Churchbells...

Just trying something...;-)
http://www1.nrk.no/nett-tv/indeks/167933

The son went to Selja yesterday, with the vicar, some classmates, and a filmcrew from NRK. The clip is in Norwegian, but you see the island and the abbey, and the back end of a sheep running down! Also, DS2 calling with the church bell.

He reported back that at least 15 Old Norwegian lambs had been born...


The barn is also filling up with lambs! So far it's been smooth sailing- one of the best years ever. I only have 19 spælewes, but by last night 13 had lambed and delievered 27 lambs...

I'll try to be back with photo's soon....(oh, have you heard that before???;-D)

Have a great day!

Snodig, å sitte i Glasgow og se på norsk lokal tv. Det er jo en flott øy da. Og jeg elsker ruiner av alle slag så dit må jeg jo engang.

Hygelig å se deg tilbake på blogg. Fortsett med det. ;)

Og jeg måtte fortelle mannen min at "det er en bloggedame som har sauene sine der"! Og en rødhåret gutt som jeg syntes lignet på en av sønnene dine! ARTIG!!!
Stedet står på ønskelisten over steder jeg gjerne vil besøke i Norge.

Oooooh...you live in the most beautiful place. I would love to have sheep (maybe2) one day. Will they mow my 5 acres for me :) Just stumbled on your blog, but i think i will link it to mine. I loved reading and those awesome pictures...that really does look like the most perfect place to live...but i bet it gets cold. My blog has been a bit sad of late so please dont visit for a while...if you do...nice to meet you and to see your beautiful spot in the world .

Hia Marit, huge congratulations on a successful start to lambing. The island is so beautiful. The English tradion was to have your 1st lamb on April Fools Day- 1st April. The higher farms are later, and the modern breeds are sooner of course. Some southern farms are as early as February.

It was good to be able to place you on the map- East of the Shetland Isles. It looked like your younger son had fun in front of the cameras. :-) Was the island being blessed or the sheep season? Sorry I don't know Norwegian.

Hi, Marit! Loved the links and seeing how beautiful it is there! So glad all goes well there...and with the lambs too. :o) Happy weekend ((HUGS))

Så interessant.
Jeg har lest rapporten og bispedømmerådet vårt skal avgi høringsuttalese, men jeg tror dessverre den allerede er skrevet.

Håper Seja blir med.

Glad your computer is better.

OH, BTW I just found out that my black cat is a Norwegian Forrest Cat, or at least a part of him is. I doubt that he is a full blooded one.

Take care and have a good week.

Interessant innlegg på tv... visste ikke så mye om St.Sunniva så nå lærte jeg noe nytt i dag og.

Så flott at det blir mange lam i år forresten...

Amazing landscape! Thanks for sharing your most beautiful home. I must also say how lovely Norwegian sounds. It's a very melodious language, very very pretty indeed :)

Kjekt å høyre at det går greitt med lambinga :) Har lyst på ein sau eller to, eg óg.. men først må det settast opp skikkeleg gjerde rundt utmarka. Får sjå kva hausten bringer ;)

Ha ei fin veke!

How wonderful, a successful lambing season, for those at home and those on the island. That is such good news, and what Spring is all about. The renewal of the earth and her inhabitants. Plant and animal alike. :)

Congrats on being lucky enough to be drawn for the Sockamania yarn this month. WooHoo!!
