Feeling chill for #SundayStills

December means Winter

It’s not every year I can say that December means Winter!

The last time I was in the Northern Hemisphere for December was back in 2007, when the Mathematician and I travelled around visiting our three daughters in England and Sweden. We all then met up for a magical white Christmas in the ski resort town of Livigno in Northern Italy. (By the way, it was my last time on skis, as I decided it would never get any better than that!).

On that trip we also visited friends in Denmark, Finland and Scotland, so it really was a ‘chilled’ time in lots of ways!

Usually December is a hot and sweaty time in our small Australian town, but this year we are enjoying a change of scenery and weather. We usually spend at least some time at the beach too – which won’t be happening this year!

Beach at Christmas time
At the beach – this is how I usually chill out in December!

In fact this year will be a very ‘chill’ time in more ways than one!

Sunday Stills this week is all about December Chills so I’m sharing a few shots from our current location in Somerset UK. Thankfully, t’s not been too cold so far, and we’ve had a nice mix of rain and sunshine with gorgeous sunrises thrown in. It’s been a bit crisp at times and frosts are forecast for the coming days. I often say, we don’t travel for the weather 🙂

But I do have the feeling it will be getting colder in the coming weeks!

This quote sums up my definition of chill:

Stress doesn’t really go with my outfit!

How do you manage to stay chill at this time of year with everything going on? Do you find you get caught up in the hectic-ness of it all?

Have a great December wherever you are in the world, and stay chilled 🙂

A chilly Deb xx

  1. Wintery Christmas is one of the things I miss most about living in the UK. I hope you’ve got a Christmas jumper so you totally look the part! I’ve been loving following your pics on Instagram (even if they do make me feel a tiny bit homesick!)

  2. Well you’re certainly chilled out – temperature wise and lifestyle wise atm Deb. We’ve just arrived for our annual trip to Rottnest Island and the temps are in the high 20’s today – so not all that chilled temp-wise, but feeling the relaxed vibes starting (Ross is napping atm!) Enjoy your chilled out Christmas visit xx

  3. Glad you could link this week, Debbie! I fully expected some chilling at the beach images and you had them! Nice to be able to experience some winter weather in December. I would LOVE to experience summer temps in December…maybe a trip to see relatives in Chile in a year or two!

  4. It must be such a pleasant change for you, from the usual summer to winter.
    Here too in India it is the season of cold in December.
    The last two days have been cloudy and drizzly too.
    Have a good time, Deb!

    1. Thanks Sandra, I am having fun so far and not letting the weather bother us too much. We knew what to expect so packed accordingly. Yes that quote really appealed to me and made me smile 🙂 . Glad to hear you enjoyed it too!


  5. Love the meaning for ‘chilled’ in both ways. I went to USA just after Christmas 2005 into NY 2006 and it was cold at night in Las Vegas and wet in San Francisco but mild in LA and Hawaii. I imagine, staying ‘chilled’ as mum to one and grandmother to another is a different kettle of fish. Staying close by but not hovering is one very fine line at times. Thank you for linking up for Life This Week. Next week’s optional prompt is: 49/51 Taking Stock #5 9/12/19 Hope to see you there! Denyse.
