My dreamhome, my “spanish prairie” 🏡 -but it’s good to have dreams 😊

Hi ❣Its so nice to see you ,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 💛

Yesterday I did “found” my #spanish “#prairie” 😍. Well,- that’s not totally true,- I was actually not looking for or after anything special, just dropped by my Facebook page,- and there it was- “my spanish prairie” , my #dreamhome 😍. Just “popped” up by #coincidence 😊. And, yes,- I did “fall in love” with the place, the house, the area,- at least by the photos on the #property- page 😊.

It’s just a couple of tiny little #challenges,- I can’t buy it – there’s no room or capital for that 😊. Maybe one day, maybe never. But I can keep it in my #dreams- and my dreams no one can take away from me 😊.

And its was maybe a bit fare away from the #ocean. On the other hand,- maybe it was possible to see the sea from the #view up in the #mountains. I do not know. And I don’t know how the public- traffic are raither. But,- at this point it’s not important 😊. It’s not a #reality for me anyway. It’s just a very nice and cozy dream 😊. But its good to have dreams too 💛.

Do you want to take a look at the “spanish prairie”? My “dreamhome”? 😊. Here is the link:

Beautiful country cottage close to the coast of Mijas and Fuengirola

Im a #dreamer,- as you probably maybe already know 😊. And I m trying to #reach some of my dreams and #goals as best as I can. It’s not #easy,- it’s a lots of hard work, and learning by doing, and learning by doing mistakes “on the way” as well 😊. And I also need to have a regular income in the #process for reaching my dreams and goals too 😊.

It’s days where I just want to give it all up. My goals and my dreams. But then I m thinking “what can happen to everyone else also can happen to me” 😊. With that means,- there can and will be a tiny #possibility for me to reach some of my goals and dreams too, or even most of them. Its just to #continue working for them 😊. But yes, I get tired, very tired and I really hope its “worth the work”, “the struggling”- because its also a lots of “struggling”, and sacrificing too. Not just a lots of work behind “the scenes”.

Anyway,- “the spanish prairie” was so “#me” ,- at least at the photos I did see on the #webpage 😍. I could easily imagen myself making food in the small kitchen. Have my paitings outside in the sun, or upstairs when it was raining. Read a book in the livingroomarea, take a walk in the garden, planting flowers or have barbeque togheter with my friends and family 😊. It was so easy to imagen a life on this “spanish prairie” 😊.

Its not sure that’s the photos at the webpage tell the whole reality. I will probably never know- because I m not going to see it in the real life, the reality. But its nice to have something nice on the #mind, in the #imagenation, and to think about now and then, its good to feel and be able to create good imagenation anyway 😊.

Its good to have dreams and goals- even its hard work, struggling and sacrificing for try to reach them😊. And,- many times dreams comes through too 💛.

I hope you will reach every little and big dream and goal you have in your life- without to much hard work, struggling and sacrificing 💛.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 💛. Thank you so much for dropping by today too,- and for reading my #blog 💛.

See you soon 😊

Look at this,- “a #spanish #prairie” 😍. A “prairie” that’s looks a bit like “#me” 😊. I did fall a tiny bit “#inlove” with this place 💛. It’s good I can have my dreams and #imagenations- so maybe my #dreams and #goals also can and will be a #reality one day? 😊

It’s raining ☔

Hi ❣Its so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 💛

It’s raining today, a lot,- and it’s not my favorite weather, but absolutely necessary for both the people and the nature here in South of Spain,- as well as, of course other places around in the world too 🌏.

The good thing is that’s it’s not windy,- becasue then the rain comes in “everywhere” in the houses 🏡.

But since it’s brick house without any insulation it get a bit cold and damp inside anyway. But fortunately not wet 💧.

The water tanks here need to be filled up, nature needs water, and people need these vital drops as well. And I – I really want to be home, listen to the raindrops that fall and paint 🎨.

