We've got plenty of snow and now the temperature is plummeting again.
Christmas was slow and peaceful — just as we want it. Not very different from any other winter day. I know that a lot of people would find our Christmases very dull. Besides the Christmas tree we don't have any decorations — unless you count all the Christmas cards that fill the walls in the staircase. And no abundance of food — I simply can't see the point of overeating, just because it is Christmas.
Cities are nice to visit, but I'm so happy that I live in the countryside. This is the view that meets me when I step out of our grocery store.
