Fall report 2011 – Oslo Area, Norway

This year the Weather has been unusual here in the Oslo Area. It has been mild, not warm, and very rainy. In fact it has never been measured more Rain in Oslo since 1900, the first year rainfall was measured.  So what is it like? What have we done, except for working. Yes we still are, in the ages of 66 and 63. And love our work.

Lot’s of Water in those Clouds – I can tell;-)

See the Cats, they were very happy to be back in the Winter Home as Table Cats – Felicia in front and Rosa behind.

Felicia and Rosa look so very happy to be back in the winter house!

Your lamb stew looks delicious- lamb is one of my very favorite foods. In the summer I often make my spin on the hamburger but I make lamb-burgers. Much more delicious!

Anna looks lovely, as usual. Yoga is so good for the mind and body.

Big hugs to you both! XOXO

Wonderful to hear from you! I'm making a chicken soup for our dinner tonight. I love home made soups and stews. Especially at this time of year.
Hello to Anna!

We had a poor summer but now, suddenly, this week we have sun and warmth. It is amazing. The seasons are all mixed up.

I must try yoga again. If it makes me like Anna. :)

You are such a hoot, Tor! The weather has been unusual for us in Holland, too, but I'm such a fall person, I haven't minded at all. I love that I can picture you back home...with the cats on the table. :)

Happy birthday to 3x21 Anna. :)
