The downside of winter (and some icicles!)

Winter 'looked good' for about three days. Then the pretty white snow transformed into yellowish slippery goo set out to make my life a living HELL. Trust me, I love winter as much as the next gal, but almost breaking one or several limbs everytime I have to go outside looses its charm after about a week...

So I was just about to give up on winter all together, when I found THIS in my back garden:

How cool is that?!?! :D


So even though I'd still like to see the yellow goo leave sooner rather than later...

... I spent the rest of the afternoon under our staircase taking pictures of the icicles anyways :)

The upside of winter

We rarely have a good pack of proper snow here in my little part of the world, so when we woke up this morning finding the already rare layer of snow had doubled in the course of the night, an expedition to The Wild was quickly planned!

It was still early so we had the pleasure of planting our footprints in the fresh, untouched snow.

The streets were empty...

... and so was the Wild!

There were only snowy pathways...

... and the footprints of deer :)

And despite public transportation is seriously disordered, traffic is a disaster and it's oh-so-cold...

... winter at least looks good :)

Oh dear...

I've been such a bad blogger! Not a single post since December 6th! Shame on me!!

So here's 5 things I've been up to these past few weeks that didn't involve me WORKING MY ASS OFF... ;)

1. I got snowed in (kind of)

2. I huddled in front of our heater with cups of tea and a book!

3. I admired my brand new iPhone 4...

4. ... and played Fruit Ninja till I went bananas :)

5. And last but not least: I changed this sorry excuse for a tree...

... into this:

Let the holidays begin!!! :D
