It is baking time

The boss of the household - made this

And it is stored now in tin boxes

Marillenringe - Shortbread filled with abricot jam
 
 
Kokospralinen - cookies with cocos

 

Basler Leckerli - Gingerbread cookies

Nikolausplätzchen - Santa Claus cookies

Now you would think that I have time

to sew, stitch, embroider, paint, draw, sketch, fill my diary.

Nothing of the kind........

I am cooking already for Christmas

and the time after when one part of the family will be with us.

And doing a thousand other household related things

as everybody of you, dear readers, are doing as well.

  1. Ooh I think I should come to visit for morning tea. Your baking looks like it will go very well with a cup of coffee.

    1. Oh, certainly - very good - and dangerous - 30 seconds on your tongue and 30 years on your hips.

  2. This IS a busy time of the year! I will have my worst time after Christmas when we start preparing for the Japanese new year, the most important holiday of the year here. Double punch to keep up the traditions of two different cultures!
    Hope you are having fun at the same time.
    All the best.

    1. You should inform us - your readers of your posts - about your festivities when everything is over, maybe. It would be interesting to know more about it.
