I may have already mentioned that my sister has more Christmas spirit than Santa's elves...She got busy today "making Christmas" in the apartment. We strung Christmas lights, bought pine boughs, made cranberry ginger scones...perfect for a rainy Berlin day. And for dinner we made a big pot of borscht. Enough to feed a peasant village. Today was both a recovery from yesterday, and a warm-up for tomorrow's Christmas intensity: a four-hour baking class with Stollen, Lebkuchen, and Plätzchen on the program. Yes!
