By now I am sure you’re all expecting that we are finishing up the last small details of the wedding and can take some well deserved summer vacation before the wedding. Or you know me well enough to know that I usually take on too much and finish projects just in time. I guess it is no surprise then that after this work weekend was finished we still had not finished the floor.. BUT we did get pretty far and during the week afterwards we got some extra help from some friends of Eli’s parents that finished the last 40% or so of the floor. So yay! The floor is done! And yes.. I know that most people start planning a wedding with a finished floor, but I guess the rest are just minor details right?

Tore, Else and Geir joined Eli, Ada, Nova and me for the drive to Geiranger and we had to stop and take som touristy pictures on the way up, look snow!

Gry Synnøve, Kjetil, Hanne Beate, Ylva, Marit and Nils Roger were already there as we got picked up in Geiranger by Nils Roger. This was a shorter stay than last weekend as we only had Saturday and Sunday to get work done. And get work done we did. Nils Roger spent the entire weekend cutting the grass around Matvika while dad and I tried to put done as much flooring as possible. Gry Synnøve, Kjetil and Tore managed to both make a new pathway to the outdoor urinal and make a new floor in the cellar entrance. Marit and mom continued planning for the wedding day as well as preparing all the small things that also need to be finished together with Hanne Beate and Eli. I think I have forgotten how it is to stay in Matvika without working now, but you do sleep like a baby, untill 05:30 when the actual baby wakes up. But yes, we did some amazing amount of work this weekend and I again have to thank everyone for their immense contribution and help! Eli and I are slowly coming to realize that we are actually going to have a wedding soon and that we actually might even make it in time!
