It has been freezing the last couple of days, and I have woken up in the middle of the night with chills and desperately fumbling around for a woollen blanket somewhere in the dark. However, despite the unforgivable, yet extremely welcoming cold, it is wonderful to sleep when winter has finally arrived with frosty weather and a little bit of snow. Of course, the said snow falls in the evening and melts again in the morning as a typical Danish weather phenomenon.
Yet, it is much easier to get in the mood for winter and truly appreciate it while it lasts, when it allows itself to show its true form. I love cold when it is meant to be, and the rainy humidly warm weather we have had earlier made me think of spring way too early, which is still far so away. January and February are usually the coldest months in Denmark, so with an upcoming birthday, I am looking forward to good chilly weather. Last year we went ice-skating on my in-laws’ lake. It was magical! We had a campfire going on the shore while the entire family was out on the ice.
