Frozen Lake

My other half and I spent a few days visiting my family's summer cottage, which is a great place in winter too. My uncle had bought a hot tub so it obviously needed to be tried out. A few things can top sitting in a tub full of hot water, drinking beer, when it's freezing weather!


Today on the frozen lake. The ice was still too thin to walk very far, but where I'm standing, even if the ice gave in, there would be water only to my knees.

Filling the tub in appropriate clothing. I look like a black michelin man in my super warm jacket ;D

Trying to do a pirouette on the ice to get my skirt to lift takes lots of concentration!

The sunshine was wonderful!

I've eaten enough Christmas foods for this year and all my presents were wonderful, so it was an excellent holiday! A few days of vacation still before I'm back at the office. I'm so happy the days are finally getting longer, I love light!

  2. Is that the lake you "shed" your winter coat? :) It is so beautiful! I love snow and I haven't see it for two years now, it feels like my heart is almost broken watching nice photos like this and makes me want to live in Scandinavia even more, ah :D

    1. Yes, the very same lake, well spotted! Scandinavia is a great place to live, aside from the darkest months if there's no snow :)

  3. What a lovely day we also had sunshine but I ate my breakfast as the sun was going down :-)! It's also very popular in Sweden to have one of those baths.

    1. So nice to know you are enjoying sunshine too! It often happens this time of year that the daylight is gone when I manage to haul my behind up from bed ;P
