Die Knuipe

The magic time of the year is here!

Posted by Mervi on December 20, 2019 at 4:05 PM



Dear friends! I want to thank you for being here during the year 2019. Despite the technical problems we've been able to keep our Knuipe going. Let's hope the year 2020 will be good for us all - in every possible way!

Annemarie - How wonderful of you and your team to remember Vesa's birthday. Of course, he's happy to be here today! :D - I'm looking forward to the brunch on the 25th! What a splendid idea! - I had a good laugh at Master Ludwig's joke. What a funny rascal he is! :D - Uncle Sergej recommended the 'Schaschlik-Spiesse mit Tomaten-Paprika-Sauce' so it's my choice today. Thank you so much for the charming 4th Advent bulletine!

Horrido!/Morgen-Bulletin:

Wie immer gibt es frischen Herkules-Kaffee, Samovar-Tee und leckere Croissants.
Auch heute hatte wieder Yeo perfekte Vorarbeit geleistet - bei uns im Fruehstuecksraum. Das erleicherte natuerlich den Jungs und mir die weitere Breakfast-Team-Arbeit. Danke vielmals!

Nach der intensiven QC halfen meine Kollegen mir mit dem Food-Safe-Befuellen. Sie bereiteten liebevoll mit mir das Personal-Fuehstueck vor, was wir dann anschliessend sehr genossen. Meine Kollegen platzierten auch an einem bestimmten Platz ein sehr dekoratives Geburtstags-Gedeck mit einer Kerze - fuer Vesa, der im Laufe des Tages ganz bestimmt in die Knuipe kommen wird. - Hinter der Theke sah ich auch reichlich feinsten Champagner! Es fehlt also an nichts!

Wir plauderten noch eine ganze Weile im Kaminzimmer. Ich fragte, ob sie denn auch am 25.12. mit mir hier Dienst machen wuerden. Spontan bekam ich ein gemeinsames JA. So planten wir einen ueppigen Weihnachtsbrunch in unserer so huebsch weihnachtlich geschmueckten Knuipe fuer den 1. Weihnachtsfeiertag. Klaro, alle sind eingeladen.

Bevor wir heute morgen unseren Heimweg antraten, spendierte ich meinen Kollegen noch einen heissen Drink nach Wahl vor dem heimeligen Kamin. Raspi und Wolodja ruehrten in ihre XXXL-Becher Kinderpunsch ein paar Essloeffel Honig ein. Sie lieben Honig - nun welcher Baer nicht? - Da fragte Ludwig, ob sie wuessten, warum Bienen summen. Sie ueberlegten angestrengt, kamen aber zu keiner Erklaerung. Unser Elefantenjunge Ludwig meinte schelmisch: "Weil sie ihren Text vergessen haben!"

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - today is a very special day for us i Malmö!

HAPPY 70TH BIRTHDAY, DEAR VESA! Mimmi and Nalle have made a little 'birthday special' for you in KWM. :-)

Yeo - Thank you for the breakfast! Today we had champagne, too! :D

Dumba - Thank you for the email to Vesa! It was so kind and touching of you to take time for sending that despite of your poor health for the time being. We wish you further a speedy recovery!

Today I won't be here so much so I just wish everybody a very pleasant 4th Advent Sunday!

It is very impressive: 146 Cookies
Mervi
Wasja was interested but he only watched us dekorating. Sydney sat under the tree. Muffin slept upstairs, Minka was outside.

Knuti-Judi - I can almost smell the cookies! :D

Ludmila - Did your cats assist you when you were decorating the tree? :D

Dave - Wow! 146 cookies! Well, I guess it's OK if some them 'vanished'. :D Enjoy your days off and have a good time with your friends! Hopefully the cocktails are not too strong .... :D

Good Afternoon.

Today it is sunny and the temperatures are supposed to rise to 4C for the next few days. We are in danger of losing the snow that has blanketed our neighbourhood this week. The last couple of days were around the -10C range.

This morning my mom, brother Rob and nephew Ryan decorated the Christmas cookies that my mom and I baked on Monday and Tuesday. There were 146 cookies but some have disappeared. :)

Today and tomorrow I'll finish off the gift and food shopping. I work Monday and then I'm off until Jan.2. I will be busy with some jobs for friends and also switching over to my new computer.

Now the laundry is running and then I'll go for a walk to pick up a steak for dinner. Then meet with friends for cocktails.

Have a good evening.

Hello Friends!
Mervi
Thank you for the new thread.
We decorated a tree today and heard an old Christmas story with the animals in the forest.
We watched many Christmas movies in the last time.
Knuti-judi
I am happy that you got a card.
Leti
I wish you a Merry Christmas too.
Ralph
I hope you had a nice time with the friends.

Die Situation in Australien ist schrecklich.

Chris - The fires in Australia are really awful. My heart is bleading when I think of all the animals - and, naturally, also of all the people loosing their homes.

Leti - I wish you a good time with your brother! Have a merry Christmas!

Ralph - Ralph Enjoy your trip to Woodstock. Is BN travelling with you?

VERY SAD :(

Mir tun die Tiere so leid: es sind ja nicht nur die
Koalas, sondern auch kleine Beuteltiere am
Boden, Reptilien und Haustiere, die dort
verbrennen - es ist eine Katastrophe. :(
Die Hauser kann man wieder aufbauen.

LETI - das Gleiche wuensche ich dir auch. :)

Dear friends, I wish you, your families and your pets a very happy 4th Advent, a very Merry Christmas and a very happy new year.
I will not be much online during the holidays because my brother is going to visit us.
I will be back in January.
Lots of love to all of you.

GUTEN ABEND

Gestern Abend war ja hier Ebbe, ;)
seid ihr alle frueh ins Bett gegangen?

Heute schien wieder von morgens bis
abends die Sonne -Traumwetter ! :)
Ich war vier Stunden auf dem Rad.

MERVI - ich werde mich Weihnachten
mit meiner Schwester treffen, aber die
ist auch Weihnachtsmuffel... ;)

Danke fuer das neue Thread ! Hoffen
wir, dass neue Jahr bringt viel Gutes.

In Australien sieht es ja schlimm aus.
Da sind schon tausende von Koalas
verbrannt. Zwischen Sidney und
Brisbane wueten hunderte Feuer.
In Sydney kannst Du kaum
noch atmen - furchtbar.
Und der Sommer
faengt gerade
erst an... :(

Gret to join the new thread. Am on a little bus from Witney to Woodstock. Then home before meeting some old schoolfriends for a Lebanese meal.
Will try to look in again.
But all the best to everyone from me and BN.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - I guess everybody's busy baking, doing some shopping, decorating the Christmas tree etc ..... let's wish everybody a good waiting for Santa! :D

Yeo - Congratulations for being number one on this thread! Uncle Sergej has made a big bowl of Eierlilör for you. Please, be careful - it's very strong!! :D

Britta-Gudrun - Thank you for the good wishes! I really hope we will be spared from all the technical problems next year!

During the Christmas time we can see many old movies on TV so I thought we can also have some Christmas nostalgie in KWM. That's why I published FIETE'S SEASON'S GREETINGS from 2015 again. The story contains an important message to all of us.

I wish everybody a cosy 4th Advent!
