I brought the kids for a weekend in Grimstad to make sure they don't actually think Sørlandet is only about summer and swimming. The November light is beautiful, and we had some nice walks around town and the nearby wooden hills.
Hey - Nathania! Remember this?

I've been waiting to go to the Miró museum in Barcelona since 1994. This October I went to Girona for a conference, and the one thing I prioritized other than the conference was - of course - finally seeing the museum. Back in Norway it was raining - chilly autumn weather - and in Spain I wandered about in summer skirts, gently cooled under the large trees - and just took in Spain, Miró and the scent of Barcelona...

It's a bit past 6 - and I've already been up for a couple of hours. My youngest son woke me up at 03h30, and I could not go to sleep again. I'm really not used to this anymore - it's been almost three years since they regularily held us awake during night hours. Turns out I got a bunch of work done, though. - which is good, because I'm leaving my present position in one and a half week - and there's so much I should finish before that!!!
Here is my bonzai - I bought it to introduce a(-nother) token of calm and quiet in our externally seemingly buzy home. I love to see it there in front of my rice paper lamp when I knit in the evening - listening to Bugge Wesseltoft playing away the snow on his piano.

This fall has been stuffed with work in different shades. There hasn't been much knitting - there hasn't been much blogging. The main reason of the latter is a rather bad technical (although factual) excuse... We got a new camera and it's not really plug and play to get my photos uploaded. (I know - bad excuse.) This combined with too much work - to little spare time - hmf. I'm planning on improving that, however...
Instead of waiting to get all my waiting to be blogged pics available I'm now starting in the other end. This is what I do now. Right now I drink wine. - a sweet, lovely Muscat from Bonny Doon California that we got from Anne who came to see us a month ago. Anne is disputing for her PhD next week, and I'm going to Trondheim to celebrate ;) Juhu!! Thanks for the wine, Anne! Lovely for special occasions!!!
