5 May 2017 – TGIF
Sun&Mon: bye-bye Apr and welcome Spring. Happy May Day, a public holiday here in Norway – an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival too. Also International Workers’ Day, known as Labour Day in some countries. Pix downloaded. Good to catch up with Ingrid&HansK.
The weather here can really turn from winter to spring overnight! It was snowing the day before I arrived – now just happily sitting and relaxing in the garden watching Olai play by the jacket-eating tree 🙂 This cute wooden concept here attracts bugs and insects.
Tue&Wed: yesterday Spring was officially in the air here in OSL/Norway.
Today it feels more like Summer that even the duck found its way to the flower-shop! Quite delightful listening and watching the birds – with weathers and ambiance like this, one can only feel blessed being alive to enjoy, experience and marvel Mother Nature at her best.
Thu: an afternoon@Ullevål sykehus/hospital for my check-up and the good old ticker is back to normal – enjoy this as long as it last! BP normal and looks like I will live for this round 🙂 🙂 🙂 Glad that I did not push myself to the max when in Nepal, as the heart might have gone Afib or stop! and was not willing to challenge or take that risk. Accepting the reality of life when the mind says Yes, but the Heart says otherwise is the time to listen to the Heart!
Fri: looking forward to seeing the result of Bjørn’s hard work in the garden. He has been working very hard building this shed, replanting strawberries on the roof-top and digging a trenches on the 2sides of the shed for the blueberries. He believes that anything worth planting should be edible…
Shopping for Norwegian chocolate at different stores where the best deals are available. @Søstrene Grene for 17May stuff to the US family.
Food tasting and shopping@my fav grocery shop Jacob’s, especially the seafood.
It has so far been a peaceful and restful week watching Olai baking, colouring, playing, etc. This perfect weather brings back fond memories of someone I greatly admire and respect, L&M paternal grandfather John, who used to say ‘Amy you know that we worked very hard to get this glorious weather to welcome you’– he died Aug 2008 age 85 and is still dearly missed.
