With so much muddling of facts. Rational political conversations are scarcely possible.
For sake of old freindships, I put myself on silent mode.
And spend my time to appreciate creativity in art and beauty.
Knowing our strength is not impossible. ~Six word Saturday
Yesterday was a fantastic day, we achieved something great. It was last sunny day before a wet week so we decided to go on hiking. It was a day tour and we hiked up to 919 m above sea level while covering 17.5 km distance in total.
At home we are working on our “terrace”. Terrace decking is finished and painting is going on but we didn’t want to miss the hiking opportunity. We didn’t have a lot of rain in last couple of days so the mountain trail was perfect for hiking. The route was well marked (which means one has to keep eye on wooden stumps, trees, and even the stones in the forest). There were some wet places but managed them in good way. Just that our shoes need good washing 😂😂😂
And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling. ~Shanti
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.~ Rachel Carson

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. ~Wayne Dyer.
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. ~Henry David Thoreau.
Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. ~John Wooden
The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way. ~
Walking in surroundings is included in our daily routine now. I picked a couple of images from our walk last week.
Flowers are blooming everywhere here and almost every house has beautiful display. A couple of days ago we took a short walk to appreciate gardens in our neighbourhood.
Our town walk was concluded with coffee and cake. No rains and wind and even the temperature was just perfect resulting lot of people outside. Gladly it was convenient to maintain social distancing while seating outside. July is vacation month in Norway but our borders are still closed and moreover this year people are adviced to spend their vacations in Norway. Hope this will help local business which rely mostly on tourists.
