forgotten post from earlier this summer. or should i say; forgotten post from the summer. now it's been raining for a month and fall is already here. we're planning to do something about that, though.
digging for earthnuts. on our first 'date' (we don't really 'date' in norway), my husband and i went for a mountain hike and he showed me how to find earthnuts in this very field.
we took our kids back to the lake we used to live nearby when our son was born. i don't think i've ever walked around this lake without at least one of our two dogs accompanying, and our cat following behind us. it was a bit sentimental to be there, since they're all dead from old age now. we plan to do something about that, too.
hm, raise the dead, turn the season?
to be continued....

I have never heard of earth nuts. Do you eat them? How? Interesting stuff. The rain is POURING up here too, non-stop. Lets hope september brings some sun!

victoria: jordnøtter er en liten, hvit knoll festet til roten på en ganske høy plante som ligner hundekjeks. veldig spiselig, og godt! minner litt om både vannkastanje, nøtter og potet :)

Please do your best to keep summer alive there and if you can here as well. The time has flown by and we've been tackled an unexpected house project that has eaten up August, so sad.

I didn't date my husband either, though we spent lots of time together.

I can't get over how magical your area looks. It's just like a fairy take.

And hunting for ground nuts...sounds like a good date to me!

Our first "date" was a hike.

whether I could get a job in norway? as any work, I will do.
do not care if I work outside my field. as waiters, shopkeepers, factory workers, and others. I would do, which is important to get income for daily needs there.
snow, forests, rivers, and mountains all was as it is in my dreams. I really want to live and work there
so far I can only see your country from google earth. and imagine I live there
