Week in the life 2014 – Hello Thursday

Trondheim…

Good morning to you too at 5.45 am. I will not use your mother`s words to describe you when you are hungry but kicking, screaming and demon was a few of them:) Here you are – distracted for a moment…

I know – a bottle with milk makes it all better…

You take a minute to decide if you want to plan with your mother`s laundry or your toys and you make a good choice…

15486157118_aa4f427449

Your mother can deal with her own shit… One day in the future, your mother understand that a smaller sized towel will reduce your laundry by half. Although I would be the first to acknowledge the love for big towels:)

I could say that giving your dad less food would size down this load. But I know…he is also a demon when it comes to being hungry…

15486339167_c15c67473b

 

Just saying – it is a good thing for your parents to get this stuff out-of-the-way before your grandmother arrives…

You don`t feel guilty about eating the last apple even if your mother wanted it…

15669628391_078441ef6e

With your mom working the evening shift it is Your dad taking care of the evening shift at home…

15647820166_e757cb0f36

I guess you knows how to work your dad:) He thinks a lamp beside your bed will do the trick. I am not so sure I would have been able to sleep with this image in the ceiling…

Lyngstad…

Grandma is leaving work ready for Halloween in Trondheim…

15647818286_91810645f8

Leaving the Three musketeers behind. Hey you – thank you for the cute video you shared last night. It is hard for me to believe you working your pumpkin without fighting:)

 

15671553705_2f5dc973da

You have a long day so I Guess this is a nice way to unwind…

15647820196_97e1bc9912

Peaceful Bliss.

Bud…

I woke up with the best intentions of getting something done and got one of the many boxes from storage…

15486150798_fff4b5192e

In the end I spent my day scrapbooking…

15486369107_90611c2803

Working on my “Unfinished Project number two”…

Week in the life – Hello Wednesday

15637578726_633f349138In Trondheim…

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wish I had your energy at 6.30. Of course I don`t have this adventure to wake up to. Everyday you explore this tunnel several times.

 

 

15658618871_1d3561be46

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course exploring makes you thirsty, No good wake up ritual without a bottle of milk.

 

 

 

15474666889_f00ff91128

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are imprisoned while your mother get ready to take you to kindergarten. You take great joy in the television and I like that you can focus at the TV and play with both hands at the same time.

 

 

15658620271_bdf7f9dd4e

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your mom walk you to the kindergarten today and you love to spend the day with the other kids. Maybe you inherited your father’s extroverted personality?

 

15475155218_4842da2c47

 

 

 

 

 

Your mom is no morning person. No early breakfast for her, but bread with banana and cocoa are perfect when she comes home from kindergarten - soaking wet.

 

 

…and she need all the energy she can obtain. The only thing I can say is – Anton has left the building. I don`t know how your parents deal with this phase of their life but I would have gone in to hiding. although I could say that this gene you probably have from me:)

15040561394_8def623c0f

I will give you a clue – you better behave now because you know grandma and grandpa is coming in a few days and you know how grandpa feels about mess:) You better not give your mom a hard time.

Energized by cocoa your mother get your mess under control and everything is back in order for another adventure and playtime…

15475159178_c2d7d1b978

Bud…

Vacation or not – I still wake up before 6 am. I`m also a morning person like baby Anton but I do not have his energy. I woke up to the same weather this morning – rain. The North West of Norway was hit hard…

15658620521_a13f9f5492

Hundreds evacuated and many in danger of losing their home. If a tsunami don`t hit we should be safe around here. Still no sign of “mannen” (The Man) falling down…

15040542884_2e9843eb77

…these days called the “Jellyman”. Geologists predicted that it would fall down around 8 o’clock last night but the rain stopped and it was colder so now there‘s no telling when that happens.

In the morning hours we had thunder and lighting so the morning was spent moving stuff around instead of being online…

15634999606_7ccddbf31e

I finally accepted that rug under the kitchen table like my sister in law suggested back in December. I can be a stubborn bitch…

15472576918_a66c97c91f

Now I guess I have to let go of the blue ones:)

Something warmer in color might be a good idea with the weather we are experiencing these days…

15475148798_3d6847191e

Even signs of snow. I do not have to feel bad about staying inside…

15474660879_fd52793e5d

So much better to stay inside and do some cleaning…

15475333767_a8ae3d3877

Move stuff and all the dust bunnies are on the move. Cleaning isn`t one of my everyday things. Cleaning is a Project. But – with no work all day I have the time.

Then shower and a nice lunch…

15475146588_e3f2ab58a8

Did you think I had my meals at the kitchen table any ordinary day? No – not at all. I never do. This is real life…

15475720970_239a4e62be

I`m always in a hurry when I eat in the kitchen and that is not a good thing.

15658606471_a3d48cde4f

Fish-burgers for dinner. Thank you Mona for sharing this  delicious meal with me. You got to love good colleagues who share the food they make. So tasteful…

15475140158_784b9f72c7

Now – planning for another day…

Style Cure 2014 – Floor Plan

This is my way…

15659531502_f285d388a1

Before I have loved to use the  Urbanbarn.com floor plan…

9457711339_8ba893a3dc

Today it was much easier to use a pencil…

15039869944_c89aeb1bf2

But…no matter how much planning I do I have to look and feel to be sure…

I so much wanted the desk to sit in the room and make it possible for me to look out in the room…

15472085549_34aef948c7

…but some how that did not look good…

15473145220_8ee703e601

I have moved around, sat around and walked around to get a feeling of the place all day:)

I have taken a lot of photos from all sides and found that very helpful…

15658712465_c3dd10182e

Does it feel good when you enter and how does it feel sitting down?

15472078419_0543f38889

Tomorrow I will do it all over again while waiting for the next assignment from   Apartment Therapy

Week in the life 2014 – hello Tuesday

You got to love technology. It is so nice to wake up and receive this in the mail early in the morning…

15632620946_c3a437626e

 

 

 

 

 

 

He pull the blankets to the floor and enjoy himself making sweet noises – hmmm…

 

 

Now – breakfast before dad takes him to Kindergarten…

15470774630_06b1bfdccd

Having the postal service in the same building is a good thing when the rain is pouring all day. I surprised myself and waited until this morning before opening my parcel from IKEA…

15657163952_9fb915ed70

I finally find the self timer but I may need a little more practise:)

15469697369_dc95ef5abe

Assembling IKEA Furniture is no Challenge but man did I wish I had a handyman in the house or at least some of the tools the handyman usually have. Not that I am any good with men or tools…

15470371987_81091dc223

This was a better idea…

15035594144_edac59a98f

I have no idea where this idea came from…

15656340255_5c060ccbf4

It has been years since I took a bath…

15036184063_22496648fe

I am just saying – this will be a daily event this week :)

So –  back to work…

15470371987_81091dc223

This was a Challenge but I finally made it and after the fourth leg I had blisters in my hand:)

I finished my unfinished scrapbook project number one before I went to bed…

15470766510_00194061ef

This one has a new favorite toy…

15470378017_7808e76b9a

I did promise not to bore you with pics of every meal but I did have dinner last night…

Style Cure 2014 – the outbox

I love the outbox…

15627824296_0921bcc9a2

…and this one was easy. This was all I had to move out of the living room. A few Things waiting to be moved back where they belong and a few things needs a new home.

I am a bad shopper. Can`t even remember ever buying anything I did not regret. One thing for sure – the desk arriving from IKEA today does not fit where I wanted it…

15031407273_c6ea33ef58

Not at all like I visioned it…

15651538825_9909ae75d1

Back to planning…
