When snowstorm and absense of sunlight…

I said I was going to take more photos today. When I left work today it snowed so badly and the sun was not present. I was not propperly dressed (tunika and stalkings). So I soon realised I had to drop my planned phototrip.

Instead I went downtown to buy some groceries and things I needed to make cupcakes in particular. When I came to the street where I live, I decided to pop the camera out of my purse and document the snowing. The picture above is taken from one end of the street where I live. I love my street. So quite and away from the heavy trafic nearby.

I got a few different shots of a tree nearby too.  I really like photos of branches against (blue) sky.

These are somewhat dark and mysterious. I like that.

So since the photowalk didn’t happen, I made cupcakes instead. You see, me and my colleague Gøril, we play card every lunch break. It’s such a nice thing to do, to relax and not think about what to do next. We play Gin Rummy. Just to add a little fun, we have statisitics. We note down who wins every game. After 50 games, we count all the wins and see who scored the most points. Whoever loses, have to bake something and bring it to work.

As you see, losing isn’t the worst thing that can happen! But still, we fight both of us to not lose. It’s a bit of prestige in it all.

What is the best of all, is to see all colleagues drool over what we bring; weather it’s chocolate cake or cupcakes. There is always someone who wants a piece. The rule is clear, the one who wins decides if someone is getting something or not. But no matter what, no one is getting anything before we are done eating! The last time I’ve baked, I’ve baked cupcakes and only brought enough for the two of us. And when someone ask for a piece I say: ‘Did you play with us? No? Oh well, NO cake for you’. And then I put on my brightest smile. Evil? That might be. But I’m fully enjoying it. muwhaha.

So these are todays chocolate cupcakes. Well, not all but some fo them. I made 15 in total. These 7 I will bring to the office.

I did a little twist with the frosting this time. I didn’t use icing sugar mixed with water and color this time. I used a delicious chocolate frosting, that I normally use on my chocolate cakes.

Nom, nom, nom.

I’m alive

Hello there. I know, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything to flickr too. There is only one reason to that: CSI NY!

Yep, what you read is true. Crime Scene Investigatin: New York is the reason. Odd you might think. It sort of is I assume. I get this periods where I get hooked on something. And when it’s ongoing it’s intense. Like it has bee now.

After New Year I started to watch CSI: N.Y. which is on every wednesday. It’s season 6. I started to watch episode 4 or was it 5. Doesn’t matter. I didn’t catch the first episodes of the season and wanted to watch them. After some work I got hold of the 12 first episodes of season 6 and I was hooked! I also got hold of season 5. So after finishing the 12 episodes of season 6, I saw the whole season 5.

I’ve seen 37 episode of a timespan of 11 days. Whaha. It’s ridicoulus, I know. It’s like 3 episodes a day. It’s been so bad that I’ve dreamt about this. Not CSI in particular, but crime scene investigations. I’m crazy! Well… we all knew that already!

You can understand why I haven’t had time to blog or post many pics on flickr, can’t you?

Yesterday, when turning off the lights and waiting for sleep to catch me, I was thinking about the fact that I need to let some creativity back into my life again.  So I decided to bring my camera to work and take some pics after work ended at 16.00.

Here is the result:

A beautiful tree.

A VW with a beautiful blue color and a cat sticker in its headlight.

Barb wire. Oh the grain.

This bird reminded me of Twitter. haha. Love the colors!

I haven’t planned to stop with today. Tomorrow is a new day and I’m bringing my camera tomorrow too. I will walk in a different area and see if I can get some other cool shots. Lets hope there will be some sunlight tomorrow too.

Before the week is over, I have to make mum a card since it’s Mother’s Day here in Norway on sunday. And I would like to finish the wedding card I’ve started who Linda is giving to a her boyfriends sister and husband to come.

I also might do some fun foodshots. We’ll see how much time I got.

No more posts.
