A good wife - spending a night at a hotel

May 16th, 2015

Last weekend together with colleagues from work I did participate in Holmenkollstafetten. Good day, did run 24 seconds faster than last year (7:57), I got the night off as well from home so I could attend to the banquet and sleep a whole night - staying at Scandic Hotel at Helsfyr...luxury!

Not windfall, but tree felled by the wind

May 16th, 2015

Learned that windfall means getting an unexpected large amount of money. So, the tree is not a windfall as we would say in Norwegian "vindfall", but a tree felled by the wind. Notice the red marking, I did mark the trail two weeks ago, and now the tree is blocking the trail instead. Need to bring my chain saw one day.

Trying to stay connected

May 1st, 2015

Trying to stay connected with my laptop, did actually not manage. The distance from the router was to long, so have to stay inside for a while before the outdoor antenna arrives.

Spinning to Samsaya

April 25th, 2015

Yesterday I was spinning while listening to Samsaya and her new album Bombay Calling. Did enjoy it while working out, has a couple of potential hits as well. Simen did previously ask me to provide more details about each album I listen to, to much work, instead providing a link to a review of the album

And here showing how easy it is to loose focus while working out. Just by reaching out my hand I am able to grab a beer, or booze for that matter...trying to stay strong.

One old birch down

April 25th, 2015

Last Sunday I had to take down the old birch standing next to "Grete-huset". Plenty of branches was dead and we feared that it could tip over any all time. By the help of my neighbor securing it by the help of the tractor and winch it did fall down as expected. Due to the wind helping me I did not actually need the wire rope, but better safe than sorry when it comes to doing stuff like this.

Did also cut down a tree for my neighbor close to their stable, this one we did pull down with the wire rope.
