Today we have
warm sunny weather. It's just wonderful, after several days
with bad weather.
This day I have
replyed to all the e-mails in my inbox, and updated my Web
Site. I also have done some housework. It's always laundry to
wash, a dishwasher machine to empty and floors to vacuum-clean.
My kids and I also have been a small trip at the shop.
home from his moose hunt this morning. We have just been
relaxing the entire morning. It's nice to relax when it's
Later in the evening, we enjoyed a homemade pizza.
Yesterday I went
to kindergarten and picked up two kids. I am their aunt. I was
taking care of them, until their mother, Charles' youngest
sister, came to get them, after work.
Than I went to
dance. It's SO fun to dance. I am very happy that I started to
dance, last Fall, a year agio.
man and woman who
interested in seeing our appartment, has told us that they don't
want our appartment. They had a couple of wished that was not
fulfilled. I have no idea what that was. (Perhaps they wants
to have more garden and lawn, or perhaps they wants a garage
to their car?) I was very sorry, but there are nothing to do
about it. It is difficult to sell houses here in our town now.
I know about several people struggeling with selling their
houses. We must just hope that there will come someone who is
interested in buying our appartment, sooner or later.
Charles and his moose hunting
friends got the last two mooses today. They were allowed to
shoot four animals. Charles was very happy to be able to shoot
two of them. Another guy was happt to shoot the other two. But
all of the guys are sharing the meat. It's very nice to have
lots of moose meat in the freezer during the winter.
and his friend are staying at the cottage. They are going to
enjoy a nice meal, of the moose, and then they will come home
After work and
school today, Cecilie, Joakim and I have been shopping. Both
the kids have been dreaming about getting new trousers for a
long time, and today they got the trousers they have been

If you wish to take a look at my birthday
pages, you will find them here.
Charles went for
moose hunting yesterday. Already this morning they have got two
mooses. Charles got one of them, and he was very happy!
The company which
are going to sell our appartment called me today, when I still
was at work. He said that there were a man and a woman who vere
interested in seeing our appartment. They are going to move to
our town, and they were using this day to see all of the houses
and appartments which are availible in this town.
They came at 5 PM,
and I showed them the house, both indoors and outdoors. They
seemed very interested and were very positive. But I don't know
what kind of houses they have seen earlier today, and I don't
know what they actually are looking for, and what kind of house
they want, so we are very tensed about if we will be hearing
from them again.
After work, today,
I went to a pizza restaurant and bought a pizza which the kids,
(Cecilie, Joakim, Morten), and I were sharing. Charles was
eating middle rib steak of beef (made from the moose thay shot
this morning), before he came home to be together with us at my
birthday. In the evening, he drove back to the hunting team.
Charles sister also came to wisit ut at my birthday, and joined
us, eating cookies and drinking coffee.
Photos of my birthday are here.
The parents meating
was canselled, so I just stayed home today, after work. Cecilie
and Joakim did their homework, so it was okey that I was at home,
to help them.
Charles went for
moose hunting today. Most likely he will come home tomorrow
evening, to celebrate my birthday, and than he will go back to
the hunting again at Thursday morning.
My birthday is at
Wednesday, but tomorrow I am going to a parents meating, at
school in the evening, so I don't have time to bake anything.
That's why I have been using this evening to bake 3 kinds of
cakes. (Cup cakes, Brownies and a Sponge cake.) I baked two
Brownies, because I am going to bring one of them to my work at
my birthday. (We use to do this, where I work.)
Today my parents are
celebrating their 40th anniversary! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, MOM AND DAD!

evening, Cecilie, Joakim and I went to the movie. We watched
the movie Pirates Of The Carribian 2 Dead Man's Chest.
The film lasted for 2 1/2
hours, so the kids went to bed late this evening. Cecilie and
Joakim was very happy about the movie. They enjoyed it very
Picking up where
the first movie left off, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan are
to be married. However this is interrupted when both are
arrested for aiding in the notorious Captain Jack Sparrow's
escape. The new captain, Beckett, will lift all charges, if
Will can hunt down Jack and bring him back to Beckett, along
with his magic compass. However, Jack has other problems.
Years ago, he made a deal with Davy Jones to raise the Black
Pearl. Time is up. His part of the deal was to give Davy Jones
his soul. Once Will finds Jack, unaware of the current
situation, Jack coaxes Will into boarding Davy Jones's ship,
the Flying Dutchman, and retrieve a mysterious key. This key
opens the chest that contains Davy Jones's secret. With it,
you can control Davy Jones and his fearsome beast, The Kraken.
