Last Wednesday, we hosted book club. Nils prepared glögg for three and half hours and we set out pepparkakor. Last year, I had a bad incident with glögg: getting so sick that I spent most of Christmas Day in bed. What a sad sight of affairs. So needless to say, I had a hard time drinking my cup of glögg during book club without remembering my 24 hour throw-up fest and the lethargy that swallowed my body last Christmas. When book club was over, I still had more than half of glögg in my cup. So sad. It's actually so tasty it's a waste to waste.
On Saturday, we went to Holiday Party '09 and drank cider and Bells Christmas Ale. It was an awesome party with Christmas portraits, yummy goodies...and naked men! I almost forgot we were at Community Gardens - it started to look like a frat party.
Apparently we are expecting quite the storm over the next three days. Wonderful. But what can we do? Our plans to leave for Duluth on Thursday look postponed till the weekend. Ultimately, bumping other plans. We have made sure to stock up on food and beer though. So I guess we're set.
Side note: I haven't taken too many photos as of late.
