"Whatever your hands find to do, verily do it with all your might" Ecclesiastes 9-10

YESS ! It's done, it's settled, it's blocked on the agendas : I'm going to visit May Britt for a whole week, from January 31st to February 8th, 2008 !

Isn't that exciting ? We were talking about that for a few months. It started with the usual "some day...", then went on with "yes, but when ?...", and now 18.799 emails later, it's a deal.

You know how May Britt can organize things to the best :

-I'm going to rest at the best hotel in Norway : her home. (Oh, my Goodness, the giggles !),
- She has planned a weekend class, with a famous Norwegian quilter.... and has booked a ticket for me, as well, with everything arranged for translation and the quilt shop lending me a sewing machine (Oh, my Goodness, what will they think of me when they realize I get totally stupid in front of these "robots!),
- And of course, she told all her friends how crazy, silly and clowny I am ( Oh, my Goodness, and I desperately planned to look classy, distinguished, elegant... everything but me !),
- I think I'll meet some of our Blogging friends, also :Laïla (Jacobs Quilt), Hanne (Hanne's Quilt Corner), and of course May Britt's local quilt Group. (Oh, my Goodness, I absolutely HAVE TO lose some weight !)...

Now, let me tell you, my friends that I'm taking this opportunity as a big gift of life. From the moment the whole thing was settled, I'm reading about Norway, talking about Norway, (and sometimes dreaming about Norwegians ! LOL LOL).
This will be my very first trip "all by myself" since my marriage (seems that the big "little girl" is growing !), and the first time I 'll take the plane for 25 years (Oh, my Goodness, I have to start some Yoga/relaxation lessons...).

I'll stop here, as I have to check some thick coats and pullovers in my latest winter catalog LOL ....(-25°C , can you imagine ?)...

- the unexpected gifts of life,
- Norway,
- Norwegians,
- planes (I'm sea sick)
- warm coats and boots
The road to a friend's home is never long
