(I had this idea on Thursday while working out what to do with my Hauskreis and started thinking this post on Friday. I didn’t get it down on screen paper until today.)
I have a LOT of things, people and events to be thankful for right now, and a lot to look forward to next year.
Advent itself is also already full of things which are [hopefully] going to happen. Since getting on the train I’ve written a list of all the things I need to do and/or pack before Christmas. I covered 3 sides of A4 and had to stop before I had a breakdown because I ran out of paper (the 4th side was used up before I started).
So that’s Thanksgiving and Advent sorted, but what are the 2 days in between for?
I think ‘just being’ is as good a thing as any.
I spent just under 48 hours in Berlin, during which I made a huge lasagne, helped DB make and decorate 4 trays of biscuits, went shopping twice, picked DB’s folks up from their cruise, visited them, made and hung up 24 chocolate-and-nut-filled serviette-bags (DB’s Advent calendar), and generally dossed in a comfortable sort of way.
