I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it




..... and I feel obliged just to mention this fact of life
Stormy weather and not the day for out-door activites. My 2 weeks in peace are about to end. Tomorrow we set off to visit my dad for a little longer stay before heading home .....
Seems as if this wireless router of mine works pretty okay most of time. However, I'm not satisfied with the speed. That could be for 2 reasons:
1) Connectivitity in general due to weather conditions
2) Expectations set to 'high' instead of 'slow'
Will continue the test just to make sure if 1 or 2 should be announced to be the winner.
For the past 2 days, I've amuzed myself with 'Hercule Poirot'. I really like that fellow. The plots are secondary - it's the environments and the characters that's dazzling me .... A bit sad to end this fine relationship ....
No pictures available that I want to show you, so I simply borrowed a pretty flower from Google expressing this first day of the Julian summer ....

Feel free to disagree

Stormy weather and grey sky. Not much to do here under these circumstances. - A nap might do the trick.
Today I realized that I haven't used any make-up for the past 2 weeks. We're having a dinnerparty tonight, and I'm seriously considering to skip the make-up and just be myself. I know make-up gives the false feeling of youth and pretty-ness (?????), but I'm not sure I care too much about that right now. ....


I intend to try out the new Google+ to see what it is. It's difficult to have an opinion about anything you haven't tried. - Anyway, social medias are interesting experiences from a philosophical mindset. You can measure your own popularity directly by counting the 'likes' or on the number of comments you receive. - I don't think social medias are for anyone with a low self-esteem or for suicidals. .... It's like blogging. If you expect hundreds of people to read your blog every day, you'll be dissapointed. That only happens if you're famous. - Blogging is not something you should do for the sake of others. Blogging is something you should do because you need to get something out of your system ....

Happiness depends upon ourselves

....or something like that ......


A bit quiet day .... Cloudy but warm. Thunderstorm on it's way. Waiting .....
Meanwhile checking the news about Greece. I don't understand what the fuzz is all about. The Greek voters have elected their irresponsible politicians themselves. As long as everything went well, the voters continued to elect the same irresponsible politicians while enjoying the good life. Now there's a bill that has to be paid. Which is quite right. You really can't expect the outside world to pay for your party!!!!!
So stop yealling, break down and move on my dears!
No plans for the evening .... except for a short walk to the beach. I'm soooo lazy these days .... Feel great being that. I've got all the time in the world. .... Though missing Tiger. I'm gonna get him a vet certificate and bring him with me on future vacations. I'm sure he misses me too :P

Is this chicken what I have, or is this fish? I know it's tuna, but it says 'Chicken of the Sea'

Drove through the military exercise area to get a delicious meal for lunch. The soldiers have been playing the war game throughout the day. You get used to the sounds .......



... And yes, I ought to present a couple of pics to prove above. The problem is, I could hear them, but never got a glimpse of them.
Winds from East and around 28 C ... but I tend not to swim, even though it is tempting. However the streams are strong and I'm not a very good swimmer. This landlubber prefers solid ground under her feet.
Btw - I'm glad I didn't rent one of the overrated expensive summer cottages at the seaside. Imagine paying 12000 in hard cash and be forced to listen to noisy tanks and gunshots all day. How depressing!!!!!!
- I'll tell you what: I give you a picture of their cows (apologize for the bumpy sharpness. It's rather difficult to hold a camera steady while driving)

Do you know how helpless you feel if you have a full cup of coffee in your hand and you start to sneeze?

Setting off to the beach to get some pitorisque sunset shots.
Had a huge meal of Danish specialities (all included) and is now in desperate need of a walk ......



J.P. never sees to amaze me. Here he is 80 and 1/2 years old after a 3 kilometres walk, ready for his afternoon irish. The old warrior still know to pick his fights :P

Deal with the Devil if the Devil has a constituency - and don't complain about the heat

Went to the Red Cross secondhand shop basicly because I need a creamer. Someone removed the one that used to be here. Anyway - did not find any creamer, but a nice skirt and a sweater for which i paid the ridicilous sum of 45 Danish kroner



Heat stricked us today. Sunshine and shinging birds outside my window.
On our way back from town, we drove through Blåbjerg Forest (Bluehill Forest) and I persuaded husband to stop for a quick photoshoot. This area is full of rare plants and flowers - and beech trees of course in blooming green rising high above our heads









In a little while time for afternnoon cappuccino and a chat with Ella and J.P. - Got Ben and Jerry's with chocolate fudge in the freezer and freshly picked strawberries ..... Yummi!

In retrospect I would say from Donald Duck I have learned more about life than from all the schools I ever attended

Skipped the dinner cooking and went out for a meal. Afterwards cappucino and irish coffee at the ice cream café. I like the idea of a mixed menu - something for the kids and something for the kids :P - and everything has a nice equal price. 25 is the number. Easy to remember even for a kid.



I usualy don't secretly photograph people, but this family was concentrating 100% on their little puppy dog. They fed him with a fork, and he sure knew how to beg. He behaved like a kid. Cute xD


Next time I order a meal at this place, I'll remember to ask for the kid's menu. OMG! So much food, that I had to leave half the content on the plate. I'm full to my ears - I promise. Without expressing any kind of prejudices, this place is popular among Germans, and they are big eaters :D


So the rest of the evening will be spent on less than nothing. I'm considering a small walk to the beach before tugging in. Mainly because my stomach is so full that I won't be able to fall asleep. A glass of Fernet Branca might have helped .... In absence of this, a walk might do the trick .....

I'm a very lazy, stay-at-home kind of girl

..... It's up to you where to place the intonation :P
The weather is fabulous. Almost no wind and a sunny sky. Woke up semi-early and had Ella and J.P. here for breakfast. Now it's simple relaxation - nothing more, nothing less. However, I do plan to walk the 25 steps to the ice-cream café for an afternoon irish. And to obey the word of the Director of pluses and minuses and reserve this day for work-free amusements.
Btw: Could shooting a picture with be regarded as work?
