i remember light







november in denmark.  dark. dreary. cloudy. foggy. rainy. it's good to be able to remember the light (or at least browse it in iPhoto).

i think we've only seen the sun briefly through a haze of fog since november started. it's driving me mad, as i'm trying to post my next projects in the handmade holiday course and the light is just not cooperating for my photos. so. frustrating. so please hang on, my dears, i do promise there's goodness on its way!! if i could just get some decent photos of it.

i know that november is like this. it has been since my first november here. i remember being quite shocked at how dark and dreary it was. and i remember going out one evening with husband (who wasn't husband yet then) to a movie. on our bicycles. in the rain. wearing a flowy, silk j. peterman dress. that got caught in my bike chain. and i had to stand there, getting soaked in the rain, while husband (who almost didn't become husband after that) got it out of my chain. luckily i realized the weather wasn't his fault.  but ever since then november is my least favorite month.

I too am suffering lack of sunlight this month.

I think Denmark is worse for it, but the gray misery here this week, and lack of light in the flat is terrible. It feels like nighttime indoors from lunch onwards! So depressing.

Thank you for sharing a little bit of sunlight today!

That date story is pretty hilarious.

I have to force myself to remember that just because it's getting darker earlier and staying dreary more, I don't need to spend all my extra time in bed. Man, oh, man! This weather makes me want to sleep all the time. :)

Well, the weather is SOMEONE'S fault!
