Shopping with turtle steps 🐢😊 …. and a secret meeting … 🥰 …

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊. I hope all is fine with you during this days, weeks and months we all are going through 🧡

I’m fine, and today the Spanish Government could inform us that we are going to be in quarantine and curfew for 3 new weeks, at least to 26. April ⏳. So then we at the moment actually are halfway 😊. That’s not to bad 😊. It’s important to look at the bright side of the situation 🌞.

In general I have done my necessary food- shopping one day in the week,- as I do now. But this one day in the week shopping is now my more and less only opportunity to have a “tiny trip” out from my home now at days. Now my food- shopping closely are “The highlight of the week” 😅. It’s more and less the only day during the week I’m leaving my home for maybe a couple of hours 🏡. Because I do also some other necessary things then when “Im on the run”, then just the food- shopping,- like go to the farmacia or fuel my car, or change gas bottle 😊…..or meeting my daughter in secret.  I would have liked to have met my middle son in secret too – but he does not live on my “allow” shopping route. But I have daily contact with him,- he haven’t any choice,- then te me he is fine, or answer my textes 😊💙.

I am very careful about having a natural and legal shopping route.  There are police “everywhere” and they check that you do as you please, and do what you need to do. Like shop food that’s important for the living and not for the fun 😊.

My plan today was to do the food- shopping in turtle and snail speed 🐢🐌. So I could really enjoy just to be outside for a tiny little bit 😁, even it was inside the food store 😅. And then it was to fuel my car, take a errand in the farmacia in the centre, and then on my way back home have a tiny little bit secret meeting with my daughter,- just hug her a tiny little bit. ( and also borrow her the playstation I have/had in my home as well 😊).

It’s actually not legal to do that when we don’t live together. I’m not allowed to meet my children, my daughter and my son in the middle, and absolutely not hug them,- that’s for sure 😳.

But I miss them both, just to se them and hug them a lot 🥰. So my oldest son gets a lots of hugs at the moment 😅. He gets for all three of them 😊.

In the food store I did started my shopping with turtle steps and in a snail tempo, and really enjoyed to just walk around, look, find what I needed ….. look st things and stuff I didn’t needed…..until I did see the police did came and was waiting outside the store 😳. Then my speed did changed a bit.

I know the police are there just to make all and everything safety and securit, but they can be a bit “on the top” now and then, I think, – and use their “power” a bit more and heavier than necessary. When that’s said, the guardian civil is much, much more scary then the police and military together,- they really like to play “the big guy” 😳.

Probably are the police and military scared too, to be infected by the coronavirus. And,- death rates in Spain are very high.  At the time of writing, over 12,000 have died from Covid19 in Spain.  And it probably also scares the police and military to get a little aggressive as well. But because of their, now and then, a bit aggressive behaviour I’m actually more scared for the police and the military then be infected by the coronavirus, and I’m worried I have done something wrong, bought the wrong food, or forget some paper at home 😳.

So when I did see the police outside the store today, my speed changed from turtle steps to closely cheeta- speed 🐆. And I had been looking so much forward to my food shopping in turtle steps today 😅. That changed a bit fast.

It all went well in the food store, I did finish fast, and got all “the life necessary food” I needed for at least a week or two 😊. The police didn’t even check me, – phuha 😊 ! But,- there was also police standing on the road to the gas station, and I was still a bit nervous after my food shopping,- so I did actually took another way to the gas station, – and guess what,- there was also the police,- standing nicely “just around the corner”. But they either didn’t stop me,- so I could fuel my car a bit “peacefully” 😅.

Then it was next stop, to the centre and visit the farmacia and ATM. All went well there as well 😊. It was actually no police in the area at that moment 😊. And then,- my secret meeting with my daughter 🥰. It was a very short meeting during my car door 😅. But she got the playstation and I got my hug 🥰. Sounds very innocent, but this maybe 10 seconds meeting is actually illegal here in Spain at the moment. So today I did something illegal,- because I live and miss my daughter 🥰. And the playstation- thing can be understanded as not very important,- but it is. With 3 new weeks of quarantine and curfew rules she needs to have something fun to do,- and she is empty for canvas too, to paint on,- so then it is the playstation as an activity for the next 3 weeks 😊. She is going to be a proff in Buzz when this 3 weeks is over 😊. ( when that’s said, – we can actually get 2 more weeks with quarantine and curfew after that….)

