Love

You catch my eye

Like the candle flame

Fluttering before it dies

Beautiful and frail.

 

I reach out for you

Your skin feels like sun beams

I burn my finger tips in longing.

 

 

In your smile

I see the truths lined up

Like fir trees

Waiting to be picked up

To a joyful Christmas home.

December

Hi, peeps! What’s up? I’m dead tired after working alone yesterday, whisper interpreting for many hours on end is the worst and my throat is still sore. So I called it a day off, took Sammy to the woods and now I’m planning to dose off on the couch for an hour or so.😉Skjermbilde 2016-12-01 12.13.19.png Continue reading

Turbonegro Concert and Other Adventures

How are you? I’ve had an eventful weekend that included a punk-rock concert, a dinner with friends, brunch at the nearest café, a walk in the neighbourhood, a hangout with my neighbour who had forgotten her keys and today I’m hoping for  a Christmas market in town and coffee with a friend.

Cauliflower pie

Hey y’all!😉 How ya’ doing? I’m pretty good. Still itching and still trying to hold my head above the water, but I’m getting good at it, so I might as well enjoy the swim. Haha! (sigh)

Yesterday I had a very short day and did very little with the rest of it, as it often happens with me and so I felt the need to make a yummy dinner and a cake on top of that, to justify my mere existence. haha!

And since I’d made a cauliflower soup a couple of days ago, I still had lots of bacon, cauliflower and cheese and some pie crust in the freezer, so I was good to go. _MG_9986.jpg Continue reading

Changes around the Apartment

Those of you who know me, or have followed my blog for a while, have gathered that I’m a lazy part-time diva, not handy at all and with an insatiable appetite for luxurious interiors. And now I’m in a terrible mess, with getting divorced and all and when it doesn’t kill me, it tears me apart.

That being said, I work for 5 and refuse to succumb to the dreary realities of life and in the end I’ll be all right. One lovely day, as they say in Norwegian.😉

In the meantime, if I am to sell the apartment, it’ll need some changes. I’m going to straighten it up a bit, if you know what I mean. I need an electrician and all sorts of other stuff, but I won’t bore you with any of it, it’s the interior I enjoy buying.Skjermbilde 2016-11-21 12.35.51.png Continue reading

Espresso cookies, please!

As promised, here’s the espresso cookie recipe. I didn’t manage the deed yesterday, too tired for that (I actually fell asleep on the couch at 10:30 pm!), but today I got around to do it. After lazying around for the better part of the day, eating cold pizza for breakfast and pasta with a bit of this and that for lunch, I felt it was time to do some baking and then, in the middle of it, I realised I lacked an egg. So I knocked on the neighbours’ door and they didn’t have, either, they’d just eaten them for breakfast, but they invited me and Sammy to stay a bit and have a cup of tea. Needless to say we couldn’t have been more happy! _MG_9912.jpg Continue reading

November mood

I survived a couple of intense weeks, including commuting for 3 h every day four days this week, but that left me completely without energy. And so my plan for today is to walk Sammy, Netflix, nap, Hbo, nap again, drink mulled wine and scratch my crotch. (not literally, of course) And then bake some pizza and espresso cookies. (recipe tomorrow)Skjermbilde 2016-11-19 17.21.57.png Continue reading
