It's snowing

Yes, it's snowing outside, and it's a definite snow-theme inside as well. Listening to cross-country skiing race on telly, quilting my Snowman quilt...


...and humming this song:


In my book this is the ultimate winter song! I absolutely LOVE it! And for those who don't understand the lyrics, here's my (slightly clumsy) translation:

I'ts snowing heavenly correction fluid
Over mis-spelled summer
Listen, the sounds of the city dissappears
Under the falling floods
We have heard no snow flakes are the same
And such wonders one can think of for a moment
I lean my head back
And get an ice kiss on my mouth
And get an ice kiss

It's snowing silent star sisters
From invisible mouths
And dizzy from the attac from soundless seconds
Today, Earth is sieged by a heavenly army
Without weapons the whole city is brought to it's knees
Everything goes slower here on Earth
When all the sky falls down
When all the sky falls down

Thanks for the useless snow
A bother and a burden
Earth is sieged by a heavenly army
Without weapons the whole city is brought to it's knees
Everything goes slower here on Earth
When
all
the sky falls down
When
all
the sky falls down

Enjoy your Sunday!
Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

In The Netherlands we also have lots of snow. A beautiful song, but thank you for the translation, because otherwise I wouldn't have understood it.
I love your snowmanquilt.

Beautiful song! I have also spent my fourth advent inside... sewing, cleaning, listening julmusik and all kind of wintersport from tv... because outside there is windy and snowflakes are falling down. Jag vill önska till dig varm och innerlig Julen!

Why has it been so long since I've visited? I was flipping through the blogs today and thought, "Where's Anne's posts at?" Well guess what? When I switched from Bloglines to Google Reader I somehow forgot to add you in! Look at all I've missed! Looks like you've been quilting up a storm and your projects are as gorgeous as ever!!!
