I have had extra ordinary weekend. My uncle and cousin came to visit me from Norway- it's been 2 decades since I saw them both.
Living in America I feel such a sense of isolation from my family and Norway.
Some days I feel as if a modern day homesteader...trying to find my way in Montana without any relatives.
I have no brothers or sisters ...so every little bit of family counts for me.
These past few days has filled my heart and my soul.
We are already planning a trip to Norway next July to spend time with the clan.
While Norway was my home
Montana is my home.
Timely that I am reading Giants of the Earth by Ole Rolvaag
I couldn't get in Norwegian so reading it in English-
never the less it is a wonderful saga of a family homesteading in America from Norland, Norway in the 1800's
A women once said the book had changed her life..
well... with reading this and seeing my family it has certainly changed my perspective.
I am knitting a sock- a just a simple sock " Wendy toe up "...a favorite around here.
Joining Ginny for yarn along.
