Happy Advent!

Today is First of Advent here in Sweden, which more or less starts the festive season. The lights are up along with the candlesticks with four candles. One for each Sunday until Christmas. Gingerbread cookies is also a must and so is mulled wine. Being a gingerbread cookie addict I finished off one box (yes one big box) already two weeks ago so I haven't got a new one. What's out of the house is of the mind. Or almost out of the mind...

In a perfect world the weather should be clear, cold and crisp, but here it is as usual mild, wet and rainy. But no wind for a change. Seeing all the lights though, makes such a change and in only three weeks the days will get longer again. I made it through November this year too.
