When I woke up today...

A fieldfare came and said hello when I brought out the camera. I just
had to take the picture then. LOL!

My street in the snow that came today. Winters first snow,
the trafic was BAD this morning. We live in Norway with 6
months of snow every year, still people are maniacs when
the snow comes!

My garden area. Guess the chairs aren't so comfortable to sit
in. Hehehe!

My pathway to the street. I rent and apartment in the
basement of a huge house. The house owner had it built
in 2005 when I moved in here. I love it, it's quiet and feels
very much like home. It will be hard to move, but at the same
time good to get something of our own.:o)

Feel Berlin

This weekend I was in Berlin. I saw some really awsome churches
that I snapped photos of. This one I saw in a when we were driving a

This one is from Kurfürstendamm, one of the longest shopping
streets in Europe. We did shop some including some awsome shoes
for only 19Euros!

Also from Kaiser Wilhelm Gedächtnis-Kirche. It's from 1895
and was bombed in 1943.

Found this amazing dress also. What do you think about it?
I find it really Cinderella like, but a tad gothic.

Last Sunday

We woke up to a bright and sunny day, and decided to go to the lake and have a nice time outdoors in the autumn. The air is so fresh and it was a lovely day to go. Frode wanted to make us a small bonfire and he's working on it as you see.

We got the fire going and started fishing. It's a bit late, but Frode did catch a rainbow trout. Weeee!! We made pancakes which we took with us and ate by the fire, under a big pine.

The colors are really nice in the forest this time a year. One can see how much pine and spruce we got really. Only the leaves are getting yellow.

This is the lake in the sun.

About 30 minutes after we arrived this is the weather that suddenly came over the treetops!! I can't belive how unlucky we were. Under the pine we were shielded from most of it so we sat there drinking coffee and waited it out. But it just kept pouring down. We decided to go fish anyway, they say fishing is good in bad weather, but we didn't actually confirm that myth.
after 2,5 hours of rain the poor pine was soaked and it dripped all over us and our things. It was then we started thinking about heading home.;o) After another hour we walked back to the car. All our things were soaking wet and I felt some areas where the rain had gotten through my clothes. It was really comfortable to get home into a warm apartment and slip into dry clothes.
It was worth it even though it rained.:o)
We were actually thinking about camping out there from Saturday to Sunday, but we stayed home for the night. I am sooooo happy we did because a autumn storm took us by surprice that night and knocked over several trees in this area. It had rained and blown hard the entire night. Frode said the next morning (he was up during the storm) that our tent wouldn't have stayed upright in that wind. That would have sucked big time in that rain!;o)


Received from Emma - England

From Astrid - Norway

This is an envelope I got in my mailbox. It was sealed inside a plastic bag from the postoffice with the note: injured mail during delivery. I have never ever come across something ruined like this. Only a piece of tape is holding the two pages together!! I wonder what happened!? But I did get the FBs and such weirdly enought. I don't know if I got the entire bunch sent though, as I cannot track down how many was sent.
