afternoon, the clouds disappeared and the sun came!

He he. Barbara wanted to see a photo of me, after I have been
at the hairdresser.
I don't like
to take picktures of myself, but, ok.
And here it is. (Scroll down at the page to the date's May
17th and May 2nd, to see how I looked like before I cut my
Today we have had rainy weather for the first time for a very
long time. It was very good for the garden to have some rain,
but I have to admit that I enjoy sunny weather much better
than rainy weather. During the afternoon it stoppet raining,
and we got som clouds and some sun.
During the entire weekend we have had nice weather, but a very
cold wind. I have been out in our garden all the time. I love
gardening, and really enjoyed myslelf.

At May 20th, I went to the hairdresser. I wanted to get short
hair again, and to get my hair to have light stripes.
was very satisfied. It was wonderful to have short hair again,
and I am happy about the pale stripes.
Yesterday it was Ascension Day, which is a public holiday in
Norway. I spent the entire day in the garden, in the wonderful
weather. After we put up our new terrace, we also extended the
flowerbed by the terrace. I decided to move all the flowers in
the flowerbed on the south side of our
house, to this new flowerbed. The flowerbed
on the south side of our house, has a large rock under, and
the plants had not much soil, and bad conditions. I belive
that the flowers will have much better conditions in this new
This took the entire day, but I was happy, working with this.
I love working in the garden.
In the fowerbed by our new terrace
we only have pink flowers. Now 50 pink Tulips are flowering.

Happy May 17th, everyone!
Today it's Norway's
constitution Day, and all the children have been walking in
the May 17th parade.
We have had a wonderful weather here on Norway's birthday. See
more photos of our celebration of May 17th
Friday May 15th
We have had a couple of days with fantastic weather. Mild and
nice, sunny and no wind. 12-14 degreez Celsius. It's a pity
that I have to sit indoors at work when the weather is so nice.
But I really do enjoy the weather after work. Besides, I am
very lucky to work where I do. I have a wonderful sea view
from my window at work. I see and hear Seagull's and other sea
birds from my window. During the last couple of days large
flock's of goose have been flying above us. It's impressing to
watch houndreds of goose, on their way "home" from warmer
countries, where they spend their Winter time. It's a special
smell in the air now, from salt sea and Spring. It is day's
like we have now, that make me love Spring time.
I often go out in our garden. Some day's I don't do much. Just
walk around, and enjoy the flowers. Other day's I work in the
garden, and make new flowerbeds and other stuff. I have posted
some photos from our garden on the page with photos of:
Sour soil and my page about
Tulips (the latest photos are down at the
I brought Joakim to an alternative therapist.
Complementary medicine is a term
used for a wide variety of health care practices that may be
used along with standard medical treatment.
People often use yoga, meditation, and other complementary
practices to improve wellness and quality of life. But in
recent years, lots of people have been turning to
complementary medicine to help treat a wide range of
conditions from hot flashes to high blood pressure. Other
examples of complementary medicine include acupuncture, herbal
remedies, naturopathic medicine, massage therapy, and light
Since we were on our holiday in
Turkey last Summer, Joakim has had enormously much trouble
with his stomach and intestine, with lot of pain and diarrhoea.
He has turned worse and worse, for each week. We have also
been to doctors, but I decided to try alternative medicine, to
see if this could help him, because it seemed like nothing
could help him to get better. The kind of alternative care
that we tryed, is a kind of machine that you are beeing
connected or swithced to, with some electronic connections on
your wrist and ankle. This machine sends electrical impulses (electrical
frequency) into your body. This do not hurt. You don't feel
anything. You can even sleep when this machine works with you.
The machine scan your body for
two hours, and finds out if you have any
bacterium, virus, fungus disease
or other imbalaces in your body. When the machine is finished
with the scan, it starts to treat you with
electrical impulses (electrical
frequency). The machine also makes medicine for you.
I am not sure if I belive in
this kind of alternative medicine, but nothing seemed to help
Joakim to get well. He has been ill for almost a year. The
last weeks, he has had pain in his stomach each and every day.
That's why I decided to let Joakim try this very expencive
I am very happy, and a bit
surprised, that after this therapy, Joakim's stommach did not
hurt. When he woke up this morning, he felt well too. I am so
happy, and a bit worried if this will not last. But most of
all I am so very very happy. The therapist also told us to use
4 kinds of natural alternative medicine, to help the body to
get rid of all the
virus, fungus disease and imbalaces that Joakim has in his
intestine. And in 2 weeks, Joakim will be scanned in this
machine once again. If this machine will cure Joakim, I will
be a very happy mom!
Charles' son, Morten, celebrated his 23rd birthday. We ordered
pizza from our lokal pizza restaurant, and invited Morten to
eat pizza and drink coffee and eat cakes together with us, on
our terrace. It was very nice to sit on our terrace in the
Now it's only two day's left until
May 17th, Norway's
constitution Day, and the weather forecast has promised us
nice weather on Norway's birthday. I belive that it will be a
nice day. Happy May 17th, everyone!
Monday May 11th
After work today
have bought 8 flowers for this area. These new flowers are
supposed to cover most of the soil in this flowerbed. It's not
very nice yet, but I hope that it will be luxuriant when the
flowers are getting bigger.
Instead of walking with Rex
today, I took my bike, and cycled a little trip with him.
During the afternoon the weather was quite nice, with sun and
no rain. Even if it was a bit chilly, it was a nice
Sunday May 10th
This weekend I have used
most of my time to make this new flowerbed for the new bushes.
Yesterday we had nice weather, but today it has been raining a
lot. In spite of the rain, I have been out in our gardne,
working. I am not quite finished yet, but I have done a lot. I
have put all the new bushes into the soil.
View over our garden,
with the new flowerbed, on top on the left hand side.
Thursday May 7th
Yesterday it was very nice
weather here. After work, we had a barbeque party, in our
barbeque house. We enjoyed moose/elk meat with red wine.
Charles' brother and his wife, his sister and her hubby and
Charles' son, Morten spent the evening togehter with us. We
had a nice time in the barbeque house, and on the terrace,
where we enjoyed a cup of coffee, and ice cake in the sun,
later in the evening. We were able to sit ourdoors until
almost 9 PM (of course with warm clothes on, but anyway). It
was a nice evening.
Today it has been nice weather
until we were finished at work. Then it started to rain..
But I am happy, in spite of the
rain: Today the plants that I had ordered, came in the mail. I
hurried to the post office to get the parcel, so that the
plants should get out of their box, and into fresh air. I have
planned to make a new large flowerbed with mostly bushes,
here. I am looking
forward to start with this.
