Of Mice and Yarn

These are the fruits of our first local yarn shop trip in Reykjavík - two skeins of gorgeous silk laceweight in an icy blue, and these three little wooden mouse buttons.  Sometimes I swear I'm still a six year old girl, because certain types of cute - usually small rodents and fish - make my brain start squeaking and flapping its arms up and down with excitement.

We've had a rather quiet last couple of days.  I haven't been sleeping well, and Tuesday the insomnia finally turned into my first migraine ever.  (Note to self: in the future, bring NSAIDs to foreign countries!)  That's not to say we haven't been having a good time, however: we made it out to some awesome local yarn and fabric shops (details to come!) and ate some great Thai food, I drooled over some amazing shoes, and we stayed up to watch the US election results early Wednesday morning - the results weren't called until 6 a.m. Icelandic time!

We're going back to the US tomorrow afternoon, and although we've had a great time, I'm also very ready to sleep like a normal human being in my own bed, cuddle with Mr. Mackie, and get back to work at school.  I have been soothing my growing homesickness with pictures of my favorite tiny person:


And luckily, I will be seeing his face in person tomorrow.  Yay!
