Another Roadside Attraction - Falconara/Senigallia

Hello! I am partecipating at this drawing challenge over at My Paraphernalia ! The theme is Another Roadside Attraction.. Sorry about the quality, but I have a sick baby at home with high fever (I wonder if its Chickenpox? ) and a big need to be hugged all day.. But I found this theme very interesting, so this is my contribution. Take a look here for a list of the other contributors...!

Blogs I love...

Bilde lånt av A Foreigner in Italy

Today I would like to share this post from a lovely norwegian lady living in Italy. She writes so well about..well the opposite of what I do here. I found this post so funny because I was a bit of a strange lady in Italy too, just because I am half norwegian and I have always loved to walk (and still do) and to do all the other norwegian things that people thought were strange...including the refleks thing!

Take a look at A Foreigner in Italy!

PS. Soon my contributions to Demie - Another Roadside Attraction theme!

Five things....

Hello!

Thanks my friends for the kind words on my previous post...! It really helps to know that a) I am not alone in this b) it will get better!

So I was reading Lises blog and she wrote this post about how we are so good at telling ourselves the things we are NOT good at...and she challenged us to write down 5 things we are good at instead.
I found it so difficult...I know a lot of things I am maybe a little good at...but does "really good at appreciate the bad weather" count? haha. I found 3 things. Working on the last two. Not bad I think, being in the mood I am (but I am getting better)! What about you? What are you good at?

Hello!


Hello!
How are you doing?
I am doing just fine. Ok I will tell you the truth.
I am not doing so well.
I tought it was the january blues. But it snowed and I love snow! And that didnt help.
There are a lot of I in this post.
I am sorry.
You guys who are scared of things like feelings, and real people, and just want people to smile and say Det går bare bra! (I am fine!) all the time, you are welcome here another time.

Whats wrong? Nothing is wrong, and yet. Nothing is right.
I just learned that this is just me. I am funny, and nice and creative. Sometimes.
Other times I am a little worm, trying to go on, one day at the time. Hoping and knowing that the sun will shine again. But not now. But I do things, I work, I do everything that is required.

But i am gonna share some other things, the things that make me feel better.

Love

xxx

La Befana!

Today is La Befana
(the epiphany)

And old children song goes like this:

La Befana vien di notte
con le scarpe tutte rotte
col berretto alla romana
VIVA VIVA LA BEFANA!
(use google translate to read it in english + a good laugh)

So its a holiday in Italy, but not here in Norway! And nobody gave me candy today...! Outrageous! ;)
Don`t you think we should introduce LA BEFANA to Norway? Yes, another excuse to

1) Wait with the new years diet/eat healthy thing
2) Eat candy (see 1)
3) Don`t work
