Saying Thanks

Today is Thanksgiving. Last year for no reason at all, me and my friends decided to celebrate Thanksgiving. I threw a party and provided the turkey. Everyone else brought a plate, and boy we had enough food to turn the ten of us into zorbs. We had salads, yams with marshmallows, roast veggies, pumpkin pie and apple pie. Before we ate we went around the table and said thanks. It ended up being very special, so I have decided to make it a yearly tradition.

This year my class convinced the school kitchen to have a special Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. Can't wait to show Norwegains how good yam with marshmellos is!

So what am I thankful for this year?

All my new Norsk friends, and all my not so new Aussie friends. I am so lucky to have you all.

My almost empty box of chai tea from T2. A cup of chai makes the perfect accompaniment to a book on a dark, cold Norwegian winters night.

My library card. It lets me read books, and I don't have to pay a cent.

The never ending blocks of Norwegian brown cheese. So long as there is knekkebrød left.

Heated bathroom tiles, probably the best invention ev
