A Festive Spirit

Finally it seems to be hitting me, some kind of festive spirit.
 In between my December projects and deadlines,
 a couple of days off to celebrate Independence Day. 
Tonight my daughter and I went to see the Snow Queen at the National Ballet 
and tomorrow night our home will be filled with a bunch of friends and their kids. 
The mad freeze seems to have eased off at least momentarily,
 and we're left with white, quiet streets 
and fluffy snow falling from a dark sky. 

Vihdoinkin jonkinlainen juhlatuuli on tainnut minut saavuttaa. 
Joulukuun hommien ja dedisten lomassa 
pari päivää vapaata itsenäisyyspäivän kunniaksi. 
Tänään vein tyttäreni katsomaan Kansallisbaletin Lumikuningatarta, 
kotiin tyttö pulkan kyydissä lauhtuneessa joulukuun illassa 
lumihiutaleiden tippuilessa hiljalleen. 
Jotenkin ihana tunne, kun yhtäkkiä työ 
ja paukkupakkasetkin tauonneet hetkeksi. 
Huomisiltana taas luvassa talon täydeltä väkeä, 
pukuraati täällä perinteisesti pystyssä :) 
Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää teille jokaiselle!
