- duck boots,
- cashmere beanie, scarf and socks,
- feather down parka,
...and most of all the common sense I demonstrated when I got all of the above.
With the average 10-20 cm of snow piled up and negative temperatures, I'm so glad I put my money on these useful practical items.
I may not use them as often as, say, fellow Scandinavians or Canadians but they do come handy at least a few weeks a year, leaving me with the ability/pleasure to walk around at ease in quiet deserted streets in a snow globe like landscape on a sunday morning... Wonderful!

PS: As we're still in january, technically my greetings for 2013 are not out of place... so happy new year!
I'm also thankful for all the readers who keep checking up my blog and stick with me in spite of my unreliable presence.
I didn't mean to be away from the blogosphere for so long. The after-holidays often leave me kind of blue and uninspired (must be the drawback from all the sugar rush and the return to reality after days of artificial collective cheery feelings during the holidays... Yay, I'm a cynic on occasion)...
Then, I had a few days off, realized how tired I was, cut back internet time especially in the evening to relax with a bit of yoga and keep up with The Wheel of Time books instead. As this new rythmn is proving to be quite beneficial for my health, mood and energy I decided to keep on this track even after going back to work.
A great combination for neglecting blogging.
But these past couple of days, I felt the spark coming back and I finally logged on today. I must have lots of catching up to do with my favorite blogs!
