It’s the weekend again and I’m so pleased to have several days free from work to do as I please- I function best when I can do whatever I want whenever I want. I am a Sagitarious to the bone…
It’s wet though…so whatever can we do when the weather is like it is? It’s not only wet but gloomy looking, if I didn’t have dogs who needed out I think I’d bake all day….my dogs are probably saving my arse from growing even bigger- bless the little fur balls.
Sarah is sick, can barely talk and feels miserable. So our activities will be limited somewhat because we are one person down and need all the help we can get with so many four legged fur balls walking around here…
I have to say I’m glad that I didn’t come across as morbid as I thought you’d think of me when I said I had gotten my flower shots in the cemetary at the local church. I was a bit worried what you’d think of me after I wrote that…Norway has a lot of churches…funny thing is they hardly ever go to church unless there is some big event like a baptism or wedding. A lot of the churches are old and I think about how important the church probably was once upon a time and how many went to church before as a place of social interaction and not just worship. This local church at Nes is a simple church but pretty in it’s own way. It overlooks the Mjøsa lake.
It was one of those wet and gloomy days so sorry for such a dark photo but I tried to lighten it up as much as I could without ruining the photo.
As I was walking around the cemetary I noticed this arrangement of headstones…do you suppose these people knew each other in real life? Perhaps they met like this when they were alive and stated in their wills that they would like to be placed in a circle after death? Certainly interesting the way they were all placed and some of the headstones do not look mounted into the ground but rather just laying against the wall.
I was wondering if any expats out there think about when they die, where they want to be buried? Would you want to go back to the states and be buried near a family plot and expect that your husband/wife will be buried near you or would you expect that if you live in Europe you’ll be buried in Europe? I am not planning on going anywhere anytime soon but it’s a thought that has creaped into my head especially since my mom passed away and wished to be buried in Pennsylvania near her father. My Dad is in Texas but will someday be buried near my mom..it just got me thinking, where do I want to be when my time comes and considering I live here in Europe.
Well, on that gloomy thought I’ll leave you…tomorrow the exciting conclusion to the question…”what did Amy do on her wet and gloomy Saturday?” Stay tuned my friends and have a wonderful Saturday!! :-))
