Haiku: Siberian Winds

Siberian winds
weaving frost and dreams
the quiet begins

Near the end of last week the so-called ‘Beast from the East’ brought snow and icy winds from Siberia which inspired this post. These winds have now passed and the day-time temperatures are rising just above freezing again.

We hope you are keeping warm and wish you all a peaceful and blessed new week.

With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

      1. Glad to hear that, Xenia πŸ™‚ a cup of hot chocolate by the fireplace and a warm, cosy blanket is my way of beating the cold.πŸ˜€ We don’t have harsh winters here. I haven’t seen snow either.
        lots of love to all of you πŸ’—

  1. I think your Siberian winds made it all the way to Albuquerque, New Mexico today, Xenia. It was icy cold when taking the dogs for a walk; we all did it as fast as possible! πŸ™‚ Happy to be indoors now. The dogs are stretched out for their naps. They are both labs. One is 12 and the other 8.

    1. Wow! It was a very biting wind and it sounds like you are experiencing the same. Great to hear you are looking after two seniors again – please give them a big pat from me and I look forward to hearing more about them soon! :o) xxx
