cozy . . .

Winter has finally arrived:

Today

Chance of flurries

High : 0°C | POP : 60%

 

The wind was high last night and the temperature dropped to freezing.

I woke up to the news that the western end of the Island, which is  known locally as “up west” while our end of the island is called “down east”, is covered with 20 cm of heavy snow.

We just had a few flurries.

There was a light dusting of snow covering my petunias. I guess I’ll finally have to pull them out.

Here’s a picture from last week – petunias in Nov. They did well didn’t they?

 The house is snug this morning – the fire in the stove is crackling

Sophie is in her favourite spot and the kitties are purring at my feet.

I’m in a fleece hoodie sipping a hot coffee au lait.

Snug, comfortable, and warm – a cozy feeling.

Winter makes me feel that way – especially when I’m in by the fire šŸ™‚

and so, oddly enough, does this little honeybee pot.

I just had to buy it – I looked at and fell in cozy love with it.

Why?

I have no idea.

Little dishes do it to me – and kittens – and puppies – and babies – small children with rosy cheeks – and old hard-covered books – and out of the way  tea-rooms with little teapots and matching cream  and sugar dishes. And old fashioned candy shoppes with striped candy in tall glass jars  – and tree forts – and quilts. and red wooden sleds. And striped knitted mittens. And candles in candlestick holders. And a boiled egg in a china egg cup. And geraniums on the windowsill. And a tiny silver sugar spoon.

I know there are more.

But I don’t know why they do what they do to me. (isn’t that a song :)?

Do you?

It’s a sweet feeling.

Wishing you a cozy day my friends.

Pooh would cetainly approve. ; )Lovely to linger in your special place. Thanks for holding the door open despite the chill.

  3. I live in the Midwest of the USA and we had a call two days ago that the town where my husband grew up right outside of Chicago had received eight to ten inches of snow. I don’t think I’m quite ready for that much this year but I am enjoying colder temperatures.The cold makes me want to get the entire house decluttered and cozy!

  4. Well. I don’t know how anyone could *help* but feel cosy after reading this! šŸ™‚ I can’t even *imagine* petunias right now. Everything that was blooming here two months ago as been reduced to dry brown stalks! But I do know the feeling of cosy warmth from a woodstove. And that honey pot is adorable! Fun.Susan šŸ™‚

    I recently bought that exact same honey pot! I found it in a thrift shop. It’s the most adorable thing. Funny how we can find the same item thousands of miles apart. Amazing. šŸ™‚

  8. I love that cozy feeling! I’m trying to think through how to describe it, and I can’t really either! (Thankfully no one can see all the expressions on my face…they’re describing the feeling for me!!) Loved the coziness of your pictures, too! Enjoy the beauty of the weather and the warmth of your fire!