But, believe it or not, my income is just as important and vital to me (and to most of us) as the rain is to life to grow. So I probably have to get out in the rain anyway 😊 ☔.

I know I need to be early in the road today,- because the roads gets very slippery in the rain, – and the Spaniards are not very good at driving on slippery roads 🚗. So good time in traffic is important, as well as slow pace, so that I get to work, and not least home again. Without any kind damage 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 💛. With sunshine, snow or rain ❄ ☀️ 🌧. Thank you so much for dropping by today too,- and for reading my blog 😊.

See you soon 😊.

Water, rain,- these vital drops fall straight from the clouds here in southern Spain today. Wish you all a great day – with rain or sun, snow or wind 💛

Put my paintings out for sales? 🎨 ….or still continue to live by ” the rules” ? 🤔

Hi ❣Its so nice to see you ,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 💛

I have wondering lately if I should take the #chance to put my paitings out for sales? For real ,- ” out there” in the “online world”? 😊

I like my paintings, it’s brings me #joy and #happiness, #timeout and a #relaxing space to #paint them, and I know there are some “souls” “out there” that also like my paitings too. Not everyone,- we all don’t like the same things, but supricely more likes my paitings then I was awarded of,- and that I have even thought about. I have got some good feedback on my paintings too. But …..

……in #Norway we have a bit, no- some very, very stupid rules actually 😔-, and thats- in short summary: “Dont think you are better, don’t brage if you do something good, don’t show of if you are proud of something you have done, don’t belive in your self, don’t be different “.

And, unfortunately and of course, this rules are in my mind when it comes to #my #paitings, as well as when I m writing in #my #blog 😔. Because I m #norwegian and has heard, growing up with and tryed my very best to live by “this rules” all my life. If not- it could give some troubles and challenges.

And I mean,- All the time I was living in Norway “don’t be different- don’t think different- don’t do different” – so its still a bit like “the rules” are “glued” into my #mind 😔.

Maybe this rules are in a lots of other countries too, probably,- but I don’t know- because I haven’t growing up in other countries then Norway 😊. But,- I m not living in Norway anymore (but yes Im still norwegian) 😊. So why not give it a try, both my paitings (as well as my blog- I m already giving my blog a try 😊) ,- and at the same time,- try my best to give a bit more shit in this rules, and try to remove both “the glue” and the thoughts about what “everyone else will think” 😊.

Its not easy to let a old rules just let go,- but I have lived by this #rules probably to long, way too long, and it has governed much of my #life too. Its stills governed my life,- I m careful to give even 100 % of myself into my blog- just because of this rules 🙄. Im careful with my words in my blog too- and the main fact is- its just because at the moment, still most of my readers are in or are from Norway. It is actually my original countrymen I fear. And that’s just because of this rules.

Something to think about 🤔. Its my original countrymen thats scares me. Hmm…

The thing is,- this rules don’t brings anything good in life- at all!!! Just a lots of stress and frustration actually- not any joy or happiness at all.

If my paintings can bring some of the same joy and happiness they brings me both under the #process as well as after when they are finish- why not try sell them? #Sell a bit of the joy and happiness Im feeling and having? Sell the berries I have to sell,– as a #business man from Norway says- and if he havent sold the berries he had, and had give a bit shit, he haven’t been able to be in the life posission he is now 😊. My berries are my paintings ( and maybe a couples of elf-socks too 😅 ….and my written words as well 😊).

So,- I m actually #thinking about to try to start to sell “my berries”/ my paintings…..and also a bit more “myself” into my blog too 😊. Its my berries- it’s something that Im actually a bit good at 😊. Special the paiting 🎨….. and maybe the writing too ,- and a bit more things as well 😊. Hopefully 😊.

It will be a bit work in the beginning to #organize it all in a good way. The paintings and selling- #process. And ,- special to organize awaythe glue and the rules” 😊. Thats actually maybe my biggest challenge 😊. But why not give it a try? 😊

The photos of my paitings needs to be good and bring out the #correct #colors and #details. I need to have a good and safe payment- plan for both the buyers as well as for me, and also a “sending- out- in- the- world-plan” to the buyers ,- so the paitings comes to the correct places and new owners. And I need to have a good online “#showcase” too.

