October in the Northern Hemisphere

I really love October and its freezing mornings. A tired face will easily disappear on the way to work as the air is so cold and crisp (free facelift haha!).
I think we are extremely lucky to have the four different seasons and the weather that follows it. Though it sometimes can be a bit too much rain here in the south during the winter.

However, this met me an early morning last week. I just had to walk out onto the terrace to take a picture of the lovely colors and take a deep morning breath to wake up. Happy October everyone! Some of you are going towards spring. That is a lovely time too!

Red Pearl Twist bracelet

A new red Pearl Twist bracelet is born. This time a more wild and crazy one than its little sister. The sister has now gone to a new home so it was about time to get another in.

This one is made of round and teardrop shaped glass beads. For more info, have a look here.

Tommy Tokyo & Starving For My Gravy

Tommy Tokyo & Starving For My Gravy was playing at our local pub "Kick" on Wednesday.
My friend, Linda, was the one who knew all about his music and was kind enough to ask me to come along.
I hadn't heard about him and his band before so I didn't really know what it was all about.

The singer, whose real name is Tommy Lorange Ottosen (born in 1971), is a father of four from Fredrikstad, Norway.
He learned to play a guitar in 1995 and started his first band fours years later.
I thought this was an Irish pub band and was very surprised when I realized he was a fellow Norwegian.

He is known for his lyrics and voice. Listen and be amused over the way he play with words.

Check in to listen to his music.
