The holliday is soon over…and the drive home was complicated. Snow, wind, ice…
January is here. Winter is here. Holliday is over. I’m back and my car is in one piece. I think I need to watch a film tonight, with springflowers and warm weather. Like “Enchanted April”
Snowflakes are at this very minute dancing through the air, and my springtime-feeling from yesterday, are replaced by yet another day of winter.
Well, it was fairly optimistic to hope for springtime weather in February, and I’ve decided to be grateful for the day we had yesterday, and try not to be too annoyed by the fact that I’ll soon be shuffling snow to get out my car…
I think these two talk about the snow as well:
Well, yesterday I wrote in the sand… Today I’ll write in snow!
In my hometown it’s kind of a cool thing to get to school or your job by boat in the morning. It’s very timesaving to take a boat across the sea, for many this is a trip that they can do in five minutes. The alternative is to go by bus or car, of course, and that’s both more time-consuming and for many viewed as a very boring alternative.
Still, I think I would have left the boat at home today…I wonder whether these two boat-owners secretly agrees?
I mean, even Mr. Seagull seems to be cold today.
And I had an instant urge to dress these two darlings!
This winter I’ve been so happy we had a green winter. For the first time in years, we were not buried in snow, and I have not been using half of my spare time to shuffle snow and the other half on getting my back to function again.
This winter has been great. I have not had any accidents with my car, and I’ve found my car every day. I must admit, I have heard some of my friends wishing for snow, talking about the great pleasure they find in skiing and how decorative the snow is… And I’ve quickly removed them from my contact-lists!
Well, this last week, someone has shown me that my former-friends have had better contacts with the weather-makers, because their wishes have been granted. And not only have we now snow, all the snow that were supposed to come bit by bit over the winter season, have now arrived. And continues to arrive, as we speak…
I want to scream and I can’t understand why people can’t learn: Careful What You Wish For!
Because when you wish for snow, you wish for days like these:
This is what we get:
And it’s a lot of hard work to find your car:
And I admit, snow can be decorative, especially in gardens:
Well, this is my garden today:
Yoy see the pawtracks from my cats, maybe they like to play in the snow?
Well, neither of them like this white stuff, anyway. You can see he screams “Let me in!”
So, this is todays message: Be Careful What You Wish For! Christmas is far far away even if it seems like we live in a Christmas Card right now.
This is an illusion:
I love the blue hour! The blue hour is as most of you know the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light, and I just love it.
Today we wake up to this seasons first snow. It’s cold and the light was spectacular.
And it’s good to be inside 😉
And to wait for the trees to dress themselves as winter brides. This last photo was taken last winter, in Sweden.