Maybe my paintings can be “my brands”? Im a bit more “into” my paintings then make- up and fitness/ healthy powder 😊. But I see what can happen 😊.

So,- I have actually asked for two holidays off from my job thise days just to try to find a good process for me to do this,- how to promote and sell my paintings 😊.

So what do you think? Should I try to “sell my berries/ paintings “? And should I care about what you think, btw?😊

To be #honest, most of us do actually in some or another way do #care a tiny, tiny bit about what other thinks and means a tiny bit about our self. Most of us don’t like to be criticised to much- thats the way it is 😊. Specially not just critic,- #constructive #criticism are something else,- and something I can both handle and #learn by 😊.

Today it’s just some #thounghts about some of my plans- maybe I #manage to bring it out to life, and maybe I also can be able to sell a bit and bring some joy and happiness on the wall in someone else’s home? 😊 That could be nice 😊.

Anyway,- well all comes to all,- I’m just in my own way trying to find “my place” and how to just be “me” without my young adults children around in my home anymore 😊. So it can and would be a bit trying and mistakes “on the road” 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 💛. Thank you so much for dropping by today too,- and for reading my blog 💛.

See you soon 😊

One of my #paintings that I have given away 😊. Hopefully it brings #joy and #happiness on the #wall,- wherever in the world it is 😊. Its called “Warm feelings in my heart” – 20*20 cm 💛. Maybe I should #paint a bit more, and put some for #sales so they can be a #colourfull #joy on another wall? 😊

And a bit painting in between too this weekend 🎨

Hi ❣Its so nice to see you ,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 💛

Last weekend I was a bit #creative with the knit, yarn and knitting needles,- and did made a couple of “elf-socks” to my son in the middle. I have started on a couple to my oldest one too. I have actually just a 1/2 socks left. So at the moment he has 1 and 1/2 “elfsocks” 😊. And it seems that I soon need to make a couple to myself as well.

My slippers with duck- feathers inside said “bye-bye” this weekend. It actually looks like a small duck has been roaming around my home 😅. There are feathers everywhere 🦆.

I’ve tried sewing them, closing open holes, but now there was no more “patching” to do.

I did actually #manage to do a lots of things when I didn’t need to “run” after the time 😊,- or “sitting my butt flat as a pancake” for 9 hours 😅,- and holds 50 people with “company” on the phone 😊.

I have been #writing a bit this weekend ,watch a fun #movie, dropped by my lovely #daughter to her 19 years birthday, clean the home, did the dish-wash, washed some clothes, made some waffles, dropped by you a couple of times too 😊, and clean up my patios for the winter.

I need to admit that my patios did look a bit “sad” now without soft pillows and blankets in the chairs, the plants are been sat on #strategic places for all the wind that’s normally comes during the #winter 🌬 ,- and all the lights and candles are back in boxes for the winter-time ❄. Hopefully it’s just around 4 moths until I can take it all back out again 😊.

And I have been #painting too 😍. So I have been using my #creativity in different areas this weekend as well,- like last weekend 😊. Both with some textes for my, at the moment, “hobby- job”, my #jobby 😊,- and with #colors and painting, and a bit #knit to when I did watch the movie 😊.

I have some paintings I want to finish before I start on some new ones 😊. I have already an #imagenations about what I want to paint on my new, glossy and white #canvases. But first finish with what I have already started on 😊.

And….I m also wondering if I should #create a own page to my blog with just my #painting in for #selling 🤔? Im not sure, I have not a clue about #art, prices and things like that for a #armatures paintings. What I do know is that there are some people “out there” that actually are #enjoying my art, my paitings, like I do 😊.

