Yesterday my DH mixed the dough for the Stollen. It's a big recipe and there's no way I could mix it myself, even he had a bit of a problem. Oh well, it got made. It looks very flat when first put on the pans but it does rise nicely. This morning before he left for his volunteer "job" I iced one so he could take it along for their coffee break.
This tin Advent calendar is different in that it counts days left until Christmas. The sheep and the star are magnetic and I just move it as the days pass.
Have I shown you our Advent wreath? We have it in the sunroom where we two eat our meals. I took this picture last week when we only lit the one candle. The three other candles come from the Holy land and have pictures on them. Rather than burn those I've substituted some ordinary ones this week. We like to have them lit when we eat our suppers there.
We had a day of mild temperatures and I managed to get my walk in before it began to rain. Which it did on and off all day. I stopped at the little library and was pleased to see the ashes and half-burnt books had been removed and it was all neat again. Luckily it's made of metal and didn't burn ( it once held newspapers). If it's not raining tomorrow I'll take a picture of it.
Thanks for stopping by, GM
