Embracing the cold…

It’s getting cold again.

We have spent the day in the garden while the weather is still forgiving, soaking up the dwindling rays of sun. We have moved vegetable beds into sunnier positions, planted out lots of winter treats and tucked them in with heat holding mulch. It does my heart good to have my hands in the earth.

We have had the fire going on and off for a few weeks now and the leaves are turning on the trees. I love this time of year. My feathery friends Minxy, Ginger, Lola, Phoebe and Gracie are fluffing up and putting on their winter feathers and all is right with the world. My beloved is playing his guitar and I am singing along badly but it makes us both smile and isn’t that the point of it all.

These quiet homely days are my favourites. They are a balm for my soul when the world can be full of busy and doing-ness.

So hello again after my longish absence… I hope you are happy and well.
