A message came through via email yesterday. Richard, a friend from Germany, was hoping to get a photo from Canada. The photo is for some sort of a competition. Although it is not clear exactly what it is about he needed an image from as far away geographically from Germany as possible and the photo has to have the word Wichtelhütte in it.
Wichtelhütte means gnome house or little people house. The irony that I live (~half the year) in a Tiny House with a bunch of Gnomes placed in the surrounding forest was not lost on me. How could I resist?
I enjoyed a wonderful Solstice at my Wichtelhütte, a Norse Yule with friends in Kingston, Christmas with my sister and her family in the countryside, and today a smooth trip back to Hamilton to have a further holiday celebration with family here.
My days are currently filled with fun stuff to do with people who hold great meaning to me, and lots of wonderful things to eat too. Life is great!
No matter how you choose to spend the last days of December 2012 I hope that you have enjoyed days as wonderful as those I have shared with my loved ones.
