Our main goal for the day was to drive up the west coast of Mani to see the Diros caves. The caves are unusual in that it’s half-filled with water, so you go through most of it by boat. The roof of the cave is very low at times, and we all had to bow our heads down quite far, which was quite loudly told us by our guide who steered the boat for us. It was a spectacular view inside though... you are viewing thousands of years of water doing its work through the lime stone cave system and it leaves you pretty awe struck with its natural beauty... it is like a different world or planet!

The underground river is moving through the limestone that makes up the cave system. It said in my guide book that  cave divers have attempted to explore the cave and it is believed that the river system goes as far north as Sparta. Human remnants from the Neolithic times have been discovered in the caves. Which is to be expected because it is one of the only sources of fresh water in the area.

Day 177/366: Vatheia https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/2/day-177/366-vatheia Day 177/366: VatheiaDay 177/366: Vatheiahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vatheia This spectacular fortress village sneaks upon you as you drive up this very narrow, windy road in the mountains. We reached it just as  the sun was setting... It completely took my breath away, so gorgeous! It is a mostly abandoned city today. A few of the towers have been renovated and are lived in but not many.  Some were renovated as part of a scheme to develop tourist accommodation by EOT the Greek tourist organisation but that never worked and is bankrupt, towers all closed up. It used to house different people in the past., I think at some point four dueling clans tried to claim it as theirs. you can read more about the history of the place here.

Meze is one of my favorite ways of enjoying it because you get to sample so many different dishes at once. It is like the Greek version of the Spanish Tapas. They use so many fresh ingredients, lots of seafood and cheeses (fried cheese called Saganaki being one of my favorites, together with the many variations you get served Feta: fresh as it is, baked, spiced up, grilled... yum) and what they call salads, which almost always at least includes tzatziki and taramosalata. There will also almost always also be keftethes (meatballs), Tiropites (little cheese pies ), dolmathakia me Kima (stuffed wine leaves) marithes (whole fried whitebait smelts), calamari and little baby squids served... everything cooked with olive oil.

Looking through my pictures, this is about the only one I shot this day! Lazy day at the beach mostly again, gearing up for our two day road trip the next few days.

It is a beautiful city full of Venetian architecture.

After a loooong day of travel that started at 4 am in the morning, the girls finally got to dip their feet into the Mediterranean sea. They were so happy! And looking forward to endless days of swimming. We were staying in Tolo, a small fishing village in Asini at the southern end of Peloponnese. It is a quiet, small, sleepy village where I have been a few times before, and my parents many times before... so a lot of the people running businesses there knows us. 
 
It is soooo hard picking out photos from this trip to put into my 366 project, as there are many, many photos that tells so much about what we were doing, where we were going and what we were seeing and experiencing there. 
 
This depicts so very well that first day of vacation to me, though...

Shot this just down from where I live, while waiting for my ride to work... I had a meeting quite early and having to get the girls ready for school as well as an almost one hour long bus commute would have made me late for it... so good thing my friend Bjørn Olav works at the same place, and that he was going a bit early as well this day, so I could hitch a ride with him - it only takes a bout 10-15 minutes to get to work by car. Sad but true! While I am glad there is a way to get to work by public transport, it does suck it takes such a long time.

I told him they might as well eat dinner here, and he was not hard to persuade! We had gyros with leftover lamb, home made tzasiki and yummy potatoes, and for dessert I made pavlova. It was a hit as always. I have nailed the making of the meringue, which can be tricky.

Day 168/366: Failed stress reliever https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-168/366-failed-stress-reliever Stress relief failure

I have been kinda stressed lately, so much to organize and fix at the same time - everything from juggling bill payments, to different things I have to attend and plan out for the girls at the end of the school year, and make sure they have the right things with them on school days that are unusual now at the end of the school year, to pack and prepare and plan for the trip to Greece (Tolo in Peloponnese) on June 20th, not only for myself but the girls of course, and then my parents who are also going calling many times a day about the situation in Greece with the election, the banks maybe being emptied of Euro, and all kinds of other things in that regard... and of course having a full time position to keep up with as well, where it has been extra hectic as of late since so many of my department in Leikanger went on strike for more than a week, and they got way behind and now we all have to try our best to catch up, and it gets to be too much. Today was just one of those days I felt the pressure way heavy. I hopped on the bike, because usually exercise helps relieve the stress. It didn't this day though. 
 
Felt a bit better the next day when I felt I got a bit headway on most of the things I tried to organize.
 
(ps, seeing Spongebob and Patrick in this pic made me smile :))

Day 166/366: Being present https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-166/366-being-present Day 166/366: Being present

Be a rainbow in someone else's cloud.
Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter
 
If you have your attention on what is see its fullness in every moment you will discover the dance of the divine in every leaf in every petal in every blade of grass in every rainbow in every rushing stream in every breath of every living being. ...beyond memory and judgement lies the ocean of universal consciousness.
Deepak Chopra
 
I have quite a few photographer friends who are heavily dependent on their cars to get around. Both due to distances they have to commute every day, but also due to layouts of where they live, and the lack of possibilities to walk a lot on foot, or a lack of public transportation that will require that they walk to and from their homes to the public transport stops. I've always told them we see the world differently almost. Sometimes i envy them the reach and easiness they get with driving to new places or things they want to see and photograph. But, sometimes I feel they miss out on so much that can be found on the journey itself. I experience so much more of the smaller details every day. I get to be much more present in my own life in a way.
 
