one hundred and forty one

Tired start to what will hopefully be a good day. Still in morning grumpy mood. Very chilly. Both me and the cat thought so, so he cuddled up in my robe with me.

one hundred and forty

An odd day. Working, visiting a friend, shopping for groceries and the more work. A very secluded day in the midst of a lot going on.

one hundred and thirty nine

I teach courses in Knitting According to Patterns in English, to Swedish knitters who want to broaden their views. It's always a blast, and tonight was no exception!

one hundred and thirty eight

I lectured. I went home. I slept.
I am so tired it's ridiculous. New diet hasn't settled with the body yet I guess.

one hundred and thirty seven

I had visitors all afternoon, and it got me going. It was a very good day, but as soon as I sit down I realize how tired I am. Very. Very. Tired.

I made lemonade! Black currant and lime lemonade. Steamed in a special steamer and absolutely wonderful. It's the best drink I ever had knowing I did this all by myself. It's been a very relaxed, busy Saturday.

one hundred and thirty five

At a stand up show that was funny sometimes, but what a weird setup! I was entertained, but also very confused. Maybe I'm growing old? But we laughed at it all in the end.

one hundred and thirty four

Today I was a teacher, but had to watch my tongue. Was provoked, met students I disagreed with completely... but wasn't there to comment on their personal agenda.
Embrace difference right - but he was still a schmuck.

one hundred and thirty three

Big presentation in front of a lot of people. It felt good, but I still doubt my work a lot. I should be doing more, but could I? Can I?
(Not the best photo, but it was out of my hands)

one hundred and thirty two

My need to do something and show people around me what I believe in had me dig out this.
It's my grandmother's silver pendant. The old Swedish social democratic rose, surrounded by the female sign. It's from the party's women's club and it felt like the perfect accessory today.

one hundred and thirty one

The world is a darker and colder place since yesterday, when my beloved country voted to make way for a racist and right wing party in parliament. I cried last night, but I woke up with a will to do and a will to change I haven't felt in a long time. It's time to DO rather than just SAY a lot.

one hundred and thirty

Doing my civic duty for democracy. Election day.
I know what I vote for and why, and I can only hope enough people think like I do.
The future is scary.

one hundred and twenty nine

Shopping for new foods and kind of a new life style. Felt good about tough choices. Let's hope it works.

one hundred and twenty eight

Odd day. I was a month early to a lecture (I'm sure the mail said 9, not 10!) and was then thrown off course all day. Ended with a restaurant dinner with friends which was nice, but I felt oddly out-of-place.

Headache is back.
I feel like a dead person.

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

one hundred and twenty six

Office. Work. Shopping.
Doing one thing at a time the whole long day.

one hundred and twenty five

A productive day ended with crayfish fishing.
Interesting and great with new experiences!

The day started off great. Lots done. Lots of energy. But this headache hit me like a sledgehammer.

one hundred and twenty three

I conquered the flu! And I went out and knitted and saw people, and had a good time.
I saw Ida who is also spokesperson for a local campaign o get people to go and vote september 19! I'm so proud of her, and look at that photo! She's awesome!

Who was I kidding? Still sick.

one hundred and twenty one

I went out. I spent two hours at a party trying not to feel ill anymore.
Party mood means stripy tights. Not even stripes fooled the fever though...

Thursday, September 9, 2010

one hundred and twenty

Still sick, but better. A calm day letting mind and body heal.
I think I badly needed this. I feel a lot better. Except for the hurting throat.

Sicker. Throat as thick and dense as a telephone pole.

Monday, September 6, 2010

one hundred and seventeen

At home sick, but had a lovely evening.
I started an online knitting café on Facebook on a whim, and over the evening the event gathered 170 visitors! So a whole day feverish and knitting. Knitting. Knitting. With cozy company

This bracelet is so far the most creative part of my day.
That didn't come out exactly as planned either.

We're building a wood shop in the barn. Today I painted a cabinet.
He built a frame.

You know it's a good day when you ball some yarn for lunch.
Now, back to work.

one hundred and thirteen

I tried setting up my camera to shoot me "in action - working" since I did some of that. I keep forgetting to bring camera to exiting work events (such as a lecture I did today!).
A couple of shots came out appropriate and boring. This - zoomed way too close - made me smile. It's more honest. This is how out of control of things I feel right now. I can't even use the zoom right.
(The mood for today does not apply to that lecture. When lecturing I felt alive!)

one hundred and twelve

It's finally dusk. I lectured today. I felt more comfortable telling others about what I do, than actually doing it. Weird. Felt as if I was lying about the whole thing, even though I wasn't.
