Another Mom blogging...

I love New Years in Iceland. We have a special way of celebrating it, at least I think it is. Fireworks start here at 11.30 until midnight to say your goodbye to the last year. Than you run into the house, clinging glasses together and screaming: "Gledilegt Nytt Ar!" to everyone around you and smacking your lips on cheeks you wouldn´t kiss any other day of the year. In Iceland, it is also a good moment to de-frost after being outside for half an hour, deperately trying to light that darn string on the firework with fingers that could be used as chopsticks!
After midnight you run out again and welcome the New Year with some more noise.
So I did all that, send the one firework I bought into the sky and mumbled to myself: "No regrets!"

On another note: Mom started a new BLOG today, so why don´t you be a good blogger buddy and hop on over there and say hi?!

And I almost forgot: rabbit, rabbit everybody!

Hallo liebe Monika! Ich wünsche dir ein wunderschönes 2006! Auf dass sich der eine oder andere private und berufliche Wunsch erfüllt! Und da Sabine ja immer fitter wird, könnt ihr beide mit auf Wanderung, wenn wir mal wieder auf Island weilen ;o) Du bist für den Trockenfisch zuständig, Jürgen fürs Schleppen!
Sabine wollte ich einige nette Zeilen auf ihrem neuen blog hinterlassen, anonyme blogger werden aber nicht akzeptiert....Schade!

LG Kerstin

Bitte, Mom!
Doug, sometimes it is cold here. I heard sometimes it is quite warm in California. True?
Gréta, welcome here. It is lovely that you came. Saw you over at Móa´s place:)
Tryggvi, the Kjáns say "hi" back.

I've heard of it being warm here. Usually it stays under a chilly 40 degrees celcius.
