Winter = Skiing

My wife love skiing. Therefore are we not at Costa del Sol at this part of the year. Today the weather in addition was quite lovely, so I took her to Sognsvann (at the geographical center of Oslo) and let her enjoy the one and a half return tour to Ullevålseter. In the meantime I prepare dinner which today will be Potetball

The last Sunday in Advent 2015

 Tomorrow the sun is going to decide if she wants to give us another summer and prepare for turning on Tuesday. If the world is going to be as it has been, that will happen.
In the meantime the main street of Oslo is highlighted and prepared for the darkest day this year

Another advent photo

Yesterday we had a short light lunch at Albert Bistro, Aker Brygge, Oslo. The snow we got on Wednesday had disappeared in the streets and the afternoon is dark and foggy. However, on Tuesday 22nd at 05.49 CET the sun is turning and we once more can start to prepare for summer again
Only 45 hours to go.

Early morning in Bogstadveien, Oslo on my way to the doctor for checkup after long stay in Spain.
The decorations in the streets are there to remind us about the holy season coming up.  Nice.

Paintings, Antiques and Beer from Horten



For many years we regularly visited an art gallery "Kaare Berntsen" in the center of Oslo at their Christmas show. This year it almost reopened. Not the same company, but some og the old people. For me the most interesting paintings are shown below, but due to lack of wall space we only looked (without buying) and enjoyed the beer from Horten "Hortenpilsen" Rooted back to 1854..
 The two first paintings are by Thore Heramb, one of my favourites.
 The next painting is by Arne Ekeland, and for many years he was an unobtainable dream.
 The last image shows a painting by Kjell Nupen, and the three dimensions he has made in this painting is really awesome
