◤this was mine! some good stuff, a little bad stuff, some general work-and-study-stuff and some really good cozy-laying-in-bed-watching-movies-stuff!◣ Today is the first sunday of advent and im a little homesick.◤ We used to kind of having the tradition to go home to my parents for this day and eat a lot of food and get a good start on December, but its really hard to keep it.◢ Im very lucky though, because my parents sent me care-package with marzipan, candles and a beautiful beautiful advent wreath my father made him self. ◥How bad a daughter am i that i have not yet photographed it so i can show it to you? i will soon! that and the beautiful advent star my parents gave me some years ago. its just like the one at my parents home◢
▶ Famapa: Thanks, it was actually an emergency snack because i didn't have anything in the fridge for lunch :)
▶ Lisen: Well, Rufus is actually pretty good about not stealing and waiting to eat treats till he gets the ok-order, but if he his hungry he is not to be trusted around food.
▶ Lea: Yeah thats the thing when you don't have a dog around -you never know how many funny things are lying around.. :)
▶ Sandra: Yeah its really pretty -once i hope to shoot him when he sticks his tongue all out. its pretty long..
▶ Sylvester and Mama: You can tell on his ears that he is really focused! -Thank you for stopping by! im so glad you like it here!
▶ Emma: The cutest dog in town!
▶ Bettina: Jeg tror han tror han kan snuppe det fordi jeg sidder med kameraet :)
◤you can never have anything to yourself when the whippet is around◢
▶ Brinja: Or maybe we should just accidentally delete the to do list and only do things on the fun list!!
▶ Emma: Yeah, maybe! i have been looking for an alternative explanation for the fat thing, but still no luck
▶ Maria: thank you! i made the name for them too! the first part, Marybell, is based partly on the child-killer Mary Bell and partly on the fact that Marybell sounds like such a sweet-girl name (and my sisters name is marie..)
▶ Ninja Hanna: Yes they are -thank you for your sweet post about ungt blod!
▶ (Senior): YEah, big is beautiful! -so good to hear from you and im so glad you like it!
▶ Kaela Noel: They were real treasures! -and link all you want!
▶ Sylvesteran: you are very welcome! thank you so much for commenting! i love hearing from readers! Keep stopping by!
▶ Rebecca: Tak, tak, tusind tak! tak fordi du kommenterede! blive ved med det!
◤ D bought me these fantastic children-books from 1938 at a second-hand store the other day! They are from a series about Tykke Niels -which means FAT Niels. ◤(Not very pc -or maybe very pc??)◢ I love the cover illustrations -Niels does not look very fat though!- that were made by a danish actor Stig Lommer, but unfortunately there are no illustrations inside◥
▶ Tas-ka: Thank you thank you so much! im a big fan you yours!
▶ Brita: Glad im not the only one who's lists does not ad up!
◤ i have two lists in my head: ◣ one with the things i want to spend my time doing and one with things i have to, have to do. ◢ sometimes the two lists have several things in common -good times- and other times like now, there seem to be too little in common between the two lists. ◥ Well, its probably just a question of looking at things the right way -and stop procrastinating.. ( you know you are procrastinating when the things you are doing are not even on the first list -let alone the second ) ◢
▶ Brinja: tusind tak! fedt at du kan lide det!
▶ Andrea: Thank you -it really was so yummy! im getting hungry every time i see the picture!
▶ Lisen: You are so sweet! thank you! im pretty proud of the cover :) i can't wait till the postman stops by!
▶ Steph: so silly!! like they are trying to make it tough!
▶ Emma: This pizza is designed so you will always get hungry when you look at it -no matter how much you have eaten before!
◢ I have been experimenting with home-made pizza a couple of times now and its been going really well!◤ i never dared to try before, because my ovens have been less than pizza-perfect.◥ But coupled with a pizza-stone i took the jump and yummy yummy yummy! ◢ its soo good and soo easy! ◤ so far my best tips are: ▶ if you have the time; prepare the dough the day before ▶ -but even if you don't have the time; Chill the dough in the fridge an hour or two before baking: makes it easier to handle. ▶ Pre-bake the crust on the hot hot pizza stone for at least 5 min. before adding tomatosause, lots of cheese and maybe some salami (don't open the oven for this period) ▶ Give the pizza enough time in the oven! let it get really golden and crispy!▶ Add stuff like fresh basil, thyme, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and rocket-salad(is that not the weirdest name in english?? in denmark we call it rucola).◥ Its such a good, quick and cheap dinner.◤ Other favourite toppings include thinly sliced parsnip or carrot or sweet potatoes.◢

▶ mieke willems: So glad you like it!

▶ Katrine NY: Tak tak! og godt at du kan kommentere igen! if anybody has got trouble commenting please send me an email!
▶ Bettina: Tak til jer begge! håber i får det hele til at virke
▶ Mado: Thanks! they make me happy when i am sick!
◤ This is what my sick days are looking like! everyday its something new: ear then throat then chest then throat. cough, cough! today is okay though because i can actually breathe :) and the snow on the rooftops that i can see through the window is helping too!◢
▶ Lynn&Horst: hmm... is that a compliment?? :)
▶ Lisen: We only have a little snow on the ground now and Rufus goes C R A C Y too! he jumps and dances and plays! its so much fun! And its so cool to see that he almost likes the jacket because he can relax more!
▶ Niller: tsch tsch tsch. you can't openly say you don't like dogs!! that is very dangerous!
▶ A moment of...: YEah you really can't say you don't like dogs! -and thank you for liking my blog! hope you keep coming back! im danish and living in copenhagen!
▶ Anne: Thank you so much! it is getting better!
▶ Stride: JA han er virkelig god! god kombo af noget jeg vil kunne lide og noget han selv interesserer sig for!
▶ Hanna: Good idea!!
◤Rufus gave me this book for my birthday last month! its got some really brilliant photographs! like ones from 1880-1890ies of naked women and dogs! so strange - so beautiful!◢
▶ Hanna: im not sure if rufus really feels handsome, but he likes being warm! they are promising temperatures today that will fell like -15 celcius with the wind-chill-factor!
▶ Lea: Tak! hader halsbetændelse!
▶ Lisen: i have been putting off making a jacket for Rufus the past two years and felt really bad about it since he is so skinny! I think the second hand store used to be UFF -i would never shop en UFF in denmark, but i don't know if it is the same people.
▶ Mado: I want to go to Emmas tea-party!
▶ Mieke Willems: very talented sisters for sure! its funny -i think i like the white dress best myself, but everybody else seem to like the rust-coloured one.. hmm...
▶ Gracia: Thank you for the well wishes! i try to enjoy lying in bed, but its hard when you have trouble breathing :)
▶ Pigeon toed: thank you! im never this lucky with second hand!