This weekend I have been paiting a painting to a friend of my. Its soon finish too, it’s just a couple of “paint strokes” with the #brushes left, then some drying- and ready to give away 😊.

To be creative in different #areas give me so much #energy and #joy,- I should really #wish I had a bit more time to this “#creative #corner” in my #life 😊.

Do you have a hobby or interesset thats give you joy and happiness, #timeout and a #relaxing space in your life?

To write, knit, paint, make food, do workout, watch a movie, reead a book be with my friends and family are some of timeout “my areas” in my life, in different levels and with different kinds of joy and happiness 😊. I want to do this things a bit more then be on the phone “all day long” 😅,- but okay,- then its just to try to “#squeeze” a bit in “here and there” during the weeks, and a bit more in the weekends,- and just enjoy the time I have and can use to my “creative corner” in my life,- as well as friends, family and a bit workout, and other things too 💛.

Up to extra 9% off for Christmas lights

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 💛. Thank you so much for dropping by today too,- and for reading my #blog 💛.

It has been a nice weekend filled up with a bit “#creative” stuff 😊. This are two of my paintings I have been working with this weekend 😊. They are still not finish,- but I m getting there 😊. Both is to a #friend of my,- just because I like my friend, and I know she did like this #paintings too 😊.

Older men- younger woman, younger men- older woman 😊

Hi ❣Its so nice to see you ,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 💛

I did watch a #movie this weekend 🎥. By the way,- I like to watch movies in the weekends 😊,- and many times, I in one or another way, I do #recognize #myself in the movie too. It can be the #characters or the #setting, or #situations thats feels #familiar, or something else 😊. It can also be the #morale or #ethics I do like.

Many movies have some kind of morale or ethics that can be #useful in the “real life”. Its like with many old and #traditional #stories and fairytales ( maybe not so much this “princess-fairytales”- but even some of this can have a good point now and then 😊).

The old and traditional stories often was told for both #entertainment and for give the listener something to learn as well as to think about, and for giving some good “life-advice”/ #good #advice for the #life too 😊.

Anyway I do normally “use” a movie in the weekends as entertainment 😊. Like I did this weekend too,- but after a while I was starting thinking- “maybe Im looking in the wrong #direction when I’m “waiting/ looking” for this #boyfriend that’s miss a bit in my life”? 🤔 😊.

I actually did start to think about the “usefulness” with this movie already when it did start,- but then in a different #direction then the “#boyfriend- #subject” 😊. More about the #changes that’s happens in “the world”,- both when it comes to humans as well as what’s happen with the climate and nature. But that one we can take another day 😊.

The movie I did see this weekend was “I could never be your woman” with Michelle Pfeiffer and Paul Rudd. I do like both of the actors,- so I did think it should be a #good #movie too,- and it was- at least for me. It was #humour, funny and a bit #romantic, with a tiny “touch” for something to think about as well , for me 😉.

The content in the movie was an older woman, age 40, meet a younger man, age 29. Its sounds like a “big” age-different, but its “just” 11 years 😊. And why can’t the age-different between a woman and a man be that “way”, when it’s “normal” for a man at age 40 to have a girlfriend or wife at age 29? 😉

I know it are couples where the woman is older then the man, but its more and most couples the oposite way 😊. I have friends where the husband or boyfriend are 7 or 11 years younger then the woman 😊. I haven’t just never thought that was a possibility for me- for the long and serious term 😊. But maybe it is?

So maybe Im looking at the wrong “age- direction”? 😉

I have been in a #relation where the man was 15 years older then me, and after a while the age- difference felt huge, it was to big for me. I have also been in a relation where the man was 7 years younger then me, but there it was a bit #drama, to much drama for me 😅. But still it was a bit more #fun and “#action” with the younger one.

Age is often just a number,- I know. It can be young 60 years old people as well as very old 30 years old people.

