things I like lately

breakfast at Åmot Operagard // Kodak Portra 400nc, Minolta SRT 101

- fall weeknight meal planning tips (I love posts like this!)
- learning that both "I was" and "I were" are correct
- I placed an order for our family Christmas cards (!) - I have NEVER been this early before! (the 50 % off discount at Elite Foto made me do it)
- the sunrise view from my desk at work
- hva jeg har lært
- a productive work week
- a slow Friday (that includes napping) after a busy week (I have a 80 % position and have Fridays off)
- I finally found a pair of simple brogue style shoes that fit and are comfortable (I'm 181 cm tall and have big feet - finding shoes that fit well is not easy)
- the first fire in the wood stove of the season
- if everything goes as planned we FINALLY have a working dishwasher again in a week - I can't believe how long this process has taken!
- seeing Sverre's love for his new stuffed dachs dog

Things I like lately

- dark rainy mornings - makes driving more demanding
- being too tired at bedtime to either read nor journal - I have managed to stay away from my phone though

Things I don't like lately

- during my autumn break week of working at home, I somehow got back to my bad eating habits of too much sweets and too little of real nutritional value
- having spent way too little time outside in the amazing autumn weather
- I have gotten back to the bad habit of checking my phone in bed after bedtime instead of reading and journaling

in procrastination mode

What autumn break looked like for me when I was a high school student, about 20 (!) years ago. Hiking, sleeping under the stars (and rock shelters) and waking up in frost, singing by the campfire - happy that one of my friends strapped her guitar to her backpack for the hike. Oh happy days!

It's autumn break this week. Sølve is at work, both kids are in kindergarten and I'm home alone (bliss!) - with a bunch of high school student papers to grade (bliss ends). But currently I'm in procrastination mode... Today I have

- had lunch in the sofa whilst watching Gilmore Girls
- done laundry
- done the dishes (damn broken dishwasher!)
- browsed for invitation ideas for Sara's upcoming 5th birthday party -
- made a killer tomato soup - the key this time was lots of fresh basil plus I used Coppola brand tomatoes instead of my usual Mutti - it might have done a difference too
- made a new batch of Molly's granola #5
- rediscovered drill & design blog
- prepared posts with the film photos from the August and September rolls
- had a look at the curriculum book for my next exam
- picked up about a hundred (ok, ten maybe) stuffed animals from the living room floor

What are you up to today?

a roll of film a month // July, part II
