What life events have you learned the most from?

This is a hard question to answer for me. I am not the kind of person who admits to have made the wrong decisions. I live with my choices and make it work. That work so well that sometimes I don`t realize it was a mistake.

But there was a Saturday night at the end of February 1998…


I was so tired after burning the lights in both ends for so long and I was drunk. All it took was five minutes and I had resigned my position and decided to pack up and move. ( I did have a job offer so there was no drama).

That decision did change the path of my life but was it a mistake? And did I learn something from this? Not so much because I have done it again. And again. Still not sure if it was a mistake the first time around…


It`s like an itch. An itch for change. When the itching has been going on long enough I make five-minutes decisions. For better or for worse I have learned to live with the result.

I have a bit of journaling to do to make these thoughts clear. I am not totally sure I want to know why I make hasty decisions in important moments.

Around here – how to eat all that onion…


I am not a “harvesting from nature” kind of person:) but I am happy to eat the harvest when it is prepared and ready to eat.

Piccolo tomatoes, squash, sweet peas, pasta and cod with wild garlic (Ramson)…

When wild garlic relieves abdominal pain and strengthens digestion, it has been used against diarrhea, colic, flatulence, indigestion and loss of appetite. The whole plant is used as a tea against intestinal worms. Wild garlic is also good for asthma, bronchitis and emphysema. The juice stimulates the local blood flow and can therefore be of value in the treatment of pain in the joints. The herb has a potent antibacterial activity and is a natural antibiotic that is effective against a variety of bacteria and fungi.

My Brother and his wife herb butter and it was yummy With Cod. I have never eaten pasta with fish but it was a nice touch.
