Back in the Saddle

Hi every(any)one....the weekend at Geilo was just what I needed-alittle get away from the crappy weather here on the coast. Why can't it (the weather) just be sunny and make everyone happy?  I seriously need a bunch of SOL (sun, in norwegian). The weather on Saturday turned out to be a blizzard, so instead of driving up, we had to take the train, as all the roads from east to west (an visa versa)were closed! Nothing like being holed up in a warm house with the fireplace going and a bottle of Amarone. We didn't have a clue about what to do about dinner, so we called a cab and ate at Hallingstuene....wonderful as usual.
The men worked all day Saturday, so the skiing got shoved further and further down the priority list, until it finally was too late, so-no skiing this weekend. A nice long walk to work up an appetite and a simple dinner was in order.
Now that tomorrow is a back-in-the-studio day, I wonder what I will come up with. After a hefty-weather weekend, I feel invigorated by the forces of nature. Snow, wind and cold temperatures/contrasted with huddling inside keeping the hearth warm...hummmmmm.