It probably sounds very strange for other people that doesn’t live with the quarantine and curfew that we have here in Spain at the moment. I know my family and friends in Norway have a tiny bit challenging to actually understand and imagine how isolated we actually are living here in Spain 😊. Something I can understand,- because we are even living in a more different “worlds and cultures” differences now then before,- and you actually need to be in “the world and situation” for understanding it completely 😊. But that’s the way it is,- for all of us, – we can not understand a situation before we actually have been in a more and less similar situation,- even we can in one or another way have a kind of imagination about how it is.

The rules are very strict here and Spain, and the the consequences of breaking the rules are even more stringen. Something I can understand because of the situation the country is in at the moment 😔.

My food shopping trip went well, and my turtle steps too, for a tiny while 🐢,- and my secret 10 seconds meeting with my daughter was worthy every second and every worried in my stomach too 🧡……even when it was illegal.

How are the rules and restrictions in your country? Have you done as I did today, – broken a rule because of and for your child?

I know I did take a chance when I did what I did today,- and it wasn’t a life necessary act either. At the same time I don’t regret it, and I have done it again 🧡. I know it is a bit important for my daughter to have something to do during the 3 next weeks,- and the only thing I could help her with was to give her the playstation 🎮😊. Stupid, unnecessary, illegal, – yes in some eyes. But still important for my daughter and important for me 💚.

I’m sending you a lots of great thoughts 🧡. I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊.

Turtle steps n the store can be cozy steps in a quarantine and curfew time 😊

1. April is just a joke 🥳🤭

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this days and weeks we all are going through 🧡

Today is 1. April, and today it’s actually allowed to “take” a funny “white lie”, or tell a not truth joke with a touch of humor in 🤭. At least in all of Europe as well as in North America this is a “folk tradition”/ tradition between the people, but not any kind of Holyday, this 1.April 😊.

The origins of April 1 are somewhat debated.  There are French written sources which refer to April Fool’s in 1582, and Dutch written sources which refer to the custom in 1508. In Great Britain there are written sources dating back to the 18th century 📜.

2019

One thing is certain, however, and that is that the 1st of April custom originates from the universal celebration of spring equinox, which begins March 25 and ends April 21.  In conjunction with this period, reckless spring parties were arranged, with the world turned slightly on its head 🌱⚘.

April means “opening up, waking up” – and nature comes to life after winter 🌞❄.

At the old spring equinoxes, the alcohol flowed freely, people fasted and drank, and the life general had “mediating” circumstances, even the lawless received mitigating penalties during this period.  The spring break parties were in a sense a “safety cord”, at the same time a small respite, to the otherwise strict and authoritarian system 🤸‍♀️🥳.

During the spring feasts, the world turned a bit on its head.  It was allowed to throw flour and rotten tomatoes at each other, women dressed in men’s clothes and visa verca.  Soldiers commanded officers 🤭.

In Spain, “the day of the innocent saints” is celebrated, and then in memory of when Herod declared death over all the infants in Bethlehem to annihilate the newborn Jesus of Nazareth.  The Catholic Church celebrates this day on December 28, and is in a sense the Catholic response to non-Catholic’s traditional April Fool’s.  But Spanish media makes it look like absurd media these days, publishing untrue news 🗞.

I have not dared to read either Spanish or Nordic news today.  Maybe there will be an “happy”, but untruthful news about the various negative circumstances that coronavirus and the disease Covid19 have brought about? I find out anyway tomorrow 😊.

