The "season" is over us again.
When I was young I was used to go Christmas shopping in December. I went quietly around with my list and got all my errands done by Christmas Eve. The mood was full of expectation, festive.
I borrowed two photos to explain what I remember.
Be it Grey Thursday or Black Friday.
I watched some video clips, though, and whatever you think:
people turned into a greedy, screaming crowd, manipulated by advertisements, just grabbing as many items as they could is disgusting.
I have no desire to participate in this kind of crazy frenzy.
I never did and I never will.
That is that.
Still at home, still not sure whether we will go south or not.
Today it is mild. Just 5°C (41°F) and NO wind for once.
I thought I give you an idea about how it looked like when I glanced out through my windows this morning.
November 4th versus December 1st:
|garden view early November|
|and this morning...|
|view out of my kitchen window..|
|view this morning...|
...and out of the bedroom upstairs.
OOPS, is J.P. going berserk on the car, or???
I run downstairs and out of the back entrance......no, he was just chopping more firewood. Whew! LOL
Windy and cold at Liberty Point.
That was a cold day, -7°C (19°F) and strong wind so that the wind chill it felt like -11° C (12° F).
After the wood chopping he was ready for his favourite German winter dish:
Kale, caramelized potatoes and smoked pork chops.
That is it for today.
Stay warm were ever you are!
