Today’s the Day!
Lucia Family Christmas Party
Sunday, December 9th, 3-6pm

The Lucia tradition at the Bernt Balchen Lodge celebrates our Scandinavian heritage through music, food, and language. It is one of the most popular events at the lodge. Children learn and sing Norwegian and Swedish songs, accompanied by harp and piano. Families are treated to a talent show, the Lucia procession and elf dance, singing around the Christmas tree, and authentic Scandinavian rice pudding, open-faced sandwiches, and desserts. Santa Claus makes a special appearance at this event and hands out goodies to all attending children.

Adults: $12
Ages 5-18: $5
Ages 4 and younger: FREE

The university was still closed today, but I spent about 5 hours shelving at the library today along with my coworkers. (Yay teamwork!) Still lots to do, but we’re making progress. Parts of the library will be cordoned off, but it looks like we’ll be open tomorrow. #alaskaearthquake #anchorageearthquake #alaskaearthquake2018

It’s been a crazy couple of days. Luckily we didn’t have too much damage from the #anchorageearthquake yesterday. Just lots of broken glass. We were also fortunate that we didn’t lose power. Aftershocks lasted all day and night and kept everyone on edge. Except for my 20-something son who slept through everything. Now the place is shaking from high winds and hail. Snow expected tomorrow.

Finished! And christened with a little fresh Alaskan snow.

After a whole day of cooking and cleaning yesterday, this is how I will be spending my day off. #calmingthestormshawl #madtoshdk

When you wake up and remember that you bailed on doing the dishes the night before because you went into a food coma, but you remember you have pumpkin pie for breakfast.

Our little feast turned out pretty well. Too full to knit.

Sad to see @steamdotcoffee on Abbott is closing. Hope the new cafe is good!

I was very honored to be invited to the UAA Thanksgiving Celebration for International Students.

So colorful!
