Flowers on a Sunday

Came home a couple of days ago, new flowers in full bloom.
Her på Vestlandet venter sommeren på seg, men vi nyter dagene likevel. Håper du og dine gjør det samme! :o) /

Here in the western part of Norway, summer-sunshine is still awaiting. But we are enjoying our days regarless of weather, hope you are doing the same! :o)

Ha en riktig god søndags kveld!
Have a very nice Sunday evening!

Time to go to market circa 1919?
Rationing-card had to be brought of course to buy peas.

Et av rasjoneringskortene jeg fant i en av mine eventyrjakter blant ting og tang. Rasjoneringskort måtte til! Det er rammet opp og henger på veggen:)


Vær vennlig og glad mot alle du møter så får du garantert et smil tilbake på din vei!/
Wear a cheeful expression and give a smile to every creature you meet and you will surely get a smile back.

Summer on the way!!

Such a lovely time we are stepping into now, so nice to wake up to birds singing and sunshine!
I have a place in Oslo where I am these days and the city is beautifully filled with flowers and green parks. Just planted a lot of flowers on the balcony here, pictures to come:)

Here are some old letters from familiy-members who went to America to try their fortune in a time with great difficulties in our country. Very fascinating to read. Stories and great adventures from far away times, from people who I never knew but is my family. It's a very precious memory to have and I'm very grateful to have them! :)

Enjoy your day!

God morgen! Good morning!
Dagen er fylt med møter, jobb og innspurt med en stor oppgave som skal inn neste uke. Det er bare å brette opp ermene disse dagene og få det gjort! Presser inn en effektiv treningsøkt i dag, min erfaring viser at det gir sår tiltrengt overskudd på slike lange dager. Gleder meg til det.
Viser noen bilder av noen søte små som har vært med i familien i rundt 50 år:)

The day is filled with meetings, work and the final process of a big task which is due to be finished next week. There's nothing else to do but pull up the sleeves and get it done! I'm taking the time to have a work-out today, my experience is that it gives some much needed energy on such bussy days. Looking forward to that.
Here are some pictures of some little friends that has been in the family for around 50 years:)

Have the very best day this Thursday!

Sommer og sol

God morgen/good morning!

Strålende sol og sommer-morgen her jeg sitter på balkongen og drikker morgenkaffen. Hadde en fantastisk hyggelig 17.mai-feiring, om ikke så mye sol så veldig deilig temperaturer. Håper alle i Norge hadde en fin markering av nasjonaldagen vår - jeg synes det er en fantastisk hyggelig dag å ta vare på :-)
I dag reiser jeg vestover etter en stund i storbyen, bursdagsfeiring står på programmet!

Have a very good day!
Remember to embrace kindness:-)
All the best,

Bussy days...

A time for work, just have to keep focus on that a bit. There is a time for everything, is it not so? :-)
Hope everyone is having a blesses May-month.

Hope is believing in spite of evidence,then watching the evidence change.

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday.

A couple of weeks ago the spring really blossemd - Of course we had to use the opportunity to take our boat for a first ride this year! It was a lovely day and really wonderful to feel the salt of the sea and the familiar sound of our Saab-engine in our precious 26 feet wooden boat.

Our boathouse.

A little ferry that goes in a shuttle between the main-land and a small island of 100 inhabitants.
Have a very beautiful Sunday !

Wherever you go, whoever you meet, and whatever you do, give love and appreciation, because that is your true nature. How do you know it is your true nature? You feel so good when you are giving it!

Listen with your whole heart!
Love well!
Embrace kindness!

Have the most wonderful Monday!!!!!!!!!! :-))))

Mirror mirror (or picture) on the wall!

Good morning!

Rain rain rain on a tired morning.. The birds are singing though and the coffee-cup is large and hot! It will be a good day! :-)

Our walls in the old house are filled with pictures of our family. Some I know, some I have not idea how they are in relation. Still, very fun to see all these people looking at me from the walls!

The biggest picture above the sofa is of one of my great-great-grandparents, who lived in the 1800s. My great-great-grandfather was borned in 1832 and his name was Josef Andersson. His wife's name was Isalina Pedersdotter born in 1840.(Translated to English it's Petersdaughter, a common way to write last-names those days).

Two beautiful teen-agers - John Amundsen age 13, and Lovise Amundsen age 16- .

Looking forward to a good day, hope you do the same!
Happiness is a state of being, so be happy now! :-)

Lot of love,

Some coffee anyone?
