77/365 – July 12th 2010

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.

63/365 – June 28th 2010

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.

……………………………..
64/365 – June 29th 2010

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.

56/365 – June 21th 2010

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.

60/365 – June 25th 2010

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.

51/365 – June 16th 2010

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.

365 Photo Project – week 6/52

O.k. I admit it. I’ve been trying out a few different approaches on the 365-project side of things, and I haven’t been absolutely perfect in any of them. But I’ve still had some fun and learned a whole lot about me, photographing and blogging. So I’m not afraid to try it ONE MORE time ;) This time I’m using my handy with-me-to-almost-all-places-camera; my cell phone. It doesn’t take super good photos,  but this is about preserving memories from each day and not about capturing images for wall hanging…. or so I tell myself ;) I’m using the ShakeIt app for iPhone to turn my photos into Polaroid (mostly because it’s fun to shake the phone and for the most amazing sound it makes… hehe). To make the photos more alike (kind off), I’m planning to use this approach for the next year. I might change my mind later, but I can live with that. I’m kind of used to being me by now and I love to change it all up from time to time. So I’m not making any promises…

Playing a bit catch-up here, but her is the sixth week of the project – with photos and a few words:

Lama

~~~ 36/365 ~~~

On our way back from the football (soccer) matches this week. We drove by this farm with lots of Lamas. I think they are the coolest animal, and I’m so glad to finally just stop and take a little photo. (June 1th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Canoe

~~~ 37/365 ~~~

I wish I was out there on the tiny lake in the canoe. It’s so much fun, and it’s been far too long since last time!! (June 2nd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lilac

~~~ 38/365 ~~~

I brush by this bushes everyday on my way to and from the office. The smell makes me stop and smell it once more. Love it. And the blue sky makes me happy too. Bright shiny early summer day. (June 3rd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cool Skies

~~~ 39/365 ~~~

Today I learned something new that makes me really happy!
MT went to visit some friends from school. When I went to get him home I was invited on cake. So nice. We stayed into the late evening, enjoying the company. Nice to get to know new friends. When we finally were able to pack our selfs out of there we saw this fantastics clouds in the sky. Loving how the sun gives it gloving stripes. (June 4th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bare Feet

~~~ 40/365 ~~~

For a while there I got to be bare feet in the grass. Loving the summer feeling. Have really been enjoying the warm summer weather as of lately.

Had my first wedding in the stave church. (June 5th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Me

~~~ 41/365 ~~~

Me in the mirror. That’s a thing I like to do from time to time.

I had two services this day. One in the stave church – and then one in the afternoon at our local church. It pretty much took all day, but I got time to play a little with MT and ate some delicious dinner ;) (June 6th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mogeno

~~~ 42/365 ~~~

In the early afternoon MT ran over to our neighboors to see if anyone wanted to jump in the trampoline with him. He soon came back and told me that he had no time for jumping, he had to watch a show at our school with E. Mogeno. I had completely forgotten all about it, and even though I mostly felt like staying home the rest of the evening, I knew he’d love the show. So we did. And he loved it. Mores surprisingly; so did I. (June 7th-2010)

Playing a bit catch-up here, but her is the fourth week of the project – with photos and a few words:

After the game

~~~ 22/365 ~~~

A big day. Playing his first two football matches of his life. Jumping all around the football field out of pure joy for the game. (May 18th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Only 4 more minutes please

~~~ 23/365 ~~~

Today was sunshiny and warm. Some afternoon showers came, but not much. MT was eager to start his football training and brought his new ball since I was in a meeting and he had to wait for me after the training was finished…. (May 19th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then the rain came

~~~ 24/365 ~~~

It started out this beautiful sunny day with warm, warm weather. I was so happy to hang the laundry outside and did a little bit of that and a little bit of this, sorting my mind after a busy week. In the early afternoon I started sewing on a gift project when suddenly a thunder storm came. I jumped to my feet, closing down all things computer and telephone. Then I was ready to jump out to save the laundry and the rain started pouring down and I got soaking wet trying to save my now really wet laundry (note to self: next time let it hang, the sun is bound to come back sooner or later). It rained hard for a while. I almost forgot to get MT home from school. (May 20th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

View of the river

~~~ 25/365 ~~~

Today we had White Sunday service in church with the youths of our neighborhood (ages 6 to 15). It was nice :D (May 21th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Shopping List

~~~ 26/365 ~~~

MT helped me write down what we needed at the store. He added a few things on his own too, like lots of candy and a magazine with toy gift. Then he drew a few faces and wrote important above. I love that he’s starting to put the words together and hope he can find a way to write down all the stories he love to tell :D The day was spent cleaning the house and chatting away on Designer Digitals (at least I did), MT was outside playing and spent some time in front of the TV too. (May 22th-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bare feet

~~~ 27/365 ~~~

White Sunday was glorious in more ways than one. After church we spent the day relaxing in front of the computer + in action out on the lawn playing football and such. So nice to spend time together. In the evening we moved our beds upstairs and to the bedrooms far away from the morning sun ;) MT was not so sure if he liked the idea of moving bedroom, but when the bed was in place and he got to decorate with his favorite things, he had some great fun. And he told me he slept really well. (May 23rd-2010)

~~~~~~~~~~~~

New Room

~~~ 28/365 ~~~

The heath and the early morning sun made us move upstairs. At least for the summer. MT got to use his new bed covers that he got for his birthday and was a happy camper. This is after the first night. Later I hope to paint this room and make a few images for the wall. But so far it suits him just fine. (May 24th-2010)
