Yesterday we had the most powerful storm in Denmark for ten years. It was insane (read: insane in a Danish perspective, since we hardly ever get anything close to a hurricane). Trees were ripped up from the ground and the police warned people to go outside. The insurance companies will have a lot to look after these days (my mom works at an insurance company, so I’ve heard a lot about it).
Anyways – I thought is was incredibly cozy. I love being inside when it is storming and it’s raining cats and dogs.
All in all I had the most cozy day yesterday. I got off from school quite early. Then I biked home, walked the dog, did a little strength training and enjoyed these healthy chocolate cookies and a cup of tea whilst carving pumpkins in the orangerie in the garden. At this point the storm had really begun.
Then it was mine turn making dinner and I decided to make rice porridge with cinnamon, since this is the coziest winter dish in the world (Danes eat it a lot around winter and Christmas and everybody I know loves it).
What is the best thing when it is dark, cold, rainy and windy outside?
I’m currently changing my room a little. Adding some more coziess and colors. My windowstill has been quite messy for a while:
So I cleared it completely and went on a little adventure in the house looking for anything that could be used as candle holders and stuff like that. I ended up with the cute display, which you can see in the pictures in this post.
One of my friends Julie (who possibly loves autumn even more than I do) gave me the idea of adding fallen leaves to a simple candle – doesn’t it look cute?:
As a last thing I have a small tip for pumpkin carving, which I hope can be useful.
Happy autumn everybody!
