Happy new year (not a very happy start after watching news on January6)…
This year I will… pick up my phone less and books more. And favorite magazines. Take Charlie on long walks. Breath the fresh air deep. Continue writing my blog (this blog). Travel to destinations I have not been to (beautiful calendars had to do for the wanderlust). Love fearlessly. Love fiercely… Well, I copied the resolutions from 2020 to 2021. New year new chance.
It’s a winter wonderland (Spain may not call it that positively). It’s a dream for kids, skiers. It’s also lockdown 1.0 in 2021. Or extended from 2020. Numbers increasing. Motivation to stay at home decreasing. It’s winter time. Christmas is over. The only thing looking forward to now: the end of lockdown, spring & better times.
You cannot do much these days but resting and going for long wonderful winter walks (at least that resolution works out very well). In the snow. In vineyards.
And every day at 7:30pm it goes like this: watching people on their way home to meet the Swabian curfew at 8pm. Same for us. Dinner starts nowadays at 4pm. Alarm clock included to make sure we leave our friends houses on time (back home 7:59pm. Puh. Made it.). After 8pm ghost towns. Some teenagers still smoking a cigarette (or 2). Poor guys. Feeling with them. The only excuse these days after 8pm: Charlie.
(Holiday) ideas for 2021: in mind, no plans. Waiting what’s going to happen. And more importantly when it will happen.
Winter time. Lockdown time. This time is for long sleeping nights in the hush of snowflakes. Time to snuggle in at home. To read a book. To watch Netflix. Soaking in a wonderful smelling lavender bath. Time to create wanderlust destinations.
Yes, it sucks (beaming ourselves to the Maldives would be great, agree.). Be patient (we got vaccines). Stay healthy! We can do this!
Instead of busting one’s head in the sand… be like Hugo and bust it into hay.
