It is early morning on new year´s Eve. We will have a full house party tonight, and a lot og preparations need to be done. But not yet. Now I am looking thought the around 400 blog posts of 2011, reliving golden moments.
January started with a week on Tenerife for Terje and me. Sun, long meals, hikes, exploring, cappuccinos, love shared.
An icy cold February came with beautiful images of the city and the river.
In March I bought my very first camelia......which is still alive and spends the cold winter months in a cold room down in the basement
Easter was spent at the cabin. Weather not cooperating, but as good Norwegians we were outdoors anyway!
May was a wonderful months with a visit to Italy, both Roma and Venezia. Antonella and I spent a day along the Brenta River, but before that a ong time dream came true, a night in the opera in Venezia, La Fenice.
June, the anniversary months. This year it was spent with our guests from California, Jane and Lanny, at beautiful Wallaker Hotel.
July was a terrible, sad month in Norway, but before July 22nd, we had some very good moments. First climbing Bolten, at Kjærag......
then spending a week with Mauro and his family in Venezia
Searching for vongole in the laguna was a highlight which I will never forget.
August was the perfect month for my greenhouse. With fresh red tomatoes every day.
September came with more sunny cabin days.
October was a month of surgery, and then hikes in Bymarka to recover.
November sent us to Madeira
December is the sacred month of advent and the birth of a Saviour.
HAPPY NEW YEAR from me to you.
See you next year.
Picking out just one photo from every month was impossible. To see more you can go to the archives and then follow the months.
