4 days before the New Year

Monday (after Christmas), evening, downtown in a small city, few cars, even fewer people.

Daniel and I went for a walk. Each time he chose the side of the sidewalk close to the roadway.  It was not necessary but really nice of him.

Daniel noticed that there were fewer lights in the shop windows this year. Less than when? Probably before the pandemic.

And I suddenly wondered which Christmas Dan likes more snowy or snowless. It turned out that he likes white Christmas, but it doesn’t happen often. For me personally, New Year and Christmas without snow are nonsense at all… although I’m not surprised anymore. One time, before Christmas dinner, we went for a walk wearing just light jackets, it was so warm. 

There was no snow tonight, but it was still winter cold. While I took 5 pictures, my fingers froze. And they didn’t warm up until I got home, even with gloves on.

Our house looked like a small castle with the night lights on and with plastic candles on the windows. There was a delicious smell of soup and pancakes inside.

Crackle was waiting for us sleeping, and not even on the couch. He was not too lazy to get up to greet us, then – to the fireplace and back to bed.

I have to go to work tomorrow. Just me.

There are 4 days left until the New Year.
