Snow in our Life

İstanbul was under a beautiful but very cold snow blanket for the last couple days. Most of the time we are staying inside indulging ourselves with books, DVDs, Australian Open on TV and as you can guess with lots of eating and drinking. So far little Hera's natural calls are our only contact with the world outside. Here are some photos from our nearby park..






Guess who is this curious nose??


Finally a must on snowy days: Gluewine - hot wine

  1. Wow. I love the photos. Hope that you are keeping warm and snug. Sure the mulled wine is helping with that.

  4. It's so odd to see snow in Turkey when here in Canada there is very little. We are hosting the winter Olympics in three weeks and people are getting concerned. Mother nature is a bit out of whack this year. Great pics! Love Hera's nose and little coat!

  7. Turquoise: These are lovely pictures. Love the falling snow one. Hera is darling as always. We have been watching the Australian Open too. I like Nadal, but looks like he is troubled with injuries. Stay warm!

    Beautiful photos. What type of wine do you use for Gluewine? Sounds like something Paul would like.
