♫ ♪ Fleet Foxes - White winter Hymnal

(Scroll down for translation =) )

Μια υπέροχη χειμωνιάτικη μέρα. Παγωνιά που σε δραστηριοποεί, ειδάλως ακίνητος μπορεί να μετατραπείς σε παγοκολώνα. Τα δεντρα γυμνά από φύλλα, παρόλα ταύτα μέσα τους υπάρχει ζωή. Είναι γεμάτα με ματάκια, σε λίγους μήνες θα δώσουν ζωή σε εκατοντάδες δροσερά καταπράσινα φύλλα. Ετοιμάζει εμβόλια, θα μπολιάσει τα δέντρα. Κλαδί κερασιάς πάνω σε δέντρο κορομηλιάς, έπιασε μια φορά γιατί όχι και δεύτερη. Οι ελιές μεγάλωσαν, φέτος θα δώσουν καρπό, θα είναι μια καλή σοδειά. Ένα παρατημένο φυτό με άγριες πιπεριές, δεν τρωγονται οι καρποί και μένουν παραπεταμένοι μέχρι να σαπίσουν. Γιατί να τους αφήσουμε να σαπίσουν; Ας τους κάνουμε κάτι!!  Κάτι έχω στο μυαλό μου, ω ναι! Μεθαύριο είναι μια καλή μέρα για να σας πω, θα ναι Παρασκευή! Είναι ωραίες οι Παρασκευές, σημαίνουν το τέλος της εβδομάδας! Μένω χαμένη στις σκέψεις μου για μερικά λεπτά, νιώθω το τσουχτερό κρύο να μου τρυπάει τα κοκκάλα, νιώθω ότι πρέπει να γυρίσω στο σπίτι. Ανοίγοντας την πόρτα με υποδέχεται μια λαχταριστή μυρωδιά! Ωωω μας έφτιαξε αυγόφετες και έχουμε και σπιτικό γιαούρτι! Μικρές καθημερινές χαρές!!

It's a beautiful winter day. It's sunny but frost, staying motionless for five minutes and you could turn into an ice cube. Although the trees are bare of leaves, there is life in them.The are full of apexes, which in a few months will give birth to hundreds of fresh green leaves. He prepares the vaccines, he is going to graft trees. He dreams of a cherry tree branch on a damson tree, it succeeded last year why not this year? The olives are grown, this year they will fructify, it will be a good harvest. A neglected plant with wild peppers stands there, it's fruits can't be eaten and they are left to rot. Why letting them rot? Let's do them something! I have something in my mind, yes! The day after tomorrow is a good day to tell you, yes on Friday! Fridays are nice, they are the end of the week! I stay there lost in my thoughts for a few minutes, I feel the bitter cold penetrates me to the bones, I feel I must go inside. By opening the door, a delicious smell welcomes me! Ohh they made us egg and bread slices (wait for the recipe!) and we have also homemade yogurt! Small everyday joys!

Μου λείπει όλο αυτό το πράσινο, η χαρά της ζωής είναι αυτός ο μπαξές!

I just miss all this green, this garden is the joy of life!