Like this tiny rainbow I caught a glimpse of as I  was walking through the city park here in Bergen, Norway, from a bus stop to the culture school where I was about to  attend my oldest daughter's end of the year piano concert.

Day 165/366: Light https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-165/366-light Day 165/366: Light

A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light.
Leonardo da Vinci
 
Anyone who photograph just even a little bit, very soon get acquainted with the importance of light. It is... the essence of photography itself. The word photography is composed of two words that come from Greek: Photo means light, graphy (actually grafein) means to draw. To photograph means <i>drawing with light.</i>
 
A photograph is an image that is created with the technique that imprints light. The light acts like the brush a painter use, the imprint works as the paint.The imprint is what we see through the viewfinder of the camera. 
 
Well, explained short and sweet. 
 
I am lucky to be able to take photos in near daylight until midnight here in the summer (this was shot at 11:30 pm), and vice versa, be able to experience the winter here where daylight is almost non existent, with the challenges and opportunities that brings when it comes to photography. Also, I love the light streaming from the windows in this!

Today we went to a Persian restaurant called Zafran for dinner. Way back in February I bought a coupon for 2 servings of Persian tapas, and it had to be used by June 10th. So we were cutting it close!
 
The food was lovely, as was the place and atmosphere. It is definitely somewhere I'd like to go again. And even the girls liked the food. Sara the ground meat shish kebab, Emma the chicken kebab and the rice.
 
Here the girls are hanging outside after we finished our meal. Not sure what was so funny on the phone there!

Day 160/366: Tree Of Life https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-160/366-tree-of-life

I love trees. I feel deeply connected to them, and they have always played a vital role as a source of spiritual inspiration and comfort to me. The older and more crocked/tall, the better. With big, deep roots. In mythology, trees are regarded as very powerful, and almost every mythological system has a powerful tree as part of their myth. In Norse mythology we have Yggdrasil, or the evergreen world tree. It represents the world's meridian and serve as a connection between people, the powers of the heavens and the earth. In mythology, trees take on magical powers and become the centre of our fascination – they offer us a sense of the unknown. Of our past even beyond ourselves. They offer us a living reminder of events so wondrous as to be beyond our comprehension. To be able to see and touch such a tree is a powerful experience, although we cannot physically draw from it any of that power - we are unable to grasp the complexity of these feelings, the tree has a superiority over us.

A sense of belonging is something many people strive to achieve in a community. The tree with its firm base symbolises that concept of ‘roots’ and an element of an ongoing relationship with our surroundings. The canopy drawing in energy from its environment is symbolic of our need to absorb our cultural heritage in order to feel in tune with our evolution from times past. The drive to find an historic link with our present lives is almost instinctive and propels us forward as if on a quest to attain status and find a reason for being. The material strength of the trunk and its part in holding the tree together is perhaps symbolic of our need for inner strength.
(Tim Partridge)

Day 157/366: Resilient https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-157/366-resilient Day 157/366: Resilient

The physical powers of the body cannot be separated from the rationale of the mind and the emotions of the heart. They are one and the same, a compilation of a singular being. It is in the harmony of these three-body, mind, and heart- that we find spirit.
...
 
Spirit. In every language in all the Realms, surface and Underdark, in every time and every place, the word has a ring of strength and determination. It is the hero's strength, the mother's resilience, and the poor man's armor. It cannot be broken, and it cannot be taken away.
R.A. Salvatore

Day 154/366: Dark Sun https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-154/366-dark-sun Day 154/366: Dark Sun

The moon is always jealous of the heat of the day, just as the sun always longs for something dark and deep.
Alice Hoffman
 
Be still sad heart and cease repining, behind the clouds the sun is shining; thy fate is the common fate of all; into each life some rain must fall-some days must be dark and dreary.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
 
Some times it is the "imperfect" shots that you end up liking the bestt. Shot this on my way to IKEA, against the sun which made it all dark. But, that is what "makes" the shot me thinks.

Day 153/366: Neighborhood bikes https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-153/366-neighborhood-bikes Day 153/366: Neighborhood bikes Saw these bikes in the little passage that runs through the gardens of our apartment complex and the gardens of the apartment complex that lies behind us. I so want a bike! Have not had one for ages, and it would be so much easier and faster for me to go where I want to go without having to be depended on public transport and/or walk! I don't mind walking, but it takes a lot of time - and I would love to be able to go for bicycle rides with the girls. Somehow I will have to find room within our tight budget to save up for one. 

The passage that runs in-between the gardens of our apartment complex and the one behind us. My place is the one at the very end there, second floor... the balcony that belongs to me is the sort of hidden behind those branches there, not the top one.

Day 151/366: The goons! https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-151/366-the-goons Day 151/366: The goons!

This was Wednesday, and by this time, the teachers (and many more with them, the ones that pick up trash, lot of other city and state employees, among other everyone in my department  except me and my coworker in Bergen so we were super busy!) had been on strike for a week As I am writing this, it has been almost two weeks with no school for the kids. The challenge has been to figure out where they can be - one thing is to let my oldest be home alone a couple of days, but not weeks on end. And of course, the youngest cannot be home alone. 
 
