Peter found a series of old German Christmas songs in the computer. It was very rewarding to be able to listen to all these songs while celebrating the First of Advent.

We listened to a lot of Christmas songs by different groups and artists. They all sang the German texts that we are still quite familiar with, bringing back memories to what it was like when we were children. Here some names of the songs: O Tannenbaum, O du fröhliche, Ave Maria, Kling Glöckchen kling, Leise rieselt der Schnee, and so on.
We had tea and German ‘Oblaten Lebkuchen’.
Then I could not help myself taking a few more pictures!
Thanks, Robyn, for posting this!

I think this is a fascinating article in the International Spiegel. How could it come to these ‘misunderstandings’ between Europe and Russia? There is a war in the Ukraine now. Why?
A lot of the party food had chicken in it. I tried to find food with no chicken. There were lots of sweets too. But I did not go for any sweets today. I had a cup of coffee though.
This cheese was very nice.
Marta proudly holds up some of the food that she had brought along.
Edith as cheerful as ever.

Whoever wanted to do some heart move exercises could join in.

Today, Thursday, we met for Marta’s class for the last time this year. There are no classes for December and January. The next heart move class is going to be on the first Thursday in February. Today I did not join in any of the exercises because of a sore knee. There is probably some kind of inflammation in the knee. I hope it is going to get better soon.
