The Farm

It’s been a lot of scrapbooking talk here lately – and here is yet another post. Kind off. Sorry. ;)

Tattered Pear is show cased at The Daily Digi today – with their contributing kit Bookmarked. I loved all the whimsy doodles, the sayings and the colors. I found the kit perfect for a page about our love of books, no, about the FARM. LOL, I love to stretch a kit!

The Farm

journal:
This summer we got to spend a few days  @ The Farm all by our selves. We loved it. So nice to have some time to just be at that lovely place that is so much a part of us (and in the future will be our home). The Farm is placed on a hilltop and the houses face straight south. It’s always somewhat windy, but the sun (if it’s not a cloudy day) shines all day long. It’s a calm and quiet place with breathtaking view. I love spending time there. I love that the farm do produce organic grain (oat, rye, wheat), and I look forward to get my hands dirty (literary) with the plowing and sowing. A farmers work are never finished and it’s a lot of things that needs fixing or someone’s attention, I feel worried about the finances and the big load of work related to keeping the farm alive. This is me hoping to find a way to refine the grains (or other produce) on the farm in  the future and sell it directly from our own little farm shop. Ask me in 10 years if I managed to do it!!  :)

To be honest, I’ve been thinking a lot about the farm lately, I’ve been saying I want to take over – and I do – but now that the time to do so draws closer I’m getting a bit scared. Can I do it all? Can I produce anything else than weeds? Can I plow snow in the winter? I’m not sure all of these has a big YES to them…, some might even have a big NO instead – and how do I handle that?

You get the idea? Lots of thoughts going on. And let me tell you this: my word for this year is FAITH and it is for sure about what I believe to be true; my Christian faith – but it is also very much about this; daring to have faith in my decisions and abilities. Daring to follow my dream.

A Long For The Western Country

A Long For The Western Country

It’s been a few years since I lived in the Western part of Norway and I quite love living close to family, but still sometimes I long for the fjord, the mountain and the people of the West.

Especially this summer. When we haven’t traveled over the mountains to meet our friends, when it’s been raining like the west here in the east all summer long, when I haven’t had a ferry ride in ages and when I’ve been fortuned enough to have friends come and visit us – making me miss living close to them ever more.

A Long For The Western Country

This is the last page I’m posting for one of Shimelle’s challenges. It’s been so fun making all these and joining in on the fun at Shimelle’s site (as much as I managed during a busy weekend + week at work). This page is for the Half Page challenge.

A Long For The Western Country

It’s been a scrappy kind of day today, I’m having the weekend off and spent most of my day yesterday moving stuff from our old house. Today I’ve just done whatever I wanted (= a lot of scrapbooking) and relaxed together with MT. Trying to recharge for a busy week ahead.

So, did you manage to enter Shimelle’s challenges?

Maybe you don’t scrap as much as I, but I do hope you share your stories. At least a few of them. Maybe capturing your every day life with your camera?! We forget so much so fast and I’m so glad for the moments I’ve shared here, in my photos or in one of my scrapbook pages. And yet there are so much more to tell! See you soon!