We have managed with partly letting them come with us to work, partly having my parents over or let them be with my parents at the cabin, since they are retired. The blonde in the photo is one of the girls' best friends, and her dad works at the same place as me. They only have each other at the time, his parents live far away and his mom is sick. so, she has joined our girls for most of the time. This afternoon they wanted to make fruit salad, and went to the store by themselves to pick out the fruit. They did a great job, it was very tasty! They even thought to buy a lemon to squirt over it so the apples and such would not brown.

Day 150/366: Bergen By Night https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-150/366-bergen-by-night Day 150/366: Bergen By Night

Tonight I was in Arna outside Bergen, at the house of one of the women in my reading group to attend this month's meeting. As always, a very enjoyable and pleasant time with great women. 
 
Arna is situated a bit outside Bergen, so I was happy that I could catch a ride with one of the other women back to the city. She lives in the city center herself, so i had to find a bus to take to where I live. I could walk, but it was late and a 40 minute walk was not what I wanted right then. Walking past the fish market, I saw this beautiful sunset in the harbor area. The ship you see there is Statsraad Lemkuhl.
 
The serenity of the scene was kind of surreal, as this was the evening where the city hosted an Ozzy Osbourne concert, which had just ended, so the city was swarming with thousands of quite drunk and loud people! That in itself always feels kinda weird, walking as what feels like the only sober person in a myriad of drunk ones that all share the same experience and have bonded through it. It's like you exist on a different planet.

Day 149/366: Summer explosion https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-149/366-summer

This last week with the warm weather everything exploded nature wise. It had been so cold up until a week ago - May 17th the girls had to wear wool underwear under their dresses, and it was almost sleeting! The trees were not green, and hardly any flowers had sprung. But now, with temperatures up towards mid 80s Farenheit, it was only a few days at the cabin before we were bombarded with lushness and colors and fragrances! Absolutely amazing. It is the little things. :)

 

Emma went fishing with her dad and Grandad today as well, and they came back with a nice pollock we had for dinner!

Day 148/366: Reflection https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-148/366-reflection Day 148/366: Reflection

Sunday was just as gorgeous as it had been the last week. Summer heat and sun and we wanted to get a lot out of the day. We decided to take the boat out to a small island and have lunch and maybe swim a bit there. This is down by the  harbor where our boat and the book cafe I have many photos of are located. 
 
Later in the day we went to the beach as it was a bit too windy and cold to swim on the island - much better in the bay where the beach is.

Day 147/366: Snail Trail https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/6/day-147/366-snail-trai Day 147/366: Snail Trail

This day, we started our long weekend, since we have  < (or With Monday) off from work and school. Kinda fitted us well, since it turns our the girls' school were still going to be on strike - the whole following week and then some actually.
 
Anyway, we were expecting company at the cabin for the weekend - my cousin, her boyfriend and his granddaughter were arriving from  Hamar in East Norway. the little girl, Ida, was SO excited to see the girls again - she visited last summer as well, and the tree of them had so much fun! Weather as still super warm, so the girls were running around outside playing until almost midnight, while the adults were sitting outside eating shrimps and enjoying wine and beer. Good conversations were had. 
 
At the end of the night, Ida showed us some of what the girls had been up to - collecting snails! Some of the adults kinda freaked about it, but I think it is way cool. I love the fact that the girls are not squeamish when it comes to creeping-crawlies!

Today Sara was with me to the office again due to the strike, but we left early and went home to pick up the rest of the gang plus a friend of the girls, and headed to the beach. It was such a gorgeous day again, which we don't get too many of here in normally very rainy Bergen. So, we are good at taking advantage of the days were the sun shines and it is warm enough to go to the beach!
 
Kids were swimming and chilling - a good afternoon.

Not quite old enough to be home alone, and her big sister who DID get to be home with friends is not old enough to be responsible for someone else a whole day. She enjoyed being at work with me though! And if helped that one of the girls' best friends were also there with her dad!

We were all pretty beat after the Constitution day, so the next day after I got home from work (the kids had the day off school), my youngest daughter and I curled up on the couch to watch Harry Potter. Neither her or I (I wanted to wait until one or both of the girls wanted to watch it!) had seen any of the movies before, and over the weekend we got through the first 3.
 
She LOVED them, as did I!

The day arrived with lots of rain in the morning. It was a whirlwind day, and I was on my feet working my butt off from 7 am until about 9 pm. We had to get an early start since Sara had to meet up at school at just after 9 am, and Emma and my husband had to meet up in the city to join the theater group they were walking in the parade with. Sara was walking with her class and the rest of the school, and once again, their school won the "Price for best performance in the flag parade". They have won it before as well, and it is due to their colorful crowns, and the song they have made and sing as they are walking. 
 
We left the school to parade down to the city (about a 20 minute walk) to join the main parade there. I left Sara with her teacher (they don't want the grown ups to walk with them, it "covers" the kids up too much), and found my parents on the side of the road, settled into watch the parade. After this, we sprinted to the bus to get home and start preparing the rest of the food we were going to serve for lunch. Sat down an ate briefly, before having to head up to school and be in charge of the serving of food their the rest of the afternoon/evening. We had to wing it and change plans - normally we host it all outside, but due to the rain, we decided to use the gym and school kitchen instead. As usual, some people that was suppose to work didn't show, and I ended up running back and forth between our two serving spots refilling them with cake, coffee, food as they sold out. I briefly got to watch my girls perform - every year they have a talent show at school, and the ones that grabs the three first spots after voting gets to perform at May 17th.  Emma and her group of dancers came in second. And Sara's dance group also got to perform even though they didn't place in the top tree. 
 
