Bits & Pieces

Another busy week! I am knackered, so I will let the pictures speak for now. I am about to curl up on the couch and do a little crochet and writing.

On Thursday I went to Lunch Beat with a co-worker. Lunch Beat is so great. You go out for your lunch break and dance for an hour. Definitely the best way to spend your lunch hour!

Bits & Pieces, 2 in 1

I didn’t get to update last week. So busy! So here you get two weeks worth of photos and short stories.
I am currently working through yet another busy season at work, and then the Christmas madness starts, then the end of a year and beginning of a new one. Fun fun!

Home made wool socks! Is there anything better in the cold weather? I think not. These pairs are both gifts from my very talented friend Ágústa. I have had them for 4 years and they are still like new!

Bits & Pieces

This past week was one of the strangest ones in a while. In both a good way and a bad way. I have been very tired, yet energetic, full of ideas but not doing much to get these ideas out of my head. I am sure they will come sooner rather than later.
I finished this week by going to my grandfathers cabin in the country with my parents, daughters and my little nephew Adrían. Here are some pictures.

Happy #halloween
Karítas on Halloween. They did face paint at school.

#lunchbeat #reykjavik #iceland
On Thursday I went out for lunch and when I was going back to the office I walked by this. Lunch Beat. Once a month between 12 and 13 and you go and dance your ass off and then head back to work. I was only there for about 15 minutes, but it was wonderful! I will definitely not miss it next time!

Karítas watching her first #airwaves show. #offvenue #kaffibarinn #bedroomcommunity
Iceland Airwaves started Wednesday and finishes tonight. This is the second time since it started that I miss it. I did go to the off venue concerts at Kaffibarinn on Thursday with my daughter Karítas. Her father works for Bedroom Community so we listened to some of their music for a while and met up with some friends.

#kría #crochet #shawl #þóraheklbók
New crochet start. Shawl called Kría from Þóra, heklbók. I am using Einband from Ístex and the multi colored one is something that I dyed myself a few years ago.
