My summer vows

History of life

Ack, I'm so busy! I hardly have time to spell my name right. I'm language editing the second part of the Norwegian translation of A Game of Thrones, and the deadline is July 1st, and due to some chicken-poxy hiccups, I'm behind schedule.

So these days, I just stay at my desk, all crazy-haired and wild-eyed, tearing through the pages like an insufferable, know-it-all whirlwind. But every few hours, I glance up and see the trees outside and remember that my summer holiday is only eight days away. Or is it seven? Gah! Must dash. Must whirl. But in the meantime, here are my summer promises. I will:


Eat sweet morello cherries.


Stay in the dappled shade.

Lemony Snicket III

Spend time at the cabin.


Read by the ocean.

Hilser på

Visit friends.


Stay healthy.


Lie in the grass.


Stay up too late.

Oh, and the photos are of course by Lin.