When we finally got done and had cleaned up for about an hour... we went home to serve up some more stuff for family there. 
 
To say the least, I was BEAT by the end of the day! But, it was also a lot of fun, and most importantly, the girls had a blast. :)

Day 137/366: Constitution Day Preparations https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/5/day-137/366-constitution-day-preparations  

Day 137/366: Constitution Day Preparations
 
Today was super busy. Tomorrow, the 17th of May, is Norway's constitution day, and it is celebrated big! There is an official parade downtown every year that the girls partake in since their school is an inner city school. but in the afternoon, there is a lot of activities happening in their schoolyard - games, lotteries, bake sale, and other food, speeches and entertainment from a stage. And each year, someone has to make sure all this happens, plan for it and buy in for it and delegate others to help with getting the activities going on the day itself. It is the parents of third and sixth grade that has this responsibility each year, and a few of those parents again that is in the comity that decided and rules over it all! This year, I am in charge of food and kitchen and the staff that will sell and serve it all. all afternoon/early evening was spent at school preparing for the next day. What you see in the photo is some of the food we will prepare. The school kitchen is now used as  aclassroom, since the school is so small that when the first grade started last fall, and they were the size of 2 classes and needed an extra room, they had to start using every room as a classroom. Obviously, the kids that has this as a classroom, had English lessons earlier this day - see the writing on the black board?
 
Earlier in the day I even left work early to go home and clean, bake, prepare tons of food that we will serve for family here in-between the parade in the city and the happenings at the school! And made dinner... 
 
It is going to be an all day frenzy the 17th. Getting up early to make sure the girls get to the parade in the city, watch the parade, come back here to serve up a spread of food for family, then a couple of hours later, get up to school to do the work required until the evening. Coming home and entertain family some more after that again. Then, I am going to need a cold beer and sit down, finally!
 
It is a lot of fun also, though, and I am looking forward to see the girls getting thrilled with everything.

It was atrocious out today, full on storm, really cold, lots and lots of rain. It felt like November! We spent all day inside, even the girls. They usually can't stand not being outside and play for a whole day, so the fact that they decided staying inside was for the best says it all really.

This is one of the iconoclastic images from Bergen,  the city where I come from and reside. From Wikipedia: Bryggen (the wharf) has since 1979 been on the UNESCO list for World Cultural Heritage sitesThe city of Bergen was founded in 1070. The area of the present Bryggen constitutes the oldest part of the city. 
 
We spent the whole day in the city center, going to the library so the girls could pick out some more books to read, went to see an art exhibition that my youngest daughters' class had a part in as well as the Master exhibition of the students from Bergen art school. My youngest is really fascinated and interested in art and exhibitions, and loved the guided tour and all the interaction the kids got with the guide. 
 
Afterwards we wandered around a bit in the city as it was a fairly nice day. Some rain, but also sun in between. Further down at Bryggen the Farmer's market had their sale booths, and we sampled some of the goodies and bought a really tasty brown goat cheese.

Shot on my way up to the school to attend teacher/parent conference for my 8 year old daughter. 
 
As usual, it was all praise. She is on top of her class in all subjects, and also scores way beyond the average on the national tests they have for third graders. Like her reading - she reads 134 words per minute. They expect a third grader to be able to read 60 words per minute. And like the teacher said, her love for reading makes her a great writer as well .They have "creative writing" every week, and the stories she comes up with... her imagination and knowledge of words and concepts are tremendous. She is also doing great socially, has lots of friends, never gets into big fights and/or arguments, is always smiling and happy and well behaved (I had to laugh, and told the teacher about her stubbornness and temper that we see at home quite a bit, to which the teacher retorted that is a good thing, since she obviously feels it is ok to show all her emotions at home. She worries more about the kids that are angels at home and don't dear show their emotions there, but takes it out at school) and as the teacher said "she really likes to talk, doesn't she?". Yeah, she is a chatter box that one. 
 
We basically got the same feedback with our older daughter the next Monday. So proud of them! I am truly blessed to be their mom.

Day 127/366: Lollipop extraordinaire!
 
My parents have been traveling for the last 3 weeks - first Spain then Portugal. They came home just before the weekend, and on Sunday they came to visit, bearing some gifts from their trips. Among other, the girls got one each of these huge lollipops! My 10 year old was very pleased, as was her little sister.
 
I can totally see the teenager in her in this photo. 
 
Very excited about the ginormous lollipop!

I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?
John Lennon
 
The unreal is more powerful than the real. Because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. Because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles. Wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on. If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That's the only lasting thing you can create.
Chuck Palahniuk
 
Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot.

Day 125/366: Caught in the rain
 
Almost every Friday I get off the bus a few stops before my regular bus stop on my way home from work to do the weekly grocery shopping. I get ti all done, then my husband comes and pic me and the array of shopping bags up - and there aren't few bags usually! This Friday, however, we didn't need a lot of groceries - the time at the cabin meant we ate a lot of BBQ and dinners not planned for the week before, so we had lots of those planned meals to finish of the coming week instead. 
 
