  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 17

    I can't believe how fast the month is going! We're already at day 17! We've moved onto our third and last puzzle (unless we want to go buy a new one) and last night we finished the third season of Downton Abbey, a great show, even it's ...

  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 16

    The whole family is here! We celebrated yesterday morning by going out to a famous hummus/falafel place for breakfast. It's one of my favorite places to eat in Amman. In the afternoon we decorated Christmas cookies, and then went to the Hobbit later ...

  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 13

    Yesterday many cookies were baked and this morning my father-in-law, whom I shall now refer to as Doug (because that's his name) made lefse. His family has strong Swedish roots, which always come out most strongly during the holidays. I have just had ...

  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 11

    Today is shaping up to be a rainy, rainy day. It's been about half a year since we last had rain, so it's a nice change, but it makes the house very cold. I'm bundled up with my tea and space heater, but worried because I was really cold in ...

  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 10

    Some more Christmas traditions have come out of the closet. Yesterday we had our first advent breakfast; we "missed" the first Sunday since we were alone, but my mother-in-law makes delicious cardamon rolls, which we enjoyed yesterday for breakf ...

  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 9

    A very exciting thing happened. A few weeks ago I was interviewed for a local magazine as "Blogger of the Month," which was perhaps a bit misleading since I wasn't even blogging at the time, but it still made me feel like a superstar! You c ...

  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 7

    Today we are celebrating Jordan's birthday. I, for one, am very happy he was born 28 years ago. Yes, he did end up going to that University. It's good to know that even if your baby spends his time eating a hammer, he can still turn out well. Kn ...

  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 6

    I should perhaps make it a little more clear that Jordan and I, confusingly, live in the country of Jordan. Jordan's father is an anthropologist and his family has been living in North Africa and the Middle East for 30 years. Jordan and I needed some ...

  • 30 Days of Christmas: Day 2

    Yesterday Jordan and I were working furiously when we got a phone call from a friend reminding us that we had bought tickets to a comedy show! So off we went. It was the first comedy show I had ever been to and it was mostly in Arabic, which I don't ...
