Aking / Sledding


Vi har hatt nydelig vær i helga. Sol og temperaturer rundt -6 C. Noe som er mildt sammenlignet med de -32 C vi hadde i begynnelsen av uka. Forhåpentligvis er dette kalde været over nå. Vi begynte å bli litt brakke syke, så vi kom oss ut i skogen for å ake idag :)

We have had some great weather this weekend. Sun and  temperatures around -6C. Which are mild compared to the -32C we had at the start of the week. Hopefully all this cold weather is over for now.
Since we started to get a bit of cabin fever, we headed out in the forest today for some sledding :)

Tracks from a fox

En rev hadde vært ute å gått i løpet av natta.

A fox had been out walking during the night.

Sledding

Ungene for opp og ned bakken. Og fikk seg noen snøbad også ;)

The kids made lots of trips up and down the hill. And got some snowbaths too ;)


Bålkos.

Endre, Eirin & me by the fire.

Vi hadde rista brød med ost og varm te til lunch.

We had fried toast with cheese and hot tea for lunch.

Sunset

Vakker solnedgang.

The sunset was beautiful.

Sola er tilbake / The sun is back :)

The sun is finally back :)

Denne vinteren har vært veldig kaldt syns jeg. Vi har hatt ikke bare dager, men uker med temperaturer ned til -20 C og lavere. Men du lærer å leve med det, tar på masse lag med klær (ull) og holder ut. Torsdag tittet sola endelig opp over fjellet, for noen få minutter. Men de få minuttene føltes som himmelen, fikk fram et smil, og vinteren ikke føltes så lang, kald og mørk lenger. Sola varmer ikke ennå ... Men hun gir løfter om at våren kommer snart:) Med sol og klar himmel blir det kaldt også. Det var-17C den dagen jeg tok bildet.

This winter have been really cold I think. We've had not just days, but weeks with temperatures down to -20 C and lower. But you learn to live with it, put on lots of layers with clothes (wool) and heads out. On Thursday the sun finally peeked up over the mountain, for a few minutes. But those few minutes felt like heaven, brought out a smile and the winter didn't felt so long, cold and dark anymore. There's no warmth from her yet... But she makes promesis of spring soon :) With the sun and a clear sky comes the cold too. It was -17C the day I took the picture.

Snø dag / Snow day

Hoping for the sun to come out... She's behind those snowfilled clouds...

 Vi hadde håp om å se sola i dag... Hun er der bakom de snøtunge skyene.

We had hoped to see the sun today... She's there behind those snow filled clouds.

A few minutes after we hoped to see the sun...

Men skyene overmannet henne... Og noen minutter etter bildet ble tatt, lavet snøen ned igjen...
Det er begynt å klarne opp nå og værmeldingen ser lovende ut, så vi håper å få se henne i helga :)

But the clouds out numbered her... 
And a few minutes after I took the first picture, it started to snow again...
It's starting to clear up and the forcast looks good, so we're hoping to see her during the weekend :)

Feeding the birds

Endre har matet fuglene.

Endre has fed the birds.

Og lekt i snøen.
And played in the snow.
