PALM POLLEN

Is there such a thing…? I have never been so snotty in years, and I know it is allergy!

One year ago I had my last pollen injection after being injected every six-week for the past three years, grass pollen in one arm and birch pollen in the other arm.

Before I signed up for this vaccination program spring and summer were filled with a lot of snot and sneeze. I always thought I had a chronicle cold during summer….until I somehow managed to go to a doctor and get the diagnose of pollen allergy confirmed and get some medicine. Kerastin, citiricine, telfast, zyrtec, aerus are some of the medicine I have tried to antidote my self with.

Then I somehow got into this vaccination program. And during these years I barely had to take allergy medicine.

But now I am as bad as ever! Blocked nose, runny, nose, red, wet, shiny eyes! Even by taking allergy medicine it won’t stop!

So I have come to this conclusion, it must be the palms here in France! As they don’t have birch trees here, it must be the palm trees…right??

HOW IS YOUR BURGER?

To day I have made burgers for dinner!

It always makes me laugh thinking of the hysterically funny movie «Dumb Dumber» with, one of my over all time favourite comedian actor, Jim Carry.

They sit in this burger shop and  have put lots of chilli on this guys burger and Harry asks in a very funny way «How’s your burger????» Hahahaha!

Cheeky 2 Cheeky 1

Hahahahahahahaha!!!

This is how my burger started out to-day:

BurgerMince meat, oregano, mint, basil, salt and pepper! The outsider meatball is for Lucas, no herbs in his shit…

Yo yo

I also baked in some cheese before I fried them in the pan!

So answer to my question will be: They tasted delicious, and I called them «Herb Burger»

I totally forgot to take a picture of the finished result…to hungry! Sorry…next time :-)

 

 

DEAR BLOG!

Dear blog!

I have not been able to write and post pictures as my life is a bit complicated and busy at the moment. And we have had great time with family visiting us in Antibes.

Catharina flew in from London first and stayed four days. All rainy and cold. She left and a few days later Tomas flew in from Norway. He spent 10 days in the easter with us.

Catta and me in Cannes! Drowned cats…..due to wet weather!!

In france they don’t have easter holiday like us Norwegians. During easter Lucas class went on a skiing trip for 12 days to Auron.

For you who don’t know, Lucas is now in french school. Very exiting and challenging. He is learning a third language now, and coping! 12 days only speaking french worked wonders for his french language learning curve:)

Anyway we were allowed to come and visit him on sunday, easter morning, so we drove up with Tomas to spend the day with Lucas.

Lucas and Tomas reunion in Auron!

SES&IWe drove the curvy road home when visiting hours were over at 16:15. And coming home Helena had arrived from London to spend 8 days with us.

Then they left one by one and only a few days later we are back home in Norway, due to Lucas «Spring Break» from the french school!

Well it is a busy life, but it is so much joy to be able to spend it living, traveling, learning, evolving, absorbing, reflecting and all in all developing and getting new experiences!

But don’t misunderstand me! Making decisions like we have, don’t come easy! And it is for sure not for everyone!

For now I just want to enjoy my stay in Norway!

Seems like the bad weather has cursed us. On the Riviera, it has not been a worse spring in 40 years, rain, rain, rain!! So don’t mention the weather, please! It is sunny and 18 degrees there now. And look what we brought with us home! Haha, be glad we are soon off again and hopefully we lose it over germany or something, haha!!!

I guess it has nothing to do with us, but it is a coincidence, though :) And by the way I actually like misty weather!

Here are som of my photo catch from my hometown Kristiansand, and one of the most popular places to go swimming and sun bathing in the summer, Bertes:

And now it is May 2 I wrote this post a while ago, but I never got to post it due to among other things crappy INTERNET connection :-/……. Anyway… what can I say…Time Flies for sure! See more updated photos and adventures on www.instagram.com/ihimberg
