Spice racks als bookshelves. Men at work! Assembling spice racks for the use of bookshelves. The first light of advent is the light of stones. The light that shines in seashells, crystals and in bones. Today we light our first candle and add crystals to our season table.

Advent is a very special time of year. a time of moving through the darkness toward the yearly rebirth of light, when the days begin to grow longer. a festival celebrating the returning of the light... We celebrate advent as a four week festival - the four weeks leading up to christmas and solstice - and during this time, we deepen our relationship to the world around us by recognizing and celebrating the strength and beauty of all four of the kingdoms of the natural world. These are the ones I mentioned in the post before. On our wishlist for next year. Available at @sterrendaalders. Our new season table all set up. A mix of advent time and Saint Nicholas, which we will celebrate on December 5th. I do love the Saint Nicholas and Pete from @sterrendaalders. Maybe next year. For the advent, the first week will be about the mineral world, the second week will be about the plant kingdom, the third week about the animal kingdom and the last week about us as people. And then we arrived at the Winter Solstice (Yule) and we will celebrate the rebirth of the light. Winter wonder land! @miss__neriss Right now, I am doing the first stitch part of the wooleater and after this I like to make a broad edge. Just normal crochet stitches? Fresh snow! πŸ˜ƒ Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! What are you thankful for?

What am I thankful for? I am thankful for my husband and kids and that they are doing well. I am thankful for myself and the inner work I am doing. I am thankful for my cup of tea in the morning surrounded with some me-time while the kids are playing. I am thankful for my new friends, I wouldn't know how I would land in this new place without you. I am thankful for my lifelong friends who stand by me through every endeavor. I am thankful for my family, my parents, my brother and sisters. I am thankful that we as a family are able to enjoy life every day. I am thankful that we have food and water and that we are blessed with good health. I am thankful for all those days of sunshine which help me with my health. I am thankful for Instagram, Whatsapp, Skype, Facetime that keeps us connected to our friends and family all over the world. I am thankful for this amazing homeschool community that we are part of and I am thankful for this little one growing inside me.
