Well hello there... ugh, seems like it has been the better part of a month since I last posted.
It's not like there weren't any updates on the building - the only thing I seem to be able to write about at the moment - but somehow I felt like I had nothing to show.
And that is true - because there are no pictures. And why didn't I take any? I kind of forgot... you know, my (still quite shiny new) green camera parted into the nirvana a few weeks (a couple of months?) ago. I can still switch it on, the screen still works - it just won't take any pictures. It's not really worth mending it, as much as I hate that, but I don't have a warranty.
So I am without a camera. Well, there is Trev's old one, but to be honest, I really don't like using it because it does not do good shots. (I'm a point-and-shooter, the camera has to do the work, really)
So I keep procrastinating about pictures, or just plain forget to take the camera out.
And blogging without pictures is like a presentation without ppp...
Well, so be it. I am working on getting a new picture-making-gadget for Xmas the latest and I hope it will make me a happy girl again.
Atm though what will make me happy is a far simpler thing and that is friday night to come because that is when Trev returns from a one-week stay over in England and I miss him so much. We just kind of settled in here in my flat together, having all his stuff over and everything organised so that it feels like two people are living here, in contrast of a person being the permanent guest of the other... you know what I mean (don't you?).
Well, him being away also has good sides, I get to work on his Xmas surprises for example, I hang around the internet reading inspiring blogs (hence my effort here), and I am working on my English like crazy, because hell, I'm signed up for that Profisciency test in two weeks! I don't really know how December came close so fast, it must have put stilts on!
I had just settled with the idea of a dark and cozy November, but now I have to kickstart myself into Christmas mood!
Not that I need the energy for whipping out presents, apart from Trev's all of them are ready and wrapped since a week. I am an early bird this year. I just have so much fun making the presents and the cards and wrapping them nicely when I have no pressure.
But of course there is still the decorating, planning xmassy stuff for school and thinking about events like santa clause or christmas dinner.
Well, I would wish for it to be at the yurt - the finished one I mean - but since the weeks fly by so quickly I think it would take more than a lucky charm for us to be able to finish it in time... although I did finish almost all of the roofpoles AND the tarp last weekend.
So all left to construct is the lightring and 77 short poles, then we can start building... I've been thinking about this moment so often that now that it has come so close I don't feel anything about it anymore. I guess that really is a sign that we should finish that whole project soon. The sooner the better... *sigh*
OK, I admit, I got all emotional about not blogging, I felt bad, and I got babbling, but now Ill stop, and I'll give you a link to run to so you have something, if not any pictures:
Two cheese please is a really inspiring crafty blog of an australian girl, and if you lack ideas for xmas presents or decorations, this is the post for you: A selfmade stamps tutorial!
