I hope everyone out there has some love to share today--whether it's romantic or otherwise. Love really does make the world a nicer place.
I received a lovely set of solje, which is a traditional style of Norwegian jewelry made from silver with tiny spoons dangling. The necklace I was given is similar to this piece.
Legend has it that wearing solje protects one from illness and trolls. I'm amused to report that, apart from a mild headache caused by the impending weather, I'm feeling fine. Also, only one government wonk has strolled past my desk this morning, so apparently the solje is working perfectly on both accounts.
