I had forgotten how it is to fall asleep gazing stars. The last nights I watched them through my window under blankets. I remember last thoughts before falling asleep thinking about how flat the sky looks when it is very dark.
It turned cold, today -24°C. That made me to search for the socks my grandmother knitted me years ago. She had today her 60th anniversary though grandfather passed away some years ago. Her wedding day started in the back of a truck which happened to be on the way to the village where my grandfather was waiting. Her wedding dress was "of a natural white cloth what you just possibly found during that time, two parts" and sewn by a neighbor. From church they drove with an American car to the dancing place where they got more than 200 guests (which I counted from their guest book). She finally found the soya ice cream in her freezer, which she had bought for me already last time but lost under the huge amounts of berries. Ate it with a pleasure to celebrate her day with cloudberries and raspberry jam.
(That is how high Mr. Sun rises these days. Not even over the treetops. After that, it is just all the way down. Good night Mr. Sun, say greetings to the other side of the Earth!)
Those photos really do capture the beauty of snow. And you're right about the sun, in these Northern parts, it sure doesn't get high!ReplyDelete
Holy moly, that is COLD!!!ReplyDelete

Thank you CerealJoe. I wonder how much longer people slept the old days because of the few daylight.ReplyDelete
But the socks happily keep me warm. I am happy you read my words!
Nice to have you stopping by! Thank you.
Thank you Anne.
Have you all a pleasant weekend!
Huippuhienot säärystimet! Tulee Lappi mieleen ja Norja. Siis Norjan Lappi.ReplyDelete
Lopetan sössötyksen, hyvää joulua!
Kiitos Liivia! Ne on vielä sukkaset, mutta kärjet kyllä puran ja teen niistä totta tosiaan säärystimet, tulee sitten enempi pidettyä. Kiitos piipahtamisesta. Hauskaa talvenaikaa sinnekin!ReplyDelete
Hi Anna Emilia.ReplyDelete
We had -14°c here Saturday night. And I must say we aren't used to it. Freezing mideuropeans:)
Your set of photos is fantastic. And the story of your granny is heartwarming.
I bet that felt very cold (: But it also comes as a surprise to this country every single year.
Thank you very much. Have many cups of good tea for the beginning of the new week!
that is cold -- but very beautiful!ReplyDelete
Hello dear Marie,ReplyDelete
It is not that cold anymore, but we got a lot more snow and more coming all the time.
Enjoy the days!
This seems absolutely idyllic. So cold and icy outside, but you look nice and cozy in those beautiful socks!ReplyDelete
Thank you! To tell you a little secret, it is all about wearing layers to keep the cold away, but still every time it is as lovely to get inside and have a burning tea cup in your hands! But it is all worth it.ReplyDelete
