According to MSN there was heavy snow in Europe yesterday, while I enjoyed sitting out in a patio chair looking out on a beautiful landscape with not a cloud in the sky. We are having “Unseasonably warm” days this week. In the late afternoon, the shadows on the hills highlight the different ranges of hills in the west. I can’t see east, because our house sits in the side of a hill. I particularly wanted to absorb the view, because moving from this place is looming ever closer in the future…and I won’t mind too much, because I am getting tired of having to climb back up the steep driveway every time I go for the mail or take a walk in the neighborhood.
