...svarte hull..../ ....black holes....

Jippi- endelig er det kontakt med "blogger" igjen! Vi har hatt endel problemer med pc-en vår, og det har vært helt umulig å komme innpå .blogspot.com adresser. Kjedelig. Men jeg er her, og prøver å få lest litt noen blogger hver dag;-)




yesss- finally contact with "blogger" again! We've had some problems with our computer lately, and it has been impossible to get access to .blogspot.com adresses. Annoying. But I'm still here, and I try to read a few blogs every day;-)




Jeg har hatt meg en kjapp tur ned til søsteren i Ryfylke, hovedsaklig for å hente endel møbler som stod der, men jeg fikk også med meg noen av disse kaninene, som er en blanding av løvehode og fuchs- og kjempesøte! Svogeren var bare glad for å bli kvitt noen, sa han! Det blir sikkert bedre bilder av dem senere...


I took a quick drive down tomy sister in Ryfylke, mainly pick up some furniture we had there, but I also got a few of these rabbits, they are a mix between Løvehode and Fuchs- and really cute! My brother-in-law was only happy to get rid of a few! There will be better photos later sometime... På hjemveien traff jeg på denne gjengen her...


I met these goats on my way home...

Det er ikke så veldig langt å kjøre herfra til Ryfylke, ca. 60 mil. Jeg brukte 12 timer ned, men da var jeg innom
GranbergGarveri for å levere endel saueskinn fra da vi slakta i høst. Det var fem ferjer den veien. Og et utall tunneler...på hjemvei bestemte jeg meg for å telle dem....de første 10 milene kjørte jeg gjennom 34- ja trettifire!- tunneler- og på hele turen totalt 66! Noen av dem var lange, noen korte, noen svarte, noen godt opplyste. Totalt ble det etpar timers kjøring i tunnell...Den grønne her er Lærdalstunnelen.


It's not very far to drive to Ryfylke, about 600 kilometers one way. I used 12 hours on my way down, but stopped at the Tannery to deliever some sheepskin from last years butcheringseason. There were five ferries down. And a number of tunnels....on my way home, I decided to count them....the first 100 kilometers I drove through 34- yes thirtyfour! -tunnels- and the total count (one way) was 66! Some of them were long(25, 11, 15 km), some were short (50m, 350m and so on...)some were very dark, some well lit. I guess I spent a couple of hours driving through tunnels! This green one is the world's longest tunnel- Lærdalstunnelen. Det var solskinn og blikkstille på vei opp igjen, men smale veier...


Sunshine and calm weather on my way home, but narrow roads...



Men nå er jeg hjemme igjen, og strikkepinnene går...har stadig noen nye prosjekter på gang...Ja, og så har jeg kommet inn på Ravelry, (brukernavn maritko) men har foreløpig ikke hatt tid til å sjekke ut hvordan det virker!


I'm back home now, and the needles are clicking...always some projects in the works...Oh, and I've signed up for Ravelry (username maritko), but haven't had time to check how it works yet!





Og så fikk jeg denne av
Ruth! Tusen takk! Ruth har en flott blogg, med en humor som jeg absolutt har sansen for!
Jeg ønsker å gi denne videre til
Bea, Kate og Helene. Dette er tre flotte damer med fine håndarbeider, og masse humor og humør:-)

I got this "You make my day" award from Ruth! Thank you very much! Ruth has a very nice blog, with a sense of humour that I really like!
I'd like to pass this on to Bea, Kate and Helene. Three great ladies with beautiful handwork, and lots of humour:-)


På tide å gi seg for kvelden. Blogginga kan nok bli noe mer sporadisk i sommer, men jeg er her! Ha en flott sommer!


Time to quit for tonight. I might blog more sporadically through the summer, but I'll be around! Have a great summer!

(and please:I've tried writing this in both English and Norwegian- tell me if I've made grave mistakes in the translations!)

I had no idea there were so many tunnels in Norway! Always interesting to read your posts...though I can't tell you much about how well your translations are, because I don't speak Norwegian :-) But, the English parts seem great!

What a beautiful place you live in. Sounds like a fun couple of days-love the bunnies! You're English writing is fabulous-no worries! Have a great week.

Judy said...

As always beautiful pictures. I hate driving through tunnels so I cannot even begin to imagine a trip like that.
Glad you got your blogger sorted out. I was concerned about you.
Have a great week.

Å så nydelig! jeg elsker gjeiter!
Ja Gubben er nok varm dersom han er her.. Gradestokken viser nesten 40 grader i skyggen.. Ha en fin uke hjemme i Norge..

Rani said...

WOW! What a lovely long blog. SO many tunnels! I wonder how long the drive would have taken you 'in the old days'. 10 years ago, Iceland was just a LONG LONG drive around all the mountains. Now we just buzz right under the fjords and mountains. Not so fun for someone with claustrophobia.

Great pics!

Glad you're back, Marit! It's tough with computer issues...we had some ourselves recently. It's amazing how dependent we become on our computers--LOL! It looks so lovely where you are...love the goast gadding along the road! And the tunnel photos like something from a film! Happy Summer Days to you all ((HUGS))

Norge er et vakkert land, men ikke alltid lett å være bilist :-)

jeg har hørt flere nevne Ravelry i det siste. Hva er det egentlig?

Bea said...

Tusen takk for awarden. Du er snill altså, skjønner godt kvifor du fekk den!:D

Å kjøre bil på vestlandet er ikkje berre berre no på desse tider, med dyr både i og utanfor tunnelar.. ;)

Ha ein fin kveld!

Eeyore has a different name in Norway?!?!?! next you'll be telling me Tigger isn't called Tigger!

66 tunnels is loooooots of small, enclosed spaces!
