Weekend - November
But, much has been done and decided.
Our friend Nils, he was 70 on Saturday. We bought a $100 flower bouquet to him and called him on his day. The party will be next Saturday - the day we fly away down to Buenos Aires. (--- and for the first time since -94, I'm not going with my trusted customers (90 % with spouses) as their leader on our yearly X-Mas seminar. They will this year be in Nice (France). Just some minutes away from my friend Hakon.
But - Silver Wedding - I say no more.
Then we agreed upon where to be on Christmas Eve - the most important Family gathering in Norway. We will be in Niklas' new home. My mother (88) as well.
Then we also concluded where to be on New Years Eve. In our Winterhome. Party- party
And Saturday afternoon - buying and posting the regular Silver Cutlery to Anna's brothers. A long tradition - I think we now can serve at least 2 dozens of people - with silver cutlery. That's an important Norwegian tradition to serve familiy and friends with Silver and porcelain. In fact - it's a symbol of how we do weight you as friend - unless spoken out before - friendship is the most important - then we are very, very informal - as long as the food is prepared with a hearth for the visitors.
Yeah - Viking Traditions. We are not that bad?
Besides these need to do - we have been very passive. Some talking. Sleeeeeepiing. The days here are now very short. The Sun is "up" this Sunday 11h 59 minutes shorter than at mid-summer. Can you imagine. 12 houres. That's why we go to the Southern Hemisphere in less than a week.
Our Cats, well they relaxe. They are born here. They will stay with cousin (cat) Stompa for nearly 3 weeks. We will bring enought food. Solvi do not have a Car. So, we will bring for a least 3 weeks of food for, then 3, Cats.
But - during Summer -the Nordics is the worlds most wonder. It's up to you. Can it be simpler?
Tell me when you want to visit - we will allways find accommodations
PS. This is my first post, maybe the only one, without photos. What do you think?
