In Between the Years


Vite vite avant que l'année se termine encore!

How could it happen that it is already the end of the year? 

Here are some details of how December went by:

The advents calendars for the twins had to be ready in time

24 surprises for each twin




Christmas decorations came up

the preferred place on the bar got its special message for EG






all this activity is so exhausting



first frost arrived




frosty weather is so much better than rain




the last lanterns of the Koelreuteria



a bit different table decoration inside


eventually managed to finish a birthday gift

made another birthday gift








This is my wish for all my dear readers and, of course the very recipe from Goethe's mother, Katharina Elisabeth Goethe, 1731-1808 shall not be missing. 

« Take 12 months, strip them of envy,
Bitterness, greed, pedantry and
Carve them into 30 or 31 pieces, so that the stocks will last a year.

Each day is served up individually, made of
1 part work and 2 parts cheerfulness and humour.

Add 3 heaped teaspoons of optimism,
1 teaspoon of tolerance
1 grain of irony and a pinch of tact.

The mixture is then poured over with lots of love.
Decorate the finished dish with posies of thoughtfulness
and serve it daily with merriment. »
