winter wonderland

This is the view from my garden. And the sad thing is, I don’t have time to go out and enjoy it all. I’m stuck inside writing. Not one but two papers are due tomorrow. Blogging should be the last thing on my mind. Please don’t tell on me, I’m being a bad girl.

Danica at Coccoinelle tagged anyone how felt like striping a few layers by listing ten honest truths about oneself. Well here goes:

1. I drink way to much coffee. I cannot pass up my beloved Gaggia machine without making myself a cup.
2. Sometimes I think I’m just too happy with my own company. I’ve hardly done anything social, other than work, since X-mas.
3. I never thought I would marry, but I did.
4. I never thought I would have children, but I did.
5. I wish I danced the ballet when I grew up. But I grew up in the countryside where there where now classes. So now my daughter is taking classes. Kind of pathetic, but she loves it.
6. Books are my drug. Any shape or form.
7. I’m the worst vegetarian ever. I eat whatever I get served when I’m out. I can’t bring myself to say I don’t eat it.
8. I’m a socialist and feminist.
9. When I travel, I don’t want to look like a tourist. Which is hard most of the time considering I’m blond, white skinned with a broad American accent ( I lived in New Orleans for three years).
10. I hate reality television shows. I watch documentaries and proper English crime series like Poirot…and I listen to radio channels that play no popular music at all……. And I eat oatmeal for breakfast. I’m like and old person in a 35-year-old body.

Well I’m not sure how much I like myself after all of this…but I tried my best to be honest. I would like to tag “The wandereres’ daughter” and “apriliniowa”.

  1. Sølvi, you and I have a great deal in common! I'll do this tag today. I have been meaning to mention your blog since it's one of my alltime favorites....this will give me the perfect excuse.

  2. Well thank u. That means a lot to me:-) And the fact that we got a great deal in common makes me happy. You now, I'm a very social person, but I do suspect a lot of people where I live think I'm a little strange:-)

  3. Strangely enough, I have all but #7 in common with you. I've tried living as a vegetarian several times now though...each time lastly roughly a year...but the holidays always ruins it for me. With that, thank you so much for tagging me! I'll try to write my list tonight. I love reading your blog; your photographs are always so lovely.
    p.s. I should add that I do not care for oatmeal, or breakfast at all for that matter, though. :)

  4. Sounds like we have a lot in common :)
    It's great to meet a fellow feminist - feminism is becoming a bit of a dirty word these days.

  5. Er du norsk? So lovely to find your blog. I am also Norwegian, but living in the United States. Your daughter is gorgeous :)

  6. Hei Nina, så hyggelig. Ja jeg er norsk. You have a beautiful blog. I can see we have a lot in common:-)

  7. i can relate to a number of the things you list - particularly not wanting to look like a tourist!
