-6 degrees celsius.
98% humidity
The brightest Spanish sun you ever did see. Like when you turn up brightness, saturation and contrast to near maximum settings on photoshop... Like this.

(Photo of me eating soup by Salvatore, turning up of brightness and contrast to ridiculous levels by moi...)

Lots of coffee,
some reading, and
a spot of baking in the afternoon.
Present wrapping (something I take pride in)...
Suitcase packing (going here for 14 days, though not the entire usual trek. Just straight to Puglia for Christmas, and back. In a plane, which will be a convenient first...)
All to an exotic soundtrack... from the comfort and safety of these sunny rooms we flit and float about in....

Yes, life is good, but I'm feeling a bit uneasy. Things it might be:
The cold weather
The endless consumerism wherever I look.
Something else...?

As I like to say to my mother when she tells me about a problem,
"Oh Well.."


  1. I really like that picture...of course, I also really like crazy-bright sunny days!

    It sounds like there's a lot going on in your life. MFA applications and an upcoming move, right? Two possible sources of unease. Whatever it is, take it easy, enjoy your holiday, and hopefully you'll be feeling better soon.

  2. Life sounds interesting! Did you end up with that glass of wine? I did, and loved every drop with some home made pizza. I'm looking forward to reading about your travels, have a lovely Christmas xo

  3. By this post your blog sounds captivating- I hope you dont mind me dropping in every once in a while...

  4. I always feel a bit uneasy around this time of year too. So much hustle and bustle!

  5. Merry Christmas and a very Happy Healthy New Year to you and all your loved ones.

    Hugs, Gaby
