Do you ever have those periods of time, when you just don’t seem to have time for half the stuff you want to do, and you can’t really figure out why? And what totally boggles your mind is, you cannot for the life of you understand how you normally manage?
Well, I do! I’ve been a bit absent, I know that – but I have one of those periods at the moment. So the answer is: I don’t know. How to do it all, that is. The ability to juggle many balls at one time comes and goes – and lately, I have only seen the back of it…
A few weekends ago, we went to a place called Knuthenborg Safaripark – the weather was wonderful, and we had such a fun day. The name says it all, but it’s a huge park, where you can drive around in your car and get close to wild animals from all over the world. In some parts of the park you have to stay in your car (especially in the fenced area where the tigers can be spotted), but mostly you are allowed to get out and take a closer look. Both girls enjoyed it, and Mads and I did as well! More pictures here.
Last weekend was spent in Jutland with my brothers, cousins, and their families. We rented all rooms and apartments in Skillerbjerg Bed & Breakfast (totally recommended by the way – already booked it for the same weekend next year) and delegated the different meals between us. The place was big enough for us to have lots of room; it had a wonderful kitchen diner, and a living room with a pool table, darts, and plenty of soft furniture. It even had a big terrace outside with tables and chairs, but we had quite a bit of rain, so we didn’t get to use it that much.
The place is near a tiny harbour where you can take a small ferry on a 10-minute trip to an island called Årø. I went on the ferry-trip with the girls, along with my cousin Elsebeth and her family, but we didn’t stay long because Ronja wasn’t in the mood for long walks, but we did take a walk to the little light house, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of the place – hopefully next year.
We had a perfect weekend, and having time enough to hang out with our family, talk to everyone, and have the children play was really nice.
Now it’s weekend. It’s raining with thunder and lightning, and there’s a beautiful golden light in the living room because of the setting sun and the dark clouds. I’m putting Ronja to bed in a few moments, and we don’t have plans for this weekend, which is quite nice, actually. Maybe I’ll have time for some rainy days sewing?
