all the beauty there is to see

Mural detail; lionTuesdays are always a bit stressful in this house. And even though I got an pretty early start at work today, we still had to eat a speedy dinner. The last part of it got stuck (or so it felt like) in my throat for an hour after I finished…. And off course MT moved slower than ever, like he always seems to do while I’m in a hurry ;) Anyway we got to the room where Baluba (our church school for kids), the cause for me being in an hurry, and we had such a nice time. Not silent and not without disturbances, but still so good. I so love working with them!!Project 365 - Drawing, Jan. 30.2007

The artist of the painting (not the lion, that’s a lion from our wall mural) didn’t think she was any good. Boy was she wrong! Don’t you agree?! It’s so nice to see how they enjoy using colors and making it look beautifully. MT’s paining isn’t so within-the-lines, though ;) (and I sadly have no photos of it).

Todays topic was Bartimaeus; the one that after meeting Jesus went from being blind to becoming seeing. It’s a wonderful story, and as you can see the children were working on how much beauty he now got to see.

Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (that is, the Son of Timaeus), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

cleaning day

So there, now I have no more excuses, but have to roll up my arms and put on some dunki-dunk music. It’s cleaning time! Today’s goal, just to keep myself from forgetting what I have to do – I’m a bad housekeeper(!!) – is:

  • putting on a new load of clothes in the washing machine
  • and then another load later today
  • cleaning my kitchen Feb 5th
  • and yes, cleaning the floor as well(!)  Feb 5th
  • swipe over the living room floor
  • and go through all the papers and stuff piled up everywhere well, not all but some… Feb 5th
  • clean the bathroom
  • and off course the bathtub as well
  • drink coffee ;)
  • and remove anything Christmassy, now it’s over!! finally, Feb 5th

Do you think I can pull this off??? Wish me luck!

UPDATE: It’s 3 pm and I’m sitting here relaxing a bit. Soon I’m off to pick up MT and we’ll make dinner together. I guess the cleaning day will resume when he’s in bed…… I think I might have over loaded myself a bit :o

weekend end

ski This weekend I was so set on taking MT skiing in prepared ski treks up in the valley, that I didn’t even think for a minute to check if my own skis where present.

They weren’t :(

So there, no ski trip for us two! MT got mad, and I was frustrated because I should have remembered to bring back my skis from the farm last November. To top it all, I really wanted to go skiing as well. But then I buried my sorrow in shoveling snow….. MT was good help , and off course he spent quite some time to master his sliding technique…

getting rid of that snow... getting rid of that snow... getting rid of that snow... going downhill going fast uuups

DSCF7482In the evening more snow fall, it was quite a winter wonderland, but off course by morning the rain took over. I had a service in the church farthest away and we used so long time on the icy road! I don’t understand why the county can’t put some sand on the roads, it would be a lot safer to drive… But no, not a grain!DSCF7479

Tomorrow I have the day off and are planning to clean and wash my house. It. Is. Much. Needed. (To put it lightly) MT’s going to the kindergarten so I get the house to myself for a few hours. When he gets home I plan to cook a fish dinner and have time to enjoy it with my favorite boy.DSCF7476

I’m eager to update Lime to WP2.1, but have to wait a bit until I’ve sorted out my house, I guess ;) lime in colorI’m also on the look for a new look(!), so if you have a good link I’ll run over to see it. Must.Have.Colors!


LOL; good morning to you too!

He he, I just realized it when I got down in the living room:

We got out of bed to early; one hour early !!
Upstairs I’ve been rushing MT to get his clothes on, for kindergarten, or no – so he can watch TV ;)

This isn’t going to happen again anytime soon, so we’ll just enjoy the quiet morning!

meeting; again

For the third day in a row; or fourth if the Baptism do count, I’m just home for a short time after work before we’re heading out of here. It’s so tiering not to be able to spend the afternoon and evening at home at least every other day. And, boy, does the house show how my schedule is ;)

Thankfully this row of days will end tomorrow, even though I should have been at a meeting that evening as well. Sigh! Yesterday it was MT that got to go to his children-trim I know he’s tired of this life too. And since he’s been outside in the snow for most of the day, the walk to the office – and back – might put him over the edge of what he’s able to endure for now…. It’s going to be a fun night, for sure!

Anyhow, life is good, the snow’s still here and I’m not desperately hungry anymore.. And the kid? He’s sitting in the living room eating what’s left of his breakfast – I better go :o – it’s not like I didn’t try and offer him something else.. poor kid.


I planned to leave the meeting at about 8 pm, figured that would be an okei time to put MT into bed…. But no, we got home over 3,5 hours lather and MT got to bed really late….. Sigh!

another snowy day

Another day with beautiful snow, we love it!! The weather forecast says that it will be gone by tomorrow, so we’ll better enjoy. Hopefully MT get to be outside all day, or almost…. Yesterday he tried out his skis, and had such fun and also frustration because he thought he should be able to go down the small hill at first try without falling once. I tried to lower his goals, telling him to practice and start at the bottom, but NO he should go all the way ;)
