A lovely Autumn trip

This weekend I felt the need to just relax and regroup. And I decided to take a trip to our summer-house, even if it’s not summer anymore.

The weather was very up and down, but I brought some good books and got to go for some amazing walks. I managed to miss the worst of the rain and only got a little of the hail storm while I was out and about. And when I was inside the weather wasn’t very important to me.

After a long walk on Saturday I went over to a nearby little town to enjoy, among other things, a lovely antique shop. I also bought a few things I forgot to bring and got a nice coffee that I enjoyed outside.

We got an extra hour to sleep this weekend as well because Norway is changing from summertime to wintertime and that suited me as this weekend was very much about relaxation for me!

  1. What a lovely relaxing break. Downtime with walks and a book is so soothing. You are right about the extra hour in bed, it felt like a real treat. We’ve been visiting family three hours drive from here. Been busy out meeting everyone, but special to catch up and have lots of lovely meals. I need a break now! A couple of days at the Stuga would not go amiss!

  2. Never a bad time to take a getaway. Good for you. We’re taking one this coming weekend ourselves. And we turn our clocks back this weekend too. Extra hour of sleep Sunday! Yeah!!πŸ˜ƒ

  3. I also am a big fan of antiques shops. Did you buy anything? In the UK our clocks also went back. I like the fact that my Kindle and other electronic devices automatically adjust to the revised time without the need for human intervention! Kevin

      1. Glad you got some nice cards. Its always great to get something which isn’t mass produced but has been made with care by a craftsman. Many years ago I had a girlfriend who made cards. I may still even have one in a drawer somewhere! Kevin
