Winter Is Coming….

My sincere apologies for not writing anything for the past week, I have been busy preparing for winter. I have never done this before, so it took awhile.

Because we don’t have heating or anything that magically makes you feel warmer in the winter like an AC, we have to prepare ahead of time when the temperature is still above zero degrees Celsius. We got mats to cover the cracks in the front gate and got out all the heavy coats for indoor usage, sometimes I think it’s colder indoors than outdoors because at least there is the Sun out there to bathe you with his warmth. We also collected all the wheat and corn we grew, and prepared the garden for the harsh winter.

There are also some advantages to the cold weather though, because of it we actually have our own fridge now. All you have to do is leave whatever you want to keep cold outside at night, and BAM the next morning it’s magically cold. And if you want to freeze it, just put it in a tub of water and leave it outside. Right now, it is still late Fall, and temperature are ok, ranging from 40s to 60s degrees Fahrenheit, but starting in November there are going to be some fluffy white visitors from the sky and warm-ups are going to get more important.

I heard from my mother that Walnut still has 90s Fahrenheit weather?! so predictable.
