One month from now...

Today's date?  24 November.  One month from now - at this very moment (6pm) - we'll be lighting candles and sitting down to Danish Christmas dinner.  Eeeeek!

Yep, countdown is progressing and you can no longer hide your heads in the sand.  On Saturday afternoon I was at a Christmas craft fair at an OAPs home and enjoyed my very first æbleskiver of the season (Danish Christmas donuts).  And managed to get the flormelis (icing sugar) on my black trousers.  Selvfølgelig!  Goes with the territory! :P



Today, Monday, I'm just back home from an exhibition of Danish Christmas ornaments by Jette Frölich.  A Danish designer who's been producing Christmas ornaments for nearly 50 (count 'em!) years...



I won't be decorating our home just yet - we''ll probably start next Sunday (Adventsøndag).



And the Christmas gift shopping?  I started at the end of October (most things are wrapped and labelled) and hope to be finished by this weekend.  Go me' *\o/*

Have a marvelous Monday!
