Life is slowly taking form again, after what happened here in Norway 22. July.
Like a rainbow, love is shining in my country, after the big massacre.
I am so happy the bombing and massacre did not let hate grow.
All the dead are now identified - also DD2's friend Åsta.
If feels so meaningless that you and all the other bomb and shooting massacre victims are gone, Åsta, and we are thinking and talking about you daily.
Your friends from school will travel this week, across the country, to attend your memorial service and funeral on Thursday. My thoughts goes to your family and friends!
We have had some lovely hot summer days, and we had the pleasure of taking DMIL to visit her sister. It was good to have a hat to cover the neck in the sun - DMIL's hat that is - I am not much of a hat head :-)
DH's aunt lives by the sea, on Jeløy, and the view is great. From the upstairs veranda we can see across the Oslo fjord. This day we sat downstairs by the grass.
and smelled the roses - they smelled sweet,
and the strawberries were the very best :-)
I have been spending quite a lot of time reading a thick novel this past week,
but the sewing needle have not rested either.
At first I did not like the middle block on the row 2, the one with yellow and a lot of white, but it has grown on me and I can see it adds to the quilt, even if it looks very pale.
First I decided to redo it later, but I now know I will not.
Only 2 more stars to go - and all the triangular pieces around the hexagons to make them square, or rather a tad rectangular.
Tomorrow is fresh, with no mistakes in it. ~L.M. Montgomery
