Shhh...

Still no time to blog.
Also, my face feels like it has exploded. I guess it's high season for whatever the fuck i'm allergic to?
But otherwise i'm good, although my brain could use some peace and quiet and my body could use a good run or something.


I wish i was going here soon, minus the part where it would probably suck for my hay fever or whatever


Today i went shopping and lunching with Sarah and Wendy.
It was pretty rad.
We had a shit ton of cake, and i bought a pink dress and yellow pants.
Apparently i am 12... or maybe i just wasn't there the day they sent out the "everyone must wear black" memo?
Oops.

I can't even...

I obviously haven't had the time to be here. Obviously.
I've wanted to, so bad, but sometimes non-internet life gets in the way.
You all know this.
But it's all been for good and fun reasons, i assure you.

In short, i've been unusually social.
When you have a shop, you have to be social during work hours, but when your shop has guest artists, and those artists also happens to be your friends, it's a 24 hour thing. Well, not quite, but you know what i mean.
But really, it's been so much fun having so many people at the shop, putting on an art show, hanging out after work every day, being silly and eating junk food and drinking milkshakes. Just good times. And they're not even over yet, in fact, more friends arrived yesterday, so i'm seeing flea markets, Tivoli, take out and good hangs in my near future.

I have a burlesque party post planned, so hopefully i'll soon again have a quiet moment like this one, a bit of me-time before everyone comes over for yet another cozy movie night, and i'll be able to tell you all about it. No, still no Eyes Wide Shut stuff, Nick!



Copenhagen had a wonderful, much needed mini heatwave and i took full advantage


I even went swimming once, and even though i was alone and the water was a little chilly, it was beyond wonderful

Sightseeing on Monday with our buddy Matt from California

We took him antiquing too

Park break at Hacienda where they kept playing the same awful song over and over again.... we didn't stay long

Nyhavn, a Copenhagen must on a sunny day

From our party on Saturday night, read a little more about it over on my other blog

 And a brief insta-roundup
(1. Harbor bath, the not-trendy side, that is 2. Nyhavn 3. Quiet morning 4. My husband is so fucking hot, and also, horribly addicted to bubble tea 5. Lucifer did not enjoy Sunday brunch as much as he appears to 6. Street fair find 7. Fancy sneakers, fancy socks 8. Portrait overload!)

Wanting more

We've had a pretty wonderful weekend.
The Copenhagen Burlesque party on Saturday was even more fun than last time, in spite of a rather dubious-looking new location.
But i'll get back to that when i have pictures. Not that i have many, cause unlike the previous times, we didn't have a getting-ready-party or a photoshoot. But it was fun!

I've recovered from yesterdays massive hangover, although it took most of today as well.
At least we had Sunday to just chill, watch Stargate, eat junk food, and hang out with friends.
I guess the hangover could have contributed to my mood today... not that i'm in a bad mood, i've just been way too focused on all the things i want, that lie just beyond (or in some cases, way beyond) my reach.
This is not unusual for me, some days it just feels worse than others, you know?
Maybe you don't, maybe you're perfectly content? I hope so.
But man... i'm being super vague, aren't i?
It's not envy, not focused envy anyway. It's more "want" and "need" and "everything would be better if...".
And it's not about objects. If anything, i'm a little obsessed with ridding myself of those!
In any case, i need to focus on the things that i do have, instead of the things that i don't.
Yeah, i need to try, anyway.

These pictures are from late July, probably right before our last trip to Berlin.
I like this film better than the Lomo one. I don't remember which one it is, though!



 My tomato plant is much taller now
 
 Lucifer is feeling better, by the way, but i'm still taking him in for a checkup tomorrow

 Outside the flea market

B&W

Danish essentials

Lake walking



I need to start working out more often.
I've been slacking so much the past few months, and it's not just that i can see that i'm not in shape, it's the feeling of being out of touch with my body. 
I gotta find a way to become one again... or at least be on friendly terms!

A picture for the weekend

It would appear that Lucifer,who just got better, is sick again.
And poor Allan has a cold.
And well, i don't feel so hot either.
Friday night... woo?

