Happy New Year! How are things? We’re busy with life, as usual. The first snow has come and gone, and the second snow is still here. I’m glad to have some green things around. My hyacinth bulbs from a year ago persisted despite my “care” and are about to blossom again, yay!
(I don’t force my flowers. As long as they survive, I’m happy.)
We got rid of our Christmas tree quite some time ago, but these trimmed branches are still doing fine in the basement:
Note to self: If we ever need to have a very minimal Christmas, this idea would do well for a little “tree”. :)

We got our Christmas tree this weekend from our yard, like last year. This one looks better, I think!
In the front hall, I set one of my prized Scandinavian-style electric candle sets, our Finnish straw goat and Danish straw pig, the Finnish himmeli and a vase of leftover brances from the pine (barely visible on the floor).
I’m off for the rest of the year. Hyvää joulua ja onnellista uutta vuotta!
