Today has been a beautiful day, weather-wise. Yesterday, we had brilliant blue skies and sunshine all day, but man, was it cold! And, last night, when we returned home from a local restaurant, the inky-black sky was littered with sparkling stars, like we haven’t seen since the heady days of summer.

Because we aren’t overlooked at all, we don’t have curtains or blinds at the bedrom windows (but we do have the obligatory shutters so when you want darkness, you can have it), and because we are high up, we can see the weather rolling in. And this morning, we woke up to fields of white, as the snow came down from Slovenia…
