December 27, 2016 Church Christmas decoration

The church right near us, has typical traditional Christmas decorations on their trees. It’s very simple, but it’s just like people decorated their trees in many regions of Austria for hundreds of years. Today, it’s mainly found in churches and rural areas. Ever since the Victorian era, people started to have more colorful decorations.

I’m loving colorful baubles and ornaments on my tree at home, but I do like to look at the traditional ones too. Thought I’d share

December 24, 2016 at 6:30am on Christmas morning

Morning of the 24th 6:46am

Woke up pretty early, at 6:30am and I just could not sleep anymore. Wanted to finish putting up the last few decorations on the tree, like my birdies and a couple more baubles. It was still completely dark outside and so I switched the Christmas tree lights on 😺 Murli was still soooo sleepy in that picture!

6:40am, shortly after getting up. Only the lights on the tree were on.

Morning of the 24th 7:09am

After Murli had her breakfast, she relaxed while watching me finish decorating the tree.

This whole week our city was covered in a thick fog, and it’s the same today. But at the same time it’s pretty lovely, since the Christmas lights are on everywhere, including many windows where people put lights and decorations. It’s definitely more “Christmasy” this way, than last year, where we had sunshine and 20°C outside, where it felt like we’re in the middle of spring.

Have a lovely day for now everyone!❤️

December 20, 2016 Soon it’s Christmas

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!
