It started yesterday morning with a slight snow fall. The temperature was just right around 0°C, so I didn't think it was going to stay around very long. Even so, my tradition goes, with the first snow fall I always bake something usually fluffy white loaf bread. Since we already had a lot of bread in the house, I decided to make my favourite "German Chocolate Cake".
In the evening, after dinner,
and we were enjoying our dessert, I was surprised to see the snow still there. We
accumulated about two inches which was quite a lot considering it isn't even November
yet. (I remember a couple of years ago when my dad was visiting us, and the same
thing happened. It snowed in October!)
Needless to say, I went to bed and was
surprised to see that we had twice as much snow today as we did yesterday. I
am not ready for winter. My kids kept
yelling...."es ist Weihnachten." And I told
them that we hadn't even had Halloween yet! I still wanted to buy pumpkins
tomorrow and carve them. This seems a little strange for me. My husband is
outside right now putting on the winter tires on the cars. Better late than never?!
It did strike a new feeling in me though. I am looking forward to winter and new winter designs especially for Christmas. Seeing the white snow brightens my spirits, and is always more enjoyable than an overcast gray sky. Enjoy your week!
