Vite vite avant que l'année se termine encore!
How could it happen that it is already the end of the year?

|24 surprises for each twin|

|all this activity is so exhausting|
|first frost arrived|
|frosty weather is so much better than rain|
|the last lanterns of the Koelreuteria|
|a bit different table decoration inside|
|eventually managed to finish a birthday gift|
|made another birthday gift|
This is my wish for all my dear readers and, of course the very recipe from Goethe's mother, Katharina Elisabeth Goethe, 1731-1808 shall not be missing.
« Take 12 months, strip them of envy,
Bitterness, greed, pedantry and
Carve them into 30 or 31 pieces, so that the stocks will last a year.
Each day is served up individually, made of
1 part work and 2 parts cheerfulness and humour.
Add 3 heaped teaspoons of optimism,
1 teaspoon of tolerance
1 grain of irony and a pinch of tact.
The mixture is then poured over with lots of love.
Decorate the finished dish with posies of thoughtfulness
and serve it daily with merriment. »
