Just now (at 9 PM)
I am sitting on our terrace with my laptop and enjoying a cup of
coffee. It's mild and nice. I am so happy that we finally got
some Spring weather. I really hope that we will have a nice and
warm Spring and Summer.
I have just been
walking in our garden, checking out what's blooming right now.
In this photo, we have blue Scilla in the back to the left, pink
"Bells" and yellow Narciss:

garden now days. You may almost see, from day to day, that it's

Unfortunately we did not get to keep the lovely weather from
Norway's Constitution Day.
It has been raining the entire day.
See my pages about Norway's birthday here.
spite of the bad weather, both Charles and I have put on our
bunads, and been out, looking at the parade with all the kids.
We have enjoyed an icecream and a cup of coffee, before we went
home. Later today, we are going to have coffee with our family.

Here is a photo of our garden, this afternoon:
Today we woke up to 3 degrees Celsius and sunny weather, so I
took my bike and bicycled to work today, wearing my jeans, a
fleece-jacket and no socks in my summer shoes. It was very cold
to cycle home from work in 1 degree and snow. But it was coldest
on my hands. I missed my gloves, more than I missed my socks.
Yesterday the weather was much better. I took this photo while I
was walking in the woods with Rex:
There are no green grass or leaves on the trees yet. But I
really like this photo from yesterday, much better than the
photo from today, of our snowy garden. I really hope that the
snow will melt again fast, and that we will get sunny and warm

Thuesday May 4th
At Sunday May 2nd Joakim was
confirmated. It was cold and windy, but apart from that, it was
a very nice day. I believe that both Joakim and all the guests
were satisfied about the day, and we enjoyed ourselves, each and
Me, Joakim, Cecilie and Charles in the
We have had all my family wisiting this
weekend, from Friday to Monday: Both my parents, Cecilie and her
boyfriend, both my two grandmothers and both my sisters with their
families. In addition to this, my ex and his girlfriend, my ex father
i law with his wife, also spent som time and some meals together with
us. Only my grandmothers slept in our house, the rest of the family
slept in caravans in our yard, and cottages on a camping, near our
house. We enjoyed all our meals togheter. We have had a very nice
weekend togheter with my familiy.
Friday afternoon I made 3 homemade
pizzas for everyone. Most of my family had to drive for about 6 hours
to get to us, and were happy to have homemade pizza when they arrived.
On Saturday we had a barbeque party and enjoyed the afternoon and
evening in our barbeque house.
We celebrated the confirmation day at
the lokal sports club’s skiing cottage. We did not have enough space
in our own home to serve dinner and coffeee for 37 persons.
Yesterday morning, when my family was
going to drive home, we woke up to snow and winter! My parents decided
to leave their caravan, and come and get it some days or weeks later.
My family drove together, later in the afternoon, when some of the
snow had melted. My sister and her family had Summer tyres on their
car, and my parents has winter tyres, but could not take their caravan
Now it’s normal day’s again, with work
and school for Joakim. I really hope that we will get warmer wether
soon. (Luckily, the snow that came yesterday, has melted again.) I am
looking forward to spend some time in our garden soon. This year I
don’t have any large ”projects” in the garden, like I have had earlier.
This year will be most maintenance.
