Men altså - nu er bordet nærmest tomt, som I ser!
Jeg tænker, at mit bord må være min dametaske. Det er vel cirka samme udvalg af "vigtige" ting. God weekend!
I'm having visitors today. For lunch. My brother and sister-in-law. It's a bit hectic to get everything in order - it was my first week at work, and last night I was TOTALLY exhausted.
But anyway - now the table is close to empty, as you can see!
I guess my table is a bit like a lady's purse. The same selection of "important" stuff. Have a nice weekend!

Det var ekstra fedt at tage en (ny) antistoftest og se, at den var blevet positiv! Al den bekymring der var før. Det er virkelig dejligt at det bare er overstået!!!!!!!!!
Til gengæld har jeg faktisk købt håndsprit. Helt skørt, men det har jeg. Jeg vil ikke slæbe noget med på fingrene til andre - selv om jeg jo faktisk ikke havde smittet nogen. (Så det er jo dobbelt skørt.)
The first week at work is almost done. While Denmark had some extra days off this week, Sweden didn't, so I just went ahead and started working as usual. I just loved seeing my colleagues again and getting in touch with the patients. I do love my work, you know!
It was extra great to take a(nother) antibody-test and seeing how it was positive! All the worry there was before. It is so nice that I'm over it!!!!!!!!
Then I actually went and bought disinfection for my bag. Totally crazy, but I did. I don't want to carry stuff around to others on my fingers - although I didn't give the virus to others. (Double crazy, really.)
Jeg har stadig ikke haft en patient med coronavirus på arbejde. Skulle jeg få en, vil jeg iklæde mig samme mundering som den lille pingvin OG være glad for at jeg har haft det.
Nu er det snart weekend. Glæder mig. Denne her uge føltes lidt lang. Det hjælper ikke at togene kun kører en gang i timen når jeg skal hjem og at man skal skifte i Malmö. 2 gange denne uge er jeg først kommet med det næste tog, og det er bare SÅ surt at stå der og vente en hel time! Næste uge bliver der 20 minutters drift igen, hvilket jeg glæder mig virkelig meget til!
A lot is written about Sweden and coronavirus. My experience is that they do quite a lot to prevent infection. Even though society is up and running. But on the down-side, not many people get tested. I do hope they start that bit soon!
I still haven't had a patient with coronavirus at work. If I get one, I will dress up like the little penguin here AND be happy that I did have the virus.
So now it's almost weekend. Can't wait. This week felt so long. It doesn't help that the trains to Denmark only runs once an hour when I'm going home, and that I have to change in Malmö. Twice this week I've missed my train and had to take the next, and it just SUCKS to hang around waiting an entire hour! From next week, they will run every 20 minutes again, which will be great!

It took me 3 evenings, but now I sewed the ends of all the squares. In total, 10 grams of ends. Looks pretty with all the colors!
I would like the colors to be nicely distributed in the blanket, so I tried a new method. The squares were sorted according to color. More or less.
And afterwards, I divided them in 4 piles. So now there are about the same colors in every pile, and each pile will be a quater of the blanket, 6x6 squares. It will be tomorrow. I wonder, how long time it will take to finish this blanket?

Nå. Men inden jeg skulle på arbejde, VILLE jeg være færdig med firkanterne! Jeg ville også være færdig med at male bjælker i taget over terrassen, så søndag gik med først at male i 6 timer og derefter hækle i cirka 3 timer. Gæt selv, om jeg havde en mærkelig følelse i højre hånd mandag morgen.....
Men jeg nåede det! Alle firkanter er klar, og jeg har også nået at hæfte ender på knap halvdelen. Når resten er hæftet, skal jeg finde ud af hvordan farverne skal kombineres. Det bliver spændende!
This week is my first week at work. It was SO lovely seeing everyone yesterday! I loved talking to my patients again, and I was reminded how I really wasn't as ill as I could have been. Only 4 weeks for real. My colleagues daughter is on her tenth week, and a patient had a burning sensation in his throat for 6-7 weeks, coughed a lot and had difficulty sleeping.
Well. But before going back to work, I WANTED to get the squares done! I also wanted to be done with painting the wooden beams in the roof over the terrace, so on Sunday, first I painted for 6 hours and then crocheted for about 3 hours. Take a wild guess if my right hand was feeling really weird on Monday morning.....
But I made it! All squares are done, and I even sewed in the ends of almost half of them. When the rest are done, I'll find out how the colors will be combined. It will be fun!

Vi bliver i temaet og i dag er det så en enhjørningehårbøjle.
Den vil helt sikkert klæde alle!
Mønsteret finder du her.
Yesterday, I wrote of unicorn-yarn.
We stay with the same theme, and so today it is a unicorn headband.
It will surely look great on everybody!
The pattern can be found here.

The last days of my week off were used for going to Aarhus, visiting family. And the new yarn shop that opened in Brabrand. It's called Genuina and is a really nice little shop with café, yarn and ceramics. Very cozy!
Jeg købte de to nye babystrik hæfter af Lene Holme Samsøe, hvilket jeg havde planlagt hjemmefra. Desuden var der det fineste, håndfarvede mohairgarn, OG en strikket model hvor det var sat sammen med noget lyserødt garn til en pigebluse i enhjørningefarver.
We got around looking at yarn and had coffee, and my niece really enjoyed an hour without kids. Looking at stuff is better without little kids!
I bought the 2 new baby knit booklets by Lene Holme Samsøe, as planned from home.
Furthermore, they had the prettiest, hand-dyed mohair, AND a knit model combining it with rose-colored yarn for a girl's sweater in unicorn-colors.
Udover garn nåede vi at hoppe trampolin, spise kaj-kager, spise pizza og gå på eventyr. Det var så hyggeligt!
So I bought a bit of that! It was approved directly by the girls (who are well-behaved).
Apart from the yarn, we jumped on the trampoline, ate frog-cakes, had pizza and were out on adventures. It was so nice!
So today I went hunting in my closets and found the yarn I knew was there. (I even found a lot of other skeins that shouldn't lie in the basement. I love yarn!) Pretty, rose wool, which is PERFECT for a unicorn sweater! Or two. Oh, it's so pretty.......

