This morning I was in Iceland with a bit of snow on the ground. A few hours later I was safe home enjoying the sun on our boat....

Day 139

We did a glacier hike today. 
It was very impressive.
It makes me very small as a human. (and humble)

Day 135

Actually, I didn't take this picture today. I took it a few days ago but I couldn't post it because this fabulous baby blanket was a gift.  
A gift made by my daughter for one of her caregivers who is pregnant of a baby boy.
I'm so proud of my daughter, she has a mild mentally handicap and autism. 
She choose the yarn herself and crocheted this blanket stitch by stitch, day by day.

Day 133

Around the corner there is a paving-stone in the pavement with a smile. 
I noticed it a few times when I cycled fast over it.
but when I turned around I couldn't find it. 
.. I thought it was something in my mind. 
Today I walked at that place and searched for it. 
 It wasn't an imagination, I found it.  The paving-stones are very old. I think from the 30's. 
There was someone working at the brick kiln who created this happy face. 
It makes me smile.

'I'm in love'

I bought this cute tiny jug at  The Reed Warbler Shop.
It is a Jane Hogben. With the blue tits in my garden it is perfect for me. 
The grey yarn at the back is Rennie shetland lambswool. I'm going to knit a shawl. Hope to start today and if not, I will tomorrow :-)

For days I saw the blue tits bringing small tiny twigs into the birdhouse. Now they are making it soft and cozy with mosses.
