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.
I 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
