Say hi to Petronila!


Now it's July and my doll needs a new dress for this month. 

See how I made the dress














Say hi to Petronila!


Ending this post with these jokes to make you smile:)

The Eternal Question - Why?

Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?

Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavour, while dishwashing liquid is made with real lemons?

Why don't we ever see this headline:

"Psychic Wins Lottery"?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a "Broker"?

Why isn't there mouse flavoured cat food?

Who tastes dog food when it has a "new & improved" flavour?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

Støvelfossen!


A dream come true for me. I had been longing to visit this place and my husband brought me there. He made me a very happy woman.

 This place is known to be one of Norway's best place to catch  salmon with the fishing hook.  

So here is the happy lady who got her dream fulfilled. 





The river where the people can  try to catch the poor salmons:)



the falls

The stairs for the salmons to jump upwards to hatch their eggs




cottage


watch post maybe?


more pictures




It was overcast when we were there, so the pictures are not so clear.



Still, it is beautilful. Don't you agree?

The pearls of Norway!

Hi friends! Actually, I am not talking about the real pearls that comes from the sea, but for me these are pearls because they are very precious. Looking at them makes my soul uplifted. Be one with our Creator. We have a lot of these pearls in Norway.
These pictures were taken by me during the date I had with my hubby. Nice memories to cherish, especially now that he in on board the ship again. Sigh...

Date with my husband!

How are you all doing my friends? 
Yes, the weekend went fast. Now you see it, now you don't. Back to work again and soon it will be weekend one more time.  Anyway, last weekend my hubby invited me to dinner to a place Hasselvika. A more than hour drive from hour place. Since he was the driver, I had chance to take pictures all the way. 

So hope you enjoy the ride too and the pictures!

Dog walk














This is an Ice skating stadium

water everywhere...but cold...cold water



the view is priceless

 colorful grass



flowers along the road


more water: sea water and lakes

















But when I saw this waterfall along the road,  I asked my husband to stop the car. Just wanted to witness the beauty of nature a little longer...





fanstastic, isn't it?



Well, after a dozen more shots, we arrived to our destination, longing to eat,  but to our dismay, the restaurant was close. They changed their opening days. 




Anyway,  a selfie picture from this beautiful place.



Then we didn't have any choice but to find a new place to eat. After a 15 minutes drive, we found Venecia Pizza and grill who serves Thai food. We were so hungry, so we were so happy to find a place to eat.

There were some people who where there before us, so I just took a picture of this corner.


Typical Thai figures

Finally, our dinner: Thai Thai Mix. Tasted really good!


Well, I have a dozen more pictures to share, but bye for now.  Hope you enjoy the ride with us,

JOY
