The first snowfall

Snowfall in Odenplan, Stockholm  |  The first snowfall on afeathery*nest  |  http://afeatherynest.com

When I woke up this morning and drew up the blind in our cozy little room and saw a fresh (very thin) layer of snow covering the playground below I'm pretty sure my squeal of delight rivaled that of the children who were actually playing in said playground.

I'm not sure how long my delight in Swedish winter weather will last, so best to enjoy the thrill of it while I can, right?

Of course today just happened to be the day I had planned to meet a friend near Odenplan for lunch. A sushi lunch. Not exactly comfort food for the first "snow storm" of the season, but at least the miso soup to start and green tea to end were appropriate. Helpfully so, since I walked the 25 minutes there and back despite the snow melting as soon as it landed on the streets and sidewalks, turning me into a dripping mess within minutes of setting out.

But there's something to be said for being out in the midst of the first snowfall.

One year ago: Odds and ends
Two years ago: Not a first
