The Iceland Weather Report

Saturday, September 9th, 2006

There are two blogs I read regularly, that is when I have time to read and not feel guilty. Those two are Yarn Harlot and Iceland Weather Report. I’ve spoken about Stephanie’s Yarn Harlot blog before, so even those of you who read this because you are ukulele people have heard of her… it is definitely a knititng blog.

Then there is the Iceland Weather Report. I have no idea how I found it, but I love this blog. The woman who writes it (Alda, she calls herself YT/Yours Truly) was born in Iceland but has lived in several countries, notably Canada for much of her growing up years. She now is back in Iceland. She’s a writer, and she can see her own culture with the eyes of an insider or an outsider, depending on the needs of the day.

I’m a week behind visiting her blog (at least) but when I went back to read this morning (waiting for the teakettle to boil) there is a great set of photos of Þingvellir, a beautiful and fascinating place (those interested in geology, go there and read more, those interested in pretty pictures, follow). And again this week, more beautiful photos of Iceland.

I just love this blog. Maybe you will, too.
