Weekend In A Crooked City

'I make my own choices. I'm not afraid' read under a photo of a girl holding a plant. The photo was found at Café Cake on Wolvenstraat 23 in Amsterdam, where we enjoyed the best coffee and read magazines, while people walked outside the window. The day before we had visited the Gallery Felix &Foam where a huge party had been held during the night. The Sunday was spend with walks and talks and meat/salad for lunch at SLA followed by a glimpse of the Unseen Photo Fair. At the fair people had a chance to jump into a cloud - more to come...

Three Projects: Plant Stand, Porrage & Amsterdam

My Monday: I got introduced to a new shop on Jægersborggade last Sunday: Bak. Their magazine and plant stand inspired me - because I had one at home which really needed attention. So my Monday evening was spend giving our plant stand a little attention.
My Tuesday: Going back to porrage/grød in the morning. Made one with quinoa, 'Grød nr. 3' from Irma and skyr, appel purrée, almonds, blueberrys and sea buckthorn on top. Went to work satiated.
My Wednesday: After work today I huried down to a bookshop, where I found a little guide book about Amsterdam. I have been there two times before - one as a child and one with my old HF-team. I'm looking forward to relax, enjoy and experience new adventures in a city, where the water rules. More to come...

Hesitation / Mandevilla / Sea Buckthorn

One evening in Mejlgade I looked up and noticed the words 'lysets tøven' / 'hesitation of light'. The words reminded me of a cloudy Sunday - or when Fall arrives, and the days get shorter. The day after I finally found the name of a red/pink flower on our balcony - Mandevilla - which during fall and summer, has grown intensely. Last weekend we collected sea bucktorn in Northern Jutland, which where enjoyed with skyr, müsli, almonds and flower honey.

Hello Fall

Fall arrives tomorrow. I'm looking forward to wear my new/old necklace again. Yesterday I made my second Rörstrand find - very suitable for breakfast. Little drawings in my notebook from our summer trip to Berlin - makes me calm. Bye bye summer...

My Day Off

Today I did practical stuff - like cleaning a little spot on my new blue/green dancing dress, writing our vacation plan into my calendar and preparing for remaking my bathing suit. Then I went on a bike ride to Risskov to take a swim. The weather changed from sunny to cloudy, and on my way home, I stopped at Street Coffee on Frederiksbjerg. It started to rain, while I read an articel about a blogger - Jack Monroe - who cooks for one hundred kroner a week. Interesting blog idea and inspiring insight to another persons challenges - which turns out to be her benefit. The album SUN by Cat Power played on the record player behind me, and when the rain stopped, I went home. Calm day / cooling breeze.

Within the last week my perception of myself, others and the meaning with everything has changed radically - from day to day, hour to hour, minute to minue. I don't know what the meaning is, but I know what makes me rethink, when everything seems not possible. A book by Thomas Espedal - and the way he captures moments, scenes and fragments from his own life. I had red about him in the Norwegian magazine FIN more than a year ago - and finally I have started on one of his books. Visiting the Wes Lang exchibition on ARoS, where the meaning of life is essential and mixed with skeletons, naked beauty, indians and wordplays with a deeper meaning. The exhibition studio contained one big confusing mixture - like life itself. A new frame with old dravings about plants and birds. Stones found by the ocean... That's it.
