Spring is here - I believe! The sun is shining, the streets are almost free from snow, I've cleared away all my winter
clothes and shoes; AND the janitor has swept away the shingle in the streets of the neighborhood! After sun and
warmer weather - I believe that's my favorite sign! It makes it a whole lot easier to wear high heeled shoes again!
I wear high heels all year around, but the shingle is not kind with my beloved high heeled shoes.. My JC Lita's has
suffered through snow, ice, sludge and shingle this winter and are clearly marked after this treatment.. But dad
knows his stuff - and was able to fix them up - and now they look all new again! I took them for a walk in the city
today - and it felt great. I wore a thick scarf and a poncho with a sweater underneath and I didn't freeze at all.
That must be a sure sign of spring, right? Anyway, here's some randomly selected photos from the apartment.
In the two last photos you can get a glimpse of our new bed - and the amazing headboard Mr. H made for me! I
wrote about the renewal of our bedroom in a previous blogpost. I'll post some photos of it later - I absolutely love it!
Paisley enjoys the sun just as much as I do - if possible - probably even more. He spends most of his day on
the couch sunbathing. He's simply the most adorable dog.
The tiny, knitted sweater in one of the photos, was my first knitting project that wasn't socks, a hat or a scarf. So
a bit challenging, but mostly fun. I basically used the Skappel recepie (Norwegians will know) and tried to
scale it, so it would fit a little baby. It was supposed to be a gift to Mr. H's nephew, but it didn't turn out just as
I wanted, so I'll do another try - and hopefully it will turn out a little better.
The beautiful - and very colorful - flowers was from Mr. H's grandfather - I think they look so cute! The gorgeous,
pink roses are from Mr. H's mother. They look so great on the dining table - and they still look fresh! Despite the
fact that I haven't changed the water or re-cutted them since I got them over a week ago! Mr. H is the one with
green fingers around here. I just enjoy them, while he takes care of them. Fits me perfectly! ;)
Wish you all a lovely weekend -
and a happy International Women's Day to all the strong, beautiful and independent women out there!
