Our last update had been in the "incubator" for a while prior to our pushing the "send" button and we had no more done that and the temperature here dropped pretty drastically. Had a night or two with - 10 C . Presently it is warmer, just slightly above freezing and it is snowing fat, plump and juicy snowflakes, it is very pretty out there. Ralle loves it! He, just as Una and Rontu used to, goes out there to lay in the snow then lays there still until he gets covered by snow and we can hardly find him! It is and looks very Christmasy.
On that note we had the pleasure to attend a traditional JULBORD this week end at Örenäs Castle!

Or tell you we had so much fun, have not laughed so hard in a while. One of the guests a really neat guy who hales from London was telling us stories about language problems when he first struggled with Swedish, priceless stories that had us all in stitches!!
Oh man...... I could continue by talking about dessert, Irish Coffee, candies, chocolate, almond cookies with whipped cream and jam, Rice a la Malta.
No, I have to stop.
Before I go into a "food coma" I will take both Ralle and David for a walk around the field in the falling snow. Ah, that felt good.
Now there is a chicken roasting in the oven, stuffed with lemon, thyme (had to unearth it from a layer of snow) and garlic. Will have mashed potatoes and green beans tossed with toasted garlic slivers and crushed red pepper on the side along with a little salad......... who was talking about "food coma" ?
