Merry Christmas - God Jul :)

Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays - God Jul :)

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas weekend.  I was able to visit with my Aunt Tone (who is actually my sis's godmother but who has known my my whole life lol) and Cousin Toril and there 3 kitties (Positana, Chanse, Svarten) this Christmas.  Which was great since I'm away from my family in Houston TX :)

Snowy tur of Kongsberg :)

Hi everyone :)

On Sunday I decided to get out and take some pics in the snow.  I left home around 1:30pm and it was about -10C / 14F and had been snowing for almost 48 hrs :) All decked out with proper winterboots, wintercoat, hat, gloves, long underwear, well you get the idea lol :)

Quick Note

Hey everyone,

I know I have been MIA lol. I just found out that in the process of changing all my emails over to my new email addy, all the pics on this blog got lost. Sigh. I'll have to go back and upload the one I remember where they go.

I promise to post soon :)

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone 1 day late :)

Nice little walk in Sigdal :)

Hi everyone :)

I'm back in Sigdal with Tone (my sis's godmother) and Toril (her daughter) for the weekend and decided to take some pics of a walk we did around here.  Chanse, 1 of the cats joined us for part of the walk.  And the neighbor's dog, Zorro decided that going for a walk would be a lot of fun too.  I did get a couple of videos of him too :)  Enjoy :)

Some beautiful flowers on the side of the house

A Walking (Pics) Tour of Kongsberg :)

Hi everyone,

I've now been in Kongsberg almost 2 weeks :)  I decided to give you a tour of Kongsberg :)  Watch out there are a lot pics (153 if you want to be exact, but who's counting right lol, unless I didn't load them all, lol)

Flip-flops, hmmm is this correct footwear for this tour...

Big debate whether to wear tennis shoes or flip-flops.  Flip-flops won due to weather being fabulous, balmy 70 F / 21C, with lots of sunshine :)

Patches & Pirata 06/03/96 - 08/05/10

Patches left & Pirata right

It is with a heavy heart that I'm writing this blog today.  My sister had the hard job of letting my 2 sweet girls go to the rainbow bridge earlier today.  Both my girls have been going downhill the last couple of weeks.  They were eating less and less and drinking more.  And what little they did eat was being thrown up.  They were also very depressed after I had to leave 3 months ago.  My poor little girls were just getting so tired.  I wished with my whole heart that I would have been able to be there with my girls.

Hello from Norway :)

Flower box on balcony in Oslo

Hi everyone :)
Long time no chat.  I know I've been MIA for a while.  I've been back to Norway for about 2 months now.  Things are different from the USA for sure, but not in a bad way.  Things tend to take longer to get done here.

I'm back well at least sorta :)

Dallas (sis's kitty looking out the window)

Hi everyone!!

I know I've been very MIA lately.  Seem so much has happened.  I still haven't found another job.  I've answered a lot of applications, had quite a few interviews, but everything falls apart when the interviewer finds out I need to be sponsored for a work permit.

Nanuchy 10/24/95 to 01/07/10


(Pic taken during morning news at Fox 26 12/10/09)

Yesterday was an end of an era! Nanuchy, Her Royal Grouchiness, took her final trip to the vets. It was def time. In the last 6 weeks she went downhill in a big way. Her kidneys were shutting down. She was drinking so much water and was on the highest dosage of meds and still had to go out every 2-3 hrs around the clock or she would have an accident (mostly the last 2 weeks).
