So Very Cozy

Ah yes...Old Man Winter and Mother Nature teasing us. Last week we sat out on our porch, listening to the birds chirp and noticed that the lilac bushes had buds on them...the a couple of days ago it snowed, and sifted a layer of magical layer of powdered sugar all over the evergreens. So, I made a fire, lit the candles, put on some nice relaxing music and savoring the evening.

I hope you are all cozy, happy and content. Maybe a dog or cat on your lap, with a cup of tea, and a wonderful book to read, and a handmade blanket to keep you warm. Enjoy the quiet of winter, the solitude it provides for reflection, daydreaming, and looking at that David Austin rose catalog trying to figure out what kind of roses you want to plant in the spring.

Warmly,
Nancy

We got a dusting of snow Friday night as well -- and just when we thought winter was over!

But there's nothing like a fire to keep you warm and candles for atmosphere!

Spring is coming -- next week will be March!

Love the fire as you know.
What are you calling the fog we have had for the last two days. I like the description of the others but not too sure about this fog!

Have a great evening!

Hi Nancy,
I loved your post! Every night I cuddle with a home made blanket by the fire watching T.V and listening to Gary snore in his chair....LOL while I'm trying to watch T.V.
I'm looking forward to all the spring flowers but not the summer..I such a wimp with the heat.
Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth
