TUSAL - Pink - Januar 2018

       Så er det atter nymåne, og stumpebøtten er FULD. Det er ikke fordi Uglemor har lavet så meget. Men de forsvundne stumper fra august sidste år, dukkede op i forbindelse med indretningen af de pink hylder.

 Now it's once again New moon. The ORTs jar is full and more. Not because MotherOwl has been busy stitching etc. No, but the disappeared ORTs from August 2017 suddenly appeared.


      Og så fik Uglemor en kæmpepose lyserøde strimler sammen med de lyserøde hylder.

And together with the pink shelves, MotherOwl got a giant bag with pink rug rags.


     De var enormt kludrede og enormt lange. Uglemor brugte to dage på at kludre dem ud. En af strimlerne, ikke den længste, målte ca 87 meter. Hvordan de er blevet så lange, fatter Uglemor ikke rigtig, for der er ingen hjørner eller sammensyninger.

It was one bit tangle. It took MotherOwl two days to untangle it all. One of the strips, not the longest one, measured more than 87 metres! How they got this long, we do not understand. There's no corners and no joints in the strips.


     Her er alle strimlerne i en kurv. Der en noget andet nede i bunden, men alligevel er der totalt mange lyserøde strimler.

All the wound up strips in one basket. There's some other strips in the bottom, but it's still a load of pink.

Pink!

Nu havde Uglemor jo ryddet op i Uglehulen! Men vent og se ...

     For nogle dage siden hjalp Uglemor med at flytte (igen-igen) i vores lokale husflidsforening. Vi flyttede vores lager. Vi havde fået nye reoler, og de gamle skulle tages ned og flyttes væk. Uglemor slæbte hylder - lyserøde hylder. Først udenfor, så ind igen, hun havde vist misforstået noget. Så fik vi at vide, at de lyserøde og nogle andre hylder skulle smides ud, og vi måtte gerne tage dem med hjem. Uglemor ringede til Skribenten, jo tak - hylder ønskes. Uglemor fik hjælp af en flink dame, der kørte et par - eller otte - hylder hjem i sin bil, og Uglemor tog nogle sideelementer hjem med bussen.
     En anden dame havde fået nogle andre reoler, og tilbød at give Uglemor og de sidste hylder et lift i en trailer senere på dagen. Ja tak!

Well MotherOwl  had cleaned her project room ... but then ... Something happened.

Saturday MotherOwl met with many other members of the Weavers' guild Once again we had to move. This time only inside the same school, but still. New shelves were put up and MotherOwl carried all the old ones outside. Eh, maybe she misunderstood something. Outside was not outside, only out in the entry hall. MotherOwl carried all the pink shelves back inside again.
A little while later we were told that the pink shelves and some other ones were headed for the dump, so if anybody wanted to, they could carry them home - before Monday morning. After a phone call to the Writer, MotherOwl said Yes please to the pink shelves and carried 8 of them to the parking lot, where a nice lady had her pink car in which she promised to deliver said shelves to the Owlery. MotherOwl meanwhile took the long sides home by bus.
Another lady wanted two of the other not-pink shelves and would haul them home later on bringing her car and a trailer. If MotherOwl wanted to, she could tag along, give a hand with the other shelves, and bring the rest of the pink ones home. Mother Owl said Yes please.

- o -  💟 - o -

     Siden da har Uglemor med hjælp fra Ugleunger og Skribenten flyttet alle hylderne mindst to gange til. Piraten sagde: "Av, mor. De hylder vejer altså mindst 2 kilo." Spirillen svarede: "Nej, mindst fire!" Og Uglemor, der var træt af at have flyttet dem alle sammen flere gange, sukkede: "En hylde vejer nok 7 kilo." Uglemor troede at hun overdrev, men søreme, Spirillen hentede vægten, og en hylde vejede lige knap syv kilo.  Uglemor fik næsten 30 hylder med hjem, så hvor mange kilo har hun så flyttet? Nok til at have meget ømme arme i hvert fald.

MotherOwl and the Owlets carried all the shelves inside and the Owlets helped MotherOwl putting the shelves back together again. The Pirate said. Oh, those shelves sure are heavy. One self weighs at least two kilos. Marsupilami guessed 4 or 5 kilos.  MotherOwl was sore from hauling pink shelves and said. Those shelves! At least 7 kilos. Well almost 7 kilo when Marsupilami checked it out.

