Though Marry did venture onto the balcony briefly today, the pouring rain had her begging to come back in before too long. And the forecast for next week calls for snow… uhoh.
I’m happy to report that our yard is full of snowdrops and not even a hint of snow.
Sure, we can still get snow at the end of February. But we can also have flowers poking up in the garden, and that one morning when the forest has turned from slightly brown to light green seemingly overnight.
How many Krapfen is an acceptable amount to eat during the tastiest season of the year? I’ll let you know if I reach it…
Just in case anyone forgot, last year on Valentine’s Day a flower-seller set up shop right in the middle of the main train station in Nürnberg. I mean… who’s got time to run down the stairs to one of the other florists in the station when the mood for romance strikes?
This winter walk a few years ago was much different to today’s white-frosted one. Hope everyone’s got their shovels handy…
This picture is making me regret my decision to not go out for a walk today. The snow has melted, it was over zero degrees, and the sun actually shone for a bit. But I just couldn’t drag myself out of the house… gotta work on that motivation.
I could have taken this picture today, as I was in the exact same place, doing the exact same thing. The only difference would be that the tree that stood in this corner of the barn today was a short-needled pine, and only had lights on it… no stars. And we found our own tree much faster today!
Seems like it was just yesterday when my sister arrived from her long tenure in South Korea. One of our first orders of business was to take her to the Nürnberg Christkindlesmarkt where we all spent long enough gazing longingly at these sausages and sniffing their sweet smoke to not care that much about spoiling our dinners.
I spent most of the weekend sick in bed so no Christmas markets for me. However, I am confident that the opening of the Nürnberg Christkindlesmarkt was as full of bustle as ever. It’s not a total loss though, we have three more weeks and at some point, it should stop raining… right?
