  1. Dear Readers,
    these are old pictures, again.
    Between yesterday and today I have cleaned the house (well, apartment), trimmed the tree, decorated a bit, had dinner with friends, baked a few batches of cookies, wrapped about a dozen gifts, accidentally opened a package that arrived by mail (and was not supposed to be opened), did all my Christmas feast grocery shopping, and now, I am a little tired, but happy.
    A little miracle has taken place:
    All our Amazon UK and DE packages have already arrived, even though I ordered only last Friday. Miracles made possible by the Austrian Postal Services, they managed to beat the odds, what with many of the European Christmas mailings stuck in airports around snowbound Europe.
    The snow is melting slowly, but we are told that a new cold front is coming in on the 24th, probably with fresh snow. Let's hope that everybody has safely arrived at their destination by then, without further havoc!
    Christmas greetings,

  2. Wow Merisi you have been a very busy bee!! So amazing that your parcels managed to get to you , and from the UK , and we (people) here are still having major problems with deliveries , and have had to go out and do last minute shopping!!

    Thank you for all your wonderful posts throughout the year , so beautiful too. Merry Christmas and best wishes from Oxfordshire UK

  3. Christmas Greetings to you, Merisi. And now that most of the work is done you'll have plenty of time to stand under the mistletoe and get all those well-deserved kisses! Have a beautiful holiday.

  4. So happy for your little miracle - it sounds as if you're ready to enjoy Christmas. I'm experiencing it all virtually now, through your wonderful photos, and yes, we are now re-planning for Vienna in the spring. I wish you a very happy and peaceful Christmas! All best wishes,

  5. Liebe Merisi!
    Ich wünsche dir frohe Weihnachten! Möge dein "feast" gelingen ;-) Viele tolle Geschenke und ein tolles Jahr mit weiteren tollen Posts!
    Liebste Grüße,

  6. Ooooh, you have been a busy little bee!

  10. Merry Christmas, Merisi, to you and your family!

    My favorite of these photos is Schokolade König....I adore that sweet little girl statuette with the puppy.

  11. Well done, Merisi! Time for a little sit-down and a nice melange?
