Yesterday we won the Eurovision Song Contest. WOW! That is amazing. I never thought we would win the whole damn thing! LOL! But I am of course very greatful that Norway finally has given a contribution to Europe that really delivered.:o) I didn't get to see the finals myself as we celebrated our 3 years anniversary at a fine China restaurant in the next town. I had steak as I cannot eat any dish there without becoming very ill, but Frode had a tasty lobster. :o) Both dishes were perfectly cooked/ prepared. Then I had a dessert that was sooooo tasty. Sorbet ice of forest berries and mango. Yummy! At home we saw Death Race and The Spirit. I didn't like The Spirit that much, but the tomboy I am LOVED Death Race. Hunky men in prison, gorgous girls and fast and crazy cars.;o) My fave movie this year. Looking forward to see Coraline, I think I will love that one too.:o)
Today's Norway's National day. This is how the main street in Oslo seems like right now as I write this. Every single one comes out this day, especially as it is sunny and blue sky today.:o) Foreign or not. Flags are waved and the kids parade the street passed the castle on top of the street.
There the King and Queen together with the crown prince and his crown princess are standing and watching for hours. Waving at every single school class that pass them. I think they'll have a waving injury at the end as there are over 100 schools in Oslo, and every school has many classes! WOW! On this picture I found you see the castle (a really ugly one) at the top of the street. In front of the picture are men and women dressed in our national clothings bunad. This type of wear represents where in Norway you are from. I have a dress I inherited from my grandma (5 sizes to big still), but I have to buy every accessorice to wear it. It costs a LOT. But I really like the one I have, it is black with very neat croche of flowers on the skirt.:o) Couldn't be more me, and it represents my roots perfectly.:o)
Welcome to my blog. I am a 31 year old woman living in the far north of the world, all the way up in Norway. I love being creative when I have the time, and this blog will be my showroom for my makings. But also there will be nature, traveling and my beautiful Labrador too. Enjoy!
