It was snowing again when I took the photo this morning, and we also had -4° C in the early morning. I decided it was one of those Sundays where I stay at home and hibernate for the day. Winter has arrived and it looks like it will be a white Christmas.
Yesterday my No. 2 son and his wife visited and naturally No. 1 grandson (at least my No. 1, Mr. Swiss already has two grandchildren and a great granddaughter in the bargain). Of course it was great holding a baby in my arms again. It is the most beautiful baby in the world, but they all are I suppose if you are the grandmother. He has quite a voice and knows no limits with the decibels. Of course when he saw me he calmed down and even smiled.
The only excitement at the moment is watching the birds feeding outside in the birdhouse. Even the book I am reading is not so exciting. An icelandic police story, which is OK, but not exactly breathtaking. Life is more exciting in our village, although I have not see very much of our village lately. My excitement consists of car journeys to and fro to the supermarket and pushing the trolley.
Of course I have fun hoovering and cooking. I already have todays luch simmering on the stove.
It is a piece of boiled beef with a few bones which will cook slowly for the next three hours. I will add some carrots, celery and leek to it and serve it with potato, and there you have my lunch. You see what an exciting day it will be.
Sundays are always scarce on information, so that’s that. I will now count the snowflakes falling and listen to the meat simmering on the stove.
Hope you have a day packed with excitement and events, not like mine. Yesterday afternoon we actually saw the sun.
