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…

Things to look forward to!

Royal Marine Hotel

Royal Marine Hotel

When your significant other is from another place than you it follows that you need to spend some of your holidays visiting family and friends where they are from. For me this other “home” is Ireland and that suits me fine. I really enjoy to visit the emerald isle and the wonderful people over there.

This easter we’re going back to visit and I can’t wait. A 10 days stay in the middle of april has all the markings of a lovely stay. I have already booked a few nights at The Royal Marines Hotel, where I stayed last year. And had a lovely time.

Cheers

It’s lovely to have something good to look forward to especially since I’ve been feeling off all week.

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?

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…
