About being Martha..

Looking back, just the last few weeks...

Decorated the house, sent the cards, baked the cookies, kneaded the bread, made wreaths, wrapped the presents, hauled the groceries, cleaned the house, but no, I can't make it snow!

A simple welcome for guests on our front door.

Another wreath

A moment of peace captured in pixels. Not cluttered for once and only briefly..

Timo's class school dinner: "cooking with stars"
There were 6 of them, each had their own designated kitchen counter area, but hey, it is far more interesting to watch the others.
Dividing and weighing dough for their christmas dinner rolls.

And finally baked oliebollen, enough to feed an army, but that is only what I think...they will all be eaten by family, friends and guests by the first of January.

Which is traditionally greeted with the New Years concert, ski jumping at Garmisch Partenkirchen and a buffet with all "left overs" and the family recipe of salmon spread.


  1. Short of really being there, thanks for a small taste of your virtual season.
    Enjoy all that quiet moment. Looking forward to a wonderful 2007 with you here. Loved all our laughs!

  2. Ik ben dan wel van 'de streek', maar dat zalmsalade zo'n traditie was wist ik niet. Lien had het er ook al over over haar weblog. Volgend jaar doe ik mee want ik ben dol op zalm.



Thanks for visiting! I really appreciate and enjoy reading all your comments! If you have any questions feel free to email me.
