Back at the cabin…

Hello,

Road trip is over, it been over for several days now – we came home 2 minutes to midnight Sunday evening and I guess I used most of the week to settle down again here at this miserable cabin with its bad water situation and all.

Been fighting all week with my husband, not all day though, but the feel been bad and some days worse then others – but I managed to get some stuff done.

I was given a digital scale by mom and dad as a late birthday present, and that has seen quite lot of use this week as I been making my self little treats to chew on. πŸ™‚
Small cakes is always nice to snack on. LOL

Other then that, I’ve not fully settled in yet, mom and dad will fly back home on Sunday so I guess next week or so the full feeling of being up here again with only Tore will hit home and make me within a few days find back to the regular routine of trying to make my life as good as possible and get back to some of my projects.

Till next time, if you read this, I hope your safe and life treats you good.

Best wishes

Linda

On the road again…

It’s 0453 in the morning, I feel tired, sick and sitting here wondering what the hell am I doing.

But, I know what I’m doing, I’m preparing for a drive back to Eidsvoll from Ganddal where I’m located right now.
And, I do this so early as we have plans for a crazy tour today, going northeast up through some of the fjord country and up on the high mountains.
Just to get a different trip out of it, a new route so to speak… πŸ™‚

And, we bring with us my parents, and they have never been to some of these areas before – so I feel extra interested into giving them this opportunity as I fear it might not be to many years before they loose that chance for ever.

So, here I am, typing away at my old little Blog, hardly used, then used some, then not used, and so on…
I was to close down the computer, then eat, then finish packing, and hopefully be on our way till 0600 this morning.

Had me a shower when I got up, that was lovely – no can do such luxury over at the cabin in Eidsvoll…
Back to a miserable life, but also back to a cat I know misses us, and back to a place that holds a little better place for spending time with the computer and get some stuff done of useful character to my Cripple Creek interest.

So, until I either post again, or never do (it might be my day to move on today you know… πŸ˜‰ LOL) take care who ever feels for reading this blabbering of mine.

Best wishes

A good day, mostly

Hello world,

Today been mostly a good day, even if I spent quite lot of money today.
Which also though is one reason why this been mostly a good day.

Many years ago I used to go regularly to a beauty parlor for skin care, facials and just plain old having a good relaxing time.

Well, today I was back on the old place I used to be at when I lived in Sandnes, and it was nice to do something for my self again!

While I was laying there being taken care off, I was thinking if this should be a start of a new (actually old, but let us stay with the term new.. LOL) way again in my life, change direction so to speak.
Maybe this do mark that, or maybe not.

I doubt it really will mark a new way, but I also do plan on trying to let it do just that, time will tell either way.

Either way, I just wanted to share some of the good feel.

Best wishes, always

Linda

A visit…

04 Jul 2009 1 comment

Hello world of one, or two… πŸ˜‰

It’s become Saturday, 4th of July – and I really should have written to my US friends and wished them happy Independence Day.
But, it is long in the afternoon, and I don’t have that many friends, and, I never write them in such an occasions, so I think I leave that up to another time and year.
But, should anybody read this feel they would like one, here it is:

I wish you all a Happy and Great Independence Day 2009

I wrote a few days ago that I had my younger sister for a visit, and it was a great one too! I enjoyed her company and talks, and it do feel like we got to know each other a little again – which I’m very grateful for!
I learned a few things, I think she did too, and maybe I did grow a little as a human being too, thank you for the visit sister!

We left Eidsvoll on Thursday the 2nd of July 2009, not as early as hoped for (0600) but 0700 hour is not that bad either.
It was to become a mostly sunny day, to sunny for my taste and body – but it was some rain and clouds too that for me was a welcomed break.
I had to most of the driving as my husband Tore is getting worse – but he manage to do about 1 hour of the around 15 hours we spent on the road this day.
But, he was sad, driving brings no joy he said in a moment of weakness – and I just feel how that hurts inside of me too to see him this sad.
So, I know, I do love him, even if I also hate him and really fight with him nearly daily!

Either way, we got our self over the mountains and into Rogaland, and into the region called Jæren and a small town called Varhaug where we left my sister at the place she wanted to stay.
Then we left for my parents place, in the city of Sandnes, and the place called Ganddal.
We was finally there about 2215 hours…
I was very tired, and real warm and bad feel on my skin and body.

A shower and some food and relax + of course a couple of more hours later, things felt a little better. It was still warm, inside my old room – now our guestroom… – it was probably near 30 degree Celsius as the afternoon and evening sun is shining right into my room through the window.
But, I was tired enough to fall to sleep real fast, butt naked on the bed… πŸ™‚
To hot to cover up with any bedlinen or anything…

Yesterday I spent inside much of the day, away from the sun as much as possible, but I was also sitting out in the shade quite a deal talking with my parents and Tore later on the day.
Inside my room, it become so hot that the computer refused to corporate complained about the CPU being way over range – it was 74 C. when I accidentally turned it off by bumping against a button that controls the electricity to a distributor on the floor and killed the computer, monitor and so on…
On reboot, I was not allowed to restart the computer due to the hot temperature… 😦
Later, after a cool down, it refused totally, complaining about not being able to load the Operating System…
That stressed me out, I even removed the cover on the computer, saw a lot of dust inside, tried to vacuum most of that out, and let it cool more outside – but still it refused to boot… 😦

But, then, finally, I had a moment of clearness, maybe the USB memory stick was the problem as it was still hooked up, so I unplugged that – and lo and behold, that solved it all… Stupid me… LOL

The computer still runs hot, I had to turn it off this night to let it rest a little, but I’m sitting here now typing away, at 1437 Saturday afternoon and it runs on the CPU now 55 C. so it is hot in here.
And, hotter it will get, the sun is starting to poke in the window…

Of other things today, we been out driving a short trip this late morning, brought my parents along as they wanted to get some food bough in for the weekend.
We got some stuff to, me and Tore. πŸ™‚

I should have been and visited my grandmother, but I stay away from the sun and will take it tomorrow I think.
Normally I would done it earlier today, but my mom is angry at her mom, and refuses to go visit her, and that made it hard for me to swing by as mom and dad was in the car with me…

I’m full of excuses too, I know that, and I try to fight it off, but I’m a weak person when it comes down to it…

I still struggles with life in general, spend some money of gambling I do, but normally don’t win what I put in or more.
Today I did on what we called Flax-lodd – which is a form for a paper ticket where you can scratch a special surface and find 3 alike numbers and you win that number (times 1).
I normally don’t get a high winning there, but today I got the total of 575 Norwegian kroner where I did put in 150 Norwegian kroner. Yeah!! πŸ™‚
Not much, but makes me feel a little lucky for ones! LOL

I doubt I will keep my Blog up much, but who knows.

Either way, thank you for reading this, and I hope you have a great day wherever you are!

My best wishes

Linda
