celebrating





christmas was celebrated,
candles burning low,
cakes, clementines and
chocolates consumed,
the tree glowingly
present,
and now
to welcome
a new year.
happy new year!
see you in 
2012.

christmas market




















































































































































we went to the
christmas market
at the
distillery district,
a perfect setting.
there was a beer garden
booths with
products of many
kinds,
a giant christmas tree,
entertainment, dancers
and a choir singing,
captive reindeer,
cries of petrified
children from
the santa enclosure.
still no snow
here.

a
chill in the air,
bricks
and sticks
on
the pond
surface.

in the kitchen


















i have been busy in the kitchen,
the other day i finished making
the christmas pudding
(later than planned again)
and baked for the first time
a dundee cake.
they can be left for up to 3
months for the flavour
to improve, i am not that
patient to wait that
long, new year's day
maybe?
