One of these days

One of these days I’ll figure out how to properly schedule my summer.

Some years I plan too little and end up sitting around Brooklyn, boiling and bitching about how bored I am. Other years I plan too much and have permanent jet lag. This summer has fallen into the latter category. Without question, this has been the Summer of Travel. Three weeks digging in Missouri. Two weeks visiting family in Seattle. And now, two weeks coming up in Norway.

I’m not complaining (well…Missouri kind of sucked, so maybe I’m complaining a little), but the problem with the Summer of Travel is that it is most decidedly NOT the Summer of Writing. Don’t get me wrong, I did make headway on my various writing projects between trips, but not nearly as much as I’d hoped or envisioned when the semester ended in June.

Still…Norway! I’m very excited. There will be fjords, and mountains (and if we’re very lucky) trolls! Also 22 hours of daylight. Yikes. I’ll try to post some updates, but in the meantime, have a fjord:


You’re welcome!

Bon voyage, my friends! I’ll see you in September 🙂

    We just got back from Norway. For some strange reason one of our hotels had no curtains, so we experienced the 22-hour daylight to the full! (I went to reception who said, “Yes, a lot of people complain about the lack of curtains. We can give you some sheets to hang over the windows if you like….” WHAT?!?!?).

    Anyway it was a holiday of a lifetime for us – I hope you have fun!

      Thanks! We’re very excited. My husband has insisted on packing black trash bags and tape, which I thought was kind of silly until I heard your story about the curtains. Maybe it’ll come in handy after all!
