Ok, instalment #2: “Serenity brings on the X-mas spirit, part 1”.
On Saturday, Serenity’s very good friend Andrea came to visit, and Serenity used the opportunity to schedule some activities to introduce the X-mas spirit to her current environment. Of course, these included the eating of much Stollen. (Not sure if you are starting to see a theme here, but yes, for me, “Liebe geht durch den Magen” (German proverb saying, “love goes through the stomach”)...
and so does travel and home. Just wait till you see the pictures of the
Eisbein I intend to have soon... but I digress).
Of course, X-mas spirit is a lot about decorations and music. I played five of my favourite X-mas compilation CDs (yes, five). Those of you who were at the Yak that day would have heard a lot of the songs; plenty of Bing Crosby and the like, but also some choral and symphony orchestra renditions.
For decoration, I trudged into the basement to get out the old Weihnachtspyramide.
Again, those of you who were at the Yak that day might remember my telling you about those, and that Jane had found an SL one to put up there.
Here are a few pics of ours, which we had since I was quite little, and which, every year, gets a little more singed at the wings, as it keeps stopping when the room gets too warm...
hang on, my mom is calling to give the pyramid a little push.
Aaaaah... childhood flashback (Darned thing!) .
OK, part 2 coming up... :)
