But the true fair, that is the gentle wit

It has been cold, -8 °C last night, and the forecast promises almost as cold for this night. I went with the children to the Helsinki Book Fair, to have a look what is on offer. There were a lot of people there, and it was a bit tiring to walk around the halls, but it was nice anyway. I didn't buy any books for myself, but the children all found something they liked. Not a bad day, but tomorrow I'm planning to be outside, looking at the frosty landscape.
