Getting Ready…



It’s the 1st Advent Sunday this weekend.
The town is getting prepared, and so am I. At least trying to.


It was snowing Monday through Thursday this week, and then the temperature dropped even more to around -8°C (17°F). Forecasts say it’s going to remain cold. This means really early winter for south-west Sweden. Most of the years I’ve lived in this town (25 in January) we have not had snow for Christmas. Last year snow came to stay around Mid December. This year the first snowfall was 22 October, and it’s been more or less continuously frosty/snowy since early November. It’s going to be a very long winter! I’m not a fan of long winters. But there’s really nothing I can do to escape. Even the indoors temperature is lower than it was last winter. I feel like I suddenly have to bundle up like the Michelin man even indoors.

GB, there are more town pictures in my Picture Book blog, but as I recall from your last season in NZ you had difficulties loading that blog from your mobile broadband. I'll try to include some town photos here as well.

Your window is georgous!!!! The star is a beautiful beacon. Wouldn't it be cool if we got all our blog friends to post their window decorations on the same day?

This is lovely. It brings back so many memories for me of a Swedish Christmas way back in 1975.
