Winter is Coming

… for Strawberry Singh’s Winter Season meme.

Winter is Coming

The last couple of weeks have been rather weird for me. It started with a cousin having her first baby, followed two days later with the death of my husband’s grandfather, followed a couple of days later by my sister-in-law’s wedding, followed by grandfather’s funeral.

Oh and followed by my birthday. I actually had a very intelligent “huh, what?” reaction when someone mentioned that, because I had completely forgotten about my own birthday.

But anyway, I finally found some time and energy to do some blogging. Time for another meme:

  1. What is the December/Winter season like where you live? I live in the Netherlands. This means there may be some snow, but usually we only get rain, wind or fog. This time of year is often referred to as “the dark days before Christmas”. This post describes it much better then I ever could.
  2. When you think of winter, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? – I know this probably sounds stupid, but what it makes me think of is: cold. Cold hands, cold feet, cold… you get the idea.
  3. Have you ever played any extreme winter sports? – *falls over laughing* Ahum, sorry… I don’t like sports. I especially don’t like them in the cold and I’m way to much of a coward to do anything extreme. So that would be a no.
  4. What do you like most about this season? – I like that the cold weather gives me the perfect excuse to fire up the wood burner, wrap myself in a blanket and snuggle up on the couch. Basically “warm and cozy”. Yes, those furry feline parts on my avatar do represent a certain part of my RL personality. 😉
  5. Do you celebrate Christmas, Hannukkah, Kwanzaa or another holiday during this time of year? – I’m not in any way religious, but we do celebrate Christmas. For me it’s not December if there isn’t a tree in the living room. And I mean a tree, not one of those green, plastic things they tell me looks just like a tree. I don’t care if I still find needles in the carpet next July, I want a real Christmas tree.

  1. I totally agree with you about the Tree thing… If it doesnt smell like tree and drop needles all over the place its not worth being called a tree!!! LOL!!! HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY BTW!!!!
