I love long weekends and May is full of them! This Monday was Pentecost and we had nice weather, so we went on a walk with our dear Sammy. They say this May is the coldest in some years (I forget how many, Norway is all about weather records as it is!), so I put on way too many clothes, just to find out I didn´t actually need a sweater and a wool scarf, a cotton one would have done just fine. 😉
On our way to the woods, nature was in full bloom and Sammy- as happy as he could be. I hadn´t had enough coffee and it was a bit of a drag, but I cheered up eventually. With a leaping dog and a handsome husband what else is there to do than comply with the forces of nature?! 😉
The view is there to be checked. What are the guys spraying on the walls this time? We even spotted a squirrel, so tiny, I hadn´t seen one in years!
Green of jealousy on all those lucky fellows who have a balcony… Since nice weather is rare in Oslo (by South-Romanian standards), one should “live life to the max” on a sunny day! And what better way to do it than enjoying the view from your own balcony with bare toes and a Prosecco glass in your hand?! And a Sammy by your side?
People were having a beer and perhaps lunch at this venerable funkis restaurant renovated about ten years ago. It´s the crown jewel of our part of the city and they make a killer mussel soup! We usually go there in the summer, the views are stunning!
And this is the view! If you´re a regular, you´ve probably seen it way too many times on my blog, but I can´t help it, I´m fascinated by the changes of the season, the light, as well as my own mood.
Always time for a new friend. And this girl was pretty! Too fierce, maybe, ´cause every time she´d check Sam up, he´d lose a bunch of hairs.
We went to Karlsborg for a cup of coffee, but they were closed. Bummer. Others were enjoying home made sandwiches and cocoa, but what about urban people like us?
On our way home, Sam fell in love again, this time with a staffordshire bull terrier, whom he played with for a bit. First they dug a whole..
and then they lay down in it. Together! haha! Too cute!
I made myself a lovely spring bouquet out of chestnut flowers and lilac and now the whole house smells of it. Who needs newly washed floors when you can have fresh flowers? 😉
