3. SØNDAG I ADVENT / 3. SUNDAY OF ADVENT



Så er tre lys tent i adventstaken, og det er bare 10 dager igjen til julaften. Jeg sitter og strikker og strikker for å få ferdig et julegaveprosjekt som skal sendes, pakkefristen er jo på tirsdag. Tror jeg skal få det ferdig i kveld, kanskje feste trådene i morgen.Det er nå jeg tenker at neste år må jeg huske å lage julegaver tidligere!!! Til uka står kakebaking på programmet. Det blir nok ikke alle de sju slaga, men ihvertfall fire. Sandkaker, krumkaker, kakemenner og pepperkaker. Forrige uke bakte jeg kransekake. Halvparten lager jeg som en liten kransekake, den andre halvparten som stenger.Kanskje det også kan regnes blant de sju? Glemte å ta bilde av den, nå ligger den i fryseren.

Today is three candles lit, and it is only ten days to Christmas Eve. I am knitting and knitting to get ready with a Christmas gift project that I am going to send by mail, it should be sent by Tuesday to be sure to reach at Christmas Eve. I think I shall get it finished tonight, maybe weave in the ends tomorrow. It is the time for thinking that next year I must remember to make the Christmas gifts earlier!!! Next week it is time for baking Christmas cookies. I Norway the old tradition says there shall be 7 different kind of cookies for Christmas. It will not be seven, but at least four. I don't know any English names on all - Sandkaker, krumkaker, white cookiemen, gingerbread men. I will show pictures when I have made them. Last week I baked Kransekake - a kind of almond cakes/cookies, I forgot to take pictures, now they are in the freezer.


Her er et stemningsbilde fra turen vår igår.

No snow here! pictures you see are from last year, when I had to do an open-air flea market and it snowed so much that almost noone came..lucky me. This year it's a mess with weather..rain, snow and lots of catastrophes in other parts of Italy, but here 10-11 degrees during daytime..no winter at all!!
