As previously reported, it snowed in October. About half a week later the world still looked like this:

This photo was not taken when I was out cycling. I am slightly too fond of my own neck.

Coming home from school, about a week ago:

SA400927

SA400928

These are objectively terrible photographs, but there's something about their particular kind of crap, blurred, dark and grainy that I find quite charming.

Sorry.

Out on my bike today, with the snow having left:

That chimney in the background is a bizarrely big part of my impression of this town. You can see it from more or less everywhere I usually go.

& now it's, you know, November. So I'm planning on reading Sent i november and feeling vaguely melancholy, mostly.

And I guess making the Christmas things that'll benefit from sitting around in a cupboard for a couple of months. (I'm making mincemeat and then mince pies, as the single British contribution to Christmas. I've never actually made mincemeat before, so we'll see how that goes.)

Lovely!

Here in western Canada we had a dump of snow in October that lasted about a week, but now it's warmed up again. Winter doesn't really start here until November, generally. And yeah, the short days are a bear...

I'm already going to work in the dark, and though it'll be early December before I'm also coming home in the dark, that's plenty soon for me. I've lived here 13 years, and I've never gotten used to it. The cold is child's play (all you need is a house with good insulation and a nice down coat); it's the dark that will kill you.

Oh wow, you live in the prettiest place.

These pictures make me feel a little nostalgic, which is maybe kind of weird, considering I've never been to Sweden. I think I'm homesick for (Northern) Continental Europe in general.
