Every day now is a favorite day. No stress, though a long list of things to do......if time is there. I make krumkake using Guri´s recipe (my dear friend who passed away last August). I dust the livingroom. I set up yet another nativity scene.....this one in olive wood from Betlehem, bought there last week by a friend. I open the letters which came in the mail today. I listen to a Christmas cd. I write some letters at work, I make coffee for work meetings and place a box of delicate chocolate on the table before my colleages arrive. I take a break to go out to buy a few extra Christmas presents (the favorite ones for the stockings). I pass a coffee house and stop for a caffe latte and I smile broadly when a colleage comes to join me. I read a chapter from Jostein Gaarder´s The Christmas Mystery. I have afternoon coffee and a taste of the Christmas cookies with Terje......why is it that the cookies always taste best before Christmas? I look forward to a Christmas party. I open the door for a flower delivery. I cherish a beautiful handmade ornament which comes in the mail from a blog reader in Holland. I share a smile with Terje when we hear laughter from the kitchen where the girls are baking.
I lift my eyes to see the towers of Vår Frue Kirke (Our Lady´s Church) and The Cathedral and share a smile with the moon. Can you see the . moon smile?
Good days like beads on a silver string
