Asia, here I come

So, I've been abscent from this blog of mine. Ever since the start of this year, I've felt unmotivated to make updates. Spending the time forming words, unloading pictures from the camera and get them here in posts and everything else that comes with blogging, just didn't feel inspiring anymore.

Add to that, a long winter that wasn't good for pictures, a sore body (from two falls when biking), a university class in Creative Writing and tiredness, and you get more of the picture.

Now, when female bloggers "disappear" and come back after random posting for a couple of months they often come back to announcing that they are either 1) pregnant or 2) working on a book as they've gotten a deal. I'm doing neither of those. (Which being me is 1) just as it's supposed to be and 2) a bummer but I haven't tried getting one...)

I'm still pottering around with my knitting. I'm still by the sewing machine from time to time. I read books and see my bookclub friends every 6th week. I make my assignments for the Creative Writing-class and I'm enjoying it. But it's more time consuming than I though it'd be.

And.

I'm going to Asia for two weeks early this summer. For the first time in my life. I'm combining a couple of days of vacation with days of working. Most of the time will be work. I know I'll be dead tired when I come home after 16 days away, but it really feels like a once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity and I couldn't let it pass me by.
