Kicking the road

 
21st of December and the darkest day of the whole year. Not that I can tell any difference from yesterday, but we get about an hour and a half of daylight now.

Luckily the snow makes it much lighter, and I love, love the blue lightning.


 

Look what we finally got hold of: Don't have the slightest idea what it might be called in English - but in Norwegian it's Spark, meaning Kick. I know this brilliant thing also exists in Finland, since the second one we bought is made there.

The Kick is a:

* Chair
* Vehicle
* Sleigh
* Something to hang your grocery bag on

The four of us is now ready to kick the roads like a cadillac on snow.


 
I'm so happy that my daughters can wear the hat I had as a child. It's from reindeer fur, made by sami crafters. You can see the beautiful ornaments in the typical colours for the sami culture; red, yellow, blue and green.



 
I promised my girlfriends I'd post this photo of them from Saturday's night in. Laughing with your best friends should be on prescription. Giggling, eating, dancing, drinking and joking for a whole night can never be overestimated. No subjects are left untouched.

Even though cleaning the kitchen cupboards for Christmas was a bit heavy the next day.


I wish you all a great Christmas. I'll see you around soon!

Love the hat your daughter wears. I don't think I could survive with only 1-1/2 hours of sunlight. Australians at the minimum, even in winter get 8 hours!!! But girlfriends partying, celebrating and laughting I totally understand

Hi from Finnish Lapland! Yes, we have these, Potkukelkka in Finland.. and in English it translates a Kicksled. Great aren't they? Especially useful for really icy days! Love Michelle.
