And as if to celebrate Christmas Eve - not that it is anything special in Russia - we got a whole 1 centimeter of snow over night. Now it looks a tiny bit like winter out there - if you have a good imagination. At least it is cold enough that rivers are frozen, so there will be normal ice playgrounds and sculptures, instead of cardboard we had last year.
And I also want to apologize to all who are waiting letters from me. Between damn weather, work and leftover cold by the time I get home and try to write your letters my mind is completely dead. So I either end up staring at the paper trying to find what I can say or dumbly pocking at my laptop. Hopefully I'll get over it soon.
