Pretty as a picture

Frognerseteren 9.mai 09

Now isn't that a pretty decent view? On Saturday Mom brought me to the highest point the subway can take us. This is the view towards the city from the subway station.

...and in the other direction there's nothing but forests. From here you can go for miles in real wilderness either in summer or on skis during the winter.

This is the subway station. Isn't it pretty cute?

Uh oh.. do we really have to go all back up again afterwards? Sigh..

..and down this steep, rocky path..

Mom let me off leash since she needed her arms for balance. BOL! It's not allowed after April 1st and during summer - while the animals have young. Mom really do respect it, but since she knows I'm not going to go hunting no deer she thought it was fine for a little while.

Pug coming through!

You coming or what?

After this Mom put the camera away. We walked for about an hour - the last 30 minutes was all up hill.. Mom was panting like I pug. I swear!

So some good and some funny news: Mom passed her grammar (did we tell you allready) as expected, really, and she also passed her British Civilisation essay on the first attempt. She was very happy. It is possible to pass when handing it in the first time, but generally you need to revise it. So she was very pleased! And can put all her effort into reading philosophy and ethics for her first exam tomorrow! Yikes!

So the funny: Mom was at the dentist today and spent a fortune - she also came back out looking like a stroke patient after they sedated half her face. BOL! She had a yoghurt for breakfast drinking it through a straw. BOLBOL!
Hopefully, by lunch, she'll be able to chew without hurting herself! ;)

Bajas out!

Mom says she totally understands about dentists and their proceedures! They are not fun and much too costly! We hope your mom is able to eat her yogurt with a spoon for breakie today!

It looks like your walk was on top of the world! What a beautiful place. It must be great for you and your mum getting out to walk in new places.

Concatulations to your mum on her good results so far, and we wish her lots of luck on her next exams! We also hope she is feeling much better. The dentist can be rough!

Congrats to your mom! That is one less thing she has to worry about. That is such a beautiful area, around you. We are glad you had a good walk. Now time to study. I'd help, but I don't know any philosophy!
