Day 21: a very short post

Hi, my friends. Here is what I woke up to this morning:

Cousin M and I went in to Salmon Arm, where I was able to do all my christmas shopping in a couple of hours. This is what we saw on the way there and back”

When we got home, Cousin S had left me this before going off to work:

A lovely herbal tea with licorice and slippery elm bark, among other things. And some of the shortbreads I made yesterday. It made for a welcome break.

It’s been a very busy  day and is now almost midnight, so this will be short.

I did make the Hvite Pepperkake dough and it’s in the fridge for overnight.

IMG_5831I translated the British weights to Canadian measures and am not convinced I got it right. I had to leave out two cups of flour. But it seems like the right texture and I guess I’ll find out tomorrow when I bake it.

While I was out, I bought myself a wee Christmas treat. The cousins don’t eat candy and I rarely do anymore, but at Christmas I always have some of this:

I had to eat some so the rest would fit into the container . . .

This is the last of my daily posts. I’m going to aim for weekly for a while, but we’ll ssee. I may post in between when there is something special to share.

A very happy Solstice to those of you who celebrate the return of the Light.  I shall be thinking of you  tomorrow. (today already, for some of you, anyway)

Thanks for hanging in with me during these three weeks. It’s been fun.

Now for some music:

Tshinanu by Kashtin. They are Canadian and I have loved their work for years. Don’t think they perform currently.

Merry Christmas, Everyone, Great Big Sea & Friends, Gift Of Giving Show  I love the message at the beginning of this and couldn’t have said it better. 

Another of my favourite Canadian groups,The Rankin Family singing We Rise Again. Too bad the audience noise is so loud; still, Raylene’s voice is amazing. And here is a different recording of that song, this time more clearly.

Peace and Harmony to you all . . .  ~ Linne

    • Thanks, Selma; I’m sure you are revelling in Christmas cheer by now. Almost eight o’clock am for you at the moment. Hope all your preparations are done and you have time to sit and enjoy at least a good coffee. The Hvite Pepperkaker did turn out, but not as I expected. I’ll be emailing you to see if I make it properly or not. Half of it is gone, I think, so that’s a good sign. I am sending hugs back to you. Have a wonderful Christmas day! ~ Linne

    • Thank you; it has been happy. AND tomorrow we shall receive 22 seconds . more of light than today. Nice! Thanks for the wish for peace; I’d like that for the whole world, actually, if it isn’t too much trouble. And today I have been VERY good (well, self-restrained, anyway) and still have more than half the bag of allsorts left. I was tempted, though . . . All the best to you, Jon; and to Jan also. ~ Linne

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to reading your comments. ~ Linne
