Sunset in January in Spain

I just read that we should have 330 days with sun per year here where I live now. We do also have sun now, even it is only in the middle of the day. In the evening, night and morning here is really cold. Many got snow in Spain, I feel lucky, it was not here. I need the sun to feel alive, for my health and mind.

Untouched snow are beautiful and in the cities mostly ugly. We need to go away from the city to find the nice and beautiful snow, at least to see the beauty.

When I think back to the winters in Denmark, I don’t miss them, they were so very cold. Not always snow, but freezing all over, which resulted in a life, where I needed to take good care not to get damages. I really hope, that my family in Denmark take good care of themselves now, where they got a lot of snow.

I do my best to stay warm here. The houses here are builded to avoid the sun and not the cold. Mostly of the houses are not isolated, many so bad that you can look out through open holes around windows and doors, which makes it very difficult to keep the warm inside, when we have heavy wind like now. Then is wool blankets a great idea.

My cats have their lamb skins, as they love to lie at. I do understand them πŸ˜€

No matter the weather we are going out for long walks first in the green nature for playing and training, then we visit the beach and play more there and sometimes Odin is swimming, which he enjoy all the year. The water doesn’t feel so cold, when I wash my face and hands in the sea, maybe that is why Odin love to swim so much.

I feel that the salt water helps me to get rid of bad emotions or mood. Just to stand at the beach, look over the Mediterranean Sea, listen to the waves gives me so much peace in my mind. Sometimes I do my meditation by the beach and I use to feel totally recharged, when we go home after that. Even Odin come very close to me, when I do my meditation at the beach, he want to be a part of that and maybe he receive love this way too.


Odin at the beach

We have several kind of beaches here. Many are with stones, as are not sharp any longer. The sea did shape them, so they are nice to walk at, also for Odin. I do check him to avoid any damages. The beaches with more sand are the beaches, where it can be difficult to visit in the summer caused the many tourists. Then I’m happy that we have our nice beaches close to our area with stones. Not so comfortable to lie at, which give us chances too πŸ˜€

I love to take photos, when we are out at our walks. Sunsets are very beautiful here, why I also photograph these very often and show you the best of them πŸ˜‰

    Hello Dear! I have to say I am still excited when we get snow. Not about the driving because in Great Britain today people seem to lose all common sense when it comes to driving as soon as they see a snow flake. But snow itself and a crisp, clear sunny day is what I love in winter. What I hate though are those rainy, damp, cold days. They are horrible. That is when I think of moving closer to where you live…… πŸ™‚

    • Hi Bee. I like a cold and freezing clear day with blue heaven, but not this heavy humidity.
      People need to learn to drive very careful in snow, otherwise they are playing with others life too.
      Beautiful but dangerous πŸ˜‰

        indeed but here there is usually no snow on the roads. At least hardly ever in the South. Scotland is a different matter entirely but I suspect they still know how to deal with it. I know though what you mean because I feel the same πŸ™‚

  3. Beautiful photos Irene!

  4. You are very lucky to live so close to the sea! πŸ™‚

  5. It’s beautiful, Irene, for you to meditate by the sea and Odin to feel the spirit right there with you! Thank you for sharing the special scene with us. I hope your family back in Denmark is safe in the snow, too.

  6. I loved your description of Denmark, and now Spain and how the houses are built. Stay warm under those wool blankets! The sea looks so beautiful!

  7. What beautiful photos.

  8. Absolutely beautiful! Spain sounds cozy

  9. Beautiful! The beach is a great place to meditate! So you live in Spain? By the way you have a beautiful blog.
