We skipped spring and went straight for summer. Like we do every year.
Not long ago my kids stood by the window, looking out on the endless amounts of snow asking me when will there be summer, mum? I can't express how happy it makes me to finally see them running around in shorts, jumping on the trampoline, with sunscreen on. Scratching a scrape on the knee, spending all day outdoors. It warms my heart.
And the Midnight Sun, of course. It keeps us going, we sleep less - do more.
You should check out my 24/7 Daylight Crash Course from last year. Still runs this year!
The Norwegians are a funny kind. Two years ago we watched The Hurtigruten minute by minute on a coastal journey, on live tv for days. This winter the same National broadcaster showed eight hours live tv about wood, stacking it - burning it (yes, I watched it), where the last hours was only a fire burning and people could text in where to put the log next. This week a big newspaper made a world record of interviewing a well known authour and historican for 30 hours straight. I admit I watched just a few hours, as background while working. He talked about American Presidents for three hours too. But that was in the middle of the night.
Someone please research us.
Have a great week!
