Evening walk

Lights on statue of Alexander Kielland makes a Nice effect

I have been quite busy at work lately and I had to go in on Saturday for a few hours. On Friday I was so tired that I had to turn down an invitation to join some friends eating at a nice burger place. And after work Saturday I really did not want to get up to too much. But after a few hours spent doing as little as possible, I decided that I needed some fresh air and decided to go for an evening walk in the town center.

The weather was quite cold, but nice and crisp and perfect for walking, so going out for the walk was a good choice of evening activities. Today it is snowing and my walk earlier was cut a bit short and I went to eat some nice pancakes instead. As it is important to spend some time enjoying yourself over the weekend. I have been invited to go to my mothers house for dinner and was thinking of walking up to her house, but looking out the window I might leave that for another time.

Apart from working more than usual I have not been up to too much the last week and I hope that next week will bring a little more spare time, and that I will be inspired to do something other than work and go for walks.

Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend and that you will have a great week ahead.

Another week over

This week has been very busy at work and I have been struggling a little bit with my sleep. This is not the best combination, but hopefully things will stabilize and my sleep will sort it self out. The first is a luttle unlikely, but the second usually do. I did manage to pay my mother a visit and to go see a friend of mine one evening, but apart from that and band I have not been up to much after work.

While I described last weekend as busy, but good this weekend has mostly been a lazy one. Friday I was so tired coming home from work that after a little walk outside and some shoe shopping I just spent the rest of the evening on the couch watching Netflix. After such a lazy evening I went to bed early.

The going to bed early was a good thing as my habit of waking up early in the morning is not just present during the weekdays. So I had a nice quiet morning drinking coffee, reading blog posts and doing some work on my own blog for later. Friday came with so much snow that they had to close the runway at the airport for a few hours, but Saturday morning most of it was gone here in the center of town. I ran a few errands and then took to the sofa again, to watch some skiing and relax. I also made sure I got a good walk in seeing as the weather was sunny and the snow looked nice. The evening was yet again spent on the sofa with my man, Netflix, sushi and a beer or two.

Today is going to be spent on blogs, watching skiing on TV, hanging out with my friend and her little baby and going for a walk. To me this is a perfect weekend to balance the hectic week I had. I feel like, so far, I am keeping up with the goals I set for the year. Yes, I could always have done more or better, but I believe that by changing things slowly it’s easier to keep things up.

I hope the weather stays nice for the next week so that walking outside will be as good as this week. I don’t see things calming down at work for the week to come, but I am managing. I have caught up on some sleep this weekend and feel like I have the energy I need to meet a new week in the best possible way. The week will also bring with it the release concert for my friends new album, and I am very much looking forward to that.

Hope the week and weekend has been treating you well and that you are all doing your best to keep up with the goals for 2018. Unless you have found out that they didn’t work for you.

January weekend

This weekend has been a very good combination of busy and relaxing. It was rehersal with my band on friday evening, Saturday and Sunday all day. We are rehersing for this years National Championship and we have a conductor comming over from Wales to help us. It’s busy, but fun.

After rehearsals on Saturday I went out for a spinn down the country side before we went to IKEA to have a look and to get some dinner. Then we just spent the night in watching a show called the Americans on Netflix.

Today it was very cold and windy. This morning when I drove to band there was a bit of snow in the air. But after band it was time for a bit of the walk. Luckily the snow had stopped and the wind had let up a bit. And we had a wonderful walk in the crisp winter weather. Now it’s time for some more “internetting” a curry from the closest thai place. 

I do hope all of you have had as nice a weekend as I have!

Waterfall from the start of the walk

Last Sunday the weather was lovely and we decided to stop for a little walk on our way down from the wedding.

As we were close to Svandalsfossen, a lovely waterfall, we thought it would be nice to walk up to have a look.

The waterfall is at it’s most impressive when the snow on the mountains are melting, but I thought it was a great slight in autumn as well. It sure was noisy enough!
