Merry Christmas all! I’m here in Norway celebrating with my parents. It’s been freezing and snowy pretty much every day. But I suppose that’s a lot more Christmassy feeling than what we had the last time we were together for the holiday.

I know, I know! I’ve been completely MIA for the past month. It’s bad. I miss you! I miss my little blog. But I have been just way too busy–flying to the West Coast twice, Christmas parties, frenzied secret santa knitting, the works. I know that I have all sorts of unfinished business to take care of, plus I also have finished business (objects) to show off (well, just one). And I’ll get to it soon. I will have renewed blogging energy in 2008. I swear.
In the meantime, I’m in sunny, muggy, hot Singapore visiting with my parents–and had the delightful experience of a vacation within a vacation to Thailand (I recommend vacations within vacations to all). So it’s really not feeling much at all like Christmas. Here are some photos to tide you over until I sit down and properly get back in the knitblogger groove.
My mom started collecting these glass Christmas trees when we lived in Taiwan; they were supercheap and pretty. When we got back to the states, we were surprised to discover that they sell here for a great deal more money. Needless to say, Mom’s collection didn’t grow after that. Still, she has dozens, and puts them out every year on their glass dining room table. It wouldn’t be Christmas without them.
More holiday decorations in my new city! My dear friend Num Num said that she loves seeing her city anew through my eyes. I hope you enjoy it, too. Another friend used a photo of these lights as his Christmas card from last year; I had to do it for myself, too. Consider this my holiday card to all of you: I couldn’t get it together to mail any out for real this year.
