December 4th - time to plant the Saint Barbe wheat. Three little saucers, as tradition wants it.
All the November photos have been posted on the 365 Day Project tumblr! You can see them in chronological order here.
For all the Linda fans! Bunses was not impressed by my offerings of colourful leaves. I guess they weren’t dry enough (properly dried leaves are one of her favourite foods, I guess it’s all about the crunchiness).365 days in 2013
First batch of Brussels sprouts to be roasted.
I honestly thought that it was tradition everywhere to sprout a bit of wheat on the 4th of December (St Barbe) but apparently it’s only a thing in Provence (wiki article).
In any case, I will be sprouting the family’s wheat in three little saucers as is tradition and hopefully we’ll be able to plant it outside mid-January.

I had SpongeBob last year and now I have none :(
There is still time I bet to get one tomorrow! Never give up on the good stuff known as tiny little chocolates! (The choice in themes of calendars might be limited though… apparently at the local shop my mum could only find this Cinderella one and a Cars one, not exactly my themes of choice, but oh well, it’s the thought that counts!)

Aww, I was just thinking I should get myself an advent calendar too. :D
You should! Why should kids have all the fun?
I’ll have to find an adult to help ne with the cutting out part on the back. Not sure where I can find safety scissors either.
After Astérix last year, this year I have Cinderella! Coolest 28 year old in town or what? Thanks, mum, for being my enabler in all things serious and very adult.
Going down these rocky trails with 20km in the legs on an empty stomach can be a bit tricky though.
Sea, sun, nice rock formations. Such hardship hanging out in these kinds of places.
Did I already tell you about the horrible hardships of walking/running places where you can see the sea?
Was it cold last night? Well, it’s not every day we see frost like that still around at 9am.
Oh, and here is the total profile for the day’s run/walk. That little top hill at 8.5km sure looks nice! Won’t lie, I walked a bit on the rockier parts of its ascent. And I actually gave up running in the final maybe 7 or 8km… I must have chosen the rockiest trails ever or my legs were just tired, it was way too tricky, especially downhill!
Edit: I calculated that for the top hill, the bottom is at 204m at kilometre 6.98 and the top is at 333m at kilometre 8.38. That gives an average slope of 9.2% over that 1.4km! Knowing that there are mostly uphill 6km beforehand, no wonder that bit tends to hurt quite a bit.
Back home after walking on some backwater trails. 1122m total ascent.
