Let it snow, let it snow, let trains ride

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up,
snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather,
only different kinds of good weather.

The song says "Since we've got no place to go, let it snow (x3) "
When you do have to go anywhere, it's a bit more annoying.
But of course, not the snow. Just the stupid people saying trains and cars and buses can't ride.

Snow is not only fun, but also very beautiful.
And.. It makes great statues, if you put enough effort in it.
Judith (Cous) and I did that, and are very proud of our Davina Magdelijns ( Michelangelo's David's female version)

I like the freezing. And the cold.
I always knew I was a winter-type, but this just proves it.
Oh, and everyone keeps asking me whether I fell and/or slipped already.
I keep disappointing them, because no, I did not yet slip,
the only time I was lying in the snow was when I made an angel. So hah.

And Then There Was Light ~Or not

I discovered I do not really dislike the sun when it's its watery version of the summer.
When little clouds form at your mouth when you breathe, but there's no wind.
It makes everything twinkle, but it's not that bright, rather gloomy with all the grey sweet fluffy clouds?
No wind, yet it's ice cold. That's my favourite weather. With or without the watery sun.

Sinterklaas is already gone. And Santa is about to come. Reindeers and all.
Autumn's actually moved to Winter. Leafless trees. Rain. Clouds. Mist.
I haven't had a REAL winter in a least 7 years, when we were here for quite a different reason.
So it better be good. I really hope it snows.
They have been saying that the weather has been mild up till now. D<
I heard it'll be freezing this week. So maybeh. I'm not quick thinking the weather's cold. Like, awfully so. Only time in the last ten years I've had my teeth chattering was in August 2007. Of course, that was on the Grossglockner, which is the highest mountain in Europe, about 2,5 kms above sealevel. August or not, it was chilly up there.

I've noticed I don't do things automatically. When it's quiet, I don't turn on the TV or music, just to drown it out. When it gets dark outside, I let it get dark inside, and don't turn on any lights. I don't know if I do that because I'm comfortable without light and sound, or whether I'm not just pure lazy? Maybe both, maybe neither.
Not getting food when hungry, or turning on the heater when it's cold.. I really need to teach myself to do that without actively telling myself to.

PS: Is it just me or does it really say 98 posts when there are a 100?
