December 29, 2011

Christmas days in our home has been truly wonderful but not quite as quiet and relaxed as I had hoped for. Many unfortunate bumps on the way like; a winter flu, a computer breakdown, unexpected shifts in the shop, oh and a dishwasher breakdown including a mild flood in our kitchen.

Things don’t always work out the way you want them to huh?

Anyway, we had a perfect Christmas ewe party, Vilja is just happy happy happy and we still have a visit to my parents place at Samsø to come, YAY.

December dinner

Warm fish soup on a dark december day.

New Brinja dresses

December 2, 2011

One of my absolute favourite things is my job, even though Anders always tells me not to bring work home, and I try not to (I have a problem, I just cant stop) it sometimes happens anyway. Last weekend a bunch of new Brinja dresses arrived which meant a whole lot of organising.

Combined with a brilliant red wine and some cheese/sausage/olive-snacks, it was a perfect way to spend a Saturday night!

Ps: The dresses are for this winter and in my humble opinion they are pretty darn good. I’ll get back to you on that!

Dinner time

November 17, 2011

Anders made a pie yesterday. Broccoli, salmon, asparaguses and garlic. Uhm!

It’s Sunday

November 6, 2011

Vilja is at her grandparents and Anders and I are adjusting to the rare quietness of being home with no plans and no Vilja around. Next up; a Woody Allan movie!

Today was…

October 30, 2011

…a visit to the zoo, lots of book reading, radio listening, colourful snacks and reorganising the wardrobe.


October 28, 2011

My brother took me to a Lautrec exhibit yesterday that made my heart beat faster.

And he brought me home made cinnamon cakes (which is my all time favourite kind of cake) isn’t it marvellous?

Ps: yes; what a foggy foggy day!

From my parents garden: tomatoes, beetroot, parsley, thyme, salvia, squash, tarragon and 12 freshly laid eggs.

From the local dairy : cheese and cream.

And fanallly: two beautiful hand knitted (by ‘Granny O’) wool jackets, a green dress and a vest for Vilja and cousin April.

New friends

July 11, 2011

Vilja is so good at making new friends. She met this little girl at a restaurant in the Hartz and she just ran towards her, gave her a BIG hug and then they played for one and a half hour straight -that’s the way to do it!!!
