Nature is one of the most underutilized treasures in life. It has the power to unburden hearts and reconnect to that inner place of peace ~ Janice Anderson
When weather forecast predicts a couple of hours of sunshine before a rainy week then the only smart choice is to go out and be in nature. I am presenting some of such precious moments.
To walk in nature is to witness a thousand miracles ~Mary Davis
July is the month of midnight sun in Norway. Due to the high mountains we do not experience the fantastic view of sunset – sunrise but anyways it doesn’t get dark at night in late june and july.
Here are some images from our late night walk along the river yesterday. It was very warm during day but extremely pleasant at night 😀
How are you spending your weekend?
For Jo’s Monday walk
These days my work keeps me busy for more than necessary and besides the working hours are just 7 a day as we follow summer time schedule.
Yesterday I decided to take it easy and attended a farewell lunch party for a colleague and spent my evening laughing with jolly good friends. I could not stay late with the gang as I was supposed to take a morning flight 😀 . Travelling early morning means packing the bag before going to bed and the result, I forgot my sunglasses and temperature today is +25.
I have shared a clip from my journey in history on my instagram account. I think one needs an instagram account to see it. Link to my page is
Sorry for not able to visit your blog. I shall do it soon.
The above image of oriental turtle dove was taken at TianTan Buddha in Hong Kong.
I am enjoying the rest of the Sunday silently by listening to this divine music, hindustani classical by pandit (master) Prabhakar Karekar.
Wander without a reason or purpose.
This is a tested recipe. Good for everyone. Just try it.

Roses in Madrid!
I am on my way to Madrid.
Recently I have posted various daffodils but taken in past years. Tomorrow I am planning to visit the arboretum to see how the flowers are coming up. We are enjoying sun for last two days.
I got very busy today and after working for 6 straight hours I decided to go on hiking 😀 . I know for some it might sounds crazy but for us it’s quite natural. When the weather is good we love to be outside. When in Rome ++.
I wanted to enjoy sun but not interested in stairs, so hiked (one way) around 7.5 km and up to elevation 568 m (8.5% inclination). Up on the mountains it was fantastic. There were people but not crowded, not like weekends. I found a nice bench and read a few pages from “Cider with Rosie”, relaxed for about 20 min then came back. Now I am tired.
It’s time for yoga stretches and a good sleep. Will check the comments and blogs tomorrow.
Have a fantastic weekend.
