Blomster-vitaminer / Flower vitamins
At der er georginer betyder selvfølgelig, at sommeren snart pakker sammen. (Ikke at lige præcis denne sommer vil blive savnet for det gode vejr, altså!) Det er selvfølgelig lidt trist, men sådan er det jo....
I don't buy flowers very often. But yesterday these dahlias were calling my name when I passed the corner flower shop. Very pretty, don't you think?
The presence of dahlias is a sign of summer packing up, getting ready to move on. (Well, this summer in particular didn't do a lot in the sunshine-department!) It's a little sad, but that's the way it is.
I nat var en usædvanligt nat på arbejde. Jeg blev ringet op efter 2 timers søvn, og resten af natten gik så med nogle opkald, lidt spil på telefonen samt en HEL DEL "Sov nu! Du har gæster. Du skal være frisk! SOV!"-tanker. Der sjovt nok ikke hjalp meget..... I morges var det vildt hyggeligt at komme hjem til frisklavet kaffe og et dækket bord. På vej hjem kom jeg forbi en meget fin københavner-nordisk-autentisk bager. Der var ET brød i butikken og nogle boller af den samme dej (men de var i gang med at bage mere, vil jeg lige sige!), og det smagte meget sundt.... Til gengæld duftede butikken af rigtigt mel og dej, hvilket var en fornøjelse!
While I was working this evening and night, I had visitors. My newly-wed nephew and his Missus (she would probably kill me if she knew I was calling her that!) got the key at my neighbor's and slept here.
This night was unusually quiet at work. I had a phone call after 2 hours of sleep, and the rest of the night was spent answering a few phone calls, playing "Bejewelled" on my cellphone and spending a LOT of time thinking "now - go to sleep! You have visitors at home. You should be well rested. Now SLEEP!"... Strangely enough, I didn't get very sleepy.....
It was extremely nice going home in the morning to see the coffee brewed and the table set. On the way home I passed a very Copenhagen-authentic-Nordic-like bakery. They had ONE bread in the shop and some buns made from the same dough (but they were busy making more bread). It tasted very healthy..... The shop was really nice, though, smelling like flour and dough, which was a real pleasure.