I myself have not been so good at making April fools to others, and I haven’t been fooled that often either.  My best April Fool’s I made a few years ago, after I had moved to Spain.  Then I arranged a photo with a white lace dress, rings, jewelry, shoes, flowers – and wrote a vague text on happiness, joy and love.  This is to make people think I should get married.  Some people bet on, but those who know me well didn’t 🤭. And today I did try to make a April fool to my oldest son, and told him that the reason I was so tired now at days was because he was going to be a big brother again 😁. First he did look at me with very big eyes, and then he said “No, it’s not possible. I have been living here for soon 2 months” 😅.

So,- I didn’t manage to do a good and believed April fool this year either 🤭. Have you manage to fool anyone today with a April fool? Or have you any good April fool someone did believe in? 😊

I hope you will have bd get a good day with a touch and two of good humor and April fool in 🤭😅😁.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. I’m sending you a lots of good thoughts 🧡. And Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊

I didn’t have any other “funny fools” available today,- then this “guys” 😁

1. April,- the day when it is allowed to bring out a joke, or fool someone, use a white, humor little like too 🤭. I’m not very good to create April fool, but I have tried now and then 🤭. Have you got or given any funny and good April fools today? 🤭

Thank you March 🧡,- and Welcome April 💚

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this days and weeks we all are going through 🧡

March is over, and April is just started. I remember when I did write my first post this year, and did welcome 2020,- as I still do 🧡,- I remember I did write I knew it would come changes, challenges, new experiences in life, new wisdom and knowledge, as well as suprices. I didn’t knew what kind of changes or challenges, wisdom and knowledge, experiences and suprices. Just that there will and would be some – because that’s a part of our life. Big or small, new or old. There’s always a tiny bit of them during a day, week, month and year 💚.

But,- I didn’t expect that kind of changes and challenges, wisdom and knowledge, suprices and experiences that I (and most of the world together with me) suddenly got, and still have almost before we reached halfway in March this year.  I think that few of us expected that a whole world would be turned “upside down” and almost completely set the timeout for a while,- and that’s because of a tiny, tiny virus, but incredibly powerful viruse 🌏.

But even my “world”, my daily life and my different plans for March was turned “upside down” from one day to another, and even I have actually being living in quarantine and curfew more then the half of March, I still feel I have many different things to be grateful for in this month 💚.

I can’t write first and second, third and fourth things what I’m grateful for. I can’t just range and put a number on what I most and less grateful for. I’m grateful for several different things in my life, from March, and grateful in different ways as well 💚.

I’m grateful for a tiny romance that I met in the beginning of this year, as well as a flirt and fling that started in February. What will happen with one or the other when we are in the middle of April or maybe even in the beginning of May,- I have no idea. But I’m still grateful for this feelings and experiences 🧡.

I’m grateful for that my 3 children are healthy, and at this time, don’t live alone. And I’m grateful for having daily contact will all three of them,- and I’m grateful for that all 3 still have work,- and I really hope that can and will continue 🧡.

I’m grateful for my home. I have a good place to be in quarantine and curfew. And I’m grateful for the opportunity to be creative in my home,- even I have been “whined” about the boys/ young men I’m living together with at the moment. I’m still grateful for knowing they are safe in my home 💙. And I’m grateful for the food we have and the possibility to drink clean water. I’m grateful for my internet and my washing machine, the water in the shower and my bed, the electricity and other technologies things and stuff that’s makes our quarantine and curfew,- life a bit easier 💚.

I’m grateful for all the rain that has fallen from the sky during more and less the two lasts weeks ☔. It’s good for the humans, animals, plants, flowers and nature, and our water tanks for the summer too 💙. The rain together with the sun creates life 💚🍀💙.

I’m grateful for both my jobs, even I lost some workinghours on my “online social and health job” last week. I still have my jobs, two jobs I really do enjoy 🧡,- and hopefully it will continue that way too,- that I still have this two jobs next month, even next year at this time 💚.

I’m grateful for that my family and friends both in Norway and in Spain are healthy, and so fare no one of them have got the coronavirus or Covid19 💚. And I’m grateful for that I’m healthy too 🧡. (And the last day in March, 31.03 is my little sisters birthday too,- and I still remember that day she was born, it was on a Wednesday 🎁)

And I’m grateful for my mind, my possibility to be creative and the opportunity I have to create,- even it has been more knitting then painting lately 🧶.

