Yes, we did have the first winter day today! *yay*
The temperature was a bit below zero, and you could feel "winter" in the air just as soon as you stepped outside. I don't know what it is, but the air feels and smells in a certain way when it's winter! I just loved it, I'm always hot and sweaty, so I just love it when the cold strikes.
However, I am told this joy will be short for me, as we will have temperatures above zero until Christmas Eve at least. *sigh*
I went around Christmas shopping for most of the day! I could go to a couple of malls I have a hard time reaching through trains and buses, so it felt great to have a car, and wander around a bit. I didn't have much trouble buying Christmas presents either, because I knew what to get for everyone except my little sister, and since she's 2½ years old, it's not a big problem buying presents for her. Walk into a toy store and you can pretty much buy the entire store! :)
Anyway, I'm mostly done with the presents for now ... I just might be persuaded to buy something more for my little sister *lol* but that'll be if I find something I just know she'll really like, otherwise I do have presents enough as it is.
Tonight has mostly been spent wrapping presents of course! :) With the help from Zorro! He's not that interested in the wrapping papers, but when it comes to tape and string ... boy, he just loves that! :) Sometimes I ended up getting a little more help than I actually asked for ... but I don't mind!!
Unfortunately, the cat on the picture is not Zorro ... although it actually looks quite a lot like him! :) I would just love to be able to at least dress him up in a Santa-hat and take a picture, but I have the distinct feeling he will not let me do that! So I guess you, and I, will have to enjoy this "fake" Zorro-Santa! :)
