Wednesday was the day I planned to clean but the stacks of books all over the place was kind of scary so I sat down knitting instead…

The books have been cluttering my home since January waiting for my shelves to arrive. Things take time around here ๐Ÿ™‚

Clear but Cold…

Keeping and eye on the weather prognosis that promises warmer weather…

The sound of kids prepping for May 17 makes me happy…

After workย  – step three in my Knit-Along…

…and just as I was finishing I lost a stitch ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sure it can be fixed but now I can`t find it again so I better wait for som daylight.

Woke up to a bit of snow this morning but the weather prognosis says it`s gonna be warmer later in the week. I hope so because I can feel the longing for spring…

Week in the life 2017 | Sunday

I was at work at 8 am…

33839689330_11d418632e_b

Just enough time for coffee and a newspaper before opening the shop for the day…

33381947224_b2905d1154_b

I didn`t have time to read the “dating guide for the elder”. Maybe I should have made time ๐Ÿ™‚

Working ten hours alone means no break and after putting in 16000 steps I don`t have much energy to do much more today.

Breaking news from the village I was born and raised – I grew up just down the road…

33412965723_5cbdb28e8a_b

I don`t know the family living there now but this house is the reason my mother met my father in 1952. My father came to the village as a carpenter to build the kitchen in this house and he never left.

In Trondheim little boy Anton crashed after playing hard…

I had a snack after work and took my plants outside for a little sunshine and some fresh air…

33412969023_47252106d8_b

…and now it is snowing.

It is bedtime again and I am thinking about how I want to do my album for this “Week in the life”. I always try to give a picture of how life is for my extended family but this time has been all about me. There was no time to nag everyone about the sharing thing this year. So I have not decided how to do my album. There are three ways I can do this…

  • Make a 6×8 album with my week just for me.
  • Add my pages to my “one little word” album. The theme of this week fits perfectly with the month of April. With the questions hanging on my bathroom wall I think I can illustrate a lot of answers with this weeks content.
  • I can add my week to my ongoing family albums of Weeks in the life. Even if it is all about me ๐Ÿ™‚

I do have a few family stories to tell. Like the three musketeers arriving their cabin at almost freezing point…

33412964403_26d4c2909a_b

…and little boy Anton and his Easter egg…

34066256922_8ea7d2d71a_o

…and visiting his grandma`s new house…

33412612983_3bef83f0fd_o

The princess tricking her mother to a walk up the mountain in a snowstorm…

33381945804_56c8465463_b

Or my sister in Law who had to travel to Oslo to buy her new bed…

33381569984_eb4cbb1a4c_o

A bed that finally arrived Friday and was set up Saturday…

She will sleep like a princess. (And if she does I might want one of these myself). If I start saving now I might be able to in about five years ๐Ÿ™‚

Things to think about while I sleep in to Monday…
