It is the last Tuesday in the month of November!
In a month that has been milder than any other November that I can recall.
The weather is strange.
If you were to rely on the weather, you would never, ever guess that it is almost time for the Christmas month...
Anyway, I am talking too much about the weather these days. BUT, I do think that it SUCKS!
I want cold days now, frosty days, a bit of snow in the air. All that!
That would make my heart beat a lot faster!
The thing is that it is very mild in Scandinavia, too. NOT as mild as here, but mild considering.
But, the big difference between us and them is that they have it so DARK!
I have zero problems with the darkness here in the DC-area. It gets dark a little bit before five now, but the sun is so much higher in the sky so the days are still very bright.
You do get your daylight hours in without a problem.
I almost wish that it was a little bit darker, to tell you the truth!
The sun is rising a bit after 7 in the mornings.
In Stockholm, it raises around 8:15 and it sets around 15:00.
THAT is a huge difference from here.
Yesterday around 14:00...
I am fixing things for Christmas all the time. I have little things going on.
Most of all I am looking forward to get our Christmas tree now, but that’ll have to wait until the beginning of next week.
When the tree is in my house it is complete!
It is time to start making candy and cookies for Christmas. Fun things like that.
Karolina likes it, too. She’s my little baker. And, I am proud to say that she’s making everything from scratch!
Good girl of mine!
The Juniper outside my house got some decorations yesterday.
I took a little trip to the craft store Michael’s yesterday and I ended up with more Christmas stuff.
It is also time to send out Christmas cards, and to send all the Christmas gifts to Sweden.
Actually, it is TIME to get BUSY!!!
But, first a cup of tea on the deck, in the afternoon sun. Yes, this post is pre-published (what else is new!)
Have a good, and crispy, Tuesday!
