So it begins.. again..!

It’s spring! Except for a few spring flowers there’s not much spring anywhere. That home-made cover is now serving as a cozy raincoat. We have to protect those kidneys and even though it looks ridiculous she’s happy wearing it. It stays in place and doesn’t move anywhere. It protects her and she knows. But back […]

Unwelcome passenger..

That’s usually how I feel about the world – but this bit is not about me. It’s about a little critter that doesn’t pay rent, who aren’t welcome and causes worries and war in this (and many other) household. It’s cold as *beep* and the health hasn’t been on the same track as me. I’m […]

Eggscuse me..

Moxxi likes challenges and learning new things. Yesterday she did both. I taught her the difference between right and left paw so now when I say “right” or “left” she’ll lift the corresponding paw and get a reward. How cool is that? Also the challenge was “put a raw egg in the dogs mouth and […]

What she’s made for..

Moxxi is in heaven. She’s sooo happy and wants to go outside all the time. The howling and extreme cold wind slowed down and the snow came. On our part of the island that is – the rest of the island has no snow at all. It’s still cold but as long as the wind […]

Snow! ..ish..

Yesterday.. Breaking news.. It didn’t rain!! Well not until the afternoon but still. It was dry and the sun peaked through. Imagine to be happy just for that? It was almost euphoria. That’s how long it’s been grey and rainy. So Moxxi and I was outside for a good deal longer than usual – she […]

Afraid in the dark..

Wilbur sat up with a jerk. He’d just moved in and needed a little rest but then he fell asleep. What was is he’d heard? He was sleeping peacefully and was dreaming but then there was this sound that didn’t belong in the dream. What had made that sound? Stomp!! … Stomp!! It sounded like […]

Merry Christmas 2020

Made the last batch of “vaniljekranse”. Directly translated it’s: vanilla wreaths and I’m going to stick with that and here’s why: I tried to find out what it translated into and “Danish butter cookies” is a thing yes, but it’s not this. There’re no almonds and no star stape and those has to be there, […]

Ready..

A lot have chanced this year but one thing hasn’t. It’s still Christmas no matter what. It looks very different than most are used to. And then there is this place. Everything is as usual. The house is decorated. The gifts are wrapped and almost ready. The ribbons are not going to be added until […]

Christmas Story 2020 part 4..

Fourth Sunday of Advent Glimmerheart was on his way to Santa’s office. He had a box that jumped around making it difficult to hold it. Lila saw him and ran over to help. Santa looked up from his lists when Glimmerheart and Lila came into the office. Glimmerheart said: “Please summon and seal. It’s urgent!” […]

Getting there..

🎶 På loftet sidder nissen med sin julegrød… 🎶 Oops.. wrong song. Heck! Wrong language! Where’s the switch?! Looking around in the mess that is my workspace. It looks like Santa’s workshop but don’t tell him – I don’t want to work at the Northpole. Do you know how difficult it is to get a […]