But will a 10 years younger man find me #attractive? Things “here and there” are starting to work, sometimes to much, togheter with the #gravity 😥. The fine lines in my face are dropping by 😊. And I’m still a bit “there” where I want a man to feel attractive and attraction for me,- and of course the other way around too.

My issue is maybe “the attraction” combinat with the age ? 🤔 I know perfectly well how #old Im, my #age 😊,- even I feel a bit younger inside in my #soul,- and sometimes even do forget my age too 😊. But,- will actually a man 10 years younger then me find me attractive? My fine lines and “the work” the gravity are doing? 😊 I know it shouldn’t be important- but for me it is- this “attraction, and to be and feel attractive”.

I did change the #searching- age at my Tinder account to 10 years younger men down from my age, after watching the movie 😅. And it did also look a bit fun to have a younger boyfriend when I did watch the movie 😅.

BTW- my plan was actually to deactivate my Tinder-account after my tiny #Tinder experiment. But an earlier colleague of me told me that she had meet “the love of her life” at Tinder. They are actually #married now, but I didn’t knew they did meet at Tinder. I just knew she was and is very #happy together with her husband. So I thought “Okay, I can give it a try then” 😊. My oldest son also met his girlifriend and fiance at Tinder- so maybe there is a tiny hope for me as well? 😊

Its just one tiny little thing,- I get very fast borred at Tinder, and this “press buttons” “nope/like”. It’s not very much more that’s happens. And I don’t like to chat “forever” rather. For me it’s just more like a lots of photos Im pressing “nope/like” at,- and thats it. Most if the men don’t even have a couples of words at their profile. It doesnt “give me” anything in a way. Difficult to explain. But okay,- I can give it a try again. And try to be a bit #patient too, maybe 😅? It takes time to look for, and for finding “gold and diamantes” worth using a bit time on 😊. Its just not gold all that’s are shining in the sun 😉.

Im not sure why I haven’t thought there maybe was a possibility for me to meet a #younger #man to have a #serious #relation togheter with , but I think it’s a #combination of my own #experiences as well as the #society I did grow up in. But I m not there anymore, in the “society” I did grow up in, – so why not just try to “let go” of what the society means, as well as my own experiences 😊.

If an older man can have a long term and serious relation to a younger woman, an “older” woman, like me, maybe can have serious long term relation togheter with a younger man 😊?

My #focus in my daily life are not boyfriend- relationship- age, at the moment,- but, yes, it’s #dropping by know and then, of course 😊. But Im at the same time I m happy in my relation- the relation togheter with myself 😊. That’s very important too 😊.

I hope you are #happy in the relation you are in,- even its just a relation with your self, or a younger/ older/ same- age relation 😊. The most important is to be happy I think 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 💛 Thank you so much for dropping by today too,- and for reading my #blog 💛

See you soon 😊

Maybe I’m “#looking” in the “wrong #direction” when it comes to the #subject “#men, #boyfriend and serious relation” ? 😊 Maybe my “#focus” has been to much to meet someone at my age? If a older man can have a serious relation to younger woman,- there should be a tiny #possibility for me to have a #serious #relation togheter with #younger #man ? 😊

My little butterfly is already 19 years old ❤🦋

Hi ❣Its so nice to see you ,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 💛

Today it’s the #birthday to my #daughter. My youngest #child, my butterfly, my Mathilde 🦋. Its already 19 years ago since she was born. The days, weeks, months fly so fast 🦋. But still its feels like yesterday I did meet her for the first time 😍.

She was like a little doll,- so sweet, so tiny. And of course I did fall in love with her at once,- exactly the same way as I did with my sons, her two big brothers ❤.

When I did hold her in my arms for the first time,- that feeling was so incredibly big. It felt like my #heart was going to explode of #love and protection for this tiny, #sweet, little person ❤. And now she is a #young #woman that manage her life #perfect on her own 😊. But I still have this feeling for protect her as good as I can, but thats the way it is to be a parent,- no matter how old my are children getting, I think 😊 ,- and the love I feel for her is so totally and clean #unconditional #love. A love that will never disappear, its just growing for every day, week, month, year ❤.

