Especially when i wake up early with Isabella and not a hangover in sight. Today has been spent, sewing together a dress that i bought second hand a while back but came loose at the seams , maybe cause it´s a wee bit small for me :) Anuway i did that and then my good friend Bergthora came over and i took some photos of a character that she is making for school. It´s really cute see!
This is me Isabella and Bergthora
So it´s still snowing and i just took this out of my living room window
Tonight my friend Hneta is celebrating her 30th birthday with a 20´s themed party. I´m really exited and now i´m off to make myself look like a 20´s vixen yay!!
last night it snowed, it snowed and snowed and by god it´s still snowing. It´s not that i dislike snow i like snow. I like it in small portions and not when i think that spring is around the corner. Icelandic weather is schizophrenic to say the least. The weather was so bad this morning that i could not be bothered to walk my four year old to daycare. And know i´m dealing with one cranky four year old and no peace to study.
So the plan now is to take said four year old out walking in the snow and make her tired very tired and if i´m lucky she will nap when we´re home. Ohh that would be heaven, yes! It will involve a bribe to get her out of the house but , oh well a mothers got to do what a mothers got to do, right ?
Waiting anxiously for the baby that was growing inside me. It´s so strange to look back and think that i had never seen her, that her constant presence in my life was about to begin and i had no idea what to expect, how she looked like and what kind of personality she would be born with. A week after this photo was taken i endured the worst physical pain of my life to push her into this world of ours and oh how that experience changed me forever. Suddenly i was responsible for a little life that just wanted me, needed me. Becoming a mother did for me what years of antidepressants never did for me, it gave me peace of mind and a sense of importance, a sense of worth.
Today she is four and oh how four is great, she woke up with a smiling face and even let me do her hair and that i tell you is a rarity almost unheard of in my household. I threw her a birthday party yesterday where her little cousins and my friends and their kids came and gave her presents and ate cake. It was a fun day.
Oh how i love lost. I usually pick a Tv show to become obsessed with each year and then my interest just fizzles. Not Lost. For 6 season i have ooh´d and aah´d over the phenomenon that Lost is. The fact that i get quite easily bored does not seem to apply to this show. I do know quite a few people who just could not watch it after season two and never even thought about going back. I pity them, they have missed so much. Because Lost seems to embody everything that good tv needs. Action, Love, lust, betrayal, trust, pretty people, ugly peolpe and ofcourse very, very good characters. And after what is it five years, i´m still totally LOST!
Today is Ash wednsday and here where i live we celebrate ash wednsday by dressing up in funny costumes and just participating general happiness, for kids at least. Isabella´s costume was Sleeping Beauty and she was so so cute.
I finally remembered to bring my camera with me when i picked Isabella up from daycare today. Got some nice shots of her in the brilliant sunny weather. I´m a bit tired today, feeling kind of uninspired. I guess it´s just the usual February blues that everyone gets around here. I presented my idea for my final project yesterday and i just feel more confused than ever. ohh what to do, what to do. On a better note The Boyfriend is taking me and Isabella out for dinner in a few minutes, that will most defenetly cheer me up a bit..yay!!
Anyway i found a brilliant photographer whilst doing research for my final project. Her name is Holly Andres and is an American Photographer born in 1977. She makes these most amazing pieces of art. Just look!! Her website.
...Have mostly been spent redecorating. Who knew that i had a passion for decorating, at least not me. Now i´m obsessed, obsessed!! I have stalked design blogs like there's no tomorrow and now i am even dreaming about interior design god help me!
Anyway, today at school i had to present my idea for what will be my final project at LHI, and i found out from my teachers that i really need to narrow down my initial idea as it contains way to many aspects of stuff that really does not need to be there. So next up is a visit to Amazon.com to order books for my research. I think that if i´ll put my whole being into this it will be good, i mean common it has to be good, it´s my final project!! The final show is in late april so i do have some time to get it done.
