Project 365; Day 5

Day 5 Out skiing

Out skiing with my dogs. Old, but very nice and sturdy skis! Eight years ago I was skiing with my oldest dog and using these, when going down a hill my skis hit a bit of exposed rock. A few scratches underneath, one broken collarbone, but the skis have been just fine skiing with even so. My trusty friends!

(This one and day 6 are being posted a bit late, I've just been so caught up with completely different things these past couple of days! But I've taken my pictures each day, even though they're not up till now. ;) )

Project 365; Day 6

Day 6 Øiegården

This is Øiegården, the house my grandparents own in the country side.I went there yesterday (as in January 6th) to check if the water had frozen in the pipes etc., and it looked so pretty I just had to take a picture of it. The house is about 200 years old, and it's been in the family all along. ("Øie" is the last name my family had when they settled there years and years ago, and "gården" means farm.) Oh yeah, and it's haunted! :)

Project 365; Day 8

Day 8 Getting stuck in snow

Managed to slide off the road today. Ugh. It was the first time something problematic happened to me while driving, and even though I've had my license since 2005 (getting my license in the States was awesome! ;) ), I've been actively driving since New Years Eve of 2006. That's three years without anything happening, so I guess I still have reason to be proud. But still... It's annoying! What's even worse is that my speed wasn't more than 10-15km/h (6-9mph), and to say I kept my eyes on the road would be an understatement.

...and it happened only 50 meters (54.5 yards) from our house and 15-20 meters (16-21 yards) from our driveway... *facedesk*
