- A pre-December-ornament-round up -
Told you I had my first Christmas post of this year waiting, didn´t I?
Well, after celebrating my first Thanksgiving of all time last night, I think it´s okay to post an ornament round up today :)
One of my goals is to add more and more handmade ornaments each year, so here are some new pieces of our collection:
I bet there are more to come, but these are the ones we assembled last week. I suppose we won´t manage to deck a whole tree with handmade ornaments this year, but if we keep collecting and collecting, we might in the future.
And until then, I still tell myself it´s okay to buy factorymade ornaments, at least some, if they are as beautiful as this one:
I´m really beginning to get into the mood for Christmas. The weather over here is still quite sunny, actually, yesterday I went outside wearing a short sleeved shirt, and no, this is not common in Germany in November.
That Thanksgiving Party yesterday?
Tim has a colleague from the States, she only moved here in March, and since she can´t be with her family, she invited us to a huge Thanksgiving dinner.
And oh, it was marvelous! With all the people from her german class over there, it was quite an international gathering. I had a long talk with a nice guy from Iran about freedom, and with a guy from Belgium about alcohol, and with a girl from Kasachstan about the concept of Cold Turkey in economics. That was pretty refreshing. Oh, and of course I fell in love with pumpkin pie and pumpkin scones and pumpkin cheesecake. What have I missed all these years!
While I´m typing this, I can hear Eva practise her violin, Mehmet and Miro are singing up in their rooms, and Ronja is kicking the piano, cause she´s angry she can´t get her new song straight. And Tim is cutting the cake he made with Miro today:
Life is good.
Song for today:
I wanted to post a Christmas song today. I had even found a really nice on. But then Ingrid threw her new single on the market, and of course I need to listen to it over and over and over again, so, this is today´s song. And I´m so looking forward to her album release in January!