Lad os nu se resultatet. Vi prøver at sammenligne. Her følger billederne fra sidst, sammenlignet med, hvordan det ser ud i dag. Og ligesom sidst starter Uglemor med at stå i den åbne dør.

Let's see how the project room looks now. Here's the photos from January 6th once again, followed by today's photo  taken from the same angles.

6. januar


I dag - Today
 Ja, der er forskellen jo ikke så stor, men vent og se.    
 Vi kigger hen mod snydevinduet.

- o -  💟 - o -

Not so much seems to have happened here, but wait and see.
Let's turn towards the fake window.
6. januar
I dag - Today


Der er blevet mere plads, og tingene står ikke længere så meget i vejen for hinanden. Uglemor er tilfreds.

Much more space between the things, and it is much easier to get to the shelves and crates. MotherOwl is happy with the new look. 

- o -  💟 - o -

Så vender vi os mod det rigtige vindue
Turning to the real window: 
6. januar

... og i dag.


Forskellen er ikke så voldsom her heller, men der er faktisk mere luft.
More space, but not as visible a difference here.

- o -  💟 - o -

Og så er Uglemor kravlet op i hjørnet bag bordet for at vise væggen med den lyserøde reol:

And MotherOwl backed up into the corner behind the table to show off the pink shelves: 


Der er søreme plads til mange kasser i den reol. Intet under at Uglemor har fået bedre plads.

- o -  💟 - o -

Wow, what a lot of crates here. Small wonder that there's more free space elsewhere in the room.

Words for Wednesday 31. January


For the last time the The Words for Wednesday is hosted by Letting the Words Escape. Today's (or rather this Wednesday's) words are:


bloody
confidence
ranger
Apollo
submarine
Byron

and/or

dictionary
groundhog
dancing
rain
silent
Germany

I don't rigtly know what happened here. These words and my sons' homework, make sentences with these words, somehow spliced themselves in my mind. This happened:
 
Two mini-novellas - almost.

I have no bloody conficdence in rangers, Byron blurted. I'd rather enter the Apollo space shuttle than this darned submarine.

Groundhog day found us dancing in the silent rain, wishing we were still in Germany.


Back to the Classics - February

Link


My January read: A classic that scares you. (Dr. Zhivago! by Boris Pasternak), is still scaring, or rather boring me. It is such a long time going anywhere, and the painstakingly correct transscription of the Russian names bother me. 
I am still scared by that book.
So much actually, that I began reading again. I read several other books, some of which could qualify for this challenge, some decidedly not.  Being either modern Sct-Fi, childrens' books or just pure time-sinks. 
Well not so good so far. The "Back to the Classics"- Challenge has sent me into the arms of modern or un-classic books.





But still the February die was thrown. I got an 8, meaning:



8. A classic with a single-word title.
- Odysseen (Οδύσσεια) by Homer. Time for a re-read. In Danish, not Greek.
- Gymnadenia by Sigrid Undset. Everybody knows Kristin Lavransdatter, but this one is maybe even better.

As I'm still struggling with Dr. Zhivago, I think I'll go for Gymnadenia, my only problem is that my copy of this book is in Norwegian ... Oh, well I think, I'm ready to tackle even this in order to avoid the Doctor.

Hue med øreklapper -- Hat with Earflaps

Den er færdig!
Uglemor havde den på i morges!
Den er varm!

- o 👒😌 o -

The hat is done!
MotherOwl wore it today!
It is warm!



     Men næste dag havde Uglemor ikke hestehale, og uden den til at holde huen på plads, kravlede den langsomt op over ørerne.
     Uglemor  pillede det øverste af pulden op og lavede lidt længere mellem indtagningerne. Nu bliver huen nede om ørerne, selv når Uglemor har fletninger og bevæger sig voldsomt.

- o - ◴ - 👵 - ◷ - o -

But then next day MotherOwl did not tie her hair in a ponytail, and the hat crept upwards.
MotherOwl unraweled the top and re-knit it with a bit more rows between the decreases, this made the top a bit longer.
Now it stays put over the ears even when having my hair in braids and moving violently.



Så nu kan jeg med sindsro linke til      - - 👵 - -    It is done! I can be linking to
