Be Jolly By Golly Blogfest


I'm tired and bored with life. Not very Christmassy, huh? But here's my "Christmas lights". I have two IKEA light wreaths in living room in stead of a tree.

I have been cleaning, decorating and baking the last couple of days. Cookie jars are more than full of cookies, the fridge and freezer are full of Yule food and now all I can do is sit and wait for tomorrow. It's the Midwinter's Day tomorrow, winter solstice. :-) Yule.

These are spoon cookies.

We will be watching the Polar Express movie, eating cookies and drinking our version of "butterbeer" - that's just caramelized sugar with milk and a spoonful of real butter melted into it and whisked frothy.

Have a lovely Midwinter, all of you :-)

The festive lights look very seasonal. I've never seen spoon cookies before: they look delicious.
Happy Holidays :)

Did you know there's going to be a full lunar eclipse on the winter solstice? You can toast it with great cookies.

Hey, very neat, those spoon cookies! Nifty shape. Good for you, filling those cookie jars! You're so industrious. Sounds like a fun tradition, watching the movie, eating cookies, and drinking your "butterbeer." Merry Christmas!

My grandmother hangs her Christmas decorations on her lights as well. It looks exactly the same.

I'd love to jump on those lights and smash all the ornaments on the ground. Greetings from Avalon the cat.

Ok, ok, is everyone coming ?? You gotta bring your own jammies and teddy bears - I am NOT sharing those :D

Sometimes we get bored with life - we can't control if it's at the holidays or not! I'm scared to try making the butterbeer myself. Is it good?