Its just more and less one month since she did moved out, and for real did started her #independent #life as an young adult. She have also just started in a new job thats very close to her home,- and it seems that she both #enjoying her job as well as her new home 😊.

She have found her #paintings back again, her paints and her palette,- and also her #study- books are open 😊. She is starting to #creating her adult life 💛. Her #dream was ( and still is- but that can still #change 😊 ) to study mental #health in different areas in life, and also work with people and #mental health in different areas. I hope she will work for her dreams and reach them all no matter what her #dreams are or are going to be 💛.

Its a strange #feeling that all my 3 #children are now #young #adult, have their own life, and are now making their own #directions in their life 😊. Hopefully I did manage to put something useful in her “life-back-bag” , as well as to her brothers 💛.

She has always been my #butterfly, and are always going to be my butterfly 🦋. She moves and behaves like a butterfly, soft and strong at the same time, elegant and colorful, creative and silent. She is beautifully as a butterfly, and so brave too 😍.

She did start her athletic career in the #ballet studio, and stayed there a few years before her feet moved to the #football field, and eventually in goal as a keeper. And she was great in both athletic areas,- as a dancer as well as a keeper. As keeper she was so good that a spanish young lady- team did used her as a keeper in a bit matches,- even she was much younger then the rest of the team. Unfortunately she did destroy her foot, and needed to be more carefull on the football field.

I know she still dance a bit, and Im happy she does. Maybe she will start more serious exercises in that field again ?

She is a gentle and warm person with a big heart ❤. She really care for the people around her,- her friends, her brothers, her family.

She is one of the #bravest persons I know. It was not easy to be a keeper at a spanish young lady- team that really needed her, but at the same time didn’t like her. She was just 14, and most of the team-members was 20. The #fearness for #stranger and #foreinger are strong in #Spain too, like it’s are in #Norway, and in many other countries around the world as well.

I can also mention other examples for her braveness and strongness,- but today I just keep it to this one 😊.

Im going over to her home later today with the “mandatory” birthay chocolate cake, and a lots of #love and warm hugs,- but not to early even I really want 😊. She have celebrated her #birthday with her friends yesterday evening,- so I think the #celebration probably ended late or early,- it depends how we see it 😊.

5 years ago, to Mathilde’s 14 years birtday I did created a #suprice #party for her 🎉. And a friend of my did made a #gorgeous #cake to Mathilde. A cake with ballett- shoes and different #marvellous #details. It looked like a peace of #art. And it #tasted #fantastic 💛. His cakes are just art, marvellous art with a fantastic taste. If I get married again one day ( need to meet someine first 😅), and if it’s happen in Spain he is the one and only for making the wedding-cake, thats for sure 😊. Or maybe a cake to my 50- birthday insted 😊? But thats still a couple of years to 😁.

I did ask him if I could use the photos from Mathilde’s cake- just to show you the cake- art,- as well as if I could mention his name in my post ,- in case you want to order a cake of two from him one day 😊. All is okay,- so,- his name is Robbie McLennan and maybe you will find some of his marvellous cakes on Facebook 😊. And soon you will see Mathilde’s cake for her 14 years birthday 🎂.

Im looking forward to #hug my 19 years old daughter later today, and give her my best #congratulations to her birthday and #best #wishes too ❤.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 💛. Thank you so much for dropping by today too,- and for reading my #blog 💛.

See you soon 😊

Look at this #gorgeous #cake to Mathilde ‘s 14 years birtday 😍. 5 years ago the cake’s #art and #style still represents her so great in its own way 💛. Its #colour and #details, #dance and #beauty. And it did #taste #marvellous too 😊,- like I hope #my #daughter’s different experiences in her life will do as well ❤.

Let’s make some norwegian waffles today 😊

Hi ❣Its so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you 💛

Its weekend and a bit more time for make a bit different #food then I have time for during the weeks. But still #easy and #tasty food. If we can call #norwegian #waffles for food 😊.

