17 Mai and long weekend

I knew there was no hope that I would actually manage to get any work done on the first sunny weekend we've had in a while so we bought some lumber and a couple of plants, and we built ourselves a flower box. It turned out really nice. We bought a raspberry plant to have in it, I planted my half grown green pepper, Marius added some raddish seeds, there was a daisy that we transplanted, and a yellow flower (I forgot the name) that can hold up to winter. I also rearranged the flowerbed against the wall of our building and put the daffodils in a row, and two more winter-hardy flowers. Our yard looks really nice now. Knut also came over for some BBQ that evening.

This morning I woke up at 6:30 with a sore back, so at 7:30 I was ready to do something. I convinced Marius to wake up and go for a hike up Ulriken with me. When we got to the top we enjoyed some coffee, bananas, and pastry that Marius made last week. The summer-like spring weekend was great! Now only 11 days until my thesis is due!!
