The girls and I went to my sister's for two days.. like I mentioned in the previous post. Got back home around 11:30 last night, the girls both asleep i the car for the last part of the drive( which took place in heavy rainshowers)
The first day we went to Oslo to take a walk along a part of the Aker River.My oldest took this photo of the rest of us, my sister, niece and my youngest.
Wonderful weather, good temperature, lovely scenery and a couple of blisters on my toes (which were tended to by a footbath in the evening accompanied by lots of good white wine)
Here are some pictures from the walk.
An old factory building made into an apartment building
old English style houses buildt for some of the factory workers around the 1900.
One of the factories.
A little lucnh break outside one of the buildings that the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) use for their soap series "Hotel Cæsar" My sister in the middle and my niece in front (and my oldest in the back of course)
I played a lot with my new camera on this walk....
This was made to remember the hardworking factory women
more playing with my camera by a little waterfall
of course we crossed severa small bridges. On one of the- a hanging bridge - this was found on the post ("I can hold 100 men, but not if they march across to the same beat")
we saw a lot of nice houses- some also made for birds..
I will post some more from our walk around the botanical garden by the Munch museum, too- but not until tomorrow..
Today I have bee doinga little bit of cleaning; vaccuming, cleaning floors, dusting.. None of it a fun activity- but rewarding afterwards.
No knitting done at all. Sooooooo tired of cotton- I loooooong for wool!

Hubby and I have invited a couple over for dinner either Saturday or Sunday night. I'm not planning a BBQ since the weather might not be ideal for that- so I'm opting for indoor cooking if they can come.
This afternoon the oldest and I went for a fast walk/run with the dog. I had the colour of a ripe tomatoe for half an hour after!

So it was a good day for doing something we should've done before we moved here. But today we got around to it, and that was marvellous:
ORGANIZING THE STORAGE ROOM IN THE BASEMENT; PART ONE.
That is; sort out Barbie stuff and other little toys that are to be saved for coming generations or thrown out. Man there was a lot of it!Everything you see on the floor is garbage- and we are only halfway through at this point.
The girls enjoyed seeing it all again and remembering things around the different dolls and other items as we sorted and chose what to keep.
I forgot, however , to take a photo when we had finished, but then I thought i could do a before/after photo series from the whole room eventually... Some day.(Hopefully this summer!)
