the day goes to pot.....
Today was supposed to be "get the hell out of here day" but NOOOOOO.
We have been sick (and still are) and snowed in for days ,andddd every thing has been closed for the last 2 or 3 days.
I go stir crazy on a normal day. This has really been awful.
Christmas eve we wanted to go out to eat. Everything was either booked up and /or closed. We were so sick ,we didn't really care any way.
Christmas day we lazed all day. I cooked a roast (to dried out perfection)
We thought about going to a movie, we were too sick to bother.
We opened our presents around noon and later called all the kids.
That was it.
Most of our prezzies haven't arrived yet. My main gift is a Kindle. Woot! I'm sure I'll love it once it gets here :)
Hubby has watched endless old and /or boring movies. I have laid around in my bed trying to read ,but all the books I have sucked. I just can't read a bad book.
Last evening we finally got off our asses and decided we just HAD to go somewhere, anywhere, even if it was just riding the subway back and forth.
We got off the subway at Kongens Nortov and some how wound up in an area called Nyhavn. It is right along the canal and so far I had never been there.(simply because I hadn't found it)
It was dark and snowy and really beautiful.
All the restaurants were setting up like they expected to be really busy.
We walked along and by "walked" I mean my husband pretty much speed walks and drags me along as fast as my stubby legs can carry me.
So, all the pictures were taken as I ran down the street.
remember ...click 'em to make them big!
We finally stopped at a place called La Sirene.
They had room for us so we stayed for dinner.
It was a little italian place .I really liked it. The atmosphere was nice ,the service was great and the pizza was good too.
La Sirene ??
It was SOOOOO nice to get out and do something.
Today ,I packed up all my library books ,took the subway and walked all the way to the library only to find them CLOSED. Gah!
Meaning ...not only was I still bookless, I also had to drag 40 pounds of books around for the rest of the day.
That was fun.
I just got home , my back is killing me and I must say I'm not looking forward to dried out roast for dinner :)
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Can't wait to read all about them and see everyone's pictures.
