Here I am at a café last night for a photo nerd meeting. Photo credits to this guy.

This week had a scary Tuesday theme.

I've been taking nightly biology lessons lately to do better at playschool.

I went to a summerhouse this weekend with my grandparents and my cousins. On the way back in the car last night I fell asleep so Dad stopped and took this picture.

Today's photo theme is pink. Helena at Fototriss is supporting the Swedish pink ribbon campaign with 1kr for every participant this week. So you can help the campaign just by taking part in this week's theme.
Pink is usually what my friends wear but sometimes I'm allowed to join in. The first picture was taken on one of our trips at a surprise birthday cave party. We were planning to stop by the road somewhere to have a party and the Icelandic weather made us use this cave by the road 1 on the South coast. I think the other 2 pics doesn't require any further explanations. They are taken on this trip.

When the banks went bankrupt last year the former Prime Minister made a famous TV speech where he used the phrase God bless Iceland (gúð blessi Ísland) which was to stress the seriousness of the situation. Iceland is not a religious country and politicians here do not mention God in their jobs. A few days ago there was an article in the paper about a lady that teaches cross stitching at an old people's home. She has now started to cross stitch this phrase. The old people also made cross stitching wall pieces with the slogan: helvítis fokking fokk that would translate something like damn fucking fuck. It comes from a TV comedy show where a man made a sign to use in the demonstrations outside the parliament last fall and he couldn't put into words a better slogan that summarized how bad things were. You feel warm inside thinking about the old people cross stitching these things.

The first picture is taken in the old abandoned herring factory.

My favourite occupation these days is washing up in the kitchen standing on a high chair and splashing with the water. As you know by now I also do it when I wake up at night. I'm not always allowed though. The other day when Mom told me I shouldn't play with water because I'd end up soaking wet I took all of my clothes off and continued.
The other day I talked to grandma and grandad in Sweden on the phone. We talked about my visiting them which is in more than a months time. Then when we hung up I grabbed Mom and went towards the stairs because I was going to Sweden with a plane for a visit. It wasn't a problem that I was naked, because I was just about to take a bath or the fact that it was 9PM at night.

I went to Sushi train on Saturday. I sat almost hypnotized watching the sushi plates go by for an hour or so. Mom and Dad just couldn't recall sitting down for so long ever before. They have colorful plastic plates that you can throw around as you like. And when you get tired they have both escalators and an elevator to the downstairs bookstore. The children's chairs are ridiculously low though compared to the bar stools. Or camera doesn't have a flash so the pics are taken with just the candlelight.

Today I woke up at 2AM went into the kitchen where I grabbed a chair and started washing up in the sink. When Dad asked what I was doing I said I'm finished sleeping, I'm going to work.

This is a quote for you who can read Icelandic. Some things are really hard to translate. I have a period now when I say It's mine - ég á þetta - in an extremely angry tone about toys and stuff. Everything goes. It's a very versatile phrase. In the car this weekend I used it on my twin firends about Mom.

I've taken part in this photo theme before in November last year, in February and May this year. These pictures are taken on Saturday evening and night in the Highlands of Iceland. (It's the inhabited higher areas in the middle of the island. There are only cabins where you can stay overnight.) It looks a bit cold but we don't have snow where we live in Reykjavik yet.
The last picture was taken in the dark so there's no UFOs in the house in the middle it's just the toilet/showers where they have the lights on at night. And you can see the moon and the stars. Dad then took one picture of the stars for 6 hours so we were out of battery and couldn't take any pictures today...

The picture is blogged with Mom's mobile. We weren't able to take any pictures today with our camera because it had a very hard night out in the cold taking a 6 hour picture. So in stead of pictures of me playing in the snow one of Dad's night shots is soon to come. And yes he leaves the camera outside when he goes to sleep. The day before the strongest winds were 55m/s. So the camera is one of a kind.
