life, week 36

I had a canning date with my friend T and my new friend O | raider svigermors norgesglasslager for mandagskveldens matauk 

"I'm watching you granddad, so you don't fall on my head."

the renovation is ON | our house renovation, week 1

on today's timetable: hiking | Synesvarden + Steinkjerringa

A huge benefit of living with my in-laws': afternoon playdates at our friends' gorgeous house only one minute away 

father-in-laws' plum wine to be

My husband has dinosaur cutting skills. Who knew?!

Yay for my landscape architect sister who is willing to play architect for the day. Bonus: baby boy belly!

things I like lately

"Take a photo of my teddy, mamma!", June 2014 | Agfa Precisa 100, Minolta SRT 101 

- sandwich with salami and brie for my work lunch every day this week 
- morning mist and pastel colored skies
- lovely weather all week 
- (still) driving my mother-in-law's convertible to/from work
- Sara seems to enjoy her new kindergarten
- a work meeting with lit candles, cheese and crackers 
- this very inspiring post by Maria 
- been laughing of this cartoon all week (might be most funny for Norwegians)
- starting to feel a liiiitle bit more in control in my new job 
- still so very thankful for all the help we get from our parents in this busy time of new job and house renovation 
- Sara has started to draw humans (hodefoting på norsk) - proud mamma! 
- my sister visited from Tromsø last weekend - so excited to see her growing baby boy belly - I'm becoming an aunt in November! 

- - - 

Things I don't like lately

- spending very, very little time with Sara these days
- the renovation progress is slower than expected due to unexpected challenges with the drainage around the house 
- due to work, I still haven't been to Sara's kindergarten (Sølve and my mother-in-law has taken care of it) - it makes my mamma heart ache

life, week 35

evening view from the home office | being a new teacher is a LOT of work

her new temporary bedroom | his old boy's room

my view for the day | stomach flu really, really sucks

a whole lot of sleep and rest + spending my day with this little one = just what the doctor ordered 

"helping" grandpa bring the firewood to the stacking pile

#caughtgramming | sunflowers galore at Stord/Haugesund University College

student dinner - grown up student style

Friday September 29: Sølve raised the flag to celebrate that our house is officially ours

rooftop window view

an early taste of autumn

Sunday work | being sick and then away for studies mean there is a lot to catch up on

We have a Japanese maple in our garden and I absolutely love it. It's one of my favorite trees ever.

our house renovation, week 1

Friday August 29: the house is officially ours!

6 pm light

I found a patch of dappled afternoon sum light in our basement.

The renovation in ON!

So much work ahead!

Just like that the terrace is gone - because we need to fix the drainage around the house.
