i miss

having an advent calendar. with the little doors, and surprise images behind them. (alternatively, with the little doors and xmas-themed chocolate pieces behind them :).

how odd. or maybe not. when i was a child believing in god and jesus, the anticipation before christmas was the very best thing. the advent wreath with its candles, one for each week, the smell of the pine resin mingling with candlewax and smoke -- it fills me with nostalgia to see one now, though it doesn't seem to be as wide-spread a tradition over here. it would feel weird to get one myself now that i no longer believe, but i still miss it. well, at least i can still bake special cookies!

more snow! it's colder now, and if this continues, it might yet become that snowfall i look forward to. and i am drinking rooibos tea with agave syrup, and lavender from the garden ([livejournal.com profile] matociquala gave me the idea, and it's yummy).
