On my walk today...


These are some pictures of what I saw. The sun tried to peak out from behind the clouds, and the world brightened up at once.

And after getting up at 6 to take my sister to work, helping at the restaurant, and going for a walk, watching the ski jumping and almost falling asleep amidst the excitement, I do believe an early night will be in order.
I forgot to go and buy food yesterday. Tomorrow. It is on the list. The supermarkets do not open on Sundays here. And I have no energy to attempt baking today. That will be tomorrow too. In fact tomorrow is shaping up to be a Very Busy Day. I also need to wrap my presents for my family here, because I didn't do them at home in case customs were unamused by my elegant wrappings. And there is the small matter of buying something to cook on Christmas Day too. In Switzerland, the main Christmas celebration is on Christmas Eve. We are eating at the restaurant with all the family and friends here, and there has been mention of a Bavarian Christmas meal of Bratwurst and sauerkraut. Or was it meatloaf?? Either will be just fine.
I do believe we will have chicken with stuffing and all the trimmings for Christmas Day. I am cooking so I get to decide.
Lists.... I need to make lists..... I will be back after I have a little snooze.....

Ahhh! Lists! That's what I need. I feel as if I'm flying by the seat of my pants.

That photo of the sun coming through is wonderful...

Best wishes with your VBD (very busy day)!

It is all so lovely Linds. My husband was just in here, and I showed him the pictures from the last few posts. We've decided dinner at Duke's would be just the thing. How nice and cozy it looks.
Have a good snooze. Sounds like a great plan.

Your "voice" sounds so happy - and I am so happy for you! Brats and sauerkraut sounds good!