But when I was on the bus, he sent me a text saying we needed parsley for a meal later, so I stopped at the same grocery store to get it there. I didn't have more than a few bags to carry, and the weather was decent, so I decided to walk from there (about a 25 minute walk or so). Suddenly though, I saw this black cloud over the mountains, and knew I probably would not make it all the way to my place before it would start to rain. And alas, it started to pour. I don't really mind as long as I am on my way home, though, and relished in the freshness it brought to the air, and the way it made the trees and sun-warmed asphalt smell. I have this open top bag where I almost always keep my Nikon D90, and it got some sprinkles of rain on it! She can handle it though, she is a toughy. :)

Day 124/366: Meal preparations
 
I like to cook... a lot. But in the chaos and flurrying activities of every day, coming home from work to "starving" kids, there is not always time to explore and enjoy cooking much. I do get the passion over me, though, once in a  while, and today was one of those days. I loooove seafood! I know I have mentioned it before, but it goes so above and beyond any other food groups for me! So, I am always on the lookout for great recipes to try out that involves seafood.
 
Today, I found a recipe called "Scampi on coconut rice":
 
500 gram scampi
3 dl  rice
1 yellow onion
1-2 fennel bulbs (depending on size)
1-2 red chilis (depends on how spicy you want it! I used 2)
1 can of coconut milk
1 lime
2 or more cloves of garlic (I almost always use more than most recipes calls for, love it!)
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
3 tbs olive oil
 
Defrost and rinse the scampi. Cook up the rice with a bit of salt and olive oil. Put salt, pepper and some olive oil on the scampi and cook them for a few minutes only in a hot pan or grill pan (I actually put olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic in a bowl and soaked the scampi in that mixture for a few hours before cool\king, but you don't have to). Dice the fennel and onion into small cubes, finely chop the garlic and chili. Fry it all in a pan with some olive oil for about 10 minutes. turn the heat on the stove top yup a bit, pour the coconut milk and rice into the mixture of vegetables, mix it all together and taste and adjust it all with freshly squeezed lime juice, salt and cayenne pepper. Plate up the rice mixture, and put the scampi on top. Serve!
 
This wills serve 3-4, depending on their appetite! :)
 
The end result:

Day 122/366: The View
 
May 1st we woke up to gorgeous weather! And warm, so again, t-shirt and shorts could be used. We had invited some friends out to the cabin to BBQ, and they got there fairly early in the day to soak up as much nice weather as possible. 
 
This is the view from the cabin out towards the fjord and island on the other side. I love this view it always brings with it such familiarity and peace and history. This place is the one place that has been the longest constant in my life, as my grandfather started building here in 1944, so it has been a part of me ever since I was born. All other places I have lived, I have eventually moved from.
 
My friend has two girls my girls' age, and they have grown up together as cousins almost. So it is always an enjoyable time for them when we meet! There things going on in her life she needed to vent about as well, so it was nice to have a full day of pampering her a bit and time and space to listen and talk.
 
Her two girls enjoying the BBQ.
My plate - totally unhealthy but delicious!

We left the cabin late Sunday the 29th of April, since we had to got to school and work the next day. Although, May 1st is a Holiday here, as we celebrate the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Workers'_Day." rel="nofollow">International worker's day </a>.  So, After we were done at school/work, we headed back out to the cabin since the weather was still gorgeous. And it was suppose to be even better on May 1st. 
 
April the 30th is also my birthday, and there is no place I'd rather celebrate that day then at the cabin (well, here in this country anyway!). The girls and husband baked muffins and molten chocolate cupcakes for me, which was so rich and good. Super rich - I am a shocaholic, but could only eat one! Low key, but nice. I had shrimps for dinner, since my all time favorite food is seafood.

As cold as the Saturday was, the Sunday appeared with sun and warmer weather. We spent all day outside, in shorts and t-shirts instead of huddled around the fire place in wool sweaters as we had been the day before. In all, very typical April here. Or spring in general As I'm writing this more then  week later, we've had days in May were it snowed! All meals as well were digested outside - here is Emma eating a bowl of strawberries for lunch.

Went to the cabin on quite the chilly day, but there was promises of gorgeous spring weather the next day. I went out to photograph the sunset behind my favorite tree again, but decided since I just recently posted one of those photos, I'd rather share one I shot a bit later after the sun had set. I had a few shot with different amount of light in them that was not bracketed though, but still tried to make a HDR image... and while the separate photos didn't match up correctly so it created a "ghost" effect, I found the end result of it to be unique. And a piece that could stand on it's own and that worked better due to the "imperfection".

So it is no wonder that some of my pictures in this 366 will take place there I guess. Especially since it tends to get a bit boring, as I can't read or anything else that would make me car sick. I had my Nikon D90 with me this day, but none of the pictures I tried to capture while at work really worked out. Hence this.

Day 117/366: Spring Bloom https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/5/day-117/366-spring-bloom Day 117/366: Spring Bloom

Some changes occur suddenly like a brilliant flash of lightning striking across a dark sky. These changes are stunning, exciting but can be quickly forgotten. Other changes happen slowly, gradually, like a flower blooming in early spring, each day unfurling its petals another fraction of an inch towards the warm, nurturing sun. These changes are as inevitable as nature running its course; they’re meant to be.
Suzi Davis

Not driving a car has it's advantages. You get to see your surroundings so much better, the small details that you'll miss for sure whipping past in a car. Even if some days I don't walk more than to and from the bus stop, I am capable of taking in how things shift and change, especially when it comes to nature. These flowering trees is not very far from where I live, and I have been waiting for them to bloom for awhile now.

