And something new for those of you who do follow me:
Yesterday’s post was quite useless in my opinion, but I left it published once I put it out there.
I have not dyed my hair since February. The dark brown color that I had been dying it with for a while has faded somewhat. You can clearly see my own color and even the grey/very light hairs (they shine quite well in sunlight) on the top 6 or so inches. I haven’t had my hair trimmed since late spring, which makes the length of my hair past my shoulders and still growing. I’m not sure when I’ll get it cute next, nor what I’ll do with it, but for now, it is just growing.
While Xmas is a quiet event here in Finland, unlike with my family in the US where we have a huge party on Xmas eve, I still look forward to it (usually). Our Xmas eve dinner here in Finland makes up for the Turkey-day meal we don’t have here. (The Mayflower, Pinta & Santa Maria (is there more?) just didn’t land here.) The left overs that last for days…I’m in heaven!!
I have the 23rd off from work this year, so Mr Siili, the cats and I will head to his parents house, as usual. His mom makes most of the savory foods, with some help from me and I make most of the sweet things. This year will be no exception. I’m planning on making chocolate chip cookies, coconut macaroons and I think Chocolate Crinkles.
Happy Holidays, whatever it is you choose to celebrate (or not)!

I should try to get a new one with Rusty & Mansi.
