The snow the Swedish weather site unpredicted yesterday seems now predicted again but the Norwegian still says only rain. I do trust the Norwegian more than the Swedish so I hope they are right. Today however have been mostly rainy but it has been misty rain most of the time so I doubt we’ve gotten especially much. It is a weather that doesn’t want You to go outside but rather sit indoors reading a good book or watching a movie.
I felt the smell of a burning candlestick at work the other week and suddenly I was back in school sitting by my bench listening to my teacher reading a book. The teacher I had from grade 4 to grade 6 always read from a book every school day in December. As soon as we had come in to the classroom we sat down lit a small candle we placed on our desks. She turned of the lamps except for a small one she had at her desk and started to read. I especially remember one book she read, it was about a Jewish family hiding during WW2 and it was awfully exiting.
While she was reading a chapter or two from the book we all had something to eat, like ginger bread or a bun and I think we all drank a soda we call Julmust. She sometimes managed to read two books during that month if they were the shorter kinds. She was a smart woman because after we had been listening to her and had that gingerbread we all had calmed down and had no problems with starting with what ever was the first subject for the day 🙂
There’s nothing good with November. The days just get shorter and shorter and we have no holiday to look forward to. The only good thing this year is that the first of advent is on the 27th. Christmas more or less starts then and it won’t be that long until it turns towards longer days again. The closer to christ,as the better the tv programs get 🙂 and we have Lucia on December 13th, the only catholic saint we Swedes celebrates 🙂
It is time for a pot of tea and something to eat I think. All animals are sleeping and I feel I perhaps should take a nap too 🙂
Have a great day!
