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.

A me day

Sun was shining as I waited for the bus this morning.

Today I took a day off from work. I had no big plans I was just feeling like I wanted to use some of the extra hours I have saved up lately just for me. I kind of started yesterday by going to the hairdresser. This is not something I’m a fan of, but it’s always nice when It’s done.

Today I woke up around the time I usually get up, had breakfast and got on the bus to get a massage from a friend who has her own business. It was very relaxing and wonderful.

Lunch!

After the massage I took the bus home to do some laundry before I headed out for lunch at a nice little place nearby. I treated myself to a lovely tapas platter and a beer. Now I am going to go for a good walk before I meet up with the man. 

Wish you all a very good weekend!

Norwegian dish: Komla (potao balls)

This Sunday I spent time at my mother’s house preparing a traditional Norwegian dish kalled komla.This is a kind of potato ball. I like making traditional food like this because it makes sure the traditions are kept alive.

We made quite a lot as we were having quite a few relatives over for dinner.

Dough ready

After the dough is made you shape it in to balls and put them in boiling water with stock from the lamb meat and let them cook untill they are done.

You serve them with salted meat of lamb, sausages, mashed swede and melted butter. As for me I like to enjoy a beer with the dish.

Ready to eat

Harry and Paddy weekend

This weekend has been very lovely. Friday was St. Patrick’s day and it’s also the anniversary for me and my man. We celebrated by eating at a resturant called ” The adventures of Harry Pepper, the telephone man, on his way to Mexico” Harry Pepper for short. The resturant has been around since 1986, just like me. And they serve great mexican/southern american food. They have a vast selection of tequila and lovely drinks, but we decided to stick to beer as we had planned to drink Guinness later on. I ordered the mixed fajitas and it was very tasty.

Mixed fajitas with beef, chicken and scampi

After the nice meal We headed to the nearest Irish pub, the Irishman to enjoy some beer and the St.Patrick’s day spirit. The place was packed and the live music was good so we got the spirit as we entered the door.

Saturday it was time to go to our summer house and start getting it ready for use, after the winter. It waited till we had all the pillows, carpets and such from the first floor out in the sunshine to air before it decided to start snowing a little. 

Today we’re celebrating my brother’s birthday with relatives at my mother’s house. Good food and good company is a great day to end the week!

What have you been up to this weekend?
