Sitting in my kitchen thinking of Yule :-)
I´m sitting in my kitchen drinking a cup of coffee looking out the window. The rain has fallen most of the day but it stays up in the clouds at the moment. It’s not cold enough d enough to start a fire in the stove but it would be nice anyway. But I better not if I would like to be able to sleep tonight, all the heat from the stove will go straight up into my bedroom 🙂 🙂
We have way to much to paint at work, which is good news really, so we won´t be able to finish anything in time. So now we´ll make an extended shift. Some people will start later in the morning but continue later in the evening instead. Since I´m up before the rooster I´ll continue to start early but my apprentice, that loves to sleep long in the morning (never late to work though) takes the late part of the day. But where we´ll get all the other people we need I have no idea 🙂 🙂 🙂 I guess some people from other departments will work overtime to help us.
My absolute favorite tv series started this Saturday :-), Eureka. They stopped in the middle of the season because we came to close to You in the US. So it was the Christmas episode we saw this time 🙂 Since that I have had christmas songs in my head and I’ve been thinking of actually decorating for christmas this year (or jul as we call it) 🙂 🙂 🙂
So I’ve been playing with the idea that I will make most of the decorations myself this year. In my mind I can see those perfect red toadstools made of papier maché (yes that mushroom is actually a christmas decoration here or perhaps it´s more for advent to be honest). I can see all other things I´ll make and they will all be just perfect 🙂 🙂 But I know me so if I actually do make them myself they will be anything but perfect 🙂 🙂
But I do have a spruce in a pot outside and I´m planning on bringing it down to my cold cellar as soon as the weather gets cold, so I can bring it up and have it in my living room on the table during christmas. It is small so I can´t put to much decorations on it. But the size is perfect because I really can´t have a big tree here, my cottage is to small for that and I know what Orvar might do to that poor tree 🙂 🙂 🙂
I don´t have any Christmas crib any longer either. My mother once very generously gave mine away but sort of forgot to tell me until after it was done 🙂 I must get me one of those again because I don´t think I´ll try to make one myself , I do know my limits even in my imagination 🙂 🙂 🙂
But I´ll do nothing of that now, it is time for something to eat and then I think I´ll read a book. Perhaps I´ll see one of the endless reruns of Simpsons but I doubt it. Channel six seem to think that if they can´t decide what to show show a rerun of the Simpsons 🙂 🙂 🙂 Have a great day!
