my bear flute **video**

So i’ve been keeping this a little under wraps. I was unsure if i’d like to show this part of my life but I’ve wanted to learn to play the flute for many many years, however i couldn’t afford to buy one. Then one day i came home and this bear flute was sitting in a beautifully embroidered sleeve — waiting for me to learn to play it. Immediately i flicked through the book that. came with it and i picked it up pretty well from the beginning. Unfortunately i suddenly got incredibly busy so i set it aside and have recently had the time to pick it up and play.  I’ve learned to play a lot already! I’m really pleased. Its been years since i learned to play the recorder — but this bear flute feels like it was made for me. It has beautiful low tones and just placing it against my lips feels like a gift; the wood having a warm rich taste like a happy whiskey, if such a thing exists.

I hope you enjoy the video, even though it is very short. I hope to make a lot more and longer ones in future, this was a test to see how to record the flute itself and then trying out a new spot for filming in.  My new favourite spot to go on weekends to relax and be wild again. In the video you’ll get to see my resident bunny and two of the resident crows that have a nest in one of our trees. I dearly love all our back yard visitors — there are so many!
All i need to do now is practice and think of a name for the bear flute. Any suggestions?
What have you been doing to keep busy during corvid-19 ?  Have you learnt any new skills or picked up any old ones?
Let me know in the comments. 🙂

Have a lovely night and thanks, as always, for stopping by!

hygge dag

I haven’t done much. We visited a few places and took a few days for ourselves in Fyn. We have been driving back and forth to Kolding to visit my family which has been really nice, but its exhausting after a full day.

Girl in back seat

Mormor always has tasty Danish food that i’ve missed, while Morfar tells stories about liars and thieves.

Driving in a car

Farmor baked 5 separate types of christmas cookies for us and always has a funny story to tell about her day to day activities.

Book

Jack and Franck had some Julebryg. I pretty much stuffed my damn face with chocolates and cola and ryebread sandwiches, and as much bacon as possible when its provided. And i always leave mormor and morfars house with some kind of book.

Danish julebryg

It is nice to be home when its relaxed and quiet, i dont like the holiday season much because of the partying. I prefer everyone to just be in regular spirits.

Table full of treats

I dont think im going to get the chance to do my vlog like i wanted. Ive been busy and/or tired so i’ll have to do it when i get home if i ever have a day off. But i’ve still been filming as much as i can regardless. I hope my footage and pictures turn out well!

Oh!

And Happy New year!

awake

I’ve been awake since 3.46am this morning and i’m stuck watching middle-aged housewives bitch eachother out on tv. Clearly being rich kept women isnt all its cracked up to be. Around 10am my brother, Jack and i are going to have breakfast at mormor and morfars house which is always a good way to start the day.

Awake

I’ve been having trouble sleeping, something very familiar to me for many reasons, but instead staring aimlessly at the ceiling counting political sheep i venture outside to watch Denmark wake up. Yesterday morning was Christmas morning and i watched the sunrise by myself whilst my camera filmed a timelapse. I scurried around the grounds filming birds flying over the fields and resting in the pine tops. I keep hoping ill see the deer my mother keeps talking about but no luck as of yet.

Last night we celebrated Christmas with my farmor, she makes the best risalamande any side of any place. It was nice to be just 5 of us. Franck, Steph, Jack, Farmor and myself. Laid back, easy and hyggeligt. You don’t need more than that.

It was a lovely Jul with a lot of laughter, story telling and word repetition cause im deaf as a bloodhound with a deficet.

I was falling asleep in the chair by the end of the night, as i am always prone to do, like some father with too happy family. So when we came back to the hotel room we’re sharing i passed out… got 5 hours sleep and here i am. Counting the damn minutes to the menfolk wakes up from their infernal snores.

Im not sure what our day will bring today, but i hope its a simple one. We all talked about visiting town even though everything is closed, but mostly to see familiar places and enjoy the calmness of the morning after Christmas.
Im really glad i set up to blog from my phone — it makes it a lot more convienient when im on the road.. which i am a lot. I found an app to resize my pictures too. Dont get me wrong i prefer posting DSLR pics but its nice to go back to plain basics now and again.

Glædelig jul og godt nytår!

And a happy christmas to those of you who are celebrating today.
