Week in the life 2017 | Friday

Maybe I was too early ordering spring flowers…

33341254644_51832c8fb8_b

…when I opened the doors to the store it was snowing.

I spent my eight hours at work here…

34026315202_cc59f5bf10_b

Then at 3 pm I was out of the uniform waiting for the bus…

34026319562_2e5965f569_b

Rain? Snow? Sunshine? You never know in this part of Norway ๐Ÿ™‚

33799291040_2bb26a80de_b

I like to travel by bus…

34183619555_967f59c8ec_b

I would love to be able to get from A to B in one sitting but that is not happening.

Waiting for bus number two and a five minutes drive to meet my next ride…

34026316832_d212ee3c58_b

My brother leaving work for 40 min to pick me up and take me to my final destination…

33372526993_6a75b66131_b

Once a month I meet up with my sister-in-law to get a hair cut. We do have a hairdresser in Bud but I love the girl who cuts my hair. You know – the type that make you chatter about all and nothing for half an hour. The type that makes you enjoy that half hour very much. The type that cuts your hair just the way you want it…

Waiting for my sister-in-law to get her hair done…

33341256434_e4c06a29e4_b

How about 20 min here…

34183616485_df358b7272_b

Today was a perfect day to warm up this old body…

34052741481_dbda3031d7_b

My sister-in-law drives me back home and we usually have dinner together.

Let me just say that this was not a good day for dieting…

34143066146_2335f45740_b

On a daily basis I overlook the fact that I live next door to this cafe. They do serve good and healthy food on a daily basis but not after 6 pm. I love everything fried but for me that is a once a year happening. In 2017 this day came in April ๐Ÿ™‚

Let us call this a late birthday celebration…

34143068366_8a0a294966_b

Doing my hair should not be a problem Saturday morning…

34052743281_ec5dac6c91_b

A little clean up…

33799292420_83a4f67f46_b

…before bedtime and an another day at work.

Week in the life 2017 | Thursday

My morning is the same every day. So is work. I do try not to make the same dinner every day…

33780038970_b7bb4931d5_b

…but I have to admit that when I find something I like I tend to make that over and over again…

34123875856_162b4eab33_b

Emptying the dishwasher from yesterday while waiting for dinner to be ready…

34007169902_e62bc8409e_b

…wondering how my life was before I got the dishwasher. I love that thing.

Dinnertime is also a good time for me to get updated on today`s news…

34007167602_9fbe745f8c_b

A good trick for me to slow down and chew the food ๐Ÿ™‚

It is rain and wind outside so no walking today.

Instead I take the time to do the laundry…

34007166172_6afc71b7d6_b

The famous socks…

34007164852_c73f3d25ce_b

Step two in my Knit-Along at http://www.jarbo.se/nb/vartecken-kal-selje-del-2/

34033946291_27c9a8c175_b

While knitting I saw this very interesting program on tv about the Railway in Australia…

34164705215_6e88162b72_b

Lot of land between Adelaide and Darwin.

Before going to bed I cleaned the bathroom…

34123864836_b3131f1842_b

I felt bad about dropping out of the spring cleaning challenge going on. Since it a 20 min a day kind of thing I should be able to get back on track.

They lost me at – Wash Your Bathroom Rug and Shower Curtain, I don`t have a shower curtain and my bathroom rug is almost new so I took it outside for a shake down…

34007161482_cbb390dc81_b

…and call it done ๐Ÿ™‚

Week in the life 2017 | Wednesday

Today was a good day for morning routines…

33330883683_87ab5dbe91_b

Wake up call at 5.15 am. Two pieces of bread. One with white cheese and one with brown cheese. One piece of fruit. Coffee.

I am a fast eater so a few minutes later I can be seen outside with another cup of coffee and a smoke. Bad girl.

