it has been the coldest january in southern Germany since 1987,
so for 30 years.
but what i did not suppose: i enjoyed it.
because it brought snow that turned not into mud after two days,
the harshness provided a good grip without becoming slippery.
many People were cross-country skiing (not me;)),
but it was good for Walking, too.
super fresh air.
i forgot the dreary days (the glass is half full, you know;)) -
we had quite some sunshine in between.
but cold. always freezing grades.
the nights often with double-Digit minus Celsius grades.
(edit: via Ulrike i came to tabea´s blog with the challenge to Show a view from the same Point throughout the year - twelve photos, one each month. as i come along here quite often on my Walking route, i choose this one to be my first photo...)
time for nice warm Drinks when coming back home...
the last Weekend the sun invited for a last White walk,
as now the temperatures are rising and rain will destroy the White beauty.
steadily my heap of number patches is growing...
and combined with "blank" patches i started sewing some of them together -
the beginning of a new blanket.
all hand-sewn, of course.
