Winter has finally arrived:
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 🙂
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.
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 :)?
It’s a sweet feeling.
Wishing you a cozy day my friends.
