When I wrote the last post, I could not imagine such a warm response. After I published it, I turned off the computer hoping that too many of you would not be disappointed. I have been reading your comments and they have touched me. Thank you, I did not expect this at all and I do write this to you, not to myself, I have my bedside diary for me, so I’m glad you are out there reading. Thank you again to all of you. Heavy scent is lingering in the house at the moment, it is almost too heavy. I have been baking pepparkakor today. I myself don’t care for them very much, but I love to decorate them and they belong to Christmas. I could not imagine not having them at this time of the year. Everybody seems to be making them. They are served in every single coffeeshop and there is no way you can escape from them. So me too, I bake them and the kids and the dogs love them.
I make cats for Tina. It gives her a great pleasure to have one in the morning after a night in the hay. She and Mr Kille have very weak truce and frontier incidents are almost daily and each others food bowls are raided frequently. I try not to take sides but sometimes I do have to step in. Neither of them is winning although I suspect Mr Kille would if he wanted to. I would gladly make dogs for Mr Kille but he does not like gingerbread. Unfortunately I have not found any catnip dogs, just mice.
I usually make a gingerbread house too and this year is no exception. Here are the parts, this will again be a bird feeder filled with seeds (= candy). I only make one house a year and even though I’m quite old and have had some practice, this is always a bit tricky. Lets hope this will work out and I can post a picture of it some time next week.
