Yesterday and today continues
to be very
bitter and cold outside.
This means it is a
perfect opportunity for
a happy teatime.
My husband and I find it interesting the
way that with just a little snow, everything
shuts down here in Missouri. It brings
back so many memories of living in Colorado
where everyone went to work and it really
took a blizzard to make a difference.
I have a couple of new magazines
I have been enjoying.
English Garden and Tea Time have
brought a lovely reprieve lately.
Winter is a time to get inspired
and excited about our spring gardens.
Wintertime is always a good time
to try new recipes and brush up
on our baking skills. Please
enjoy a cup of tea and one of these
chocolate chip cookies I baked this week.
My friend Gina dropped off a lovely
Valentine card she made.
So I hope that your wintertime
is going along well. If you are
bored, this might be a great time
to learn something new. How about
doing a new craft, trying a new recipe
reading that book on the shelf.
And so I close this post to challenge you
to find joy in the little things. Make a
nice homemade soup. Do something not
very popular today - send an elderly person
a handwritten letter or take something
home baked to a neighbor. You can even
buy those frozen bread loaves and let
them rise and bake them. Make some
homemade cards to have on hand for
when you need them. Enjoy winter
will be here soon!
