Winter vacation


Today's the last day of work before the winter vacation next week. I love being a teacher and having many long vacations to enjoy! Nevertheless I have two big piles of essays and tests that I need to correct next week so I won't be able to relax completely. My boyfriend's mother arrived yesterday and she's going to stay with us for a week. Hopefully it won't be too cold outside so that we'll be able to get out a little bit while she's here. She's not used to cold or snow (I think this might be the first or second time she's seen any)at all, so her threshold of cold is definitely a lot lower than ours.

Frozen waterfall

I'm so horrible at blogging, yet I don't want to be. I want to keep up with my blog, but at the end of the day I feel too lazy to do anything. I think I just need to get into a routine again, but I'm not quite sure how to do that since I'm a pretty unstructured person. I've dyed my hair as you can see, but that's something I got done in early January in fact. Actually I need to re-dye my roots pretty soon!

We took these pictures on Sunday when my boyfriend, my dog and I went for a long walk together. It felt kind of springlike outside since the sun was shining and the air warmish.

Norwegian Wood

I had no idea there was a film adaption of "Norwegian Wood", the beautiful book by Haruki Murakami that I read a couple of years ago, until I by chance came across the trailer for the movie. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with the book, but it's set in Japan in the 60s where 20-year-old Toru Watanabe is a student. He begins a friendship/relationship with his deceased best friend's girlfriend, Naoko, and they grow quite close, but she suddenly goes away to a sanatorium. While she is away Toru also becomes attracted to Midori who he studies with. The book is about love, emotions, sadness and is written in such a beautiful language. As for the movie (judging by the trailer), it seems so, so beautiful. I really can't wait for it to be out here in March.

Happy new year, everyone! I feel bad for being such a lousy blogger. It feels quite challenging to be blogging again after not blogging for over two months in the fall, and I just need to get back into the routine of blogging again somehow.

Anyway, these pictures are from about a week ago when my boyfriend and I went out for a walk in a park together. I was wearing a new knitted top I had bought at the Mango sale - it's so warm and cozy!
