Communication

I am feeling SO connected way over here across the pond. No, seriously, with Facebook, email, Skype, Facetime, and Instagram, I have all sorts of ways to communicate with our kiddoes and friends. Funny though, during the day when we are active (well, me, sort-of, depending on the hour), most of our ‘people’ are either just waking up or still at work. We are thinking of heading to bed, most of our friends are just winding up for visiting. During the middle of the night, when both of us have still been waking up, we check our email/Facebook/GF Herald website, and, more than likely, there is more news.

Of course, we are rather ‘off the grid’ when it comes to our phone. Yes, we have a cell phone, and it works. In fact, just today I sent a text just to test it out! But, so few people actually know our number that it’s awfully quiet around here. But we actually don’t mind that at all.

And as far as communication in person? We have had opportunities to visit with friends outside of Paul’s work. I plan on getting together for coffee with friends while he is at work, but am unsure if people meet at a cafe or konditori for coffee or rather in one’s home. The endless cup of coffee is not common here, I have noticed. I’ll need to research this.

Now, for a few random photos I’ve taken this week:

The shrimp which a lady at the grocery store told me to buy. They were tedious to de-shell, and I ended up with a small pile of small shrimp. Next time I'm buying the container of already-shelled ones.

  1. Mange tusen tuck for all the nice info. I can’t properly spell the Norwegian words like you are learning to do. Your rosy cheeks coming back from market make you look like a native

  2. Thanks for the note, Cindy! My rosy cheeks had been the bane of my existence for years growing up–‘tomato face’, I believe was one of my monikers. I’m glad if they seem to make me fit in a bit here. 🙂
