Waffles are almost like a standard here. It’s amazing with sour cream and strawberry jam. ❤️
For Christmas I take out a lot of the old recipes and bake with those. There are heavy traditions here during Christmas. People usually bake 7 kinds of cakes/cookies. I have no idea why 7 is the magic number but.. yeah. It is. 😁 I usually have to have kokkosboller, sjakkruter, fattigmann, julekake and krumkake. 

I'm a (literally) huge fan of baked goods... seven sounds like a great number to me.  :O)   Lots of potato grating to be done, making lefse, as well.  My mom spent most of an afternoon making lefse with several other people here-- she loved to cook, but had no desire to start production on it at home, much as I implored.  I'll bet you're a great cook.  I like traditional foods.  And costume.  And music.  

Had a jar of cloudberries, many years ago.  As I recall, they were a bit sour but I enjoyed them for what they were.   Folks brought a bottle of aqavit (?) home from one of their trips, and we toasted a few times with it, but I  never got a taste for alcohol so it was kind of lost on me.  Interesting product, though.  Krumkake sounds familiar.  I sort of attack most foods like Cookie Monster does with cookies, so I've probably enjoyed a lot of things I can't recall in detail.

My favorite Norwegian artist is Kari Bremenes. She comes from a family of musicians and her brother sings too. I’ll link you 2 of my fav songs by her. 

I like this!  I think I even hear a little joikh in the first one.  She has a beautiful voice
and the language lends itself really well to this kind of melody.  Always love to discover
new tunes--- thanks!

I had a conversation yesterday about the the good stuff with Italy vs Norway. Italy is filled with stuff to do, history, castles and all that. Norway doesn’t have too much of that stuff to offer, some ofc. I think nature is Norway’s best card for sure. Today I was out with my aunt and our dogs. We saw a small herd of em, about 15-20. One of them was pure white. Beautiful ❤️

"Em" are... what... Sheep?  Reindeer?  Highly evolved lizards that enjoy complex equations?
My mind is racing.  

I'm happy to have met you.  I hate to think you're struggling with loneliness,
and I hope the coming winter doesn't make any of that worse for you.

Ahahaha. 😂 Moved too fast with that one. Lol.
A heard with reindeer. Hmm 🤔 the lizard thing would be pretty awesome though.
Akevitt (the alcohol thingy), I've tasted it but I'm not really a drinker. A cider once in a while is plenty enough for me so yeah. 
Been nice getting to know you Harper 😉
Lol. I got a orange kitten nibbling at my sweater now. Ahhh.. I love cats. ❤️
During winter it's pretty much dark 24/7. I don't really mind it. I like the seasonal changes. All of them brings something beautiful.

My desktop...  I'm still quite stoked about it; as I put in a good amount of effort to customize the theme and such.  *Yay* me!
