It does feel more "Christmas is Coming" with snow on the ground and frost on the windows.
On a frosty day, every bit of sunshine counts
I picked up a big tin of Pepparkakor in Madison last week. For those not in the know, these are very thin, very crisp Swedish ginger cookies (wonderful with coffee). I have an excellent recipe, but these are almost as good and much easier. Mr S did make his Christmas Pudding, and it is ageing in the fridge.
I've almost finished the second pair of ribbed mittens, and may squeak in a third. I figure I had better put them in the mail by the end of the week.
And I've been having fun with the DROPS design julekalender - very cute with those little red hearts and a new pattern surprise every day. But it won't let you peek ahead. What can I say? It's nice to feel a little childlike.
