Extended lunch - Running to Hølands Varde

October 30th, 2015

Today Espen and I took an extended lunch and went for a run to Hølands Varde. Did track the run using Sportstracker. Espen struggeling through the scree

Could this be it? But no, we had to search even more.

Finally we found it and here Espen is standing next to Hølands Varde (Hølands Cairn). Not much, but back in the old days it was open here, a fire tower and view all around.

Rainbow above the kindergarten

October 29th, 2015

From the 17'th of October. Should have had a camera with a fisheye lens since it did cover the whole house, but only having my phone and its camera, this was what I could manage.

Preparing security options

My laptop suddenly freeezed on Friday, stuck showing "Preparing security options" and making a repeating noise. Had to force a restart, other than that no issues.

Season over (almost)

October 16th, 2015

The rear tyre two days ago

Not good to combine with temperatures below freezing point, actually not good to combine with wet roads either.

Removing old sins

October 3rd, 2015

Two barrels of waste oil hidden under our barn. I managed to move them just outside in order to get the pump pipe down into them. About 1000 rounds for each barrel to emtpy them. Now just have to call the waste oil company to come and get it. Actually, we get money for handing in waste oil, so it is a win-win for both us and the environment.

Fish leaping out of water between grain

October 3rd, 2015

Picture taken on the 20'th of September, down by "Øya" where the kids at Løken primary school are spending time during their outdoor days. We took a trip down there together with Siri and my father. The field was flooded and while there my father saw a fish leaping out of the water in between the grain.

Old cars

October 1st, 2015

Elin's uncle Jørgen and his Volvo PV, the picture made me think of the song Old Man by Neil Young...

....Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don't get lost.
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you...

The Volvo has not been tossed, and it is still rolling...

And here is another car that has not been tossed, the old truck that used to belong to Elin's father, now to Elin's uncle. He was sick today, so me and my father in-law had to drive it to Bjørkelangen to deliver grain at the mill

Yesterday while driving by Løken I saw this combined harvester working on a field where it has been a flood. Driving from Hemnes I thought it was a fire at Løken, but it was not.
