happy talent

The snow that has fallen during last evening and night is already melting away …. but there is enough for the kids to have loads of fun this morning. It’s a very grey morning, but their laughters and scream bring color to my world.
All of them dressed waterproof and warm … having a great time on our backyard. At times like this … I really wish I was a kid again.

As I been working on this post it has started to snow heavy again – happy kids outside just now.

    • Thank you, Julie …. with me as child grown up with very snow filled winters – I would really struggle without the winter, but our last two winters has been too mild – so I hope for a good one this year … so I can use my warm new boots and parka. Have a lovely Sunday.

    • Thank you, Sylvia … I don’t think I ever heard this track before today … but it’s a really nice song. Yes, there is so much joy in seeing children having fun. *smile

  1. Great fun they had – and we had as children! Lovely post, Viveka. I walked through two parks with Totti, two parks that used to be filled with snowy children when mine were small. Today I saw 8 children , 2 in one of the parks and 6 in the other. I wonder – this is the only day of snow so far, and anyone can see it won’t last more than possibly tomorrow…Where are all the children?

    • A-C, all Swedish kids are inside with their Ipads or computers!!!! None on out our backyard neither. But the migrants kids are out in all weather here. Today is a truly beautiful day. Crisp and sunny. Love winter when it’s like this. *smile

  2. 🙂 It started snowing today, just as I was about to leave Hamburg. It took forever to de-ice the plane.
    But I kind of like the idea of snow and winter for Christmas 😉
    Many hugs xo 🙂

    • Glad that you don’t have summer temp. any longer … that was really wired. *smile – We have a crisp sunny winter day today .. with still some snow, even if some has melted. Enjoy Hamburg. Next year I will meet up with you there. Warm winter hugs filled with sunshine.
