I can feel it in the air. Though the sun was up and bright this morning and the sky was exceptionally clear and blue when I dropped the kids to school, there was a distinct chill in the air. The temperature read 15 degrees at the Akasaka-Mitsuke Crossing at around 9 in the morning. When I glanced at the temperature board on my way back this evening, it read 10 degrees. Yes, its that time of the year again. Some of you might think it a bit early, but suddenly it feels like Christmas, snow (hopefully), cold feet searching for warm skin under layers of blankets, snuggling under a blanket, listening to the cold wind blowing outside the window, downing a few to ensure the ‘inner’ blanket remains warm, hot miso soup on a cold morning, those old Christmas carols and songs on the car stereo, Jim Reeves’ Christmas songs, Anne Murray’s ‘sad old wintery feeling’, memories of Christmas carols back home, Christmas ‘lengkhawm’ songs….. And, most of all, we’ll be going home for Christmas and New Year. At least to Delhi.
With all these in mind, thought I’d also change my ‘theme’ to the same old Christmas theme with which I started this blog round about this time last year.
Here’s me (probably the first in all of blogosphere) hoping we all have a Wonderful Christmas this year 🙂
