Our Winter days here begin and end with glorious skies. The sun-warmed sky of the early morning glowing with golden fire and the tell-tale dusky pink sky-ribbon that signals a cold night ahead. These days begin and end with extra layers, jumpers upon jumpers and thick socks within slippers all encased in an extra blanket or two. As each day warms, as most do during our Winter, we peel off some of this extra warmth but enough remains to remind us that this is the coldest season of our year.
Now is a time of year I relish for its distinct difference to our Summers; those scorching days seem far away...
The gentle light of a fragrant candle.
Warm and nourishing porridge.
A warm blanket for an old friend.
Hearty Winter soup.
The warming flames of a bonfire.
Loving // The gentleness of beautiful Winter's light.
Eating // Bowls of warming, nourishing soup.
Drinking // Pepperminty hot chocolates just so I can wrap my hands around the mug!
Feeling // Toasty in all my Winter layers.
Making // Time for sewing little things like this sweet tea towel bag.
Thinking // A fire pit in my backyard would be lovely!
Dreaming // ... of toasting jaffles and marshmallows in my imaginary fire pit!
