For the past few days we've been trapped inside the house or the office. Our first winter rain is falling with wind softly blowing while some of us is still trying to find signs of autumn / fall. Winter sliped quietly past fall and suprised most of us. But I love the winter rain and cosyness of home and making some wholesome soup and stew, and reading, knitting, sewing . . . in front of the fire. And my 10 year old does not want to wear shoes in the wet. She loves the feeling of water under her feet, a feeling of being free.
