Today, temperatures rose above freezing point, well, not much; I took a walk through my hometown, wearing a velvet cap and fur shawl. So, I was quite comfortable. Keeping one's head warm is essential, but so many people in Germany don't wear caps, even in the freezing cold. The ladies don't like to ruin their hairstyle. The very view almost kills me.
winter yummy, Russian pasta pouches called Pelmeni, filled with minced turkey meat (ready bought!), slightly fried in butter and served with a spoonful of yoghurt, together with sauerkraut and mushrooms. My favourite! The cold weather makes calories a vital necessity, sorry. I took a picture, but my husband said: "Ooh, that looks awful, hope you didn't show it to anybody."
