Tomorrow we are going to put up our Christmas tree. There are already some gifts that are waiting to be placed under it. I am proud to say that i am almost "in route" with my chocolate advent calendar eating , only laying one day ahead now...not bad hah!*smiling*.
Today a dear friend of mine stopped by with something that has become a tradition the last years: her homemade vørterkake/malt loaf. It was even slightly warm, the delicious smell fastly filled the kitchen and immediately made both my husband and i hungry. Butter and brunost were put on top of the slices and ooooh heavens how good it tasted. One of the many, MANY, joys of Christmas....*feeling grateful*...
Yesterday i suddenly decided that there are one more person that i want to make a pair of knitted socks to for Christmas so i guess that i should return to my needles again soon..*smiling*. Two new and bigger knitting projects are already planned for the new year, both of them for friends. And a grey cardigan for myself IS going to happen too (been thinking about it for so long)! Just need to decide on the pattern AND yarn.
Finally it's white outside!!! We got snow a few days back and with it came the Christmas feeling for me. MORE than ready for the Christmas to set in. Speaking of Christmas: i have a little surprise for you for Christmas but i can't reveale it quite yet...*smiling*...
Lately i have been thinking back on this past year. What this year has brought with it, in which areas have i grown....what have i learned, what have i chosen to use my time and energy on...what have i filled my days with, what have i focused on,
.....challenges, sorrows, blessings....gratitudes.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we
have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."
