Between Christmas & New Year

If there is one thing we do when we have the time to relax, we escape to Skjeberg and stay at our little cabin. This year, we used a lot of our weekends there.

Charles
and Odd visited us on the 28th of December. I always enjoy their company. They make me feel young.

To Charles and Odd, thank you for a wonderful time!

This is how it is like by the fjords between Christmas and New Year.

I sometimes think that I enjoy coming to this place in the winter than in the summer. It is very peaceful and beautiful (almost magical).

Norwegian Movies and James Bond

I have seen only 3 movies in 2 months. If it wasn’t for my “extra job” as a support person (støttekontakt) for another individual, I would probably not have gone to the movie house at all. Not that I do not like going to the movies but I just do not think of making a time for it.

In the past, I rather watch a swedish or a danish film because I didn’t find norwegian films very good except for Elling and Heftig og Begeistret which were both released in 2001. I waited 5 years to watch another norwegian film and was very very surprised. Norwegian films have improved. Uro is an action/drama film while Fritt Vilt is a thriller/suspense film.

James Bond

To my dear friend Joey:
I promised to make a comment on the new James Bond movie. The stunts are just so crazy and it is action filled enough to hold my breath. It was funny and exciting. I enjoyed it very much.

Car Show

SOMETHING INTERESTING IS GOING ON….

THE REASON FOR THE GATHERING:

WHY ARE WE SO ATTRACTED TO DESTRUCTION? I WONDER….
This was one of the highlights at the car show (Autofilmessa) we went to which I mentioned on my last post.

There were quite a lot of cars, and these are some of them:
