Beautiful days

I can’t believe it. When I woke up at 6 am, the sun was shining and there were no winds at all. The Faroes really look like picture I have as a top banner these days. Green and blue – and yellow because of all the buttercups you see everywhere.

What woke me up, was two oystercatchers – there are so many of them in the valley where I live – that was sitting on a rooftop, having an argument.

Actually, I didn’t sleep much – we don’t have any curtains in our bedroom (there are no neighbours to that side of the house anyway), and that is a problem at this time of the year. At 11-12 pm, it’s almost daylight! Not strange, when thinking of the latitude where the Faroes are located. As I can see on my little “widget” on my blog page, it says

Sunrise: 4.04 am
Sunset: 10.49 pm

And after a long and dark winter, it’s just refreshing with all that light – even if it means that I don’t sleep as tight as I do on dark winter nights.

So. I’m up early, and I have many plans for today.
1. Clean house. All of it! I’ve been away for a long time, and my boyfriend is not a..well.. he wouldn’t do well as a housekeeper, to put it so 😉

2. Laundry – it’s good when weather is so warm and sunny, so clothings ect. can dry outside.

3. Fishing. I’ll see if I can catch a cod or a flounder for dinner – there are many of those here, so they’re easy to catch. Strange country. No vegetables or fruits grow here, but there are plenty of fish. But I’m not complaining.

4. Organize things – my office is a real mess. I have to do something about it now, before it’s too late! 😆

So – enough writing. Guess I have to get started now.
Have a nice week everyone 😉
