My beloved niece FaceTimed us today, and she was baking gingerbread cookies together with my mom, my sister, and her nice’s three siblings. Since we were FaceTiming, we got to be part of the Swedish traditions as well. Gotta love technology.
Liz has been cooking Thanksgiving food like crazy here today, and it has smelled delicious! I’ve gotten to taste some too. YUM. Can’t wait to eat all the yummy food tomorrow. Thanksgiving food is on my top list of Holiday foods. I love it. I don’t eat the turkey since I’m vegetarian, but everything else. Our friend, J, has spent the afternoon with us and it has been cozy times with a lot of good conversations. Tomorrow, we’re heading over to Liz’s parents’ place in morning, and will spend a cozy day there. Once Thanksgivng is over, it’s time to decorate for Christmas, so prepare for a lot of Holiday pictures on the blog in the near future.
A bit scary…but I’m doing it anyway!
Ok. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced the weeks going by this fast before in my whole life. It’s insane. Soon, I’ve been in school for a month! Have had my first exam (as of yesterday), received my first A on a paper (yay!), about to have my second paper done, and my second exam. Phu. But now it’s Saturday and Liz and I are gonna meet up with some friends, do some grocery shopping, and then just hang out by the pool, grill, and just be for the rest of the day!
Sitting on our balcony now, it’s 10-ish and I’m wearing a sweater for the first time in forever it seems like. It’s still around the 80’s/25-ish and sunny every afternoon here, so too warm for sweaters (except perhaps inside, where the AC is running, and in the mornings – typical NC mountain weather). Drinking my morning coffee (as usual) while typing here, and it just feels so good. I love my life.
A photo shoot with web camera on the balcony just a few minutes ago. Enjoy 😉
have been studying some today and will hopefully finish the test i am working on tomorrow. deadline is on monday. plenty of time left. plenty. talked some with my sister on msn. awesome. miss her so much but it’s great to communicate like this when you are so far from each other.
now it’s about time to take a shower. i’m in big need of one. my love will soon be home. later on dinner, watch grey’s anatomy at m and j’s. will probably go to her parents’ house to pick up some things we need too. like a camera and a cd. yeah. over and out.
I talked and saw my sister and her kids the other week on msn.
It was awesome and so much fun!
Miss them so much…
