Christmas Cheer

Chai tea, pom poms in christmas colours, cookies and presents. Only a few days left until December!

Hooray for Monday! And a Vagina Cake!

My contribution to the cake competition.  It got 2nd place. Afterwards no one wanted to eat it - wonder why ;-)

To celebrate the beginning of a new week, here's what I'm looking forward to in the coming days.

//Knitting and wrapping.

//Spending the weekend in Aarhus with my family.

//Brussel sprout gratin.

//Visiting Den Gamle By.

Wishing you a calm week!

Christmas Cookie Weekend


We made brunkager og jĂždekager. They're so delicious that I've hidden the cookie container in the back of my kitchen cupboard in the hope that I wont eat them all at once. Yum!

Christmas makings



The Christmas knitting and wrapping is in full swing at the moment. For once I'm fairly certain that I'll have everything ready (and shipped!) in time.
Are you buying or making this year?

Hooray for Monday


To celebrate the beginning of a brand new week, here’s what I’m looking looking forward to in the coming days.

//The baking competition that we're having tomorrow at my school. The theme is "anatomy or something that has a 'midwifery-look'". I just finished my contribution. I'll try to get at picture of it in the morning.

//Homemade granola...mmmm!

//Our Annual Christmas Cookie Baking Weekend at my mormors house. Pictures from a couple of years back here, here and here.

Wishing you a relaxing week!

This & That




Top 4 pictures: last weekend visiting the ocean with my parents.




Knitting for charity. These were originally meant to be sent to NY to help the people affected by Sandy but I was too slow and acceptance of donations is now closed. Instead they'll be donated to this.

The Danish sky in most days of November. Pretty depressing!



 Salty liquorice.

Holiday knit

Genius book about how to get the Worlds Happiest People to be the Friendliest People of the World.


Homemade granola.

Wishing you a beautiful week!


*it went well - though I won't know for sure until mid-December. 

Yesterday...


...I spent an afternoon with miss Carla and her mom. I knit the (almost too small) hat for her and may I just say that nothing beats the cuteness of chubby cheeks topped off with a big pom pom.

Sutro Baths II


My head is spinning from studying for my first exam on Friday. I could use a brisk and windy walk by Sutro Baths right about now.

More here.

Hooray for Monday

Wishing you an exciting week!

Aroma Tea Shop







I'm a tea drinker. Occasionally I'll have a latte but only if it's made at a cafe, preferably here or here.
Now tea on the other hand; I drink at least one pot a day. Often more. I prefer the herbal kind but I also love a good spicy chai latte now and then.
The teas on the pictures above are my favourites from a lovely store in San Francisco called Aroma Tea Shop. They have a huge selection of teas and knowledgeable staff who'll give you plenty of information on how to properly steep and store tea as well as samples to try.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my current tea collection will last until my next San Francisco visit.

Random fact: I used to drink tea with milk and sugar as a kid. I then 'graduated' to just tea with milk and now I prefer it plain.
When did you start drinking coffee and/or tea?
