Sorry I've been MIA for a while.
Life has been busy
and will only get busier with this glorious new season!
I've been spending my days dilly-dallying
at the various German Christmas Markets
listening to every Christmas song I can find;
searching for the perfect poinsettia,
near-impossible baking ingredients, and
little do-dads for the flat
and my evenings decorating my humble flat
with simple, but festive delights;
Sipping hot wine and hot cocoa and various teas;
taking more baths than I have all year;
writing numerous wintry Prague postcards to send
as Christmas cards; and
watching tons of old Christmas movies
(Home Alone and Jingle All the Way are my favs)
and my weekends attending Christmas parties
in holiday dresses with gourmet meals to feast on;
cooking and baking for parties,
students, and friends; and
making lists and checking them twice!
And, this weekend we'll be taking a little day trip
to Dresden to see more "genuine" German Christmas Markets!
Then home, to Florida, it is for me on the 20th!
I am thrilled to spend 15 days with my family,
but am also dreading it because I'm not ready for it to come and go
