The storm

This past weekend, we had a crazy storm that the reporters called “Egon” here in Denmark! (Yep we do call our storms names, and it’s a bit stupid, cause they are not major like the ones you see in the states!)

But we did have fallen trees, as you see here, and we did have two drowned people, due to flooding and we also had tiles from the roofs flying all over! In Denmark you pretty much see this as horrible, we don’t have major disasters, so this storm was one of the worse ones. The wind was pretty rough, the rain was horrible and bridges all over Denmark closed for a record long time! We have never had them closed for such a long time.

The sea crept up on our docks and up the streets, people couldn’t get home cause of the trains having to stop their regular arrival and departure times – it was a mess!

It’s still strong outside, but at least it’s better than this past weekend, Friday and Saturday was a complete disaster! Sunday was rough too, but it was a bit better and today, Monday was also stormy, but not with the strength it had that weekend at all, luckily!

Hope you guys had some better weather than we had here in Denmark this entire weekend! I just hope that the storm will quiet down and I can go and get my garden plot ready for the spring time! I have missed being in that garden so much, and I can’t wait till the weather clears up!

So have yourself a merry little Christmas now..

 

Did a lot this few weeks, took care of my sisters dog, with my friend Jane, and baked and made oatmeal balls, had my dining room table decorated and am counting the days till Christmas eve, missing my grandmother a lot, she was always a big part of Christmas, and her not being here has left quite a gap in my life. She was the only grandparent I ever knew, so it hurt loosing her back then. I will manage, but I miss her, every day.

Have been cleaning a lot lately, been up early, and to bed early too. I feel pretty active and productive now, before this I was a bit of a night owl, and didn’t sleep much. I was tired constantly and it sucked.

My mom has a birthday just around the corner, 8th Dec, so I have been out, finding her a present, which wasn’t easy! We are going to have a really nice dinner with her, and celebrate her, with style! (As she deserves!)

Right now, I can’t sleep, the storm outside is pretty rough, been a long day, with very stormy weather, and a lot of ice cold rain and wind.. It has been one of those days, where you just stay indoors, and watch movies, drink coffee and eat sweets.. So I did exactly that! Watched a pretty good movie on Netflix, which is my new drug by the way! Its amazing.

My dog Sammi has been a pain today, he was so restless today, and wanted to play around a lot.. Guess the weather bored him, and we had my friends dog Sisse here too, and they enjoyed each others company a lot today, especially when Sammi was so bored.

Been cleaning a bit, while listening to some music, was nice to get some stuff in order, and it looks neat here, feels pretty good to have a clean home! I am normally a messy person, who doesn’t clean like a white whirlwind like my mom, I am relaxed and like it a little messy actually. But lately, I have felt pretty damn good while cleaning and putting things away, and having it neat and tidy! Hm am I growing up? I sure hope not! *YUCK*

 

Keep warm and cozy out there people!

A storm is rising…

In northern Denmark, the sea looks like this, and the foam from the sea, floads the docks and at first sight, it looks like snow, but it isent. It will spread along the danish land, and soon it will be in Copenhagen, and I just hate when the weather acts up, it just makes me feel so tiny. Life seems so small compared to the force of nature. I hope Copenhagen wont get too torn up by this storm, and that my parents house pulls through. Though our roof is very well build, and the house is old, but in good condition. Here the wind is all still.. But isent everything just still, right before a storm? Its so damn cold outside, but it feels creepy, when everything is so quiet, like the weather wants to creep up on you, when you least expects it.. *Brrhhh* I am gonna go make a cup of coco, and sit by the fire. The reporters in the northern Denmark are sure making alot of money, standing in that storm, getting covered in all the foam from the sea, trying not to tip over – and I sure aint jealous! Glad it aint me…. 🙂
