22 and counting

Can you see me in that round thing? It's me with my camera and an orange apron. The best we can see is my hand holding the camera.

Most things are ready. Tree is up since the beginning of December. Also the crib. Presents are bought and wrapped - most of them, tomorrow I will buy the remaining things. My mother is in charge of ordering the cabbage to the soup of Christmas Eve - Caldo Verde, a portuguese institution for that Holy night - and also the "grelos" - another kind of cabbage to go with the cod. And because we are a portuguese-english home, she is in charge of ordering the lamb kidneys too, to our Christmas breakfast.

Time now to get off the computer and do some cleaning and tidying.
