A little, and definitely late

Oh, wow, that break just happened, huh?
Well, at least i'm not as bad as my husband who recently blogged for the first time since April.
Then again, he doesn't run around calling himself a "blogger", so there's that.

Lot's of stuff has been happening, but it's way too hot for me to properly describe any of them.
Yes, it's currently somewhere around 35c and well, that's just too much for this viking.
My brain stopped functioning a few days ago, to be honest, but as always, i figured that an incoherent update was better than no update at all.

I will just very quickly mention, because it relates to a pictures in this post that will otherwise have a very long caption, that one of the main things that has kept us busy lately has been preparing the house for a photo shoot, and even though we've known the date of the shoot for months, we started working way too late and had to basically work till 4 in the morning for several days in some pretty intense heat.
The shoot, which was on Wednesday, went great, though, and i can't wait to show you the pictures, after they've been published, of course.
Oh, and as a bonus, the house looks pretty amazing, and we've finished some projects that we've been putting off for months, so that's nice!

I almost can't wait until tomorrow.
It's supposed to be 25c and i don't think i've ever looked forward to 25c as much as i do now.
I usually love summer, but this heat is making claustrophobic and paranoid, and it's no fun.
I'm looking forward to maybe getting my mind back, perhaps even my appetite and energy?
That would be nice, cause hey, i have shit to do.

A few weeks back we rented a car and went to Leipzig to see the Boss and i got myself this fancy t-shirt (this is a pre-heatwave picture, obviously, i am so not wearing pants today)

One of two amazing ice cream places in the hood; this one has a salted butter caramel ice cream that is to die for, and cute tables

One of the projects i've been putting off was this: tiling the kitchen wall... it was terrifying, but fun, and i'm pretty pleased with the result, and the fact that i managed to do it all by myself

I've had the tiles for a couple of months, but sometimes you need a deadline, right?

I haven't even shown you the terrace, have i? 
It was built on my birthday in June, and i guess i should have found a better picture that this, but there'll be more, i swear

My one sunflower, on the fireescalpony

I don't cook much these days, but last week i cooked some soba noodles, and even made my own vegetarian tsuyu sauce

Friendly old neighbor man gave me these recently, and they're some of my favorites of the flowers on the stairs at the moment

We finally found a table for the cowboy bar, now we just need to fix the ceilings and buy some booze

This dress, this bag and that dog, basically my summer uniform

Yesterday we went to the lake with the Aussies, Kinga, and our friends Martin and Christel who are visiting from Copenhagen, and it was amazing

Even though Allan doesn't do the whole swimming thing, i'm pretty sure he enjoyed sitting in the shade drinking suspicious blue sodas all day
So, that was random!
I'll try to post a bit more regularly, cause i have so many things to share.
I hope you'll all still be here for that.

Hmmm, i obviously don't have much time to blog these days, which is a little annoyong cause i have a lot to share, but that's how it goes sometimes.
So this is just a post to let you know that i am still alive, and very, very happy.
And that's nice, right?

Here are some pictures of trees and cows in Denmark, cause that's what was already in my big pile o' drafts.
That should buy me a few more days, shouldn't it?
I think so.
