Oh blog world how I’ve missed you!

I won’t bore you with my stories of 2 weeks of computer repair or internet failure, but rather just say that it’s easier for me to get out there and write when I’m regularly writing and it’s a lot harder once I stop.

The latest yarn release was a success and the yarn give away was won, thank you all for participating!

It was a lovely July up here, with a few cloudy days here and there. Check out this awesome video of our town-wide 4th of July celebration and see how much fun you can have in the rain.

And now July has turned to August I’m in full on preparations for my next adventure:
Our house is littered with maps and guidebooks and the sounds of me trying to learn the 10 letters of the Icleandic language that don’t exist in English. Let’s hope I’m a fast learner, because I leave in less than a week!
