life, week 15

Keeping up the new cabin coffee making ritual: eagerly helping grandpa grind the beans.

Perk of getting up early: watching the sun rise. 

ludo debut and loving it

Listening to her play whilst grading student papers. Oh the life of a (still quite fresh) teacher...

I asked her to find things to bring to Voss; love how organised it is. (If you know me, you know how organised I am, so seeing my daughter being organised - at least for a few minutes - makes my heart sing.)

Easter 2017, part two: Voss bound

Timmy time // mamma time

reaching // deep

Such a beautiful day! I even got some grading done. #thelifeofateacher

We opted for hanging out by the lake instead of skiing. It was the best choice.

favourite toddler // favourite dog

A campfire and hotdogs are always a good idea.

Watching dry leaves dance in the wind. Laughing.

things I like lately

from the Easter 2012 archives // Easter is one of my favorite holidays because we always spend plenty of time outdoors // Fuji Velvia 100F, Canon EOS 500N

- I got to keep my job! (I'm in a temporary position until the end of the school year; the position is now extended for another year. Fingers crossed it will be a permanent position some time in the future.)
- Easter holiday; first a few days at the mountain cabin with my in-laws and then days at Åsly (the family holiday home at Voss) with friends
- the first daffodils, coltsfoot and wood anemones of the season + budding trees - spring has sprung for real
- biking to work every day this week
- evening walks around the lake whilst listening to an audiobook. Started "How to Kill a Mockingbird" but wasn't in the mood for it, so switched to something easier; the third book in the Bridget Jones series.
- this interview with Sarah Britton of My New Roots
- In my fridge: Inside The First Mess' stunning seasonal arsenal 
- hearing Anania Ngoliga play the illimba (thumb-piano) live (via DKS) - such a beautiful sound of that instrument!
- Live redder verden. Litt.
- so fascinated by zero waste life, for example via Zero Waste HomeTrash is for Tossers, Grønare Kvardag and Grønne Jenter. Not planning to do this myself though.
- Søstrene ville ha mer friluftsliv i hverdagen. Det førte til 52 overnattingsturer på 52 uker. + Tursøstre
- roasted root tangles video by Green Kitchen Stories
- listebonanza
- this interview with one of my favorite food bloggers, Molly Wizenberg
- Linn's last post (in Norwegian) - I can so relate to how she describes her body's reaction to sugar - got so inspired I bought her 10 days kickstart menu. Not sure when I'll do it though; probably after my exam - which is in just 11 days...

Things I don't like lately

- stomach ache, a kind that I have never felt before
- being bloated (sorry, was that too much information?)
- have not been 100 % faithful to this...

life, week 14

last light // last life 

Avocado sandwich for lunch at work, but dreaming of sweet carbs and chocolate. Fumbling my way back to project #iquitsweettreats. How about you?

When students wish you a happy Easter With a homemade sweet treat. Perk of being a middle School teacher. // Project #iquitsweettreats does not start until tomorrow...

Nibblies, bubbles and catching up with girlfriends - the very best way to start the Easter holiday!

She was full of complaints on the way up. (I remember being just like her when I was little...) Little did she know about all the fun she would have skiing up and down the hills with her pappa afterwards. 

8 am cabin morning idyll. I even had coffee.

Both were so eager to help grandpa grind the coffee beans. A new coffee making ritual at the cabin.

life, week 13


Some Mondays require wine.

good night // the tulips get to sleep in the chilly bedroom too

good light makes everything pretty - even the mega messy lego table

Note to self: this (busyness) too shall pass and there will be plenty of bright days.

evening spring sky - I really, really like you

A little break to enjoy the scenery on his way up (and down and up and down and up...) the stairs.


Saturday 8 pm: walking home from a productive afternoon in the university reading room - also known as stress management

And then at 9 pm there was wine whilst waiting for the husband to finish dinner. #hesakeeperforsure

Sunday morning I got to sleep in and I got coffee in bed. He is definitely a keeper.

Foggy walk... the am...

...ready for more weekend work.

reading room lunch/snacks/coffee break is serious business

life, week 12

He insisted on carrying his backpack by himself, just like his big sister does. 

Coming home to this after a busy workday was just perfect.

Thursday dinner: simple, sad yet scrumptious - store bought Thai fish cakes and cucumber // elsk på de nye thaifiskekakene fra Lofoten!

cousins *heart eyes emoji*

Saturday night view - with gin tonic in hand (cheers!): husband making no less than five pizzas whilst listening to Pod Save America. Our future selves will be so happy about a freezer filled with homemade deliciousness.

Sunday agenda: nephew's baptism, hanging out with family and all that jazz

parents' living room still life

meatballs with a side of toothpaste

my crew *all the heart eyes emojis* (especially for Sverre's bowtie debut)

up and down the steps - current favorite pastime 

so curious about the crocus yet no crocuses were harmed

plum tree status March 26

We are all loving spring's arrival and post dinner play time in the garden.
