The last month of the year is already upon us. Where I live in the south of France, there is little chance of snow. Saying that the Pyrenees mountains are just round the corner and we can see the snow covered tops when driving around town. The nearest ski area is just over an hour away. A day trip there with a few hours on the slopes is more than possible.
But in town, it is fairly warm during the day as long as the sun is out. Yesterday the temperature reached 20c around lunch time and we were able to have a very enjoyable and comfortable BBQ outside.
The local Xmas market is opening this week but somehow I miss the freezing cold temperatures to be able to enjoy my yearly cup of piping hot mulled wine.
Therefore I am off in a couple of days to northern Germany to visit family and friends. I always have fond memories of the Xmas market in Hannover.
I wonder if there will be snow this year.
Got to start my Xmas shopping too and since we shall have visitors at home for the festivities, Inde to stock up on drinks, fois gras, order the oysters and other delicacies. I have decided on a capon for Xmas lunch and that has already been ordered.
