Norway houses

Biddie to answer some of your questions... They do have basements in Norway. The houses are a lot like ours here, I guess I assumed they would be much different too. The White House was my grandpa oles house, my moms father, he lived there by the ocean growing up, and the lady with my mom and me is his sister. The brown house is where my gramp was born. It's was one of our last stops on our trip.

The grey small house was my dads fathers house, it's called bubakka. I didn't know the houses had names, I thought bubakka was a town. The bigger grey house is my cousin Rolf's house.he is the current owner of bubakka and built his house behind it. They live at the bottom of a mountain and took me up to the top in the car which over looks the water which happens to look just like our reservoir here.

The grass roofs have been around for years, the ones I have taken pictures of are at a ski mountain. Here is a new chalet just being built that hasn't been stained yet. The rich folks own these houses and go,there mostly on the weekends.

Ok my Norwegian relatives reading this, I hope I have explained this all correctly!!

Home sick today....

I've done something to my back... Thought it was best to stay off my feet because I have A pretty busy weekend a head of me and I can hardly walk right now. I went to the dr and got muscle relaxants for what she said was muscle spasms.

Norway goat

Not sure if I ever shared this picture from Norway but I think it's so funny, they really put goats up on the roof the cut the grass. Hi to my Norwegian cousins! I hope you get a chuckle from this like I do!

I have one of the best commutes to work

I really don't mind driving 12 miles.   Half of my ride is on a busy road but the other half I dont see any cars at all.

Storm Charlotte

Now both my parents have storms named after them, this one after my dear mom, and Alfred was the October snow storm. Our town did a really great job of clearing the roads, other towns are still having road closures, school closures and work closures. I got out of work about 11 am Friday thanks to a very nice boss. Ray and I hunkered down and woke up Saturday to a ton of snow. He snow blowed the driveway and I shoveled the deck.
