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.

Picture it ...2 days ago ,right before I had to trudge my deathly ill self to the store (like a good mother) because the cats were out of food, I caught a glimpse of my self in the mirror. No make up, broken out face,sheet marks engraved into my cheeks,swollen red nose, hair a rats nest,eyes swollen half shut.....I comment outloud "Oh my Lord ! I look stunning."
My loving spouse says" yeah ,I was just about to tell you that same thing."
Way to wait until AFTER I went out in public. Errr NOT!
All was forgiven later on ,when I heard him say " I never even knew I could look THIS handsome."
Neither did I Honey, neither did I.
(If I showed you the front of us, trust me ,you would surely go blind)
"I'm glad I always look gorgeous."
Happy whatever day!

We have the dreaded "man cold" again. My spouse has been home sick ,for days.(My suffering knows no bounds) It's sucking the Christmas spirit right out of me.
I wish they had a sick man colony he could go stay at until he's well.
In other news...oh there isn't any.
Here's some pics from Saturday. We both drug our sick selves out to Fredericksberg to some thrift store to look at furniture. Naturally , by the time we got there, they were closed. It's a wonder my husband lived through the trip.
I wish I could show you the picture I took of him at the bus stop . I titled it "Crabby sick man at bus stop"
Click 'em to biggen them :)
Have a great day Peeps!

Blizzard from the bus
Christmas trees. Note how small they are?
The better to carry them home :)
This is 3;20 in the afternoon.
The kiddy car bike.
Santa in the subway station. i don't know the reason for all the pacifiers.
Oh...I missed his shoes. Comfy? I think not.
Night of the living dead?
I'll be back......I have cookies to make and a blizzard to trudge through.
