Onion & Carrot Soup

Fry an onion, a bunch of spring onions, two leeks and 5 cloves of garlic in good olive or canola oil on low heat until tender. Add a broccoli, enough carrots to fill the casserole, some curry and vegetable stock. Boil until tender. Add precooked white beans. Puree with a blander. Makes a nice yellow soup with an energetic taste. Enjoy!

What Not to Do?

And then I may have become a purist. The weekend has been wonderful, Tønsberg and good friends, long walks, a touch of spring, discussions and sun, but also a feeling of life changing. Of course it does, but it still feels like a surprise. Silly, as change is the only thing I think I can count on.

Anyway, my friend is a master chef, but she cooks meat. I know now I can't eat meat, it contributes to too much suffering and the wrong use of resources. Other people must do what they want, but I can't. As long as I have a choice, I will try my best to avoid meat consumption. My body does not like diary and sugar either, so that pretty much sums it up. It has been educational. Thankfully my friends respect my choices. They are a wonderful bunch.

Shopping Hiatus

I'm trying to get everything sorted. My wardrobe is in all right order, the flat in fairly good shape. Soon it will be possible just to buy food, take ballet class and get supplies for the guinea pigs, work and study. The clutter has been endless and I've spent almost a year sorting it out - on and off that is. The attic still needs attention, but now I have what I need; a house in all right shape, excess clothes and supplies have been given away. It has been an interesting process. I've learnt a lot about what I'm willing to do as well - for myself and in my line of work. House cleaning can be strangely interesting.

Lens Bug

I'm trying to do some serious (?) planning here and someone jumps in front of my camera :D

Photo Credit

Sorry, earlier on I posted a photo with an incorrect photo credit. I thought it had been taken by a friend who takes endless pictures of ducks - lovely ones too, but this one was taken by a Norwegian journalist whose name escapes me. Sorry, for not checking more thoroughly.

Today I think I'd like a

pacific island. Possibly delivered at my door.

"When I visited him for the first time, and it was in winter and extremely cold, I found him in a dimly lit, damp, unheated little room; he was sitting wrapped up in an old, threadbare dressing-gown, freezing with cold,
