Snowed in

 Whew! I say,
It is First of Advent
And you are already stuck
In a waist-deep snowdrift

Pishposh, says Kiki
Give me a hand
Or else there won´t be
Any saffron buns today

After an hour or two
We have made it
To Smultron Cottage
With all those full baskets

Filled with firewood, rosehips
And hazelnuts and birch bark
Merry first of Advent, says Kiki
Some tea, perhaps?

A merry first of Advent to all of you! 

We are snowed in, fortunately with lots of lussekatter (Swedish saffron buns). The fireside is spreading warmth and I am folding paper stars, listening to Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel´s Christmas Oratorio...

I hope too you are spending a fabulous weekend!


P.S. and yes, it should say Kiki in the waist-deep Snow and not Kiki in the Meadow, but it is a very wintry, very snowy meadow at this time of the year ;-)
