My "other" sister is visiting...

It has been a while since Ljilja, (my housemate)'s sister, Sladjana, came to visit us in Banja Luka (last time was two years ago) and so when our friend's husband was coming back from Trebinje, we told her to pack her bags and come with him the next day! It all came about so quickly that she didn't have time to change her mind (which is what usually happens...) "Our" mom, Ankica, still managed to make about 5 meals in the morning before she left, which Sladja brought with her :) [I am officially the third daughter in this family!]

It has been great having her to stay, not just because of the food she brought (which was great!), nor because while we have been working, she has been systematically cleaning our whole house (did I mention that we love Sladja?), but just because she is fun to have around :)

She has been here for over a week already and we aren't ready to let her go yet... We finally managed to get a picture this afternoon in downtown Banja Luka (in front of the Earthquake memorial). And yes, that is the sun setting at 3.45pm - December is NOT my favourite time of year, and that is why we love having her here to brighten up our dark evenings!!
Talking about brightening up dark evenings. On Friday I decided it was time that the Christmas tree went up...
And it is also helping to brighten up our lives, as we spend this season remembering that "The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world." (John 1:9)

We also decided to put a tree finally! It makes a big difference!! Sladjana sounds amazing. I look forward to meeting her.
