Life at the Cabin

Even if there is electricity at the cabin
it's always nice to light candles.
this is our new addition
And old kerosene lamp!
It lights the room up very cosily
and gives warmth too
At night: lovely cold white wine

And some prawns, delicious!
This is how I make toast at the cabin, in the oven
under the grill.
Highly more effective than the toaster we used to have!

And in this little kettle
I boil our eggs for breakfast!

New Gadget!

For a long time, I felt like this: trapped with my film memories in a glass wall.

My camera use Firewire to transfer films to my PC

But in my new laptop there is no where to plug the Firewire!
How frustrating!
But then after more than a year of searching
I found another way!
This is my new Friend!
And now I'm about to burn all my digital tapes on DVD's.
The next thing is to try to transfer the VHS films the same way.
And I am such a happy nerd!

Friendship and open spaces

I love open spaces
the sound of the waves
the wind against my face!
Good talks with my soulmate!
See the profile in the sky?
who was that watching over us?
Two good friends!
The beach and the horizon
And the lighthouse in Hirtshals
helping the ships to find their way
The view from our little flat
at sunset

Soul mates

Sometimes in a lifetime
you meet someone that will mean something special to you
Your soul recognizes a kindered soul
You know this is someone special.
This happened to me many years ago when I was 16
I met my best friend and soul mate
We had so much fun!

Then some years later
my soul mate found a Danish lad and moved with him to Denmark
I found my English lad and brought him home with me to Norway
we had finished school, got jobs, got married, had kids
Our days were busy
and the physical distance between us seemed impossible to overcome
still our souls were connected
every now and then we sent letters filled with longing
Then there was email
and the communication became more frequent
once more we became a part of eachothers everyday life
Even though we rarely met in person
I remember picturing the two of us in the future
when our kids got older and more independent
and we slightly middle aged
then we might be able to meet
more regularely.
And now we're there
Tomorrow I'll meet my soul mate in Denmark
No husbands, no kids, off work
just two 41 year old 16 year olds!

Birthday in the house

Someone celebrated his birthday yesterday:
Yorkshire lad, Happy birthday!
He wanted his food
hot baby hot
Indian chicken a la home made
And sweet baby sweet
Cheese cake