And I’m very grateful for you all too,- you that reads my blog, you that choose to follow my blog, and even “like” my posts 💚. Thank you so so much,- all and each of you 🧡.

So,- yes March,- you have shown me that I have so much to be grateful for ❤. I have spent most of my time in my home during March, but it has been a good time so fare,- even it’s a scary time, painful time and very unsure time, special when it comes to “what will happen after the curfew and quarantine”? I choose to try to live this day, be grateful for this day, this month, March, this year so fare,- and try to let tomorrow be tomorrow as best as I can, and focus positive, use my mind in a positive way as possible ❤. And try not to worried to much about something I actually don’t know anything about- because I don’t know anything about “what will happen when the human and the earth is well and healthy again” 🍀.

So Thank you, March 💚,- you had shown me different things in life, teach me a bit more about my self 💚. I m very grateful for meeting you, March,- even you brought with you big challenges and big changes 💚. There’s also wisdom and knowledge, new experiences and even some small daily, nice “surprises” too 💚.

Welcome April ❤🍀. I have no idea what you will bring me or give me, my life, my children, family and friends, or the rest of the world 🌏🍀. But I wish you very welcome, and I’m looking forward to meet you, experiences you, teach from you, see you 💚🍀. I will try to go my best with you and for you, April,- and the changes and challenges you maybe will bring with you, as well as the wisdom and knowledge. I will try to use it as useful as I can, as well as new experiences in my life 🧡.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. I really hope you have some great things to be grateful for during March, even it was a challenged month with unexpected “happenings” 🧡. Take care 🧡. And Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊.

The water, the rain, together with the sun creates life 💙🍀💚

Thank you, March 💙,- I’m grateful for your “life- lessons” this month, even they have been different from what “life- lessons” I’m use too. You become a very strange month, but at the same time with s lots of good things to be so grateful for 💚. Welcome April,- I don’t know what you will bring or give me,- but I’m looking forward to meet you 🧡🍀.

A couple of more knit hats, scarf and elf- socks 😊🧶

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this days and weeks we all are going through 🧡

It’s not easy to stay indoors “all the time” like we are doing in Spain at the moment,- but it’s really important to follow the rules and restrictions we are given 😊.

I’m not bored to be indoors and inside “all day long”,- but I need to admit it has been really nice with just a tiny little walk in the park or just around in the area where I’m living in. At the same time, most of the time we have been in quarantine and curfew here in the area I’m living in Spain it has actually been raining…. a lot ☔. Hopefully there will be a possibility for a tiny walk in a couple of weeks, and then without to much rain as well 😊. I don’t mind to take a walk in the rain either now,- a tiny little walk had been a bit “luxury” mo matter what 😊.

But Im not bored to be “locked down” and inside my home “all day long” 😊. I’m very lucky that’s have a couple of things to do 😊.

I have my jobs, and a working- and time schedule I need to follow. I need to be on time to my work even I’m working from my home 😊. It’s actually not to difficult to manage 😊. I have my workout as well, and a TV and a lots of movies I can watch. To watch TV in my home when it’s raining it’s a “lost case”. The television want work 🙄. And I have also different books I can read too 📚. And Spanish to study as well 😊.

I’m also a tiny bit creative soul, so I have been knitting a bit during the last weeks 🧶. I also like to paint, and I have two canvas I have started to paint on, and two empty. But because I’m not sure when I can buy some new canvas I’m just waiting a bit with my painting at the moment 😊. Just so I have something to do for maybe more rainy and curfew days 😊.

Lucky for me, I did get a lots of “left over yarn” from my mammi when she was visiting me in October 2019, and I have still a bit left from that 🧶. And I also had some yarn left from differents “project” I have been knitting to family and friends during the last months 🧶. My last “knitting- project” is now finish, and I’m already started on a new one,- and this time it is some knitting just for me and myself. That’s haven’t happened very often,- most of the time I knit to other people 😊. I have knit a couple of elf- socks to my self last Autumn, but that’s it. And they are very well used too 😊.