Once Will retrieves said key, Davy Jones is hot on his trail,
now hunting down both Jack and Will. It is now, only a matter
of time, before something happens. Hopefully the pirates can
reach the chest and stop Davy Jones, before he reaches them
and sends them all to a watery grave...
Today was the first day, for several days that we woke up to
sunny weather and no rain. It was wonderful to see the sun again.
I am not very fond of Fall and Winter. My favourite time of the
year are Spring and Summertime. (But, of course, I love
Christmas time too, even if it's in Winter time.)
This day I have planned to do some housework. I go to work every
day, and don't have time to do all my housework at the weekdays.
I have to use some of the weekends too. I also have planned to
take a trip to our new house today. Charles are also going there.
He is going to do something with the floor in the room which is
going to be our bathroom, to make the floor waterproof.
My husband bought me a new cellular phone today! It's for my
birthday, which is week left to, but Charles is going to hunt
for moose on my birthday. The hunting always starts around the
date of my birthday. That's why he wanted to give me the present
today. (He is hunting 1/2 hour car drive from our house, so he
will come home at the evening, and than drive to hunt again,
This is how it looks:
Cecilie got my old Sony Ericsson. This Summer Charles also
bought himself a new cellular phone. Joakim got his old
Today we woke up to this beautyful sunrise:
I took this photo at 07.12 AM this morning, from our terrace.
I have created a new page with
photos from Fall 2006.
Today, we have been working with our new house, the entire day.
Charles has been working with the new foundation wall, with the
new part of our new house. While I have been painting a dark
grey color around the livingroom windows (on the outside). After
painting, I dug up two kinds of flowers, which were in the garden
in our new house. (Peon and Lily's). The flowerbed was full of
weeds, so I dug up the only two flowers among all off the weeds.
I put the flowers in pots, to see if I got rid of all the weeds.
I will have to keep the Peon and the Lily's in the pots until
next year, to see if I got rid of the weeds.
I have posted several new photos on my
pages about our new house.
Check out my "What's
new-page" to see where I have posted the
Yesterday and today, we have had nice warm weather. It was
lovely to wear Summer clothes again. I am not very fond of Fall
and Winter, with wet and cold weather. -Wonderful to feel a
flash of Summer again. (At Thursday, we woke up to 5 degreez
Celsius, and at Friday, we woke up to 16 degreez, and it was
warmer during the day.)
At Thuesday the electritians were working in our new house, and
gave us electricity in the entire house.
Charles has been at our new house and joint/ seam the tiles in
the kitchen. (We have tiles between the bench and the cupboards.)
He also put up boards around the livingroom windows (at the
In the afternoon, today, Charles and his cousine, put a kind of
concrete at the floor in our front entrance. (Over the floor
heating cables.) They also did this on our bathroom floor.
I have been home, in our appartment today, doing lots of
housework. After this I went to the new house, and put some
flower bulbs in the soil, to get nice flowers next year.
Later in the evening, we enjoyed a homemade pizza.
Today my thoughts goes to USA and the terrible things that
happened there, 5 years ago.
After work today, Charles and a friend of his, who is an
electritian, put down the electric kables, to make the floor
heating in the entrance hall.
Tomorrow the electritians are coming.
Another day with rain and bad Fall weather. I miss the sun!
We are sitting in our appartment, relaxing with a cup of coffee,
each. We have just eaten breakfast. We are soon going to our new
house, to work.
Today we have done lots of things in our new house: Charles and
his brother put up the wall tiles at the kitchen (between the
bench and the cupboards). The kitchen became very nice.
In addition to this, Charles also continued to prepare for the electrictian,
so that it will be more easy for the electrictian, (and cheaper
for us) when he is coming.
I have used this day to empty the garage, which we filled with
stuff at August 20th. (Ex. Christmas
decorations, some furnitures, bags, suitcases and so on). I
have carried it all inside our new house. Some of it, I put into
the attic, but I did not manage to put it all up, so the last
few things are still in the entrance hall. But, I got it all
into the house, so it will stay dry. It could have been very
moist in the garage, with the bad weather that we have nowdays.
