Today, I am sharing another peek out of my kitchen window with you.
You can probably imagine the noise. Distracting, disturbing - not even the coffee break with one or two rows yoga-knitting on my Pomi socks is fun right now.
I wouldn't bore you with another construction site picture if it wouldn't be for the Project Spectrum coherence.
How funny: two huge orange service cars from 'Iceland Telecom' (their corporate colours are usually blue and white). Where have they been when we had trouble and were not connected for 15 days!
There is not much progress on the yarn front these days (see above reasons). So I am only half disstressed as I would be under normal conditions. Because? My new camera is broken! Well, new like in 'Christmas gift 2005'. And broken like in 'if my period of warranty has run out I can throw it
Okay, eventhough the two of us have to part for a long time (shipping it to Canon Support) or forever, this place is not doomed to be pictureless.
First piece of evidence is artsy picture below that hints towards my card project for the Project Spectrum Postcard Swap.
If you are NOT my swap partner for April then feel free to click on the picture for the card. Except you are a real buddy and want to keep the suspense until the card arrives at my swapee.
Since I regard my already taken but yet unpublished pictures as kind of a stash all over sudden, I have to point out this for you.
Amanda from clothesknit.com finally came to her senses and about-faced from the self-torturing idea to reduce one's stash (Sock Yarn Addicts Club). Instead she frowardly encourages us all to celebrate our stash as shown above. Very cool! Go there and add some more to the list of reasons to embrace your stash.
But now to my picture stash. Last week, actually on the 'first day of summer', I undertook the adventure of going on a cycle tour in Iceland. I know, there are people who seem to enjoy it so much that they spend entire holidays on such a
It seems to me that the choice of cycle paths ranges between these two extrems
- good roads = high traffic, including monster trucks where the driver is that used to his self-claimed right of way that I don't want to mess around with these guys on a bike.
- bad roads = no traffic, but: literally rocks to knock over. And while glanzing at the ground before your front tire, it is impossible to enjoy the natural scenery.
Wind, check. Storm, check. Hurricane, check.
Rain, check. Hail, check. Snow, check.
(Add the wind classifications again to the snow and you get the picture!)
Just yesterday, we woke up to gaze at 5 cm of fresh snow in the morning. In the afternoon, due to mild wind and 'burning' sunshine all had melted and the neighbour's children were playing 'picknick and camping' in the garden. In the evening there was a thick layer of snow again. What's wrong with this island? It's officially summer now!