My last knitting project was to a student of my and his norwegian girlfriend 😊. He was, or maybe still is, my student because his plan was to move to Norway to his girlfriend in the end of April 2020. He also got a job in Norway, and the plan was to start in his new job in the beginning of May. So he wants and wanted to learn more Norwegian before he moved to Norway and started in his new job up there, in the North 😊.

Like the world situation is at the moment I’m not sure their plans will be realistic in April/May, but hopefully after some months at least 😊. I can see my student is so in love with his Norwegian girlfriend, it’s like his eyes are shining when he talks about her 😊. It’s a joy to see and listen to him as well 😊.

So I wanted to give them both something for their love, and for their living plans in Norway, and also because I like my student, and I like to give ❄. I started to knot to them before I did nee about the “lock down” in Spain. My pmsn was to give it all to my student on his last Norwegian lesson 🎁.

So I have been knitting a pink/ rosa sett with a hat, scarf and elf- sock to his girlfriend, and a blue, purple, grey sett with hat, scarf and elf- sock to him, my student ❄. The wintertime in Norway can be cold, and their plan is/ was to live on the West coast of Norway as well 😊. So some nice, warm, knit items can be good to have 😊.

Pink/ rosa knit sett to a Norwegian girl living in Norway 🧶

I didn’t had enough yarn to this Norwegian girlfriend so I need to be a bit creative and use some of the left over yarn I got from my mam. When I bought yarn to knit this to her I didn’t knew the stores was going to close down, or Spain at all. So that’s why it’s a bit mixed pink/rosa colours in the different items 🧶.

A knit hat, scarf and elf- socks to my student,- with plans for living in Norway ❄

I did had the same “challenge” with the yarn and colours for the different knit items to my student. I did bought some different blue coloured yarns, but really not enough. My plan was first to try and see the different blue colours combination before I started knit to him. But then the “lock down” “entered” Spain, and I just tried to be creative with the different yarns I had in my home 🧶.

To knit something to my self by leftover yarns it’s fine, because then it is just to me, and my use 😊. I can be creative in a bit different way to myself and my different knit items 🧶.

Anyway,- I hope ,- it’s also “the thoughts behind the act” that counts 😊. And it wasn’t to bad I think,- my students different knit items? Or what do you think? Should I just wait until the stores open again and knit in some other colours to him? 🧶

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Take care 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊

Knit hat, scarf and elf- sock to a couple that are hopefully “on the way to Norway” in a couple of months 😊

To be in quarantine and curfew, and have not the possibility to go outside can create some long days in between 😊☔,- then it’s good to have some knitting needles, different types of yarn and a bit creative mind 🧶. You find also this knit items in my post,- but no knit recipe, just some few photos 🧶😊.

The time, the history, and the watch too 🌏 ⏳🕰

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 🧡 I hope all is fine with you during the days and weeks we all are going through 🧡

It’s not s easy this time we all are going through, together, now 🧡. Some will turn the time back, some will turn the time forward, some will the time to just stop up, and some are just waiting in the time, but must of us want to have “this time” we are in to just be over, be the past.

It’s not easy to define “the time” either. It’s a very abstract term.  Einstein defined time in relation to physics and mathematics.  What we can say about the term “time” is that it is a term used for the constant movement of various events from past, present, future.  And the present is the one that can only really be experienced as real.

We know that time is measured in years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds.  And time was born with the universe about 13.6 billion years ago. Duration of time varies from event to event.  And we use clock and calendar to “measure” time. “The time” is very difficult to explain and define, in one way it can’t be explained either, but still we do, and still we try.

History is also about time, and different happenings and events that’s has happen in the past. In general history is about the human and what we have being doing, or how we have being doing different things and stuff in life. One by one, or in smaller or bigger group. But history is also about the history of the universe and the earth.

The time we all are in now will be our history one day, our past. And we use our calendars and watches to count down, count down to this “coronavirus and Covid19” time is over. But it has been different seriously happenings in humans life before this new time age we are going through,- and then they used the water as well as the nature and special the sun to measure different events, such as a measuring instrument to try to measure different events between two times.  And time, – the trader’s duration.  Duration can be from one hour to one season, or years.

