I believe our two minutes of genuine Winter have finally arrived...
we had frost on the lawn this week..
and the dreaded bitter Westerly Winds are a'blowin today.. brrrr
I went to church in boots, leather gloves, long scarf, heavy wool jacket -
and struggled to sing in the choir: I think my throat was tight with cold..
The Red Cardinal palms are doing battle with the winds..
Mr C and I had hot chocolate (with mini marshmallows) for lunch -
but that didn't fix us..
Despite the fact that we both wish to lose a pound or two in the next 49 days, it seemed nothing would do but:
Mr C said cake was Mandatory.
He is a Management Consultant and must be obeyed .... hmmm
and of course, Padua:
Anyone like to recommend a hotel in Paris, or Padua?
I'll check out all suggestions...
Mr C is chopping logs as we speak..
Could be a nice fire tonight...
Have a lovely week
