Postcards from a changing season

October 14th, 2009

Ten days ago we were having a glorious Indian summer, a last hurrah. Summer is surely gone now, it’s leaving goodbye notes everywhere.

    This morning I went to tip water out of Small Boy’s wheelbarrow and a thin layer of ice slipped off.
    We had our first hot chocolates of the season; I love steamed milk.
    At the zoo Boychen’s hands were red and cold
    We bought Small Boy’s snow suit today
    Hockey camp starts on Saturday
Another Swiss winter is on the way.

    I’ve started drinking chai tea on most days; that’s always a good indicator of the start of winter for me (that and the fact that suddenly it’s freezing!).

    Our fall came on quickly too. Earlier this week, we were in short sleeves; today, we’re shivering in our sweaters. In Italy, the heat usually isn’t turned on until the middle of November, so we still have a bit of shivering to do!
