Happy Holidays to Everyone!!

Wish you all the best for the holidays and the New Year!! Hope you all are having a wonderful time with friends and family! We're on the third day of Christmas and closing in to the big night, New Years Eve. I'm lucky enough to have some days off from work. Some time for myself and my projects, fixing photos and finishing up an order on a fascinator. And last but not least; cleaning up the house, which looks like a small pig stie, after neglecting the growing piles of dishes and laundry for several days now.. I should be able to get it nice and shiny again, just in time for our New Years party!

We're having lovely Miss Lindy Lee and her man over, for New Years eve. Hopefully Miss E and her man, Kim will be joining us too! And maybe my sister. Not the biggest New Years party, but sometimes the smallest parties can also be the nicest and most memorable ones. The most important is the people that you are with I think, being with good friends is what counts on a night like this;)

What is your plans?

Our first Christmas tree (!!) and a peek at the Christmas decoration around my work space;)

Magical Scenery

I was laying at the sofa with long limbs stretched out and my feet up high, after an other miles long day at work. Zapping between channels, but only boring reality shows and sports to watch. I have to admit I don't watch sports much, I just find it really boring and I'm picky. It has to be the right kinda sports. Reality can be fun, but not all reality and certainly not too much of it..

In my boredom I gazed out of the window and discovered this beautiful view. An almost full moon traveling over a night blue sky. A few clouds and some twisted branches, set the perfect back drop to a goulish and magical scenery.. Can not help but to LOVE our new livingroom view:)

Isn't it beautiful?

Alone

Outside the fog is hanging thick in the air. Covering the world in a misty, woolen blanket.. Hiding it in a veil of tiny water drops. An other sip of my coffee.. Crackles from the fire place as a log falls over. It's quiet now. I could be alone in the world, in the whole universe for that matter.. Wonder how it would feel like. Floating in a bubble of time and space, in a raven black sky, all alone. Like a baby in the womb, with no escape plan. A space traveler, caught up in my own self. No plan, or mission.. Just to be.

Footsteps next doors throws me out of my spiral of thoughts. I'm not alone.. A feeling of relief washes over me.

Me Time

Relaxing Saturday in the nest.. Morning coffee and surfing the web. My love is still sleeping after a late movie night here yesterday. I usually like to get up a little earlier, to get the most out of my free day. Even if it's just goofing around online. It's something so soothing about Saturday mornings, spent solo, just me an my coffee. While the my love and the rest of the world is sleeping. At least it felt like that, till our little neighbour got up.. lol

What about you guys.. Do you get up Saturday morning, or do you usually sleep in?

In the lack of anything better. A few cute kitties to make you smile, and feel warm and fuzzy inside;)

Long Looong Week = Red Red Wine

After what's becoming a very long zzzzweek, with many late nights at work, I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend with my love.. Yes, we're skipping the whole Jamboree thing! Just too much work on both of us here lately.. Hmmmm O mighty Godzilla, is it the first sign of getting old?

Instead we will be gathering some friends for some wine and Halloween/birthday celebration in our new nest. The plan is no plan, just hang out and relax. Sounds just swell to me, just what I need if you ask me! Weekend, oh dearest weekend.. You can't get here fast enough!! *Sigh*

Halloween is Closing in..

I Can Feel It in my bones and hear it in the wind...

Even if we're not going to decorate much this year, I've decided that the minimum would, at least have to be a Jack'o lantern on our steps! I'll head up to the flower market tomorrow and see what I can find..

Mmmmm and where did last years monsters end up? I think I'll have to tip toe down in the castle dungeons, tap their slimy tentacles and spiky heads, while I whisper "it's time to wakie my sweet ones, once again"...

Bunker Hill - Red Riding Hood & The Wolf

I have a brutally sweet tune from Bunker Hill, for you guys this Saturday!! I'm gonna walk the hoover and do some cleaning, but I need some inspiration.. What's not better than having some music to the work?

We're also closing in on Halloween, time to warm up with Red Riding Hood and The Wolf! One of my favourite fairytales..;) Do you have a favourite?

Late Shift and Photo Fixing

Late night working again! At least I get to go through my photos for the winter jewelry collection and prepare the products for the shop. Can't complain;)

A tiny taste of how it will look like!!

My Halloween

*Sigh* heartbreak and some more heartbreak.. I've pushed everything about Halloween as far back in my head as I can, over the last few weeks.. Boxed it up in a hidden place inside my brain. Also the reason why I haven't been writing about it. But what to do, it still comes popping up, like a clown in a box. Especially now we're getting closer and all I see around me is Halloween. The smell in the air and the leaves turning yellow, everything reminds me of my favourite holiday.

The reason to my heartbreak is that we decided not to have any Halloween party this year, due to all the work around the moving. And not to mention the money that's been flying out.. We will still celebrate, but maybe do something different.. Different can be good, but not sure how happy I'm about it right now. It feels a bit like we canceled Halloween. We should be busy building monsters right now!! No wonder I feel outta place.. Mmmm grrrr!

In the meanwhile we are rolling thumbs and contemplating going to Oslo Rock City Jamboree. A rock festival in down town Oslo with burlesque, concerts, shows, tattooing and other goodies going on! They also throw a halloween party!! Sounds like a bunch of fun and it might be a good idea. Our second option is to have a small party at home, reusing some old props and not going too crazy on the decor. But that's no fun. That's why we decided to drop it all together in the first place... *Rolling thumbs* Hopefully we'll decide before the big night!

What is your plans?:)

Friday Tune - Don´t Wanna Leave The Congo

Lets kick off the weekend with this fab tune from the The Valiants, with Don´t Wanna Leave The Congo!! Don't you just love the jungle rythms, mixed with a good dash of ol' rock'n'roll?

Turn up the sound and let the music fill the room.. Kick off your shoes, lean back, relax and let it sink in; yes, it is weekend! Finally, at last!!

Wish you all a lovely one;)
