... Missing Winter

I never thought I would actually say this... But, I miss Eastern Europe's proper cold and snowy winters... 'Proper' as winters from my childhood - with lots of crisp snow, -20 and lots of sun and glitter all around. It almost seems these days that those winters were a fairy tale made up by my imagination. I guess I miss winter so much because this wasn't a particular snowy Christmas in most parts of Europe - apart of course from the countries where it usually snows (like Bulgaria ;)).. and our last winter was very short too and mostly tropical - as we spent most of it in India. And here in London one does not even feel cold and doesn't need any proper winter clothes - I could literally survive walking in my ballerinas and a raincoat all winter long. And... you might not believe it, but the trees are in bloom here now - I can see one right in front of my window...

So I am giving up and posting this couple of snowy pictures from 2 years back from Belarus where I very much wish I could be right now enjoying some sun and snow. Hope you would enjoy them too :). Have a good winter!

I miss a good, proper winter too, Olga.
Pushing 4 years in Europe, this has got to be the warmest winter... Nothing but rain, rain, rain, and unexpected spots of sunshine.

Que a fé e a esperança anda de mãos dadas, bem juntinho de você.
Esta esperança é nossa esperança. É com esta fé em Deus que
estou para 2012.
É com esta fé que nós seremos capazes de transformar esse mundo se cada um de nos
fizermos nossa parte.
E a esperança não ilude, porque o amor de
Deus foi derramado sobre todos nos.
Esta luta do filho de Deus não anda de mãos dadas com renúncias e tristezas,
e sim de esperança num amanhã mais feliz.
Um feliz final de semana.
O primeiro de 2012.
Muita paz muito amor para você.
Beijos no coração.
Evanir..
