…it’s been a while.
First of all – How are you? :)
I’ve been up to a lot, non-bemygoth-related. Which sort of makes me feel bad, because I miss it. But there is only 24 hours a day, and I am not proper in all of them. :P
To tell you a little about what I have been up to..
I went to Greenland the 36th of July, for my sisters wedding. It was beautiful! I went to a town called Ilulissat, which means something like “with Icebergs”, and one really does see why!
The place was really magnificent. I was lucky to be with my sister and her (then-to-be) husband, because they had a boat, and we went sailing. It was such an amazing experience! I’m not really one for smacking mosquitoes or flies, so it was rather intimidating to catch fish and take their lives… But it was well worth it, because we had truly fresh fish for dinner that day! :D
It was pretty darn cold too – when we went sailing. So I had to borrow some clothes of my sister. :) Luckily we’re not to far apart, size-wise. :P And the picture above is me… catching fish. Weee!
The fish we didn’t eat were cut up to be made into “dried fish”. They’ll be freeze dried when the winter comes, and hopefully they’ll send me some. :P I got some dried fish and whale to bring home, so I’m really enjoying that. :)
That, plus some other traditional Greenlandic foods, I really miss. And the scenery – oh the scenery!
Denmark is really really flat, so it was nice to be surrounded by mountains and the sea again!
Even though they had midnight sun, where I stayed, the sun hid behind some mountain for a couple of hours at night. And the sunsets were really really breathtaking! The picture above shows the view from my sister’s and her husband’s house! If I had that view, I’d stare out for hours on end every day! It would probably be pretty healthy too, considering our fast paced lives, we live nowadays. :P
Which leads me to my next “excuse” for not hanging out here at Bemygoth.com, and Google+ and Facebook and everywhere else. Before I went to Greenland I was working sort of full time in the fabric shop, where I now work more part-time-ish. So there went 2 months where I couldn’t really manage to be here..
ooooooh… excuses, excuses. I shall rid myself of them. It actually feels nice blurting this out – I might just get myself motivated to write again – AND I still have tons of tutorial ideas, so don’t fret – they will come! But I have promised myself not to stress…. ever again *cough*! Here’s for dreaming of the perfect life with everything in balance! :P
Actually I am going to sew quite a lot more for her the coming weeks, I suppose – but I’ll see if I can get some things done around here, to get the creative juices flowing again! :D
Here’s a picture of my sister and her husband from their wedding day:
They’re both wearing traditional Greenlandic clothing. :) I’d love to make a woman’s suit one day. But it should take a couple of years to produce, so I think it will be when I’m more zen-like…. :P
Well – Hurrah, for writing a blog post!
Hope it’ll be soon until next time. And I wish you the best of weeks!