Day 116/366: Fjord horse https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/4/day-116/366-fjord-horse Day 116/366: Fjord horse

This fellow greeted me on my way to the work place in Leikanger this morning! This is a breed of horses that derive from the county of Sogn and Fjordane where Leikanger is situated. She was very curious about my camera and me, and also really wanted a treat - she kept nibbling on my hand that I tried to pet her with. Unfortunately I didn't have any treats! 
 
This was the day where I returned to Bergen, and by the time I left the weather had changed drastically, and it was raining and grey and windy. 
 
From Wikipedia:
 
The Fjord horse or Norwegian Fjord Horse is a relatively small but very strong horse breed from the mountainous regions of Western Norway. It is an agile breed of light draft horse build. All Fjord horses are dun in color, with five variations in shade recognized by their breed registries. One of the world's oldest breeds, it has been used for hundreds of years as a farm horse in Norway, and in modern times is popular for its generally good temperament. It is used both as a harness horse and under saddle.
 
The Fjord horse is one of the world's oldest and purest breeds. Horse were known to exist in Norway at the end of the last ice age. It is believed that the ancestors of the modern Fjord horse migrated to Norway and were domesticated over 4,000 years ago. Archaeological excavations at Viking burial sites indicate that the Fjord horse type has been selectively bred for at least 2,000 years.[1][3] The Fjord horse and its ancestors have been used for hundreds of years as farm animals in western Norway. Even as late as World War II, they were useful for work in mountainous terrain. The Fjord horse also has a long recorded history of pure breeding without crossbreeding from other sources.
 
It is day 116! That means "only" 250 days to go!
 
Some other horses I met there

Day 115/366: Valley of Leikanger https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/4/day-115/366-valley-of-leikanger Day 115/366: Valley of Leikanger

After being done with the work day, I headed to the hotel to change into clothes and shoes more appropriate to go hiking with. It was  such a nice day, and I could not spend it only being inside! The nature in Leikanger is dramatic and superb. It has my two favorite features - the ocean and the mountains. I kept finding myself thinking many times on my hike "I could live here!". I have always had  a dream of owning a small house by the ocean... and here that would be feasible! But reality sinks in, knowing it is not only myself I would have to move, there is family being involved. 
 
But, at least I can enjoy the spectacular views and sights while here. This is one of the valleys that goes from the small town center and in between the many tall mountains that surround Leikanger.
 
Here you can really see the enormous-ness of the mountains that surround the town. See that tiny house?
Some more spectacular nature. 

Fruit farm.
From a tourist brochure:
Leikanger is the SogneFjord’s orchard, with its around 80,000 fruit trees. This fruit district is 
at its most beautiful during the blossoming period in May, and is the municipality in Norway 
with the highest average temperatures throughout the year. At the end of the nineteenth 
century, many unusual and exotic plants were planted at the rectory farm, Prestegårdshagen, to 
investigate whether the climate was suitable for them, and the plants are still growing at this 
arboretum.

I went to Leikanger again today, for a second "phase" of my training. I was there in January for the first part of my training, and now I know that part of the job very well, so time to up the ante! 
 
I was greeted by gorgeous weather! This is right outside of the hotel where I always stay. It is so nice to be able to see and smell the ocean when waking up in the mornings, having had the window open all night! I love that smell and feel so very connected to the water. As said in a post from before. 
 
More of my photos from Leikanger can be seen here.
 
The fjord in the evening the next day. It was as if the Norse God Tor himself was grazing the fjord.

We had friends over for Sunday dinner. One I have known for close to 17 years now, she has 2 girls almost the same age as my girls. The other have known since our girls (my oldest) went to the same kindergarden together. So we go far back. The latter I also work with now! I made a leg of lamb, and it was delicious.

Day 112/366: Emma playing with Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra

Every year the philharmonic orchestra hold a family concert where they involve school classes to take part. This year, Emma’s class was asked to make their own version of Grieg’s Dovregubbens Hall (In the Hall of the Mountain King), and play it with them in the great concert hall Grieghallen. It was such an honor, and the kids had so much fun doing this. Since Emma plays the piano regularly, she was asked to be one of the kids doing so during the concert. Here she and a friend is waiting for the piece to start. I like how that young violinist looks at them. :)"Rhyme Without Reason Date Night 2014

From Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra’s web page:
The Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra dates back to 1765 and is thus one of the world’s oldest orchestras. In 2015 its 250-years anniversary will be celebrated. Edvard Grieg had a close relationship with the orchestra and was its artistic director during the years 1880-82.

On my way to the May 17th comity meeting at the girls’ school. May 17th is Norway’s constitution day, and it is celebrated big! There is an official parade downtown every year that the girls partake in since their school is an inner city school. but in the afternoon, there is a lot of activities happening in their schoolyard – games, lotteries, bake sale, and other food, speeches and entertainment from a stage. And each year, someone has to make sure all this happens, plan for it and buy in for it and delegate others to help with getting the activities going on the day itself. It is the parents of third and sixth grade that has this responsibility each year, and a few of those parents again that is in the comity that decided and rules over it all! This year, I am in charge of food and kitchen and the staff that will sell and serve it all, together with one other mom. Luckily, one of Sara’s friends that I know pretty well and get along with great.

And I have new shoes on!

Day 109/366: Dentist https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/4/Day-109/366-Dentist-1
 
Sara had an appointment at the dentist clinic to see if maybe she would need to have a retainer or any other dental work done to her mouth. The conclusion so far is that she might. She has a lot of milk teeth still, and it is a bit over crowded, so if some of them at least have not fallen out by late autumn, they might have to pull some of them to make room for the new teeth popping through. This is a student clinic, and she might be one of the patients they take in as a "case study" for new students, someone they can follow from start to finish through their years at dentist school, since she is calm and not particularly scared.

