Spring is here!

31 Mar

Already in November the snow came to stay. Since then we’ve had either snow, or lots of snow. It’s not like normally when there’s early snow and then it disappears and then later, the real snow will come. Well, that didn’t happen. The snow in November stayed. And now, it’s finally starting to melt after 5 long months of snow!

Look at that! Just two weeks ago the roads were covered in 30 centimeters of ice! Literally, and where the cars had been driving there was no ice, so the tire tracks were 30 cm deep, and you didn’t wanna get stuck in one of those in case you met oncoming traffic because the road is so narrow that you have to move to the side when you meet a car, especially when there’s snow. And look, now the streets are bare. And you see the boat? That’s my brother’s boat. It has been completely covered with snow. All of it, you couldn’t see the boat. But now you can! This puts me in an incredible mood. The weather is sunnier with less clouds and more sun and the days are longer and lighter so now I wake up from the sun shining through my windows rather than my alarm clock. Which is great. The temperature is milder – finally above freezing, and the dog is getting sandier. On Saturday after walking him I decided to give him a bath because wherever he lay down he left piles of sand, and now the floor of our house is covered in little doggie paws. It’s a little bit cute, but walking on sand is annoying. It’s funny though, cause now you can see where he normally walks. I like tiny paw prints, they’re cute. Oh and now the weather is so mild that the dog can even go for walks without his woolen sweater on. I think he likes it :) And he is no longer covered in snow when he comes in :)

Anyway spring is here, and I love it!!

It really brings my mood up and I smile a lot more, I laugh a lot more, and just.. everything is easier to handle. And I bet I’m not the only one!

Kunstverkstedet Den Sorte Katt

10 Nov

The Black Cat. It’s a art gallery/workplace where my moms friend, Anita Hanch-Hansen Fjeldhaug, and my mom make their art. My mom makes porcelain bowls and cups, really pretty, Anita makes everything else; jewelry, angels, clowns, paintings, you name it. You can see for yourself the beautiful art in the slide show. They make great gifts : ) (Just a little Xmas tip:P)

For de av dere som skulle lese dette og bo i Norge, sjekk ut facebooksiden, og ta gjerne kontakt med Anita gjennom facebooksiden, eller for all kontakt meg i kommentarfeltet eller på mail. Hun har åpent galleri hver dag, og til jul skal hun ha jule.. hva heter det for noe.. edit: julegalleri? Juleåpent? Julemarked. Det er en samling av forskjellige kunstnere som kommer til Anita og setter opp boder i hagen hennes til jul. Litt sånn messe aktig. Kjempekoselig iallefall, så bor du i nærheten, gå ikke glipp av det! Gå ikke glipp av det uansett hvor du bor ;P (this was just some info you have no need of knowing unless you live in Norway really, but if you really want to know what it says, there’s always google translate. :P )

Lots of great art, just check it out!

I’ll see if I can have Mads take pictures of the cakes and stuff, and I’ll post another post : )

Gotta go be “social” now : P

Today: Tons of new ideas

2 Sep

Today I waisted time (but I loved it!) on looking through images on weheartit.com, different personas for Firefox, and looking at page up and page down of photography ideas on dPS, which was actually not waisted time. I got 4 pages of new ideas, and I’m only even half way!

Some of my favourites were:

Wind.
Water.
Hope.
Abandoned/Deserted/Lost.

Any of you do any photographing? What’s your favourite subject? I would love to see some photos!

Sorry this is such a short post. I figured I’d update a little bit, but Criminal Minds suddenly got really interesting.. ^^’ Kind of distracted there.
But right now I am so tired and my neck is hurting, so I think I’m just going to go to bed. I’ll post better posts this weekend.

Nighty!

Mads is here!

Full wool Merino sheep.

We walked doggie in the woods, and we went to the place where all the sheep are, and it was just a funny moment. I held out a pice of grass and one of the sheep spotted me, and so walked slowly towards me. His fellow sheep then saw me as well, and he followed the first sheep. And then sheep number 3 and 4 also peaked up from behind the hill and they all slowly came towards us, with clear expressions saying “Eh? What’s going on? We must figure this out. This must be some kind of aliens” And they were SO sceptical, and I just stood there with my little leaf in my hand, and they came slowly towards me, stopped, turned to one another as if to say “..should we?” and then continued on. A few meters away from me they all stopped, sheep 1, sheep 2, sheep 3 and sheep 4 all on a line with one in front and the other 3 just right behind him. I had to work not to laugh and just be standing still. Eventually one came over to have my little leaf though :) It was nice going for such a long walk in the woods. The weather is kind of chilly, but not cold, and the air was really fresh. It smelled of cold and forest. It was all quiet and stuff.

Anyway, we took a couple of fun pictures. Now, it’s just from my webcam, using all those fun effects that comes on the PhotoBooth on the macbook. But we had so much fun, and there are so many crazy pictures. I hope our fun times came thru in the photos.

And we also found the video feature! Lol.

Right, well I couldn’t upload that one..

Speaking of photos, when my dad is back from work this weekend, WITH the DSLR, I am SO going to bring it with me wherever I go and take tons of pictures and really develop my photography skills. I get weekly newsletters by email from DPS, and I am going to use them. I am going to become GOOD. And I am also going to learn to edit them. If you have any tips or tricks on that, btw, please let me know. Remember that I’m a beginner though, so beginner tips would be nice.

Here is the song that we were just listening too!

Breaking Benjamin – Evil Angel

I don’t know if that worked, but yeah.

Have a nice evening!

Båstad

18 Aug

So I was originally planning to post this yesterday, and I started uploading pictures before dinner but it seemed to take forever, so I let them load during dinner as well and figured they’d be done by the time dinner is over, but they weren’t, so then I figured I’d wait until I was done curling my hair, but it was STILL not done. So I just let it load, and now I remembered them, and so I post them. You see, I had to run yesterday to go to Mads’ house because we were both starting at half past nine today and I would be there at 8 if I stayed home because there are no busses and I’d need to ride with mom. From Mads’ house, we can walk. So we did so.

Anyway, here are the pics from Båstad, Sweden.

Gorgeous, right?

Let me know what you think!

Mads is here!

15 Aug

Oh yeah, I got my way again : P

Kidding, but he is here, and he had dinner with us, and Unni and Hans, and it was all nice, and it is so hot outside! Gah, even just eating dinner outside seemed too hot. And this is Norway I’m talking about here. Oh well.

Wasn’t going to write a whole lot, just .. you know. Something.

Aww don’t we look nice.
