Drinking almond milk hot chocolate in pajamas while reading about sheep investigating murder is the best part of my days lately. I guess I’m sort of overtired.

It’s raining again since days (actually since weeks, with eventual breaks). I spent the last summer in Holland and it was raining all the time. In June I thought, we still have the whole summer ahead of us. In July I got nervous, but thought, we didn’t lose the battle yet, August is the hottest month of summer in Europe, there is still some hope. In August I was furious, in September apathetic and in October I became depressed. And while I clearly cannot blame my clinical depression on the weather, it is a scientific fact that sunshine does count, where mental illness (at least depression) is concerned.

Now I’m in Austria and it rains uninterruptedly. I start to believe that I’m die Frau mit den Regenhänden (the woman with rainy hands). Wherever I go I take my heavy clouds with me.

So for today is a photo of some strawberries and a cup of hot chocolate, made with coconut milk and without sugar (because, despite of the overwhelming amount of photos of tiramisus, chocolates and coffee cups on this blog, I’m still on my gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb antidepressant diet); wich I will drink in bed while reading Perry Mason. My new goal is to get through of all the existing Perry Mason-stories. I became somewhat oversatiated with musicology and health care literature lately.

For today we planned to take some photos with Ancsangyalka in the city but it was so freezingly cold that we had to give up after forty minutes, because even in gloves we couldn’t move our fingers anymore. They were like frozen sticks of wood, not the least flexible. The art of pushing the tiny button on my camera with gloves on is something I never really managed to master. So we ended up drinking rum-flavoured hot chocolate in a bookshop cafe.
