Today I got some good news from home. A winter hit my hometown (Perm). Lucky people actually have passed those rainy and sunny autumn days, and today they saw a first snow falling on their heads. It sounds kind of bizarre to me coz we don't get to see much snow here in Cyprus especially in October.:))) Besides, I still consider our weather kind of summery. The temperature hasn't been going any lower than 20 degrees Celsius.
So, there my imagination started running wild. I realized how much I was looking forward to winter with it's cold days outside of the house and nice warm feeling in front of the fire place inside. Just imagine rushing to work/uni/home and feel a cold air against your skin and then getting inside the building/house and feeling your skin warming up slowly. Mmm, that would be a one nice dream to see tonight.
Anyways, just to cut the story short, I got very inspired by my mums story about their snowy day in Perm today and I decided to create a winter calendar. Unfortunately I didn't have much patience to finish it, but there is a rough work so you can imagine what it would look like when it's finished.
To end up my post I would like you to read this cute little poem called FIRST SNOW by Mary Louise Allen:
Beautiful feathery flakes of snow
Over the woodland and field they go
Making a blanket so warm and deep
Over the flowers that lie asleep
