Camp In

Monday, January 30, 2012


Mark and I had planned to rent a cabin in Sweden last weekend, since he is off to Toronto and Montreal on Wednesday for a two month long clinical elective. But due to a bunch of boring logistical things like not having a car and having a cat, it didn't really work it. Being adults can be such a pain. So we had a camp in instead! We made a makeshift tent over our pull out couch using sheets and twine and set up a fake fireplace with a log channel, lots of candles and cedar incense. It actually did feel a bit like camping! Only much more comfortable. We made black bean burgers and s'mores Saturday night and apple oat pancakes for breakfast on Sunday, watched some Twin Peaks and read Kinfolk (well I did, Mark read various medical articles), and were generally super lazy and wore sweat pants and cozy knitted sweaters all weekend. Except for late Sunday afternoon when we got bundled up and went ice skating at Frederiksberg Park since it had just snowed for the first time this year. We also had a lovely family Sunday Supper, where Mark's brother and girlfriend announced their engagement! Which was then celebrated with lots of champagne and amazing homemade French onion soup. Such a good weekend! I'd highly recommend having a camp in sometime.

    1. oh, thank you! Hope you and Don have a lovely time together too. I feel a bit bad about complaining about Mark being away for two months knowing that you guys do it all the time!
