Speaking of the house, we are having our goods delivered on Wednesday! Finally! This of course meant that Saturday was spent doing a little preparation for our move. We took a few things from our apartment over, claimed closets, and shopped for curtains. Thank goodness for an Ikea being just down the road - the curtains we bought came with a hemming strip that allowed me to create the perfect length. A big feat for me as I am not very crafty. At all. What's most important is that they block out the light because during summer it is only dark from 11PM-4AM - I am mentally preparing now.
We also went by the Coop Obs (aka Norway Lowes) and bought firewood. In hindsight, we may have been a little too excited about having a fireplace because we bough a lot of wood. But at $10 a bag when NOTHING in Norway is every just $10, how could we refuse? So we hauled it all home and stacked it in our dungeon..err basement.

Sunday was a beautiful day, and we spent part of it outside on a walk near Somarka - just south of Stavanger. Its very wooded and still has quite a bit of snow on the ground. Pistol loved it, of course!
|This was about as still as we could get him - he love jumping around in the snow.|
|Self-timer perfection, if I do say so|
Wish us luck this week! I'll be coordinating the move while Jeff is in water survival training which encompasses helicopter crash simulations and a dip in the North Sea. I think I'd rather deal with the move...
