It's D Time!





The light is almost gone, soon Polar Night will be over us. That means it's vitamin D Time for the Arctics: We get a bottle of cod liver oil (with lemon, mind you, takes the taste almost away) and enjoy ourselves.

Did I mention I've started making cushions from retro fabric? I like people with a past, and fabric too. I made the green one from a 70s curtain, it's been a witness to bowl-drinking parties, Roger Whittaker listening (at least that's what my parents listened to) and cigarette smoking in crazy coloured dresses while serving fondue, kids who had to watch themselves,(yes, I saw the brilliant The Ice Storm) while the women fought for equality, I have no idea what the men did.

(what's really in that cod liver oil?)

Hmm - sounds lovely ;-)

It's dark here at 5pm now - as the clocks changed at the weekend but at least it is lighter in the morning!

The pillows are great. And I can't believe your child is taking that without force! Goodbye, light.

I want to wear a crazy coloured dress & serve fondue! Love the trip you took us on with that 70s curtain... Splendid cushions! I think I'll give the cod liver oil a miss - am sure it's Very good for you though!

I'm at the 45th parallel. We all seem to spend too much time indoors these days so I may as well live in the Arctic. I just go to Target and get a bottle of D vitamins, though!

We do the cod liver oil, too! Ours is strawberry flavored. I almost don't mind it. Almost ... ;)

Stephanie: Wow, strawberry cod liver oil! That's new to me. Sally: yes, the lemon really help with the taste, strange but true. Liza: they take it with pleasure, but they may well be in denial:)
