Kveldslys..


A heavy snowfall this week made me swear more than ususal. It has been a struggle to walk to work and a struggle to find somewhere to park the car in my commuter village. A place where I would be able to get it loose again before spring.

In the midst of cursing the snow and digging a place for my car to stay over night, I discovered the beauty of it in the darkness. My bad mobile camera don't do it justice, though.

January silent sunday kind of post...

I find January to be such a hard month to get through. It is so dark, cold and dreary. It helps with a beautiful weekend morning.

Inaugural post - Stuff this week....

I've decided to sum up up the week rather than the month. Here is my first summing up and the stuff that put its mark on my week:

This sofa in my commuter home.
I've spent a few hours on it every weekday night for the past couple of weeks.



This book. I've spent the hours on said sofa reading this predictable (I think predictable; haven't finished it completely yet) lovenovel. It so emptied my head...



 Days of stable, cold and sunny winterweather. Makes the start to the year so much better.


January discounts as it got me the piece of furniture in the photo above and the products in the photo below.



 These slippers made by my aunt; as they have kept my feet warm at my commuter home throughout this winter.

Home...

My flat is still pretty new to me.
 
 
This week it is five months since I took over.
 

 
I never knew it would feel this good to own a place completly on my own.

Godt nyttår - happy new year - and almost Silent sunday....

A hickup with my computer has delayed my new year greeting here on the blog, but now I am back in action.

I hope the afternoonview from my office this week is a sign of how the year will be - calm, quiet and beautiful....

Happy 2018.....


An office with a view.......

Review of the year...

It has become a tradition for me to review the year through photos
and here comes the review of 2017 through my personal choice of highlights....



 At the start of the year I lived near the above park, had just quit a job that I liked and had a new job for a month in a borrowed office.

I have in fact had three offices this year.


The last one with absolutely the best view...


 For six and a half year I ran around this lake at least a couple of times a week. That came to an end this year.



There was a lot of packing going on. I chose to move, but had such mixed emotions about it and a lot of soulsearching went on.




I started to walk new paths, quite literally, but it is good to see some photots of the old ones.




A trip down to the city centre of Bergen. Still not that far away..



Spring came and with it the sunsets seen from the city flat....







I got a new job in this place at the same time as I packed down the city flat...


I shed a tear as I closed the door here for the last time and saw this sunset for the last time..



I had new rooms to fill. Larger, newer and for the first time in my life owned by me alone. It was daunting..


...but I have never looked back. I am so glad I did this.


 I became a student...


and a commuter living in digs in a rather remote place during the weekdays...



2017 gave me such a good autumn...


 Working with these people has been such a joy...


I am ready to party in the new year...

December moments...

The year has bought changes..
Now the last month of it has gone and we are ready to welcome a new year...
Here are the moments from December 2017....


With December came advent -  my favourite time of year..


I even got round to baking a couple of cakes for Christmas...


Blurred commuter life view...



We had "green" days. I have to admit I hoped they would last throughout the month. 
They didn't. The snow has it's own beauty, though.






Since moving I have had to find new roads to walk on. It takes me past the petroleumindustry in action.



Christmas tree on the ferry I have to take to my job. It look like I was the only one there, but there was a couple of other souls there.

The ferry trip produces beautiful views, though. Particularly on a December day with sunshine.


@work...



My commuter neighbours have decorated a tiny tree outside their front door. I found it so cute. As it has been dark when I have gone to work and dark when I have returned it was not easy to get a good picture of it, but this will do.


 Commuter life produces some beautiful views...
