Monday's measly minutes #6

Dear Monday,
Its finally winters.
Not the average, mildly sweatered, bright sunny winters.
But snowy, shivery, dark and damp winters. They have finally arrived.
With lots of snow over the weekend.
The very thought when penned down gave me goosebumps.
So while the world gears up for Christmas, the people back home are gearing to face power cuts, freezing water and freezing temperatures.
I have been strictly warned to assist and not to call on landline. Because it is placed in the corridor and it is numbingly cold for them to stand there and talk.
The markets are full of veggies, colorful, nutritious bounties so lacking in summers.
And groundnuts, walnuts, cashewnuts, chilgozas ... Mouthwatering, delectable treats.
Not to forget the woollen wardrobe that has so much to offer.
Now that I think of all these things, winters suddenly don't sound gloomy at all.
And I guess I am running out of my measly minutes also.
I have to splash cold water on my face.
Hey, can we stretch the time limit ... Just a little ... Just saying.
Okay so the water is cold and yes it is finally winters here ...

  1. Hi Ruby,

    I liked your minutes from yesterday. Here in Minnesota, winters are almost always brutal, but this weekend, the snow had actually all melted and it was warm enough to leave the house without a jacket. So odd.

    Normal weather has returned since then.

    Thank you for dropping by, by the way.

    Take care,
    Emilie
