And what a great first week it was being that we celebrated MotH’s birthday over the Epiphany weekend. I’ll have to get back to that cake in another post because it was that good, but as the first post of the year, I’m taking it easy.
During his time off from work, it was enough for me that MotH made freshly squeezed orange juice, fruit salad, and toast every morning. But birthdays are good excuses for going out and having oversized coffees and pistachio and chocolate brioche pastries.
Weatherwise, the first day of the year itself was pretty ominous – tempo da lupi as we say (which literally translates to wolve’s weather aka really fugly conditions) – and looked like it was going to stay that way for the rest of the day.
But by day’s end it cleared up to this beautiful sunset while the rest of Lecco lay hidden in a blanket of clouds. The forecast says to expect another bout of freezing weather which hopefully will include some snow.
