August sunlight

The sharp August sunlight has been brightening up the neigbourhood here now and then, during this week.

We were in downtown the other day, and I took these snapshots of the old buildings by Israel's Plads.
In the end of the street to the right from the upper image, you'll find the Torvhallerne - two buildings filled with all sorts of delicate and culinaristic specialities, with some cafe's and restaurants as well.

A slight sommercold bug kept me inside two days, but yesterday afternoon I was able to enjoy the sunlight. 
During my last visit in the library, I grabbed a random cook book due to the appealing book cover. I was positively surprised when I opened it: Besides the delicious and easy-to-prepare ~ recipes, the author describes small anecdotes of her life. Her love for good and tasty food shines through the lines. The book is written by Sophie Dahl and is called "Miss Dahl's vuloptuous delights".

Summer is ebbing into autumn, the last weekend of summer holidays is at hand ...

All in all, it was a never to be forgotten summer — 
one of those summers which come seldom into any life, 
but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going —
 one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, 
delightful friends and delightful doing, 
come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.

... Until next time,

  1. Oh I love that first photo. I wouldn't say no to a little wander down that street.

    Sorry you've been sick, I hope you're feeling better now! It's always frustrating to get sick in the summertime, I thought I was coming down with something last week, but luckily I didn't in the end. Phew!

    I hope you have a lovely weekend!
