I know you're expecting the usual Monday Amenities post,
but today I thought I'd take a break
and tell you about the first few days of March.
Tim found a 10-clip in a puddle, so we hitched a free ride to Copenhagen.
After getting off at the station, we made our first stop
at this darling little coffee shop.
It's every bit as small as it looks, with a spiral staircase heading upstairs ...
where I think I would live, if I were the proprietor.
(Who, incidentally, looks a great deal like Ted Danson in Cheers.)
I love the place.
I also kind of love this post box, because it's so spiffy.
Then, because it felt so much like spring,
we had an impromptu picnic in the park,
with blankets and books and a sandwich or two.
Isaac really wanted me to take a picture of his stick.
So. There it is.
One of my favorite things about Copenhagen is all the color.
The downtown area is like an ancient brick rainbow,
one colorful building after the next.
... My second favorite thing would be the way people just sit anywhere they please,
simply because the sun is shining and ... why not?
This brick building is a church on one side, and a restaurant on the other.
With a big sign that says "I AM NOT A CHURCH"
hanging down the side.
I just liked how the bicycles lined the tunnel.
A little flower shop.
For the remainder of the afternoon, we wandered from street to street
... finding our way into all the little thrift shops,
which turned out to be very eclectic and retro.
Isaac tried to pick some toy flowers.
Which proved to be a huge disappointment,
as they had next to no smell.
... The train ride home with books and play-dough.
Somewhat uneventful, other than an accidental shower of m&m's
onto the carpeted floor.
The next day was a bit chilly, but still sunny.
We went to the park in Roskilde, next to the library.
And mucked around in the mud for a bit.
Aren't my boys adorable? ... ♥
Cat-tails! I love these things. They're so fluffy I could die!
Little tufts of fuzz continuously floating in the air.
... And we visited the farmer's market, and the bagel shop, and another thrift store
... Where we found some bottles and coke glasses and a pyrex dish ...
Which made Tim very happy because, for whatever reason,
he really wanted to make a casserole that night.
And, after all that happy aimless wandering around Roskilde,
we came home tired and hungry.
As you can see ...
By Isaac's grand entrance (above).
(He does this every time.)
I spent the rest of the weekend happily ensconced in a Sayers' novel,
and can't say I remember much else aside from whodunit.
How was your first of March?
