Only a few days, then it’s Christmas again! We are looking forward to it, as it’s our most favorite holiday. Our Christmas evenings on the 24th are always really nice, peaceful, cozy and happy. Murli gets treats and gifts and has fun with the eventual additional boxes too.

I decorated a bit, and will decorate a little bit more every day before the 24th. Papa (Dad) and I will get the tree either tomorrow or Thursday. I have seen kitty ornaments in a little lovely store downtown! They have mouses too! I needz it!!! Totally needz it. Murli says so too! I already have a couple of birds😸 (Not putting up pictures of it yet, because that way it’s more fun if you see the tree when it’s all done)

Papa has has made his delicious vanilla crescent cookies! And I made a big dent into that cookie box already lol. The recipe is just sooo good. Mama used to make them and Papa makes them perfectly. Murli always looks at me with her big eyes like “Give me! Give me sum! Wat u waitin fur?!” but I can’t give her anything, due to her allergies. She is doing so well now, I do not even dare to give her those few tiny crumbs I used to let her have before I knew that she has food allergies. I don’t want to risk it. But I might figure out how to bake treat cookies for her myself. Just need to find a recipe that would work for her.

The weather was being crazy like usual last week. One day sunny and warm, the other day dreary and cold. But it seems like it will stay dreary for a bit now, and rather cold. But at least that won’t cause me so many migraines! Hopefully…

Murli on Sunday morning (December 18)

Yesterday, on December 19, the morning was especially dark again. When we woke up, I thought it was a lot earlier than it really was lol. The photos were taken past 8am when I was running a few errands. It was also really cold, especially next to the river lol. Since Graz is pretty much in the foothills to the Alps, we are higher up at about 350m to 400m above sea-level. So we are often caught in dense fog during the winter. On days where the fog is really thick and it’s cloudy as well, it’s just dark. Today was the same, but my migraines are better when it’s cold and dark ;-)

A little later it started to snow a little. It was just tiny little bit and didn’t stay. I think it might have just been frozen fog, and if it’s like usual, we won’t be getting any more than that. But I would like it if the frozen fog could fall on the 24th and 25th 😸

Have a nice Tuesday evening furiends!

2:20pm in the afternoon, on my way home, this is next to the river Mur, the bridge is right there, at the end of the walkway

The river Mur. There are walkways to both sides of the river and they go for miles and miles. (View = North)

This is on the other end of the bridge. There are walkways on both sides of the river and they’re great for taking walks, and beautiful. (View = North)

The bridge crosses also over this street. The walkway from the previous photo is to the right of the trees. (View = North)

That’s the same street, just from the other side. (View = South)

I love taking to take photos, even if I just go from A to B for other reasons. I take the most pictures during fall and winter, by far. Just because everything looks more interesting somehow. It’s my favorite season :-)
