things I like lately

blurry vintage champagne glasses from Paris; a happy accident from the test roll shot with the flea market camera | Kodak Portra 400, Ricoh 35 EFL

- after a lot of procrastination and then a lot of hard work, I handed in my exam today - best way to start the weekend! 
- a gin & tonic to celebrate the exam (with Hendrick's gin - my favorite) 
- looking forward to finally getting a bike again (my last bike was stolen years ago) when we move to Stavanger and I'm thinking this one (via my friends Terese and Gabriel) might be an option
- this post by Teak Tray Weekdays
- this post by Holly/Decor8 (there are lots of interesting comments too)
- this post by A Beautiful Mess (via Samovaren)
- I made Stephanie's rhubarb syrup (unfortunately I made it a little too sweet, other than that it was delicious)
- this looks good
- seeing all my Flickr friends post their beautiful polaroids for 'RoidWeek2014
- taking breaks away from the computer whilst working on my exam
- roasted garlic
- seeing the old neighbour lady cut her husband's hair out in their backyard
- dinner leftovers for lunch: roasted vegetables, barley and a poached egg - the egg did it
- a beach tent like this seems like a good idea for our upcoming summer holiday in Mallorca (we already have a parasol, but it is always such a hassle securing it properly)
- two of my photos have been chosen for VSCO grid (here is my grid)
- my copy of Molly's Delancey just arrived - can't wait to dig in!
- I just finished Caroline Kaspara's second book, Du er meg for søvning - recommended! PS: check out her Instagram photos - beautiful!
- the news about the birth of my good friend J's baby boy
- the feeling when I have finished my run (twice this week!)
- making pancakes before 7 am (Sara watched an episode of Peppa Pig were they made pancakes, so requested pancakes for breakfast) 
- the rhododendrons in our garden are blooming, and the irises have just started blooming too 
- summer wild flowers are popping up everywhere; cow parsley, red clover, buttercups 
- a warm day that called for al fresco bath time for Sara and a drink at the sunset for her parents 
- looking forward to the annual 4-fjellsturen (4 mountains hike) on Sunday 
- akkurat nå: Heia Viva! Stem på gamlekoret mitt som synger i finalen i Norske Talenter på TV2: send 3 til 26400!

things I don't like lately

- I think we have a wasp nest in our garden somewhere; we constantly have wasps flying in our open windows
- running - so hard after nearly two months of no running
- three days of headaches - most likely due to cutting down on sugar (I have eaten embarrassing amounts lately) 
- shampoos and soaps that smell too much
