Goodbye July

High on caffeine, that’s what I am right now.
In a planning mode also. Just made a July plan and put up on a wall (It’s called procrastinating kids… I’m the queen of it)
I’ve finally completely decided the topic for my BA thesis and first draft is due at the end of July. And I haven’t written a word yet! So you know what I’ll be doing in July. Along with working quite a lot. And I’m also going camping one weekend and I really wanted to go to my beloved hometown some weekend in July . I also need to do a lot of running!
July hasn’t even started and I already feel that it is too short!
I don’t have to sleep in July do I?
Breathe…

Wednesday Addams

Today was a good day for some unknown reason. I did everything with a smile. Or a slight smile at least; dishwashing, essay writing, working. Nothing annoyed me today.
And I felt spring today. Which is too early and kind of stupid. But although it was raining a bit it was just so nice and warm outside today and the snow has disappeared. Still, knowing the country I live in there will probably be snow and minus degrees next week. Wouldn’t surprise me.


Ahh. Summer. Summer colours. Taken last august on a beautiful day.

One more thing. Best friend is turning 25 on friday and I’m frantically searching for a good gift for her. Why do I always have to do everything last minute? Anyway, I don’t know what to give her.

The tourist

Today I have the day off (and tomorrow too actually) and with most of my friends and family out of town I had to entertain myself alone. So I decided to be a tourist in Reykjavik. The weather is great so I jumped on my bike and headed downtown. There I went to two museums I have never been to, visited the biggest church in Iceland, walked around, had coffee and enjoyed the weather. A lovely day.

Einar Jonsson museum – where I saw a lot of amazing sculptures

I liked the house as much as the sculptures. It’s old and beautiful and designed by the sculptor himself.
The other place I went to was the national gallery of Iceland. Interesting too. And actually quite funny that I’ve never been to either of these places.
It was fun being a tourist. At work I so often envy the tourists that come by. I love walking around a new place with a map in hand discovering new places. I didn’t need a map today but I certainly saw something new! 🙂 And maybe, maybe I will be a real tourist in September…

August! And strange things

I just realised it’s August. Where did the summer go! And it’s dark outside, the bright summer nights are gone. Fortunately I like the dark, but still, It’s sad that there will be no more bright summer nights this year. The summer months seem to go faster by than other months. Very strange.

I visited my friend Anna tonight. She is 30 weeks pregnant now and suddenly has a big belly! I poked her belly and I could feel the baby’s head. I find it seriously freakish that she has a human being inside of her. Freakish I say! But I’m excited, she is the first of my friends to have a baby. And she even got married last year. I guess you’re grown up when your friends start doing all these things..

Camping trip

Nice weather, beautiful country, awesome friends, lots of laughing. Fun!

We stuffed the Volvo. There was almost no room for us! We picnicked. Put up our tent at a beautiful place. We played cards. Attempted to grill some hot dogs. Failed at grilling hot dogs… Boiled hot dogs.

Today is the last day at work before my four day weekend. I love that! Tonight I’m going to my hometown and I’ll be there for two days and then I’m going on a camping trip with friends. Fun fun fun. Although I’m not a big fan of sleeping in tents I admit. But once a year is ok.
And now I have to run. To work!

A night in July

I know I’ve said it before but I have to say it again… Icelandic summer evenings and nights are the best. Right now the weather is amazing, it has been a lovely day. It is almost 1 am and it’s bright outside. I just came in from a walk downtown with friends.  But I have to go to sleep now! Have to be at work in about 7 hours! It seems kind of a waste spending this night sleeping!
