Lately

fireman serious

Searched around some old photos and found this gem from 10. Sept 2006. So cute!

I had such good plans about blogging regularly this time. Even when I went back to work after the vacation. But it’s really hard sometimes to find time, especially when I also want to do some scrapbooking ;) So this past week / weekend I’ve been scrapping my heart out – and it’s been great! But on this last night of August 2010 I just wanted to make a little post. Just to say hay, just to tell I’m still here living my life both online and inline..

We are getting back into the everyday life, both kiddo and I. Starting to get used to the early mornings and the scheduling to make sure we manage to do it all… So far it’s been good, even though it’s been a challenge to remember everything some days.

I think I’m ready for September now. It’s fall around here anyway. The nights are starting to get darker and the weather is getting colder. I’m not sure I like it. But I will embrace it and enjoy the colors.

Tomorrow I’ll bring my camera along in the car. I might run into something beautiful that needs my attention and snapping.

I don’t think I’ve mention this before, but MT have started reading books. Not only cartoons, but real books. Books written for children, off course, but anyway books. Last week I was a bit late coming up to sing for him at bedtime, so he found a book I bought him this summer and started reading in it (I’ve been trying all summer to get him interested, lol..). When I finally got up he asked if he please could read a little bit more after I said good night. It’s so exciting, he told me. I was excited too, I spent my childhood borrowed in books and I love reading! So I told him, yes, you might read two more pages – and then you have to sleep. Yay! I’m so proud of him and LOVE the way they are teaching the love of reading at school!

O.k. so this has been a totally random post, so I might as well add a photo from a previous august day (26th 2005). Originally I had someĀ  plan of a “5 years ago post”, but I never got around to it. It’s the same this year anyway; time to harvest at the farm – if only the rain could stop! The oats are beautiful at close op :D

5 years ago

See you around!

Finally they finished laying the new decking outside. It looks good now, not as messy as it did before. I wonder what I’m going to put there….. ;)

78/365 – July 13th 2010

One of many wild flowers in my garden. I love these.

79/365 – July 14th 2010

I love living by the river. I love living by any kind of water, to be honest.

80/365 – July 15th 2010

I went by my parents this evening. My mom made me dinner and then we moved out in the tent (of sorts) and had coffee and sweets. It’s been a while since it’s been only me, my mom and my dad together for an whole evening. Strange but nice. Missing MT a whole bunch.

……………………………..
81/365 – July 16th 2010

The Red Rule demanded this picture taken. In this case you might even call it the Blue Rule as the door was just as important as my friends coat, but anyhow. I spent a nice evening in this house, chatting, eating, laughing and even got a late evening walk in the rain.

82/365 – July 17th 2010

I’ve read these books several years ago. Now I’ve started up again and added two books to the collection as well. This is #4 of 9, so I have great reading for the whole summer :)

83/365 – July 18th 2010

On my way home in the early evening – after having had three services in three different churches – the sun shone so beautifully at the river. I had to capture it.

My friend Bea is busy preparing for the wedding of her son and (soon to become) daughter in law, she loves making cakes and have several in the works. This is all for the wedding cake, it’s going to be fantastic. I’m leaving my son with her for a few weeks, he’s going to have a great time. I’m going to miss him.

71/365 – July 6th 2010

I drove over several small and large mountain areas on my way back home. I tried to take photos of the scenery, but it was not so easy… Loved this one though, with a little capture of what’s behind me as well :)

……………………………..
72/365 – July 7th 2010

Today was my birthday and I celebrated a little with family. We lit the wood stove (of sorts) that stands in the garden and it worked wonderfully as a BBQ. A great evening with tasty simple food. | here is a digital scrapbook page I did about it |

73/365 – July 8th 2010

Every once in a while I need me a new coffee mug. I loved this green and white polka dot cup, it is my new favorite. Today I enjoyed some coffee, sitting outside just relaxing.

……………………………..
74/365 – July 9th 2010

Any normal evening you’ll catch me surfing the internet, some of the evening you’ll also catch me watch telly. If I only could get around to start blogging again regularly I would be so happy.

……………………………..
75/365 – July 10th 2010

I’ve started walking by the river. I really like it; all the beauty of the nature, the smell and sound of the water, the funny scrapbooking podcast on my ear. An hour well spent.

