Friday morning I woke up to snow – thick, fluffy snow. Wow – it’s been a long time since that happened. I had a busy morning planned, so Snoopy and I went out for our walk fairly early. I thought that maybe it was cold enough that he should wear his coat today –
There is a strip of woods on our side of the highway, just opposite the lake. We go there often to walk, and usually there is no one there, so we let Snoopy off leash to run. He really enjoyed the snow – at first running just in the paths, but soon her was tearing around through the deeper snow.
On the road, there was a car stopped in the traffic – but as the cars ahead of it advanced, this one stayed still. The traffic was backing up behind the car, and finally they began going around it. I saw a man walking into the woods ahead of me……. and he went behind a tree and relieved himself. Then he walked back to his car and drove off. I couldn’t believe my eyes!
I met Hanne and had a lovely visit and warm home-made buns for lunch. She is a knitter and quilter, and a really interesting person. I learned a lot about how things work here, and we looked at some potential houses online. I can’t wait for the quilt/knit meeting at her house on Thursday when I can meet more Norwegians and Expats who like the things I do.
