Started snowing again, earlier snow had largely melted, but this is settling again. Below freezing now.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!

I am cosying up in my wee flat, making soup and comforting goulash!! 

 

Goulash? Mmmmm, that sounds good!
Do we have a Goulash thread? There's a Hungarian place near me that makes wonderful Goulash, but I've never had the nerve to ask for a recipe…i_am_hungry

Let's see…7:30am and its all ready 28 degrees! Ugh! Hopefully its supposed to get up to 41, I have hopes!

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

We had snow until 3.00 pm then the sun came our and it all looked lovely.  Most of the snow has gone now but the sky has suddenly clouded over again.  I hope for rain, not snow.

I'll try that again!

Michelle, you took me to that Hungarian place and we had the most marvellous meal.  Do you remember we took some home, because there was so much of it.

Bright sunshine, blue skies, the temperature is 0*C , which is colder than when I woke at 5am & unlikely to get above 1*C all day. No snow overnight but it is a rather icy outside where yesterday's snow melted.  eeek I must be very careful when I go out to the chickens to see if there are any eggs today.

I do! I do! I remember that every time we go, and I'm glad I can connect one of my favorite people with one of my favorite places! big_hug

 

We gave up cold with clear skys for a smidge warmer and gray skies.
I don't think much of the trade off…

No fresh snow today, but further east they had heavy snow for a while. Cold around freezing.

 Are we having fun yet? I am!
