Yes, the snow came as anticipated.


It's beautiful, but also really treacherous. Underneath a thin layer of snow is a layer of slippery ice. I only waited for 7 minutes for the bus, and I witnessed two car accidents.

I hate that kind of weather. And I fear it. I year ago to the day, I fell down a staircase, and broke all the bones in my wrist. It still hurts, and I can't use my hand normally yet, probably never will be able to again. Sucks!



As some of you might know, I am getting married.. *cough*..

Anyway. There was a big brides fair today. I attended to get a lot of ideas. It was really nice. I wish I had a lot of money to spend on my wedding, but my father is not paying for the wedding, so I don't.

I am going to sew my own dress. And yes I know that "each stich will be a tear in my marriage..". But I believe that each penny I save will be a tear less in the marriage, so I am prepared to do the dress myself.

I know how it'll be. Green and golden, and with a lot of details on the corset.

This is the closest I come to have a picture of it:

My dress - almost.

Jinxing it

I shouldn't have posted that last post about winter with fall-weather, cause now it's like some Goddess of nature woke up and said: "Wait a minute! Are you suggesting that I am neglecting my duties as a weather-Goddess?", and all of the sudden the weather has changed. The cold weather from up north has moved down here, and winter has come. It didn't take more than a couple of hours from my last post to snow. Unfortunately the temperature wasn't below zero, so the snow melted almost as soon as it fell. But me and my husband still had the time to make a little snowman.

Mister snowman

Incidentally Mister Snowman is the first snowman I have ever made. He was almost as high as me, but he melted the next day. As you can see on the picture, he has a lot of mud on him. That is due to the lack of frost, so the ground was very muddy. So were we when we finally got inside.

As mentioned the weather was still rather warm when the snow fell, so it has still been very fall-like these last few days, but tomorrow they should be a very nasty freeze, so let's see how it'll all turn out. I am looking forward to it.

I should probably say a lot about global warming in this post, and rant about how this freaky weird weather is due to way to much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, but I have promised myself not to be too political in this blog. I will only say this: Go see "An inconvenient truth" or read the book. It's worth your time and thoughts.


An entire winter of fall

So winter didn't come at all. We had a couple of days of really cold weather, and the rest have just been rainy and grey. Real fall-weather. I love rain, so I don't complain. But most of my friends do. I am just happy that there have been no frost. Ofcourse, now the weather forecast promises winter. That sucks. I really hope it shalln't last. I am getting kind of used to seeing bugs now, and would like, out of curiousity, to see what effects a mild "winter" will have on the eco-system.