We have been at our new house, working today too. Charles is
still there, but we do have two houses now, and I went back to
our appartment, to do some housework there. I have been working
for a couple of hours, cleaning and tidying, so now it finally
looks nice here, so we can relax and enjoy the Saturday evening,
with homemade pizza.
In our new house, I have been washing the kitchen furnishings
today. After this, I helped Charles to empty the entrance hall,
which was full of stuff (a big saw, shoes, garbage, unused
wallboards and lots of other stuff). We are going to get floor
heating in the entrance hall (and the bathroom), and we had to
prepare the room for this.
We are still working a lot with
our new house, but, today, we decided to stay at home and
relax. We have been watching TV and eating shrimps. -Wonderful
to stay at home for one evening, and not have to work with the
new house. But, tomorrow, we are going to our new house, and
I have started
to get questions about what we wish for Christmas. I haven't
even started to think about Christmas yet. But,
today I decided to start buying Christmas presents. I have
never started this early before. Each Christmas we buy over
30 gifts, so it is actually okey to start early. Nice to
spread the expence over several months, instead of buying
them all in December. I bought clothes to most of the kids,
and bedclothes to the older "kids". Charles has several
siblings which have children at the age of approximately 20
actually bought 15 Christmas presents! It's wonderful! It's
just early September, and we are half-way in buying
I have to
admit that I am one of those who gets irritated when the
shops starts to decorate for Christmas in October. I think
that they should wait until the end of November, at least.
But, then, it's okey to start, I belive. I LOVE
Christmas, and the Christmas preparations.)
byuing Christmas presents early, is something different, I
think. This is something that I do, to spread the expence
over several months, instead of buying all the Christmas
gifts in December.
After work today,
Charles went to our new house. He and his brother casted a kind of
concrete at our floor, in the new bathroom. While I was staying at
home, helping Joakim with his homework. Cecilie was wisiting a friend.
Later, at the evening, I
went to dance swingdance again, like we do every Thuesday evening.
After work today,
Charles and I went to our new house. Charles started to put up some
lamps, so that it will be more easy for the electrictian, (and cheaper
for us) when he is coming.
I started to clean up a
bit, and I also painted two pieces of mouliding in the kitchen, that
Charles have put up, after I had painted the kitchen.
and I went to our new house, after breakfast. I started to
paint the window frames which Charles put up yesterday. (I
painted two out of four). I also painted the mailbox stand.
his cousine put plaster plates at the floor in the bedroom
which we are going to make into a bathroom.
I have also
used parts of this weekend to do lots of laundry.
Just now, I
am reading Joy Fielding's book Puppet. This book is
beautiful young defense attorney is thrown into turmoil when
she is called back to her hometown to defend her disturbed,
estranged mother, who publically shot and killed a man.
Amanda Travis doesn’t like memories.
But when Ben, the first of her two ex-husbands, calls from her
hometown of Toronto with the alarming news that her mother has
shot and killed a man in the lobby of the Four Seasons Hotel,
it becomes more and more difficult for Amanda to continue
running from her past. Now she must return to face her demons
and the life she left behind — a love that once consumed her
and a mother who holds a strange, dark power over everyone she
encounters. “Puppet” is the nickname Amanda’s mother once
called her. But now Amanda is determined to fight her mother’s
fatal whims — even if it kills her.
I have not
finished the book yet, but i enjoy the book and like it very
I went back to our new house again, and painted the two other window frames.
I was happy to see that the light grey color on the house, and
the dark grey color on the window frames matches
This day, I
have been with my sister in law and a friend of hers. We have
been washing my sister in law's and brother in law's old
house. They have sold this house, and are going to move a bit
closer to our town. Today we have been washing their old
house, so it's nice and clean when the new house owners will
been in our new house, working. Among other things, he has put
up some boards arond the windows (on the outside of the
house), he also put up the new window in our new bath.
It was almost
a bit sad to turn the page on our calendar today. I am
absoulutely most fond of the Spring and the Summer. But, we
are still having nice weather. Today it is 16 degreez Celcius
and cloudy, but we have had warm and nice weather for several
I do whatever
I can, to keep the Summer here. I enjoy the perennials which
still is blooming, and I have bought flower bulbs that I am
going to plant this autumn. These flower bulbs will give us
nice flowers next Spring, Summer and Autumn.
started to dance swingdance again. The swing club has had
Summer holiday. It was very funny to start dancing again. I
have missed these dance evenings.