Min niece på 23 kom på besøg da hun skulle til Sjælland. Hun så mit hus for første gang og var passende begejstret.
Jeg skulle til frisør, så vi gik en temmelig lang tur på Frederiksberg og kom bl.a. forbi Royal Copenhagen, hvor vi gik ind og kiggede outlet. Nu HELT uden turister, for en gangs skyld!
Det var virkelig hyggeligt. Deres porcelæn er superfint, selv om det nok ikke lige kommer i mit køkken, selv ikke som anden-sortering....... Men vi mødte George Jensen!
Hun blev et par dage og blev tvangsindlagt til at se Hercule Poirot mens jeg hæklede. Det gik godt.
My 23 year old niece came visiting, since she was going to Zealand. She saw my house for the first time and really liked it.
I was going to the hairdresser, so we took a rather long walk on Frederiksberg and passed by Royal Copenhagen, where we checked out the outlet. Now completely without tourists, for once!
It was so nice. Their China is so pretty, although I don't think it will enter my kitchen, second-class or whatever..... But we met George Jensen!
She stayed for a few days and was forced to watch Hercule Poirot while I crocheted. It went well.

Håber meget, at jeg når det. Der venter nogle togture, og jeg håber det hjælper!
The squares are here now, lying in piles with 12 in each. Things have been a bit slow these past few days, but I'm down to 21 left now, and that's exactly 7 a day.
I do hope I'll make it. I have some train rides, and I hope it helps!

Det er jo helt vildt når det kan være en stor oplevelse at køre ind på Hovedbanegården, men det var det altså. Sjælland er en helt anden ø!
This Sunday, after almost 4 weeks at home, I went on my first trip. I was really excited if I would be too tired and how it would be going this far away from home!
It's insane when it's a thing to arrive at the central station, but it was huge! Zealand is actually an entirely different island!
I was going to the 6 years birthday that I missed. AND see the newest generation - 3 tiny little kittens who hadn't opened their eyes but did know to call for their mum. Their mum, who REALLY wanted some company when people come to see the kittens. Having babies is hard.
Det var skønt at se noget familie igen og denne her sidste uge (min planlagte friuge) skal gå med at se noget familie, min frisør og min tandlæge. Nå ja. Og med at male og hækle.
It was a dolphin-birthday (her fourth. I did think that it ment that she turned 24?), so we had a really nice dolphin-cake.
I loved seeing family again, and this last week (my planned week off) will be used for seeing family, my hairdresser and my dentist. Oh well. And with painting and crocheting.

Lige nu hedder det så 7 firkanter om dagen. Ret vildt, og det tager noget tid, men planen holder, ser det ud som, og jeg er stadig helt vild med farverne.
I really, really want to be done with the squares before I start work again, so I just crochet and crochet. Not, that I love crocheting, but just because I really would love to get this blanket done! Afterwards, there is still lots to do, crocheting the squares together and doing the edge, and I do know it also takes time, but on the other hand - when I'm that far, I WILL finish it. I know myself.
Right now, I make 7 squares a day. Really crazy, and it takes a lot of time, but it looks like I'm sticking to the plan, and I still just love the colors.

Der var en da jeg flyttede ind, og hver gang jeg kom, løb den væk bag vaskemaskinen. Pludselig forsvandt den, formentlig døde den, men nu er der en ny.
Jeg synes det er hyggeligt. Især, hvis jeg lige kan overraske den. Dagens opskrift er på en lille husedderkop.
There is a spider in my basement (okay. I guess there are a few!) behind my washing machine.
There was one when I moved in, and every time I entered, it ran and hid behind the washer. Suddenly, it disappeared, probably dead, but now there is a new.
I do think it's nice. Especially, if I manage to surprise it. Today's pattern is for a little house spider.

I mit lillebitte højbed har ærtespirerne stukket de første blade op. Jeg glæder mig til at kunne gå og spise nogle ærter derude - helt friske og uden at man skal betale.
In the garden, things are slowly happening. Lovely things!
In my very tiny raised bed, the pea sprouts are showing the first leaves. I'm looking forward to going out there, eating some peas - totally fresh and without having to pay.
Der står stadig en oppe i vinduet, mens den tredje er flyttet hjemmefra - over i Ann Jeanets drivhus.
Jeg TROR nok det er cherry-tomater. Godt nok amerikanske - så måske er de store?
One of the three tomato plants moved outside. I started with the bigger one - just to see if it will survive. So far, it looks like it enjoys the sun and rain!
There is still one left up in the window, while the third one moved away from home - over in Ann Jeanet's green-house. I DO think it's cherry tomatoes. American, though. Maybe they are big?
I also have some long term planning. Last year, I planted some plum pits in a garden pot. One of them looks like it has plans for growing up. Of course it will be quite a few years before I can pick plums from this one, but it's fun to watch it grow!
