Easter in pics Part I

Fringilla coelebs male.
Big moose was here! LOL!
The river is open now, but a couple of days ago it was packed with ice.

Erithacus rubecula or Red Robin as most people know it by.
Motacilla alba out hunting insects.
The shy Turdus merula came and paid us a visit this morning. Also known as the Blackbird. It sings really beautifully.
I actually don't know what this is, I need to look it up in a bird book.
A beautiful Pyrrhula pyrrhula was here with his female. This is pretty much a winter bird for me, but here they appear when spring comes.
The river is really low since they empty it in the spring, just before the flooding starts. I can see the river bed and all the rocks, it was really a special sight.

A stone church in Torsby - Sweden. I really am fascinated by churches so we had to stop and have a look at this one.

Easter isn't over so I will post more pictures when I can. =) Internet isn't that easy in the mountains where we are going tomorrow, so I won't promis anything before I'm back home.

Have a super fantastic Easter!
Easter hugs to all my followers!

I hate my food allergies!

I really hate not being able to taste all the riches of life...

Normally I live a pretty normal life despite of the allergies and intolerances, but sometimes reallity comes and kicks me in the butt when I least need it.

I'm allergic towards:

I'm intolorant towards:
Spring onion
Chocolate/ coco

Today I was soooo looking forward to eating marinated meat from the grill, but since I can't eat the marinade I've got to have plain chicken and baked potatoe, or something...

Well, I need to get ready for dinner now, hope it tastes better than I'm imagining.

Genuine 50's shoes.

A girl I used to work with had a grandfather whom was the shoe maker in Strømmen.

When he died they found shoes in his attick that was from the 50's and 60's.

I got to buy these red ones for 8 Euros. I really love them since they are so old and represent old Strømmen.=)

If I'd become blind...

Then what happens to penpaling and reading???

I seldomly think about the life of a blind person, other than when I see a leading dog.

Today I got mail from Norwegian organization for blind people, with the alphabet in dots. Never seen it before and got a little intrigued. It seems very hard to read a whole book by looking at these dots! WOW!

Have you ever thought about how you will keep penpaling if uou go blind? It would sure be really sad not to be able to penpal for my part.