……………………………..
76/365 – July 11th 2010

It’s been a rainy day. I love the light in the evening.

I’m so glad we didn’t hang out at home until it had been to late for a bath. That happens sometimes. But today we managed to get out of our house and drive to a great place for bathing right by my parents house. We even got my mom to come, she brought coffee and cookies and we spent a few hours by the lake together.

He’s not as eager to go out and play in the rain as he was when he was little, but he still loves to make his own dams and rivers on a good rainy day.

……………………………..
65/365 – June 30th 2010

Sometimes the sunset really is strong in color. I love how the river reflects it.

……………………………..
66/365 – July 1th 2010

Today we visited IKEA and MT got to try out how a Loft Bed feels. He’s warming to the idea, but still thinks he has an alright bed as it is. I don’t agree, so come fall we’ll be back buying this one. | Note to self: I have to make a blog post about this day and the trip to IKEA, not often we are told to leave the building, I’m just saying… |

……………………………..
67/365 – July 2nd 2010

Every now and then MT asks me to come and play some football (soccer) with him. This time I tried to capture us while playing. The photo is just a strange one, but it makes me happy.

……………………………..
68/365 – July 3rd 2010

He insisted on taking a bath. The water was cold, so this is as far as he got. But at least he got to try.

……………………………..
69/365 – July 4th 2010

After driving all night we were greeted by the morning sun on the ferry taking us over to the north side of the fjord. It’s so good to be with friends for a couple of days, an so great to be in the western side of Norway again. I like it here.

MT is so looking forward to three days of football school. He’s jumping up and down of pure joy and doesn’t even care that he doesn’t know the other kids of his age group that much…

……………………………..
57/365 – June 22nd 2010

From my walk by the river, lots and lots of beautiful flowers along the way, I really liked this bright yellow one even thought it’s a bit blurry…

……………………………..
58/365 – June 23rd 2010

I went by MT’s football school today at lunch time. And this is how they cool off the children ;) it’s been a really warm day. MT is having so much fun and learning a lot about the play too. He had so much fun following the sprinklers around the field, jumping up and down. And when he came up to me afterward he was dripping wet from top to toe.

59/365 – June 24th 2010

Sometimes and evening photo is all I can manage, it’s been a busy day – and a busy busy week.

Last fall they had to dig around the house since there was some trouble with a damp cellar. Now they are finally here to clean up and finish the job. It is so nice to see the ground flat and even again. I look forward to see the grass taking over…

61/365 – June 26th 2010

We where playing outside, throwing a ball over the table. He was throwing in all kinds of directions and I told him to play nice. “Me, I didn’t do anything”, he told me with a fake smile.

62/365 – June 27th 2010

Today I had service in this and one other church. I love this old church, it’s beautifully built and quite old. It was a beautiful day as well.

50/365 – June 15th 2010

I played the catch-up game with my photos. I’ve been good taking a photo with my iPhone each day. Not so good about uploading and writing a few words to accompany the photos. This was a looooong day at work, it was good to come back home and spend some time in front of the computer in the evening to regroup and recharge. It’s going to be a busy week.

The last church council of our local church was held in one of it’s members home. This is such a beautiful place, I just had to snap a little photo of the view. It was a beautiful day too.

52/365 – June 17th 2010

The children and teachers at MT’s school invited us parents for a summer party. With hot dogs, coffee, talking and playing. All of the children got role in a musical play, MT got to dance, and it was so fun to watch them. Here he is trying to smash the ball right before we went back home.

……………………………..
53/365 – June 18th 2010

MT is officially out of 1. grade. He is starting summer vacation.

……………………………..
54/365 – June 19th 2010

Today MT went to stay at the farm with his Grandma and Grandpa. His cousins were visiting too. I had to work and missed it all…. Here he is waiting for Grandma to pick him up, we met up on the half way there since I had a wedding ceremony to be back for. I miss him when he’s away, but I’m so glad he gets wonderful summer memories to cherish.

……………………………..
55/365 – June 20th 2010

Today we had an outdoors service celebrating Gods creation. Afterwards we went on a little hike looking for wild flowers in the fields – and on the side of the roads. We had fun, the weather was warm and filled with sunshine. My mom and dad, my sweet niece, my uncle, aunt and cousin all joined us. A good day.
