H is for Home...


Certain letters has made the alphabethblogging quite hard, others easy. When it comes to the letter H, I have had a lot of options in mind. In the end I have landed on this little word "home". It concerns everybody in one way or another.

I write this as I  sit in the livingroom in the house where I grew up, with three children sleeping in the bedrooms on the first floor. This was once my home, and although I don't live in this house anymore, it will alway represent "home". I behave as if I am at home when I am here I've realised, and so does the children, even if it has never been their "home". Home is a place to chill, feel secure, relax, decide how you want things to be in every sense. Whereever I have been over the years, I have always had this home to return to and not least the location of it. My roots are here, even if I have other homes as well.

It is a blessing to have such a place. Home.

G is for Grey.....

It is November.
The greyest of all the months.
The days are getting shorter in November, daylight is sparse. It only gets darker in November. Nature will during this month loose its colours and make the landscape appear barren

Still, there is something about November that I like. The wind, the chill, the frost, even the rain. The low sun that is so different from what it was a few months ago and from what it will be again in a few months from now. Then you have indoor life, woodstoves, knitting.
It is all these colours in all the greyness.

14. november- friday...

It is the 14th of November.
It is Friday.
Here is my day...
It is the middle of November and it is pitch dark as I drive to work in the morning.
I teach Norwegian to a class of foreign children on Fridays, but this morning they where a teacher short in the fourth grade so I had to step in for a while. 
Back in my own classroom the students where missing, so I went to the office instead and did some perparation.
Back home I got to enjoy the sunset.

In the evening we went to a birthday party, and I didn't take any more photos untill I got home late in the evening.

A house by the sea...

I felt like sharing this song.
It has been on my playlist lately and it speaks to me. I don't really know the artist very well and I'm not a particular fan. It is just this song.

I also belong in a house by the sea :)

F is for Fashion.......

I have seen around blogworld people posting regularly about what they wear. Personally I have never had the guts to do it, basically because I find that what I wear is too boring. I also live in a country with a lot of weather, so often the fashion side is left out of it and the most important thing is to protect yourself from the elements. But now that I have gotten to F in the alpahabet blogging, I tought of it as an opportunity to do a post about - call it fashion. At least about what I wear.

I bought this red dress about three years ago for a christmas party at work. Since then I have worn it on one New years eve, to  a few family gatherings and now I feel that it is no longer good for party/formal wear somehow. So it was just hanging in the wardrobe for a while and I was considering what to do with.  Now I dress it down with a pair of leggings, scarf and a cardigan and informal shoes and I am ready for any monday. I quit like to get wear out of things, and not to buy things for one occasion and never be able to wear it again.
