chanukah is over. the evening of the 8th candle we had a regular festival of light in the living room, as all three kids made their own chanukiah in their kindergartens. and we have our own as well. so lots of little colored candles and pretty light.
christmas is light this year around here. since i know i will be leaving i am not doing much. a christmas calendar candle is a must, and then there are my grandmother's red apples out of wood and the felted heart ornaments i made last year. plus a little danish solider and a drum. pretty much it. we'll go christmas nuts in copenhagen.
as i write i hear the thunder and the rain. that;s the closest we've come to winter this year. and it came today, within an hour after my father had left for the airport. pretty good timing, as he enjoyed the sunny, warm weather while he was here, but the rest of us are more than ready for some colder winds. and anyway, in a week from now it'll be me and the kids on our way to a (hopefully) white christmas in copenhagen. we'll leave D behind this year, but he'll survive without christmas. me on the other hand....
wishing you a wonderful weekend :)
