9 years away from 50

Eventhough I am 41, I still feel like a spring chicken. Well not that springy with all my body aches, but still I feel young inside. Not ready to retire my concert t-shirts and Scooby-Doo.

Seems like the ghost that we are sharing our apartment with is being very mischievous.  Yesterday when we came home, I found our kitchen window wide open.  I lost a water canister, but glad that Laser Cat didn't notice the window open and falling to her death. 

My husband doesn't believe that we have a ghost, but I have seen him a few times peering around the corner of our door ways. 

I have a feeling he watches us when we sleep and feel soft caresses on my cheek or feel my hair move off of my face.  I know it's not my husband cause when I'd wake up, I'd turn to him but see that he's sleeping and snoring. 

Just a few minutes ago, as we were watching Aliens on the big screen, my daughter came to me and told me she heard a noise in the kitchen.  I noticed that Laser Cat was also staring towards the kitchen.  So the King just went into the kitchen to see.  I went as backup.  We checked everywhere.  Nothing. 

Is it bad when the cat stays behind in the light... watching very closely?

Weight Loss

My husband is on a journey of weight loss. He is on a 2000 calorie diet and had already lost approximately 16 pounds. He wanted to show me what 16 pounds could be compared to.

See the ham he's holding. That is 16 pounds.

It's interesting after we moved to Denmark, we had lost weight as it is... but to continue the journey is very brave. I am very proud of him.

As I took another look at the photo... looks like the two skulls are biting into the ham.

The Turnip

That is what my husband just said I reminded him of.

One of my many hats I've made.

Erotikmesse/Erotic Convention

It's normally a two hour trip to Copenhagen, one that I normally sleep away, but this time I kept myself busy with needle binding.

Copenhagen surely can't be compared to Houston, and I know Houston can't be compared to something like New York City, but after living in Denmark for three years, Copenhagen is always a nice outing. I especially love the variety of restaurants, such as the Paskistani/Indian restaurant we ate at. Mmmm....

We also attended the Erotic Convention. I giggled like a highschool kid and was awed at my first strip show. I was totally embarrassed with the male stripper. His show was not intended for the female crowd, dancing to "Relax", lathering his chest with white lotion, in his white undies and cowboy boots. Very disappointing. Still... it was fun and I saw a porno video version of Avatar. Nice. :)

Suffering from brain exhaustion. Learning Danish is tiring for the one and only, Laser Cat.

A new hobby of mine, Nålbinding has become such an addiction. I think I have made 20 hats of various sizes. Most are going to be Christmas gifts to my Houston familia eventhough cold winters aren't a known there.

I made these socks yesterday, using some leftover yarn. The colors are kinda funky, but the socks are warm and comfortable. I think after last years winter, which was horrible for me, and with the high price of using heat, we pretty much lived in what I would consider subzero degrees, so being able to make my own socks will be pretty cool.

Boy have I been busy. 

Started new hours at work.  Early morning shift.  Actually way too early for my taste.

Will start a new job come November.  I am really glad for that because instead of it being an hour commute by bus, it's just a 10 minute walk.  :)

Been going to language class at night and preparing for my big test in November and December.  If I pass the test, then I am finally done with language class.  My last step for an early residency is to organize a forening, society/interest group.  I am pretty proud of myself at how much Danish I have learned in three years.  I still have a slight problem with grammar, but from what I am told with practice it will get better, but the most important is the I am easily understood.  Hmmm... people don't run from me anymore. 

Last but not least, I have learned a new hobby called nålbinding or needle binding.  I think it's going to be a well enjoyed diversion and a serious, costly addiction.  I think I go to the yarn shop like every three days.  Not good.  :)   I have been busy making 100 % wool hats, scarves, mittens, purses, and socks for my family in Houston.  Christmas gifts that my daughter will be delivering soon. 

Soon I will be posting photos of my projects.
