Solstice

Winding down slowly towards Christmas (I refuse to call it "Festivus" or whatever the hell else is fashionable today). I was reading over my blog posts from last year at this time, when I was in Canada visiting my family and relatives, and feeling somewhat blue. Winter in Germany is just not real winter, it's too warm and too wet. There is a big difference in comfort between walking in the rain at +2° and walking in snow at -2°, I definitely prefer the latter but what can one do? (Were you infer from this that it rained heavily today, you'd be right.)

Work is mostly finished, I have a few phone calls still to make and two CDs to burn for new customers, customized versions of the database including their letterhead and logos etc.

I will be spending two days in the Black Forest with G's family, which has become something of a tradition in the years when I'm not in Canada; then of course New Year's Eve with Chirpy. In the week between the two, I shall clean up the apartment and my life, putting things in order for 2006 (which incidentally is going to be a much better year than 2005 was).

In case I don't write again before then: merry Christmas, happy Chanukah and a jolly Kwanzaa to you and yours, dear readers. Be kind to each other, and above all to yourselves.

Happy holidays to you!

You are so right about the difference between the rain and snow. I don't mind rain if it is warm rain but the cold wet stuff is horrible. Snow can be less annoying.

Sounds like you're going to be quite busy. I am excited to hear you're spending New Year's Eve with Chirpy. Yay!

2006 better be a better year. It should be.

Oh damn, I forgot the Yuleists :-( Hope they aren't too offended.

Blue. I determined that my life - or rather my blog - is a bit boring after reading some of the entries of the last year. Who cares what I think about anything? Merry post-Christmas.
