Jubilæum og en gave / Anniversary and a gift
I celebrated an anniversary yesterday! Twenty-five years as an aunt!!!!!! Of course I used the Danish flag for marking this special day, even though it was only my ears that were spiced up...... My nephew did get a "congratulation" from me, too.
Vi gik hen for at se elefant-unge. Den var desværre puttet i seng, men vi fik fornøjelsen af en elefant, der stod med bagdelen til og rokkede. Lur mig, om ikke den skulle til at føde! Vi får se, men den lignede meget livagtigt én med veer, og dens mave blev meget spids på skiftevis den ene og den anden side. Spændende!
Later I had visitors. For once, my worked ended a little earlier, and I got ready in time. My brother, my sister-in-law and 3 youngsters came and brought this gift. The hair/fur thing was a bit harsh and weird. But turned out to be alpaca! My niece had found it for me. I guess the word is "Thank you"? (I don't spin, but I really don't think it would become the biggest shawl seen......) The pretty candle-holder/cup/vase was also a gift. In a very pretty green shade!
We went to see the elephant-baby. Unfortunately, it was asleep in-doors, but we had the pleasure of watching an elephant, turning the back towards us, standing there rocking. Surely looked like it was going into labor! We'll see, but it very much looked like someone having contractions, and the abdomen got very pointy on either side every now and then. Very exciting!
