lol...no, I hadn't thought of clothing...lol...I pretty much live in black myself, didn't give that a thought. I was thinking of interiors, house things for color in winter.

And pronounce them! We couldn't do it when we were there, although I think we got Reykjavík right at least!

Kelli - nope, shorts and sandals would have been quite chilly on that particular day, the wind was really cold ..... ;-)

Frank (and Sue! :-) ) - actually I think spelling in Icelandic is pretty easy compared to english .... it's more straightforward, each letter has it's own sound and you write the words as you say them .... It's much more complicated in English .... words that sound the same but are spelled differently and letters with different sounds depending on what word they're in ;-) Rolling on the floor laughing The only complicated rule in Icelandic spelling is the I and Y because they both sound the same and there are complicated rules as to when you write y instead of i .... otherwise it's not that difficult ... really ... Rolling on the floor laughing But we do have nice long words like the now infamous Eyjafjallajökull (Island Mountain Glacier) because we squish the components all into one word .... for instant Documentary Filmmaker would be Heimildarmyndargerðarmaður ... try to say that one fast :rofl:

now grammar is an entirely different story ...... ;-)

Holy cow, Harry Carey! You have some long words. And umlauts too, do you call them that? They must change the sound of the letter?
When will school be over, how long is the school year, I mean.

Sherry - I can't say that we do use brighter colors, but we use candles a lot.

Thank you Caroline :-)

Is the first frost getting close or do you still have some time yet?

Hopefully about a month until the first frost. It's usually around Sept. 20th ... but we've had frost early September ... fortunately that's rare... I'm hoping this warm summer will lead to a warm fall as well ..... although for the first time the roses aren't loaded with buds that need to flower before frost, most of them are finished! Never, ever happened before.

You may have discussed this earlier, but did you say that you do not or cannot grow tomatoes? I would think they wouldn't do very well there. Here, they do pretty much nothing in the winter.

Oh Yeah! I'd be using a whole lot of candles. Candles must be a big selling item there. Are they produced there?

Kelli - no we can't grow tomatoes outside. They're grown commercially in greenhouses though. Much better than the imported ones.

Sherry - yes, we use lots of candles during winter, not at all during the bright summer months. So, they're a winter item here ;-)