We all have “our time”, “our history” and most of us have also our own watches so we can follow the time.

The first watch that’s was actually created to be able to help the human follow up the time, was sundial.  And sundial has existed since 500 before our time, and was made in China and in Egypt.  It is also referred to a kind sundial in the Old Testament of the Bible.  In other words, we humans have almost always had a need to define various events in our lives using the term time.  And to be honest, I don’t know how I could manage to define various events in my life without being able to use, explain and tell by using the clock and calendar, the term time.  Do you?

So,- when I was philosophizing about this with time, history, and clocks, I thought of the various clocks that I have had and which I still have, and the various small, simple stories I remember about my clocks. My kind of history in my life.

I got my first wristwatch to my 7 year birthday, and I got it from my grandmother and grandfather, my dad’s parents. I was so proud and so happy, and I did take really good care of it. I still have it.

My first watch I got to my 7 year birthday from my grandparents 🧡

I did use this watch until I was around 13- 14 years old. At that age I did baby- sitting our neighbours children and did earn my first money, and I did save them for to buy a new watch. So for my own first “salary” I did buy a watch to myself.

I don’t have this watch anymore, but I still remember it. It’s easy a fancy plastic watch, and the colour was light mint blue, actually. And when I did press at the watch belt came with peppermint scent from the belt.  I could change the belt and scent, and remember I also had a pink scent that smelled like strawberries.  It was m dad who was with me when I bought my second wristwatch 😊.

It was also my dad that gave me my third wristwatch 😊. I was around 17 years old, and had been sick for some weeks with mononucleosis. Actually more then just some weeks, most of the summer, and one day my dad come with a presents to my. My third wristwatch, and he had choose it totally on his own, just for and to me 😊. I still have this watch too. A really good memorie from not the best days in my life 😊.

My third wristwatch- a gift from my dad to me when I was sick during all the summer when I was around 17 years old 🧡

This watch I did have for many years, and it have been with my through my birth with my first and second child. Very easy to remember,- because I really did “watch the time” when I was in birth with my children 🧡. But my ex- husband was not the biggest fan of this watch, so I think it was for my birthday in 1998 he gave me a new wristwatch 😊. And I still have that one too. But it’s not in function anymore, I actually did try to change battery twice in it after we did move to Spain, but it want go. My plan was to use it when I was working in the home nursery here in Spain, instead of using my mobile 😊.

My wristwatch I did get to my birthday in 1998 from my ex- husband. An elegant and nice watch, but “that time is over” 😊

My next and fifth wristwatch I did bought myself to myself, and that was after the divorce in 2002. I still have that one too 😊. A big wristwatch with a tiny glitter and glam, a “symbol” for “my time” and a new time in my life 😊.

My fifth wristwatch, bought by my self, to myself as a “symbol” for a new time and period in my life 😊

And for a couple of years ago I did buy another wristwatch for my self, just because I did like it. In it’s own way it was “me”. But I haven’t used it very much, so it’s stopped, and I need to fix it,- one day.

This is a bit my “style”,- but I need the get the battery fixed as well as a new “belt” so I can start us it again 😊

I stopped wearing wristwatch many years ago. After a Autumn, Winter and Spring when I felt “all” I did, “all” my children did, and “all” we did was to “run” after the time, always reach something. So when the Summer did come, I put my wristwatch away, and haven’t been using it very much after. I still follow the time, reach my “thing”, appointment and work, because I use the watch at my mobile. But I like watches as a nice bracelet. Maybe I start using a wristwatch again daily one day, maybe not. It felt like a kind of “freedom” to not have it, use it, watch it,- that’s also why I never did started using wristwatch again after that summer without.

Well, – there were a few philosophical thoughts about time and history, and a little about my wristwatches.  We all have past and different stories.  This time we are together now gives us a common story, while each of us has our own experiences and stories, perhaps share one day too.

