I have been busy working away these last few weeks since returning from the North. I did get a lot done, and am wrapping up this term and look forward to the break (I am working on my Master's too). I am also putting together a new Arts project for 2017, and it's going to be a big one, so there needs to be a good deal of research and coordination and thought and planning...but I'll talk more about that after New Year.
The winter weather is always enjoyable to me. I know other people hate it, but I love the peace and quiet and purity of winter and snow. There is something heavenly and ethereal about a fresh snowfall, and I will always love the bright, blinding paleness of the winter landscape.
Of course, I do aim to keep warm, but going outside and getting rosy cheeked and cold always makes lolling on the couch watching Christmas classics all the more delicious, with less guilt!
