Feeling hopeful

The other day, we happened to meet the owner of the little summer cottage we are renting and heard his proposed construction project on the site hasn’t seen any progress whatsoever. This is an excellent piece of news to us. We are starting to feel hopeful the lease will be renewed in March and we would be able to spend at least another summer by the sea.





Getting your hopes up is a wonderful feeling now that we’ve truly entered the gloomy period after an unusually short ‘midseason’. These days I’ve barely warmed up by the time the sun is setting. Not that I feel warm even then but it is a heart-warming sensation to have this kind of delight to look forward to now that all of a sudden the temperature is staying below freezing point throughout the day.

  1. My fingers are crossed for you. It must be hard at this time of year with your very short days. No doubt you have very cosy homes to compensate. Hope it doesn't get too cold. Looking forward to some of your beautiful snowy pictures. B x

  2. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and also us. It has been so lovely to share the surroundings of your little cottage, your images stay in my mind! It feels cold here this week but it looks much colder with you! Sarah x

    1. Thank you, Sarah. We've had some more snow these past couple of days so it's starting to look and feel rather wintry.

    1. Thank you, Olympia. It is hard to stay active with so little daylight but luckily time flies faster when you get older.