After this, we went into the city to renew her passport so she is all set for when we go to Greece in June. And after that, we had a mother-daughter day! Shopping and going out to eat was part of it.

Day 108/366: Still Waters https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/4/Day-108/366-Still-Waters

<i>You can not see your reflection in running water, only in still water.</i>
Elisabeth Gilbert
 
We all need to sit still, to be still at times, to really observe ourselves and/or the world. Maybe even more important for anyone that photographs.To see with mindfulness, really pay attention, whether your subject is other people, nature or "lifeless" objects. That is when you might be capable of developing an intimacy with your subjects. And you no longer walk sightless among all the wonders all around you. No matter the amount of expensive equipment you might carry around with you to shoot with, if you are not attentive and walk through the world with mindfulness, you are not seeing and living, and you will miss moments and you will miss life.

Day 107/366: Minus degrees https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/4/Day-107/366-Minus-degrees-1

It was freezing cold and minus degrees a couple of mornings at the beginning of the week. And the wind was bone chilling and made the strands of my hair fly all over.

Day 106/366: HDR Hike! https://annenyberg.zenfolio.com/blog/2012/4/Day-106/366-HDR-Hike-1

I am testing out some HDR shots. I am by far an expert, but it was fin to dabble with! Might have to buy the program, as you can see I only used the test version for now… Wasn’t sure which shot of the ones I dabbled with to use for my 366, so picked one randomly. It was fun,and also took me out of my comfort zone and made me try something (fairly) new – all goals for me 366!

On Sunday I went for a hike up in the mountains behind where we live. I opted for the less traveled route of Landåsfjellet, since up towards mount Ulriken, people were walking in a line! It was a very steep, straight up climb at the start of the trail, but once I got up on top, it was flat and nice for a long stretch. My plan was to take a round up there and end up pretty much where I came up, just going down a different trail since I really didn’t want to walk down a close to 90 degree inclined slippery trail! I followed some light posts that are part of a trail where they have put up light posts so it can be hiked and skied even in the dark (necessary here in the winter when it gets dark at 3 pm!), but I followed it a bit too far and ended up on yet another mountain top – Nattlandsfjellet. And it took em awhile to get back to my starting point on the roads from there! Oh well, meant I really got my workout for the day, burning 1700 calories! I have a exercise track app called NOOM, which I love, that tracks my every movement.

More can be seen here.

Day 105/366: Mother and daughter day

Sara and I spent most of the day together, jsut the two of us. There was a flea market being held at a neighborhood school, and a lot of people we know are involved, so we wanted to show our support. It was a gorgeous day so a lot of time was also spent outside on the playground of the school. This pretty much sums up my youngest daughter – physical active, fearless, silly, smiling and happy. And a big goof – meant in the most endearing way! After we were done at the flea market (she found herself some toys, clothes and yellow bag with flowers, plus Chinese checkers which is a game she has wanted for a long time!) we walked a long haul to go grocery shopping. It was a nice walk on a gorgeous day, and it meant I got my exercise in for the day.

Day 104/366: Backyard sunset

I’ve never really thought about it before, but it’s a miracle how many kinds of light there are in the world, how many skies: the pale brightness of spring, when it feels like the hole world’s blushing; the lush, bright boldness of a July noon; purple storm skies and a green queasiness just before lightning strikes and crazy multicolored sunsets that look like someone’s acid trip.
Lauren Oliver

The sun is finally up high enough over the top of the mountain we face, and long enough in the evening for me to be able to enjoy my backyard sunsets again.

Day 103/366: Morning Glory

"What are you going to do with your life?" In one way or another it seemed that people had been asking her this forever; teachers, her parents, friends at three in the morning, but the question had never seemed this pressing and still she was no nearer an answer… "Live each day as if it’s your last’, that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to be good and courageous and bold and to make difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Cherish your friends, live passionately and fully and well with the means you got, within what is. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance.
David Nicholls

Day 101/366: Class act

It has now been almost exactly 4 months since I started my new job. It has been a steep learning curve, which I actually like. And the training is far from done. I now feel very comfortable with the tasks given me so far, and at the end of April I am again flying up to Leikanger in Sogn to learn some more.

This day, however, I joined an all day class together with the people I usually serve and help, the case workers. You see, the software we use has different interfaces, and "mine" is much more intricate and complex than the version they use of the same software. And I didn’t really know how their interface looked like and worked, which is a problem when I am eventually going to teach them and support them in using it! I have been able to help them some, because a lot of time the problems are not software, but hardware or network troubles. I did catch on much easier then the rest due to my knowledge of the other interface, but still, it was a necessary class to take!

Some things don't last forever, but some things do. Like a good song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down on the corners and peering in close, hoping you still recognize the person you see there.
Sarah Dessen

Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don’t go along with that. The memories I value most, I don’t ever see them fading.
Kazuo Ishiguro

I spent all day today cleaning up in the attic. Part of that required me to go through lots of old letters, cards, photos and other memorability. It is both emotional going through lots of old memories (not at least the girls' baby stuff!) and taxing physically to haul all the stuff around, but the feeling of accomplishment when it was all done was great.

Can't believe I have made it to day 100!

