Normally I would think that december is a rather hard month to stay on track – and it might be.
..the traditional food in advent (which we celebrate by lighting one candle the first sunday, two the second etc) is everywhere and easy to access – I do have two jars of gingerbread's in my cupboard and some french cheese in the fridge that goes perfectly with it...
But I suddenly realized that november has been very hard for me. I have moved and all free time has been spent driving back and forth with boxes and unpacking and fixing stuff. I am not finished but the remaining things can wait, at least until this very cold weather lifts...
And I feel rather peaceful about december and looking forward to try to find routines and happiness in my "new" life. I still have some hard hurdles with my economy but will try not to get to much anxiety over it.
Right now I am making a paper – the last one for this year and the next will not be until february.
I have been taking care of a dog for friends who went to Svalbard for ten days, it has been stressing because it has been hard to combine with full time work. It has convinced me that I can not have a dog for the moment, I will have to wait until things changes.
Another picture from the typical swedish advent – these electrical candles are not in my window but mine are almost identical. These you see everywhere during december..
