November is here (for those of you that still think it's oktober or some other month), has been for a while now, and it is definetly getting colder, and darker. I have been feeling tired (without having worked much) for the past days/weeks, and felt like hibernating (more information about hibernation can be found at the end of this post) and just sleep and sleep, like a bear, and not come out untill christmas, and then after that come out a few times to go snowboarding, and then after that not come out untill spring again (okay, I'll probably come out for Easter too). I've also felt like flying off to a beautiful, warm island with fantastic beaches, in the south pacific or somewhere... :) I go there in my imagination sometimes. (Hawaii wouldn't be so bad right now, to be honest). Oh well, I'll survive the winter, with lighting lots of candles all the time, wrapping myself in blankets, drinking alot of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and other warm drinks and doing cozy stuff inside, and going outside every now and then while it's still light.

Actually, last tuesday me and a friend had a picnic outside, in a park, with hot chocolate, freshly baked scones and other good stuff, it was a beautiful, sunny day, and the fall-leaves on the ground, and a few up in the trees were still a bit yellow. After the picnic we went to Munch museum- which is just next to the park. It made me feel really cultural.

Hibernation is a state of inactivity and metabolic depression in animals, characterized by lower body temperature, slower breathing, and lower metabolic rate, to conserve energy, especially during winter. Hibernation may last several days or weeks depending on species, ambient temperature, and time of year. Typically, the winter season for the hibernator is characterized by periods of hibernation interrupted by periodic euthermic arousals wherein body temperature is restored to typical values. Hibernation allows animals to conserve energy during the winter when food is short. During hibernation, animals slow their metabolism to a very low level to allow them to use their energy reserves, stored as body's fat, at a slower rate.
