spottet the first sign of a typical Spring bird here in Norway,
called "Tjeld" (Haematopus ostralegus).
Now our Easter
holiday has started. It's wonderful to have many days off.
Cecilie came home for her Easter Holiday. It's nice to have
her back home for some days.
Saturday March 20th
I have been buying lots of decorations, candles, and table
cloths that we are going to decorate the tables with, for Joakim's

confirmation, two years ago. If you want to see it, I have
posted it down at
It's more than a month until Joakim's confirmation, but I like
to be finished with as much as possible early. I don't like to
stress when I plan a big party, like this.
Yesterday I went to the bakery, and ordered two large cake's for
the confirmation. We are going to have a cake with a picture of
Joakim on, just like we did in Cecilie's confirmation.

am starting to wonder if this Winter never will end. I am
longing for Spring, but now we have gotten even more snow.
have to admit that the Winter may be beautiful, but I think that
we have had enough snow and cold weather. I want to have sunny
and warm weather!
Just now it is early Saturday morning, and Rex and I are the
only one's who have gotten out of bed. I am sitting with my
laptop on my lap, with a cup of coffee, and at the same time
watching a Travelling program on BBC Knowledge on TV. I have not
been able to travel much in my life, but I am very facinated of
other countries and other cultures. I hope that I will be able
to travel more in the future. The program has showed travelling
in China with the Chinese wall, Peru and the Inka people's
treasures and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with the 38 meter tall
statue of Christ. I have turned down the sound on the TV, as the
English speaking is translated into Norwegian, and texted.
Instead I have put on my newest CD: The best of Andrea Boccelli
- Vivere. I belive that Andrea Boccelli is a very talented
singer, and I have several of his CD's. Wonderful music!

about it, even I don't like rain, but I want Spring, and if it

Yesterday evening we discovered 3 roe deer's in our garden. They
were on our lawn, and it was very exiting to watch the roe
deer's at this close range. We switched off the lights in our
livingroom, and were watching them for a very long time, before
they ran into the woods.
have taken another photo from my window at work:
Joakim is going to be confirmated this Spring, and I have made
invitations, and sent these invitations in the mail to our

Joakim's confirmation. We will have black table cloths with blue
