Colder January times 寒い一月

This winter has so far been the warmest in a long long time. We had basically no snow at all – until now! Finally this week it got cold and some snow started falling. Even if it’s chilly, it’s so nice to have that white snow covering stuff since it makes everything brighter.
今年の冬は普通より熱かった。今までほとんど雪がなかった。やっと今週普通の冬のように寒くなった。寒いのに、世界が白い雪に覆われるとすべてが明るくなるから良いことだね:)

Yes, it’s been a grey and dull December. Luckily Christmas and New Years was around to cheer things up. I spend New Years with siblings and friends at my friends parents place. Their Christmas tree was the weirdest one I’ve ever seen! But the atmosphere in the house is really nice, just look at all these cute jars they have in the pantry =)
この十二月は本当に暗くて意気消沈させる時期だったんだ。幸いにクリスマスとお正月のおかげで元気になった。お正月は兄弟たちと友達と友達の家で過ごした。その家のクリスマス木がとても変だった!でも、家の雰囲気がとても心地がいい。ほら、あの食料のジャーが素敵じゃない?

This part of winter, right after the holidays, feels a bit special. People start buying tulips like crazy and looking forward to spring – although it’s months away. All the red decorations are swapped for pastels like pink. My mum got these really nice roses for her birthday. I think this is a typical January window somehow. A leftover Christmas flower in white, salmon pink roses and snow outside.
お正月とクリスマスが終わったすぐの今の冬の雰囲気が少し特別だと思う。みんながチューリップを買ったり、春を楽しみにしている。何か月先なのに。クリスマスからの赤いデコレーションが白いや桃いるなどのパステルを交換された。母親は誕生日にこの桃色バラをもっらた。何か、これは一月っぽい窓だと思う。クリスマスから残った白い花プラス桃色バラと外の雪。

Well well, I just hope it’s going to stay cold for a while now. I’m hoping to maybe do some cross country skiing the next time I get to my parents place. That would be really nice. The cats don’t really like the cold though. They stay indoors or patiently wait outside the front door if they accidentally go out, until someone lets them in again.
まあ、今から寒さが残って欲しいけど。今度実家に帰ったらスキーが出来たらいいな。ただ、猫は寒さがあまり好きじゃない。家にいるか思わず外に出たら入らせるまで外のドアで待つ。
