Goodbye to a good companion

I think I might have to face the fact that my beloved computer no longer is up to it’s tasks. For some reason this last week no web browsers will work on it. It has got an internett connection because it has no trouble playing music from my online spotify, but it will not allow me to open any web pages including my blog. It’s getting quite old and I must admit that it was never a very good computer to begin with, but I find it a bit sad that I will have to let it go and buy a new one. I am one of those people who always seem to put off getting new technology. The fact that I have a new Samsung S7 lying in a box at my desk because I still have not found the cover I want for it, probably is a good exemple.

wpid-20151017_175506.jpgI am spending this weekend getting some neccesary hosehold chores done and getting ready for a very busy week ahead. I have borrowed a computer for a little while and luckily I have my phone and Ipad, so I will hopefully be able to update myself on what is happening in the blogging world even if I don’t have a computer that functiones.

I hope you’re all doing well and that the weekend is treating you good.

Saturday chill

Lovely seafood for lunch

This weekend I have had a little more energy than I have had lately. So yesterday we went out for a few beers and had a very enjoyable friday evening. Today I actually got a few very necessary house hold duties. They have been terrible neglected over the last while. There is still a little to do, but it’s a good start. Then I met up with a friend for a lovely lunch. Now I’m enjoying watching the womens 30 km skiing, hoping for a Norwegian win.

What the rest of the will bring I’m not sure of, but so far so good!

Fastelavn

Today it’s fastelavn or bun sunday again and I will be sending some of the day baking and watching the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2017! Happy sunday to all of you.

The thoughts and life of me

Last sunday was the Norwegian fastelavn. For all of you who don’t know what this is you can read more here. Basically what it has turned in to, at least for me, is a day to make and eat buns. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many photos of buns on Facebook or Instagram as this sunday. I did not post any pictures her, but I made some. And I’ll post the photos here instead.

My version of Fastelavn buns. They might not look like a work of art, but they tasted great. My version of Fastelavn buns. They might not look like a work of art, but they tasted great.

As my family and I are intolerant to milk, in anything but small amounts, it did not seem like a good idea to make the traditional buns with tons of whipped cream and jam. Sure there are good non-milk alternatives, but I like my vanilla cream and jam ones better. And as they don’t have…

William Strunk Jr. phrased it best in the must-have book for writers of all levels, Elements of Style:

“Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.”

There’s a tendency to fill writing with needless words; this can bog a reader down in details, distracting from your message. Mastering the art of decluttering words frees you to effectively capture readers’ attention, sparking intrigue and affirming expertise in what you are writing about.

Here are some must-have tips to help you do just that…

Weekend feeling

Sushi and passionfruit beer makes a good start to the weekend

It’s weekend again! And for me it’s a weekend in between a lot of busy times. Som this weekend is all about relaxing and doing some of the things I feel guilty for not doing when I’m busy. The facts that a lot of the things are enjoyable is just a great bonus.

So I started off leaving work a little earlier than I had anticipated. And I went to get some lovely sushi and treated myself to a lovely craft beer with passionfruit. I did a few things that needed doing and the just relaxed on the couch before meeting up with some friends at the pub for a couple.

Today is  a slow morning, enjoying my coffee, reading some blogg posts before we’re going out for brunch later. Thank it’s up to my mums house to help her with a few things and get nice food. The Norwegian men’s  handball team are playing in the world championship som we will enjoy the game on the couch.

And som far there is nothing much planned for Sunday! Ah, I love weekends like this.

Hope your weekend is treating you as well as mine seem to be treating me.
