How are you? I hope you all are well and healthy.
I've been away for a whole week and I think I have so much to catch up.
There is only about a week to go before holidays!
Are your season holiday preparations all done?
Have you already started to enjoy the lovely quality time
in your season decorated and tidy home?
I am sure that you all are relaxing, having good time
and just setting lights to the candles.
You are feeling so cozy with warm drink in your hand and woollen socks on your feet.
Beautifully wrapped little gifts are waiting ready under the tree...
Snowflakes outside are so light and pretty.
Children are playing and smiling.
Chocolate and chips are healthy food.
Life is like a dream!
I must admit that I still have some things to do for the holiday.
Let me think...where should I start? What do I still have to do? Hmmm...
No more or less...but everything!
Fortunately my everything is not much and
I decided to start my seasonal quality time in my non decorated home
I start it by turning on the MUSIC and
showing you what I have wrapped out from my x-mas calendar during last week.
Minnan kanssa vaihdettiin 10. päivän luukku.
Minä sain paketistani 'vanhan' oven hakoineen päivineen.
Ovikoristeeksi Minna oli vielä laittanut kauniin kukkakranssin.
ILOISTA JOULUA SINULLE ja PINJALLE!
-DAYS 11 and 12-
Mona and I swapped two 'doors'.
I received a boxfull of beautiful gifts
from all the way from Norway.
Now, I must ask you to enlarge the photo
to see better that little pencil in the front.
There is a eraser on the other end of it!
Surely Rauha can write and draw with it to those
drawing and writing books which also were in the 'door'.
And yes..there was a rocking horse too.
Now Ilona is dreaming to be a child again....
Mona had made a X-mas stocking and a card holder for me.
There was also a tiny envelope..with my name on it!
AND some extras!!!
Mona is so sweet!
She sent presents to Rauha and Ilona too.
-DAYS 13 and 14-
TUIKUlla ja minulla oli myös sovittuna kahden luukun vaihto.
Tuikun yllätykset pikkukortteineen näyttävät niin söpöiltä!
Luukkuun 13 Tuikku oli pyöräyttänyt lime-piiraan,
vaalean punaiset mukit ja liinan.
14. luukusta löysin maatuskan, tuohikorin ja saunan lämpömittarin.
IHANAA JOULUA SINULLE!
I am going to wear my woollen socks
and go to the sofa with a soft blanket.
There I'll have a nice cup of tea.
Feeling cozy and merry...
You do the same!
-Have a great weekend-