I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are 🧡. Use your time well, create small memories and stories that can be nice to tell one day 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡

See you soon 😊

The time, our time, our history together as well as apart ⏳

I don’t use wristwatch very much anymore, but I still have most of my wristwatch I have got since I was a child ⌚. And in different ways they have their own time and history in and about my life to remember, and also to tell. Small stories, but big for me in my life 😊.

The clock and time are turned a little bit forward ⏳🕰

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this days and weeks we all are going through 🧡

It’s “that time of the year” again, at least in Europe, where we turn the time one hour forward 🕰. In the autumn, October, we turn the time one hour back.

When we turn the time one hour forward, like we did today, we call it “summertime” 🌞. And when we turn the time back one hour, we call it wintertime ❄. So,- now it’s time for summertime, at least after our “new” time, and in our watches 😊.

There has been different kinds of jokes online at different sosial medias during the last days about “turning” the time “back” or “forward”. The different jokes are funny, but they have also made me think a bit about “the time”, “our time”, and also “the time we are living in” 😊. We are living in a new time age called “Corona- time”,- this time and periode will even be in our children and grandchildrens history books 📚. It’s a historic time, a historic world “happening”, what we all are going through during the last days, weeks and months.

One joke that’s around sosial media now at days is “Can we re-installed 2020 because it has got a virus” 😊. Not any bad joke at all, but also a joke with a lots of truth in. 2020 will always be remembered for the year when the “world war” was a fight over a virus 💮. And we also are living in a time where we do re- installed our different computer programs because they actually got a kind of virus 😊.

But,- what would you do different if you actually could re-installed 2020? Start 2020 all over again? And would you do things differently because the coronavirus was coming, or because the coronavirus would not be in our life after we did re- installed 2020?

I don’t know quite what I would do different, to be honest. But if I had knew that the coronavirus was coming, I would probably just sent the boys, my oldest son and his friend, straight up to the mountains in the beginning of February, instead of helping them out with letting them live in my home so they could save some money, for botha rental houses well as a caravan. No reasons to wait then 😊. And not because I didn’t wanted to help them out with the possibility I have to help them out. But because I know it would probably be the best for all three of us 😊. And I would probably said yes to met this (married) internet technician again, actually. I will tell you why in an other post, an other day.

But,- if I just got the possibility and opportunity to re- start 2020 all over again without any coronavirus in, I m still not sure what I would do differently in my life at this point. Probably there’s a couple of things I would and could do differently, but I need to think a bit more about that one.

I’m actually quite happy with what 2020 have brought into my life so fare 🧡,- except from this tiny little exception that actually is quite big,- and that’s the coronavirus. Except from that I had a feeling that “my life” was more and less on the correct and right track now 🥰,- with years with not to many right and correct track at all.

An other joke I have read on the different online social media during the last days is a kind of “reflection” to this “turning the time forward” 😊. The suggestion is to turn the time 4 months forward instead of 1 hour 😊. Then we will be in June- July, and it’s the big holiday month in Norway 🌞. And, of course, it’s an imagination about that in 4 months our life will starting to get and be “normal” again, and hopefully the coronavirus is gone 😊. But do you actually think we will be where we was in our life and mind in for example January this year? I’m not so sure about that, but I can be wrong. I don’t think I will be at the same place in my life and mind in the upcoming July this year as I was in this January 2020,- but we are all different 😊.

An other thing,- maybe this period we all are going through want to teach and learn us something? Give us some new knowledge and wisdom? Do you just want to drop that new knowledge and wisdom? I actually don’t want that. I have no idea what’s in front of me,- but I actually think I can learn a lots of different things from what’s happening in our world now as well as what’s waiting in front of me in my life. Also about myself. I also know it can and maybe will be hard, challenged and with different changes as well. But at the same time,- with new wisdom and knowledge in my life and mind as well.

In my mind it’s a bit like signing up for an exam in August that Im going to take in November- December, but instead of starting to study and read, teach and learn in August for my upcoming exam in Novembe- December, I just skipping September, October and a bit of November, and then take the exam in November- December with out to much knowledge about the tema or subject at all 📚. Also here I can be wrong, but that’s the way I’m thinking about this situation we all are going through and are in now at days. I’m not sure I want to totally skip what’s in front of me either, but at the same time,- I have no idea about what kind of “scary” things that can be there in the future either. Or that can coming up from this coronavirus- world situation.

