A fluttering of snow flakes. Temperatures dropping. Log fires. And a day trip for me to the Cologne Christmas markets on Saturday with a bunch of friends. Wrapped up against the chill wind and snow flakes, we had a lovely day sampling gluhwein, spicy sausages, waffles, hot nuts and hot chocolate. It wasn't all about the eating though! We did find some lovely Christmas presents, decorations, knitted hats and other hand made goodies. And as the daylight disappeared, the markets came to life with sparkling lights and stars in the trees and around the market huts.

Now I'm ready to welcome December with open arms. Bring on Christmas.
Hope you had a great weekend too.
