Homeward bound

This time next week I’ll be back in Magura, after six weeks in the California winter – warm sun, blue skies, the Pacific Ocean warm enough to paddle in, breakfast out in the garden…

Now it’s back to Transylvania and the freezing, clear air of the Carpathian Mountains, the silence and the space. After urban American busy-ness it will be a blessed delight to return to the simple life.

My housesitters tell me it’s been pretty warm in Magura – for January – with snow coming and going, and the mercury as high as 16C last week. But now I gather there is knee-deep snow again, so I’ll have quite a shock coming back with my SoCal thin blood and thin clothes.

If I don’t go into hibernation immediately, I’ll look forward to catching up with my neighbours about events and news and plans for 2013.

When are you coming to see us?

    • That’s what I like to hear…
      The last two years, summer has gone on till the first week in October, with temps still up in the top 20s and even over 30C. Then we’ve had an out-of-the-blue (literally) snowfall, then a quick thaw, and a slow slide down the thermometer into autumn. That’s very pretty, with turning leaves and first frosts (after the snow!) and smoke from wood fires. Last year we had low cloud and rain some days, but the area’s pretty in any weather. There’s no knowing what will happen, weather-wise, this coming year, though, so all the above may be out of the window!