We spent Easter Sunday at the amusement park (or tivoli as we call it) that came to town for Easter. My oldest daughter and her friend ran all over, trying out almost all the rides. It is funny when it comes to Emma, she is the sweetest most empathetic little girl you would ever come across, can be afraid of the dark, won't watch scary movies, but at same time completely fearless when it comes to all the rides at an amusement park.

Day 96/366: Maundy Thursday
Today marked my first day off for Easter. As said here, we all have Thursday through Monday off for Easter here in Norway (well, some people work on the Saturday since shops are open only then all these days). 
 
This meal is traditionally served for Christmas in western Norway, but it has slowly become a traditional thing that get served also at Easter. It is called pinnekjøtt, and is salted and cured sheep ribs that we steam and serve with puréed rutabaga, beer and aquavit. It might sound weird, but it is sooooo good!
 
After eating this heavy meal and drinking quite a bit of alcohol, I still managed to jump on the bike and exercise for an hour, loosing 617 calories - that's called dedication, no?

Awhile ago I bought this huge trout on sale, and today I decided to cook it for dinner. I stuffed it with lemon, butter, rosemary, salt and pepper, wrapped it in foil and put it in the oven. It came out sooooo good! And we have lots of leftovers we can make salmon (trout) patties out of.

Day 91/365: The Walk

The girls and I walked our way to go grocery shopping today, a 5 kilometres walk! Originally it was only I that was going to walk over there, and then the rest of the gang would come after in a car a bit later – I needed to get out moving, since the weather was so nice. Cold, but sunny. But then, both the girls decided they wanted to walk with me! This walk takes us past several places I used to live… one of them being where my husband and I recided the first few years he was living here in Bergen (he is from Iowa, USA). This playground is situated right by where we lived, although it was not there when we lived here. It is a beautiful area down by the harbour in an otherwise very industrial and traffic jammed greater area. We had a few rest stops along the way, and here was the ice cream one, portraied by my oldest daughter! They girls did great and didn’t complain once.

I love the sea, the rivers, the waterfalls, and dream of having a small house near by the ocean one day. I love swimming, and learned to do so at a very young age, and loved it when we went hiking in the mountains and I could take a swim in the melted glacier water. Freezing cold, but tit didn't bother me. Still, I will wade or swim in water so cold everyone else shudders just thinking about it. I grew up spending so much time in or near water, and would be lost if I had to go too long without seeing the ocean, a lake or a river.

As a grown up, I've learned to treasure the healing spirit of the water... it cleanses, not only the outside, but within.

We all feel the physical stress of life bearing down on us. I exercise as part of dealing with the stress, but the shower afterward is a huge part in the "detox" as well. We all have so many things on our plates: family, friends, work, social structures which takes a lot of effort, care and attention to keep on track. Spiritually, in our lives we encounter people, concepts and situations that we are forced to deal with in our daily lives that cause us to feel unsettled or challenged.

I stand in the shower a long time to saturate my body with water. Allowing my body to feel relaxed and open from the new energy I am being provided with through this element. The water is cleansing, healing, washing the impurities of the daily chaos away.

Day 89/366: Easter Musical

My oldest daughters class (5th grade) and the 7th grade performed the Easter musical this year, something that has become a tradition at their school. Normally it is the 6th and 7th grade that have performed it, but apparently the teachers decided since there were so many great actresses and actors in 5th grade this year, they’d take part.

This would be one of the girls in my daughters class as Jesus on the cross.

The songs and their performances of them were really great, so much power and umph!

Day 88/366: The state of my office

This is my workplace… being rebuild into a bigger office that will fit two people. Me and the other woman that works in my department will from now on share an office. I am actually looking forward to it, as we already sit and holler across the hallway as it is, and we get along great. Besides, she only works every other week. And the bonus is that we will get all new furnitures, new floor, new interior. It is going to look great in the end!

Currently I sit right across the hall from this building place, and it is loud! Knocing down walls and drilling and sawing makes a lot of noise! Yesterday I went home with a splitting headache due to this. But, I’ll live, only a few more days…

Day 87/366: One of those March days…

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.
Charles Dickens

The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star.

Day 84/366: Beer in good company

The kids stayed with their grandparents from Saturday to mid day Sunday, so we went out to eat with a friend who was also kid free since his kid was at her mom's place for the weekend. Really delicious Indian food at a place I have not tried before, and afterwards we went to a pub for some beer. Good times, good conversations, planning for trips in the summer with our friend and his daughter. Our kids have known each other for close to 8 years, since day care, and we have spent a lot of good time with her father as well. He's been through a rough patch, and is now eager to do all the things and see all the places that was difficult before. Made tentative plans to go to Ireland or Sweden/The Baltics in the early summer with them... We'll see

It was sunny here today for a chance, and I had to rid myself of my coat (you can see it hanging on the left there) when I was on my way to do the weekly grocery shopping after work.

Day 82/366: Pizza

On Thursday afternoon Sara had 3 friends from her class over to what they call "friends group". The class has been divided into groups of 4 or 5, and once a month they take turns at getting together the house of one of them, this Thursday being Sara's turn. Her class has grown a lot over the past 2 years; 11 new pupils, mostly immigrants, so it has been an important thing to do to get the new kids acquainted with the "old" ones and vice versa.

They got to us straight from school and needed dinner. We had them make their own individual pizzas - that way they all got to decide what to put on theirs.
