More Winter

Every now and then, I take a picture, fully intending to use it on my blog, and then either forget about it or do not have the time or inclination to write a post where it fits. It has happened again in December and January, so I have decided to offer you a "mixed bag" of pictures I took during this month and last. 

After my last visit to O.K.'s before Christmas, I travelled back home on Monday morning instead of Sunday evening. The sun was doing its best to break through dark and heavy clouds, and it made for a spectacular skyscape, which I was watching from the train. I took these pictures on the 19th of December with my mobile - I'm afraid they are not very good, but that is to be expected when you're dashing along at more than 200 km per hour:



The 16th of this month was a Monday, and I was working from home, as I do most Mondays. Shortly before 10:00 am, I found the view from my kitchen window pretty enough for yet another picture:
 

Less than an hour later, the sun came out, and I noticed how a gap between the buildings along the street next to mine was letting the sun shine through, creating a path of light across the snowy garden:
 

A close-up of the "path":

Still back in December, one weekend when I arrived at O.K.'s, we took a quick stroll through the city centre. Walking past Hallhuber, I noticed a dress in the window that made me go back and have a closer look. Well, what shall I say - I ended up buying it, thanks to O.K.'s patience who went into the shop with me and waited while I was trying on this one and another one which I liked but didn't buy.

It is of rather heavy Jersey fabric, well suited for winter, and can be glammed up or toned down a little, depending on whether I wear it just for the office or am going somewhere in the evening as well.


It is time to pack my little red suitcase for another weekend away (at O.K.'s). I'll be going straight from work with no time to go home in between, so I better make sure I do not forget anything important!

    1. Thank you!
      When I spotted that path of light, I simply had to take a picture of it. I am sure it has appeared before, but I just happened to look at the right moment that day; a few minutes later, the sun had moved on an inch or two, and the path was gone.
