WELCOME TO SCHIMJOLIE & Le Petite Country Shop – Studio & Gallery

It has been a long time since last blog post, and it’s not because nothing has happened 😉 Too much has happened, but I will not go on about that now!

I would like to tell you about my day to-day! I’m sooooo excited!

I have cleared out the garage at Strai and me and Svein Eriks new «baby» SchimJolie LifeStyleConcept is about to open a place for the public!

I can’t wait. And with our tempo it’s no reason to wait! I think next week we are up and running! WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!

Everyone is welcome to see us and the Ltd #artscarf collection!

I might also take up my commercial photography and do some children and family portraits if anybody is interested?

Next to SchimJolie – Petite Country Shop I already have the most amazing flower and garden outlet «Drømmehaven» run by the sweetest and so friendly Kristin. She came with coffee to me as I was way down in all the crap and rubbish stored over many years in these three garages we cleared today!

Tomorrow I will paint the joint and then I will start decorating! Come and visit if you have the chance. I’ll bring the coffee machine tomorrow and there is always time for a chat!

The place will not be perfect at first but, but I need to get going and to get started, so I don’t worry, we’ll work it out as we move!

Life is too short to care about trifles 🙂 JUST DO IT!

So see you at Strai and at SchimJolie – Petite Country Shop – Studio & Gallery!

WELCOME – BIENVENUE – 歓迎

It’s only 10min by car from the center! Just saying!

Here are som photos of today’s progress 🙂

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

 

 

STUNNING STRAI

For the time beeing I’m a very bad blogger. It’s not that nothing happens – too much is happening!

I have been in Norway for the last nearly two weeks, being busy meeting with family and friends.

We went to see family at Strai.

This is where my boyfriend grew up. On these field he ran in his, as we say in Norway, «childshooes», I think he rode the sheeps and what do I know??

It is a beautiful place as you can see from these two photos.

Hopefully I have some more time on hand next week. I have lots of photos to share and things to write about. So don’t give up on me 🙂

I’ll be BACK!!

In the mean time TUDELUUUU
