Slow Life

How are you? I’ve been taking it slowly lately, work’s been scarce and I’ve not been feeling great, either, but the weather’s been splendid and I’ve had my partner in crime, Sam, to keep me company. So we went to the woods, bathed in a pond and a river (him, not me), picked some lilies of the valley and felt free and truly blessed to have each other. I’ve always preferred pets to people and as a 10 year old, I used to climb over the garage, where I had a “secret laboratory”, and  “cultivate” moss and mushrooms with my huge, lazy, orange, tiger cat.

Summer of Content

Today was a really crappy day. It started with the dentist pulling one of my front teeth, so that the others can fit my mouth. Really gross and painful stuff. And besides I look like someone punched me in the face. On top of that, I have a terrible cold and when I’m not sneezing, I’m blowing my nose. And as if that wasn’t enough, I’ve lots of printing and stapling to do since taxes are around the corner and I haven’t given it a thought until now. Skjermbilde 2017-05-22 19.35.30.png

Sunny Day in Bergen

I’m not done with Bergen and Bergen is not done with me. In fact, I’ll be there for a whole week at the end of June with my good friend Adriana and I can’t wait! 😉 Another human trafficking case, but after hours, this baby is going to do some world class eating and shopping. 😉 haha!

Tacos Save the Day

No, the apartment was not sold on the first round of home inspections and yesterday I was both furious and sad, mostly because nobody could realise what a great home this has been for me and see herself living here. But I snapped out of it pretty fast, relieved that V contacted the engineer and the real estate agent to correct a bunch of information regarding the bathroom and now we’re having a new “open house” again on Sunday, meaning I’ll be living on display until then.

Today was the 17 of May, Norway’s national day and we didn’t even get out of the house. And I loved every second of it! We did have both Prosecco, Cremant and Champagne, which implied a couple of naps on the couch watching crime. Again, how much better can it get? Both of us were tired, the weather was crappy and we had nowhere to be and so staying at home with good food and some slightly burned meringues (I made a batch yesterday, while angry about the lack of a bidding round) felt like the perfect thing to do.
