Can I brag one more time? Yesterday our Olympic athletes arrived home, 25 medals we have won, never have we been better at the Olympics. Everyone is so proud of them. When they arrived yesterday, they were honored immediately. Today they went to see the prime minister and the minister of sports and health. The gold medal winners all got one of the highest decorations in our country, so did 2 of the coaches. After that they visited our King and Queen. Most of them will be honored tomorrow in the town where they live and most of them will have a tournament already next Friday.
Back to the title: I have lost my voice for almost 2 weeks now. It’s weird because I don’t have a sore throath or do I have a cold, it’s just my voice. It’s also annoying because the more I talk, the worse it gets and when people hear my voice, they all ask what’s the matter with it. After 2 weeks I’m really tired of explaining what it is. I sure hope I get my normal voice back soon because it’s really annoying me by now.

No way I’m going to show my ugly running/walking feet. Instead this is one of Bella’s feet.

Shelley knitted this hat for me as a surprise gift. I was touched by it when I received it in November, especially about the time she put into it.

I made little pies filled with minced meat and parsnip. I had plans to eat a salad with it but we had more than enough and weren’t very hungry so we both ate 2 of these for dinner.