I make my bed every morning…

34101523226_dc578949bd_b

Before I hit the shower I make lunch…

34011753681_a104348df3_b

At 6.45 am I am ready for work…

34142456015_d2711ae89a_b

I am a demon in the morning with everything in the same order. Good thing I live alone…

34101520906_360454a737_b

I am also a demon when it comes to socks. When I need new socks I buy 30 pairsย in the same color. No stress with pairing them together and it is washing time once a month ๐Ÿ™‚

At work 06.55 and the first thing on my to do list is today`s fresh bread…

33984884452_314c0d1dc2_b

Second is counting the money…

33757353320_6646317ba0_b

Before opening the doors for the costumers – coffee…

33984883302_d952af6f76_b

After 8 am the days is a nice mix of routine, surprises and hard work…

33757355410_009ae091de_b

No walk for me today. Cold, wet and windy…

34011748731_92f6f40406_b

Settling down with an episode of Poirot and some knitting before an early bedtime…

34142453425_1121418eb0_b

…and yes – my evening routine is just as specific as my morning routine.

Week in the life 2017 | Tuesday

Today started late last night…

33739338110_52c3b542e4_b

The driver called and asked if I could come in to work and sign for today`s delivery…

33739347960_26500f562a_b

…and of course I could do that.

Back to work early this morning – not so much in the mood for taking photos at 5.15 am but feeling better at lunch…

33739349220_bedace29cc_b

Lunch is always outside if the weather is ok.

Home for dinner at 3 pm…

8O4A9290

Happy birthday to me…

33739355180_2548fb64b5_b

No cake for number 56 but perfectly happy with two pieces of chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚

A little knitting in the sunshine…

33312935453_abedb74cf4_b

I finished the first step in the knit-along – step two on Thursday.

I have been walking after work (or before) since our “practice” in the one little word class in February…

33966760592_a1fab17c6a_b

Almost every day and I love it…

33966758142_1138761b50_b

…in sunshine and rain…

34124328455_3a039548ef_b

…all but rain and wind…

34083830546_f02cd2242f_b

It is so nice to walk through the woods and come to this view…

33739342680_49ba577f5f_b

Nature is amazing.

I was sure these old trees were dead but no…

33966751572_269ff73216_b

I have never seen this before…

33739343050_43f9fbb905_b

…they are coming to life.

Even this week is all about counting the calories…

33739351830_a86eda1dc4_b

I like my evening meal to look and taste like dessert ๐Ÿ™‚

33281950574_45df90e2c0_b

…that is a perfect meal to end the day.

Week in the life 2017 | Monday

While Norway has been closed down for the Easter Holiday I have worked most days. This is a new thing for me and I am not sure I like working through every Sunday and Holiday during the spring. I might have a story about that.

This Monday morning I was up early for my walk…

33258816354_4616f76717_o

Walking at 6.30 in the morning and you can be sure to walk alone ๐Ÿ™‚

33289591073_ff71465ae4_o

All kinds of weather out there – snow, rain and sunshine…

33289592003_d24b67ebf1_o

70 min later I am back and ready to work…

33971071211_2debf27c02_o

We have open shop but the bakeries are closed…

33971071401_66f1b96edb_o

Almost done and feeling sorry for myself sometimesย makes me doย bad choises…

33289592783_c1a58c0d16_o

Today was not a good day for dieting ๐Ÿ™‚

Back home for a shower and work again. Little boy Anton came by to say godbye before he travelled back to Trondheim…

33289591463_25bc33a101_o

Not that he had time to talk – because he was going home. Home to his things ๐Ÿ™‚

The last three hours I spent at home knitting – ready to go back to work if needed…

8O4A9252

So much fun to knit again…

8O4A9258

I finally had the energy to clean the entrance…

8O4A9263

Not my favorite thing to do.

And I found a survieving plant from years back in between the weeds…

8O4A9255

Late dinner this last day of Easter…

8O4A9268

The first one this Easter…

8O4A9272

…and there is this thing about getting yourself in the Picture for the Week in the life album…

8O4A9280

I am still trying to find out things with this camera…

8O4A9285

Ok – maybe a little more practice ๐Ÿ™‚
