Covered in white, cold stuff.
Is it?! Great!
I love snow! Only in the winter of course
So tell me, what are Jello shots?
Snow! Snow snow snow! I like it...
Ah, the cold white stuff. Lovely.
Last weekend we had about two feet of snow then monday it
got up to 70
degrees and all melted. But now this morning its snowing again.
Jello shots are just cubes of jello with Vodka in the Jello.
How are things in Germany?
oh right. I could have guessed it has something to do with alcohol
Things are okay in Germany Pete
I so hope that we will have snow for christmas! At the moment it doesn't look too good.
Talking about Christmas
How is the shopping going for everyone?
I have ideas for nearly everyone but I still have to buy nearly everything.
Hope you all dind't forget to lighten the second candle on your Advent wreath
The snow has thawed here, and it is raining tonight. But I expect more snow to come before Christmas. If not, I saved some in the freezer...
So far I have bought presents only for myself.
Jule, I'm about the same, I have ideas for most people, but I haven't bought that much yet.
It's not that I don't want to go shopping.
But I simply hate it, when the shops are so packed as they are at the moment...
Maybe I'll do all my shopping with the help of the internet
And if I can't come up with anything else I still can mug Matt and Dom
I'm glad I've only just read this
Hope everyone is well and the snow sounds good!!
There has been snow in the UK but not where I live, but our time will come
And I hate to feel smug, but I've done all my Christmas shopping
And guys, it's Jelly, not Jello
Sounds like you've been having fun though Pete
I might be going ice skating soon so please reframe from telling us more horror stories that involve ice skating and teeth
What about ice skating and cut of fingers?
Ice skating is the wonderful!!!!!! I love it, as long as you avoid those horrible figure skating skates. You can't skate properly on them, and the pointy things just get stuck.
I must say though that I love Christmas shopping, even when the strees are totally crowded. I learned that if you just go around and don't stress up about it, then it's really cosy. One of my favourite things is going out on the evening of the 23rd (in Sweden we celebrate on Christmas eve), just before the shops close, and when most people have gone home to do the last preparations. If you are lucky the shops have also starting to already change the prices for the sale that starts on the 26th, so you can do some nice finds.
Don't go there Jule, that's my worse fear and I'm trying not to think about it
I'm feeling nervous enough as it is
I don't think I could ever leave Christmas shopping until the very last minute, I'd have sleepless nights worrying too much
I also try to go out in the evenings when things are a bit calmer. This time of year shops are open until 10 pm which is handy and has a nice atmosphere about it. And my local town has a Bavarian market so I can stock up on some stollen
Although I've made my own Christmas cake this year and it's maturing very nicely....needs a top up of Brandy though
My teeth are doing quite swell now.
And ice skating is just as much fun as it always was.
Well, I still have to do all my christmas shopping.
Hmm, what to buy for everyone?
I think tommorow sounds like a good day to go shopping.
I'm happy that I've done all Christmas shopping already.
