Watching TV

Day and night moon

Lavangen, Norway (November 2008)

It is time

for a journal page update.
My laptop collapsed and has to be sent for repairs (it might take months before I get it back)

So I bought myself a goodie (a small laptop-notebook-thingy (am LOVING IT!!!)

These are the Journal Pages I did in my grandparents house on dark afternoons/evenings
(it gets so dark up there in the Northern Norway)

this one was for Project Suzi (above)

and this one with pictures of me found in the manymany albums there... (I copied them and glued them into my book)

My granddad and the kittycat...

My 88 year old granddad picking the mail.
Can you see the cat is just behind him
Is he walking the cat; or is the cat walking him?
I can see kitty is looking after him; even waiting for him although he walks much slower than he did in his younger days.

almost there
I lovelovelove this man!!!
He is my hero!!

I wish

I had a good camera, so that I could show you the northern lights; how it looks right now...

I am spending a week in the north of Norway, visting my grandparents. It is really relaxing. Not much to do here, except eating, sleeping, reading, talking. I enjoy listening to their stories from years back. My grandparents are so wise!! I have so much to learn from them..

It gets dark here really early; I should get up earlier in the morning to get as much daylight as possible (I get a bit tired in this darkness).
But I enjoy reading in bed before I sleep, sometimes it gets a bit late. I brought many-many good books for my holiday :P

My granparents usually take naps in the evening, in front of the tv (with the volume real loud)... I spend this time with My Book (my "Art Journal"). It is getting thick and heavy now. I almost left it at home when I traveled; but my friend told me to bring it. I`m glad my friend knows me so well.... The chance is I could go crazy without it.

I`ll be back in Trondheim on November 17. I can`t post pictures untill then.
Untill then I`ll relax and take the day as it comes. Making no plans for tomorrow. It feels so good!!

Have a nice weekend
