Now we start to decorate.
We almost got some sunshine this morning too but just as the sun was going to rise above the horizon clouds came and covered it. But so far the clouds are rather thin and I can sort of see the sun through them. We’re moving towards colder temperatures now and even if it still is rather warm I can feel the change coming. By the end of next week we’ll have below 0 C (32 F) all day long, we even might get some snow.
I put up the light-chains yesterday instead of looking at cross-country skiing and I can honestly say it looks just as bad as last year 🙂 🙂 🙂 Instead of looking like a dead crow this year it can look like the head of a crane or a very stylized spruce 🙂 I’ve found the brand on these chains on the internet so I’ll most possibly order some extra so I can place them as I really wish 🙂 But if that happens this year or next I can’t say 🙂
Today it’s only one month left to Yule, well for us it’s one day less since we have Yule eve as our big day. Yule starts here more or less next week with the first of Advent, finally we too have something to look forward too since we have no holidays during autumn. So this week is the start of our Yule decorating. The electric advent candlesticks will start to shine in the windows, the advent candlesticks with four “normal” candles will be brought out from the storage and the advent stars will also be hung up in our windows.
I’ll also place my little potted spruce in my living room and dress it with straw figures, glitter and a small multi colored light-chain. It has grown some since last Yule so this year I think it will look less over decorated 🙂 I might even make some tiny fake Yule presents to place around it 🙂 I haven’t cared about decorating my home for several years but it’s actually quite fun 🙂
It’s time to take my dogs for a walk again and I think I’ll collect some different mosses and lichens to decorate my advent candlestick. I don’t think the hunters are out there today, otherwise I’ll have to wait another week.
Have a great day!
