not exactly knitting...
















After a long and windy winter, our fence and gate looked like this...the wind got hold of the gate as if it were a sail, threw it around and wrecked it. Something had to be done before we let the sheep out this spring. So my DS-15yr and I went to the top, carrying wirenet and fencepoles, sledgehammer and hammers-we used an hour on a tour that normally takes only 30 minutes...

Then we worked for a while, and here he is, proud of his work!He did a good job too.














The problem with replacing one thing for another, is that the first thing has to be removed. This photo shows how it was done-LOL.














I felt like a sherpa or something! Hit the shower when we came home, and ate spaghetti which DD-10 made while we were at the hills.

And then I finished the blue socks, while watching NYPD-Blue-next to last episode! Oh, no!

Have a nice day!


And yes, although yesterday was a bad day for a sheepfarmer, today brought us 3 sets of twins, which is excellent! Two of them were chocolatebrown with small white dots on their head- too cute! And I didn't bring my camera...

What beautiful scenery, even though for you there was a lot of work involved. I'm glad I found your blog.

Marit - The scenery is magnificent! It also seems to bring problems. LOL. Not sure I could deal with what you do and seem to think nothing of it. Guess I am too soft anymore. LOL

I'll try to get my "view" posted so you can see what I see.

Beautiful! I miss Norway. I can never get tired of looking at the beautiful mountains...like a fairy tale. Or, are these considered hills? Where on the Western coast do you live?

Kelly-We live in Nordfjord, Sogn og Fjordane, with lots of rain and wind- but also with beautiful scenery and an occasional lovely day-LOL!Where in Norway have you been?(I tried to link directly to your name, but didn't come through...)
Here I guess the mountains are mountains- but I'm from the south, where everything is a hill...
And Judy- if you had to, you'd deal with it-LOL
