Even though winter has a grip in nature at the moment, nature will not be brought down. Every little ray of sun is
immediately doing its job. The frost has not gone deep underground yet, giving the bulb flowers enough energy to start their yearly cycle.
Even the wild oregano and the parsley have survived. The oregano will definately not die, I replanted them from the moors last summer, where they come back year after year. The parsley is probably so protected from wind and cold it can grow this year also, if I´m lucky.
The Blood Moon
Yesterday it was super blood wolf full moon eclipse. The sight started out beautifully with a partial cloudy sky but with a nice view to the full moon. I went to bed, convinced it would be a perfect view between 5 and 6 am this morning. Tough luck! It was pouring down when I got up, so the decision to crawl back into bed was pretty easy.
And Off He Went
I sent my husband off to Austria for a small skiing trip yesterday. He hasn´t been skiing for the last three years (due to his job), so I decided it was time again.
Certainly I´m not such a good wife, that I did this without any ulterior motives! Going from almost never seing him, to having him at home full time has been pretty stressful to me. As some of you know, I lost my job December 2017 and he lost his September 2018. I just needed some space and time to do my own stuff (applying for jobs) without having someone around all day.
He agreed and went off with his brother early yesterday morning. They are back late Thursday, so it gives me a few days on my own. At least during the day, the boys are off course home, attending school.
Sunday I made two loafs of white bread. Yesterday the boys wanted to make sausage rolls for their lunch boxes. I bought some mini chicken sausages and the boys did the rest. Making dough and the rolls, I only had to supervise. Great jobs boys! Now we have more than 100 mini sausage rolls in the freezer, ready to put into the lunch boxes.