Of course I do understand the humor in this “turn the time 4 months forward” 😊. At the same time as it made me think a bit about the “expression” as well 😊.

Do you have any thoughts about what you wanted to do different in your life if you could turn the time back to 1. January 2020 ? And do you want to turn the time 4 months in front of you? Forward? To start, in away “living” again in June- July 2020?

( PS: And you know,- I will be 4 months older in June- July too 😉 ….. so I think I would enjoy every second “on that getting older process” as well, not just “loose” 4 months of my life 😊.)

I’m just asking because we see and understand things in life differently, and maybe I also can learn something from your thoughts about “turning time back or forward” 😊. You have also a lots of knowledge, experiences and wisdom to learn and teach me. Show me something new, how to see the life, different lifesituations and situations around us and in life 😊.

And let’s not forget that when we did turn the time one hour forward, we are also one hour closer to a kind of solution for the coronavirus and the illness Covid19 🌺.

Anyway,- I am sending you a lots of good thoughts, and I wish you a great day or evening wherever in the world you are, and what ever the time is 🧡. Take care of your time and life 🧡. Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today too 🧡.

See you soon 😊.

To turn the time back or forward, or just stop up for a while? 😊

This night we in Europe turn the time one hour forward, to summertime 🌞. Some wanted to turn the time 4 months forward instead 😊. But,- if you knew what you know about your own life, and our world- and lifesituation today,- would you done anything different in your life from 1. January 2020 and to the day your life and the country you are living in did “stopped up”? 😊

Some homemade brownies for the weekend 😊🍪

Hi ❣ It’s so nice to see you,- like always 😊 I hope all is fine with you during this days and weeks we all are going through 🧡

It’s weekend, and even my plan was not to use to much “energy” on baking I do 😁. Special when I did find out that if I bake something, I actually get a clean kitchen 😁. It’s called “mammi-magic” 😉. Just kidding a bit,- but my oldest son and his friend has promise to clean the kitchen and take the dishes as long as I bake two- three times a week,- so of course I do bake then 😊. And on the “baking- menu” this weekend it’s homemade brownies 🍪.

How long this “solution” for a clean kitchen will stay, I have no idea 😊. But we try as good as we can to “keep it going” 😊. Maybe can my son and his friend move to their home Friday 03. April, or 12. April, or maybe even not before the 26. April 😳. We don’t know. I don’t know, they don’t know. It’s not up to them, me or us. If it had, they have probably moved out from my home already 😊.

So,- like most of us around in the world with home quarantine and curfew we just need to do the best of it, the best of the situation we are living in 😊. And the best of it today is homemade brownies 🍪.

Do you want to try to bake them? The recipe is very simple, but you know, brownies has a “habit” to be a bit “sticky”,- and this one are not an exception 😊. Just so you now 😊.

The recipe for homemade brownies: ( around 16 piece) 🍪

6 dl.  sugar, 8 tablespoons cocoa powder, 3 dl.  wheat flour, 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar, 1 teaspoon salt, 300 g butter, 4 eggs

1.Mix everything dry in a baking dish.  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the mixture.  3. Put in the eggs, stir everything well.

Keep the batter in a long pan covered with baking paper.  Preferably a long pan size 25 * 35 cm if possible.  Fry at 150-160 degrees, in the middle of the oven for about 30 minutes.

If you want to “spice up” brownies up a bit you can have in some walnuts, licorice or grated orange peel.  I didn’t have any of it in brownies today.  I made brownies with the basic recipe.  But the young men in my home did really enjoy them anyway 😊🍪.

Let me put it this way,- there’s no one left to put in the fridge or freeze for another day 😁.

Enjoy some homemade brownies for the weekend. Easy to make, with a classic and basic recipe, “sticky”, sweet and tasty too 🥰.

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

See you soon 😊
