hyggjaa hytten

I wanted to write something, but i don’t know what. Right now i feel like theres constantly so much happening but everything is standing still at the same time, and i can’t get my thoughts aligned long enough to string together a sentence worth reading. Part of me wishes we were all in Denmark right now so i could take a walk in the dark woods under the moonlight, but thats so very far away.
Its a quiet evening here in hyggjaa hytten, Im just sitting at the kitchen table and writing the weeks shopping list on my phone while the others are watching an old Sherlock Holmes series. Not so long from now i’ll probably go to bed and read some more about “Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee,” before i fall asleep.

ships in my tea cup

Its been a long yet productive weekend. Tomorrow is my last work day before i have some time off, and i can’t wait to sleep later than 6.30am. I’ve been dreaming about all the things i want to do and all the places i want to be, but unfortunately i can only be in one place at a time — and where i am right now isn’t on my list of places. I’m grateful for the experience i’ve gained here but sometimes i feel like a caged bird that gets fed old crackers to pipe back a name or flip on my perch.
I want to be out there somewhere getting lost and getting dirt under my finger nails. Somewhere that’ll be truly home. Once i’ve finished getting some farrier experience under my belt i think i’ll be more than ready to get on the road and try to find where my forever will be.
So for now i’ll dream into my tea cup and try to survive the ghastly humidity that we’re having up here in the North East.
Have a lovely on-coming week!


studyin’ by a window-pane

Theres nothing particular to write about today. I could write a post about something pointless or complain about something thats been irritating me, but instead i’m reading, taking notes and over thinking things. Nothing is happening today. I’m not working out or going to work. Today i’ll sit at my kitchen table and study hooves, then i’ll probably read something or watch my beloved ghosty programs on television with Basil.

My body is physically exhausted right now and i can barely venture further than the living room. I’m proud i didn’t stay in bed all day even if i feel i need to — one adult point for me! Currently on my brain is how i’ll incorporate more “expat” posts into this blog and more lifestyle related things, but being a very private person it starts getting a bit tough, like getting blood from a mountain. So far i feel its mostly just the ramblings of a crazy person but i’m still finding my “niche” … i’m still trying to find what it is that i can contribute.

And so, i must leave you to my books. Happy Monday and have a great week.

jumpin’ jumpers and bamboo

I finally succeeded in knitting a jumper successfully !
Actually semi-successfully. Its wearable, warm and comfy, not to mention the absolute best colour yarn can be. However it does look like its been dragged through hell and back — but at least it has as much character as i do.
I’m proud.
