The edible town party

At the same time as the Glad Mat festival that I wrote about, there is another festival called the edible town party going on around 1,5 kilometer away. This is a good festival with a few food trucks and a few resturant seeing food outside. The focus here is to eat nice food and relax.

I visited the festival with a blanket to sit on and a book. There is more room here as there is a large area to sit and enjoy. This is a bit more family friendly and you can even bring your own food should you want. I didn’t join in the free yoga lessons and I was too old to get my face painted, but lying down in the grass, by the sea with a good book and good beer is quite a good way to spend an afternoon.

This festival is in an up and comming part og town where they have built a lot of new small parks in between old renovated industry buildings and luckily for me it’s not to far from where I live.

The weather has continued to impress this weekend and today I took the opportunity to go to the beach and have a swim.

Quiet weekend 

This weekend I went to our summer-house to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet after a busy week. There are few things as calming as waking up to the sound of singing birds and the waves hitting the beach.

Walking in the woods

The weather was really on my side. And I got to do a lot of nice walks in the woods and enjoyed listening to the birds and the beautiful sunshine. The signs of spring was all around.

I am so ready for easter holiday now!

Gray Sunday Again

It’s probably a bit my fault for jinxing the weather in my post yesterday, but the weather today was nothing as nice as then. When I woke up this morning it was pouring down with rain and there was also quite a bit of fog.

We decided to spend the day at my mother’s house where she has kindly let the boyfriend lend a room for his 3d priter (I suspect that half the reason she did this was to make sure he came by often, so he can help her with things, but it turned out to be a case of everybody wins). I got myself a cup of coffee and continued to enjoy your nice blog posts.

The weather cleared up a bit after a while and I just had to get out for a walk to get some fresh air. Even if it was not the best of weather I enjoyed the walk and soaked in the signs of spring that I could find. The birds was tweeting so much I swear the were trying to out-tweet #sundayblogshare, and the trees look quite ready for springtime.

Now I will do some more blogg-reading and then we’re getting some thai take-away for a very lazy Sunday dinner. And I’m going to make sure that I do my best to start the next week as rested as I can, because it’s going to be a busy one.

Weekend and sun

The weather has been very on and off, but spring has defenetly arrived

I have been very busy this week and it will be even worse next week. So unfortunantly I have neglected my blog and the blogs I usually like to read. But that’s just the way it is at times. Hopefully I will have some time to catch up with some of you over the weekend. 

Dinner after a long day at the office yesterday

I am very much looking forward of easter and a bit of a holiday. It’s been quite some time since I have felt the need for a vacation this strongly. But even if I am very busy it’s a good kind of busy and I am enjoying.

Today has been quite a good day. I woke up early got a few hours of work in. Then it was time for lunch, some gift shopping and a lovely walk in the sunshine we were lucky to get today. Now It’s time for some blog reading and a cup of tea.

I hope you’re all doing well and that life is treating you kind.

Spring weekend

Old canning factory

This weekend has had a very spring like feeling. After sending a me day on friday I had a relaxing evening and a chilled out morning. After that I had a entertainment competition with my band. It was all good fun and not a serious thing. The highlight of the competition was a visiting band from Wales. Consisting mostly of elderly people that started playing late in life.

When I had played in the competition, I hurried home to go change for one of my best friends’ 30th birthday party. There was sooo much good food and the company was great. We enjoyed some fun party games and a few drinks.

So today started a bit slow. I went out for a nice breakfast and the weather was so nice that I went for a good long walk by the sea through an old industrial area that is slowly but surely is being done up quite nicely in the old style.

Now I will go back to the wonderful #sundayblogshare at the “big up your blog” group at Facebook and enjoy some good blog posts.

Grey Sunday!

The Oil museum of Stavanger and grey skies 

Yesterday I celebrated the 30th birthday of one of my closest friends. It was a very good party and it lasted till early morning. So today I decided it was a good idea to go for a walk to get some fresh air. The weather could have been better, it was grey, a bit of fog and a light drizzle of rain. But the fresh air was nice and did me good.

What have you decided to do the is weekend?
