Palmier slivers and a mega cool Christmas song # 16.

A strong wind blowing outside. It makes roaring noises as it storms through the trees in the orchard. When I come down the stairs Sophie is curled up and sound asleep. She wakes with that 'Where am I' look on her face.

After she's had a few moments to compose herself ( and have her harness put on ) Sophie's out with her brother to watch the school bus pass the gate. This morning there is much activity on the other side of the lane. It seems The Old Farmer has sold his trailer. He shouts instructions from his balcony as  two men in a white VW van attempt to tow it away. The Old Farmer is in the process of 'decluttering'. A stage of life thing. Eagle eyed readers will spot the new pole that supports his Christmas star.

A more festive display at the bakers this morning. The pretty girl that serves behind the counter is back at work. The PONs recognize her a someone who can be counted on to give them some slivers of choux pastry. Bob graces her with his 'I love you look'. Sophie lets her tail bang against the display counter.

This morning they get some Palmier slivers.

Some Swedes sing 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing' while a man in Hawaii listens and makes noises.
Guess this is mega cool. There are subtitles. Christmas song #16 :

That Tresse Chocolat thing looks nice - I wouldn't mind one for supper.

Love the Pons photo - life is interesting in your lane. Not sure about the star on a stick - I guess it is kind of festive.

The baker has received his delivery of food coloring.
No more romantic getaways for the OF and the Belgian Lady? Isn't there a Swedish term for late life decluttering?

Dostadning is the Swedish word. I used to think of it as a rather brutal. Now being older and having seen parents go through the process it seems quite natural.

entertaining vid - and truly gorgeous singing! Yes, dostadning is a worthwhile pursuit. I make a habit of it every five years or so. YAM xx

In the first picture, Sophie looks very puppy like. And then she shakes herself out to be the diva she has become. Magical!
