Here I am, back again to my blog that I somewhat neglected for a while, due to the visit of my sister and niece who came from Paris to see my newborn grandson. They remained in Athens for a week, we had a wonderful time, and they were lucky enough to have a good weather... until the snow started to fall yesterday. Today they fly back to France. 

As I said, we are having a second wave of cold, with today a storm of snow! It is very beautiful and looks like Siberia! In those circumstances, nothing better than a good fire, a good book and a knitting... not forgetting of cup of coffee! My blue jacket is progressing slowly but steadily...

  1. Oh! My! Christine, it is a real snow storm not just a few flurries! It looks like Canada except we expect it !! Do you have snow storm like that often? How many inches or cm? Glad to hear you had a nice visit with your sister. Stay warm.

  3. Oh c'est trop beau la neige lorsqu'on peut rester à l'intérieur !! ;)
    Brrrr....nous avons nous aussi des températures inférieures à zéro mais pas de neige.
    J'aime beaucoup ton sac à laine en Liberty ! C'est toi qui l'as fait ?
    Profite bien du feu, de ton livre et de tes aiguilles !!
    Gros bisous

  5. Absolutely beautiful.......I can't think of anything more enjoyable than sewing by the fire when it's so snowy outside.

  6. Beautiful snowy surroundings and a lovely roaring fire to keep you warm!
    I love your garden gate with the lovely stone pillars.

  7. How strange... in my mind I always are thinking about Athens in connection with sun, heat and summer... But it looks really great (... and your photos are great)... how cosy & comfortable it must be sit near the fire reading or knitting. Sigh! :-)