So here's a picture to cheer me up, and maybe you as well?


Snoopy the Golden Retriever after a swim last Friday


I got my pictures back yesterday and most of them, especially the ones from Bisserup around the time of my dad's birthday, are pretty great.
But the Berlin ones? Ehh, not so much.
I didn't know i had a Lomo slide film in there and, well, they're pretty grainy.
Fun for toy camera stuff, but a little disappointing when you're expecting something nicer.
And all i see when i look at most of them is what they could have been.
I guess that's what you get for not really caring what kind of film you put in your camera!

But hey, the dog picture turned out good, so at least there's that!

Coming to an end

We still still have one day left of our little staycation, and i'll be sad to see it over.
Well, not super sad, cause i do need to get back to work, but with a busy month ahead of us, i can't help but stress out a little at the thought. Just a little, though.

On Friday i went off on my own. And i actually left the city.
Allan had to paint, and my whole family was in the country together, so i decided to go see them, just for a day.
I took the train down there, sans Lucifer, for once, and had a great day, walking with my mom, relaxing in the garden with my sweet nephew, and of course, boiling a skull. Yeah, i may have smelled like corpse riding home on the train at night, but there weren't a lot of people on it anyway.
I don't particularly like going on longer trips with public transportation, but it's good for me to challenge my anxiety once in a while, and of course it went just fine.

On Saturday, Nick came to visit. I mean, he's here for the whole month, but he arrived yesterday.
Me and Allan decided to go on a surprise spy mission  to the airport to pick him up, and it worked... a lot better than expected too. Our super spy disguises were so good, Nick actually didn't recognize us!
Or Lucifer, cause his disguise was pretty epic too. Success!
Later that night, we went out for cocktails at a tiki bar (yeah, Copenhagen actually has one of those), because it was our friend Martin's birthday. I haven't been out in a while and it was fun! Brief though, cause we needed to get back to Nick and Lucifer.
Social gatherings are on the anxiety list too, so that was another little trip outside my comfort zone. Yup, two in one weekend. Go me!

Today is full on day off. Coffee and homemade brunch and ice cream. The whole thing.
I'm hanging out with Lucifer, who's been really sick for a few days (but he's doing much better) and Allan is in the other room, doing computer works.

Oh, the other room, i forgot this part!
So earlier this week, our staycation turned into Redecorathon 2012 when we got sick of having my grandfathers old closet standing around the apartment in pieces. It had only been standing here unassembled for a year, but still!
So we assembled that, took the old one apart and put it up for sale. And while we were at it, did the same with our bed, cause we've hated it since forever. And once the bedroom was, well, nice actually, we moved on to the work room, which is now also a pretty nice place to hang out.
It was a lot of work, and a lot of things ended up in the trash, but i feel so much better about our home now.
Like, not ashamed to have people over, even!
I still want to move, badly, but there's no reason not to wait in style, you know?
I don't know why it took us so long to realize that.


In Bisserup, walking with my mom... so many birds, you can't even tell

Loveliest weather

My brother Tobias and his son Gilbert... and Carla, of course

Another one of Gilbert, who's pretty much the sweetest baby

I caught the sunset before heading back to the city

Being all incognito at the airport...

Instagoodness!
(1. Found some prints we're getting framed, can't wait to get them back 2. Got a little coffee table for the work room, but we took it out for coffee first 3. A table type thing i built 4. A fantastic picture of my grandpa 5. Bisserup 6. Gilbert! 7. Lucifer the spy! 8. Agent Allan and Agent Flora, staking out the arrivals 9. Martin getting his Zombie on... 10. We put this up today... the work room is still a work in progress, but it's looking pretty good!)

A larger view of our epic disguises... i think the mustaches are a nice touch


Allan likes Stargate SG1 now.
I love that he's into it, but on the other hand, this was my alone show, so now what?
We recently got netflix, so today i'm watching Supernatural.
It's scary, though!
Why didn't anyone warn me?
