SkyWatch Friday no. 55.

An afternoon last week I suddenly got aware of this thick bluegrey carpet all over the sky to the south, making a great view of the smoke from the cellulose factory in our nabourhood. Of course I had to catch it with my camera. This one is zoomed a little.

Today the weathercasting announced we would get 14 mm rain during the afternoon. And I think we must have got it, in a few portions. This is the first one, which I catched through my window. Not very often it rains that much in one day here!
Happy skywatch everyone!

Congratulations to my little brother Helge, 60 years old yesterday!

His four sisters with husbands came from Tromsø in the North to Denmark in the South to celebrate our dear, nice, handsome little-/big-brother, Helge - in his home in Oslo.

His dear wife, Anne, had made this gorgious and welltasting cake as well as the whole menu (assisted by her husband of course).

Thank you Helge and Anne for a memorable evening!!!!

SkyWatch Friday No. 52

A windy summer day at Tofte, Hurum (south in Oslofjorden) yesterday, taken with my husbands mobile phone, as we were aout for a swimming trip. The place is about 5 minute's drive from our new house. The view is against Vestfold across the fjord. The second picture shows a closed factory of wood chemistry (?). Still one factory remaining, as you see from the last picture taken some days earlier from our veranda to the South, with my Samsung S730.

SkyWatch Friday No. 51.

The last 1 1/2 week we had the most beautiful summer weather. These two pictures are taken on Nesodden (outside Oslo) some days ago, about 10.30 p.m. from my mother-in-law's veranda - after a nice swimming trip in Solbukta . We really enjoy this weather, not many days a year of it. We struggle a bit with the heat, so we have to go swimming!
