Today is a glorious day: the last day that CERN is open for 2014! Yes, CERN, the largest and most influential international laboratory in the world closes for a wonderful two and half weeks, from December 20th - January 4th. They even turn the heat off, though some crazy physicists still brave the cold. Dan luckily will not be doing that, and although he'll be working from home, Oswin and I get to spend all our time until just after the new year with our special and most favorite guy. There will be long lazy mornings with bacon and pancakes, some wintery hikes, day trips, and lots of cooking, baking and merry making. 'Tis the season, after all.
On the list for today is some forest foraging for a wreath. It'll be the first one either of us have ever made, and I'm excited to make it ourselves. Any time we can spend on the mountain together as a family is the best, and if we can bring a little Jura Mountain winter's magic back with us, well that's even sweeter.
Any wreath making tips you'd like to share?
A la prochaine friends...
