my ship has come in

The ship carrying my loom and other treats from the Boston life has arrived today. I haven't seen this stuff since April 26, when Ed & Ed took it away. Now I'll be able to do something with the awesome wool from the Faroe Islands I was given as a housewarming present.

Of course, it's going to be several days before I actually see the stuff, but it's still comforting to know that it's in The Land finally.

Ship Sighting:Skógafoss brought my goods here so it is my ship for today. Note that this is the photo referenced in the comment on my April posting linked above, and also happens to be the ship that brought J his whole house and car. I'm going to develop a soft spot for this ship. I already liked the waterfall it is named after.

I recognize that waterfall from the photos that PC/JDK took on their trip to visit you. nifty! Now if I could only pronounce it. What sound does that silly 'o' make?

yeah, it's one of the more well-known waterfalls (and in a country with as many waterfalls as Iceland, that means something). I think there is supposed to be treasure behind it or something cool too. The ó is just a long "o" sound, like the sound in the middle of "load". If you want to listen to some Icelandic and pick up some vocab, check out this site.
