Advent in Germany
With some winter wonderland to boot. Though I don't think it will last long; snow seldom does around here.
View from my balcony a few minutes ago
Inside, it's nice and warm, the candles are burning and I got some hot tea and ginger cake. The writing still goes reasonably well though not at Nano speed. And of course, there are plotholes you can drive a truck through which I now have to fill in.
Christmas decoration from the Ore Mountains
The balcony is snowed in, too, but there is not enough to make a miniature snowman. Well, the winter isn't over yet and maybe we will get some more snow. With that backdrop I should write winter scenes, but no, right now I have a character fleeing through the Syrian desert; those damn Romans got around too much. ;-)
Snow on the winter plants on my balcony
I put up some decoration in the sleeping room as well. I know I blogged about these things before, but they are pretty every year and I got some new readers. Like Kasia, and Annika, another War of the Roses and Other Medieaval Fun-afficionado whom I met during Nano and who started a blog
in November. *waves hello*
Christmas decoration from Sweden
The flip side of this time is that the town is always crowded with people and grocery shopping is even less fun than the rest of the year.
