The kids and I spent last Wednesday at the museum close to Ålesund ,and it was great fun! We looked at the old buildings, made necklaces out of replicas of beads the vikings had traded and used as payment, used a knife, made flatbread, learned how to write runer ,looked at the goats-well, there were lots of activities! We got hungry, so we bought vikingstew- delicious! And it was boiling in these big pans ...it was meat and vegetables simmered for a long time with sour creme and cream...yummi...
And a real bow and arrow! Boy was he exited. It was harder than it looked though.
The area is nice, close to the sea, and they have several boats of different shapes.No pictures...but there should be a couple of links, so if you are ever in the area, take a look:-)
There has been knitting done...clue 5 of the mysterystole...I'll stick with the design,at least so far... I have also signed up for for the BeeFields shawl Knitalong...I ordered the pattern from Anne's ,and wish I had ordered her HoneyBee stole too...it is gorgeous! Go have a look- if you're not already drooling over it... So far I have no yarn-LOL- but I will get it done! At some point...!
Then there are the August socks of Sockamania, the top, the fish blanket, the...and in between some gardening. Hubby is using his 24T diggingmachine, another is using one 18T, they are moving stones, making paths and stairs and new garden...pictures later- I haven't uploaded them yet, and it looks messy outside... Hopefully I won't be away from the blog for so long -but it is still summervacation, hubby is back home, we have a lot of visitors(They stay at the yellow seahouse-that's where we lived for 2,5 years while rebuilding our house. You can step right out from the kitchen/livingroom to the sea...the kids used to fish from the front-it is not a porch, it is what we call a "brygge"-but my Englishskills fails me again,anyway, it is used to fasten boats when coming ashore!), and there is less time than usual, it seems.
Anyway- have a lovely weekend!