Its food, but more in the coffee and cake- area 😊. Sweet food, a kind of #cake 😊.

I remember my mammi did made waffels in the weekends during the winter-time, not every weekend, but very often 😊. But the most #cozy I do remember was when she did made waffles outside during the #summertime, and then it was not necessery to be in the weekend- it was just summer, and it could be waffles in the daytime or afternoon ☀️.

With an extension cord through my dad’s “studio” and down to the patio, the waffle-iron and waffle batter placed on the patio table, she #fried waffles.

It was only to eat fresh, warm waffles when they was ready, and almost straight from the #waffleiron. We had to wait a bit, they were hot, but it didn’t take many minutes until me and my sisters ate warm and #fresh waffles with butter and either with #browncheese, #jam or #sugar and #cinnamon. Brown cheese is a #norwegian #cheese,- and the norwegian name is “#brunost”. I really like that cheese,- and if I m lucky I can manage to find it in the Scandinavia store here in the area.

We actually have two Scandinavia stores in the area that sells different kinds of food from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

Any way,- I do like waffles and I did like this “#weekend-#tradition” during the winter-time to made waffles, but I did even more like the “summer-tradition” when my mammi made waffles outside in the sun no matter what day it was,- it was just summer, sun and time to enjoy the days outside. You know,- its doesnt happen so often in Norway then here in Spain,- the possibility to spend a lots of days outside during the summertime 😊.

I have tried to bring my mammi’s “waffles-tradition” with me and to my family. I make waffles now and then,- probably more when we did live in Norway then here in Spain. But still I make waffles to my #children and me, summer as winter, inside as outside 😊. Im just not so effective as my #mammi 😊.

Waffles are eaten all over the #world, and are #available in #various #varieties. Thick and and square or thin and heart shaped. But nobody can eat more waffles than we Norwegians? We use waffles for both everyday and party, inside and out.

Its actually a #culture #history behind waffles too,- like it are with many different #food- #traditions and #recipes 😊. Waffles have even their own “#waffleday”,- and in #Europe its the 25. March. The #Americans waffle-day are 24. August because that day Cornelius Swarthhout did get the patent on the waffle-iron. He is the creater behind the waffle-iron and made the first “real” one in 1869.

European celebrate the waffle-day 25. March because the Christian #religion belives that Maria got the messege from God this day that she was pregnant with her/ the son Jesus Christ. You know,- its 9 months between 25. March to 25. December 😊.

Norwegians have sailor churches in different parts of the world, and waffles are a well-known trademark of Norwegian sailor churches.

So lets try to #make some norwegian waffles to day 😊

The #recipe for norwegian waffles ( enough to ca 10 waffle-heart-plates)

3 eggs,

3/4 cup sugar,

1 cup cream,

1/2 teaspoon baking soda, (and I also use 1/2 teaspoon baking powder)

4 dl milk, or water

5 dl wheat flour,

1 dl melted butter, 2 teaspoon vanilla sugar and 1 / 2 tsp cinnamon.

Mix the eggs and milk ( or water) together.

Mix the other “dry” ingredients together.

Mix it all together, also the butter.

Let the waffle- mix “stand by” for around 30 min. in room-temp. before you take it into in fridge for a while. Maybe even to next day. Or just make them to day if you want 😊. I think tge waffles get better as longer as they are in the fridge- but we like it differently 😊.

If you want to have slightly #crispy waffles you make the waffle batter a little thicker.

Ps- fry on medium heat in the frying pan/ waffle-iron until they are about golden brown 😊.

Serve with butter and brown cheese, jam or sugar, cinnamon or sour cream. Serve simply with what you like.

I hope you will enjoy this waffles as much as we do 😊. Tasty and sweet, crispy or soft,- the choices are yours 😊.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 💛. Thank you so much for dropping by today too,- and for reading my blog 💛
