This month (so far) in pictures.
Grandma’s homemade whole grain bread!
July 6th – Signed up at the new StaminaHot gym. They are remodeling the whole area and the gym is now up on the 4th floor. It has stunning views!
Post-workout sushi made by Skjalg’s stepbrother Pai – such a treat!
This random photo represents one of my “I love Norway” moments. The receptionist at the gym is only there for a few hours a day during the summer, so the rest of the time, the gym is unmanned. There is a little kitchen area with coffee mugs and a coffee pot. I watched one guy walk over, wash some dishes and put on a fresh pot of coffee. Then he poured himself a cup and walked back to the training room to continue training. This is something I feel could never happen in the US because of the liability. Here it just seemed so natural…and homey.
July 11th – Skjalg and I started the day with a hike up to the top of Keiservarden
That night, Skjalg had his shift at the restaurant (we’ve been working a couple shifts at Skjalg’s dad’s restaurant; I have mine on Fridays). He ordered some chicken satay to go, picked me up and we headed up to turisthytta (a sort of lookout point) to eat dinner and enjoy the midnight sun.
After last weekend, this has been the weather pretty much every day 😦 Trying to make the best of it and appreciate the coziness… but it’s hard!
