It's Spring and even Easter Time in Norway

We wish all of our readers from the Norhtern Hempisphere a wonderful Spring.
And all the others as well a Great Easter.
Easter is something special here in Norway:

Introduction:

After a long Winter, people want to go up in the Snowy Mountains. Crazy?
Well, not as crazy  as it may sounds:
White Snow and Sunshine bronze our bodies. We need the Light and Sunshine.
We go skiing in healthy Mountain Air. And have wonderful evenings around the
Fireplace. Tells scary histories in the dark. And do old fashioned plays - like Ludo.
Have good cooking: Lamb is the tradition on Easter Evening.
Reading Crimes ( yeah it's the top season for buying Crime-Books in Norway).
And for Oranges and Chocklades and Marzipan Eggs.
Crazy Vikings.

What will Anna and Papa do?
Go skiing in the Mountains? Nope. They have something more important to do:
Visit Metin Leander, Ingelin, Kaya and his Parents.



Here you see Kaya with his parents one year ago.

And here are some Easter Yummies, from last year in Düsseldorf (Germany).

Wish you all a very great Springtime or Autumn.

PS. We will be away for a week or so. Our Cats will be taken care of every day.

I would rather kill myself then going in the mountains for snow and ice, lol ! Düsseldorf is much nicer especially on Easter, Mr. G. worked there for two years and I often joined him for the weekends. I like Düsseldorf very much.

Have a wonderful time with your family, Tor.

Those Easter yummies are so pretty, it's a shame to eat them.
