It is very cold here right now.
It is winter in Buenos Aires.
Many of the trees are bare, the wind is sharp and while there is sunshine more than clouds, it is cold and windy and most people are happy being inside, warm and snug.
Two of those people are right here, enjoying the sun coming in the french doors and windows and the pretty color of the 100 year old wooden floors that glow in the sunshine, the wobbles in the glass in the doors, that shows up when the light hits it just so.
The radiator is working hard, the room is warm and toasty.
Leave the living room and you step into cooler temperatures and less sunshine .
The sun rises in the morning, outside our kitchen window, setting outside the living room at the front ..
Every room in our apartment has windows and there is always some amount of natural light coming in.
For those who live in cities full of apartments buildings, high rises etc, you know how valuable this light is. Especially in Winter.
But I am looking forward to warmer temperatures.
In a few months I will be here whining about the heat but right now, I think I have had enough cold weather.
I am tired of my coats.
I find myself daydreaming about living somewhere else, somewhere more familiar, somewhere that has no ghost of a Pup walking around.
And then you will find me in the real estate websites.
I found a house.
It is too big, it has a large property and it is just the two of us now.
But I want this house.
This is the stuff of my new daydreams.
Living in a house in the country, gardens, farmers markets, driving a car again, having company for the weekend , sitting out in the evening and watching fireflies and listening to the crickets and little creatures that make all that noise on a summer night.
It had better warm up ..
Buenos Aires still holds a lot of unexplored territory for us and I want to get started.
