~ Celebrating 100 entries with Q&A ~

This is my 100th blog entry,
and in that context I decided to challenge myself by challenging you.

I am inviting YOU, whoever you are, to ask me questions! :D

I have thought about it before, but never dared making an invitation like this in fear of no one asking me anything. :3

So I have to admit that doing this is terrifying! But here we go:

If there is anything you would like to know about me, my blog, my life or anything else, but you've never found the right time to ask, you can do it now :)

I would also like to take the opportunity to ask you, dear readers, what you would like to see more of on this blog, and if you have some constructive criticism.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last but not least, I want to thank you so much for all the wonderful comments and love you grant me. I truly appreciate it! Bless you <3

~ Love and light ~

~ Mabon, Autumn Equinox 2014 ~

It's my favourite season again, and autumn equinox is here! It's time for celebrating and harvesting the fruits of Earth. I went out to the forest to see what nature might give me, not just objects, but also experiences. I had a relaxing, healing time, and I actually did recieve a few gifts from Mother Earth :) 

Look how strange, and rather disgusting - melted mushrooms!
And they were filled with nasty maggots too :o
*pokes with stick, and runs away in terror*

Look at these tiny strangies! :D

There are so many wonderful treasures in nature, especially now! Maybe there is no specific use for them, but it gives the experience extra magic, and makes it feel special :) I am very grateful, and I wish you all a wonderful night of Mabon!

<3

~ Mushroom hunt ~

I had a wonderful time in the forest today :) Last weekend I really wanted to go out to the forest to hunt mushrooms, and today I finally did.

I don't have the knowledge acquired to pick them for food, but I've always appreciated beautiful things! For as long as I can remember I've been utterly fascinated by mushrooms, and I guess I have to write more about some other time :) For now, I'll show you some of the foresty treasures I've seen today :)

Half a fairy ring right outside my house! :D

Very strange mushroom :o

A beautiful fly agaric :) It was more red than in the photo.

The light was beautiful!

Creature :p

Tall ones.

Tiny ones.

Big ones.

- Have you been out hunting mushrooms?
Do you recognize or know the name of any of them? :)

~ Outlander ~

I recently started watching the new series Outlander, and I'm in love! 

It's full of happy, scottish music, the amazing scottish highlands, woman in dresses, men in kilts, pagan traditions and time travel! :D

Claire looks like such a fairy, and Jamie is the dream man. And with the beautiful costumes it is just the perfect series for me :)

Now all I want to do is dress in knits and plaid of greys, blues and browns, and go out to the forest to do witchy stuff, like dance and gather herbs and mushrooms :3

- Have you seen it? :)

~ Gjallarstadir vikingmarked 2014 ~

This weekend I went to Gjallarstadir vikingmarked :) It is a nice and intimate little festival, but at the same time it's surprisingly big! It is the last historical festival of the year, and you can clearly see that the autumn has come upon us :)

The weather and temperatures are still summer-y, and I am so happy my favourite season has arrived :) 

- Did you do anything interesting this weekend? :)

~ Vegan carrot cake ~

For the Green Festival last weekend, I made a delicious vegan carrot cake :D I don't really have any cooking or baking skills, but this summer I've practised a little and made this carrot cake three times, so now I'm getting the hang of it ;) This photo is from the second time, when I attended Frøydis' birthday :)

The recipe is based on this one from Vegetarbloggen.

Ingredients

1 dl flaxseed
2 dl water
3 carrots or more
2 dl walnuts
2,5 dl sugar, sukrin or similar
1, 5 dl canola oil
1 table spoon of lemonjuice
1 tea spoon of vanillapowder, -extract or similar
3 dl flour
2 tea spoons of baking powder
2 tea spoons of cinnamon
1/2 tea spoon of salt

Preheat the owen at 180 degrees. Add the water to the flaxseeds. Cut the walnuts in a little food processor. Mix all the dry ingrediens together.  Cut the flaxseed mix in a little food processor. Add all the wet ingrediens to the flaxseed mix. Add the dry mix to the wet mix. Peel and grate the carrots and add to the mix. Put greaseproof paper in a cake tin mold, and pour the mix into it. Bake for about 45 minutes. Cool before you add the icing and some grated carrots, and tadaa :D 

I havent yet found the perfect icing, but I've experienced with tofu, soygurt, vanilla powder, lemonjuice and powdered sugar. Maybe a cashew cream would be perfect? I dare you to experiment yourself :D

- What is your favourite cake? :)

~ Green Festival, Hellviktangen 2014 ~

Last weekend I went to the second annual Green Festival at Hellviktangen, arranged by the Norwegian Green Party. I went with the Norwegian Vegan Society, and I had made carrot cake for the occation. :D It was great success, and in the end of the day, we were sold out of all our cakes, and we had got seven new members!

Can you see my carrot cake? ;)

Ingrid performed some of her lovely songs <3 (The Mermaid is my favourite :)

- Have you been to a green festival of some sort? :)

~ Wedding and a medieval church ~

The weekend before last, I attended the wedding of a childhood friend. It was in the old medieval church / viking chapel, Olavskapellet, which is placed in Norway's first capital, and one of our oldest cities, Sarpsborg. There was even a medieval garden, and I really liked the place! 

Middelalderhagen - the medieval garden :)

My charming sister <3

- Have you ever been to a wedding? :)

See my outfit here :)

~ Landart at Huk ~

Today my class went to the beach to make landart! :D

Each of the groups presented their art and the idea behind it, 
and we talked about how it can be used in work with children.
There were many creative ideas, and I am still very inspired :)

This one was my favourite <3 'Solblomsten'

My group was the last to show, and here it is:

We made a tiny beach landscape that reflected the surroundings.

Further, we made paths of sand, and created small spirals with different themes - one with mushrooms and one with a little bonfire. 

Mushrooms <3

The sandpaths was almost like waves of water, and it ended in a little waterfall of sea shells next to a tiny forest.

- Have you made landart before? What do you think? :)

~ Child-gardener ~

Some of you already know, and some have asked me what I am studying:

I am now studying to become a kindergarten teacher :D

Photo of my sister and me ca. 1995 <3

Like I've mentioned before I love children and would like to become a teacher one day, so this is my new path. I have more than two years experience of working in different kindergartens and schools, and it's so much fun working with children! <3

This study seems perfect for me, as it is full of subjects I love. So many fun, creative and emotional subjects, like art, drama and music, nature and health, and much more. What I look most forward to learn is how to become and be a good leader :)

Allthough my studies has just begun, and I am reading a lot and working on my first paper! How do you think a kindergarten should be? What do you think is the kindergarten teacher's most important job? I know I have a lot of opinions :)

I love the consept and idea of the child being a plant in the (kinder)garden, and that it grows, developes and hopefully blossoms with good care and nurture <3

At the same time I am critical to kindergartens, and I am yet to see one that has toys, food, buildings and playgrounds that I'll find healthy enough and good enough for the children, the teachers, the earth and the future.

So not only do I want to become a kindergarten teacher;
I want to create and start my own kindergarten :)

Tomorrow we are going to have an outdoor class to play and make landart! :D
And of course I'll take photos and share with you ;)

- Do you have experience with children?
Did you attended a kindergarten as a child?
Would you like to share a good childhood memory? :)
