Another Short report from Oslo, Norway – February-March 2011

March 2, 2011

The cold has lost it’s grip over Oslo. It means it’s just above freezing point downtown and some degrees under freezing point in the Hills, where just now the World Championships in Nordic Ski takes places.
Result: Fog from about 250-550 meters (750-1650 feet) about Sea Level.
just where the Competions takes places.

This Day Sweden, France and Canada won the Gold Medals. It was in fact the first  ever for Canada. Congrats.
I was downtown with my Camera to take Photos.
OSL March 2011 - Woman in White 
Women in White - a Group
This were the only two before my Camera Battery went flat. Grrrr.
I might have told you I do have a temporary, slow Internet connection? And we also need to change TV-cable vendor?
Monday Feb 28 Sunset 0
Monday, Feb 28, I went to pick up the new equipment needed for the new connections. I took some Photos on my way to pick up the new “boxes”. As you can see, it was in the Afternoon.
But, I was disturbed by a “chopper”.
Empty Playground - Snow you know 
So, I looked at the Playground. Who plays basket outdoor these Days?
Playground - No Kids 
Not even the Small Kids have not played here for a while.
I suspect they are out Skiing or up in the Hills following the World Championships;-)
Chopper 2 Why is the Chopper still following me? Google? Who knows?

The change will take place on Monday March 7. I hope I can cope with all the Cables supported and mix boxes etc the correct way. I’m afraid I need a Day off from work;-) 
Marta og Monsen 
By the way, we had a short visit to our friends, who now has Felicia’s kitten. Marta and Monsen. They are really great. And seemed to recognize the both of us. They live in a very good home.
Thinking about travel 
We are planning our Summer Vacation…. Where will we land and who will visit?

More to come….

Very creative those ladies. What a pity your batteries died.

The kittens seem to have a really great home, awesome.

Since we know a bit about your summer plans, I'll say that it will be awesome that too! Yay!

I hope that by now you are seeing a little bit of spring. I wanted to tell you that over a year ago I met Naomi of Old Lady of the Hills’ blog on your blog. I visited her blog and kept reading it. When I was in Los Angeles about 3 weeks ago she invited me to come and see her. We had a great visit. Without you though I would have never known her.

Wow - love the ones with the ladies in the snow! My boys are going to spend the summer holidays in South Africa - I'm very envious. English rose and I will be here in Norway because Farmor is coming to visit for the holidays. Can't wait to hear where you are going...
